Abstract

Objective: Polydactyly is one of the most common congenital anomalies of the hand and foot, and was first recorded in the hand in 1670. The extra digit rarely contains bone, and instead usually presents as a small piece of soft tissue. Polydactyly has been reported to occur three times more often than syndactyly. This study evaluated the treatment approaches to polydactyly, and the results of these treatments were assessed using clinical data.
