Abstract
Until a cure exists, Dupuytren's disease and related disorders such as Ledderhose's disease will pose lifelong threats of functional impairment for affected individuals. A better understanding of the onset of disease, early detection and functional preservation are of the utmost importance to minimize the impact of these conditions. This book is based on presentations and discussions at the 2010 International Symposium on Dupuytren's disease held in Miami, Florida, but it also includes new data and additional chapters. It is hoped that it will raise awareness of this underestimated condition and promote cooperative efforts to work towards a cure. Up to date information is provided on the epidemiology, biology, and pathology of the disease. The principles and specifics of treatment are explored in detail. The indications for and techniques of radiotherapy, minimally invasive treatments and open surgery are fully explained. In addition, the role of physical therapy is considered as well as the care of relapse and complications. Treatment of Ledderhose's disease and Peyronie's disease is also discussed. This book provides invaluable information for hand surgeons, podiatrists, orthopedists, plastic surgeons, radiation therapy specialists and general practitioners. It will help to foster an interdisciplinary approach to the understanding and management of this debilitating disorder and related conditions.
