Abstract

Traumatic isolated dislocation of the first carpometacarpal joint, treated with internal fixation and immobilisation for 6 weeks, yielded satisfactory results. However, clinical and X-ray examination at 18 months follow-up demonstrated slight instability. Open reduction and suture of ligament and capsule should be considered.
