Amniotic Band Syndrome


Amniotic Band Syndrome (ABS) occurs within the womb, when fibrous strands appear in the amniotic sac and interfere with normal fetal development by entangling some part of the baby’s body.

When these amniotic bands restrict blood flow to limbs or digits, they can cause deformities such as clubfoot, missing toes, or complete amputations. These bands can also constrict the umbilical cord, leading to a miscarriage
