Literature presents several examples of surgical techniques for the treatment of carpometacarpal osteoarthritis. In our study we used a modified Ceruso's suspended arthroplasty technique. In this study, 53 patients from 2011 to 2017 underwent arthroplasty with trapezius excision and suture suspension between abductor pollicis longus and flexor carpi radialis. The average age at surgery was 69, the participants were 43 women and 10 men. The average total operation time was 59 minutes. The modified CMC suspension arthroplasty technique provides excellent results compared with those in the literature.
