The open palm technique in the management of dupuytren's contracture

, : The open palm technique in the management of dupuytren's contracture. Annales de Chirurgie Plastique et Esthetique 30(3): 211-215

The open palm technique had been modified to provide a better approach for incision of the fascia. A series of 150 operations is reviewed. All the patients were treated on an out-patient basis. Postoperative pain was moderate, with no hematoma, and no skin necrosis was reported. The average healing time was 32 days, and the average time off work, 42 days.
