Among its clinical manifestations, it may present pain and limitation of joint movement, heat, edema, and local flushing. In this case, the full leg plaster cast allowed the patient to walk, despite the ROM limitation.

Improvement of extension, abduction, and adduction of the right hip. After the aggression, he evolved with TBI and was bedridden due to a bilateral hip contracture Fig. Immediately after the manipulation, in the operation room, the right hip’s range of motion ROM was measured: Thus, surgical excision must be carefully and individually considered and reserved for fully matured HO cases in patients with severe functional joint impairment.

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.

Treatment is based on resection of the ossification, with adjuvant measures such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, bisphosphonate, radiotherapy, and physical therapy.

It should only be performed in cases with hip movement restrictions, in order to release the aparelbos joints and entrapped nerves. Bisphosphonates can be used prophylactically to gdssados recurrence of surgically excised heterotopic bones. Rev Col Bras Cir.

Hip ROM improvement was observed in general and mainly in flexion, abduction, and internal rotation aoarelhos Figs.


Risk factors of heterotopic ossification in traumatic spinal cord injury. Treatment through hip manipulation associated with a plaster cast showed excellent results. Still, the best treatment is prevention. Appearance 2 years after treatment. Two years after the manipulation, the following right hip ROM values were registered: Apraelhos, surgery should be performed months after the end of the active stage of the injury.

HO presents with elevated serum alkaline phosphatase AP levels, and a transient decrease in serum calcium levels preceding the first event. On physical examination, he was in good general condition and was afebrile.

After 2 weeks, the patient apafelhos to the outpatient clinic to change the cast; and had no complaints. Furthermore, resection can cause excessive bleeding particularly in the femurand lead to increased morbidity and mortality, and if it is performed before bone maturity, there are high chances of relapse. 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 aparekhos limbs, with risk of complications and relapses.

Gessacos initial clinical manifestations of HO include pain and limitation of joint movement, heat, edema, local flushing, and, in some cases, moderate fever and severe spasticity.

Treatment of heterotopic ossification of the hip with use of a plaster cast: case report

aparehlos Heterotopic ossification HO is a process of abnormal osteogenesis in non-skeletal tissues, due to an initial metaplastic and inflammatory process, through bone neoformation in soft tissues; it is not considered a neoplasia. 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.

The right and left hips presented, respectively, flexion: Shortly after its gessxdos, the patient began walking with crutches for short distances and later, after several physical therapy sessions, without crutches. A wedge was made in the cast 5 days later, and the patient was discharged on July 17, A clinical perspective on common forms of acquired heterotopic ossification.

Patient 2 years after treatment, now able to walk. 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.

Increased AP is also observed in the presence of fractures and liver diseases. This pathology usually has a benign course, but it can cause a reduction in the range of joint movement and hamper the rehabilitation process. It may involve one or more joints in the same patient; in this case, the involvement is usually bilateral.

Naproxen in prevention of heterotopic ossification after total hip replacement. Any treatment option that improves the quality of life of the patient mitigates the negative impact of this disease.

The cast was used for 9 months. The diagnosis is made through conventional radiography.

In some cases, it can present moderate fever, severe spasticity, and even ankylosis in more advanced stages of the disease. It usually occurs in the large joints. Computed tomography CT can also be used. Exercises are recommended to maintain joint mobility.
