Madelung's deformity - some sort of bone disorder is this treatable at the age of 27 (female. My sister have it, her one of the bone in hands is abnormal xtra growth may be if not treatable in india thn which country which hospital is the best.

Erasmus Mundus Master in Adapted Physical Activity, MPT, BPTh/BPT

Madelung's deformity is usually characterized by malformed wrists and wrist bones, accompanied by short stature and is often associated with Léri-Weill dyschondrosteosis. It has only been recognized within the past hundred years. Causes of Madelung Deformity There are four types of Madelung deformity Post traumatic Following trauma that disrupts growth of the distal radial ulnar-volar physis. Dysplastic Associated with bone dysplasias like multiple hereditary osteochondromatosis, Ollier disease, achondroplasia, multiple epiphysial dysplasias, and the mucopolysaccharidoses. This type can also be seen secondary to sickle-cell disease, infection, tumor, and rickets. The most important dysplasia associated with Madelung deformity, however, is Leri-Weill dyschondrosteosis. Genetic About 30% of cases of Madelung deformity are transmitted in an autosomal dominant fashion though there us a variable expression and 50% penetrance. Madelung deformity is bilateral in about 50% of the cases. Most common chromosomal association is with Turner syndrome where mutation has been found in short stature homeobox-containing gene, SHOX, present on X chromosome. But families with this mutation and individuals with Turner syndrome and families with a history of MD have been shown to exhibit a variable expression of MD and dyschondrosteosis. This raises a possibility of a modifier gene on another area of the X chromosome or on an autosomal gene may be involved. Idiopathic Where no cause or association can be found. The exact nature of the pathologic process that causes the disturbance in the growth of the distal radial physis is unknown. When Madelung deformity is a hereditary disorder, it is transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait with incomplete penetrance. Sporadic forms do occur. It is more common in the females and involvement is frequently bilateral. Treatment of Madelung Deformity Surgery is indicated for relief of pain and cosmetic improvement. Function is usually only minimally improved. Nonoperative management may be helpful in skeletally mature individuals with mild-to-moderate short-term wrist pain due to distal radioulnar joint or radiocarpal joint. The treatment involves splintage and decrease in activity levels. The pain that is caused by the tension within the Vickers ligament does not improve with these measures and may need Release of the ligament alone or in combination with an osteotomy When patient has attained skeletal maturity, the treatments to be considered are osteotomy and aadioscaphocapitate arthrodesis if joint congruency can be achieved. Darrach or Sauve-Kapandji procedure if distal radioulnar joint congruency cannot be achieved. No specific contraindications to surgery exist other than those associated with any elective surgical procedure. The decision of surgery is guided by patients age and remaining growth potential, severity of deformity and symptoms along with radiographic findings Surgical procedures either correct the primary deformity of the radius or make compensatory change in the ulna or both. The goal of ulnar procedures is to change the relationship of the relatively long ulna to the radius. Vickers physiolysis When the deformity is noticed early and significant growth remains, changing the growth pattern of the distal radial physis to correct the deformity is possible. The Vickers ligament originates on the radius in a fossa, is 5-7 mm thick and inserts into the anterior surface of the lunate and the anterior radioulnar ligament portion of the triangular fibrocartilage complex. This ligament could be a cause of pain in Madelung deformity. It is said that the lesion is both bony and ligamentous and physiolysis [resecting the bony and ligamentous lesion] allows for a normal and compensatory growth to correct the deformity. Osteotomy of radius This is considered in older child when remaining growth is insufficient. The osteotomy can correct the position of the distal radiocarpal joint surface and brings the radius and ulna into a more proper position. It could be closing or opening wedge osteotomy. An ulna-shortening procedure can be performed along where required. Ulnar Procedures Because the radius is volar, the ulna appears to be subluxated dorsally and the incongruence at the distal radioulnar joint and impingement of the radius on the ulna in supination could lead to pain and stiffness. Following ulnar procedures have been described to allow rotation Ulnar shortening Darrach Procedure Sauve-Kapandji procedure Fusion of distal radioulnar joint Arthrodesis This is considered in the skeletally mature patient who presents with pain and in whom physical examination demonstrates limitation of motion and severe radiocarpal joint incongruity Prognosis of Madelung Deformity Pain relief and correction of the cosmetic deformity are main goals of treatment and most of patients attain both of them. Range of motion usually is only moderately improved at best.

