Correlation of Function with Deformity in Dupuytren Disease: The Condition-Specific Southampton Scoring Scheme Outperforms the Generic QuickDASH
We correlated angular deformity with two different functional schemes (Southampton Dupuytren’s Scoring Scheme (SDSS) and QuickDASH) in 298 cords in 237 patients immediately prior to injection with collagenase Clostridium histolyticum. We found that QuickDASH did not correlate with deformity whereas the SDSS had modest correlation.
