Treatment is based on resection of the ossification, with adjuvant measures such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, bisphosphonate, radiotherapy, gessaados physical therapy. A wedge was made in the cast 5 days later, and the patient was discharged on July 17, The objective of this report is to describe a case of heterotopic ossification in the hip after traumatic brain injury, presenting alarelhos clinical manifestations aparelhoos discussing the treatment instituted with a long leg plaster cast.

Thus, surgery should be performed months after the end of the active stage of the injury. Clin Orthop Relat Res. Heterotopic ossification HO paarelhos 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. 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 may involve one or more joints in the same patient; in this case, the involvement is usually bilateral. Among its clinical manifestations, it may present pain and gessaods of joint movement, heat, edema, and local flushing.

This pathology usually has a benign course, but it can cause a reduction in the range of joint movement and hamper the rehabilitation process. Shortly after its removal, the patient began walking with crutches for short distances and later, after several physical therapy sessions, without crutches.


Naproxen in prevention of heterotopic ossification after total hip replacement. After the aggression, he evolved with TBI and was bedridden due to a bilateral hip contracture Fig.

Surgical resection often leads to increased aggression and, consequently, to new areas of tissue ossification. Improvement of extension, abduction, and apwrelhos of the right hip.

Hip ROM improvement was observed in general and mainly in flexion, abduction, and internal rotation movements Figs. Two years after the manipulation, the following right hip ROM values were registered: 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.

The diagnosis is made through conventional radiography. A clinical perspective on common forms of acquired heterotopic ossification.

Patient 2 years after treatment, now able to walk. Any treatment option that improves aparelhoos quality of life of the patient mitigates the negative impact of this disease.

Immediately after the manipulation, in the operation room, the right hip’s range of motion ROM was measured: It should only be performed in cases with hip movement restrictions, in order to release the ankylosed joints and entrapped nerves.

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 change the cast; and had no complaints. HO presents with elevated serum alkaline phosphatase AP levels, and a transient decrease in serum calcium levels preceding the first event.

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. Increased AP is also observed aparehlos the presence of fractures and liver diseases. Still, the best treatment is prevention. Exercises are recommended to maintain joint mobility.


It usually occurs in the large joints. Risk factors of heterotopic ossification in traumatic spinal cord injury. Heterotopic ossification can 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. The etiology of Gessdos is still aprelhos.

An anteroposterior gesssados radiograph of the hip showed areas of periarticular hip ossification, bilaterally, and the diagnosis of HO was made Fig. Treatment of heterotopic ossification of the hip with use of a plaster cast: 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.

Thus, surgical excision must be carefully and individually considered and reserved for fully matured HO cases in patients with severe functional joint impairment.

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.

Computed tomography CT can also be used. 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.

That is, remaining osteoblastic cells would be responsible for recurrence, similarly to what is observed in cases of incomplete neoplasia resection. Treatment through hip manipulation associated with a plaster cast showed excellent results.
