Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of an active stabilization exercise program for thumb carpometacarpal degenerative joint disease to reduce pain and improve daily function.

Closed for enrollment
The purpose of this study is to determine is the Stablyx ® CMC arthroplasty system provides acceptable outcomes for patients.
The purpose of this study is to compare the techniques of ligament reconstruction tendon interposition (LRTI) and arthrodesis for the treatment of trapezio-metacarpal (TMC) joint arthritis in terms of patients’ satisfaction, pain reduction, strength, motion and radiographic outcomes.
The purpose of this study is to assess the accuracy of range of motion (ROM) measurements of the wrist and hand taken in person versus ROM taken during a telemedicine video interview.
Open for enrollment
Tightrope arthroplasty and ligament reconstruction with tendon interposition (LRTI) are both acceptable treatment options for painful arthritis at the thumb carpometacarpal joint. Advocates of the tightrope arthroplasty often cite early postoperative mobilization as a benefit to using this technique over alternative procedures. However, early postoperative rehabilitation protocols are used following the LRTI technique at our institution as well. Our study aims to clarify whether early mobilization following LRTI results in different short-term outcomes compared to tightrope arthroplasty.
