Abstract
Background: To date, there have been few reports on the nationwide population-based epidemiology of Dupuytren's disease (DD). We investigated the prevalence and incidence of DD in Korea using the large dataset provided by the Korean Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service. This study is the second nationwide epidemiological study of DD after the study in Taiwan.Methods: Records of patients diagnosed with DD between 2007 and 2014 were extracted from the large dataset by diagnostic code searching (International Classification of Disease 10th revision code M72.0) and were included in the study. We calculated the prevalence and incidence of DD based on the total population of Korea provided by the Korean Statistical Information Service. Diseases associated with DD and the trends in surgery for DD were also analyzed.Results: A total 16,630 patients were diagnosed with DD during the study period. The mean annual prevalence was 32.2 per 100,000 population (41.8 per 100,000 for men; 22.5 per 100,000 for women). The mean annual incidence was 1.09 per 100,000 population (1.80 per 100,000 for men; 0.38 per 100,000 for women). The common diseases associated with DD were hypertension (30.5%), diabetes mellitus (26.7%), hyperlipidemia (20.4%), ischemic heart disease (7.9%), and cerebrovascular disease (4.6%). The mean annual proportion of the patients who had surgery for DD was 5.24% of all DD patients.Conclusion: The prevalence and incidence of DD in Korea were 100-1,000 times lower than those in western countries; however, it was slightly larger than that in Taiwan.
