Dupuytren’s Contracture Treatment Perth
Also known as Dupuytren’s contracture, this disease causes the tissue between the skin and tendons in the palm to thicken over time, limiting the movement of one or more fingers. In severe cases, a cord of tissue may form that causes the fingers to bend fully into the palm.
Surgical correction of Dupuytren’s disease involves the release of the cord, and excision of the diseased tissues, helping the fingers to return to their original position and improving the usability of the hand.
Taking care of yourself after surgery
The hands are highly pain-sensitive, and pain may be severe enough to require analgesics. To reduce movements and allow the repairs to hold firmly, you may need to wear a splint. Rehabilitation is also necessary to achieve maximal use of your hands after the procedure.
Success rates depend on the type of deformity, and complete recovery may take months to years.
