What is rizarthrosis?
Rhizarthrosis is osteoarthritis of the joint at the base of the thumb. It is caused by wear or degeneration of the joint of the thumb (trapezometacarpal joint). The result is a stiff, painful joint, with limited mobility.
What procedure is used in the operation of the rizarthrosis?
The surgery involves replacing the arthritic bone, a procedure called arthroplasty. osteoarthritic trapezium bone is removed, and soft tissue of the wrist are taken to stabilize the remaining bone and create a spacer in the area where bone growth is removed. In patients with joint instability, but with minimal arthritic changes may be recommended surgical stabilization of the joint, but without arthroplasty. After surgery, the thumb is kept in a splint or cast for three to six weeks, depending on the technique used.
