Can this be used on stage 3 Dupuytrens? Thank you!
Stage 3 if one speaks about the Tubiana grading system implies a cord with severe deformity grater than 90 degrees. If there is a palpable cord the answer is yes however often fingersr with these high grade deformities have more than one joint involved and are much more severe than the case pictured here.
