Congenital Hand Deformities
Infants born with abnormalities of the hand are a source of great distress to the parents. These congenital hand deformities are rare, usually diagnosed at birth, and are sometimes associated with other systemic abnormalities that may require evaluation. These conditions can include syndactyly (webbing of the fingers), radial club hand, absence of the thumb or bifid thumb, polydactyly (extra digits), and sometimes congenital amputations.
Some conditions can be relatively mild and require no treatment. Other conditions should have treatment early. The patterns of hand use are often learned by age 2 years. At POACC, we recommend that surgery before 2 years of age is should be performed in order to maximize the development of hand potential.
