Caption: Excised Dupuytren's contracture tissue. Dupuytren's contracture causes one or more fingers to become fixed in a bent position. It is caused by tissue in the palm of the hand thickening and shortening, preventing the tendons attached to the fingers from moving freely. Surgery attempts to free the tendons by removing this tissue (seen here), but does not always work.
