Abstract

Resection arthroplasty is an old, and yet reliable, solution for the isolated osteoarthritis (OA) of some joints of the hand. With complication low rates, this technically undemanding option is ideal for scapho-trapezial-trapezoidal joint OA, as well as for the OA of the carpometacarpal joints of the fingers. This paper reviews its indications, surgical technique, and results.
