Permanent fixation of the hip in primary positions, with limited passive or active motion at the hip joint. Locomotion is difficult and pain is sometimes present when the hip is in motion. It may be caused by trauma, infection, or poliomyelitis. (From Current Medical Information & Technology, 5th ed)
Implant Capsular Contracture
A methylxanthine naturally occurring in some beverages and also used as a pharmacological agent. Caffeine's most notable pharmacological effect is as a central nervous system stimulant, increasing alertness and producing agitation. It also relaxes SMOOTH MUSCLE, stimulates CARDIAC MUSCLE, stimulates DIURESIS, and appears to be useful in the treatment of some types of headache. Several cellular actions of caffeine have been observed, but it is not entirely clear how each contributes to its pharmacological profile. Among the most important are inhibition of cyclic nucleotide PHOSPHODIESTERASES, antagonism of ADENOSINE RECEPTORS, and modulation of intracellular calcium handling.

A basic element found in nearly all organized tissues. It is a member of the alkaline earth family of metals with the atomic symbol Ca, atomic number 20, and atomic weight 40. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and combines with phosphorus to form calcium phosphate in the bones and teeth. It is essential for the normal functioning of nerves and muscles and plays a role in blood coagulation (as factor IV) and in many enzymatic processes.
An element in the alkali group of metals with an atomic symbol K, atomic number 19, and atomic weight 39.10. It is the chief cation in the intracellular fluid of muscle and other cells. Potassium ion is a strong electrolyte that plays a significant role in the regulation of fluid volume and maintenance of the WATER-ELECTROLYTE BALANCE.
Brachial Plexus Neuropathies
Diseases of the cervical (and first thoracic) roots, nerve trunks, cords, and peripheral nerve components of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS. Clinical manifestations include regional pain, PARESTHESIA; MUSCLE WEAKNESS, and decreased sensation (HYPESTHESIA) in the upper extremity. These disorders may be associated with trauma (including BIRTH INJURIES); THORACIC OUTLET SYNDROME; NEOPLASMS; NEURITIS; RADIOTHERAPY; and other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1351-2)
A nonflammable, halogenated, hydrocarbon anesthetic that provides relatively rapid induction with little or no excitement. Analgesia may not be adequate. NITROUS OXIDE is often given concomitantly. Because halothane may not produce sufficient muscle relaxation, supplemental neuromuscular blocking agents may be required. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p178)
A quaternary skeletal muscle relaxant usually used in the form of its bromide, chloride, or iodide. It is a depolarizing relaxant, acting in about 30 seconds and with a duration of effect averaging three to five minutes. Succinylcholine is used in surgical, anesthetic, and other procedures in which a brief period of muscle relaxation is called for.
Dressings made of fiberglass, plastic, or bandage impregnated with plaster of paris used for immobilization of various parts of the body in cases of fractures, dislocations, and infected wounds. In comparison with plaster casts, casts made of fiberglass or plastic are lightweight, radiolucent, able to withstand moisture, and less rigid.
Continuous involuntary sustained muscle contraction which is often a manifestation of BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES. When an affected muscle is passively stretched, the degree of resistance remains constant regardless of the rate at which the muscle is stretched. This feature helps to distinguish rigidity from MUSCLE SPASTICITY. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p73)
The voltage differences across a membrane. For cellular membranes they are computed by subtracting the voltage measured outside the membrane from the voltage measured inside the membrane. They result from differences of inside versus outside concentration of potassium, sodium, chloride, and other ions across cells' or ORGANELLES membranes. For excitable cells, the resting membrane potentials range between -30 and -100 millivolts. Physical, chemical, or electrical stimuli can make a membrane potential more negative (hyperpolarization), or less negative (depolarization).
Congenital, or rarely acquired, herniation of meningeal and spinal cord tissue through a bony defect in the vertebral column. The majority of these defects occur in the lumbosacral region. Clinical features include PARAPLEGIA, loss of sensation in the lower body, and incontinence. This condition may be associated with the ARNOLD-CHIARI MALFORMATION and HYDROCEPHALUS. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, pp35-6)
