Dupuytren’s disease treatment
Dupuytren’s disease is a hereditary fibroproliferative disease commonly affecting the palmar fascia of the hand, which results in progressive and irreversibly fixed flexion contractures of the hand. It may occur in the sole of the foot or in the penis. Generally, treatment has been up against a high frequency of complications and recurrence, but promising results are reported from less invasive treatment options, e.g. needle fasciotomy and enzymatic fasciotomy with collagenase. This is a detailed, comparative review of available non-operative and surgical treatments with focus on the enzymatic fasciotomy.
