The purpose was to determine revision rates after trapeziometacarpal total joint arthroplasty in working age patients, hypothesizing that higher occupational hand force requirements lead to higher revision rates. We conducted a follow-up study of patients operated 2003-2015. Self-reported job titles at the time of primary surgery were linked with a job exposure matrix to estimate occupational hand force requirements. Time until revision was analysed using Cox regression. The study comprised 222 patients aged 39-65 years (mean 55, SD 6), including 133 patients in the labour market. The median follow-up period was 5 years (interquartile range 4-7) and the overall revision rate was 5/100 person-years. For high versus low occupational hand force requirements, the hazard ratio was 1.5 (95% confidence interval 0.5-4.4). For patients outside the labour market, the hazard ratio was 2.3 (0.9-5.6). Our results did not indicate large effects of high occupational hand force requirements on revision rates.Level of evidence: IV.
