Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that lets you view and work directly inside the joint with small incisions in the skin, les Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that lets you view and work directly inside the joint with small incisions in the skin, less than a centimeter each. This type of arthroscopy is indicated to diagnose certain problems of pain or blockage in the hip, for the extraction of intra-articular loose bodies, for breaks labrum (stabilizer cartilage of the femoral head) and the impingement (excess friction in the movements of the hip). The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and after its completion it is possible that the patient may feel discomfort, swelling and numbness in the pubis, for a few hours or days. ...
Hip fracture is a break of the femur bone. The elderly and people with osteoporosis are at increased risk for this type of fracture fragile bones Hip fracture is a break of the femur bone. The elderly and people with osteoporosis are at increased risk for this type of fracture fragile bones, for a minor injury or a fall can be enough to cause the injury. Instead, most hip fractures in people with normal bone are the result of heavy impacts (such as accidents). In general, the symptoms of hip fracture are unable to walk and intense pain when moving the affected limb lower, taking a shortened position and outward rotation. Treatment usually go through surgery, in which different types of techniques such as nails, plates and full or partial dentures are used. ...
The hip prosthesis is a major surgical technique involves the replacement of degenerate artificial hip joint. The characteristics of the materials us The hip prosthesis is a major surgical technique involves the replacement of degenerate artificial hip joint. The characteristics of the materials used in this type of prosthesis allow similar to human joint mobility. To manufacture these implants used: various metals such as stainless steel alloys, cobalt, chromium and titanium; plastic, usually polyethylene, a durable and wear-resistant material which is friction. The replacement of the hip prosthesis is indicated in cases of osteoarthritis in the joint or of rheumatoid arthritis. After surgery, patients need crutches for the next month. The prostheses have limited life due to wear of materials. ...
Arthroscopic knee surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique for accessing the interior of the joint through small holes in the skin. Through Arthroscopic knee surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique for accessing the interior of the joint through small holes in the skin. Through a small caliber lens inside the knee is observed and treat various injuries without opening. Arthroscopic knee surgery is used to remove or repair torn meniscus cartilage to anterior cruciate ligament injuries broken, cut broken pieces of articular cartilage, remove loose fragments of bone or cartilage or remove inflamed synovial tissue. Recovery from knee arthroscopy is much faster than traditional surgery. Then the patient must regularly exercise his knee for several weeks. ...
The spine surgery is to correct structural abnormalities of the spine that cause pain. It is indicated in cases where there is significant compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots, and when it is due undoubtedly to the structural abnormality detected. One of those treated by surgery of cervical spine injury is a herniated disc. Cervical surgery may be necessary to reduce pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots, when pain is caused by a herniated disc or a bone of spinal canal. Trauma surgery may also be required to stabilize the cervical spine and minimize the possibility of paralysis, when a fracture or dislocation causes a vertebral instability. Likewise, cervical surgery is also used in case of degenerative diseases. ...
Hip pain are all annoying served on the hip or around it. It can be caused by a fracture, bone infection or joint pain or arthritis.
Ankle arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that lets you view and work directly inside the joint, without opening, thanks to a tiny camera. Only small incisions or cuts in the skin of about one centimeter are made. Ankle arthroscopy is applied in cases of articular cleaning and removal of loose bodies, or other treatments, such as osteochondritis. After the intervention, it is recommended a week of rest and applying ice to prevent swelling. The patient may also need to reform through specific exercises led by a fisioterapeura, lymphatic drainage and other techniques to enhance the mobility of the ankle. ...
The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the major ligaments of the knee, which passes between the femur and tibia obliquely. Its function is to provide stability to the knee, keeping the leg is moved forward with respect to the thigh. Of the four major ligaments of the knee, the anterior cruciate ligament is the one most commonly injured, especially when a sudden change occurs in the direction of the knee. The most common injuries are torn anterior cruciate ligament and partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament. Symptoms include pain, inability to walk or stand for long periods, or up and down stairs. For the treatment of both lesions can opt for surgery by arthroscopy or conservative treatment based on rehabilitation to strengthen the muscles. ...
