Extension osteotomy of the first metacarpal is considered extra-articular outside the joint procedure. First refers to the thumb as the digits on the hand are numbered from one to five, starting with the thumb. The metacarpal bone is the long bone of the thumb from the base of the wrist to the first knuckle on the thumb.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate long-term outcomes of first metacarpal extension osteotomy for early trapeziometacarpal arthritis. We retrospectively reviewed 13 patients who underwent first metacarpal extension osteotomy at our institution between and and obtained subjective and objective outcome data. Mean follow-up was 9.

The purpose of this study was to introduce arthroscopic partial trapeziectomy and tendon interposition for the treatment of symptomatic thumb carpometacarpal arthritis of Eaton stage II or III. From August to April23 patients with thumb carpometacarpal arthritis were treated using this technique. The postoperative range of motion was