The clinical manifestations and pathomechanics of contracture of the extensor mechanism of the knee. (1/325)Experience with thirty-eight Asian children and adolescents who presented with either stiffness of the knee, genu recurvatum, habitual dislocation of the patella or congenital lateral dislocation of the patella showed that all those disorders were manifestations of contracture of the extensor mechanism, which fell into two groups according to the components involved. In Group I the main components affected were in the midline of the limb, namely rectus femoris and vastus intermedius; these patients presented with varying degrees of stiffness of the knee, or worse, with genu recurvatum. In Group II the main components involved were lateral to the midline of the limb, namely vastus lateralis and the ilio-tibial band; these patients presented with habitual dislocation of the patella, or worse, congenital lateral dislocation of the patella. In both groups untreated patients developed secondary adaptive changes such as subluxation of the tibia or marked genu valgum which made operative procedures more formidable and less effective. Release of the contracture should therefore be performed as early as possible. (+info)
Plasma from human mothers of fetuses with severe arthrogryposis multiplex congenita causes deformities in mice. (2/325)Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) is characterized by fixed joint contractures and other deformities, sometimes resulting in fetal death. The cause is unknown in most cases, but some women with fetuses affected by severe AMC have serum antibodies that inhibit fetal acetylcholine receptor (AChR) function, and antibodies to fetal antigens might play a pathogenic role in other congenital disorders. To investigate this possibility, we have established a model by injecting pregnant mice with plasma from four anti-AChR antibody-positive women whose fetuses had severe AMC. We found that human antibodies can be transferred efficiently to the mouse fetus during the last few days of fetal life. Many of the fetuses of dams injected with AMC maternal plasmas or Ig were stillborn and showed fixed joints and other deformities. Moreover, similar changes were found in mice after injection of a serum from one anti-AChR antibody-negative mother who had had four AMC fetuses. Thus, we have confirmed the role of maternal antibodies in cases of AMC associated with maternal anti-AChR, and we have demonstrated the existence of pathogenic maternal factors in one other case. Importantly, this approach can be used to look at the effects of other maternal human antibodies on development of the fetus. (+info)
Dominant hereditary inclusion-body myopathy gene (IBM3) maps to chromosome region 17p13.1. (3/325)We recently described an autosomal dominant inclusion-body myopathy characterized by congenital joint contractures, external ophthalmoplegia, and predominantly proximal muscle weakness. A whole-genome scan, performed with 161 polymorphic markers and with DNA from 40 members of one family, indicated strong linkage for markers on chromosome 17p. After analyses with additional markers in the region and with DNA from eight additional family members, a maximum LOD score (Zmax) was detected for marker D17S1303 (Zmax=7.38; recombination fraction (theta)=0). Haplotype analyses showed that the locus (Genome Database locus name: IBM3) is flanked distally by marker D17S945 and proximally by marker D17S969. The positions of cytogenetically localized flanking markers suggest that the location of the IBM3 gene is in chromosome region 17p13.1. Radiation hybrid mapping showed that IBM3 is located in a 2-Mb chromosomal region and that the myosin heavy-chain (MHC) gene cluster, consisting of at least six genes, co-localizes to the same region. This localization raises the possibility that one of the MHC genes clustered in this region may be involved in this disorder. (+info)
Bethlem myopathy: a slowly progressive congenital muscular dystrophy with contractures. (4/325)Bethlem myopathy is an early-onset benign autosomal dominant myopathy with contractures caused by mutations in collagen type VI genes. It has been reported that onset occurs in early childhood. We investigated the natural course of Bethlem myopathy in five previously published kindreds and two novel pedigrees, with particular attention to the mode of onset in 23 children and the progression of weakness in 36 adult patients. Our analysis shows that nearly all children exhibit weakness or contractures during the first 2 years of life. Early features include diminished foetal movements, neonatal hypotonia and congenital contractures which are of a dynamic nature during childhood. The course of Bethlem myopathy in adult patients is less benign than previously thought. Due to slow but ongoing progression, more than two-thirds of patients over 50 years of age use a wheelchair.

