How is constriction ring syndrome diagnosed?

Occasionally, constriction ring syndrome can be diagnosed before birth by prenatal ultrasound. However, the majority of cases are diagnosed at or shortly after birth by your child’s doctor.

X-rays of your child’s affected limb are also used to help assess how deep and tight the band is.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
