  • Genetic Analysis of Disorders of Fibrosis Rochester, Minn.

    The specific aim of this protocol is to identify microRNAs that are differentially expressed between diseased fibrotic tissue (dupuytrens disease and plantar fibromatosis) and normal fibrotic tissue.

  • The Effects of Prophylactic Limited Palmar Fasciectomy on Surgical Outcomes and Scarring for Dupuytren's Contracture Patients With Pretendinous Cord - Prospective Randomized Clinical Study (Pilot) Rochester, Minn.

    Research is instrumental for improving medical care and the patient experience. Finding new surgical techniques can create better outcomes and minimize recovery time and complications for patients. Some patients undergoing trigger finger surgery with a pre-existing Dupuytren's cord may develop a thickened surgical scar after surgery, which can cause discomfort, difficulty with moving or using, and other complications in the affected finger(s) or hand. The investigator is investigating a surgical technique to minimize these potential complications and scarring after surgery. Subjects are being asked to take part in this research study because they have been diagnosed with trigger finger and pretendinous Dupuytren's cord and have decided to undergo surgery rather than try medical treatment.
