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 provi 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. ...
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 knee prosthesis is the replacement of the joint by a plastic part by surgery, is indicated where the joint is seriously damaged by osteoarthritis. The knee prosthesis is the replacement of the joint by a plastic part by surgery, is indicated where the joint is seriously damaged by osteoarthritis. The knee prosthesis is indicated when the degree of deterioration of the knee and the pain that generates prevent the patient walk. Such implants are reproductions of the bones forming the knee, made of various metals and plastics favoring flexion and extension of the joint. Allergy to metal alloys patients there titanium knee prosthesis. Usually, the patient who has been implanted with a knee prosthesis can be incorporated to work within three to six months. ...
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. ...
Sports traumatology deals with the study and treatment of injuries sustained in sports. These can occur violently, overuse or defects training, technical deficiencies, misuse of clothing, lack of fitness, among other causes. It addresses a sports orthopedic lesions characteristic of certain sports for its predisposing factors and typical forms of presentation. The correct treatment in sports traumatology is based on the preparation of a history of each player that includes both family history and personal health, and history of injury or surgery and orthopedic aspects. These data must be added those obtained by conducting a review of admission that values sport postural aspects, skeletal muscle, joints, ligamentous, fitness, etc. and risk factors for the appearance of lesions depending on the sport. ...
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.
An ankle fracture is a break in one of the ankle bones (tibia, fibula and talus). These fractures may be partial (partially cracked bone), complete (perforated in two parts and bone) or may occur on one or both sides of the ankle. The injury may be caused by a fall or trauma. Symptoms may include pain and swelling in the injured ankle, unable to move or inability to bear weight. And, if the fracture is severe, you may notice that the parts of the fractured bone through the skin. In the latter case, the injury may require surgery, including the use of metal pins, screws or plates to hold the bones in place while the fracture heals. If the ankle fracture without surgery is, it is likely that the patient must wear a cast for at least six weeks. Most people need at least a period of between six and ten weeks to fully recover from a broken ankle. ...
The carpal tunnel or canal Connection is an area located in the anterior aspect of the wrist, crossed by numerous tendons. When this tunnel is reduced for any reason, increases the pressure inside and the median nerve ( which runs from the forearm into the hand ) is also compressed. This causes known as carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy caused by the realization of repetitive movements of hands and wrists. Patients with this pathology suffer pain in the wrist and forearm, sensation of numbness, cramps and tingling in the thumb and forefinger, especially fingers. This syndrome should be treated by surgery carpal tunnel to avoid the appearance of weakness and atrophy in some muscles of the hand as well as clumsiness in handling objects. The operation consists carpal tunnel release the nerve and is performed both open or conventional manner, as by endoscopy. The pain after surgery disappears in a few days and the rest of the symptoms are decreasing in the short term, depending on the severity of the injury. In addition, carpal tunnel rehabilitation after surgery is necessary, by performing specific exercises hand movements or physiotherapy. ...
The ganglion cyst or benign lumps that often grow out of a particular case in hand and wrist. These cysts can be painful especially at the very moment of its appearance or by the constant use of the hand. Ganglia may vary in size and may disappear completely spontaneously. Before opting for a treatment, usually observe their evolution to avoid intervention. But if the ganglion is painful in hand the fluid could be aspirated with a needle or wear a splint to prevent hand movement. If these treatments fail, it would have to resort to surgery to remove the cyst, although it should be noted that these cysts may return. ...
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, 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. ...
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. ...
Knee fracture is a break or failure of one of the bones that make up the joint (femur, tibia, fibula and patella). Usually, these bones are injured by falls, traffic accidents, injuries in contact sports and exercise, shock and other injuries. Symptoms of knee fracture are pain, swelling, limited range of motion, deformed leg and inability to walk, among others. Treating knee fracture depends on fractured bone and the type of fracture. If parts of the bones are properly aligned, perhaps it is enough to placing a splint or cast to the knee. However, if the patella is affected, you could specify an operation. Therefore, the recovery of the injury depends on the fractured bone, fracture type, treatment and evolution. ...
Knee osteoarthritis is the wear of the cartilage lining the joint bones ( femur, tibia, fibula and patella ). It is part of the skeleton suffering osteoarthritis more often because it supports your weight and the weight of the items we carry when we stand or when we travel. The cartilage serve to prevent rubbing of the bones in the knee movements, providing slip and cushioning the blows. The wear over the years and aging of cartilage is what causes osteoarthritis. The main symptom of patients with knee osteoarthritis is pain. The treatment includes a rehabilitation exercise program and a series of pharmacological treatments that help to alleviate symptoms of the disease. Furthermore, in obese patients is necessary to follow a diet to lose weight. ...
Low back pain or lumbago is pain in the bottom of the column. Low back pain is not a disease itself, but rather is a problem or a symptom whose causes can be multiple. The origin of this pain can be in bad posture, physical activity of the individual, psychological factors or degenerative diseases (such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis) caused changes in the different structures that form the backbone (ligaments, muscles, spinal discs and vertebrae). Lumbago treatment involves the administration of analgesics, muscle relaxants and applying heat to the painful area. Also, the patient should rest. ...
The medial collateral ligament of the knee is one of the ligaments that support the joint, and limit their movement from side to side. It runs from the inside of the bottom of the thighbone to the inside of the top of the shin bone, ie joins the femur to the tibia. The main injury affecting this area are the medial collateral ligament sprain and rupture of the medial collateral ligament usually caused by trauma to the knee when it is in a flexed position or external rotation and valgus (outward deflection by congenital) malformation. Another complication affecting this ligament is the Pellegrini-Stieda syndrome, which is the ossification of the medial collateral ligament of the knee. ...
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. ...
The posterior cruciate ligament connects the tibia and femur. Its function is to limit the play of the tibia relative to the femur, as well as limiting the tibial external rotation and along the anterior cruciate ligament, the forces applied to restrict the movement of the knee inward or outward, especially when important the knee is flexed. PCL injury may be caused by direct trauma to the front of the tibia that may occur, for example, in an accident in which the knee is bent and a strong impact causing it to bend backwards or is forcibly deformed. When the injury is caused by high-energy trauma, it relates to more serious injuries, fractures of long bones, pelvis or postero-external injuries or other complex structures. In most cases, partial immobilization support is applied for approximately 4 or 8 weeks and once this period is carried out rehabilitation. ...
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. ...
