Participants fulfilling all of the following inclusion criteria are eligible for the project:
- Patients with rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) / Psoriasisarthritis / Lupus erythomatodes who had a SMPA between Jan 2007 and one year before the project examination

- Legal incompetence
- German language barrier to complete the questionnaires

- Procedure: silicone metacarpophalangeal arthroplasty (SMPA)
Replacement of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint using a silicone arthroplasty
- Satisfaction with the treatment result assessed on a 5-point Likert Scale [ Time Frame: at least one year after surgery ]
The primary outcome is the satisfaction with the treatment result at least one year after surgery and its determinants.
It will be quantified using this question: How satisfied are you with the overall result of the SMPA surgery? The response options are: Very satisfied (score 1), somewhat satisfied (score 2), neither satisfied nor unsatisfied (score 3), somewhat unsatisfied (score 4), very unsatisfied (score 5).
For further analyses, this question can be dichotomized into the categories of "satisfied patients" (very satisfied / satisfied) and "unsatisfied patients" (neither satisfied nor dissatisfied or worse).
