The article discusses the various classification schemes within the International Federation of Societies for Surgery of the Hand's (IFSSH) classification of congenital deformities of the hand and upper extremities. It also presents new information concerning the underlying etiology of the different condition. The authors proposed a modification to the IFSSH classification that is based on new concepts of developmental biology.
