t of the Caucasian population(1) .  Most cases of Dupuytren's contracture occur in patients older than 50 years(2).

The most frequently affected parts of the hand associated with Dupuytren's contracture are the joints called the Metacarpal Phalangeal Joint, or MP joint, which is the joint closest to the palm of the hand and the Proximal Intra-Phalangeal Joint, or the PIP joint, which is the middle joint in the finger. The little finger and ring finger are most frequently involved. It is estimated by SDI Health, LLC that up to 40% of annual Dupuytren's surgeries are performed to treat two or more cords concurrently.  XIAFLEX is the only drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treatment of Dupuytren's contracture, which has historically been treated primarily by an open surgical procedure.
