155 Possible Causes for Inability to Supinate Forearm, Unilateral Arm Weakness

  • Brachial Plexus Neuropathy

    Anesthesiologists attending to the patient in PACU noticed an inability of the patient to lift his right arm, abduct the shoulder, flex or supinate the forearm.[] Onset age Median 3 years Range 3 days to 15 years Weakness Acute onset Unilateral Arm Proximal & Distal Pain (50%) Osteomyelitis Shoulder or Humerus Newborns Onset: After[] weakness & pain Clinical syndrome: Unilateral hand & finger ischemia; Pain Arterial vascular: Minor Hyperabduction of arm: Pain; Reduced pulse Young adults Rib changes: None[]

  • Brachial Plexus Injury

    Other factors that lead to a negative prognosis include: Radial head dislocation caused by aggressive supination of the forearm.[] RESULTS: Five patients had unilateral arm weakness after the initiation of ECMO therapy.[] However, this type of injury is hard to treat and usually results in permanent nerve damage and total inability to use the affected arm.[]

  • Radial Head Dislocation

    Failure to treat appropriately can lead to joint instability and inability to supinate and pronate the forearm normally. Editors: Anthony J. Busti, MD, PharmD, FNLA, FAHA[]

  • Stroke

    Stroke symptoms include: sudden weakness or numbness of the face, arm, or leg, often unilateral; confusion; difficulties in speaking or seeing with one or both eyes; difficulties[] 2—Partial facial weakness 3—Complete unilateral palsy 5 Motor function (arm) 0—No drift a.[] —Complete gaze palsy 3 Visual fields 0—No visual field defect 1—Partial hemianopia 2—Complete hemianopia 3—Bilateral hemianopia 4 Facial movement 0—Normal 1—Minor facial weakness[]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    INTRODUCTION: The propositus - a two-week-old boy - was transferred to our university hospital for investigation of increased head circumference and full fontanel. On ultrasound, thrombosis of the right internal cerebral vein and intraventricular haemorrhage was diagnosed, confirmed by MRI. Family history revealed[…][]

  • Frozen Shoulder

    Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) is a chronic condition of the shoulder characterized by severe restriction of both active and passive shoulder range of motion. In patients with frozen shoulder, the movement of the shoulder is severely restricted and there is loss of both active and passive range of motion.[…][]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    Radiculopathy [ 4 ] Suspect this where there is unilateral neck, shoulder, or arm pain approximating to a dermatome.[] It is typically unilateral. Numbness and weakness follow the same distribution. Some patients will exhibit signs and symptoms of radiculopathy and myelopathy.[] There may be accompanying changes in sensation or weakness in related muscles.[]

  • Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

    Shoulder impingement syndrome is a syndrome involving tendonitis ( inflammation of tendons ) of the rotator cuff muscles as they pass through the subacromial space, the passage beneath the acromion. It is particularly associated with tendonitis of the supraspinatus muscle. [1] This can result in pain, weakness and[…][]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) is one of the subtypes of multiple sclerosis (MS) distinguished by a slow and irreversible course of myelopathy and overall neurological decline. Contrary to other MS forms, significant female predilection is not observed. Spastic paraparesis and progressive ataxia are[…][]

  • Rotator Cuff Tear

    Pathology of the rotator cuff is the cause of most common problems at the shoulder joint. Acute injuries are not as frequent as chronic cuff disease, but often they aggravate inflammatory or degenerative tendon alterations, even if they are of minor severity. Traumatic rotator cuff tears predominantly affect[…][]
