Vitamin E treatment of Dupuytren’s Contracture
By: Charles Eaton

Treating Dupuytren’s with vitamin E. Does it work? No, according to this 50 year old study, documenting results with before and after plaster casts of the bent fingers. The results: no improvement in the degree of contracture. This is a pretty straightforward clearly documented study, which answers the question “Does three months of vitamin E therapy help straighten fingers bent by Dupuytren’s?” Apparently not. It doesn’t answer the much more difficult question “Does vitamin E therapy prevent progression of Dupuytren’s contracture?”. I’d still like to know: http://www.DupuytrenFoundation.org/DupPDFs/1952_Richards_1269.pdf
