290 Possible Causes for Proximal Joint Contractures

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy Type Ullrich

    Abstract Ullrich's congenital muscular dystrophy (UCMD) is an autosomal recessive myopathy characterised by neonatal muscle weakness, proximal joint contractures and distal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , and multiple proximal joint contractures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] joint contractures, marked hypermobility of the distal joints and normal intelligence Ullrich scleroatonic muscular dystrophy Ullrich disease UCMD Scleroatonic Ullrich Disease[wikidata.org]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    UCMD is well defined by the clinicopathological hallmarks including distal hyperlaxity, proximal joint contractures, protruding calcanei, scoliosis and respiratory insufficiency[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] While diffuse joint contractures are characteristic of α-dystroglycanopathies, proximal joint contractures and hyperlaxity of the distal joints can be observed in patients[symptoma.com] Abstract We report 5 cases (2 familial and 3 sporadic) who share a diagnosis of congenital muscular dystrophy (CMD) in association with short stature, proximal contractures[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dupuytren Contracture

    Fifty patients with primary isolated proximal interphalangeal joint Dupuytren contractures were enrolled and followed for 2 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Using the synthesis method, metacarpophalangeal joint contracture decreased from 57 degrees to 0 degrees, and proximal interphalangeal joint contracture decreased from 58[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSIONS: This study provides evidence that CCH is not superior to PNF in the treatment of isolated proximal interphalangeal joint Dupuytren contracture regarding clinical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bethlem Myopathy

    BM is a relatively mild dominantly inherited disorder with proximal weakness and distal joint contractures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] joint contractures and distal hyperlaxity linked to collagen VI deficiency.[currentpediatricreviews.com] Common symptoms include neonatal muscle weakness, proximal joint contractures, hyperlaxity of the distal joints, failure to thrive, lack of independent ambulation, and severe[egl-eurofins.com]

  • Joint Contracture

    Abstract Proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint contractures are common complications in hand injuries and conditions such as Dupuytren's contracture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract To evaluate the long-term results of surgical treatment of proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint contractures, 68 PIP joints were retrospectively reviewed with a minimum[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] KEYWORDS: Flexor tendon; Interphalangeal joint contracture; Proximal interphalangeal joint contracture; Pulley; Trigger finger; Ultrasonography[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arthrogryposis due to Muscular Dystrophy

    Overview In this article, the author discusses Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy (UCMD), a collagen VI–related myopathy, which is characterized by proximal joint contractures[medlink.com] Patients with UCMD typically present with distal joint hyperlaxity and early proximal joint contracture.[journals.plos.org] Joint contractures are present. Distal joints are affected more frequently than proximal joints. The range of motion in the jaw is frequently limited.[boneandspine.com]

  • Musculocontractural Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Type 2

    joint contractures (joints of the knee, hip and elbow); and hypermobility of distal joints (joints of the ankles, wrists, feet and hands) Periodontal EDS (pEDS) characterized[gpnotebook.co.uk] Myopathic EDS Major criteria are: Congenital muscle hypotonia, and/or muscle atrophy, that improves with age; Proximal joint contractures (knee, hip and elbow); and Hypermobility[raredr.com] joint contractures (joints of the knee, hip and elbow and hypermobility of distal joints (joints of the ankles, wrists, feet and hands). 4 Periodontal eds (pEDS) characterized[stotmo.jeuk.amsterdam]

    Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (RCDP) is clinically characterized by symmetrical shortening of the proximal limbs, contractures of joints, a characteristic dysmorphic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] long bones, cataracts, periarticular calcifications, multiple joint contractures, and psychomotor retardation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] limb shortening with cataract with joint contractures and physical parameters less than the normal centile values for gestational age.[jcnonweb.com]
