Later, as the fetus grows but the bands do not, the bands become constricting. Amniotic band constriction also known as “amniotic band syndrome”, “ADAM gandas, “Amniotic band sequence”, “Congenital constriction bands” and “Pseudoainhum” [1] is a congenital disorder caused by entrapment of fetal parts usually a limb or digits in fibrous amniotic bands while in utero.

Physical and occupational therapy may be needed long term. Umbilical cord prolapse Nuchal cord Single umbilical artery. In more severe cases, the bands can constrict the limb causing decreased blood supply and amputation.

Bands which wrap around fingers and toes can result in syndactyly or amputations of the digits. Because the constricting mechanism of the amniotic band theory does not explain the high incidence of cleft palate and other forms of cleft defects occurring together with ABS, this co-occurrence suggests an “intrinsic” defect of the blood circulation. Discuss Proposed since March This operation has been successfully performed on fetuses as young as 22 weeks.


The price and complexity of these prosthetics vary dramatically, but advances in 3-D printing have helped to increase the availability of artificial fingers while reducing their cost of production. Amniotic bands can also sometimes attach to the face or neck causing deformities such as cleft lip and palate. Treatment usually occurs after birth and where plastic and reconstructive surgery is considered to treat the resulting deformity.

Gestational thrombocytopenia Pregnancy-induced hypercoagulability. The amniotic band theory is that ABS occurs due to a partial rupture of the amniotic sac. If the bands become wrapped around the head or umbilical cord it can be life-threatening for the fetus. Misdiagnosis is also common, so if there are any signs of amniotic bands, further detailed ultrasound tests should be done to assess the severity.

Amniotic band constriction – Wikipedia

In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Often the bands are detected indirectly because of the constrictions and swelling upon limbs, digits, etc.

Pregnancy with abortive outcome Ectopic pregnancy Abdominal pregnancy Cervical pregnancy Interstitial pregnancy Ovarian pregnancy Heterotopic pregnancy Molar pregnancy Miscarriage Stillbirth. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. In other instances, bands can wrap around limbs causing restriction of movement resulting in clubbed feet. It has been suggested that this article be merged with Constriction ring syndrome. Vertically transmitted infection Neonatal infection Congenital rubella syndrome Neonatal herpes simplex Mycoplasma hominis amniotticas Ureaplasma urealyticum infection Omphalitis Neonatal sepsis Group B streptococcal infection Neonatal conjunctivitis.


Fibrous bands of the ruptured amnion float in the amniotic fluid and can encircle and trap some part of the fetus.

In rare cases, if diagnosed in utero, fetal surgery may be considered to save a limb which is in danger of amputation or other deformity. Gray baby syndrome muscle tone Congenital hypertonia Congenital hypotonia. Every case is different and multiple bands may be entangled around the fetus. Amniotic band syndrome bajdas often difficult to detect before birth as the individual strands are small and hard to see on ultrasound.

Concomitant conditions Diabetes mellitus Systemic lupus erythematosus Thyroid disorders Maternal death Sexual activity during pregnancy.

Sindrome De Banda Amniotica

A strong relationship between ABS and clubfoot also called “talipes” exists. Ileus Necrotizing enterocolitis Meconium peritonitis. This constriction reduces blood circulation, hence causes congenital abnormalities. Prosthetics may help some ABS sufferers to live more functional lives. Placenta praevia Placental insufficiency Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.

D ICD – This typically would not be attempted if neither vital organs nor the umbilical cord were affected. Intrauterine hypoxia Infant respiratory distress banvas Transient tachypnea of the newborn Meconium aspiration syndrome pleural disease Pneumothorax Pneumomediastinum Wilson—Mikity syndrome Bronchopulmonary dysplasia. The vascular disruption theory: Retrieved from ” https: It is rare but possible for the membrane to become wrapped around the placenta or the neck of the baby in the amnioticaa causing strangulation and death.
