Therefore, in this short report we present guidelines to recommend rational selection criteria for reconstructive surgery to correct claw hand
and thumb deformities in leprosy.
9,10) In our study, claw hand
was the commonest seen in 69 (78%) patients followed by foot drop in 13 (15%) patients and lagophthalmos in 6 (7%) patients.
All patients less than 14 years of age who underwent claw hand
correction during the period 2007 to 2012 have been included in this study.
Her singing is pretty average but her tics and habits are enough to drive you insane, particularly that ridiculous claw hand
Ulnar, radial cutaneous, lateral popliteal and sural nerves were thickened along with ulnar claw hand
Six months later, the patient underwent a four-tailed tendon transfer operation to correct his claw hand
In addition to the general morbidity produced by the reactions of both types the more serious effect was the progression of mobile claw hand
to fixed claw hand
in five patients.
What was not generally known was that the Ex-leprosy Patients Association had given him the money to travel to India to learn more of the techniques of tendon transfer for correction of claw hand
