Congenital Anomalies of the Upper Extremity Book Excerpt:

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. Embryology, classification, incidence and anesthesia considerations are discussed first, followed by physical medicine, rehabilitation and therapy management, including psychological considerations, for children living with these conditions. Failures of formation and differentiation of the fingers and hand plate, duplication, and overgrowth, as well as other generalized anomalies, are then presented in detail, including symbrachydactyly, syndactyly, Apert syndrome, polydactyly, amniotic band syndrome and Madelung deformity, among others. Complete with plentiful photographs and illustrations to guide the clinician in preparing for and performing the necessary treatments, this is an essential book for hand surgeons, orthopedists and plastic surgeons.

Congenital Deformities of the Hand Book Excerpt:

In the past 10-15 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 (1959-1962), which involved the birth of many children with deformed upper limbs. These previously rare severe abnormalities resulted in many problems and required new ways of thinking in terms of their treatment by all persons concerned with their care. At the same time hand surgery was beginning to come of age and the combination of these two events increased the interest in the field of hand anomalies, particularly by orthopaedic surgeons who had always been involved in it. The idea and preparation for this book go back to 1964. Since that time nearly all operations on anomalous hands were systematically charted by us. They were photographically recorded from skin incision to wound closure. Regular follow-up examinations were performed. This atlas represents our experience gained in over a thousand operations. The book has been written by practitioners. We hope that a hand surgeon looking for additional advice will find answers in regard to therapy and surgical suggestions. This intent influenced the book's compilation and structure: - Only those operations that have given us good long-term results will be discussed.

Congenital Anomalies of the Upper Extremity Book Excerpt:

Now in a revised and updated second edition, this book encompasses the current knowledge of genetic and molecular causes of, and surgical and non-surgical treatment for, congenital deformities of the hand. Divided into five sections, this comprehensive text presents the many variations of congenital anomaly encountered in the clinical setting. Part I discusses general considerations for congenital deformity, including embryology and classification, incidence and prevalence, genetics, anesthesia, prosthetics and rehabilitation principles, hand therapy and even psychological considerations for children living with these conditions. The second and third sections present deformities based on failures of formation and/or differentiation of the axis and hand plate respectively: radial and ulnar longitudinal deficiencies, symbrachydactyly, syndactyly (including Apert Syndrome), clinodactyly and captodactyly, and synostosis and coalitions are described in detail, among others. Duplication deformities, such as radial and ulnar polydactyly, are covered in part IV. The final section discussed overgrowth (macrodactyly), amniotic band syndrome, arthrogryposis, Madelung deformity, epidermolysis bullosa and additional generalized skeletal anomalies. All chapters are generously referenced and illustrated with radiography and full-color photographs. Bringing together the latest clinical evidence and surgical interventions, this second edition of Congenital Anomalies of the Upper Extremity will continue to be an excellent resource for orthopedic, hand and plastic surgeons treating young patients with these challenging deformities of the hand.
