Brachydactyly of Fingers

Short Fingers


Presentation

  • The anomalies are organized by anatomical system and presented in a consistent manner, including details of the clinical presentation, epidemiology, embryology, treatment and prevention for each anomaly.[books.google.com]
  • Prepare for the USMLE Step 1 with clinical case presentations, highlighted in special boxes, that demonstrate how embryology concepts relate to clinical practice.[books.google.com]
  • 10 Sub-sections are presented below, each section covers a different aspect involving the meaning of finger lengths. The continuation of this page presents a quick summary for each section.[handresearch.com]
  • Of special value is the thorax and various conditions that exhibit that sign. presentation of variability of the condition with age.[books.google.com]
  • The ring and little fingers are shorter and present syndactyly. This condition is not associated with systemic problems or is inherited.[cirugiamanoinfantil.com]
Pathologist
  • All clinicians and scientists interested in birth defects, including pediatricians, geneticists, genetic counselors, obstetricians, and pediatric pathologists, will find this book to be an invaluable source of information.[books.google.com]
Collapse
  • The SLAC wrist: scapholunate advanced collapse pattern of degenerative Arthritis. J Hand Surg [Am] 1984: 9-A:358-65. ‏ الصفحة 308 - Arnett FC, Edworthy SM, Bloch DA. McShane DJ, Fries JF, Cooper NS, Healey LA, Kaplan SR, Liang MH, Luthra HS.[books.google.com]
Dentist
  • He had a spot in his left cheek that the dentist was concerned about. Since then out family doctor and dentist have said it is healing quit well.[justanswer.com]
Manic Behavior
  • I looked and looked to see if there's some association between manic behavior or other kind of strange behavioral traits, and I have not been able to find anything. So he's just a man with small, small hands? Yes, exactly… small metacarpals.[esquire.com]
Polyneuropathy
  • Type A1 brachydactyly, short stature, hearing loss, microcephaly, mental retardation and ptosis Atypical facial clefting in a patient with Goltz syndrome Congenital aplasia of the extensor muscles of the fingers and thumb associated with generalized polyneuropathy[documents.mx]

Workup

  • In the case of our patient, no further workup was considered. Her brachydactyly was categorized as type E in Bell’s classification system.[consultant360.com]

Treatment

  • Make informed clinical choices for each patient, from diagnosis and treatment selection through post-treatment strategies and management of complications, with new evidence-based criteria throughout.[books.google.com]
  • Apply the latest treatments, rehabilitation protocols, and expertise of leading surgeons and therapists to help your patients regain maximum movement after traumatic injuries or to improve limited functionality caused by chronic or acquired conditions[books.google.com]
  • Treatment depends on the degree of absence of the fingers. Children with a competent thumb, and the presence of any finger, generally do not require treatment because they develop a hand pinch with time.[cirugiamanoinfantil.com]
  • The anomalies are organized by anatomical system and presented in a consistent manner, including details of the clinical presentation, epidemiology, embryology, treatment and prevention for each anomaly.[books.google.com]
  • I have mixed feeling about surgical treatment. My gut feeling is that, if possible, something permanent like surgery should be postponed, at least until you can see how the child functions with the hand he has.[healdove.com]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis - Anonychia-onychodystrophy with brachydactyly type B and ectrodactyly Not supplied. Treatment - Anonychia-onychodystrophy with brachydactyly type B and ectrodactyly Not supplied.[checkorphan.org]
  • […] phalanges Treatment: Conservative Occupational Therapy for adaptive needs, but often not necessary Surgical cosmetic ‘nubbin’ removal bone lengthening for improved pinch formation of satisfactory radial and ulnar ‘posts’ web-space deepening Outcomes: Prognosis[posna.org]
  • Prognosis greatly depends on: • The extent of the disease. • The response to therapy. • Age and overall health of the child. • Your child's tolerance of specific procedures or therapies. • New developments in treatment.[texaschildrens.org]
  • Prognosis Isolated BD generally has an excellent prognosis. When BD is associated with other health problems or is part of another condition, the overall prognosis depends upon the nature of the associated condition.[encyclopedia.com]
  • […] brachydactyly usually is transmitted in an autosomal dominant pattern, with variable penetrance. 3 The literature is scarce on the incidence of concomitant brachymetacarpia and brachymetatarsia. 4 Mild brachydactyly often is insignificant in terms of functional prognosis[consultant360.com]

Etiology

  • Hand Malformations Hand and finger malformations represent a challenging area of clinical genetics from the standpoint of understanding the classification as well as in understanding the genetic etiologies, which are often due to single gene mutations[peds.ufl.edu]
  • Etiology unknown manifests at gestational week 6-8 Genetics depends on the specific type of brachydactyly Defects in: Bone Morphogenic Protein (BMP), Indian Hedgehog (IHH), and HOX have been identified Incidence in general it is rare however in types[posna.org]

Epidemiology

  • The anomalies are organized by anatomical system and presented in a consistent manner, including details of the clinical presentation, epidemiology, embryology, treatment and prevention for each anomaly.[books.google.com]

Prevention

  • The anomalies are organized by anatomical system and presented in a consistent manner, including details of the clinical presentation, epidemiology, embryology, treatment and prevention for each anomaly.[books.google.com]
  • There is no known way that the mother can cause her child to have symbrachydactyly, and no way she can prevent it. Symbrachydactyly is not genetic, so it does not run in families. I know that no one else in my family has it.[healdove.com]
  • Prevention brachydactyly Specific preventive maintenance is not developed because the brachydactyly is genetically determined, inherited anomaly.[medicalformat.com]

  • In some cases physical and occupational therapy are required to help maximize usage of the arm and prevent muscle tightening.[dellchildrens.net]
