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[] , and multiple proximal joint contractures.[] joint contractures, marked hypermobility of the distal joints and normal intelligence Ullrich scleroatonic muscular dystrophy Ullrich disease UCMD Scleroatonic Ullrich Disease[]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    UCMD is well defined by the clinicopathological hallmarks including distal hyperlaxity, proximal joint contractures, protruding calcanei, scoliosis and respiratory insufficiency[] While diffuse joint contractures are characteristic of α-dystroglycanopathies, proximal joint contractures and hyperlaxity of the distal joints can be observed in patients[] 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[]

  • Dupuytren Contracture

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

  • Bethlem Myopathy

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

  • Joint Contracture

    Abstract Proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint contractures are common complications in hand injuries and conditions such as Dupuytren's contracture.[] 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[] KEYWORDS: Flexor tendon; Interphalangeal joint contracture; Proximal interphalangeal joint contracture; Pulley; Trigger finger; Ultrasonography[]

  • 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[] Patients with UCMD typically present with distal joint hyperlaxity and early proximal joint contracture.[] Joint contractures are present. Distal joints are affected more frequently than proximal joints. The range of motion in the jaw is frequently limited.[]

  • 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[] 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[] 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[]

  • Muscle-Eye-Brain Disease Type A2

    joint hyperlaxity, proximal contractures, skin changes Ullrich’s CMD Proximal distal weakness RSMD Merosin def CMD 74.[] joint contractures, torticollis, and hip dislocation.  Distal joint hyperlaxity with a protruding calcaneus  Weakness involves distal more than proximal muscles.  Progressive[] Facial weakness, high-arched palate, ptosis, ophthalmoplegia, joint hyperlaxity, and contractures are common. Benign couse 37.[]

  • Rhizomelic Chondrodysplasia Punctata

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

  • Rhizomelic Chondrodysplasia Punctata Type 1

    […] long bones, cataracts, periarticular calcifications, multiple joint contractures, and psychomotor retardation.[] […] limbs, contractures of joints, a typical dysmorphic face, cataracts, and itchyosis.[] Systemic Involvement Multiple systems are affected by this disorder. [1] [3] The skeletal system is affected by the proximal shortening of the long bones, contractures, stiff[]
