Abstract

Posttraumatic instability of the carpometacarpal joint of the thumb are rarely reported. Consequently little is known about clinical and radiologic diagnosis, natural progress or treatment method. We report three cases of chronic instability of the carpometacarpal joint of the thumb treated with Eaton and Littler's ligament reconstruction. Satisfactory thumb functions were restored without arthritic change or recurrent subluxation.
