From: Imaging for Dupuytren disease: a systematic review of the literature

Author (year) Study type Level of evidence Imaging modality N (fingers) Clinical details Outcome parameters Results Additional value MRI Additional value US
Elsahy (1976) [29] Prospective case-series 4 Pre-operative US unknown DD patients undergoing fasciectomy. Course of NV-bundles Course of NV-bundle with US corresponded to surgical findings Cannot be determined
Uehara (2012) [30] Case-control study 4 Pre-operative US - DD patients: 14 (25)
- Healthy volunteers:
22
DD patients, of which 8 underwent fasciectomy, and healthy volunteers. Sensitivity /specificity of detecting displaced NV-bundle - Sensitivity/specificity: 80%/76% when difference in depth between ulnar and radial bundle> 3 mm
- US-findings corresponded to surgical findings in operated cases.
Cannot be determined
Sakellariou (2015) [31] Prospective cohort study 3 Pre-operative US 48 (90) DD patients undergoing PNF - Complications
- Immediate correction of contracture
- Recurrence at 26 months
- Complications: no tendon rupture or damage to NV-bundle
- Correction: MCP 80% PIP 66%
- Recurrence (requiring surgery): 18.2%
Cannot be determined
Sampson(2011) [32] Case-report 5 Peri-operativeUS 1 64-year-old woman undergoing PNF and osteopathic manipulative treatment - Complications’
- Correction of contracture
No complications.
Full extension after 5th round of treatment.
Cannot be determined
Leclère (2013) [33] Prospective cohort study 3 Peri-operative US 33 (43) DD patients undergoing CCH injections - complications
- Correction of contracture: immediate and at 9.9 months
- Subjective patient satisfaction
- DASH-questionaire
- No tendon rupture or damage to NV-bundle
- Immediate correction: MCP 90%, PIP 84%
Correction at 9.9 months: MCP 77%, PIP 59%
- Satisfaction: 81%
- DASH-score: significant decrease during follow-up (P < 0.001)
