“Evaluation of Xiaflex: Trial of Effectivenss iN Dupuytren's”
This is a prospective, multi-centre, pragmatic randomized controlled trial to compare both the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of collagenase injections (CI) versus limited palmar fasciectomy (LPF) to determine if collagenase is a superior treatment in terms of improved quality of life and reducing recurrence of the disease without serious complications. Since collagenase injections are costly it is also important to know if this novel intervention is cost-effective from the patient, Ministry of Health and societal perspectives.
