Dupuytren contracture and the other hand contractures.
Fingers and hands – are extremely important in our lives. Without them we could not do anything. It is for a cause, that they say that a man who can’t do anything right “has his hands coming out of the wrong place”.
Timely untreated hands and fingers diseases progress and may even become a cause of disability.
There are dozens of hand diseases, some of them are congenital, and others come out with age, the thirds one are caused by trauma. Our GK Clinic specialists will help you not only to determine the cause of deformation, or pains in your hands or fingers, but will also find a suitable treatment whether it is an operational or a non invasive method.
What are the most common hand diseases?
Frequently patients report such ones:
- Snapping “trigger” finger syndrome (stenosing tenosynovitis);
- Hand ganglion, (synovial hernia)
- fingers attracted to the palm (Dupuytren contracture);
- numb fingers and so on.
Finger contracture (Dupuytren contracture) – what sort of a disease is it?
The disease affects the palm or fingers and looks like one or more calluses which look like little lumps and are solid as a scar. They interfere with the palm and fingers stretching out, so the fingers look as if “attracted” to the palm. This scar often involves the skin and subcutaneous tissue layer, but does not affect tendons. This finger position (caused by the disease) is a serious problem in daily activities, while doing anything with your hands.
What causes the Dupuytren disease?
The causes of the disease are unclear, it usually affects men over 40 years old, and is often observed as cases of family illness.
How to treat this disease?
There is only one way to cure this disease – through surgery. It is very important to operate this disease in time, because delays can cause stiff joints, and the treatment becomes more and more difficult.
