Complications Related to Metal-on-Metal Articulation in Trapeziometacarpal Joint Total Joint Arthroplasty.

Frølich C, Hansen TB - J Funct Biomater (2015)

Bottom Line: Adverse reactions to metal-on-metal (MoM) prostheses are well known from total hip joint resurfacing arthroplasty with elevated serum chrome or cobalt, pain and pseudo tumor formation.It may, however, also be seen after total joint replacement of the trapeziometacarpal joint using MoM articulation, and we present two cases of failure of MoM prostheses due to elevated metal-serum levels in one case and pseudo tumor formation in another case.Furthermore, we suggest a diagnostic algorithm for joint pain after MoM trapeziometacarpal joint replacement based on published experiences from MoM hip prostheses and adverse reactions to metal.

Mentions: Based on the experiences from complications in MoM total joint hip arthroplasty we suggest a diagnostic algorithm (Figure 5) in the patient presenting with a painful thumb following surgery with MoM trapeziometacarpal arthroplasty.
