Enzyme (Xiaflex®) Injection

If you have symptoms of Dupuytren’s disease, Dr. Durand offers effective treatments to release your condition.

PROCEDURE

Enzyme (Xiaflex®) injection is a very good treatment for EARLY stage of Dupuytren’s disease and applied to people who have very small nodules in the palm of the hand. Injections cannot be performed for advanced, or severe stages of Dupuytren’s disease.

Often, the injection needs to be repeated two or three times in order to complete the therapeutic program.

Although that this is an excellent form of treatment for early stage disease most government sponsored medical programs (like RAMQ in Quebec, Canada) do not cover the cost of this type of treatment.

HOW IS IT DONE

Xiaflex® is an injectable solution of enzymes (purified collagenase clostridium histoliticum) that is injected directly into the Dupuytren’s cord. The enzymes break down the cord which allows the finger to straighten again.

Treatment with Xiaflex® is a 3-day process that includes the injection of the solution, finger extension, and fabrication of a night-time splint.

Approximately 24 hours after the injection, your physician will carefully extend the injected finger to help release the cord. As many as three injections may be given into the cord of an affected finger or joint. No more than one finger and one joint may be injected per treatment. Patients must wait a minimum of 30 days to have Xiaflex® treatment for another finger.
