Meaning: Guillaume, Baron Dupuytren (1777-1835) was a famous French surgeon and pathologist best known for his description and development of surgical procedures for alleviating "Dupuytren's contracture" (see quasi-calcification of the palmar aponeurosis). He introduced a new classification of burns and provided the first clear description of the pathology of congenital dislocation of the hip (1826). He devised many other surgical procedures as well.
