The Modular Thumb implant is intended to treat basal thumb (CMC or carpometacarpal) joint arthritis. The Modular Thumb implant is not recommended for patients who, in addition to basal thumb arthritis, have arthritis in adjacent joints, such as the trapezium/scaphoid joint. As with any surgical procedure there are risks associated with hand surgery that you should discuss with your surgeon. These potential risks and complications with products used to treat thumb arthritis include infection at the incision site, pain, inflammation and swelling at implant site, allergic reaction to implant material(s), loosening or dislocation of the implant resulting in revision surgery, deterioration or loss of bone, over-production of bone, blood vessel blockage, and negative bodily response due to implant rejection and/or implant wear debris. In addition, your weight, age, and medical history determine your specific risks. Ask your doctor if hand surgery is right for you.
