Described is the use of bilateral patellar tendon-bearing Symes-type prostheses in a severe case of Freeman-Sheldon syndrome (FSS) in a 21-year-old woman presenting with uncorrectable equinovarus and multiple surgical sequela of the lower extremities. FSS is considered a type of myopathic distal arthrogryposis; diagnosis requires the following: microstomia,(More)
Described are previously unreported features presenting in a case of Freeman-Sheldon syndrome (FSS); these apparently unreported features may substantively inform current therapy and further research. While considered to be primarily a craniofacial syndrome, FSS is officially described as a myopathic distal arthrogryposis. Clinical diagnosis requires(More)
The authors describe the surgical approach, findings, and 8-year follow-up in a 29-year-old woman, with severe Freeman-Sheldon syndrome, presenting with congenital blepharophimosis of both upper eyelids resulting in near-complete functional visual obstruction. To avoid possible Freeman-Sheldon syndrome-associated complications of malignant hyperthermia,(More)
We describe two proof-of-concept trials of delayed non-operative therapy of multiple hand and wrist contractures in a woman with a severe expression of Freeman-Sheldon syndrome (FSS), at ages 24 and 28 years. Having presented as an infant to a university referral centre, passive correction was not accompanied by strengthening exercises, and correction was(More)
Pompe disease, or glycogen storage disease type II (GSD2), an autosomal recessive disease first described by Joannes Cassianus Pompe (1901-1945), causes deficient activity of acid α-glucosidase (GAA) enzyme. GAA catalyses α 1,4 and α 1,6 glucosidic linkages in lysosomes; destruction of these linkages permits glycogen to be separated into glucose and later(More)
BACKGROUND Freeman-Sheldon and Sheldon-Hall syndromes (FSS and SHS) and distal arthrogryposis types 1 and 3 (DA1 and DA3) are rare, often confused, congenital syndromes. Few studies exist. With reported diagnosis unreliable, it would be scientifically inappropriate to consider articles describing FSS, SHS, DA1, or DA3, unless diagnoses were independently(More)
