Ecoguided injections to treat osteoarthritis of the thumb, hand, and wrist

Echoguiding is an extremely sophisticated technique that helps improve the reliability and precision of intra-articular injections while minimizing patient discomfort. Dr. Jean-Paul Brutus practices two types of echoguided injections in his treatment of rhizarthrosis and osteoarthritis of the hand and wrist.

Viscosupplementation

Viscosupplementation consists in injecting a solution of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in the human body – into a joint that has been damaged by degenerative arthritis. The gel acts as a cushion and substitute lubricant to compensate for the synovial fluid that usually surrounds the joint but has diminished due to the arthritis. One or more injections may be necessary; symptoms are eased, often for up to several months.

Cortisone injections

This treatment consists in injecting a cortisone-based anti-inflammatory product, which provides relief from pain and inflammation in a matter of hours. Its beneficial effect can last for up to several months.

Benefits of echoguided injections

  • Treatment takes just minutes
  • Greater reliability and precision
  • Higher success rates
  • Minimal discomfort

Studies have shown that ultrasound monitoring can significantly improve the success rate of intra-articular injections.
