Abstract: Dupuytren’s disease is a common, benign disease in which myofibroblasts in the aponeurosis of the hand start to proliferate, contract and produce pathological collagen. This results in a Dupuytren cord, which eventually tethers the involved finger and reduces the extension of the involved joints- a Dupuytren contracture. The Dupuytren cord can be divided either mechanically through percutaneous needle fasciotomy (PNF) or by chemical digestion using injectable collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum... more
