Dupuytren’s Contracture¬†

Dupuytren’s contracture and trigger finger both problems affect the finger, and there is a significant connotation between trigger finger and Dupuytren’s contracture. Although they are highly related, there is little difference between both conditions. Tendons are present on the palmer side of each finger, which help in the bending of the finger towards the palm. These tendons are surrounded by sheath lined with synovium. Palmer fascia is a fibrous layer of tissues and a protective barrier between the skin and tendon that helps in bending of the finger towards the palm. In Dupuytren’s contracture, the palmer fascia thickens and affects the bending of the finger towards the palm. It can affect more than one finger. The patients suffering from Dupuytren’s contracture are at higher risk of developing trigger finger and vice versa.
