Abstract

Seventeen African-American patients were operated on for Dupuytren's contracture over a 14-year period. Six-month minimum follow-up was available for 16 patients. The initial deformity, and results of surgical release of Dupuytren's contracture in this population was similar to that described in North Europeans.
