What is Dupuytren's contracture

With Dupuytren's contracture it is difficult not to be able to stretch the fingers completely. The striking thing is that the disease is mostly the most common in people who are older than 50 years, and often it is men who are affected by this.

The word Dupuytren literally means "contraction". With Dupuytren's contracture, there is a contraction of the fingers. This is due to a fusion of connective tissue in the palm of the hand.
In most cases, it is the ring finger and the little finger that are affected.

Causes of Dupuytren's disease

We do not know where Dupuytren's contracture comes from. In most cases, the complaints gradually arise. It starts with stiff connective tissue strand in the palm of the hand. The strands run from the palm to the fingers. Over time (months or years), hard subcutaneous connective tissue strands may develop. The fingers start to warp and are difficult to stretch.

Symptoms with Dupuytren's contracture

  • Stiff fingers
  • Stiff connective tissue strands
  • Hard lumps on the inside of the palm
  • The fingers can be difficult to stretch
  • After a few years, the fingers contract

Diagnosis and treatment

Multiple treatment methods are possible. If the complaints are at a distant stage, it is possible to have surgery or inject the tissue.
