Amniotic Band Syndrome Definition and Symptoms
Amniotic band syndrome is a condition where strands of the amniotic sac get tangled and wrapped around limbs, digits, or other parts of the fetus. This can cause many severe problems depending on where they are located and how tightly they are wrapped. If it is wrapped too tightly limbs can be disfigured or even completely amputated. Amniotic band syndrome is not genetic, it is completely random and very rare.
