Creation of the abductor pollicis longus suspensionplasty The APL slip is poked through the capsule to within the arthroplasty space, and using a rightangle clamp, passed through a slit in the FCR tendon (Fig. 2D,E). The thumb is positioned so that it rests on the index finger in the fisted positionddistracted so that the metacarpal base is at the level of the index carpometacarpal (CMC) joint. A Kirschner wire is not placed. The APL slip is pulled taut, and a 3-0 vicryl suture is placed between APL slip at the level of the metacarpal base, and the extensor pollicis brevis (EPB) tendon (radially) and the tissue deep to the extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon (ulnarly).

E) Magnified view (black arrow identifies the FCR tendon). Capsular closure and rehabilitation The capsule is closed and a thumb spica splint is placed for 10 days. At that visit a thumb spica cast is placed for 3 weeks. At approximately 4 weeks after surgery, a forearm-based thumb-spica splint is made and range-of-motion exercises begin. Opposition across the palm is avoided until 2 months after surgery, but thenar isometrics begin as soon as comfort allows. Pinch and grip strengthening generally begins around 6 to 8 weeks after surgery, and most patients are weaned from their splint by 10 weeks.

These reports, of varying follow-up duration, have typically included clinical information on finger alignment and joint range of motion with radiographic data including implant fracture rate. The reports (Table 1) have provided valuable data that have, on most issues, been homogeneous. At less than 10-year follow-up, improved function was noted in 60% to 75% of patients, improved appearance was noted in 42% to 82% of patients, and pain was present in up to 50% of patients [4–14]. These data have been used by most investigators to justify silicone implant arthroplasty but, for at least one set of investigators, these data have led to a discontinuance of the procedure [12].
