Figure 5.71. Amniotic bands involving the fingers of an infant. Note the amputated fourth finger and the constriction involving the base of the third finger resulting in gangrene.

Figure 5.72. An intrauterine constriction band at the right wrist resulted in marked obstruction of circulation to the hand. Note that at the site of constriction a band has been removed, but because of the distal involvement of the circulation, the condition worsened and the infant eventually required amputation.
