The anatomy of the hand is described so the physical mechanism of the finger contractures can be understood. Other topics are statistics, pathology, cause, progression, and standard medical treatment of Dupuytren contracture(DC). A broad view of this surprisingly common condition is presented that destroys the quality of life in so many ways.
Most of what is known about Dupuytren’s contracture is a generalization, since the problem is extremely variable in its presentation. This great variability of Dupuytren’s contracture signs and symptoms has made it so difficult to study and to understand, makes it almost impossible to treat like other medical conditions.

I had carpal tunnel surgery on both my wrists last year. Within 6 mo. I started to have trigger finger in my ring & pinkie fingers. I can still bend them back with moderate discomfort. Within a short time my right thumb started to trigger at knuckle with pain. I did have steroid injection in pinkie & ring finger which only gave me a few months of relief..the same hand surgeon has me scheduled for Trigger Surgery to thumb a month from now…I’m very nervous about the outcome…all of this happened after my carpel tunnel surgery. I still have frequent nerve sparking in wrists
So sorry to hear of your complications after hand surgery.
Normally I do not respond to emails that are not specifically about Dupuytren’s contracture. However, I will comment on yours because two aspects of your commentary are important in regard to Dupuytren’s contracture and unexpected surgical outcomes.
Firstly, the hand is an extremely complex part of the body. Any hand surgery is a big deal; it is not an easy or simple area of the body, and a lot can go wrong. In addition, there are many hand surgeries that are done that go well, except that after them a complication arises in which Dupuytren’s contracture occurs a short time later. You see, after many different kinds of hand trauma Dupuytren’s contracture can develop. For example, after hitting the thumb with a hammer or falling down and landing on the hand, Dupuytren’s contracture can start shortly afterward. The same with having hand surgery. It is as though the surgery is a trauma that starts up DC.
Secondly, you have a questionable outcome after your carpel tunnel surgery. Second opinions are very important. Sometimes having the same doctor who did a problematic surgery evaluate what was done and how it responded, is not a good idea. It is a far better idea to have a different doctor, with a fresh and unbiased perspective, look at the problem. My advice is that you get a second opinion of your trigger finger from a hand surgeon who is located far away from the first hand surgeon.
All of the above applies to Dupuytren’s contracture, as well.
Good luck to you. TRH
