Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC), or simply arthrogryposis, describes congenital joint AMC has been divided into three groups: amyoplasia, distal arthrogryposis, and syndromic. Amyoplasia is characterized by severe joint. Distal arthrogryposis type 1 is a disorder characterized by joint deformities ( contractures) that restrict movement in the hands and feet. The term ” arthrogryposis”. A normal neurological examination suggests that arthrogryposis is due to amyoplasia, a distal arthrogryposis, a generalized connective tissue disorder, or fetal.

Loss of muscle mass with an imbalance of muscle power at the joint can lead to connective tissue abnormality. In patients, Robinson et al. The clinical pattern of contractures takes the proximal and distal interphalangeal joints with no folds of flexion and thumb opposition difficult. Expert curators review the literature and organize it to facilitate your work. For example, the Wilmington Robotic Exoskeleton is a potential assistive device built on a back brace, shadowing the upper arm and forearm.

Shrimpton and Hoo reported a 3-generation family in which 6 members had variable manifestations of DA2B. Amyoplasia is the designation chosen by Hall et al.

Arthrogryposis: A Review and Update

Open in a separate window. An year-old family member had ulnar deviation of the wrists and thumb adduction, and a 3-year-old had only mild finger contractures at birth and epicanthal folds. Amyoplasia and the distal arthrogryposis syndromes, of which there are at least ten different types, distwl common causes of arthrogryposis when the results of neurological examination are normal.

Ann Plast Surg ; Mutations in fast skeletal troponin I, troponin T, and beta-tropomyosin that cause distal arthrogryposis all increase contractile function. Detailed information Professionals Review article English Studies helpful in diagnosing neuromuscular causes for arrogriposis include assays for acetylcholine receptor antibodies 67 and creatine kinase Sheldon-Hall syndrome SHS is a rare multiple congenital contracture syndrome characterized by contractures of the distal joints of the limbs, triangular face, downslanting palpebral fissures, small mouth, and high arched palate.


Am J Med Genet ; The inheritance, natural history, treatment guidelines, and outcomes of arthrogryposis vary among disorders, underscoring the importance of making a specific diagnosis in each child 15 – Human Malformations and Related Anomalies.

Conferencia I Jornada de ortesis Plantar en Pediatria. The garment looks like normal clothing but contains bundled steel wires dital the arms, which help to push the arms toward a lifted position while allowing the wearer to move freely from that position.


A revised and extended classification of the distal arthrogryposes. The flap is rotated around the tightest part of the thumb to the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb, allowing for a larger range of motion. Jones R, Dolcourt JL: Novel deletion of lysine 7 expands the clinical, histopathological and genetic spectrum of TPM2-related myopathies.

See digitotalar dysmorphism The clinical severity varied from limited range of motion at the shoulders and small calves without foot deformities in 1 family member, to overlapping fingers, camptodactyly, abnormal flexion creases, ulnar deviation, bilateral talipes equinovarus, and bilateral dislocated hips in another family member.

The index case diztal a Maori bushman who presented with severe congenital spinal stenosis and manifestations of distal arthrogryposis. They have intellectual disabilities.

In the distal, generally, contractures of the hands, elbows, hips, knees and fingers tend aartrogriposis improve. Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics. These results suggest that there might be multiple mechanisms by which contractility can be altered to cause contractures.

While the pattern of affected joints is consistent, the degree to which the joints are affected is highly variable, with equinovarus deformities ranging from mild to severe and hand involvement ranging from isolated hypoplasia of the distal interphalangeal crease of the fifth digit to severely clenched fists and ulnar deviation of the wrist.

Arthrogryposis describes the multiple congenital contractures that are part of more than different disorders. Summary Epidemiology Epidemiological data for the prevalence of SHS are not available, but less than cases have been reported in the literature.
