Dupuytren Contracture eMedicine Orthopedics

Dupuytren contracture, a disease of the palmar fascia, results in the thickening and shortening of fibrous bands in the hands and fingers. This disease entity belongs to the group of fibromatoses that include plantar fibromatosis (Ledderhose disease), penile fibromatosis (Peyronie disease), and fibromatosis of the dorsal proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joints (Garrod nodes or knuckle pads). Guillaume Dupuytren received recognition for the condition that came to be associated with his name because of his expertise on the clinical findings, pathogenesis, prognosis, and treatment of this disease; however, Plater and Cline respectively provided the earliest known records of Dupuytren contracture and its surgical treatment (Verheyden, 1983).

Dupuytren contracture is a benign, slowly progressive fibroproliferative disease of the palmar fascia that has no clear etiology or pathogenesis. Plater first described this condition in 1614, but it was Dupuytren who presented a meticulous anatomical study in 1831 that established the palmar fascia as the site of origin. The site of origin distinguishes it from other causes of finger contracture. Dupuytren also devised an effective surgical approach through palmar fasciotomy.

Dupuytren's contracture

Conclusions Between 2003 and 2008, fasciectomy was the most common surgical procedure for DC in England. While procedure rates and physician specialties varied little, there was a reversal in surgical venue: inpatient operations decreased as day case procedures increased. The change is likely due to economic trends and changes to the healthcare system. Estimated costs for 2010-2011 varied by procedure type and patient status. These findings can be used to understand clinical management of DC and guide health care policy.

BMJ 2006;332:397-400 (18 February), W A Townley, R Baker, N Sheppard, A O Grobbelaar
Dupuytren's disease is a common and disabling fibroproliferative condition of the hand. It tends to strike patients in advancing age, causing progressive digital flexion contracture. Through its many associations, Dupuytren's disease crosses all borders of medicine and is often encountered by surgeon, physician, and general practitioner alike. To the medical student, it is dependable examination fodder—a name on many lists and a sign of many systems.

Needle Release for Dupuyrtens

Needle Aponeurotomy (Needle Aponevrotomy or NA) is a minimally invasive treatment for Dupuytren's contracture. In contrast to surgical treatment, which requires several months of recovery, Needle Aponeurotomy allows a more rapid recovery. In most cases, it is possible to return to near normal activities without bandages within a few days of treatment. Patient Information

New Approach for Dupuytren's Contracture

Dupuytren's contracture is a progressively debilitating hand disease that involves an abnormal thickening and contracture of tough tissue in the palm, causing the fingers to curl. Although fasciectomy is usually recommended to release the contracture when hand function becomes severely limited, a less incapacitating and more inexpensive option — needle aponeurotomy — has recently become available

Palmar fasciitis and arthritis in a patient with an extraovarian adenocarcinoma of the coelomic epithelium

P H Willemse, N H Mulder, H J van de Tempel, J G Aalders, and D T Sleijfer Ann Rheum Dis. 1991 January; 50(1): 53–54.
Abstract A 54 year old woman presented with an intra-abdominal adenocarcinoma of primary coelomic origin and a syndrome of palmar fasciitis and arthritis, which was exacerbated during treatment by combination chemotherapy with intravenous carboplatin 300 mg/m2 and cyclophosphamide 750 mg/m2, while the tumour responded well.
