238 Possible Causes for Rib Fusion

  • Autosomal Recessive Spondylocostal Dysostosis

    Six subjects had short stature owing to widespread vertebral dyssegmentation with variable reduction in rib number and rib fusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Also known as spondylocostal dysostosis, Jarcho-Levin syndrome is characterized by vertebral anomalies (hemivertebrae, fused vertebrae) and asymmetry of rib fusions.[roentgenrayreader.blogspot.com] The most common radiographic findings are multiple hemivertebrae, malalignment of the ribs, intercostal rib fusions, and reduced rib number.[ctgt.net]

  • Autosomal-Recessive Robinow Syndrome

    fusions, which is not seen in the dominant form.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] fusion, brachydactyly (shortening of the digits), congenital heart disease, genital hypoplasia, and dysmorphic facial features with gum hypertrophy.[link.springer.com] Rib fusions are considered to be characteristic of the autosomal recessive form.[uniprot.org]

  • Congenital Malformation of the Ribs

  • Jarcho-Levin Syndrome

    Also known as spondylocostal dysostosis, Jarcho-Levin syndrome is characterized by vertebral anomalies (hemivertebrae, fused vertebrae) and asymmetry of rib fusions.[roentgenrayreader.blogspot.com] There could be rib fusion, malalignment or abnormal rib number.[symptoma.com] There was bilateral asymmetric costovertebral fusion of ribs with scoliosis to the right and hemivertebrae in cervical and thoracic spine [Figure 2].[jcnonweb.com]

  • Autosomal Dominant Spondylocostal Dysostosis

    The main feature include dwarfism, vertebral fusion, hemivertebrae, posterior rib fusion, reduced rib number, and other rib malformations.[uniprot.org] ; Pectus carinatum ; Posterior rib fusion ; Scoliosis ; Severe short stature ; Short neck ; Supernumerary ribs ; Syringomyelia ; Vertebral fusion Associated Genes TBX6 Mouse[mousephenotype.org] The most common radiographic findings are multiple hemivertebrae, malalignment of the ribs, intercostal rib fusions, and reduced rib number.[ctgt.net]

  • Scoliosis

    Meanwhile, spontaneous spinal fusion adjacent to the device is uncommon but infection and soft-tissue scarring are common, while drifting of the rib and spinal anchor points[web.archive.org] Endoscopic scoliosis correction is generally not as efficacious in reducing the rib hump as open posterior spinal fusion.[espine.com] Surgery Spinal fusion is the most commonly used surgical treatment. For a thoracic curve with adequate flexibility, posterior spinal fusion with instrumentation is used.[symptoma.com]

  • Robinow Syndrome

    fusions, which is not seen in the dominant form.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Using the presence of rib fusions as diagnostic of the recessive variant, and also based on the inheritance pattern in familial cases, we classified 37 patients as having[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Rib fusions appear to be present almost exclusively in the autosomal recessive form.[orpha.net]

  • Thoracoplasty

    It is also recommended in cases of primary spine deformities without rib fusion/aplasia and when the primary problem is not in the thorax itself.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSIONS: Thoracoplasty is more effective than fusion alone for reduction of rib prominence in thoracic scoliosis; it provides ample, effective bone graft for fusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of the medial part of the ribs and elevation of the ribs on the instrumentation rod) as a first stage procedure combined with spinal fusion, while in one 22 female patient[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Cortical Hyperostoses

    When the ribs are affected, costal hyperostosis can be associated with an ipsilateral exudative pleural effusion. Bony rib fusion may occur and lead to scoliosis.[emedicine.medscape.com] Costal fusion Other rib anomalies Congenital malformations of the pelvis Congenital dislocation of the hip Extrophy of bladder and cleft pelvis Aplasia and hypoplasia of[corp.credoreference.com] Sacrococcygeal agenesis Sacral agenesis Congenital absence of the pedicles Transitional vertebrae Scoliosis Congenital kyphosis Congenital malformations of the thorax Cervical ribs[corp.credoreference.com]

  • Transverse Process Fracture

    At the same time I broke 6 ribs on the same side, punctured lung, etc. I've healed for the most part, but have developed scoliosis (curvature of the spine).[medhelp.org] This has resulted in a spinal fusion that I deeply regret. I very recently figured out the cause. Some very important muscles run from the hip to the transverse process.[medhelp.org]
