It usually occurs in the large joints. On physical examination, he was in good general condition and was afebrile. Still, the best treatment is prevention.

The right and left hips presented, respectively, flexion: That is, remaining osteoblastic cells would be responsible for recurrence, similarly to what is observed in cases of incomplete neoplasia resection. In this case, the full leg plaster cast allowed gewsados patient to walk, despite the ROM limitation. Two years after the manipulation, the following right hip ROM values were registered: 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.

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.

Bisphosphonates can be used prophylactically to prevent recurrence of surgically excised heterotopic bones. Hip contracture before treatment, more significant on the right; the hip is in flexion, abduction, and external rotation. In some cases, it can present moderate fever, severe spasticity, and even ankylosis in more advanced stages of the disease. None of these methods currently have a precise recommendation regarding dose, quantity, or well-established protocols. An anteroposterior view radiograph of the hip showed areas of periarticular hip ossification, bilaterally, and the diagnosis of HO was made Fig.


Exercises are recommended to maintain joint mobility.

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.

It may involve one or more joints in the same patient; in this case, the involvement is usually bilateral. 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.

The cast was used for 9 months. 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. In patients with spinal cord injury, early Aaprelhos 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. Treatment through hip manipulation associated with a plaster gdssados showed excellent results. Thus, surgical excision must be carefully and individually considered and reserved for fully matured HO cases in patients with severe functional joint impairment.

A clinical perspective on common forms hessados acquired heterotopic ossification. Rev Col Bras Cir. Surgical resection often leads to increased aggression and, consequently, to new areas of tissue ossification.

It is believed that recurrence is associated with the presence of osteoblastic activity at the HO site at the time of resection. The etiology of HO is still uncertain. Hip ROM improvement gexsados observed in general and mainly in flexion, abduction, and internal rotation movements Figs.

After 2 weeks, the patient returned to the outpatient clinic to change the cast; and had no complaints.


Improvement of extension, abduction, and adduction of the right hip. Furthermore, resection can cause excessive bleeding particularly in the femurand lead to increased morbidity and mortality, and if gesaados is performed before bone maturity, there are high chances of relapse.

Treatment of heterotopic ossification of the hip with use of a plaster cast: Computed tomography CT can also be used. It is important to note that HO treatment is often conservative, provided that differential diagnoses have been definitively ruled out deep vein thrombosis, osteosarcoma, and septic arthritis, among others. HO presents with elevated serum alkaline phosphatase AP levels, and a transient decrease in serum calcium levels preceding the first event.

Thus, surgery should be performed months after the end of the active stage of the injury. This pathology usually has a benign course, but it can cause a reduction in the range of joint movement and hamper the rehabilitation process. Risk factors of heterotopic ossification in traumatic spinal cord injury.

Among its clinical manifestations, it may present pain and limitation of joint movement, heat, edema, and local flushing. 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.

Shortly after its removal, the patient began walking with crutches for short distances and later, after several physical therapy sessions, without crutches. 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.

Immediately after the manipulation, in the operation room, the right hip’s range of motion ROM was measured: Clin Orthop Relat Res.
