BACKGROUND Thumb duplication, also called radial or preaxial polydactyly, is classified as an alteration of the radio-ulnar axis in the formation and differentiation of the hand plate, according to the Oberg, Manske and Tonkin classification. OBJECTIVE Radial polydactyly is a common upper limb malformation. This paper is a comprehensive analysis of radial polydactyly, its genetic explanation, classification, surgical techniques, functional results, as well as present and future scientific…

Clinical Genetics of Polydactyly: An Updated Review

Clinical, genetic and molecular characterization of the polydactyly types has been presented including the recent genes and loci identified for non-syndromic polydACTyly.

Modified method for reconstruction of thumb abduction function in children undergoing surgical treatment of thumb duplication

Reconstruction of the abduction function using the anchor technique is effective in children undergoing surgical treatment for Wassel type III to VII thumb duplication and it may be superior to the conventional technique.

[Soft tissue balance technique by flexor pollicis longus tendon transfer for Wassel Ⅳ-D thumb duplication in children].

The soft tissue balance technique by FPL tendon trasfer can effectively correct the alignment of the Wassel Ⅳ-D thumb duplication in children, and maintain the correction effect effectively, but further follow-up and comprehensive evaluation are needed to investigate the long-term effectiveness.

Epidemiological statistics of congenital thumb duplication in the Chinese population

There were no significant differences in gender distribution or the distribution of left and right polydactyly between the two groups, but the distribution in bilateral polydACTyly was significantly different.

Large preaxial polydactyly with intraepidermal bulla: an unusual form of polydactyly

Polydactyly is a condition in which the supernumerary digits or duplications of digital parts manifest either as an integral part or in association with ∼300 well-defined syndromes. Polydactyly is
