Congenital Amputee: Individual born missing a limb(s). Technically, these individuals are not Amputees, but are considered to be "Limb Deficient.” Congenital Anomaly: A birth abnormality such as a missing limb (amelia) or deformed limb (phocomelia). Congenital Defiency: condition present at birth, when all or part of a limb fails to develop.

International Child Amputee Network (I-CAN) International Child Amputee Network (I-CAN) a tax exempt, (c)(3) organization, is dedicated to promoting education, support, information, and empowerment to traumatic and congenital limb different children and their families. A survey of child amputee clinics in North America explored early fitting of children with unilateral below-elbow limb absence. Responses from 45 of 80 (56%) clinics revealed that most clinics prefer to fit at 6 months and add an active control system by 18 months.
The primary cause of transverse upper limb deficiencies in children is congenital, the majority of them being below elbow. 1,2 Prosthetic rejection rates in children and young adults with a unilateral congenital transverse below-elbow deficiency (UCBED) are considerable. In the present study we focus on the age at initial prosthesis fitting. Bedard, T, Lowry, RB, Sibbald, B.

Classification. This disorder is classified according to the level of limb truncation. The most common level of truncation is the proximal forearm (below-the-elbow, Fig. 1), followed by transcarpal, distal forearm, and brachial above-the-elbow levels.

Bill Baughn and his wife, Joyce, a bilateral below elbow amputee since age six, established I-CAN (International Child Amputee Network) and an Internet mailing list to provide information and support contacts to children with absent or underdeveloped limbs and their parents.
If you are a congenital amputee or became an amputee as a child, your counsel can help parents deal with a situation.
Introduction. Congenital upper limb defects affect between and births .A considerable group of congenital upper limb anomalies result in reduction deficiencies ( births ).Children with such impairments often receive prosthetic treatment in order to improve their functionality and to avoid developmental by: Background.
Children with unilateral congenital below elbow deficiency (UCBED) lack a part of an arm, thereby lacking a part of the typical hand function.
Little is known on the performance of daily activities in very young children with UCBED, usage of their affected arm with or without prosthesis during play, and neurological by: 6. Regarding prosthetic wearers, van Dijk-Koot et al discovered the top reason a child between the ages of 3–17 would use a prosthesis would be for cycling.
3 In an extensive study by James et al, the indication was that the use of a prosthesis for congenital below elbow amputees does not appear to improve function or quality of life. 4 Some of Cited by: 4.

The dropout rate in children with a below-elbow amputation was similar to that reported in below-elbow child amputees wearing a conventional body-powered prosthesis (10% vs.
13%). Subjects were 37 unilateral below elbow amputees between the ages of 0 and 16 at the time of their first experienced fitting with a powered prosthesis at our Center. The information was collected from medical records and through face-to-face interviews, and we examined rejection rate and the factors affecting the use of powered prosthesis.

J Bone Joint Surg Br. ; – In all three groups the training regime has been geared to the below elbow amputee as the commonest site of congenital absence.
There are, however, within these groups several children with an above elbow or through elbow deficiency whose training needs even closer supervision, so that they can learn the skill of operating an elbow mechanism.

This condition may be the result of the constriction of fibrous bands within the membrane that surrounds the developing fetus (amniotic band syndrome) or the exposure to substances known to cause birth defects (teratogenic agents).

Transverse deficiency (TD) is a type of failure of formation 1,2 that may appear similar to an amputation; in the past, TD was sometimes termed “congenital amputation.” This type of malformation is usually sporadic, unilateral, and not associated with any other anomalies.
The cause is usually unknown, although chorionic villus sampling and maternal misoprostol use 3 and smoking 4 have been. 74 Short Below-Elbow Amputation Roberta T. Ciocco and Scott H.
Kozin History and Clinical Presentation A 4-month-old girl presented with congenital deficiency of the right upper extremity (Fig. 74–1). She was born 2 weeks early by cesarean section secondary to low amniotic fluid. The child presented with no other medical or developmental problems.
The incidence of congenital limb deficiencies is reported to be approximately A census of child amputees inby the Association of Prosthetic and Orthotic Clinics of North America, indicated that 67% were congenital and 33% acquired.
The manual-friction wrist unit is often useful for congenital amputees. At first it can be positioned by the parents, and later by the child himself. Sockets that permit rotation are not usually indicated in short below-elbow stumps, since residual pronation and supination is minimal.Limb deficiencies in children are mainly congenital, with congenital upper limb deficiencies occurring at a prevalence of –/10, total births.
1,2 In Japan, the prevalence is unknown, and prostheses for children with congenital upper limb deficiencies have not been sufficiently prescribed especially when the deficiencies are unilateral.
Even when they have prostheses, many are just.At the Child Amputee Prosthetics Project (CAPP) at the University of California in Los Angeles, treatment of children with limb deficiencies is based on the principles of normal child development. The child’s own developmental progress guides the timing of the first passive prosthetic fitting and later on the activation of the terminal device.
