Integra Ascension MCP Joint Replacement™
Integra Ascension MCP Joint Replacement™ is a PyroCarbon based joint replacement that takes advantage of exceptional wear characteristics and bio- compatibility of PyroCarbon for the replacement of the MCPJ. The system uses two articulating implants with high-congruence and the body’s natural ligaments and joint capsules to recreate the MCPJ.
This can be done through an S-shaped or straight longitudinal incision over the knuckle. This implant allows for maintenance of more natural motion at the joint and often significant pain relief to restore function to a painful hand.
