Vikings, Steam beer, and the Ossis

Bob, did you visit Dr. Flatt's site on DD/DC.
He lists references to Viking data by ethnic origen.
That might help point you in a relevant direction.
The site can be accessed via Walt Stagners Duputrens Links.
The link is Dupuytrens from a historical perspective.
That take one to Dr. Flatt's site at Baylor Medical.
Dr. Flatt has DD himself. The material is worth a read IMO.
Good luck.

DC is NOT EXCLUSIVELY for Viking descendants.
It's just that we 'Vikings' have a much larger probablity to get it.

Viking Myth

The mythology, as I've read about it, is that Vikings sometimes married mermaids. When the babies came out with webbed fingers, the midwives would cut away the webbing. The scar tissue and remnants of the webbing is what we now see as DC. You'd think pillaging and plundering would have been enough?!

Duyputen and needle procedure

Hi
I suffered from Duyputren in the little finger of the left hand and by Sept of this year it had reached stage 4 - finger almost at right angles. I had been on a waiting list for over a year to have surgery in Belfast but got tired of waiting and contacted Dr Badois in Paris who performs Needle Aponeurotomy rather than surgery.
I obtained an appointment within 4 weeks and travelled to Paris three weeks ago and had the N.A. It took about 30 mins with little discomfort and within three days I was able to use my left hand with little trouble and last week I was able to play golf. I would recommend the needle procedure and I can give more details to anyone who is interested.

DC in European populations


Actually, as far as I can find out, there is no solid evidence that people of Viking or Celtic or even Northern European ancestry are any more prone to DC than Europeans in general. There is only one study I could find of DC occurence in southwest Europe (Spain), and it showed about the same rate as in Northern Europe. Another study in Bosnia showed the same. I guess there is a consensus that people of European ancestry get it more other people.

Vikings

There's an interesting "London Scientists" post from 5-21-04 that mentions the Viking/Celtic connection with Dupuytrens.
