Amniotic Band Syndrome

Published on July 25th, 2010

Amniotic band syndrome (ABS) is an uncommon, congenital fetal abnormality that causes disfigured feet.

Some researchers believe that ABS is caused by early amniotic rupture, which leads to the formation of fibrous strands that entangle limbs and appendages.

Contact our office to discuss treatment options, which may include surgical excision of the fibrous band and any necrotic tissue.
