Pyrocarbon & Silicone MCP Total Joint

Choosing the pyrocarbon or the silicon joint replacement intraoperatively helps you to limit uncertainty during your MCP replacement cases.

Only MCP system with two implant options using same instrumentation Pyrocarbon and Silicone:

  • Intraoperative choice with user friendly color coded instrumentation

Features & benefits 

Pyrocarbon MCP

  • Anatomical
  • Design to restore functional joint mechanics and normal range of motion
  • Cementless

Silicone MCP

  • 30°pre-flexed implant, silicone spacer
  • Design to match the approximate natural flexion position of the joint when the hand is relaxed

Both implants are available in 5 sizes and use the same color-coded instrumentation, providing an intraoperative choice.
Successful use of these implants depends in particular on proper patient selection, surgical technique, and postoperative therapy.

Indications

Pyrocarbon MCP
The Pyrocarbon MCP is indicated for use as a total joint replacement of index, long, ring, and small finger metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joints that exhibit symptoms of pain, limited motion, or inadequate bony alignment (i.e., subluxation/dislocation) secondary to articular destruction or degenerative disease related to rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, osteoarthritis, or post-traumatic arthritis where soft tissue reconstruction can provide adequate stabilization.

Silicone MCP
The Ascension® Silicone MCP Finger Joint Prosthesis is intended for cementless replacement of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint, where disabled by rheumotoid, degenerative, or traumatic arthritis.

Contraindications

Pyrocarbon MCP
Inadequate bone stock at the implantation site

  • Active infection in the MCP joint
  • Nonfunctioning and irreparable MCP musculotendinous system
  • Physical interference with or by other prostheses during implantation or use
  • Procedures requiring modification of the prosthesis
  • Skin, bone, circulatory and/or neurological deficiency at the implantation site

Silicone MCP
Active local or systemic infection ; Destruction of the metacarpal, phalanx, or phalanges or poor bone quality which prevents adequate fixation of the implant; Loss of musculature, neuromuscular compromise, or vascular deficiency in the affected fingers ; Growing patients with open epiphyses ; Patient with high activity levels ; and patients unwilling or unable to comply with physician’s instructions.
