About

The primary objective of this study is to identify determinants of long-term patient satisfaction after hand reconstruction using silicone metacarpophalangeal arthroplasty (SMPA). The investigators hypothesize that appearance of the hand, ulnar drift, range of motion, pain, hand function and intake of the newer antirheumatic drugs (i.e. biologicals) influence patient satisfaction.
