In the past years marked progress has been made in the surgical treatment of congenital anomalies of the hand. More and more, the reluctance to operate on these deformities has been abandoned. One reason for this - at least in the German-speaking countries - was the thalidomide catastrophe (), which involved the birth of many.

Toe-to-hand transfer is a well-established reconstructive option for certain congenital hand anomalies. It is the only technique which can add growth potential to the immature skeleton. Congenital anomalies are hand or finger deformities that are present at birth. Any type of deformity in a newborn can become a challenge for the child as he or she grows.

Hand deformities can be particularly disabling as the child learns to interact with the environment through the use of. The book is not intended to be an encyclopedic compendium of congenital hand anomalies with details of varieties of surgical techniques.

Instead, it is personal and is supplemented by the author's dissections and documentations, as, for instance, in the anomalous anatomy seen in the radial clubhand, acrosyndactyly, complex syndactyly in Apert's. Babies born with hands that are different than the normal hand have a congenital hand difference.

Millions of steps are required for a normal hand to be formed; a failure in any step will result in a congenital disorder. Some of these congenital differences are believed to be caused by a genetic cause and others occur because of unknown causes, research efforts to further understand these.

Langer et al 9 reported on 13 patients with a thumb in the plane of the hand deformity ().These anomalies were all associated with other primary congenital anomalies, most commonly symbrachydactyly or ulnar deficiency. The authors reported that an abduction-rotational osteotomy of the thumb metacarpal with webspace deepening was effective, but multiple procedures are often required.

Abstract The main values of our knowledge of the genetics of birth defects are proper diagnosis and counseling. A classification of hand malformations on anatomic and genetic grounds was proposed by Temtamy (), Temtamy and McKusick (, ): The ten main categories are (1) Absence, (2) Brachydactyly, (3) Syndactyly, (4) Polydactyly, (5) Symphalangism, (6) Arachnodactyly, (7.

Overall, anomalies of the coronary arteries are rather rare and the incidence of primary congenital coronary anomalies varies from % in a necropsy series reported by Alexander and Griffith to % of patients undergoing cardiac catheterisation in a series of more than 38 patients.

On 4th wk after fertilization. Consists of mesodermal cells covered by ectoderm. Under guidance of three signaling centers: 1. Deformities of the Hand Hand deformities can occur in the bone or joints, or as a result of imbalance of different groups of muscles cause by nerve dysfunction, or due to congenital defects.

Bony deformities are due to fractures of bones that have healed in a crooked or displaced position. Atlas of congenital anomalies of the head and neck, congenital anomalies of the head and neck, Pediatric, ATLAS IN MEDICAL, Fig 1A.

Treacher Collins syndrome in an infant with severe manifestations, as seen on lateral (A) and frontal (B) views.

[] We present 3 sporadic cases of congenital left hand Acheiria, a rare congenital defect. hand-arm articulation. The incidence of phocomelia is currently 1% of all congenital upper-extremity anomalies. 5 The deformity was more prevalent during the decades when thalidomide was pre-scribed for pregnant women.1 Asso-ciated anomalies include radial-ray deficiency of the opposite limb, cleft lip, and cleft palate.6 Treatment is usually.

Congenital anomalies of the hand and upper extremity are classified according to appearance; thus, the myriad of disparate presentations are organized into groups that share common morphologic features.

The primary purpose of a classification is to enhance communication about the specific features of a condition by providing a descriptive framework for clinicians.

In Reference Module in Biomedical Sciences, Mechanical factors. Although mechanical factors have been implicated in the genesis of congenital malformations for centuries, only in more recent years has it been possible to relate specific malformations to mechanical causes.

Many of the most common anomalies, such as clubfoot, congenital hip dislocations, and even certain deformations of. One to two percent of newborns are born with congenital defects, and 10% of them have congenital differences of the upper extremity. 1, 2) As congenital differences of the upper extremity are a significant challenge, the reconstructive surgeon has a unique opportunity to positively affect the child's growth and development.

3) The primary purpose of a classification system is to increase. Congenital Deformities of the Hand | In the past years marked progress has been made in the surgical treatment of congenital anomalies of the hand.

More and more, the reluctance to operate on these deformities has been abandoned. The purpose of this study is to analyse three different lengthening techniques used in 31 small bones for congenital malformations of the hand and foot: 15 metacarpals, 12 metatarsals, 1 foot stump and 3 spaces between a previously transplanted phalanx end of the carpus or the metacarpal.

In contrast, parents may be dismayed by the appearance of an anomalous hand and may. Written by leading experts in the fields of pediatrics, orthopedic surgery and plastic and reconstructive hand surgery, Congenital Anomalies of the Upper Extremity encompasses the current knowledge of genetic and molecular causes of and surgical and non-surgical treatment for, deformities of the hand.

The bookcovers the many variations of congenital anomaly encountered in the clinical setting.Congenital Hand Differences Fundamentals. Congenital means "present at birth." A congenital hand difference is a variation in the normal formation of the hand that occurs when the fetus is in the womb.

Differences in a child’s physical appearance – such as hand differences – are noticeable at birth, which can be distressing to the parents. All these series have focused on the embryological types of congenital hand anomalies, the surgical techniques, and the results with respect to motion, sensibility, and growth; but very little has been published on the specific indications for microsurgical reconstruction of congenital absent digits.
