            There is a paucity of literature examining the trajectory of meaningful clinical improvement after distal radius fracture (DRF) fixation. We sought to answer the following questions: (1) When do patients meet the minimum clinically important difference (MCID) in the Quick–Disabilities in Arm, Shoulder, and Hand questionnaire (QuickDASH) score change after DRF fixation? (2) What gains in terms of number of MCIDs achieved (as measured by QuickDASH) do patients make as they recover from DRF fixation? (3) What patient and injury factors are characteristic of patients who meet or do not meet the average recovery trajectory?

            Collagenase Clostridium histolyticum (CCH) has increasingly been used to treat Dupuytren contracture since its Food and Drug Administration approval in 2010. One concern among practitioners is the learning curve of this new technique. This study characterizes success and complication rates for surgeons with no prior experience with CCH treatment.

            Communication between patients and physicians is critical in reaching a diagnosis, improving compliance, and optimizing outcomes and patient satisfaction. The doctor–patient relationship begins when a physician introduces himself or herself to a patient; however, no optimal method has been reported on how best to perform an introduction in hand surgery.
