Abstract

Dupuytren's disease and its treatment have always been a fascinating subject. The operation technique, Guillaume Dupuytren performed the 12th of June 1831, does not appear obsolete, even today more than 150 years later (1). Almost the same technique as described in the original text was used. Guillaume Dupuytren was, in his time, a surgeon of true genius.
