XIAFLEX

What is XIAFLEX?

XIAFLEX is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with Dupuytren’s contracture when a “cord” can be felt.

In people with Dupuytren’s contracture, there is thickening of the skin and tissue in the palm of your hand that is not normal. Over time, this thickened tissue can form a cord in your palm. This causes one or more of your fingers to bend towards the palm, so you can not straighten them.

XIAFLEX should be injected into a cord by a healthcare provider who is skilled in injection procedures of the hand and treating people with Dupuytren’s contracture. The proteins in XIAFLEX help to “break” the cord of tissue that is causing the finger to be bent.

Is XIAFLEX right for you?

There is no cure for Dupuytren’s contracture. Your doctor will help you determine if XIAFLEX is the best treatment for you.

XIAFLEX is a prescription medicine that is injected directly into a Dupuytren’s cord. Administration does not require incisions. The procedure may be done in your doctor’s office and does not require physical therapy visits after treatment.
