  • contracture
  • Current syndactyly release techniques have inherent disadvantages such as the use of skin from both the interdigital halves of the syndactylized fingers, the need to skin graft the donor site, postoperative flexion contracture, and need of 2 or more surgical procedures to obtain the desired result.

  • 10 ] The proximally-based dorsal rectangular flap is most commonly used[ 11 ] The main complications of corrective surgery are infection, delayed wound healing, graft loss, flap loss, syndactyly relapse and contracture of adjacent fingers. (parjournal.net)
  • genetic
  • Sequence analyses of related syndactyly genes in this region identified c.917G>A (p.R306Q) in the homeodomain of HOXD13 in family A. Analysis on family B identified the mutation c.916C>G (p.R306G) and therefore confirmed the genetic homogeneity. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • limb
  • Syndactyly type 3 (SD3) is a limb abnormality present at birth that is characterized by complete fusion of the 4th and 5th fingers on both hands. (nih.gov)
  • incomplete
  • The distinction between a complete and incomplete syndactyly is determined by the extent of fusion in the proximal-distal axis. (parjournal.net)
  • The incomplete syndactyly in contrast, encompasses all fusions from the commissure that fall short of the nail fold. (parjournal.net)
  • However in mild cases, such as incomplete syndactyly proximal to the proximal inter-phalangeal joint, various techniques for correcting the web only with local flaps from surrounding tissues have been reported. (parjournal.net)
