DP corrections in Europe

I'm livng in Europe (Finland) and having my 2nd surgery for L-hand next week. (The R-hand was fixed in June). These, about 40 degrees corrections for the 5. finger + 10 for 4. are made using "the traditional surgery". NA procedure is used only in 4 countries in Europe. I have been told that also in those countries the most common procedure is still surgery.

There are many different procedures also among the surgeries. One of these is "Segmental Aponeuroctomy". A wide study -with more than 500 patients- can be seen on: http://www.ccmbel.org/These.html (at the University of Bruxelles on May, 15 1997 by J.P.Moermans, M.D. Choose English). So, it is not only a question of UK or USA which does not accept NA. Also my hand surgeon has seen in Paris in a conference an Introduction of NA.

Chinese treatment for dupuytrens

Teemu,
Thank you for the information. I have also thought that Segmental Aponeurectomy is what could end up being the preferred procedure. It is not very invasive and seems to accomplish the same as surgery. EXCEPT, we end up at that same question. What happens to the diseased tissue? Does it dissolve? Does it stay to produce or facilitate more diseased tissue? The recurrence of Moermans doesn't seem any higher than traditional surgery. I did take Moermans information/pictures to my surgeon and he was very interested, but asked that same question about the diseased tissue. Apparently, it isn't an easy question.

Dr Moermans

Gary, it has been some time since I had a good look at that thesis ( which is mostly a a bit too medical for me ), but the illustrations indicate that ( at least in that particular case ) the remnants of the cord disappear (!).

Moxibustion

Hello,
A doctor of Chinese medicine (now an American citizen) has performed moxibustion on my hands. Moxa (tightly packed herbs) are burnt in the ends of acupuncture needles.

I agreed to this because he treated my shoulder and knees with great success.

I completed nine sessions over three weeks with little long-term change. Please, do not mistake me. The process provides relief. Two needles on each side of a nodule released more tention than I knew was there. It was wonderful! That said... I would view it as temporary. Like a massage.

Good Luck to you all!
