4,092 Possible Causes for Progressive, Severe Contractures

Did you mean: Progressive, Severe, Contractures

  • Dupuytren Contracture

    Dupuytren's contracture usually progresses very slowly and may not become troublesome for years. It may never progress beyond lumps in the palm.[] Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between the severity of Dupuytren contracture and disability.[] Surgery is recommended for moderate and severe contractures, but complications and/or recurrences are frequent.[]

  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy

    Abstract Muscular dystrophies comprise at least 34 conditions, characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness and degeneration.[] In the present study we present two patients with Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy and severe upper extremity contractures treated successfully with contracture release and[] We present the progressive nature of the disease in a 26 year-old woman who had suffered from Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy detected at the age of three.[]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    (omim 253600) type 3 (lgmd3, lgmd2b) a slowly progressive form of muscular dystrophy involving the pelvic girdle with onset in the late teens.[] Physical therapy is used to promote mobility and prevent contractures. Surgery may be needed for severe contractures and scoliosis.[] Surgical release of contractures. If contractures are severe, your doctor may recommend tendon release surgery.[]

  • Melorheostosis

    We report a case of progressive, multifocal melorheostosis in a 28-year-old woman, with involvement of the left arm, chest, spine, and impressive soft tissue involvement.[] We report a case of a patient with severe knee contracture and a restricted range of motion caused by intraarticular bone fragment and hyperostotic bone lesions secondary[] The therapeutic management is generally symptomatic, in case of severe deformity or contractures might be necessary surgery.[]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    Although the age of onset varied, scoliosis, as well as restrictive respiratory dysfunction, progressed rapidly within years, once they appeared.[] Abstract We report a sporadic case of congenital muscular dystrophy (CMD) in a 13-year-old girl with early manifestation of muscle weakness and hypotonia, severe contractures[] , severe scoliosis, elevated serum creatine kinase level, myopathic electrodiagnostic changes, brain MRI with cobblestone complex, and mutation in the fukutin gene.[]

  • Central Core Disease

    The first case involves a 13-year-old boy with severe progressive scoliosis and joint contractures.[] We report two unrelated cases with an unusual, early onset congenital myopathy with severe contractures, delayed motor milestones, proximal muscle weakness, normal serum creatine[] […] central core disease involves reinnervation of type 2 fibres by type 1 axons, and that the clinical manifestation of the disease depends on the age of onset and rate of progression[]

  • Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    Subsequently there was a progressive loss of elevation and depression.[] In patients with more severe contractures, osseous surgery may be necessary.[] Lethal form with severe contractures, scoliosis, chest deformities, micrognathia, and death by age of 3 months. Psychomotor retardation may occur. 2.[]

  • Ledderhose Disease

    This tissue is somewhat aggressive and progressively and replaces the normal plantar tissue during the active stage.[] This preparatory step is used in severe Dupuytren’s contracture before excision of the affected fascia ( Journal of Hand Surgery , Jun 1996).[] It typically affects both feet and progresses slowly, but not indefinitely. [1] The nodules are often painless at first, but may cause pain when walking as they grow. [2][]

  • Arthrogryposis due to Muscular Dystrophy

    The pathologic changes in both cases were identical to those seen in progressive muscular dystrophy.[] contractures of multiple joints.[] Correlates with age and when they first experience symptoms Older child - less severe and slower progression Significant weakness within first year Progressive Loss of strength[]
