Constriction ring syndrome
It is characterised by constrictions around limbs, digits or other body parts in the child.
The fluid which surrounds the child in the uterus is called amniotic fluid. In rare occasions, amniotic fluid disruption occurs . This fluid forms amniotic bands that encircle and strangulate limbs or parts of limbs in utero.
The constriction lines may be completely or incompletely around the upper or lower limbs. It can cause fusion between fingers or toes.
Treatment is aimed at both functional and aesthetic improvement. Mainstay of treatment are careful removal of scar, elongation and reorientation of scar.
