  • Scar Contractures

    CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of burn scar contractures varies considerably between studies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • 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] Family history, consanguinity, pregnancy, delivery, number and severity of contractures, and outcome were evaluated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] AMC is not a sui generis disease, but rather a descriptive term that signifies multiple congenital contractures.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Joint Contracture

    CONCLUSIONS: Traumatic elbow injuries carry a risk of joint contracture, 12% of our subjects did not regain a functional range of motion, and 12% had a joint contracture that[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He developed craniosynostosis, craniofacial dysmorphism, hydrocephalus, and bilateral contracture of his elbow joints.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Contractures (Contracture Deformity) Definition: Contractures refer to the permanent tightening of non-bony tissues, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, or skin.[knowyourdisease.com]

  • Hip Contracture

There were 3 boys and 2 girls ranging in age from 7 to 14.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This article describes the endovascular aortoiliac revascularization of a paraplegic patient with hip contracture and a hostile abdomen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sitting for long periods of time may lead to a condition called hip flexion contracture.[woman.thenest.com]

  • Arthrogryposis due to Muscular Dystrophy
