939 Possible Causes for Flexion Contracture

  • Alzheimer Disease

    In the present study we tested the cognitive effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in a case of probable Alzheimer disease (AD). The patient (male, 60 years, mild AD) underwent two cycles of treatments, separated by 2 months. In the first cycle, active stimulation (10 sessions, 2 mA for 20 min;[…][]

  • Stroke

    BMJ Case Rep. 2018 Jan 26;2018. pii: bcr-2017-222686. doi: 10.1136/bcr-2017-222686. Author information 1 Orthopaedic Surgery, National University Hospital, Singapore, Singapore. 2 Orthopaedic Surgery, Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, Yishun, Singapore. Abstract Spontaneous spinal epidural haematoma (SSEH) is a rare condition[…][]

  • Joint Contracture

    Abstract The most frequent cause of flexion contracture is immobilization, which may occur with or without trauma.[] The knee flexion contractures were corrected from 38.9 degrees preoperatively to a mean of 6.5 degrees postoperatively and to 17.3 degrees at follow-up (34 months).[] People with a flexion contracture of their knee joint can experience mobility problems due to a flexed knee.[]

  • Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    In our series, positive prognostic factors for independent or community walkers were active hips and knees, hip flexion contracture less than 20 and knee flexion contracture[] flexion contracture may also influence ambulation.[] The etiology of the anomaly remains conjectural, but the lesion should be sought for in patients with resistant flexion contracture requiring surgical release.[]

  • Parkinson's Disease

    Continuous duodenal infusion of levodopa/carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) is an established treatment to control motor fluctuations in Parkinson's disease. Duodenal infusion allows a steady absorption of the drug in the small bowel, reducing plasmatic fluctuations of levodopa. Some complications may occur during the[…][]

  • Parkinson's Disease Type 3

    Parkinson's disease type 3 (PD3) is a form of Parkinson's disease that is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. The underlying mutation has not yet been identified, but PD3 has been related to a 2.5 Mb-locus on the short arm of chromosome 2. To date, PD3 has been diagnosed in distinct families in Europe and[…][]

  • Eosinophilic Fasciitis

    The disease may cause flexion contractures and limit joint mobility and is associated with peripheral eosinophilia.[] Arthritis was observed in 21 patients; 29 patients had flexion contractures and 12 had carpal tunnel syndrome.[] contractures.[]

  • Diffuse Scleroderma

    With disease progression, ulcerations over joints and flexion contractures of the fingers, wrists, and elbows may occur.[] Flexion contractures may develop in the fingers, wrists, and elbows. Friction rubs may develop over the joints, tendon sheaths, and large bursae.[] contractures Prayer or steeple sign (inability to directly bring hands together because fingers will not fully extend) Muscle atrophy (secondary to myositis [overlap syndrome[]

  • Dupuytren Contracture

    There was no significant correlation between the DASH score on one hand and the total flexion contracture, the mean flexion contraction/finger, the mean flexion contracture[] Average preoperative metacarpophalangeal flexion contracture was 31 degrees, and proximal interphalangeal flexion contracture was 27 degrees.[] MCP-joint flexion contracture of up to 60º has been easily correctable. [5] PIP flexion contracture PIP flexion contracture of any degree constitutes an indication for surgery[]

  • Hip Contracture

    The action of the iliopsoas is hip flexion; therefore, it is the muscle of focus in hip flexion contractures.[] Adult hip flexion contracture due to neurological disease: A new treatment protocol-surgical treatment of neurological hip flexion contracture.[] contractures, hip flexion contractures can in turn hinder normal gait patterns.[]
