Abstract: In this series, several preoperative factors influencing the outcome in surgically treated patients with carpometacarpal osteoarthritis of the thumb were analyzed. Thirty-six patients were studied. Hand dominance, interphalangeal joint motion, radiographic stage, and surgical procedure did not reach significance. In contrast, age, first web retraction, and hyperextension of the metacarpophalangeal joint were considered valuable in predicting the ultimate outcome.
