  Purpose

The capitate had a widened distal base. The distal articulation can be used for proximal interphalangeal (PIP) articula reconstruction.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • range of motion [ Time Frame: 37 to 46 months postoperatively ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Active range of motion of the hand were measured by a goniometer.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • grip strength [ Time Frame: 37 to 46 months postoperatively ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The grip strength of the thumb to the injured finger was measured using dynamometers

  • pinch strength [ Time Frame: 37 to 46 months postoperatively ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The pinch strength of the thumb to the injured finger was measured using dynamometers

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Capitate bone grafting
18 patients with PIP joint defects were included in the study. There were 13 male and 5 female patients with a mean age of 31 years (range, 18-47 years). The injury occurred in the right hand in 11 patients and on the left hand in 7. The injured PIP joints were in the index finger (n=7), long finger (n=9), and ring finger (n=2).
Procedure: Capitate bone grafting
Capitate bone graft transfer for PIP joint reconstruction

Detailed Description:

Previous anatomical studies have shown that the capitate had a widened distal base. The distal articulation was mainly with the base of the third metacarpal and partially with the base of the second metacarpal. The articulation was slightly flattened with a convex and concave dorsal articular surface. The contour stimulates our imagination and creativity to use a portion of the articular surface for PIP arthroplasty.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 50 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. an articular defect at the proximal aspect of the PIP joint;
  2. the defect larger than 5 mm × 5 mm in size based on intraoperative findings.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. large defects involved double joint surfaces;
  2. the size of the defect less than 5 mm × 5 mm;
  3. mult-digital articular defects that all required osteoarticular grafting;
  4. associate with infection or other diseases that restrict to use the technique.
