Dupuytrens Dressing Change

Dupuytrens Dressing Change   


Dressing Change for Dupuytrens Surgery


Skin graft donor site on inner aspect of arm. Do not remove inner dressing here unless grossly blood stained. This wound is under some tension so do NOT remove steristrips.


The patient will see the Hnand Therapist in the 1st few days post-operatively for finger exercises and the application of a light weight plastic splint. This is worn at night and the fingers are exercised during the day.

It is important to emphasize to the patients to keep the hand well elevated particularly if they have had a skin graft.
