Congenital limb reduction deformities and use of oral contraceptives Anne Kricker, M.P.H., Jane W. Elliott, M.B., B.S., Jill M. Forrest, M.D., and Janet McCredie, M.D. Sydney, Australia A study of congenital limb deficiencies in two Australian states indicated that use of an oral contraceptive during pregnancy by the mother was associated with an increased risk of limb defect in the child. Q Unspecified reduction defect of lower limb. Q Unspecified Q74 Other congenital malformations of limb(s) Q Other congenital malformations of upper limb(s), including shoulder girdle. Q Congenital malformation of knee. Q Other.
Risk factors were studied in children with limb reduction defects (LRD) from consecutive births of known outcome during the period from to in the area which is covered by our registry of congenital malformations. For each case a control was studied. Links with this icon indicate that you are leaving the CDC website..

Microgastria limb reduction defect is a rare disorder with less than 60 previously reported cases. Children born with this condition have a small stomach (microgastria) and limb abnormalities. Symptoms may include vomiting, aspiration pneumonia and growth problems. Abnormalities involving the heart, lungs, kidney and gastrointestinal system are. Congenital scalp defects and distal limb reduction anomalies can occur as separate entities or in combination with other anomalies. They also occur together in an apparently autosomal dominant syndrome, an example of which is described in the present .

Upper and lower limb reduction defects occur when a part of or the entire arm (upper limb) or leg (lower limb) of a fetus fails to form completely during pregnancy.
The defect is referred to as a “limb reduction” because a limb is reduced from its normal size or is missing. A population–based study of the association of one class of such defects, reduction limb defects (RLD), and maternal conditions and diseases was made in Helsinki (Aro, ).
The data were obtained from the Finnish Registry of Congenital Malformations, to which it is compulsory to report all malformations detected in the first year of life. Limb Defect. Limb defects caused by vascular disruption have a birth prevalence of peraccounting for 34% of all limb reduction defects (which occur with a prevalence rate of per ).
From: Smith's Recognizable Patterns of Human Deformation (Third Edition), Related terms: Hypoplasia; Mental Deficiency; Thalidomide; Mutation. The objectives of this study were to describe the birth prevalence of limb reduction defects (LRD) in Argentina, their clinical features, and to review the literature on this topic.
The data source was the National Network of Congenital Anomalies of Argentina, Author: Guillermo Alberto, Pablo Barbero, Rosa Liascovich, María Paz Bidondo, Boris Groisman.
The cause of congenital limb defects is unknown. However, risk factors that may increase the likelihood of a congenital limb defect include the following: Conditions, such as genetic abnormalities, growth restriction, mechanical forces, that affect the baby in the uterus during development.
Exposures by the mother to chemicals or viruses while. Congenital deformities of feet. Reduction defects of upper limb. Reduction defects of lower limb. Congenital malformations of the musculoskeletal system, not elsewhere classified.
The only limb deformity birth defect tracked by the CDC is one global condition category of “upper and lower limb reduction deficits”, although some states attempt to track birth anomalies with more specificity. 7 From this, the estimated national incidence of reduction deformities of upper limbs is live births.
Congenital limb malformations rank behind congenital heart disease as the most common birth defects observed in infants. 1 One in newborns has congenital malformation of the upper limb.
2 These malformations can occur as isolated malformations, in combination with another hand and/or foot, or as part of a syndrome. The etiology can be divided into environmental and genetic causes.

The aim of this book is to provide the clinicians concerned with the care of describing congenital limb defects that is essential for a correct diagnosis and classification and for monitoring the frequency and distribution of congenital anomalies in the population.
Limb Reduction Defects Definition: Absence or severe hypoplasia (meaning. Reduction defects may be disabling limb defects due to the failure of several elements to form properly.
Less disabling limb defects are polydactyly, defined as complete or partial supernumerary digits, and syndactyly, fusion of two or more digits. Disruptive events appear to be the most common cause of congenital limb defects (CLD). Severe congenital heart defect (e.g., truncus arteriosus) and pulmonary anomalies can be present.
MLRD; Congenital Microgastria Limb Reduction Complex. First described by Robert in A congenital limb defect is when an arm or leg doesn’t form normally as a baby grows in the uterus. The exact cause of a congenital limb defect is often not known.
Certain things may increase the chances of a child being born with such a defect. These include gene problems or exposure to some viruses or chemicals. A multivariate analysis of the risk indicators of reduction limb defects. Int J Epidemiol. Dec; 13 (4)– Polednak AP, Janerich DT.
Maternal factors in congenital limb-reduction defects. Teratology. Aug; 32 (1)– Källén B. A prospective study of some aetiological factors in limb reduction defects in Sweden. Congenital limb reduction defects were identified through the Birth Defects Surveillance System for the Collaborative Project–China, which was administered by the National Center for Maternal and Infant Health at Peking University Health Science Center (PUHSC).
16, 17 The system collects detailed data on infants and fetuses with external. Abstract. To ascertain whether parental involvement in agricultural work and residence in an agricultural setting are associated with the development of congenital limb reduction defects, we carried out a case-control study using California birth records from, and Congenital limb deficiencies have many causes and often occur as a component of various congenital syndromes.
Teratogenic agents (eg, thalidomide, vitamin A) are known causes of hypoplastic/absent most common cause of congenital limb amputations are soft-tissue and/or vascular disruption defects, such as amniotic band-related limb deficiency, in which loose strands of amnion entangle.
1. Introduction. Congenital limb defect (CLD) occurs when normal development of limb in the intrauterine period is affected and is the most common congenital anomaly after congenital heart defects.
1 In various studies, the prevalence of CLD varies from to 13 live births. 1, 2 Environmental and genetic factors have been believed to be involved in the development of CLD. We will be talking about congenital limb deficiencies also known as congenital limb reduction defects.
Learning Objectives. By the end of this presentation participants will be able to describe: Classification of limb deficiencies. Clinical features of limb deficiencies. The EUROCAT study of fetuses with different anomalies reported a prenatal detection rate for both upper and lower limb reduction defects of 34%.
In a more recent study, a higher prenatal detection rate was found for limb reduction defects with associated malformations (49%), if compared to isolated limb reduction defects (25%).
Various types of limb reduction defects existed in children, usually located to the arms and most commonly of transverse reduction type. The prevalence was lower at parity 2 than parity 1 but maternal age did not affect the rate.
An increased risk was seen after maternal smoking and after at least three years of unwanted childlessness.Limb reduction defects Of all congenital anomalies, limb reduction defects maintain a high profile with the public.
In the early s, high rates of limb reductions were associated with expectant mothers taking the drug thalidomide. As a result of this, congenital anomaly surveillance systems were established to try and prevent further such.Causes of Limb Defects. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that taking certain antidepressants while pregnant may increase the risk of certain congenital limb defects.
According to the authors of the study, the use of an antidepressant was linked to limb-reduction defects.
