Did you mean: Fracture, primarily in the legs, severe, muscle wasting

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    […] diagnosis of infants with congenital contractures and severe muscle weakness by wasting mainly confined to the upper limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fractures occurred in 38% (32/85) of patients with the femur being the most common location (25 of 57 fractures).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The condition primarily affects the muscles that control chewing and swallowing, chest wall muscles, and arm and leg muscles.[ucsfbenioffchildrens.org]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    atrophy type 1 with paradoxical breathing were placed on high-span PIP PEEP when sleeping from the point of diagnosis of spinal muscular atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These changes lead to scoliosis, fractures and significant reduction of joint mobility.[symptoma.com] This form affects primarily the muscles in the legs.[mda.org]

  • X-linked Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Characterised by severe muscle wasting as in SMA type I accompanied by congenital bone fractures PCH Spinal muscular atrophy with pontocerebellar hypoplasia (SMA-PCH) Pontocerebellar[ipfs.io] This form affects primarily the muscles in the legs.[mda.org] Often congenital contractures and/or fractures are present. Intellect is normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    This form affects primarily the muscles in the legs.[mda.org] Characterised by severe muscle wasting as in SMA type I accompanied by congenital bone fractures PCH Spinal muscular atrophy with pontocerebellar hypoplasia (SMA-PCH) Pontocerebellar[ipfs.io] -Orthotics may be used to support standing and ambulation in toddlers -Usually lightweight KAFO's -Assisted walking programs may begin -Safety is crucial 2* increased fracture[quizlet.com]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    SMA type IV is the least severe type of the disease where weakness and muscle wasting generally start in adulthood.[stemcellthailand.org] -Orthotics may be used to support standing and ambulation in toddlers -Usually lightweight KAFO's -Assisted walking programs may begin -Safety is crucial 2* increased fracture[quizlet.com] This form affects primarily the muscles in the legs.[mda.org]

  • Muscular Atrophy

    The condition primarily affects the muscles that control chewing and swallowing, chest wall muscles, and arm and leg muscles.[ucsfbenioffchildrens.org] Neuromyopathy associated ketosis should be considered in all patients with severe muscle wasting presenting with an elevated anion gap metabolic ketoacidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Maximize Calcium and Vitamin D intake, and consider bisphosphonates with a history of fractures.[medicalhomeportal.org]

  • Adult Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    The condition primarily affects the muscles that control chewing and swallowing, chest wall muscles, and arm and leg muscles.[ucsfbenioffchildrens.org] […] spinal muscular atrophy and juvenile asymmetric segmental spinal muscular atrophy.[symptoma.com] Infantile spinal muscular atrophy variant with congenital fractures in a female neonate: evidence for autosomal recessive inheritance. J Med Genet. 2002;39(1):74-7.[rarediseases.org]

  • Osgood-Schlatter Disease

    As far as the sportsman is concerned, this entails only brief loss of training and the possibility to avoid muscular atrophy of the affected leg by means of physiotherapeutic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In such avulsion fractures, landing on the ground with the knee fully extended after a jump is the most likely cause.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] or any activity that extends the leg.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Cushing's Disease

    RESULTS: Hirsutism, plethora facial, muscular weakness and muscular atrophy were more frequent in the MIC patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This case illustrates the need to consider secondary causes of osteoporosis in a young man with bone fractures, namely Cushing's syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in the abdomen, with relative thinning of the arms and legs, and abdominal stretch marks.[massgeneral.org]

  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury

    It primarily leads to leg length discrepancy. Type C (decelerate): undergrowth process (indicated by p–) due to a tenoepiphysiodesis effect (c).[web.archive.org] Injuries result in muscular atrophy and impaired muscular activation.[bmcmusculoskeletdisord.biomedcentral.com] ) rapture, and Segond fracture characterized by an avulsion fracture of the lateral tibial plateau--is reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
