183 Possible Causes for Joint Deformity, Limping Gait, Osteoarthritis

  • Septic Arthritis

    The outcome of properly treated bacterial arthritis in the elderly is generally favourable and at least 50% of patients may recover without developing secondary osteoarthritis[] This condition requires prompt treatment aiming to avoid permanent damage to joint, which may result in chronic deformity or mechanical arthritis.[] Twenty patients with culture-proven bacterial arthritis had higher levels of synovial TNF-alpha than patients with osteoarthritis or with inflammatory arthritis, including[]

  • Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease

    At the latest follow-up a strong increase in the number of cases with osteoarthritis was seen.[] Clinical features include a limping gait and hip pain frequently radiating into the thigh, knees, groin, or buttocks. Pain is worse with activities.[] Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease leads to hip joint deformity. Osteochondritis dissecans following Perthes disease (OCDP) is a less common entity.[]

  • Arthritis

    Guidelines for the medical management of osteoarthritis. II. Osteoarthritis of the knee. Arthritis Rheum 1995 ;38: 1541 - 1546 4. Felson DT, Buckwalter J.[] For example, if you are limping, the way you limp can tell your doctor a lot about the severity and location of your arthritis.[] Surgery is advised to correct joint deformities and supportive treatments like physiotherapy is offered to obtain maximum movement benefit from the joint.[]

  • Osteoarthritis of the Knee

    KEYWORDS: Osteoarthritis; epidemiology; knee; laterality; plain radiograph[] Other symptoms include swelling stiffness sometimes warmth and joint deformity.[] Abstract The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons has developed Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) for Surgical Management of Osteoarthritis of the Knee.[]

  • Osteoarthritis of the Hip

    The gait pattern over short distances and abductor strength are usually normal in the early stages of the disease.[] […] limb osteoarthritis.[] Diseases that can cause this condition include Padget's disease, joint injury, developmental deformities, osteochondritis, and many others.[]

  • Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis

    Femoroacetabular impingement is a mechanical hip abnormality that typically affects young populations and leads to hip pain and premature osteoarthritis.[] In fact, most patients with SCFE are teenagers with knee or hip pain who subsequently exhibit an intermittent limping gait.[] Our observations support the emerging consensus that SCFE is a precursor of cam deformity, FAI, and joint degeneration.[]

  • Congenital Hip Dysplasia

    Abstract Major rim pathology is a precursor of osteoarthritis of the hip secondary to residual acetabular dysplasia.[] The condition tends to worsen as the child grows and if not treated, may result in the child learning to walk with a limp or unusual waddling gait.[] Dysplasia is a Greek word for development deformation, in our case that of the hip joint.[]

  • Ligament Tear

    CONCLUSIONS: A high prevalence of radiographic knee osteoarthritis was seen in male soccer players 14 years after an ACL disruption.[] Crutches may be discontinued as soon as the patient has good muscle tone, motion and can walk without a limp.[] Signs of an emergency situation when you should seek care and doctor treatment can include: Bone or joint that is clearly deformed or broken Severe swelling and/or pain, Unsteady[]

  • Gouty Arthritis

    Interestingly, osteoarthritis (OA) is now being conceptualized as a metabolic disease, as there is a correlation among hyperuricemia and metabolic syndrome (MetS).[] Walking without the proper support or with a limp for even a short period of time due to the pain of gout can cause you to develop incorrect gait patterns and put excess strain[] Without treatment, joint deformation and limitation of movement can occur.[]

  • Ankle Arthritis

    What Is Osteoarthritis? Osteoarthritis , or "wear-and-tear" arthritis, is the most common type of arthritis.[] In these circumstances, a successful fusion is very reliable in providing long-term pain relief that results in a limp free gait and allows return to more physical work.[] Ankle Joint Deformity Ankle Joint Arthritis is associated with joint deformity.[]
