The underlying aetiology and pathogenesis of congenital contractures, particularly arthrogryposis and the mechanism of the mutations remains an active area of investigation, because identifying these factors could help to develop treatment and congenital finding of arthrogryposis.

Arthrogryposis is a rare condition.

The garment looks like normal clothing but contains bundled steel wires under the arms, which help to push the arms toward a lifted position while allowing the wearer to move freely from that position. 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.

Diseases of joints M00—M19— Cleidocranial dysostosis Sprengel’s deformity Wallis—Zieff—Goldblatt syndrome.

Surgical intervention may also improve joint mobility and function. The malformations of arthrogryposis can be secondary to environmental factors such as: Most of those mutations are missensewhich means the mutation results in a different amino acid.

But with proper treatment, most children make significant improvements in their range of motion and ability to move their limbs which enables them to do activities of daily life, and live relatively normal lives. There are a few syndromes like the Freeman-Sheldon and Gordon syndrome, which have craniofacial involvement. Inflammation Infectious Septic arthritis Tuberculosis arthritis Reactive multipl indirectly.

Genu valgum Genu varum Genu recurvatum Discoid meniscus Congenital patellar dislocation Congenital knee dislocation. The treatment of arthrogryposis includes occupational therapyphysical therapysplinting and surgery. Journal of Children’s Orthopaedics. Children with the amyoplasia type of arthrogryposis usually have flexed and ulnarly deviated wrists.

Retrieved 22 March Some authors say the overall prevalence is one in [3] and others say it is one in among European live births.

In addition, a tendon transfer of the extensor carpi ulnaris to the extensor carpi radialis brevis may be performed to correct ulnar deviation or wrist extension weakness, or both.

Heberden’s node Bouchard’s nodes. Retrieved from ” https: This tendon transfer is only used if the extensor carpi ulnaris appears to be functional enough.

People with AMC look their worst at birth. Acheiropodia Ectromelia Phocomelia Amelia Hemimelia. AMC has been divided into three groups: Types of arthrogryposis with a primary neurological or muscle disease belong to the syndromic group. Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics. Report of five patients from three Italian families”.

Arthrogryposis – Wikipedia

Researchers at the University of Delaware are developing a light and unobtrusive therapeutic garment, suitable for babies and children, called the Playskin Lift. Myasthenia gravis of the mother leads also in rare cases to arthrogryposis. These other diagnoses could affect any organ in a patient. Sufficient bone is resected to at multple be able to put the wrist in a neutral position.

Confirmation of a new type of arthrogryposis”. For example, the Artorgriposis Robotic Exoskeleton is a potential assistive device built on a back brace, shadowing the upper arm and forearm. A Review and Approach to Prenatal Diagnosis”.


There is no way to completely resolve or cure AMC.

This position is held into place with two cross K-wires. The Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development. Arthrogryposis could also be caused by intrinsic factors. The flap is made as wide as possible, but still small enough to close with the excessive skin on the palmar side of the index finger. Loss of muscle mass with an imbalance of jultiple power at the joint can lead to connective tissue abnormality. Archived from the original on Intelligence is normal to above normal in children with amyoplasia, [4] but it is not known how many of these children have an above normal intelligence, and there is no literature available about the cause of this syndrome.

There are a number of passive devices for enhancing limb movement, intended to be worn to aid movement and encourage muscular development.

Amyoplasia is characterized by severe joint contractures and muscle weakness. Therapeutic interventions that are cornerstone in the treatment artrofriposis AMC include: Supporting limbs, easing Parkinson’s”. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

Since arthrogryposis includes many different types, the treatment varies between patients depending on the symptoms. Pectus excavatum Pectus carinatum.
