Dupuytren contracture questions (and answers) that help us all
This survey is a very important project of DCI and we think it should be important to you, too. The purpose of these questions is to search for possible contributing factors or related conditions that might prove useful in understanding Dupuytren contracture. Your responses will be useful in developing a profile of conditions that might be related to this problem in some way that has yet to be determined.
Our intention is to collect information from as many people as possible, compare their answers, and develop clinical profiles to explore for indicators in the disease process. In so doing we hope to find a common trend or similarity that might help us to understand Dupuytrens contracture better. Filling out this survey could be a good way to help others and to help yourself.
Please take a few moments to answer the questions listed below. We really appreciate your help by providing us with this information.
Please choose the correct answer that applies in your particular situation. For some questions, you will be able to provide only one answer, and for other questions, you will be able to provide multiple answers. For all the other questions, please answer by clicking on either “Yes” or “No”.
“You are being asked for your email address so that DCI can communicate with you if additional information is needed concerning a particular answer you have given. This will only be done if this information is important in a developing statistical pattern of answers.”
