Re: Dupyutren's or Hand Injury Complication?

Thanks for the help. I think I am going to go ahead and make an appointment to find out what is going. One more question, do you know if all scarring on a tendon in the palm would be considered Dupuytren's or is it a specific type of scarring? I ask because I also read that chronic tendinitis can cause repeated inflammation leading to scar tissue. I was just wondering if that would be considered Dupuytren's or not.

Re: Dupyutren's or Hand Injury Complication?

Scarring of a tendon is not considered Dupuytren's. Dupuytren's is a specific disease where scar-like tissue is growing in the hand, not related to a tendon but as inflexible as a tendon. This new tissue can be in the form of nodules or, typically in a progessed stage, as string or cord https://www.dupuytren-online.info/dupuyt...ontracture.html . The cord is eventually blocking the stretching of teh affected finger.

Thanks for the info. So it seems like it is safe to say that the majority of men with Dupyutren's will probably never get Peyronie's? I was worrying that one diagnosis was meaning you were very likely to get the other at some point but it seems like that isn't the case and there may be a slight increase in risk or maybe none at all

Re: Dupyutren's or Hand Injury Complication?

I would agree to that. Having Dupuytren's does not mean that you need to expect to also get Ledderhose or Peyronie's, It might be but - in my view - Dupuytren's does not make it more likely to develop PD.

Dear Jaykson2

reading the thread about "your special case" is an interesting and challenging task

Your situation of making an important decision and your need for appropriate counselling may be improved by receiving a SPECIAL MEDICAL VIDEO CONSULTATION which I have started to offer for all those patients being locked out from the different medical options due to the CORONA pandemia.

For example quite a few of my patients got stuck in just ONE RT SERIES missing the time gap for an appropriate application of the scheduled SECOND RT SERIES about 12 week after the 1st RT series. With VIDEO CONSULTATION we could at least visually inspect and examine the irradiated hands and discover possible changes

So I would like to offer you a VIDEO CONSULTATION which would require to sign an agreement form and send your personal disease data together with appropriate photographs to my E-mail account :
