Pott's Fracture

Dupuytren's Fracture


Presentation

  • It is our ambition to present a complete survey of all medical phenomena named for a person, with a biography of that person. Disclaimer: Whonamedit? does not give medical advice.[whonamedit.com]
  • An x-ray is the only way to determine for definite if a fracture is present.[sportsinjuryclinic.net]
  • It is important to note that an X-ray is the only way to check if a fracture is present. When an X-ray is taken early, it might not clearly reveal this due to the swelling and bleeding in the area.[firstaidcprottawa.ca]
  • It presents in a similar fashion to malignant deposits in the spine, which are encountered more frequently. The patient usually presents with pain, systemic symptoms like weight loss and raised ESR.[nature.com]
Soft Tissue Swelling
  • The point that I want to make is, that when you understand the sequence of injuries to the ankle, then you know where to look for fractures and soft tissue swelling indicating ligamentous injury.[radiologyassistant.nl]
  • Paraspinal abscesses responsible for soft tissue swelling can be visible on plain radiograph. The presence of calcification within the abscess is virtually diagnostic of spinal TB.[nature.com]
Lymphadenopathy
  • There was no lymphadenopathy. Rales were noted in right upper lung field, and the heart rate was regular, with a soft precordial systolic murmur. The abdomen was soft, with no organomegaly or tenderness noted, and pedal edema was absent.[nature.com]
Rigor
  • She denied fever, rigors, chills, cough and hemoptysis. She was referred to a hospital for management of progressive neurological deficit and persistent back pain.[nature.com]
Chills
  • She denied fever, rigors, chills, cough and hemoptysis. She was referred to a hospital for management of progressive neurological deficit and persistent back pain.[nature.com]

Sputum
  • Sputum was negative for malignant cells and acid-fast bacilli (AFB). Computed tomographic (CT) scan of the chest showed pulmonary infiltrates and fibrosis in the right lung. Abdominal CT scan was normal.[nature.com]
Aspiration
  • Fine needle aspiration of vertebrae for cytologic, histologic and bacteriologic studies has been recommended.[nature.com]
Rales
  • Rales were noted in right upper lung field, and the heart rate was regular, with a soft precordial systolic murmur. The abdomen was soft, with no organomegaly or tenderness noted, and pedal edema was absent.[nature.com]
Hemoptysis
  • She denied fever, rigors, chills, cough and hemoptysis. She was referred to a hospital for management of progressive neurological deficit and persistent back pain.[nature.com]
Productive Cough
  • Other symptoms included non-productive cough and backache.[nature.com]
Regurgitation
  • She had a history of diabetes mellitus, myocardial infarction, post percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), mitral and aortic regurgitation, congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).[nature.com]
Systolic Murmur
  • Rales were noted in right upper lung field, and the heart rate was regular, with a soft precordial systolic murmur. The abdomen was soft, with no organomegaly or tenderness noted, and pedal edema was absent.[nature.com]
Cardiomegaly
  • Chest film showed cardiomegaly with no infiltrates. During her stay in the rehabilitation hospital, the patient continued to have severe pain, despite being given adequate doses of narcotics and muscle relaxant.[nature.com]
Back Pain
  • Increasing back pain should suggest plain radiography of the spine, and perhaps followed by MRI. Our patients present with persistent back pain. Spinal radiographic findings were misinterpreted as compression fractures.[nature.com]
  • The spine is the most frequent location of musculoskeletal tuberculosis, and commonly related symptoms are back pain and lower limb weakness/paraplegia.[radiopaedia.org]
  • If such patients fall or are injured, and report limb, pelvic, or back pain or inability to bear weight, the patient and the affected limb should be stabilized and - diagnostic imaging obtained. pelvic fracture Fracture of one of more of the bones of[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
Lower Leg Pain
  • Signs and symptoms of a Pott’s fracture Patients with a Pott’s fracture typically experience a sudden onset of sharp, intense ankle or lower leg pain at the time of injury. An audible sound, such as a crack or snap, may also have been heard.[find-a-physio.com]
  • Signs and symptoms of a Pott’s fracture Patients with a Pott’s fracture typically experience a sudden onset of sharp, intense ankle or lower leg pain at the time of injury. An audible sound, such as a “crack” or “snap”, may also have been heard.[physioadvisor.com.au]

Workup

Pulmonary Infiltrate
  • Computed tomographic (CT) scan of the chest showed pulmonary infiltrates and fibrosis in the right lung. Abdominal CT scan was normal. Roentgenogram of the thoracic spine showed marked kyphosis of the thoracic spine.[nature.com]

Treatment

  • THE TREATMENT OF DUPUYTREN’S FRACTURE-DISLOCATION OF THE ANKLE.[wikiradiography.com]
  • The treatment may also involve electrotherapy, taping and bracing, exercises to improve strength, flexibility and balance, and hydrotherapy [6]. Lengthening of the tendon Achilles [7] is proved to be a treatment for complicated Pott’s fractures.[physio-pedia.com]

Prognosis

  • The following are examples of other ankle conditions: Acute Compartment Syndrome Lateral Ankle Ligament Tear Deep Vein Thrombosis Thrombophlebitis Syndesmotic Disruption Gout Rheumatoid Arthritis Talar Fracture Prognosis In the most severe cases of a[physio-pedia.com]
  • Prognosis of a Pott’s fracture In all but the most severe cases of a Pott’s fracture, patients usually make a full recovery with appropriate management (whether surgical or conservative).[find-a-physio.com]

Etiology

  • (Etiology) Some of the common causes associated with an Ankle Fracture may include: A direct fall on the ankle from a significant height Direct trauma to the ankle, such as due to an automobile accident Participation in any rough or high-impact sport[dovemed.com]
  • Stress fractures are classified as fatigue fractures or insufficiency fractures based on their etiology. Undiagnosed and untreated stress fractures may progress to frank fractures.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • Lateral instability may also be caused by damage to the peroneal tendons or their retinaculum, leading to a functional lateral instability.2,140,198,356 Although this is not a common etiology, correct diagnosis of this condition at the time of presentation[creeaza.com]

Epidemiology

  • Dr Watanakunakorn was the first infectious disease specialist practicing in Youngstown and was also involved in teaching and hospital epidemiology at St Elizabeth Health Center.[nature.com]
  • Tuberculous spondylodiscitis: epidemiology, clinical features, treatment, and outcome. Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2012 Apr;16 Suppl 2:58-72. Ballesteros R, Gómez E, Bonsfills N, González R, García FJ, Moreno J, et al.[revistabiomedica.mx]
  • It initiated one of the first epidemiological surveys of coal tar-induced cancer.[whonamedit.com]

Pathophysiology

  • Setting: Ohio, USA Methods: A review of the literature on the pathogenesis, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnostic methods, treatment and prognosis of spinal TB was conducted.[nature.com]

Prevention

  • Gentle flexion and extension of toes from the first, and of the foot after a few days, to keep the tendons moving and prevent matting ; the splint should not be removed for some days. Colles' Fracture .[chestofbooks.com]
  • Ignoring symptoms is likely to cause further damage and may slow healing or prevent healing of the Pott’s fracture altogether.[find-a-physio.com]
  • Anterior femoral dislocation Prevented by Bigelow's (iliofemoral) ligament Posterior femoral dislocation Due to weak ischiofemoral ligament.[memorize.com]
  • An ankle arthrodesis is the most dependable method of treatment for prevention of pain. Reflex sympathetic dystrophy may be a disturbing complication of ankle injuries.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
