19 Possible Causes for Flaccid Paralysis of the Lower Extremity, Unable to Stand

  • Radiculomyelopathy

    Abstract Wide experience over a 20-year period with 1000 interventions for radiculomyelopathy caused by cervical arthrosis is reported. The results are analyzed according to clinical signs, surgical methods, timing of operation, influence of pathogenic phenomena, age, and preexisting illness. Intra- and postoperative[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Patients may be unable to stand or walk despite reasonable strength, especially when ophthalmoparesis or impaired proprioception is present.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    For those who are comfortable while standing, special standing apparatus of work equipment may be considered.[boneandspine.com] The study was carried out on acute SCI patients who were unable to walk without any physical assistance and both groups had the same amount of training.[doi.org] The patient is unable to do elevation activities as hip and knee are locked and all the elevation activities must be accomplished by pure push-up in the shoulder girdle.[boneandspine.com]

  • Spinal Epidural Abscess

    A spinal epidural abscess is a potentially life-threatening bacterial infection of the epidural space, due to its insidious onset and nonspecific symptoms of fever, back pain and malaise. The diagnosis is often delayed, and radiculopathy accompanied by severe disability or even paralysis are seen in severe stages of[…][symptoma.com]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    Paraplegia caused by a spinal cord infarction (SCI) is a devastating perioperative complication, most often associated with aortic and spine surgery. We present two other clinical scenarios in which perioperative SCI may occur. They happened during surgical procedures performed with epidural anesthesia, in the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Poliomyelitis

    Flaccid paralysis was detected 4 weeks after OPV immunization.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The clinical symptoms include flaccid paralysis and a loss of reflexes, with resulting atrophy in the affected muscles.[web.archive.org] A 4 month-old male patient with the decreased movement of left lower extremity for 1 month was transferred to the Department of Pediatrics.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tick Paralysis

    . - A 3-year-old girl in Oregon awoke on May 13 to find herself unable to stand or use her arms.[boston25news.com] The clinical presentation appears as typical ascending flaccid paralysis.[cvbd.org] His gait was wide-based and ataxic, and he was unable to walk or stand without assistance.[nn.neurology.org]

  • Paralysis

    Neurological examinations revealed symmetrical flaccid paralysis in his lower extremities, but the patient was alert and his sensory system was intact.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The clinical presentation appears as typical ascending flaccid paralysis.[cvbd.org] He had no family history of paralysis and this was his first attack. He strongly denied drug abuse, such as anabolic steroids, thyroid and growth hormone, and diuretics.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Paraplegia

    All individuals were unable to stand or walk independently or voluntarily move their lower extremities after their injuries.[neurologyreviews.com] Shortly thereafter, the patient reported weakness and loss of sensation in the lower extremities.[anesthesiology.pubs.asahq.org] The definition of success pertaining to mortality and SCI will be assessed 30 days after TAAA repair, and ‘substantial SCI’ means that the patient is unable to stand without[bmjopen.bmj.com]

  • Spinal Cord Concussion

    STUDY DESIGN: This is a systematic review. PURPOSE: The study aimed to evaluate whether spinal cord concussion (SCC) patients can safely return to play sports and if there are factors that can predict SCC recurrence or the development of a spinal cord injury (SCI). BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Although SCC is a[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
