CMC and PIP Joint Arthroplasty
CMC are the Carpometacarpal joint that makes the base joints for the thumb, the carpel bone and a metacarpal of the thumb together. The CMC joint is the place which is mostly affected with arthritis. The arthritis in the CMC joints occur when the flexible tissue that covers and protects the joints wears out. PIP joint replacements are the surgical techniques used in the treatment of Proximal Interphalangeal Joint injuries. Psoriatic arthritis, gout, chondrocalcinosis, and reactive arthritis are the minor contributor for the joint pains, but osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the primary contributors that focused for the surgical intervention. Mostly patients are not suggested with surgeries, they are provided with the Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs to decrease the deformity of the bones. The surgical methods are prevalent only to those patients, to whom the drug has no effects in their cure.
