Thus, surgical excision must be carefully and individually considered and reserved for fully matured HO cases in patients with severe functional joint impairment. Two years after the manipulation, the following right hip ROM values were registered: The etiology of HO is still uncertain.

After the aggression, he evolved with TBI and was bedridden due to a bilateral hip contracture Fig.

A year-old male patient was treated in at the orthopedic outpatient clinic of a public university hospital, complaining of pain and progressive limitation of movement in the hips, as well as loss of right lower limb RLL muscle strength after suffering physical aggression approximately 8 months earlier. The patient was able to improve the movements of extension, abduction, and adduction of the right hip, which allowed gait without the risks of resection surgery. In patients with spinal cord injury, early HO diagnosis is of utmost importance so that adequate treatment can be initiated and the chance of progression to ankylosis of the joint reduced.

It should only be performed in cases with hip movement restrictions, in order to release the ankylosed joints and entrapped nerves. Gesdados its clinical manifestations, it may present pain and limitation of joint movement, heat, edema, and local flushing. Treatment of heterotopic ossification of the hip with use of a plaster cast: It is believed that recurrence is associated with the presence of osteoblastic activity at tessados HO site at aparellhos time of resection.

The role of radiotherapy for prevention of heterotopic ossification after major hip surgery. Hip contracture before treatment, more significant on the right; the hip is in flexion, abduction, and gessaxos rotation.

None of these methods currently have a precise recommendation regarding dose, quantity, or well-established protocols. This pathology usually has aaprelhos benign course, but it can cause a reduction in the range of joint movement and hamper the rehabilitation process. On physical examination, he was in good general condition and was afebrile. Furthermore, resection can cause excessive bleeding particularly in the femurand lead to increased morbidity and mortality, and if it is performed before bone gessadox, there are high chances of relapse.

Heterotopic ossification HO is a process of abnormal osteogenesis in non-skeletal tissues, due to an initial metaplastic and inflammatory process, through bone neoformation in soft tissues; it is not considered a neoplasia. Clin Orthop Relat Res. Bisphosphonates can be used prophylactically to prevent recurrence of surgically excised heterotopic bones.

Naproxen in prevention of heterotopic ossification after total hip replacement. Patient 2 gessadks after treatment, now able to walk. A clinical gesdados on common forms of acquired heterotopic ossification. HO presents with elevated serum alkaline phosphatase AP levels, and a transient decrease in serum calcium levels preceding the first event.

Gesados Col Bras Cir. An anteroposterior view radiograph of the hip showed areas of periarticular hip ossification, bilaterally, and the diagnosis of HO was made Fig.


Risk factors of heterotopic ossification in traumatic spinal cord injury. After 2 weeks, the patient returned to the outpatient clinic to change the cast; and had no complaints. Due to the high rates of recurrence with resection surgery, the authors chose to manipulate the right hip joint under anesthesia, placing a full leg plaster cast on the right lower limb on July 10,without any complications.

Treatment through hip manipulation associated with a plaster cast showed excellent results.

Rehabilitation medicine plays an important gessdaos in approaching these patients by addressing the symptoms and improving the function of the affected body areas, allowing family, social, and occupational reintegration of these patients.

Any treatment option that improves the quality of life of the patient mitigates the negative impact of this disease. The treatment of HO is often conservative and prevention is the most appropriate conduct; however, surgical intervention may be necessary.


The cast was used for 9 months. It may involve one or more joints in the same patient; in this case, the involvement is usually bilateral. In this case, the full leg plaster cast allowed the patient to walk, despite the ROM limitation. The initial clinical manifestations of HO include pain and limitation of joint movement, heat, edema, local flushing, and, in some cases, moderate fever and severe spasticity.

It is important to note that HO treatment is often conservative, provided that differential diagnoses have aparelhoos definitively ruled out deep vein thrombosis, osteosarcoma, and septic arthritis, among others.

However, surgical HO resection is usually not indicated for patients classified as Brooker grade I and II, and sometimes as grade III lesions, because of the low functional impact since they do not present active movement of the lower limbs, with risk of complications and relapses.

Shortly after its removal, the patient began walking with crutches for short distances and later, after several physical therapy sessions, without crutches. The objective of this report is to describe a case of heterotopic ossification in the hip after traumatic brain injury, presenting the clinical manifestations and discussing the treatment instituted with a long leg plaster cast.

Immediately after the manipulation, in the operation room, the right hip’s range of motion ROM was measured: The clinical picture of the patient enhanced, as the functional aspect of the hip improved; despite the limitations, a previously bedridden patient was able to walk again Fig.

It usually occurs in the large joints. Increased AP is also observed in the presence of fractures and liver diseases. Appearance 2 years after treatment. The diagnosis is made through conventional radiography. A wedge was made in the cast 5 days later, and the patient was discharged on July 17, Leite NM, Faloppa F.

The gesados and left hips presented, respectively, flexion: Hip ROM improvement was observed in general and mainly in flexion, abduction, and internal rotation movements Figs.
