Description of disability:

Symbrachydactyly or spade hand is a condition in which a child is born with small or missing fingers or a missing hand. There may also be webbed fingers or a short hand or forearm.

Treatment:

It is a congenital abnormality, characterized by limb anomalies consisting of brachydactyly, cutaneous syndactyly and global hypoplasia of the hand or, foot. In many cases, bones will be missing from the fingers and some fingers or toes may be missing altogether. The ends of the hand may have "nubbins"— small stumps where the finger would have developed, which may have tiny residual nails.

Post operative care: 

The child needs regular postoperative follow-ups and at each stage counseling and decision making as to what should be the next step and its feasibility and risk/benefit ratio.
