What are the treatment options constriction ring syndrome?

Your child will receive individualized treatment decided upon by his doctor.

   •   If your child has shallow, incomplete constriction rings, he may be treated
       with a simple day surgical procedure.
   •   If your child has deep constriction rings, one or more surgeries may be
       required to improve the appearance and function of the affected hand.

Surgery is usually performed after your child has had time to grow (when he's 6 months to 1 year old), though deep constriction rings that restrict blood flow must be treated immediately.

What's my child's long-term outlook?

Despite the differences in appearance, affected hands and fingers generally have excellent long-term function.

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.”
