What is Congenital Limb Deficiency?
Congenital limb deficiencies are conditions present at birth that are characterized by missing, incomplete or abnormally formed bone. Examples of these conditions include Congenital short femur, Congenital femoral deficiency, Fibular hemimelia, tibial hemimelia and congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia (CPT). In some cases, the conditions can occur in conjunction with one another. Deformity related to limb deficiencies can range from relatively minor to severe cases and typically diagnosed at birth. Not all treatment for these conditions are the same, and treatment may vary depending on the severity, age, symptoms and health of your child.
