2,413 Possible Causes for Joint Contracture

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    contracture, restrictive lung disease, obstructive sleep apnea, and cardiomyopathy.[] Surgical treatment of scoliosis or joint contracture can be complicated by pneumonia, respiratory failure, or heart failure.[] Once ambulation is lost, joint contractures and scoliosis develop rapidly. Cardiomyopathy and respiratory failure are the cause of death in young adulthood.[]

  • Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    Prenatal diagnosis is usually based on the detection of diminished fetal movements and joint contractures on ultrasound.[] Multiple joint contractures became evident at 18 weeks.[] We studied a child who presented at birth with joint contractures and was subsequently found to have a CMS.[]

  • Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

    Without appropriate and early aggressive treatment, JIA may result in significant morbidity, such as leg-length discrepancy, joint contractures, permanent joint destruction[] Surgical Surgical intervention such as joint replacement or synovectomy may be required. Complications Joint deformities: Knee flexure contractures.[] Patients with refractory monarthritis or new joint contracture owing to synovitis may benefit from intraarticular corticosteroid injection(s).[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    Regardless of phenotype, all patients had various degrees of infiltrated facies, short stature, dysostosis multiplex, joint contractures, and corneal opacity typical of the[] contractures, and funnel chest.[] Majority of the patients had joint contractures, severe intellectual disability, error of refraction, hearing loss and valvular regurgitation on subspecialists' evaluation[]

  • Systemic Scleroderma

    Restriction of joint movement, contractures and muscle atrophy due to skin sclerosis.[] Reconstructive hand surgery for scleroderma joint contractures. J Hand Surg Am. 2007;32(7):1107-12. . Fox P, Chung L, Chang J.[] Skin becomes hard and thickened - this may limit joint movement or cause joint contractures; in the fingers, this is known as sclerodactyly.[]

  • Hemiplegia

    Physical therapy is vital and may include daily living activities to keep the muscles stimulated and prevent joint contractures.[] Treatment of spasticity and joint contractures.[] Another thing which can help improve the person’s quality of life include undergoing joint contractures or constraint-induced movement therapy in order to give some relief[]

  • Farber Disease

    Severe cognitive disability, failure to gain motor skills, failure to thrive, and joint contractures developed.[] Patient 2 had consanguineous parents and showed joint contractures at around 8 months of age.[] J Pediatr Neurosci 2012;7:154-5 Dear Sir, A 10-month-old boy was referred to our department for hoarseness and joint contractures. His birth weight was 2,760 g.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 2

    Major clinical manifestations include joint contractures, obstructive and restrictive airway disease, cardiac disease, skeletal deformities and often mental retardation.[] contractures.[] contractures (from joint stiffness) Tests may include: Enzyme study Genetic testing for a change in the iduronate sulfatase gene Urine test for heparan sulfate and dermatan[]

  • Dupuytren Contracture

    Assessments included change in joint contracture, range of motion, and the percentage of joints that achieved contracture of 5 or less at day 30 after the last injection.[] Pre-procedure MP joint contracture averaged 35 (range, 15 to 95 ), and PIP joint 50 (range, 15 to 110 ).[] Using the synthesis method, metacarpophalangeal joint contracture decreased from 57 degrees to 0 degrees, and proximal interphalangeal joint contracture decreased from 58[]

  • Schwartz-Jampel Syndrome

    Schwartz-Jampel syndrome is a rare inherited autosomal recessive disorder characterized by generalized myotonia, joint contractures, skeletal abnormalities and facial dysmorphism[] Joint contractures, generalised myotonia, skeletal anomalies, and facial dysmorphism are common features; malignant hyperthermia is a potentially lethal complication during[] contractures, short stature, muscle hypertrophy, clinical myotonia, and continuous muscle fiber activity.[]
