Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of clostridial collagenase injections for treatment of Dupuytren's contracture of the thumb and first web space. The investigators hypothesis is that clostridial collagenase will have safety not significantly different to that demonstrated in Phase III clinical trials, and will be effective in significantly reducing the degree of thumb contracture.
