Dupuytren’s Contracture

What is Dupuytren’s Contracture?

Dupuytren’s contracture is a condition that causes the connective tissue of the palm to form thick cords and lumps. These cords can slowly shorten over time, preventing the fingers from fully straightening. In severe cases one or more of the fingers may become curled into the palm. Dupuytren’s contracture can make it difficult to open the hand, which leads to problems with grasping objects, washing your face and putting your hand in your pockets.

Treatment for Dupuytren’s Contracture

Dupuytren’s contracture tends to run in families but is also associated with several medical conditions. Patients with significant Dupuytren’s contracture may benefit from Dupuytren’s contracture excision.