Osteoarthritis of the spine is a degenerative disease of the cartilage discs located between the vertebrae, they lose elasticity and fail to meet the function of cushioning the impact body movement generated. This situation subjected to the vertebrae to friction between them, since they lose their elastic capacity, the disc that separates collapses and allows the vertebrae from rubbing against each other. As a result, the disc can cause severe pain. In osteoarthritis of the cervical spine and lumbar osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis is distinguished. In the cervical general wear on joints and bones, especially around the neck, causing a chronic pain occurs. As for the lumbar sometimes produce spurs that exert pressure on the nerves of the spine. This can cause weakness and pain in the arms or legs. ...
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that allows direct look inside joints and treat some lesions without opening the affected areas. Furthermore, arthroscopy allows faster patient recovery. To perform this surgery, video cameras, lenses small and small-caliber instruments that can be introduced into the joints without causing damage are used. Among the different types of arthroscopic elbow arthroscopy there, used to treat injuries such as epicondylitis or tennis elbow, elbow bursitis, sequelae of fractures, moderate stiffness, elbow synovitis and articular loose bodies. ...
The shoulder fracture is a break or a crack in the collarbone, in the scapula or the proximal humerus. In the latter case it would be called fracture of the humerus. Shoulder fractures often result from a sudden force applied on the arm (a sharp drop, bump occurred during sports or a car accident). The most common symptoms of this injury are pain, swelling, tenderness, deformity under the skin, violet color or skin discoloration, cracking and inability to move the arm. In general, the treatment of a fractured shoulder surgery needed, but we must also take into account the conservative options and minimally invasive surgical options such as arthroscopy. ...
The elbow fracture occurs when there is a break in one or more of the bones of the elbow. The main cause of this injury is usually a trauma to the elbow bones, which can be caused by a fall on an outstretched arm, fell directly on the elbow, a direct blow or twist exceeds the normal range of motion. Other factors that increase the options of having an elbow fracture are advanced age, reduced muscle mass, osteoporosis and excessive practice of certain sports. The general symptoms of an elbow fracture is pain, swelling and bruising around the elbow, numbness in the fingers, hand or forearm; decreased range of motion; and visible bulge. The course of treatment varies with the severity of the injury, but may require surgery. ...
A hand fracture is a break in one or more of the bones of the hand (metacarpals and phalanges). The phalanges are the bones of the fingers, and the metacarpals form your knuckles and connect the hand to the wrist. The causes of a broken hand may be direct blows to the area, falls on the back of the hand or muscle stress. Symptoms of injury are pain in the hand, limb deformity, inability to move or bear weight difficulty, hand numbness, swelling ... Some hand fractures require the use of a splint or cast, and others need surgery. Generally, the patient can return to work or sports activities approximately six to eight weeks after the fracture. ...
Hip osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of the cartilage that lines the union of the bones of the pelvis and femur. This fabric easy movement between the bones and prevents them from rubbing. When the cartilage thickness and texture decreases or disappears, the proper meshing between the femur and the pelvis is lost, resulting in hip osteoarthritis. The main indicator of this pathology is pain, which is mainly located in the region of the groin. Hip osteoarthritis is a chronic disease ( lifelong ) and, generally, tends to progress very slowly over the years. Treatment includes rehabilitation exercises, but in the most severe cases can opt for a surgical operation. ...
Lumbar disc hernia is an injury caused by degeneration or wear of the intervertebral discs of the spine, which act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae. Lumbar hernia is one of the most common and causes compression or irritation of the nerve root, which often just manifesting as sciatic nerve pain, depending on the position and size of the hernia. The main causes of herniated discs are articulate aging, trauma or prolonged exertion. In addition, there are risk factors that favor its appearance, such as obesity, sedentary lifestyle or snuff. Treatment varies depending on the severity of the case, and can be solved with temporary resting, drug administration, rehabilitation exercises or even surgery, it indicated only for patients who do not respond to other treatments and the pain persists markedly. A herniated disc L4 the level of injury when the pain radiates from the front of the thigh, no loss of sensation in the inside of the leg and foot, and causes weakness in the knee. L5 level of injury occurs when the pain radiates down the back of the thigh and there is a loss of sensation in the side wall of the calf and the back of the foot. Therefore, disc herniation L4 and L5 can be distinguished by the symptoms they cause. ...
