By April 24, 2015News

Anne is pleased to report that the third cochrane review update of Surgery for thumb (trapeziometacarpal joint) osteoarthritis has recently been published in the Cochrane Library.

This review analysed 11 randomised clinical trials including 670 participants having seven different surgical procedures.  It identified that no technique conferred any benefit over another in terms of pain or physical function.

Further, there was no evidence to suggest that any procedure was associated with more adverse effects than another.
