Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Restoration of PIP and DIP joint motion. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Hand Grip strength (kg) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Enrollment: 3
Study Start Date: January 2005
Study Completion Date: January 2008
Primary Completion Date: January 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Collagenase Injection
Injection of collagenase into adhesion restricting tendon gliding
Drug: Collagenase
Collagenase injection into adhesion restricting tendon gliding
Other Name: Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum
Drug: Collagenase injection
injection of collagenase into adhesion restricting tendon gliding
Other Name: Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum

Detailed Description:

In an open label study, collagenase injection therapy was investigated in 3 subjects for it's ability to lyse flexor tendon adhesions in zone II of the hand.

Results indicate that two of three subjects had improved range of finger motion at the PIP and DIP joints. This may obviate the need for patients to have tenolysis hand surgery to correct the finger flexion contracture of the PIP and DIP joints. Detailed controlled studies remain to be done.
