CMC Arthroplasty

A suspensory button approach

Carpometacarpal Suspensionplasty is performed on patients who suffer from basal joint arthritis found within the trapezium bone of the carpometacarpal (CMC) joint, resulting in joint space narrowing, instability, and dislocation. Partial or full Trapeziectomies are performed to remove the diseased tissue from the joint, and the first and second metacarpal are fixated via a suspensory device to maintain proper functioning. CMC Suspension offers patients a faster recovery time and earlier patient mobility compared to alternative techniques for CMC Arthroplasty.1
