Surgery for Dupuytren's contractures of the fingers

  • Protocol
  • Intervention



This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the effects (benefits and harms) of different surgical procedures for the treatment of Dupuytren's contracture of the index, middle, ring and little fingers (the thumb will be excluded, as cords form on the radial aspect of the thumb, and thus are not readily accessible in terms of angular deformity of the thumb's joints. Furthermore, thumb disease is also rare, and does not usually cause disability, hence it is uncommonly treated).
