In brief: Dupuytrens

Dupuytens is a progressive disorder that at this point does not have a cure but has very successful treatments.
Traditionally treatment observed until contracture was severe and surgery was offered. Some new alternatives include needle aponeurotomy, limited fasciaotomy and xiaflex (collagenase clostridium histolyticum) or collagenase a site that offers new treatment updates is http://tinyurl.Com/b5mn7vg.
