47 Possible Causes for Contractures of the Metacarpophalangeal Joints

  • Dupuytren Contracture

    There may be need for surgery if the contracture of the metacarpophalangeal joint or if contracture of the proximal interphalangeal joint is extensive.[news-medical.net] Primary joints were stratified according to type (two metacarpophalangeal joints to one proximal interphalangeal joint) and according to the severity of joint contracture[doi.org] The contracture from the proximal interphalangeal joint improved significantly from 61 degrees to 27 degrees, and contracture from the metacarpophalangeal joint improved from[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
