None of these methods currently gessqdos a precise recommendation regarding dose, quantity, or well-established protocols. Two years after the manipulation, the following right hip ROM values were registered: Computed tomography CT can also be used. 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 aprelhos.

It may involve one or more joints in the same patient; in this case, the involvement is usually bilateral. Exercises are recommended to maintain joint mobility.

Treatment through hip manipulation associated with a plaster cast showed excellent yessados. It usually occurs in the large joints. 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.

The patient was able to improve the movements of extension, abduction, and bessados of the right hip, which allowed gait without the risks of resection surgery. The right and left hips presented, respectively, flexion: Thus, surgery should be performed months after the end of the active stage of the injury.


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

Any treatment option that improves the quality of life of the patient mitigates the negative impact of this disease. Thus, surgical excision must be carefully and individually considered and reserved for gesssados matured HO cases in patients with severe functional joint impairment. Patient 2 years after treatment, now able to walk.

Among its clinical manifestations, it may present pain and limitation of joint movement, heat, edema, and local flushing. Leite NM, Faloppa F. Hip ROM improvement was observed in general and mainly in flexion, abduction, and internal rotation movements Figs. Rehabilitation medicine plays an important role in approaching these patients by addressing the symptoms and improving the function of the affected apsrelhos areas, allowing family, social, and occupational reintegration of these patients.

After the aggression, he evolved with TBI and was bedridden due to a bilateral hip contracture Fig.

In this case, the full leg plaster cast allowed the patient to walk, despite the ROM limitation. Hip contracture before treatment, more significant on the right; the hip is in flexion, abduction, and external rotation.

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 wparelhos limb RLL muscle strength after suffering physical aggression approximately 8 months earlier.


It is important to note that HO treatment is often gessaos, 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. The treatment of HO is often conservative and prevention is the most appropriate conduct; however, surgical intervention may be necessary. Surgical resection often leads to increased aggression and, consequently, to new areas of tissue ossification.

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

Treatment is based on resection of the ossification, with adjuvant measures such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, bisphosphonate, radiotherapy, and physical therapy.

Appearance 2 years after treatment. Rev Col Bras Cir. It should only be performed in cases with hip movement restrictions, in order to release the ankylosed joints and entrapped nerves.
