Amniotic Band Syndrome

OK now i have time to find it out...

this is what happened to Fahry

Amniotic band syndrome is a rare condition caused by strands of the amniotic sac that separate and entangle digits, limbs, or other parts of the fetus. This constriction can cause a variety of problems depending on where strands are located and how tightly they are wrapped.

It is believed that amniotic band syndrome occurs when the inner membrane (amnion) ruptures, or tears, without injury to the outer membrane (chorion). The developing fetus is still floating in fluid but is then exposed to the floating tissue (bands) from the ruptured amnion. This floating tissue can become entangled around the fetus.

The cause of amnion tearing is uncertain and is consider a chance event. It does not appear to be genetic or hereditary, so the likelihood of it occurring in another pregnancy is remote.

what shown in the picture above is exactly what happened to Fahry. but with the other hand and foot also affected.

It is itself part of the pregnancy, formed early on from cells descended from the original fertilized egg.

kesiannya Fahry.. dalam perut Mami lagi dah rasa sakit. takpe..takpe... so skarang Fahry mesti dah imune dengan rasa sakit-sakit kan :) kuatnya Fahry ni! nanti bole la Mami buli kasi dera-dera sikit :D (adakah ini satu 'penghibur hati'?).

tapi rasa macam best pulak kan. RARE CONDITION --> bukan senang nak dapat ni. 1 in 10,000 live birth. kira kita dah masuk dalam statistik tu lah. huhuhu.

agaknya sebab tu Fahry nak kuar cepat-cepat, tak tahan dah kene jerut kat dalam tu kan. tapi Mami tengok memang kat jari-jari Fahry macam ada 'benang'. doktor try nak cabut but ia macam melekat je kat situ. could be itula dia band-nya kan?

syukur alhamdulillah ia cuma menjerut kaki-kaki & tangan-tangan Fahry je... kalau kena muka kan dah tak hensem... kalau kena cord ke leher ke...., oh tak sanggup Mami think about it.

more on amniotic band syndrome : with pictures.

so it's not because of:

- lack of nutrition.
- breastfeeding.
- prematurity makes the limbs couldn't develop (in fact IT IS THERE (the limbs) since 3-4 month of pregnancy).
- genetic (nobody in our family has it).
- kenan
- etc.