Now knee becomes too weak. What should i do?
Football injuries are usually serious injuries. Get a mri of the knee. You would probably need arthroscopic knee surgery. It is a very safe procedure in our hands with uniformly good results. We have very good well equipped center in delhi. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Don? t ignore it lest it become beginning of a bigger problem.

Our suggestion would be to do hot water fermentation along with Cold (ice) therapy. You shall also keep a pillow under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes.

Nerve and Brachial Plexus Injury

Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Delhi

Hello, everyone. I am Dr Anubhav Gupta. I am a consultant cosmetic surgeon at Sir Gangaram Hospital, New Delhi.

Today I am going to discuss the nerve and brachial plexus injury.

What is nerve Injury?

In our body, from the brain to all other parts there is a network of nerves which sends the signal and tell us what to do. So if there is any injury in the network of filaments called nerves, then it is called as nerve injury.

What is Brachial Plexus?

A brachial plexus is a group of nerves which helps our hands to function. It starts from the spinal cord through the shoulder to the arm and to the hand. If there is any particular part which damages the neck that is called as Brachial plexus injury.

How long should I wait before being evaluated by my physician after the injury?

Whenever this nerve injury happens, these are the closed injuries. You will not see anything on the surface but you may have paralysed or weakness of a particular part. So as soon as the weakness, there is some numbness or there is paralysis of any part of the body. You should immediately contact your plastic surgeon.

Can a Brachial plexus injury be treated?

If you would have asked this question 20 years ago, then I would have said NO. But now, it is possible to treat them and with very good results.

What will happen if I do not take any treatment?

See what happens is, all the muscles in the body are innervated. If there is any injury in the nerves then it will cause weakness and ultimately paralysis of these muscles. Now, these muscles become paralyse then all these joints become stiff. S it is like a machinery if the current is not going then ultimately you will end up with that particular part of body useless.

How long does it take to after the nerve surgery for the function to return?

This is a very good question. Most patients do not realize. Basically, it is a scientific fact that whenever we have an injury to a nerve. Let us say suppose there is an injury to this level, then the part which is distilled to this becomes degenerated. When we repair, when we do the surgery, it gradually moves. It moves with the speed of 1mm per day after a latent period of 1 month. So approximately 2.5 cm (1 inch) per month. So it takes few months to function. Immediately after the surgery, you cannot expect the movement of the hand. It takes some time and it is scientifically calculated that how it comes.

 

If you have any queries related to nerve issues, you can contact me through Lybrate.

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. It looks like you are anaemic. If you have back pain after you sit for long hours then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. If you have leg pain then you have to rule out the casues for having leg pain. First of all check your weight and your haemoglobin levels, as Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there are no issues with the knee joint or back pain. If not if the pain radiates down the back of thigh and legs then it might be due to sciatica. Kindly consult the nearby physiotherapist. Hope you recover soon from the leg pain. •Standing hamstring stretch: Place the heel of your injured leg on a stool about 15 inches high. Keep your knee straight. Lean forward, bending at the hips until you feel a mild stretch in the back of your thigh. Make sure you do not roll your shoulders and bend at the waist when doing this or you will stretch your lower back instead of your leg. Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Cat and camel: Get down on your hands and knees. Let your stomach sag, allowing your back to curve downward. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Then arch your back and hold for 5 seconds. Do 3 sets of 10. •Quadruped arm/leg raise: Get down on your hands and knees. Tighten your abdominal muscles to stiffen your spine. While keeping your abdominals tight, raise one arm and the opposite leg away from you. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Lower your arm and leg slowly and alternate sides. Do this 10 times on each side. •Pelvic tilt: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your abdominal muscles and push your lower back into the floor. Hold this position for 5 seconds, then relax. Do 3 sets of 10. •Partial curl: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your stomach muscles. Tuck your chin to your chest. With your hands stretched out in front of you, curl your upper body forward until your shoulders clear the floor. Hold this position for 3 seconds. Don't hold your breath. It helps to breathe out as you lift your shoulders up. Relax. Repeat 10 times. Build to 3 sets of 10. To challenge yourself, clasp your hands behind your head and keep your elbows out to the side. •Gluteal stretch: Lying on your back with both knees bent, rest the ankle of one leg over the knee of your other leg. Grasp the thigh of the bottom leg and pull that knee toward your chest. You will feel a stretch along the buttocks and possibly along the outside of your hip on the top leg. Hold this for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Extension exercise: Lie face down on the floor for 5 minutes. If this hurts too much, lie face down with a pillow under your stomach. This should relieve your leg or back pain. When you can lie on your stomach for 5 minutes without a pillow, then you can continue with the rest of this exercise.