The medial approach for operative release of post-traumatic contracture of the elbow. (6/325)We treated post-traumatic contracture of the elbow in 13 consecutive patients (14 elbows) by operative release. Through a single medial approach, the posterior oblique bundle of the medial collateral ligament was resected, followed by posterior and anterior capsulectomies. An additional lateral release through a separate incision was required in only four elbows. The results were assessed at a mean interval of 57 months after operation. Before surgery active extension lacked 43 degrees which improved to 17 degrees after operation. Active flexion before operation was 89 degrees, which improved to 127 degrees. The mean arc of movement increased from 46 degrees to 110 degrees. All 14 elbows showed scarring of the posterior oblique bundle of the medial collateral ligament. Neither the interval from injury to operative release nor the age of the patient affected the results. A medial approach is useful to reveal and excise the pathological changes in the medial collateral ligament. It is a safe and effective route through which to correct post-traumatic contracture of the elbow. (+info)
The effectiveness of turnbuckle splinting for elbow contractures. (7/325)We have treated 22 patients with an elbow contracture using a static progressive turnbuckle splint for a mean of 4.5 +/- 1.8 months. All had failed to improve with supervised physiotherapy and splinting. The mean range of flexion before splintage was from 32 +/- 10 degrees to 108 +/- 19 degrees and afterwards from 26 + 10 (p = 0.02) to 127 +/- 12 degrees (p = 0.0001). A total of 11 patients gained a 'functional arc of movement,' defined as at least 30 degrees to 130 degrees. In eight patients movement improved with turnbuckle splinting, but the functional arc was not achieved. Six of these were satisfied and did not wish to proceed with surgical treatment and two had release of the elbow contracture. In three patients movement did not improve with the use of the turnbuckle splint and one subsequently had surgical treatment. Our findings have shown that turnbuckle splinting is a safe and effective treatment which should be considered in patients whose established elbow contractures have failed to respond to conventional physiotherapy.

A case of congenital inverse Duane's retraction syndrome. (8/325)Inverse Duane's retraction syndrome is very uncommon. Congenital cases are even more unusual. A 6-year-old girl with convergent squint along with severe restriction on abduction is described. On attempted abduction, a narrowing of the palpebral fissure, upshoot and retraction of the eyeball were observed. Brain and orbit MRI demonstrated no intracranial or intraorbital mass, fracture, or entrapment of the medial rectus. Forced duction test was strongly positive. The primary lesion was found to be a tight medial rectus with shortening and soft tissue contracture. Surgical tenotomy of the medial rectus led to successful postoperative motility, but some limitation at full adduction and abduction persisted. This is a case reported with congenital medial rectus shortening, suggesting that this condition may be one of the etiologies of the rare inverse Duane's retraction syndrome. (+info)

A Clinical Study of Allogeneic Human Dermal Fibroblasts for Remodeling Scar Contractures - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Restrictive scar contracture (a condition where tissue thickens and tightens, pulling the surrounding healthy skin toward the damaged area) due to a serious burn injury can result in long term aesthetic and physical consequences.. Skin contractures adjacent to a joint lead to joint deformities that severely restrict range of motion (ROM) of the affected joint. Skin contractures are also often accompanied by crippling levels of chronic pain resulting in a high level of dependency on pain medications. These isolated or combined factors can lead to a significant disruption in both social and professional life, leading to a marked impact on an individuals quality of life.. The current standard of care for restrictive scar contracture involves the surgical excision of the contracture itself and/ or skin grafting. These standard therapies require extensive and often repeated surgeries. Physicians are continually seeking less invasive therapies to treat patients with burn ...
Pronation-Supination Motion Is Altered in a Rat Model of Post-Traumatic Elbow Contracture | Journal of Biomechanical...
The elbow joint is highly susceptible to joint contracture, and treating elbow contracture is a challenging clinical problem. Previously, we established an animal model to study elbow contracture that exhibited features similar to the human condition including persistent decreased range of motion (ROM) in flexion-extension and increased capsule thickness/adhesions. The objective of this study was to mechanically quantify pronation-supination in different injury models to determine if significant differences compared to control or contralateral persist long-term in our animal elbow contracture model. After surgically inducing soft tissue damage in the elbow, Injury I (anterior capsulotomy) and Injury II (anterior capsulotomy with lateral collateral ligament transection), limbs were immobilized for 6 weeks (immobilization (IM)). Animals were evaluated after the IM period or following an additional 6 weeks of free mobilization (FM). Total ROM for pronation-supination was significantly decreased ...

