Soft Tissues

The most common soft tissue diseases of the hand include ganglia, Dupuytren’s disease, tumors, infections, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Humans are made up of different types of tissue. In the hand in particular, a wide variety of tissue types such as nerves, tendons, bones, muscles, fatty and connective tissue lie together in a very confined space. The soft tissue colloquially describes the various connective, fatty and muscular tissues – including small blood vessels and nerves.

Injuries to the soft tissue of the hand are usually caused by crush injuries or burns. The most common pathological changes, on the other hand, include tumors (ganglions), i.e. mostly benign, very rarely malignant tissue neoplasms including cysts.

In general, swelling, bruising and loss of strength occur symptomatically with injuries and diseases of the soft tissue in the hand. Clarification by a specialist is always obligatory.

Service Range

Dupuytren’s disease
Dupuytren's disease is a connective tissue disease of the palm that limits the movement of the finger joints.
Blood circulation problems
Stitches, cuts, stretches or bruises can injure the blood vessels of the hand and cut off blood flow.
Rheumatoid arthritis
Typical symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis - the most common form of autoimmune disease - are pain and morning stiffness of the finger joints.
Infections of the hand often arise from small wounds and inevitably require treatment - in rare cases, surgery becomes necessary.
Soft tissue injuries and scar contracture
If soft tissue of the hand is damaged by crush injuries or burns, surgery is often necessary.
Hand tumors and skin lesions
Tumors can also grow uncontrollably in the hand, making them dangerous to the body. If this is the case, the tumor must be surgically removed.
Ganglia (ganglions)
A ganglion, colloquially known as a ganglion overbone, is the most common benign soft tissue tumor of the hand and is noticeable as a swelling under the skin.
