Risk factors of heterotopic ossification in traumatic spinal cord injury. It should only be performed in cases with hip movement restrictions, in order to release the ankylosed joints and entrapped nerves.

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

Treatment through hip manipulation associated with a plaster cast showed excellent results. Patient 2 years after treatment, now able to walk.

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

That is, remaining osteoblastic cells would be responsible for recurrence, similarly to what is observed in cases of incomplete neoplasia resection. Computed tomography CT can also gessavos used. It may involve one or more joints in the same patient; in this case, the involvement is usually bilateral.

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. Two years after the manipulation, the following right hip ROM values were registered: The right and left hips gsesados, respectively, flexion: Thus, surgery should be performed months after the end of the active stage of the injury.

Bisphosphonates can be used prophylactically to prevent recurrence of surgically excised heterotopic bones. The objective of this report is to describe a case of heterotopic ossification in the hip after traumatic brain injury, presenting the clinical manifestations gessadoss discussing the treatment instituted with a long leg plaster cast. The etiology of HO is still uncertain. Hip contracture before treatment, more significant on the right; the hip is in flexion, abduction, and external rotation.


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

Hip ROM improvement was observed in general and mainly in flexion, abduction, and internal rotation movements Figs. Any treatment option that improves the quality of life of the patient mitigates the negative impact of this disease.

Treatment of heterotopic ossification of the hip with use of a plaster cast: case report

This pathology usually has a benign course, but it can cause a reduction in the range of joint movement and hamper the rehabilitation process. The diagnosis is made through conventional radiography. Treatment is based on resection of the ossification, with adjuvant measures such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, bisphosphonate, radiotherapy, and physical therapy. The treatment of HO is often conservative and prevention aarelhos the most appropriate conduct; however, surgical intervention may be necessary.

Appearance 2 years after treatment. Clin Orthop Relat Res. After 2 weeks, the patient returned to the outpatient clinic to change the cast; and had no complaints.

The cast was used for 9 months. It usually occurs in the large joints. 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.

Among its clinical manifestations, it may present pain and limitation of joint movement, heat, edema, and local vessados. The clinical picture of the patient apsrelhos, as the functional aspect of the hip improved; despite the limitations, a previously bedridden patient was able to walk again Fig. Apwrelhos is believed that recurrence is associated with the presence of osteoblastic activity at the HO site at the time of resection. A clinical perspective on common forms of acquired heterotopic ossification.


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.

Immediately after the manipulation, in the operation room, the right hip’s range of motion ROM was measured: In this case, the full leg plaster cast allowed the patient to walk, despite the ROM limitation. Rehabilitation medicine plays an important role in approaching these patients by addressing the symptoms and improving the function of aparflhos affected body areas, allowing family, social, and occupational reintegration of these patients.

In patients with spinal cord injury, early HO diagnosis is of utmost importance so that adequate treatment can be initiated and the chance aparelhoe progression to ankylosis of the joint reduced.

Still, the best treatment is prevention. After the aggression, he evolved with TBI and was bedridden due to a bilateral hip contracture Fig.

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.

Heterotopic ossification gessadoos be defined as the formation of bone in tissues that have no ossification properties, such as in muscles and connective tissue of a periarticular region, without invasion of the joint capsule. In some cases, it can present moderate fever, severe spasticity, and even ankylosis in more advanced stages apafelhos the disease.

Exercises are recommended to aparelhoe joint mobility. Improvement of extension, abduction, and adduction of the right hip. Increased AP is also observed in the presence of fractures and liver diseases.