Varying surgical techniques, patient groups and results have been described regards the surgical treatment of post traumatic flexion contracture of the elbow. We present our experience using the limited lateral approach on patients with carefully defined contracture types.Surgical release of post-traumatic flexion contracture of the elbow was performed in 23 patients via a limited lateral approach. All patients had an established flexion contracture with significant functional deficit. Contracture types were classified as either extrinsic if the contracture was not associated with damage to the joint surface or as intrinsic if it was.Overall, the mean pre-operative deformity was 55 degrees (95%CI 48-61) which was corrected at the time of surgery to 17 degrees (95%CI 12-22). At short-term follow-up (7.5 months) the mean residual deformity was 25 degrees (95%CI 19-30) and at medium-term follow-up (43 months) it was 32 degrees (95%CI 25-39). This deformity correction was significant (p | 0.01). One patient

What is a muscle contracture? - NatureWord
4) Limited use of the affected area.. Muscle contractures are, by definition, painful. When they occur, we often feel our muscles and joints stiff and every attempt at a normal range of movement is painful. Depending on the severity of the contracture and how we decide to manage it, pain may be mild and allow us to do everything we did before the contracture or severe and prevent us from lifting objects, sitting or sleeping in a certain position, adopting a certain posture for more than a few minutes etc.. Pain can go and reoccur or be present throughout the entire time. If we do not manage and treat the condition accordingly from the beginning, the pain can have us resist movement almost completely, which encourages muscle atrophy, with muscles becoming weaker. Pain can seem localized, as if it comes from a single point somewhere in a muscle or joint or feel as an extensive ache of an entire muscle or joint. The source of the pain may feel like a rigid point in a larger muscle and putting ...

Fibrillinopathy NGS panel | Connective Tissue Gene Tests
The fibrillinopathy panel is designed to detect mutations in genes that produce disorders that have similar, if not in at least some patients, identical phenotypes. These include: Marfan syndrome or Marfan like disorders caused by FBN1 mutations, congenital contractural arachnodactyly also known as Beals syndrome or arthrogryposis, distal, type 9, caused by mutations in FBN2, and homocystinuria caused by mutations in CBS.. Clicking on the individual genes listed below will link to a brief description of each disorder. Note: The presence or absence of ectopia lentis or the direction of lens dislocation has been used as a guide to clinically discriminate between these disorders. This practice seems to be controversial and probably should not be a major determinant to establish a final diagnosis.. Copy number variation (CNV) analysis of the fibrillinopathy genes is also offered as a panel. Additionally, CTGT offers a comprehensive test (both NGS and CNV panels) for these genes. Panel genes are also ...

Seventy per cent (70%) of participants had muscle weakness in one or more muscle groups. As muscle weakness, joint contractures were present at early stage of MS and the prevalence was associated with the progression of the disease.. ...
Rehabilitation | Richard Westons Myotonic Dystrophy Blog
The occurrence of contractures appears to be directly related to prolonged static positioning of the limb, and these contractures often develop soon after wheel-chair reliance (38,39). Several studies have shown that wheelchair reliance and lack of lower extremity weight bearing contribute to the rapid acceleration of contractures (2,38). Upper extremity contractures may occur in ambulatory patients with focal, proximal atrophy, particularly at the shoulder girdle (Figure 2). This may be worsened by subluxation. Slings may be helpful to support the joint but do not prevent contracture formation or subluxation. Gentle static stretching and splinting may slow the progression contractures but this has not been well studied. Although orthopedic contracture release allows a patient to be braced and may prolong ambulation, it appears that weakness is the major factor that inhibits ambulation, not joint contracture per se. In a randommed tral, Manzur and colleagues showed no benefit to early surgical ...

