What is Dupuytren's Contracture?

Description of the disease

Dupuytren's contracture is a condition characterized by gradual shortening of the fascia of the palm and fingers, leading to their bending and restriction of movement.


  • Flexor contracture of the fingers
  • Palmar capsule of the palm


The main symptom is the gradual shortening of the fingers and difficulty in straightening them.


The causes of Dupuytren's contracture are not fully understood. However, genetics, injuries, and certain occupational factors are believed to contribute to the development of this condition.


The diagnosis of Dupuytren's contracture is based on physical examination and additional methods such as ultrasound or MRI.


Treatment may include conservative methods (physiotherapy, stretching exercises) or surgical intervention, which is performed to destroy the pathologically altered tissue.


There is no specific prevention for Dupuytren's contracture, but regular finger stretching exercises can help prevent the development of the disease.


Dupuytren's contracture is treated by an orthopedic surgeon or a surgeon.
