The Instratek® CMC Cable FIX™ is a suture button implant designed to stabilize the thumb metacarpal following removal or partial resection of the trapezium (trapezium excision). The carpometacarpal joint (CMC) has an anatomic configuration that allows vital motion and hand function. Unfortunately this predisposes the thumb joint to a degenerative painful condition also known as basal thumb arthritis. The thumb joint of the hand is the second most common site afflicted by osteoarthritis; however, this disabling condition makes it the most common site for which surgery is sought. The CMC Cable FIX™ is a sterile procedure specific kit providing a percutaneou and quick alternative to traditional Ligament Reconstruction Tendon Interposition (LRTI) techniques. The Instratek CMC Cable FIX™ is intended to provide a stable, pain free thumb articulation for basal thumb arthrosis or instability of the carpometacarpal joint.
