That is, remaining osteoblastic cells would be responsible for recurrence, similarly to what is observed in cases of incomplete neoplasia resection. It should only be performed in cases with hip movement restrictions, in order to release the ankylosed joints and entrapped nerves. It may involve one or more joints in the same patient; in this case, the involvement is usually bilateral.

The etiology of HO is still uncertain. After 2 weeks, the patient returned to the outpatient clinic to change the cast; and had no gesssdos. Treatment of heterotopic ossification of the hip with use of a plaster apaarelhos A clinical perspective on common forms of acquired heterotopic ossification.

On physical examination, he was in good general condition and was afebrile. It is believed that recurrence is associated with the presence of osteoblastic activity at the HO site at the time of resection. Still, the best treatment is prevention. Clin Orthop Relat Res. In patients with spinal cord injury, early HO diagnosis is of utmost importance so that adequate treatment can be initiated and the chance of progression to ankylosis of the joint reduced.

Exercises are apareluos to maintain joint mobility. The objective of this report is to describe a case of heterotopic ossification in the hip after traumatic brain injury, presenting the clinical manifestations and discussing the treatment instituted with a long leg plaster cast.

Treatment through hip manipulation associated with a plaster cast showed excellent results. Shortly after its removal, the patient began walking with crutches for short distances and later, after several physical therapy sessions, without crutches. This pathology usually has a benign course, but it can cause a reduction in the range of joint movement and hamper the rehabilitation process. Hip contracture before treatment, more significant on the right; the hip is in flexion, abduction, and external rotation.


Gesssados is important to note that HO treatment is often conservative, provided that differential diagnoses have been definitively ruled out deep vein thrombosis, osteosarcoma, and septic arthritis, among others. Heterotopic ossification can be defined as the formation of bone in tissues that have no ossification properties, such as in muscles and connective tissue of a periarticular region, without invasion of the joint capsule.

Due to the high rates of recurrence with resection surgery, the authors chose to manipulate the right hip joint under anesthesia, placing a full leg plaster cast on the right lower limb on July 10,without any complications. Computed tomography CT can also be used.

In this case, the full leg plaster cast allowed the patient to walk, despite the ROM limitation. Hip ROM improvement was observed in general and mainly in flexion, abduction, and internal rotation movements Figs. A wedge was made in the cast 5 days later, and the patient was discharged on July 17, None of these methods currently have a precise recommendation regarding dose, quantity, or well-established protocols.

Rehabilitation medicine plays an important role in approaching these patients by addressing the symptoms and improving the function of the affected body areas, allowing family, social, and occupational reintegration of these patients. Among its clinical manifestations, it may present pain and limitation of joint movement, heat, edema, and local flushing.

Appearance 2 years after treatment. The patient was able to improve the movements of extension, abduction, and adduction of the right hip, which allowed gait without the risks of resection surgery. A year-old male patient was treated in at the orthopedic outpatient clinic of a public university hospital, complaining of pain and progressive limitation of movement apareohos the hips, as well aparelhs loss of right lower limb RLL muscle strength after suffering physical aggression approximately 8 months earlier.

Thus, surgery should be performed months after the end of the active stage of the injury. The treatment of HO is often conservative and prevention is the most appropriate conduct; however, surgical intervention may be necessary. An anteroposterior view radiograph of the hip showed areas of periarticular hip ossification, bilaterally, and the diagnosis of HO was made Fig. The role of radiotherapy for prevention of heterotopic ossification after major hip surgery. Two years after the manipulation, the following right hip ROM values were registered: The diagnosis is made through conventional radiography.

Risk factors of heterotopic ossification in traumatic spinal cord injury. Leite NM, Aparelgos F. Surgical resection often leads to increased aggression and, consequently, to new areas of tissue ossification. Patient 2 years after treatment, now able to walk. The cast was used for 9 months. After the aggression, he evolved with TBI and was bedridden due to a bilateral hip contracture Fig.


Naproxen in prevention of heterotopic ossification after total hip replacement. Rev Col Bras Cir. It usually occurs in the large joints. Immediately after the manipulation, in the operation room, the right hip’s range of motion ROM was measured: Any treatment option that improves the quality of life of the patient mitigates the negative impact of this disease.

Bisphosphonates can be gexsados prophylactically to prevent recurrence of surgically excised heterotopic bones. Improvement of extension, abduction, and adduction of the right hip.

The right and left hips aparelhoos, respectively, flexion: However, surgical HO resection is usually not indicated for patients classified as Brooker grade I and II, and sometimes as grade III lesions, because of the low functional impact since they do not present active movement of the lower limbs, with risk of complications and relapses. The clinical picture of the patient enhanced, as the functional aspect of the hip improved; despite the limitations, a previously bedridden patient was able to walk again Fig.

Thus, surgical excision must be carefully and individually considered and reserved gessadps fully matured HO cases in patients with severe functional joint impairment.
