Reconstructive surgery


Dupuytren's contracture
What kind of surgery is that? 
· This is a surgical procedure performed on a hand, it is more frequent in men and it is genetically conditioned (Celtic gene).
· What creates the problem is a thickening or nodule in the palm which may extend into the fingers causing finger bending. Such problem can be solved only by means of surgery. The surgery includes making certain incisions on the palm, separating and removing the distorted membrane from the nerves and blood vessels.
· The problem may appear on both hands.
What is preparation for the surgery? 
Before the surgery, it is necessary to determine your state of health.

Before scheduling your surgery, you are supposed to do the following analyses and bring your results with you:

1. Blood type
We need a document where your blood type is stated. The surname in the document MUST be the same as the surname in your ID.
2. Laboratory analyzes (not older than two weeks): Complete blood count - erythrocytes, leukocytes, platelets, hemoglobin, hematocrit, iron, sedimentation
3. Biochemical parameters - urea, creatinine, glucose, bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, transaminases (AST and ALT), electrolytes (potassium, sodium chlorides)
4. Coagulation parameters - APTT, prothrombin time and INR
5. Urine sediment
The most common reason for canceling the planned surgery is a bad result of some of these analyses.
For this reason, we insist that you do these laboratory analyses and send them to us before coming to the surgery.
The price of the operation includes preoperative preparation: digital lung X-ray, examination by a radiologist, examination by a cardiologist, EKG and examination by an anesthesiologist, totaling 12700din.These tests are done in our hospital.
All possible, necessary additional analyses, e.g. breast ultrasound or thyroid hormone tests, will be charged separately and are not included in the price.
What type of anesthesia is used for the surgery? 
· Axillary block anesthesia or short-term intravenous anesthesia.
What is post-operative procedure? 
· The wound heals in 2-3 weeks. Moving fingers is advised, but as the tension is this way transferred to the wound, the healing may take longer.
After what time can I go home? 
· An hour or two after the intervention you can go home.
· Consultative examination by our plastic surgeon is free of charge.
