In case of nonunion of femur fracture after 5-6 months of fixation with intramedullary nails n implant, what is further appropriate course of action (age 50)

Hi there There can be many factors responsible for non union of fracture like too large space for bony remodelling to bridge, Interposition of periosteum, muscle or cartilage, Bony site with limited or less blood supply and more. If fracture won't unite after 6 months it my be considered in as delayed or non union of fracture. These approaches can be effective after non union: Non-surgical approaches Early weight bearing and casting may be helpful for delayed union and non-union. Bone stimulation can sometimes be used. This delivers pulsed ultrasonic or electromagnetic waves to stimulate new bone formation. It needs to be used for up to an hour every day, and may take several weeks to be effective. Medical treatments such as teriparatide have also been used to promote fracture healing, particularly in patients with osteoporosis. Surgical approaches: Debridement to establish a healthy infection-free vascularity at the fracture site. Bone grafting to stimulate new callus formation. Bone may be taken from the patient or may be cadaveric. Bone graft substitutes/osteobiologics. Internal fixation to reduce and stabilise the fracture. Depending on the type of non-union, any combination of the above procedures.

Her ribcage is flexible. It bends wen you press it. Is it normal or any problem is there? Whats the reason for this?
It may not be a major issue... just soft cartilages.. by which the ribs attaches to the sternum... If she does not have any symptoms or complaints then you should not worry much.. You may start giving her multivitamin and multimineral tablet (I advise Amway Nutrilite Daily to my patients).

A good balance between exercise and food intake is important, as this helps to maintain muscle strength and a healthy body weight. At least 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity, such as walking, is recommended every day.

Everything You Need To Know About Heel Pains!

Everything You Need To Know About Heel Pains!

Heel pains can be extremely annoying. Most people experience the pain either behind the heel or just under it. Heel pain can affect anyone, irrespective of their age and sex. The pain, though common, seldom poses a threat or any serious health complications.

Factors responsible for heel pain

Walking, running or exercise, the heel bone or calcaneus bears the maximum stress. It acts a shield and provides strong support to the body. However, an injury, infection, or some medical conditions can affect (damage) the heel, resulting in a mild to severe pain. Heel pain can be triggered by;

Plantar Fasciitis: It is one of the most common causes of heel pain. Plantar Fasciitis is a condition characterized by inflammation of plantar fascia (tissue connecting the tip of the foot to the heel). The inflammation mainly results from overstretched plantar fascia. Tight calf muscles (Achilles tendons), obesity, strenuous physical activities, faulty footwear or flat feet can overstretch the plantar fascia.

  1. Posterior tibial neuralgia or Tarsal tunnel syndrome (TTS): TTS is a painful compression neuropathy (ankle or foot) where there is compression of the tibial nerve.
  2. Heel bursitis: In heel bursitis, the retrocalcaneal bursa (located at the back of the heel) gets inflamed. Excessive pressure from the footwear or improper landing on the heel acts as a catalyst, resulting in the inflammation. In heel bursitis, one experiences the pain behind the heel or deep within the heel.

 Severe inflammation of the heel pain

  1. Achilles tendinitis: In Achilles tendinitis, there is an injury to the Achilles tendon (tissue that connects the heel bone to the calf bone). Continuous and repeated stress and pressure on the Achilles tendon cause the injury. Though anyone can be affected by Achilles tendinitis, it mostly affects runners and sports person.
  2. Sever's disease: Common among children (7-15 years), Sever's disease occurs when there is an inflammation of the epiphyseal plate (growth plate) in the heel.
  3. Heel bumps: It results from an excessive rubbing of the immature heel bone. Teenagers are mostly affected by this. Heel bumps can also affect ladies wearing high heels while their heel bones are yet not matured.
  4. Conditions like, Gout, Bone cyst, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Bone inflammation due to infection (Osteomyelitis), Peripheral neuropathy, Morton's neuroma can also cause the heel pain.

Treatment and Prevention:
Seek medical assistance in case of

  1. Heel pain accompanied by fever, swelling, and numbness.
  2. Pain that lasts longer than usual.
  3. Difficulty in bending the foot downwards.
  4. The heel pains even when you are resting.

Treatment:

  1. Physiotherapy is the best way to deal with a heel pain.
  2. Corticosteroids.
  3. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are also effective against heel pain.
  4. Assistive devices such as Insoles and orthotics can help speed up the healing process.
  5. Night splints, fitted to the foot and the calf at night (before sleep) can provide great relief.
  6. In extreme cases, surgery may be recommended.

Remember to

  1. Rest as much as possible.
  2. Go for proper fitted, good quality footwear.
  3. Apply ice compress on the affected area.
  4. Maintain a healthy body weight.
  5. A proper warm-up prior to any sports activities or exercise.

11 Signs Your Body Is Giving You And You Must Not Ignore!

11 Signs Your Body Is Giving You And You Must Not Ignore!

Kidney problems, although take a longer time to develop, they end up being silent killers. There are no obvious signs for months and the symptoms crop up when it's rather late.

Many younger people these days are getting diagnosed with kidney problems. This is primarily due to drinking alcohol, smoking, bad eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle. About 60% people who have diabetes or hypertension develop kidney problems eventually.

Therefore, it is advised to be aware of what harms your kidneys and take adequate care to keep them healthy.

Watch out for any of these symptoms early on.

1. Urine Color - This is probably the first symptom and unfortunately affects many people around us. With the way our lifestyles are, this is becoming an increasing concern. Urine becomes dark and there is a need to urinate yet, one is unable to do so.

2. Urine Infection - Second would be when you feel pain or difficulty while urinating. The infections in the urinary tract induce their symptoms of pain or burning during urination. If this infection spreads to the kidneys, one can feel pain in the back.

3. Blood In Urine - If there is blood in your urine, it is a sign of renal illness. While this could be happening because of various reasons, it is advisable to see your doctor soon.

4. Water Retention - The function of the kidney is to take out the extra liquid and the waste from our body. When this process is not smooth, water will stay back and cause your face, limbs and/or ankle joints to swell.

5. Weakness - Severe exhaustion would mean minimized oxygen being delivered to the cells, causing weakness in general. This is also one of the symptoms that your kidney needs medical attention.

6. Temperature Variance - If your kidney is unwell, one of the symptoms is that you will feel the chill even when the temperature is actually warm.

7. Skin Breakout - Since an unfit kidney means waste in the body is piling up, it causes the skin to break out and cause severe irritation and rashes.

8. Rise of Blood Urea Level - When the kidney is unwell, it increases the level of urea in the blood. This causes breakdown of the urea into ammonia in the spit, causes it to smell foul, like urine/metal.

9. Nausea - Waste accumulating in the blood adds up to causing nausea and vomiting.

10. Breathlessness - One can also feel the lack of breath if the condition of the kidney worsens.

11. Discomfort or Pain - Some people have been known to have bodily pains, an instant discomfort that spreads from the lower back to the groin. This usually means that there is a stone in the kidney. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
