Abstract
Between 1980 and 1983, 10 patients received high performance silicone rubber condylar implants for the treatment of isolated degenerative changes of the scaphotrapezial joint. Early clinical and radiographic results (at a mean of 15 months) were excellent. Late follow up of these 10 together with a further 11 patients, however, showed migration of the implant and radiological signs of silicone particle synovitis in all but two. We no longer recommend this operation for treatment of isolated arthrosis of the scaphotrapezial joint.
