Previous methods to assess severity of DD were based primarily on the degree of contracture of an affected digit measured using a goniometer. Nonetheless, this method of assessment alone may be incomplete, and other factors should be considered. White (n = 92) patients diagnosed with DD from northwest of England were assessed for DD. Objective criteria for evaluating severity incorporated quantified variables. The revised severity stage was correlated to a known staging system of DD (Tubiana’s staging system) which measures total flexion deformity for a single affected digit....
