How Is Congenital Short Finger Treated?

How Is Congenital Short Finger Treated?Today, the most ideal treatment for congenital short finger is the insertion of a device called an external fixator. This device is attached to the bone and the bone is cut, then the patient rotates and lengthens it by 1 mm every day as shown to him. This is called gradual lengthening. The patient carries this external fixator device on his foot for an average of 1.5 months and then removes it. Eventually, the required dye reaches the bone gradually. Since it may not be very easy to carry the device, the other method is acute correction in patients who do not prefer it. Acute correction is made by cutting the bone and taking a certain length of bone from the patient’s hip and putting it in between. This is a method without carrying an external device, but it is a method with a higher complication rate than the other method.
