Abstract: The most common implant options for the metacarpophalangeal joint arthroplasty include silicone, pyrocarbon and metal-polyethylene. A systematic review of outcomes of silicone and pyrocarbon implants was conducted; however, a similar exercise for metal-polyethylene implants revealed a scarcity of published results and lack of long-term follow-up studies. The aim of the present work is to test the hypothesis that the magnitude of metacarpophalangeal joint cyclic loads generates stress and strain behaviour, which leads to long-term reduced risk of metal-polyethylene component loosening.
