Acrosyndactyly

  • Acrosyndactyly

Description of disability:

Acrosyndactyly describes the condition in which there is fusion of the distal portions of the digits, while the proximal regions and particularly the webs remain unaffected. Acrosyndactyly is a more complex type of syndactyly. The fingers had separated during development, but a band formed around the fingers causing them to reunite.

Treatment:

Classification:

Type I with conjoined finger tips with well formed webs w/ normal depth. Treatment involves separation and contouring of the tips of the digits; partial digit ablation may be required.

Type II where tips of digits are joined and web formation is incomplete. Treatment involves separation of tips of digits and deepening of web space.

Type III with absent web spaces, sinus tracts, joined digit clefts. Treatment as in simple syndactyly, border digits are reconstructed first

Post operative care: 

Routine postoperative care including elevation of the part and immobilization and reviews every four days for 2 weeks.
