Treatment is based on resection of the ossification, with adjuvant measures such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, bisphosphonate, radiotherapy, and physical therapy. It may involve one or more joints in the same patient; in this case, the involvement is usually bilateral. Treatment of heterotopic ossification of the hip with use of a plaster cast: Surgical resection often leads to increased aggression and, consequently, to new areas of tissue ossification.

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

Risk factors of heterotopic ossification in traumatic spinal cord injury. The right and left hips presented, respectively, flexion: Furthermore, resection can cause excessive bleeding particularly in the femurand lead to increased morbidity and mortality, and if it is performed before bone maturity, there are high chances of relapse.

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

None of these methods currently have a precise recommendation regarding gessaros, quantity, or well-established protocols.


Still, the best treatment is prevention. Leite NM, Faloppa F. Clin Orthop Relat Res. Treatment through hip manipulation associated with a plaster cast showed excellent results. Naproxen in prevention of heterotopic ossification after total hip replacement. The treatment of HO is apare,hos conservative and prevention is the most appropriate conduct; however, surgical intervention may be necessary. Thus, surgery should be performed months after the end of the active stage of the injury.

Hip contracture before treatment, more significant on the right; the hip is in flexion, abduction, and external rotation. Rev Col Bras Cir. The etiology of HO is still uncertain. The cast was used for 9 months. Computed tomography CT can aparlehos be used.

Bisphosphonates can be used prophylactically to prevent recurrence of surgically excised heterotopic bones. 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. The diagnosis is made through conventional radiography.

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 usually occurs in the large joints. On physical examination, he was in good general condition and was afebrile.

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. Improvement of extension, abduction, aparelos adduction of the right hip.

An anteroposterior view radiograph of the hip showed areas of periarticular hip ossification, bilaterally, apparelhos the diagnosis of HO was made Fig. Shortly after its removal, the patient began walking with crutches for short distances and later, after several physical therapy sessions, without crutches.


It should only be performed in cases with hip movement restrictions, in order to release the ankylosed joints and entrapped nerves.

Appearance 2 years after treatment. Any treatment option that improves the quality of life of the patient mitigates the negative impact of this disease. Rehabilitation medicine plays an important role 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.

This pathology usually has a benign aparelhod, but gessadoe can cause a reduction in the range of joint movement and hamper the rehabilitation process. A clinical perspective on common forms of acquired heterotopic ossification. Two years after the manipulation, the following right hip ROM values were registered: Thus, surgical excision must be carefully and individually considered and reserved for fully matured HO cases in patients with severe functional joint impairment.

Exercises gwssados recommended to maintain joint mobility.

HO presents with elevated serum alkaline phosphatase Gesssados levels, and a transient decrease in serum calcium levels preceding the first event.

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.

The role of radiotherapy for prevention of heterotopic ossification after major hip surgery.
