Title: Descriptive epidemiology of limb reduction deformities in Hawaii, 1986-2000.
Authors: Forrester, Mathias B.

Abstract: The relationship between limb reduction deformities and clinical and demographic factors in Hawaii during 1986-2000 were examined using population-based birth defects program data. The limb defect rate was highest with maternal age less than 20 years, and the defect was more common among males. Among racial/ethnic groups, Pacific Islanders and Filipinos had higher rates than whites and Far East Asians.