Since skin is bilaminate, it is logical that a bioengineered skin organ substitute should also be bilaminate. Integra consists of a temporary silicone epidermal substitute and a permanent dermal regeneration template made of collagen and the glycosaminoglycan, chondroitin-6-phosphate. Once applied to the wound, the dermal matrix is invaded with fibroblasts and becomes vascularized, integrating with the recipient bed and directing cellular activities. Once this dermal matrix is vascularized, the temporary silicone epidermis is removed and a thin split-thickness autograft is applied to complete the process. 1007/978-3-642-05070-1_8, © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2010 Diagnosis, Assessment, and Classification of Scar Contractures Assessment and Classification of Postburn Contractures Scar contractures are diagnosed by abnormal resting position of anatomical structures or movement disturbance of joints and other tissues. 2).

The main clinical features of this metaphyseal chondrodysplasia are severe growth retardation, predominantly lower extremity micromelia, knee flexion contractures, and severe brachydactyly. The radiologic appearance of the knees is considered specific, with the distal femoral and the proximal tibial epiphyses embedding themselves in their corresponding metaphyses, which results in the typical cup shape on x-ray. The name acroscyphodysplasia refers to this characteristic cup-shaped (scyphus = cup) anomaly. Premature epiphyseal-metaphyseal fusion and gross deformation of the femoral condyles can occur. The distal femoral metaphyses appear wedge-shaped. The femoral diaphyses are short and broad. Additional features include progressive bilateral coxae valgae, bowed and/or short, stubby tibiae with cone-shaped metaphyses and varus deformity of the tibiotalar joint. Overall, the upper extremities are much less affected with only mild deformation of the long bones. However, the shortening of the hand ...

36A: The Multiple-Limb-Deficient Child | O&P Virtual Library
After developing the skin flaps, the fascial contractures are released and tendons lengthened as necessary. This may be adequate to allow correction of the radial deviation, but in severe deformity it may be necessary to open the radial side of the wrist joint capsule. In this process care must be taken in the volar dissection to identify and protect the radially displaced median nerve. As the hand is deviated in an ulnar direction, care must be exercised to avoid stretching the nerve, which may, in fact, limit the extent of correction at this first stage. With the desired correction attained, the flaps of the Z-plasty are reversed and the wound closed.. The hand is positioned to avoid tension on skin sutures, and the correction is maintained in a plaster of paris dressing. Postoperative therapy emphasizes function and motion of the fingers. In some instances, especially in patients with acutely angulated radial abduction who require the function of the clubhand position, this procedure is ...

Do not forget about swallowing!. What are some effective methods to assess the condition and find out whether you deal with the muscular dystrophy or something else? One of the ways is to submit a sample of blood to check it for the level of enzymes in the injured groups of muscles. You may examine the blood for the genetic markers of the disease. Some doctors conduct an electromyography test to check the electrical activity. At least there is a muscle biopsy - give a sample of the damaged muscle to find out what is causing the discomfort!. ...

