4,116 Possible Causes for Contracture

  • Talipes Cavus

    It has demonstrated that adaptive ligamentous contractures and bone deformities occur rather early.[journals.lww.com] Pes cavus commonly features a varus (inverted) hindfoot, a plantarflexed position of the first metatarsal, an adducted forefoot, and dorsal contracture of the toes.[en.wikipedia.org] Intrinsic muscle develops contractures while the long extensor to the toes, recruited to assist in ankle dorsiflexion, causes cock-up or claw toe deformity.[physiotherapy-treatment.com]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    Abstract We report 5 cases (2 familial and 3 sporadic) who share a diagnosis of congenital muscular dystrophy (CMD) in association with short stature, proximal contractures[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] No objective worsening of contractures was noted on out-patient follow-up.[academic.oup.com] Congenital muscular dystrophy (CMD) comprises a heterogeneous group of disorders with muscle weakness, hypotonia and contractures present at birth.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Among the earliest features of this disorder are joint deformities called contractures.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] Surgical release of contractures. If contractures are severe, your doctor may recommend tendon release surgery.[web.archive.org] Contractures become noticeable in early childhood and most often involve the elbows, ankles, and neck.[web.archive.org]

  • Dupuytren Contracture

    Contractures causing flexion deformity. MCP joint contracture should be measured whilst applying passive extension to the PIP joint.[patient.info] Proposed Natural Treatments for Dupuytren's Contracture There are no well-documented natural treatments for Dupuytren's contracture.[web.archive.org] Once contracture develops, early referral is recommended.[patient.info]

  • Bladder Contracture

    BNC stands for "Bladder Neck Contracture" How to abbreviate Bladder Neck Contracture? Bladder Neck Contracture can be abbreviated as BNC What is BNC abbreviation?[allacronyms.com] Bladder contracture as a result of this treatment is rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract The results of caecocystoplasty for tuberculous bladder contracture in 30 patients over a 15-year period are presented. The operative mortality was 3.3%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Scar Contractures

    In fold's sheets of edge and medial contractures there is a trapeze-shaped surface deficit in length (cause of contracture) and a surface surplus in width which allows contracture[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subcutaneous pedicle flaps are effective for relatively wide contractures or quadratic contractures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In 28 contractures, rhomboid flaps alone were efficient to release the tension line (90.3%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    BACKGROUND: The population prevalence of multiple congenital contractures, many of which have either arthrogryposis multiplex congenita or amyoplasia congenita, ranges from[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nine children had quadrimelic contractures and two had bimelic contractures of the lower limbs (Table 1 ).[doi.org] Prenatal diagnosis is usually based on the detection of diminished fetal movements and joint contractures on ultrasound.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neurogenic Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    Muscle strength does not tend to worsen, however contractures can lead to worsening of function ability.[checkorphan.org] English neurogenic arthrogryposis multiplex congenita congenital joint contracture in two or more areas of the body arthrogryposis multiplex congenita AMC Guérin-Stern syndrome[wikidata.org] AMC is not a sui generis disease, but rather a descriptive term that signifies multiple congenital contractures.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Arthrogryposis-Renal Dysfunction-Cholestasis Syndrome

    The classical presentation of ARC includes congenital joint contractures, renal tubular dysfunction, and cholestasis.[unboundmedicine.com] […] dysfunction-cholestasis syndrome Overview Arthrogryposis-renal dysfunction-cholestasis syndrome (ARC) is a rare cause of cholestasis in infants and it is characterized by joint contractures[checkorphan.org] Multiple contractures of the lower limbs were present, including talipes equinovarus, flexion contractures of the knees, and dislocated hips.[adc.bmj.com]

  • Arthrogryposis due to Muscular Dystrophy

    AMC is not a sui generis disease, but rather a descriptive term that signifies multiple congenital contractures.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] In the second sibling a hypotonic flaccid weakness, without contracture, was noted.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Paholke Cambridge University Press, ٢٨‏/٠٤‏/١٩٩٨ - 178 من الصفحات The term arthrogryposis describes a range of congenital contractures that lead to childhood deformities.[books.google.com]
