Webinar purpose

Together with the foot the hand is usually the first site of predilection in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Due to modern drug therapies, the severity and the number of surgical interventions have decreased in the last 20 years. Nevertheless, even today there are still patients who show strong structural changes that are only accessible to surgical therapy.

This webinar is intended to provide an overview of the typical changes and their surgical therapeutic approaches in RA. All involved speakers are renowned specialists in the field of rheumatoid hand surgery and have been working at recognized centers for rheumatoid surgery for many years.

The most important pathoanatomical changes and their therapeutic options on the wrist, the metacarpophalangeal joints and deformities of the fingers are presented.
