Abstract

Constriction ring syndrome is a congenital anomaly with sometimes devastating consequences. Because of the unknown etiology, treatment is aimed at recovery of function and prevention of the sequelae rather than prevention of the syndrome. This paper aimed to review the theories of the etiology, the features and associated defects, and the operative management of constriction ring syndrome.
