It is frequently associated with amputations of fingers or members, sindactily, acrossindactily (fenestrated sindactily), malformations in face, thorax, and/or abdomen. The present work represents our experience in the evaluation and treatment of the Constriction Congenital Band Syndrome. We have treated and assisted 10 patients in our service in a 20 year-old period.
