Figure A depicts a child with a congenital abnormality. Which of the following is true regarding this condition?
Circumferential trunk involvement is more common than distal extremities involvement
Risk factors include late gestation (>44 weeks) and high birth weight (>3500g)
Incomplete circumferential bands not directly interfering with lymphatic circulation should be resected
There is a strong correlation with anterolateral tibial bowing
Complete circumferential bands that interfere with lymphatic drainage can be treated with band excision and z-plasty.
