is needle aponevrotomy an option after surgery?

I had dupuytrens surgery September 2002.
Currently my middle finger is bent and in worse condition than it was before surgery. Scar tissue in the form of a keloid has appeared. Has anyone has successful removal of scar tissue after such surgery?

Scar tissue

I had 2 c-sections and then an emergency hystorectomy. Since then, I have had three other surgurys removing the scar tissue from them procedures. Is there any way of ridding this completely???

Mederma

Hi, there's a product call Mederma that may help. According to the webpage www.mederma.com,

"It's a fact of life. Everyone has scars. The good news is that no matter how you got them or how long you've had them, MEDERMA® can help make your scars appear softer, smoother and less noticeable."

The product works by inhibiting the growth of fibroblast cells. An earlier document on their website indicated that it may be usefull for dupuytrens. That document has since been removed. I'm just experiencing contracture so am trying the product on the nodes to see if it helps. I used it on my right had after I was first diagnosed and never experienced contracture. After noticing, after 4 years of right hand nodes, that my left had a node I didn't do anything but am now experiencing contracture on my little finger. Whether or not the mederma helped the right hand, I don't really know.

Hi Chuck,
Sorry, not possible to cut and paste from a PDF but, if you cut and paste the web details in your address bar it works. It is on page 9, not 4 sorry.

Anyone else know of any other groups/companies working on CTGF inhibitors?

Hi Majorie, turned out to be a problem with my PC at work. Was able to view the document at home.

Thanks!
