63 Possible Causes for Limited Forearm Pronation or Supination

  • Congenital Radioulnar Synostosis

    The typical patient presents with no or very limited forearm pronation and supination, but all other joint movements are normal. It is frequently bilateral.[] The main symptom of congenital radioulnar synostosis is limitation of forearm rotation. The patient is unable to pronate or supinate the forearm.[] General examination revealed a limited extension at the elbow joint with limited forearm range in pronation and supination.[]

  • Malunited Fracture

    For example, limited pronation-supination after forearm fractures or the development of pelvic obliquity, scoliosis, and back pain secondary to leg-length inequality.[]

  • Joint Subluxation

    […] and elbow immobilization which limits pronation and supination; - dorsal capsulodesis w/ either local tissue or tendon graft (using palmaris longus ) - a radio-ulnar sling[] […] anatomic reconstruction of the distal radioulnar ligaments for posttraumatic distal radioulnar joint instability - chronic instability: - non operative treatment includes forearm[]

  • Colles' Fracture

    We developed a forearm brace that permits flexion of the elbow, but prevented pronation of the forearm, and limited extension of the elbow in approximately the last fifteen[] The results indicated a lower incidence of re-displacement in the supination group.[] CONCLUSION: We treated Colles' fractures in supination and compared the results with those obtained when treated in pronation.[]

  • Amegakaryocytic Thrombocytopenia

    Format Definition An autosomal dominant disease characterized by proximal fusion of the radius and ulna resulting in extremely limited pronation and supination of the forearm[]

  • Humero-Radial Synostosis

    forearm pronation/supination rotation of hips and abduction of shoulders Multiple fusion of proximal and middle phalangeal joints elbows and carpal and tarsal bones (especially[] pronation Limited pronation/supination of forearm HP:0006394 - 22.5.5 Radio-ulnar synostosis Radioulnar synostosis HP:0002974 - 22.5.6 Bowed ulna Bowed ulna HP:0003031 -[] pronation and supination; - in some patients the hetertopic ossification will extend into the elbow joint which will limit flexion; - management: - traumatic synostosis is[]

  • Radial Head Fracture

    […] elbow or forearm motion, particularly supination/pronation Physical exam range of motion evaluate for mechanical blocks to elbow motion flexion/extension and pronation/supination[] […] restore stability, preventing proximal migration of the radius and ulnocarpal impaction Classification Presentation Symptoms pain and tenderness along lateral aspect of elbow limited[]

  • Malignant Neoplasm of the Testis

    Mechanism of limitation of pronation/supination of the forearm in geometric models of deformities of the forearm bones.[] Malunion of the radius in pronation demonstrates a corresponding limitation in supination [ 36 ].[] Three-dimensional geometric models of forearm bones and IOM have been developed to simulate the limitations in pronation and supination associated with frontal and sagittal[]

  • Elbow Fracture

    Because the elbow is a hinged joint, range of motion is limited to flexion and extension (0[degrees]-135[degrees]), supination (90[degrees]), and pronation (90[degrees]).[] Examination of the elbow injury begins with inspection and gentle palpation of both the bones and the soft tissues, which include the skin, nerves, and blood supply to the forearm[]

  • Volkmann's Contracture

    Examination Ten weeks after the fall, physical examination revealed contracture of the forearm; pronation limited to between 50-80 degrees, absence of supination and flexion[] Terminal limitation of movements at elbow with painful pronation and supination of forearm was noted.[] In addition, the pro-nator quadratus in the distal forearm is often tight and limits supination. The next structure that can be involved is the interosseous membrane.[]
