The clinical picture of the patient enhanced, as the functional aspect of the hip improved; despite the limitations, a previously bedridden aparelhis was able to walk again Fig. That is, remaining osteoblastic cells would be responsible for recurrence, similarly to what is observed in cases of incomplete neoplasia resection.
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. Still, the best treatment is prevention. 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.
Thus, surgery should be performed months after the end of the active stage of the injury. None of these methods currently have a precise recommendation regarding dose, quantity, or well-established protocols. Treatment is based on resection of the ossification, with adjuvant measures such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, bisphosphonate, radiotherapy, and physical therapy. Hip contracture before treatment, more significant on the right; the hip is in flexion, abduction, and external rotation.

The diagnosis is made through conventional radiography. It usually occurs in the large joints. Hip ROM improvement was observed in general and mainly in flexion, abduction, and internal gessadoz movements Figs. An anteroposterior view radiograph of the hip showed areas of periarticular hip ossification, bilaterally, and the diagnosis of HO was made Fig.
Increased AP is also observed in the presence of fractures and liver diseases.
Improvement of extension, abduction, and adduction of the right hip. The etiology of HO is still uncertain. 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. It may involve one or more joints in the same patient; in this case, the involvement is usually bilateral.
HO presents with elevated serum alkaline phosphatase AP levels, and a transient decrease in serum calcium levels preceding the first event. The right and left aparellhos presented, respectively, flexion: Leite NM, Faloppa F.

A wedge was made in the cast 5 days later, and the patient was discharged on July 17, 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. Surgical resection often leads to increased aggression and, consequently, to new areas of tissue ossification.
Two years after the manipulation, the following right hip ROM values were registered: Among its clinical manifestations, it fessados present pain and limitation of joint movement, heat, edema, and local flushing. The initial clinical manifestations of HO include pain geswados limitation of joint movement, heat, edema, local flushing, and, in some cases, moderate fever and severe spasticity.
Computed tomography CT aparslhos also be used.
Treatment of heterotopic ossification of the hip with use of a plaster cast: case report
Exercises are recommended to maintain joint mobility. Shortly after its removal, the patient began walking with gessadks for short distances and later, after several physical therapy sessions, without crutches. 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 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. Treatment through hip manipulation associated with a plaster cast showed excellent results. Bisphosphonates can be used prophylactically to prevent recurrence of surgically excised heterotopic bones.
Appearance 2 years after treatment. The cast was used for 9 months. It should only be performed in cases with hip movement restrictions, in order to release the ankylosed joints and entrapped nerves. Naproxen in prevention of heterotopic ossification after total hip replacement. Patient 2 years after treatment, now able xparelhos walk.
Immediately after the manipulation, in the operation room, the right hip’s range of motion ROM was measured: A clinical perspective on common forms of acquired heterotopic ossification. After the aggression, he evolved with TBI and was bedridden due to a bilateral hip contracture Gessdos.

Rehabilitation medicine plays an important role in approaching these patients by addressing the symptoms gessasos improving the function of the affected body areas, allowing family, social, and occupational reintegration of these patients. Treatment of heterotopic ossification of the hip with use of a gesszdos cast: 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.
