207 Possible Causes for Quadriceps Atrophy

  • Autosomal Recessive Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2L

    Later manifestations include asymmetric involvement of the proximal muscles of the lower and upper limb-girdle, with quadriceps atrophy.[] atrophy maps to 11p13-p12. ( 17008331 ) Jarry J....Brais B. 2007 5 Anaesthetic management of a woman with autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy for emergency[] The LGMD2L phenotype is characterized by proximal weakness, with prominent asymmetrical quadriceps femoris and biceps brachii atrophy.[]

  • Synovial Hemangioma

    Doughy consistency of the mass and quadriceps atrophy are other features. Total excision should be the object of treatment.[] […] of the quadriceps and a reduced range of motion [ 3, 4 ].[] […] are knee instability which may or may not be isolated, the presence of a palpable mass, the presence of recurrent hemarthrosis or simply swelling of the knee as well as atrophy[]

  • Torn Meniscus

    […] from atrophying.[] Additionally, one should do quadriceps setting exercises with the knee straight or mini-squats, bending only to 15 degrees, to prevent giving way and keep the quadriceps muscle[] […] contractions to prevent atrophy that is associated with knee pain and swelling.One may also need to modify activities to avoid those that twist the knee.[]

  • Knee Sprain

    Before surgery, it is necessary to establish whether there is a full range of motion in the knee; if there is significant atrophy of the quadriceps and hamstrings, an intensive[] Often in the knee, the functional strength of the quadriceps muscle, especially the medial VMO muscle, is weak and atrophied.[]

  • Knee Disorder

    If the athlete has suffered for some time then they will likely have atrophy (wasting away) of the quadriceps of thigh muscles.[]

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

    Bilateral thigh pain or weakness with atrophy of the iliopsoas, quadriceps, and adductor muscles also may be present.[] Thigh muscle atrophy is prominent, disabling, and usually limited to the iliopsoas, quadriceps, and adductor muscles.[]

    Her history is atypical in that after her fifth dislocation, her recovery was hindered secondary to persistent weakness and atrophy of her quadriceps out of proportion to[] Quadriceps muscle atrophy will be delayed by 7-10 days. Slow, progressive signs if peripheral nerve tumor.[] Atrophy of the quadriceps became apparent in severe and prolonged cases.[]

  • Osteochondritis Dissecans

    There's usually limitation with movements and flexibility, also nearly always there is some quadriceps atrophy.[] Quadriceps atrophy may be present as a late finding with chronic lesions. Loss of range of motion is uncommon.[] Historically, immobilization has been encouraged; however, prolonged splinting leads to quadriceps atrophy and stiffness, which may complicate the condition. 5 Persistent[]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Clinical examination reveals muscle pseudohypertrophy affecting the calf muscles and there may be atrophy of more proximal muscles such as the quadriceps.[]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis
