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.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
