|- Brief summary||Dupuytren’s disease (DD) is a benign, progressive, fibroproliferative disorder that results in the development of abnormal scar-like tissue in the palmar fascia of the hand. Extension to the digits causes progressive digital flexion contracture[1, 2].
In 2006, Dupuytren’s disease was diagnosed 7048 times in the Netherlands. In total, 5843 DD operations were performed that year (Prismant Informatie Expertise).
The treatment of DD mainly consists of surgery. Accepted options for managing diseased skin and fascia are (1) limited fasciectomy, (2) segmental fasciectomy (3) fasciotomy (4) dermofasciectomy. Limited fasciectomy and, if necessary, limited dermofasciectomy are the most often-used techniques. With this technique, full recovery of hand function generally takes 2-3 months.
In collaboration with the Miami Hand Center (Roger K. Khouri, MD), we developed a technique in which percutaneous release of fibrotic cords is refined in combination with subdermal fat grafting. Subdermal dissection of the cord is performed by making multiple superficial nicks along the entire cord. The cord then chops, disintegrates and separates from the dermis. This space is filled with fat grafts. This technique should have a shorter convalescence because it is less invasive compared with the conventional techniques.
Aim of our study is to compare in patients with a primary Dupuytren’s contracture the effect of a new percutaneous and lipofilling technique with standard fasciectomy surgery on convalescence, contracture correction and recurrence rate.
We will use the VAS and DASH score and hand function test to measure the recovery of the hand function. This study may provide an insight into a better treatment option for patients with Dupuytren’s contractures and it may lower the costs of treatment by shortening the convalescence.|
