Abstract

Trapeziometacarpal prosthesis by metallic implant is used to treat thumb carpometacarpal osteoarthritis. Many causes of failure have been described whereas revision techniques still remain a challenging surgery. In this article, we describe a revision strategy in a failed metallic cemented trapeziometacarpal implant with major first metacarpal shortening.