The menisci are cartilage located within the knee, both on the inside (medial meniscus) and outer (lateral meniscus), which dampen the shock between the femur and the tibia. The menisci of the knee are the most damaged structures to be hit in that area, especially in sports like soccer. In fact, the medial meniscus is more prone to injury than the lateral meniscus, and which is connected to medial collateral ligament and the joint capsule, so that it is less mobile. Treatment of a meniscus injury as broken medial meniscus may involve surgery, depending on the patient. In case of surgery, only the damaged part of the meniscus is cut by arthroscopy. ...
Neck pain is that which occurs at the top of the column, in the cervical spine. It is a pain produced generally by trauma, disease, progressive deterioration, poor posture or emotional stress. Specifically, the neck pain can be caused by any irregularity or tension in this area of the spine, in the muscles, ligaments, nerves or disks, as in the vertebrae and their joints. The symptoms of neck pain can be of varying degrees, from mild discomfort to a sharp, sudden and severe pain. You can also become a chronic neck pain when it lasts more than three months and usually more common in women than in men. Besides, in patients suffering from neck pain and persistent headache it is recommended consultation with a doctor and physiotherapy. ...
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that affects the joints and cartilage. Osteoarthritis causes an inability but it is difficult to cause disability. As cartilage progresses and disappear pain occurs, the bone reacts growing on the sides and causing a deformation. ...
Pain is an unpleasant feeling of discomfort and physical suffering that develops in the central nervous system by an internal or external cause of the body. It can be sharp or dull, intermittent or constant, and can affect a particular part of the body or the board. Because pain is a symptom, it can help diagnose an illness or injury, because if a patient did not feel it, you would not realize that it has hurt or suffering from any disease. To relieve pain, different treatments, such as analgesics, acupuncture or surgery, depending on the cause are used. ...
Shoulder arthroscopy is a practice of minimally invasive surgery that allows you to see directly inside the joint and work within it, without opening it. Only a few small cuts in the skin, about one centimeter each are made. Shoulder arthroscopy can treat injuries such as rotator cuff impingement syndrome, shoulder instability, SLAP lesions, articular cartilage injuries, chronic synovitis, shoulder stiffness and some types of fractures. Recovery can take between one and six months and probably the patient must wear splints during the first week. For many procedures, physical therapy may help regain motion and strength of the shoulder. ...
The shoulder prosthesis is the replacement of the joint by a plastic part by surgery, where it is indicated that the shoulder joint is seriously damaged by osteoarthritis. With this technique a reduction of pain and restoration of mobility is achieved. In the shoulder prosthesis a metal part to the humeral head and a piece of polyethylene shoulder blade, both sealed with cement or embedded is set. There is also the reverse shoulder prosthesis, aimed at patients aged 60 years, who returned shoulder mobility. In the inverted, in place of the humeral head is placed the receiver and where the receiver should be, the humeral head is placed. These prostheses are indicated in the massive rupture of tendons, beyond repair, which is associated with certain joint osteoarthritis. ...
The spinal fracture is a break or the collapse of one of the bones of the spine. This can happen for a strong impact in the area or for the loss of bone mass, osteoporosis caused by eg. Although removal of bone mass may also occur for other cusas: cancer, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hyperthyroidism and long-term use of corticosteroids. In these cases, the deterioration causes bone fractures can also occur as a result of normal activity, such as bending over or get something. Symptoms include a sudden onset of pain or a chronic, dull back pain and weakness or immobility of all or any part of the body. Traditional treatment for spinal fractures includes extended bedrest, pain medication and the use of corsets. These treatments can reduce pain, but do not stabilize the fracture or correct the related spinal deformity. In fact, a spinal fracture can cause irreversible damage as a total or partial paralysis of the injured. ...
Wrist arthroscopy is a minimally invasive technique through small incisions in the skin, which allows access and treat both joint and soft tissue joint injuries. This intervention can diagnose and treat pathologies difficult to define today. Include the development of arthroscopy of the trapeze-metacarpal joint, which can address at an early stage of this joint degeneration. Also, you can treat injuries of ligaments and meniscus of the wrist and fractures. After removing the points physiotherapy treatment, which can last from two to four weeks it is needed. You may require the use of a rigid wristband discontinuous during that period. ...
