Dupuytren’s Disease

  • Dupuytren’s Disease

Description of disability:

Background Dupuytren's disease limits hand function, diminishes the quality of life, and may ultimately disable the hand. Surgery followed by hand therapy is standard treatment. Some degree of skin contracture in the palm is present in probably 90 per cent. of cases of Dupuytren's contracture. It is the flexion deformity of the metacarpal-phalangeal joints which causes the greatest disablement and the primary object of the fasciectomy is to release them.

Post operative care:

Routine postoperative measures of rest, elevation and immobilization of the part are followed.
