1,480 Possible Causes for Progressive Contractures

  • Dupuytren Contracture

    This problem is caused by a progressive contracture (shortening) of the palmar fascia that produces flexion deformities of the fingers.[] Progression Dupuytren’s contracture is a progressive disease, meaning that it gradually gets worse with time. Typically it progresses slowly over many years.[] Forceful stretching of the contracted finger will not help either, and may speed the progression of contracture.[]

  • Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma

    A 56-year-old man presented with pain and stiffness in both shoulders and developed severe, rapidly progressive contractures of the fingers.[]

  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy

    Abstract Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD) is a neuromuscular disorder resulting in progressive muscle weakness, contractures, and cardiomyopathy.[] We report two patients with emerin deficient X-linked EDMD and two probable patients with EDMD with typical early contractures, progressive muscle weakness and cardiac involvement[] Patients had elbow and ankle contractures, progressive wasting of humeroperoneal muscles and cardiac failure (pacemaker implantation in all).[]

  • Fibroma

    As the disease progresses, it may cause thickening of the cord and contractures of the digits, which, in turn, can cause pain.[] As the disease progresses in the elderly population, plantar contracture develops in approximately 25 percent of the patient population.[] Similar to Dupuytren’s contracture, the incidence of plantar fibromatosis is about even for men and women with the disease being more progressive for men in their 70s.[]

  • Scoliosis

    CEREBRAL PALSY SCOLIOSIS • Most often thoracolumbar curve • Pelvic obliquity & hip contracture present INDICATIONS • Progressive curve of any degree • Normal mortality 92.[]

  • Raynaud Phenomenon

    As the disease progresses, skin and subcutaneous tissue of the fingers become stiffer, joints become immobile, and contractures develop.[]

  • Arthritis

    Flexion contractures may require intensive exercise, casting, or immobilization (eg, splinting) in progressively more stretched-open positions.[]

  • Osteoarthritis

    Another characteristic symptom of the disease is the progressive incapacity of the joint to function, leading – in the long run – to loss of mobility.[] This limitation is mainly related to the blocking of voluntary muscle functioning and the reflex contracture.[] With the evolution of the disease deformations of the bones and muscular contractures can occur, aggravating the pain and atrophying the muscles that surround the joints.[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Acute renal failure secondary to progressively decreasing renal blood flow (hepatorenal syndrome) may develop.[] Chronic alcoholism, rather than liver disease, causes Dupuytren contracture of the palmar fascia (see Figure: Dupuytren Contracture ), vascular spiders, myopathy, and peripheral[]

  • Polyneuropathy

    Rehabilitation When the CIDP condition is under controlled, early start of exercises of neurological rehabilitation can prevent muscle atrophy and contractures.[] Prognosis The prognosis in remission relapsing type of CIDP is better than the chronic progressive type; 70-90% of patients can be improved well by immunotherapy, but not[]
