Surgical Repair of Left Thumb Joint Instability

SKU: C21010

Surgery is performed to stabilize the left thumb joint. A small incision is made over the left thumb and the underlying metacarpophalangeal joint is exposed. The ulnar collateral ligament has distal fiber tears, causing the joint instability. The metacarpophalangeal joint capsule is opened, and the ulnar collateral ligament is detached from the proximal phalanx and reflected backward. The ligament tears are repaired with a modified Kessler technique. A hole is drilled in the proximal phalanx. The ligament is secured back in place with a suture anchor, and the joint capsule is sutured closed to strengthen the joint.
