Interesting book

Well doing some research this afternoon I came across this new book that is coming out, shame about the price as I imagine it would be a really great source of understanding for anyone with Ledderhose. Of course it is really aimed at doctors but if anyone wants to buy a copy for me then feel free :-P 

Dupuytren's Disease and Related Hyperproliferative Disorders: Principles, Research, and Clinical Perspectives

The book says that "Until a cure exists, Dupuytren’s disease and related disorders such as Ledderhose’s disease will pose lifelong threats of functional impairment for affected individuals."

Anyone who has any of the above will know that is true and this book explores the conditions by looking at the discussions from the 2010 International Symposium on Dupuytren's disease. It includes information on the biology and the pathology of the disease and discussions of techniques including radiotherapy and surgery.