Contractures and increase in internal longitudianl resistance of cow ventricular muscle induced by hypoxia. | Circulation...
This study was performed to determine whether hypoxia in glucose-free solutions can increase the electrical resistance of intercellular junctions in ventricular muscle. Internal longitudinal resistance (Ri), mechanical tension, and transmembrane action potentials were measured simultaneously in cow ventricular trabeculae. The mean control value of Ri was 265 +/- 38 omegacm (mean +/- SE) at 34 degrees C. After 1 hour of hypoxia in glucose-free Tyrodes solution, it had increased by 300 +/- 41% (n = 11, P less than 0.001). The rise in Ri was closely related to the increase in resting tension (contracture). These effects were more pronounced during a second exposure to hypoxia and were potentiated by application of epinephrine, by increasing extracellular calcium concentration, and by increasing frequency of stimulation. Addition of glucose (50 mM) provided some protection against hypoxia. It is inferred that the increase in Ri is entirely due to the increase in the resistance of intercellular ...

Pyruvate-dependent preconditioning and cardioprotection in murine myocardium
1. Whether pyruvate inhibits or can actually initiate myocardial preconditioning is unclear and whether pyruvate provides protection via its action as a cosubstrate with glucose or via alternative mechanisms also remains controversial. We examined effects of a high concentration of pyruvate (10 mmol/L) alone or with 15 mmol/L glucose in mouse hearts subjected to 20 min ischaemia and 30 min reperfusion. 2. Provision of 10 mmol/L pyruvate alone or as a cosubstrate markedly reduced ischaemic contracture and enhanced postischaemic recovery. Time to contracture was increased from approximately 3 min to over 8 min, peak contracture was reduced from 90 mmHg to less than 60 mmHg and postischaemic pressure development was also improved. Effects on contracture were independent of the presence of pyruvate during ischaemia and improved postischaemic recovery was evident with pre-ischaemic pyruvate perfusion. 3. Cardioprotection did not require the presence of pyruvate during ischaemia or reperfusion and ...

Analysis of factors that affect the precision of the radiographic lateral femoral bowing angle using a three-dimensional...
Precise measurement of lateral femoral bowing is important to achieve postoperative lower limb alignment. We aimed to investigate factors that affect the precision of the radiographic lateral femoral bowing (RLFB) angle using three-dimensional (3D) models and whether the angle affects surgery design. Forty femurs in total were divided into two groups based on their preoperative RLFB angle. The flexion contracture angle, preoperative and postoperative RLFB angles, and intersection angle between the mechanical and anatomical axes were compared. The angle between the arc and sagittal planes, varus and valgus angles, and intersection angle between the mechanical and anatomical axes were measured on a 3D model. There was no significant between-group difference in 3D model measurements of the angle between the arc and sagittal planes (p = 0.327). There was no significant difference between the mechanical and anatomical axes measured by both imaging modalities (p | 0.258). When the RLFB was |5°, the flexion
ES in Orthopaedic Disability | International FES Society
Management Of Stiffness And Joint Contractures After Immobilization. ES has multiple benefits in the rehabilitation of stiff joints. ES can be used to augment exerciseso that the patient can contract their muscles and hold the contraction at the end of the available joint range. ES will modulate discomfort or pain during the early mobilization period. And, ES can enhance the force production, work capability and endurance of the stimulated muscles. All of these benefits can be realized by the use of an inexpensive stimulator and a home exercise program.. Management Of Muscle Performance. Gentle ES of muscle may be employed to maintain muscle contractility during periods of immobilization when the effect of muscle contraction would not interfere with healing. Although ES during immobilization will not prevent shrinkage or atrophy of muscle, it will minimize the loss and maintain the metabolic capability of muscle to speed recovery when it is safe to resume movement and exercise.. When the ...

- Despite continued improvements in breast implant design over the past five decades, capsular contracture still remains a significant problem, with reported rates between 15% and 45% (Headon, Kasem et al. (aserf.org)
- Capsular contracture begins as an inflammatory foreign body response after implantation, and while the ensuing fibrotic reaction can help to maintain position of the implant, an excessive response can result in pain and deformity of the breast. (aserf.org)
- Several studies have also correlated fibroblast density and cellular alignment with capsular contracture, and more recent reports have shown a functional difference in fibroblasts, with dysregulation of several inflammatory and fibrotic genes noted when comparing fibroblasts derived from non-contracted and contracted breast implant capsules (Kyle and Bayat 2015).
