Dupuytren disease is highly prevalent and the finger contractures can be very extensile, compromising the patients' hand function. To restore full function, contractures have been addressed by cutting the causative strands for nearly 200 years, ever since Baron Guillaume Dupuytren demonstrated his technique at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Surgery can be minimal (fasciotomy) or quite invasive (fasciectomy and even skin replacement). However, in the last decade translational research has introduced the non-surgical technique of enzymatic fasciotomy with collagenase injections...

PURPOSE: To develop a novel conformal superficial brachytherapy (CSBT) device as a treatment option for the patient-specific radiation therapy of conditions including superficial lesions, postsurgical positive margins, Dupuytren's contractures, keloid scars, and complex anatomic sites (eyelids, nose, ears, etc.). METHODS AND MATERIALS: A preliminary CSBT device prototype was designed, built, and tested using readily available radioactive seeds. Iodine-125 ((125)I) seeds were independently guided to the treatment surface to conform to the target...

OBJECTIVE: Secondary effects and drug reactions relative to collagenase Clostridium histolyticum treatment for Dupuytren's contracture are frequent. In only a few cases these secondary effects are considered serious. The mechanism that produces these effects of production is not well understood. CLINICAL REPORT: We present the case report of a woman with fifth finger interphalangeal joint treatment with generalized skin rash as a complication of collagenase Clostridium histolyticum treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Since Dupuytren's contracture is a common disorder, the costs for its surgical treatment impose a considerable burden on the healthcare system. For the first time in the German-speaking area, this study aimed to provide a comparative cost-effectiveness analysis for partial fasciectomy vs. treatment with Clostridium histolyticum collagenase (CCH). METHODS: A retrospective monocentric study of the period from 2012 to 2014 comprised 40 patients with previously untreated Dupuytren's contracture of one finger...

PURPOSE: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the use of collagenase Clostridium histolyticum (CCH) in the United States in February 2010. This study addresses the impact of that approval on the number of Dupuytren contracture (DC) encounters and treatment patterns in the United States. METHODS: Using the Intercontinental Marketing Services Health Office-Based Medical Claims database, we identified the monthly number of DC encounters and DC procedures between January 2007 and December 2013...

BACKGROUND: Dupuytren's disease is a common fibrotic disorder of the palm characterized by the development of progressive flexion deformities in the digits, leading to significant functional impairment. Surgical excision remains the most common treatment. However, this is only indicated in patients with established contractures rather than those with early disease. Early disease is generally characterized by the presence of palmar nodules with limited or no contracture of the fingers...

: Variables associated with recurrent Dupuytren's disease, or a 'diathesis', have been investigated, but those associated with functional outcome and complications are less well studied. Outcomes 1 or 5 years after an aponeurotomy, fasciectomy or dermofasciectomy were assessed by patient interview and examination at five UK centres. A total of 432 procedures were studied. The reoperation rate did not differ at 1 year (p = 0.396, Chi-square test with Monte Carlo simulation), but was higher after aponeurotomy in the 5-year group (30%, versus 6% after fasciectomy and 0% after dermofasciectomy, p = 0...

PURPOSE: The brief Michigan Hand Outcomes Questionnaire (briefMHQ) was developed as a shorter version of the Michigan Hand Outcomes Questionnaire (MHQ), but its measurement properties have not been investigated in patients with Dupuytren contracture. The objective of the study was to investigate the reliability, validity, responsiveness, and interpretability of the briefMHQ. METHODS: Fifty-seven patients diagnosed with Dupuytren contracture completed the briefMHQ as well as the full-length MHQ and Quick Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (QuickDASH) questionnaire at baseline...

BACKGROUND: Our main goal was to see if treatment with collagenase injection is safe and effective and to assess patient satisfaction with this new treatment. METHODS: We prospectively followed 77 consecutive patients, treated for contracture in 91 fingers and 142 joints that received total of 109 collagenase injections. The patients were reviewed on the first and second day and at 4 and 12 months. A contracture reduced to five degrees or less at 12 months after the last injection, was considered to be a successful outcome...

Purpose The purpose of this study is to examine the activity of collagenase from cultures of Vibrio alginolyticus as in vitro as in biological samples and to evaluate clinical perspectives of this product about the treatment of fibroproliferative diseases like Dupuytren's contracture. Methods The experimental part of the study has been divided in 2 stages. In the first stage, the collagenase has been produced in laboratory, assessing its purity, verifying the in vitro degradation of collagen by the enzyme and measuring the size of the fragments; in the second part, an experimental injection into samples of fibrous cord typical of Dupuytren's disease has been performed in vitro...

Dupuytren's disease (DD) is a common fibroproliferative condition of the hand which tends to cause progressive digital flexion contracture. Therapeutic strategies to treat the disease include radiotherapy, injections of collagenase clostridium histolyticum, needle fasciotomy and extended surgical intervention dependent on involvement and duration of the disease. We have reviewed the literature with the aim to assess the conditions and effects of radiotherapy in DD. In early stages of the disease, radiotherapy resulted in regression of symptoms/a lack of progression found on average in 40% (range 10-85%)/81% (range 50-100%) of the patients with recurrence rates of only 12-31% after long-term follow-up (>4 years)...

Joseph Gensoul was a pioneer of ENT surgery. In 1827, he performed the first total maxillectomy on 17-year-old boy. His work inspired many surgeons, who were previously unwilling to remove maxillary tumours. A paleopathological study performed in the Dupuytren museum allowed us to identify a skull from the early 19th century, with a large maxillar tumour. There were indications that this skull was operated according to Gensoul's technique. The aim of this study is to confirm that this patient had, in fact, received this surgical treatment...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous needle aponeurotomy is a less invasive surgical alternative to limited fasciectomy for Dupuytren's contracture, but appeared less efficacious in a previous randomized clinical trial. This study compared the effectiveness of both techniques in contemporary clinical practice. METHODS: The authors evaluated prospectively gathered data from all patients who were treated with percutaneous needle aponeurotomy or limited fasciectomy between 2011 and 2014 at six hand surgery practice sites in The Netherlands...

Penile traction therapy (PTT) is a new therapeutic option for men with Peyronie's disease (PD). However, it has a long history of use in other fields of medicine including bone, skin, skeletal muscle, and Dupuytren's. Mechanotransduction, or gradual expansion of tissue by traction, leads to the formation of new collagen tissue by cellular proliferation. As a molecular result, continuous extension of the fibrous plaque causes significant increases in collagenase and metalloproteinases, and, ultimately, to fibrous plaque softening and extension...

BACKGROUND: As an alternative to needle aponeurotomy release and limited fasciectomy treatment of Dupuytren's contracture, the authors introduced an extensive percutaneous aponeurotomy and lipofilling (PALF) procedure. In their previous study, the authors reported that contractures significantly improved and most patients returned to normal use of the hand within 2 to 4 weeks. To establish the safety and efficacy of PALF, the authors compared it to the standard limited fasciectomy in a single-blind, multicenter, prospective, randomized, controlled trial...
