Represents the failure of the normal separation of the digital rays from one another. When there is a failure of the normal interdigital programmed cell death, interdigital webbing will persist as syndactyly (Fig. 2-2). cls July 15, 2005 22:7 Chapter 2 / Congenital Deformities 19 Polydactyly Polydactyly represents an inappropriate definition of digital rays, reflecting an abnormality in the interaction between limb bud ectoderm and mesoderm. Thumb polydactyly may be related to prolonged ectodermal cells in the tip of the limb bud that induce an abnormal notch in the radial mesenchymal tissue.

The thumb and first web has been advocated due to the fact that most surgeries for this condition involved the thumb and first web (Table 2-7). Treatment ■ Principles of treatment include splinting to correct any significant ulnar deviation of the wrist and early excision of the fibrous anlage of the ulna if it is not possible to correct the ulnar deformity of the wrist. ■ The radial head may be excised in those patients with minimal forearm rotation and elbow movement. ■ Creation of a one-bone forearm using the proximal ulna and the distal radius may be indicated.

The three critical regions of the limb bud that signal or control outgrowth and pattern formation are the AER, the dorsal ectoderm, and the zone of polarizing activity (ZPA). The dorsal ectoderm controls palmar to dorsal differentiation, which results in distinctly different flexor and extensor surfaces. The anteroposterior (AP) interactions are controlled by a cluster of mesenchymal cells along the postaxial border of the limb bud, the zone of polarizing activity (ZPA). The morphogens elaborated within the ZPA diffuse and create a gradient that helps control differentiation in the AP plane.
