A congenital anomaly of the upper extremity is present in 1 of every live births. 1 In most cases, the defor-mity is minor and causes no func-tional deficit, but in 10% the patient requires treatment. 2 Such anomalies are often associated with cardiovas-cular, craniofacial, neurologic, and other musculoskeletal abnormali-ties.

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 book covers the many variations of congenital anomaly encountered in the clinical setting.

In total, 37 congenital upper extremity anomalies and syndromes are discussed. Salient and common presenting features are described in detail and illustrated with the aid of high-quality. Other Special Populations. Management of Congenital Hand Anomalies.

Rehabilitation of the Hand and Upper Extremity in Tetraplegia. In other populations, it is more often associated with a syndrome of multiple congenital anomalies or chromosomal defects.

Among the syndromes to be considered are Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome, Meckel syndrome, Ellis-van Creveld syndrome, McKusick-Kaufman syndrome, Down syndrome, and Bardet-Biedl syndrome.

Congenital deficiencies are more common than acquired amputations in children. Frantz and O’Rahilly developed a system of classification that is still commonly used to evaluate congenital anomalies of the extremities.

1 Each malformation is defined by the part that is deficient. For example, the fibula is deficient in fibular hemimelia. However, none of these professionals treat the entirety of pediatric upper extremity pathology, and no single reference has focused on the treatment of the pediatric upper extremity as a whole.

For example, fractures have typically been written about in pediatric textbooks, while tendon and nerve injuries are covered in adult hand textbooks.

Congenital deformities of upper limbs: a) Shoulder - Sprengel's shoulder. b) Elbow - congenital superior radio ulnar synostesis. c) Wrist - Madelung's deformity. d) Hand - syndactylism, poly dactylism.

The text serves as a one-stop reference for practitioners who treat musicians, athletes, and other patients with repetitive motion problems or arthritis.

The Oberg, Manske, Tonkin Classification of congenital anomalies of the hand and upper limb utilizes dysmorphological concepts to distinguish Malformations from Deformations and Dysplasias. Malformations are abnormalities of Formation and/or Differentiation of tissues.

Deformations are abnormalities which occur after tissue is formed. The Upper Limbs Congenital Limb Shortening • Rhizomelic type: shortening of the proximal segment of an extremity (humerus or femur); in achondroplasia and pseudoachondroplasia.

• Mesomelic type: shortening of the middle segment of an extremity (radius, ulna, fibula, or tibia); in Madelung deformity and Ellis-van Creveld syndrome. Congenital limb defects occur when a portion or the entire upper or lower limb fails to form normally when the baby is developing in the uterus.

The most common congenital limb defects can include: complete or partial absence of the limb (such as fibula hemimelia or congenital absence of the tibia). Bone disease - Bone disease - Developmental abnormalities and hereditary conditions: Many diseases of the skeletal system are congenital in the sense that they become evident at or soon after birth.

This does not imply that they all are genetically determined. Most are caused by factors operating during pregnancy, delivery, or early infancy. A Fetal alcohol syndrome: Maternal alcoholism can cause growth disturbances, central nervous system dysfunction, dysmorphic facies, hip dislocation, cervical spine vertebral and upper extremity congenital fusions, congenital scoliosis, and myelodysplasia.

Contractures respond to physical therapy. Congenital pseudarthrosis of the left clavicle is associated with other congenital disorders, such as dextrocardia8, 10, 12, 14, Bilateral involvement may occur in up to 10% of the cases and is associated with an abnormally high position for the subclavian artery, caused by the presence of cervical ribs or vertical turning of the upper ribs.

A birth defect, also known as a congenital disorder, is a condition present at birth regardless of its cause. Birth defects may result in disabilities that may be physical, intellectual, or developmental.

The disabilities can range from mild to severe. Birth defects are divided into two main types: structural disorders in which problems are seen with the shape of a body part and functional.

Congenital anomalies of the upper extremity, although less common than congenital heart disease, are noted in approximately 2 per live births.

This incidence varies by country due to higher incidence of certain malformations in patients of certain ethnic backgrounds, such as polydactyly in those of African descent or amniotic bands in. A short handbook published online for medical students by Plastic Surgery Education Network.

Book covers 10 chapters on wounds, grafts and flaps, skin and subcutaneous flaps, head and neck, breast trunk, and external genitalia, upper and lower extremity, thermal injuries, aesthetic surgery and body contouring. Congenital anomalies, however, are a challenge to the orthopaedic surgeon and the prosthetist in that they may be entirely unsuitable for standard prostheses because of gross variations in limb contour, substandard muscle power, and underlying skeletal deficiencies.

Anomalies (Birth Defects) Birth defects (congenital anomalies) are defined as abnormalities of structure, function, or body metabolism that are present at birth.
