Abstract

Learning Objectives: After reviewing this article, the participant should be able to: 1. Recognize and treat common hand infections. 2. Define the pathophysiology and appropriately manage high-pressure injection injuries. 3. Define the operative indications for treatment of Dupuytren disease. 4. Understand the role of operative treatment in rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Summary: The hand, by virtue of its position in space, complex anatomical composition, and characteristic biomechanical properties, is subject to a host ofdisease processes and traumatic injuries. This article reviews the presentation, evaluation, treatment, and outcomes of treatment in hand infections, highpressure injection injuries, Dupuytren disease, and arthritis. (Plast. Reconstr. Surg. 126: 288e, 2010.)
