This study is designed to define the impact of thumb arthritis on patient's general health. As a secondary objective, data will be analyzed to determine the effects of medical and musculoskeletal comorbidities on the rating of upper extremity function by the patient.
Potential Contribution: The data that we intend to gather could further our understanding of the overall health impact of thumb osteoarthritis and allow surgeons to more accurately interpret patient-rated measures of upper extremity function in the presence of comorbidities.
Osteoarthritis of the thumb carpometacarpal joint is one of the most common sites of arthritic degeneration in the hand. To date, no study has examined this conditions impact on overall health using a validated health measure (e.g. SF-36). Additionally, no study has examined the impact of medical and musculoskeletal comorbidities on patient-rated measures of upper extremity function in these patients.
