29 Possible Causes for Rudimentary Ribs

  • Cerebro-Costo-Mandibular Syndrome

    * Rudimentary ribs * Rib abnormalities * Pterygium colli * Abnormal tracheal cartilaginous rings * Vertebral anomalies * Elbow hypoplasia * Hearing loss * Renal cyst * Renal[checkorphan.org] The costal abnormalities may consistof agenetic ribs, rudimentary ribs limited to theirdorsal segment (as we noticed in our case) or gapdefects between dorsal ossified and[docslide.com.br] Rib involvement is usually bilateral but not necessarily symmetrical Rudimentary or absent ribs have been described.[fetalultrasound.com]

  • Congenital Malformation of the Ribs

    We are reporting a case of VATER associated with rib anomalies in various forms like bifid rib, ribbon rib and rudimentary rib.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] incidence was 0.6%, fusion type rib abnormality was 0.3%, cervical rib was 0.2%, hypoplastic and rudimentary rib was 0.2%, and pseudoarthrosis of the 1st rib was 0.1% .[jpma.org.pk] Wakeley.

  • Cervical Rib Syndrome

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

    Cervical radiographs showed long transverse process of C7 on the right side and a small rudimentary rib articulating with C7 on the left side.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This rudimentary rib causes fibrous changes around the brachial plexus nerves, inducing compression and causing the symptoms and signs of TOS.[en.wikipedia.org] To prevent recurrence, patients must undergo first rib resection and anterior scalenectomy, as well as resection of any rudimentary or cervical ribs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thoracic Duct Obstruction

    Cervical ribs and rudimentary first ribs occur in less than 0.5% of the population.[emedicine.medscape.com] Rudimentary ribs usually arise higher in the neck than normal first ribs and typically articulate with the second rib rather than with the sternum.[emedicine.medscape.com] A search for cervical, rudimentary, or broad first ribs should be done. These structures should be resected during surgical therapy.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Scalenus Anticus Syndrome

    This rudimentary rib causes fibrous changes around the brachial plexus nerves, inducing compression and causing the symptoms and signs of TOS.[en.wikipedia.org] Neurological, related to the fibrous band associated with a rudimentary cervical rib or a giant transverse process of C7. 3. Venous—‘effort thrombosis’. 4.[eurorad.org] To prevent recurrence, patients must undergo first rib resection and anterior scalenectomy, as well as resection of any rudimentary or cervical ribs.[doi.org]

  • Congenital Anomaly of the Pelvis

    If fusion does not occur, the cartilaginous center may develop independently, forming a rudimentary rib.[academic.oup.com]

  • Defects of the Axial Skeleton

    Rudimentary cervical ribs were present in almost half of all cases and were not specifically associated with extraskeletal abnormalities.[discovery.ucl.ac.uk] Variations in vertebral morphology ( whether changes in overall numbers or homeotic transformations from one morphological type to another) and of number of well-formed ribs[discovery.ucl.ac.uk]

Anat. 66:334-370.[anatomyatlases.org] Various stages in evolution range from a complete C7 rib to a rudimentary form associated with fibrocartilaginous band.[slideshare.net] Keith. (1896) Comparison of anomalous parts of two subjects, one with cervical rib, the other with a rudimentary first rib. J. Anat. Physiol. 30:562-567.[anatomyatlases.org]

  • Cenani Syndactylism

    Multiple abnormal ribs with wavy margin are noted bilaterally. The rudimentary ribs are noted on the left side at level of rib numbers 1, 4, and 7.[njps.org]
