• limb
  • Boston Children's Hospital's Orthopedic Center's Hand and Orthopedic Upper Extremity Program is dedicated to the comprehensive care of all upper limb conditions in infants, children and adolescents. (childrenshospital.org)
  • Amniotic band constriction (also known as "amniotic band syndrome", "ADAM complex", "Amniotic band sequence", "Congenital constriction bands" and "Pseudoainhum") is a congenital disorder caused by entrapment of fetal parts (usually a limb or digits) in fibrous amniotic bands while in utero. (wikipedia.org)
  • In rare cases, if diagnosed in utero, fetal surgery may be considered to save a limb which is in danger of amputation or other deformity. (wikipedia.org)
  • A number of factors make the identification of the genetic defects underlying human ectrodactyly a complicated process: the limited number of families linked to each split hand/foot malformation (SHFM) locus, the large number of morphogens involved in limb development, the complex interactions between these morphogens, the involvement of modifier genes, and the presumed involvement of multiple gene or long-range regulatory elements in some cases of ectrodactyly. (wikipedia.org)
  • The pathophysiology of cleft hand is thought to be a result of a wedge-shaped defect of the apical ectoderm of the limb bud (AER: apical ectodermal ridge). (wikipedia.org)
  • She was renowned for her innovative techniques for correcting limb deformities. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mice that were lacking both copies of the TWIST gene were spontaneously aborted prior to birth, and had serious deformities including abnormal limb and head defects and failure of the neural tube to properly close. (wikipedia.org)
  • radial
  • The central ray of the hand is affected and usually appears without proximal deficiencies of nerves, vessels, tendons, muscles and bones in contrast to the radial and ulnar deficiencies. (wikipedia.org)
  • Contractures
  • Another example of failure of the hand to separate is seen in contractures of the hand. (lomalindahealth.org)
  • Contractures of the hand may also develop as a result of a problem with the cells in the womb. (lomalindahealth.org)
  • Typically the result of a failure of the cells to differentiate in utero, contractures are an abnormal pulling forward of the digits of the hand, usually caused by problems with the muscles or skin. (rochesterregional.org)
  • disorder
  • It is a rare form of a congenital disorder in which the development of the hand is disturbed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Eventually, this disorder was ruled distinct from a syndrome presented by Prader and Willi (Prader-Willi syndrome) because of its mode of inheritance, gynecomastia, and presence of small hands and feet. (wikipedia.org)
  • involve
  • Residents are welcome on any of these trips, which involve educating local health care providers and directly caring for children and adults requiring primarily oromaxillofacial reconstructive, cardiac or orthopedic surgery. (ucsd.edu)
  • anesthesia
  • The total cost will also depend on the length and complexity of the hand surgery procedure, the region in which the hand surgery is performed, and other additional costs such as anesthesia fees, facilities fees, medication costs etc. (perfectyourself.com)
  • premature
  • Trigonocephaly (Greek: 'trigonon' = triangle, 'kephale' = head) is a congenital condition of premature fusion of the metopic suture (Greek: 'metopon' = forehead) leading to a triangular shaped forehead. (wikipedia.org)
  • syndrome
  • The identified mutation for SHSF syndrome (split-hand/split-foot syndrome) a duplication on 10q24, and not a mutation of the tp63 gene as in families affected by EEC syndrome (ectrodactyly-ectodermal dysplasia-cleft syndrome). (wikipedia.org)
  • However, the typical hand deformities in patients with Apert Syndrome distinguish it from the other syndromes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Wilson-Turner Syndrome (WTS), also known as Mental Retardation X Linked Syndromic 6 (MRXS6), or Mental Retardation X Linked with Gynecomastia and Obesity is a congenital condition characterized by intellectual disability and associated with childhood-onset obesity. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone
  • This causes either a complete absence of a part of the body, such as the hand, or a missing structure, such as part of the arm bone. (lomalindahealth.org)
  • Diego
  • For over two decades, many UC San Diego residents and attendings have enjoyed the opportunity to work with Interface , a volunteer group based in San Diego and that offers reconstructive surgery to children in Mexico. (ucsd.edu)
