Knee Pain
  • The key to curing chronic knee pain is locating the points within the knee that are the cause of knee instability. Healing from knee pain necessitates finding the source of the knee pain, while knowing and understanding the correct diagnosis.[caringmedical.com]

Frontal Bossing
  • Saul-Wilson syndrome (SWS) is a rare congenital skeletal syndrome characterized by postnatal onset of short stature, relative microcephaly, frontal bossing, prominent eyes with shallow orbits, midface hypoplasia, cataract, and generalized skeletal changes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Spastic Quadriplegia
  • Forty-four patients had spastic diplegia (53.6%), 35 had spastic quadriplegia (42.7%), two had spastic triplegia (2.4%), and one had spastic hemiplegia (1.2%). The mean patient age at SDR was 5.2 /- 2.4 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Cervical Cord Compression
  • However, the evidence seen in our series suggests rather, that this deformity is closely associated with severe cervicodorsal spinal erosion and deformity and that its presence should alert clinicians to potential problems of cervical cord compression[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Although numerous surgical techniques have been described, there is little clear consensus on operative treatment. Moreover, there is insufficient evidence to support operative over nonoperative treatment for mallet fractures. The Author(s) 2014.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Marginal or no discomfort from treatment with the orthosis was reported in 15 patients (75%), and only a single patient (5%) felt severe discomfort during the entire treatment. Use of the orthosis during the prescribed time was 89%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment Early treatment of a joint subluxation should begin by ensuring the joint is in the proper position.[orthopedics.about.com]
  • Treatment The treatment can be conservative or surgery may be needed. The conservative treatment consists of inducing a sclerosing agent inside the joint capsule.[phaa.com]

  • "Subtalar dislocation: management and prognosis for an uncommon orthopaedic condition". International Orthopaedics (Review). 40 (5): 999–1007. doi : 10.1007/s00264-015-2910-8 . PMID 26208589 . Michael A. Foy; Phillip S. Fagg (5 December 2011).[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Classification of AC separation The importance of identifying the injury type cannot be overemphasised because the treatment and prognosis hinge on an accurate diagnosis.[sportsinjurybulletin.com]
  • Prognosis Joint ligaments have poor blood supply and, therefore, heal slowly. This healing process continues long after the symptoms of the dislocation injury have diminished.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • In short, the prognosis is usually good if you take the time and make the effort to treat the problem.[shoulderaches.net]
  • This is in contradiction with the common perception, which suggests that grade I and II AC sprains have a good prognosis and are not associated with joint instability. Grade I and II injuries may cause persistent pain and late radiographic changes.[shoulderdoc.co.uk]

Etiology

Prevention

  • Therefore, prevention and appropriate treatment of glenohumeral joint subluxation should be included in rehabilitation of hemiplegic patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
