Evaluate the safety and efficacy of collagenase in improving flexion deformity, range of motion, and grip strength in patients with residual Dupuytren's disease.
PROTOCOL OUTLINE: This is a randomized, investigator-blinded, placebo-controlled study.
Patients receive a single dose of either collagenase or placebo into the target finger on day 0. Patients who do not respond at the 1 month follow up visit may receive an injection of open label collagenase, if IgE antibody levels are no greater than 15 ng/mL.
Following treatment, patients use a nighttime extension splint for 4 months and perform finger flexion/extension exercises. Patients are followed at 1, 7, and 14 days, and at 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months, for each joint treated.

Dupuytren's contracture, a benign condition characterized by fibrosis of the palmar and digital fascia, may be a debilitating condition that limits daily function. Several techniques exist for managin...
Local disruption of the cord that causes contracture of the finger in Dupuytren disease can be achieved either through mechanical division by percutaneous needle fasciotomy (PNF) or through enzymatic ...
Dupuytren's pathologic tissue usually involves the palmar skin and rarely infiltrates into the dorsal skin. In this study, we hypothesized that transplantation of a vascularized cutaneous flap harvest...
A fibromatosis of the palmar fascia characterized by thickening and contracture of the fibrous bands on the palmar surfaces of the hand and fingers. It arises most commonly in men between the ages of 30 and 50.
Surgical incision on the FASCIA. It is used to decompress compartment pressure (e.g. in COMPARTMENT SYNDROMES; circumferential burns and extremity injuries) or to release contractures (e.g. in DUPUYTREN'S CONTRACTURE).
A secreted endopeptidase homologous with INTERSTITIAL COLLAGENASE, but which possesses an additional fibronectin-like domain.
A species of gram-positive, strongly proteolytic bacteria in the family Clostridiaceae. It contains several forms of COLLAGENASE whose action can lead to GAS GANGRENE in humans and HORSES.
