Facts about injection, finger extension, and more

To determine the proper site for injection,

locate the area where the contracting cord is maximally separated from the underlying flexor tendons, and where the skin is not intimately adhered to the cord.1

If injecting into a cord affecting the PIP joint of the fifth finger, care should be taken to inject as close to the palmar digital crease as possible (as far proximal to the digital PIP joint crease), and the needle insertion should not be more than 2 to 3 mm in depth. Tendon ruptures occurred after XIAFLEX® injections near the digital PIP joint crease.

For complete details on the appropriate injection procedure for XIAFLEX® watch the Training Video above.

Local anesthetic may be used for the finger extension procedure to help with patient comfort.1

However, it is not recommended prior to the injection procedure, as it may interfere with proper placement of the needle.1

To learn more about the appropriate administration of XIAFLEX®, visit the Procedure Overview page.

~24–72 hours after the injection of XIAFLEX®

the finger extension procedure may be performed if a contracture persists.1

Read more about performing the finger extension procedure on the Procedure Overview page.

Yes. In fact, XIAFLEX® demonstrated efficacy in patients with PIP contractures up to 80 degrees.2,3

Learn more about how XIAFLEX® helped correct contractures and increased range of motion on the PIP Joint Clinical Data page.

Important Safety Information
for XIAFLEX®

  • XIAFLEX® is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to XIAFLEX® or to collagenase used in any other therapeutic application or application method
  • In the controlled and uncontrolled portions of clinical trials in Dupuytren's contracture, flexor tendon ruptures occurred after XIAFLEX® injection. Injection of XIAFLEX® into collagen-containing structures such as tendons or ligaments of the hand may result in damage to those structures and possible permanent injury such as tendon rupture or ligament damage. Therefore, XIAFLEX® should be injected only into the collagen cord with a MP or PIP joint contracture, and care should be taken to avoid injecting into tendons, nerves, blood vessels, or other collagen-containing structures of the hand. When injecting a cord affecting a PIP joint of the fifth finger, the needle insertion should not be more than 2 to 3 mm in depth and avoid injecting more than 4 mm distal to the palmar digital crease
  • Other XIAFLEX®-associated serious local adverse reactions in the controlled and uncontrolled portions of the studies included pulley rupture, ligament injury, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), sensory abnormality of the hand, and skin laceration (tear). In a historically controlled post-marketing trial, the incidence of skin laceration (22%) was higher for subjects treated with two concurrent injections of XIAFLEX® compared with subjects treated with up to three single injections in the placebo-controlled premarketing trials (9%). Cases of skin laceration requiring skin graft after finger extension procedures have been reported post-marketing. Signs or symptoms that may reflect serious injury to the injected finger/hand should be promptly evaluated because surgical intervention may be required
  • In the controlled portions of the clinical trials in Dupuytren's contracture, a greater proportion of XIAFLEX®-treated patients (15%) compared to placebo-treated patients (1%) had mild allergic reactions (pruritus) after up to 3 injections. The incidence of XIAFLEX®-associated pruritus increased after more XIAFLEX® injections in patients with Dupuytren's contracture
  • Because XIAFLEX® contains foreign proteins, severe allergic reactions to XIAFLEX® can occur. Anaphylaxis was reported in a post-marketing clinical study in one patient who had previous exposure to XIAFLEX® for the treatment of Dupuytren's contracture. Healthcare providers should be prepared to address severe allergic reactions following XIAFLEX® injections
  • In the XIAFLEX® trials in Dupuytren's contracture, 70% and 38% of XIAFLEX®-treated patients developed an ecchymosis/contusion or an injection site hemorrhage, respectively. Patients with abnormal coagulation (except for patients taking low-dose aspirin, eg, up to 150 mg per day) were excluded from participating in these studies. Therefore, the efficacy and safety of XIAFLEX® in patients receiving anticoagulant medications (other than low-dose aspirin, eg, up to 150 mg per day) within 7 days prior to XIAFLEX® administration is not known. In addition, it is recommended to avoid use of XIAFLEX® in patients with coagulation disorders, including patients receiving concomitant anticoagulants (except for low-dose aspirin)
  • In the XIAFLEX® clinical trials for Dupuytren's contracture, the most common adverse reactions reported in ≥25% of patients treated with XIAFLEX® and at an incidence greater than placebo were edema peripheral (eg, swelling of the injected hand), contusion, injection site hemorrhage, injection site reaction, and pain in the injected extremity

Indication

XIAFLEX® is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with Dupuytren's contracture with a palpable cord.
