Dupuytrens Surgery and Xiaflex Injection

Dupuytren’s contracture is a disorder of connective tissue that limits movement in the fingers. An involuntary bending of the finger(s) develops as Dupuytren’s gets worse.

Dupuytren’s surgery and the Xiaflex injection offer two effective approaches for treating Dupuytren’s contracture, both performed on an outpatient basis. The surgical procedure involves removing the diseased connective tissue. Doing so loosens the tension in the fingers and allows them to straighten out normally. Xiaflex is an enzyme-based substance that’s injected into the affected connective tissue. The Xiaflex gradually acts to gradually break up the excess connective tissue, eventually allowing the fingers to straighten out and start to move normally.
