If so, you may be able to receive the benefits of the Cartiva device in an area other than the joint of your big toe. Cartiva can also be used for the following other indications:
Cartiva can be used as a substitute for the damaged articular cartilage in your knee. The device provides a viable alternative to those patients seeking relief for their knee pain but not wanting a total knee replacement.
Cartiva can also be used to treat osteoarthritis at the base of the thumb. The implant relieves pain and restores range of motion by allowing the bones around the thumb to glide smoothly over one another.
For Instructions for Use in other commercial areas outside the United States, please contact your local sales representative or Cartiva Customer Service.
