By Christian Ingram

SEATTLE — According to data presented at the American Society for Surgery of the Hand Annual Meeting, suture suspension arthroplasty can provide improved function and pain relief in patients who undergo thumb carpometacarpal arthritis reconstruction.

During her presentation, study author Jeanne L. DelSignore, MD, noted the suture suspension method is beneficial for “restoring the first web-space angle, maintaining arthroplasty height and effectively tethering the base of thumb towards the base of index metacarpal.”
