An Alternative Surgical Approach to Pseudoainhum: A Case Report.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2016 May-Jun;55(3):605-8. Epub 2016 Mar 5.

Associate Professor and Chief, Foot and Ankle Surgery, Department of Orthopaedics, University of Florida College of Medicine, Jacksonville, FL.

Pseudoainhum is a disorder of unknown etiology that is usually congenital and nonprogressive. One theory states it is caused by amnion band constriction in utero. These constriction bands lead, not only to a less cosmetically appealing foot, but also to long-term neurovascular compromise, resulting in amputation of the digit. Read More

ADAM "sequence" part II: hypothesis and speculation.

Am J Med Genet A 2015 Mar 21;167A(3):478-503. Epub 2015 Jan 21.

Department of Pediatrics (Division of Medical Genetics), University of Utah, School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, Utah; Department of Pathology, University of Utah, School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, Utah; Department of Human Genetics, University of Utah, School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, Utah; Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Utah, School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Noted for centuries in humans, a relatively hairless mammal [e.g., Hallero, 1766; Hohl, 1828 in Klunker, 2003], the so-called amniotic deformities, adhesions, mutilations (ADAM) sequence remains causally and pathogenetically incognito. Read More

[Complex of amniotic deformities, adhesions, mutilations: Endless debate].

Bol Med Hosp Infant Mex 2015 May - Jun;72(3):159-168. Epub 2015 Aug 10.

Cirugía Maxilofacial Pediátrica, Unidad de Medicina de Alta Especial, Hospital de Pediatría, Centro Médico Nacional Siglo XXI, Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social, México D.F., México.

Amniotic deformities, adhesions, mutilations (ADAM) complex is a broad heterogeneous spectrum of congenital anomalies. ADAM complex is characterized by constriction rings, amputation of fingers or limbs and the presence of the amniotic band. However, it may also involve craniofacial disruptions, body wall defects and internal organ abnormalities. Read More

Ten-year experience with one-step correction of constriction rings by complete circular resection and linear circumferential skin closure.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2013 Aug 6;66(8):1117-22. Epub 2013 May 6.

Department of Hand Surgery, Catholic Children's Hospital Wilhelmstift, Liliencronstr. 130, 22149 Hamburg, Germany.

Background: In amniotic band syndrome (ABS) constriction rings affecting the limbs are regularly seen at birth. Circular resection and closure with multiple Z-plasties has been described as the treatment of choice. However, direct circular closure creating linear circumferential scars might replace multiple Z- or W-plasties to reduce scars and improve aesthetic outcome. Read More

Human pancreatic cancer fusion 2 (HPC2) 1-B3: a novel monoclonal antibody to screen for pancreatic ductal dysplasia.

Cancer Cytopathol 2013 Jan 18;121(1):37-46. Epub 2012 Jul 18.

Department of Pathology, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon 97239, USA.

BACKGROUND.: Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is rarely detected early enough for patients to be cured. The objective of the authors was to develop a monoclonal antibody to distinguish adenocarcinoma and precancerous intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasia (IPMN) from benign epithelium. Read More

Case of complex craniofacial anomalies, bilateral nasal proboscides, palatal pituitary, upper limbs reduction, and amnion rupture sequence: disorganization phenotype?

Pediatr Dev Pathol 2001 Mar-Apr;4(2):192-202

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, OH 45267-0529, USA.

We report a case of a dizygotic twin with complex abnormalities of head, body, and limbs. The anomalies include the following: lateral and midline cleft upper lip, ectopic palatal pituitary, natal teeth, bilateral nasal proboscides with an absent nose, left microphthalmia with conjunctival-lined cyst, right ocular dysgenesis, bilateral retinal dysplasia, platybasia with skull asymmetry, hydrocephalus secondary to aqueductal atresia, brain hemispheric asymmetry with a parietal-occipital cortical flap, agenesis of posterior corpus callosum, absence of the olfactory nerves and left anterior cerebral artery, leptomeningeal and intraventricular heterotopias, right radial longitudinal terminal meromelia with constriction rings of fingers, partial syndactyly of the third and fourth left fingers, dorsiflexed great toes and pes equinovarus bilaterally, and multiple skin tags with a sacral appendage. Additionally, this twin's placental disc and extraplacental membranes were devoid of amnion. Read More

Fetal foot length--a new parameter for assessment of gestational age.

Int J Gynaecol Obstet 1989 May;29(1):35-8

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi.

Ultrasonographic measurement of fetal foot length, a new parameter, was correlated with the gestation age. One hundred and five ultrasonographic measurement of fetal foot length was performed between 13 and 42 weeks gestation. Comparison of linear regression of foot length versus gestational age demonstrated a strong correlation with an r2 value of 0. Read More
