Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita is a clinical finding that includes congenital contractures affecting 2 or more areas of the body and is a component of over 300 disorders. Treatments goals are joint mobilization, splinting for improved function and position, and therapy for improved strength. Limb deformities that restrict motion may be treated surgically with understanding of unique patient joint alignment, bone morphology, and muscle and ligament integrity required for adequate surgical planning. We discuss 3 cases in which advanced imaging techniques including CT, MRI and 3D model printing were used for improved understanding of complex patient anatomy and dysmorphology.
