Whats New


    Injection with XIAFLEX® is a TGA-approved nonsurgical treatment option for adults with Dupuytren’s contracture with a palpable cord.

    XIAFLEX® contains a mixture of enzymes that are injected directly into a Dupuytren’s cord. These enzymes help break down the cord
    and allow the finger to straighten.

    Injection instead of surgery is therefore available as a treatment option for the correction of Dupuytren. Certain formation of Dupuytren
    responds well with injection therapy other may work better with surgery. Your treating surgeon will be able to get you this advice.

    This Injection treatment essentially consists of 3 steps:

    1. Injection of XIAFLEX®---

    Xiaflex is injected into the cord. Following the injection, the hand is wrapped in a soft bulky dressing to reduce swelling.
    The patient is advised to keep the hand elevated to reduce swelling. Swelling and bruising from the collagen breakdown is to be expected.
    Free use of the hand is allowed, but should avoid strong grip and lifting. Washing and showering of the hand is allowed
    the night of the injection procedure. The injection consultation and procedure takes approximately 20 minutes.

    2. Manipulation of finger into Extension---

    The patient returns to the consulting rooms approximately 2 days after the injection. Local anaesthesia may be used with the finger extension
    procedure and disruption of the Dupuytren cord.

    3. Post procedure follow up treatment---

    Patients will be referred to see a Hand Therapist for a period of splinting, instruction of daily exercises and if necessary wound care.
