PURPOSE: To correlate patellar reflex inhibition with sympathetic knee joint effusion. METHODS: 65 women and 40 men aged 45 to 75 (mean, 65) years underwent hip surgery. The surgery entailed dynamic hip screw fixation using the lateral approach with reflection of the vastus lateralis for pertrochantric fractures (n = 49), and hip hemiarthroplasty or total hip replacement using the Watson-Jones approach (n = 38) or hip hemiarthroplasty using the posterior approach (n = 18) for subcapital femoral fractures (n = 28) or osteoarthritis (n = 28)...

A 23-year-old man presented to our sports medicine clinic with a history of nontraumatic left anterior chest pain. Prior to presentation, a magnetic resonance image (MRI) had been performed that showed increased signal in the soft tissues around the sternoclavicular joint, primarily in the pectoralis major, and a small amount of fluid in the joint, thought possibly consistent with sympathetic effusion from a muscle tear. On examination, the patient was toxic appearing and had severe pain with virtually any left upper-extremity movement and with walking...

Knee joint effusion causes quadriceps inhibition and is accompanied by increased soleus muscle excitability. In order to reverse the neurological alterations that occur to the musculature following effusion, we need to understand the extent of neural involvement. Ten healthy adults were tested on two occasions; during one session, subjects had their knees injected with saline and in the other admission, they did not. Soleus Hmax, Mmax, plasma epinephrine, and norepinephrine concentrations were obtained at five intervals...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose was to analyze magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) abnormalities in reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSDS) of the foot, with the goal of helping to meet the difficult diagnostic challenges raised by this condition. METHODS: Retrospective study of 20 patients with RSDS of the foot, 15 at the warm phase and five at the dystrophic phase. RESULTS: Of the 15 patients at the warm phase, seven had evidence of bone edema (low signal on T1-weighted images and high signal on T2, T2 STIR, and fat saturation images) and five had occult fractures (linear band of low signal on T1 and T2 weighted images with no enhancement after contrast injection)...

We report about the juvenile and adolescent pelvic type of CRMO in 7 girls and 4 boys. The results show from solitary up to 7 pelvic lesions (average 3 lesions) predominantly in the acetabular and paraacetabular region (sometimes with hip joint effusion as a sign for concomitant coxitis).Tc99m-bone-scan is helpful to evaluate exactly the pattern of bone affection. We find 3 stages of an primarily chronic, non-purulent osteomyelitis going along with a "plasma-cell-sclerotic process", leading to a Garrè-type sclerosing end-stage, which probably heals after some years spontaneously, projecting on clinical symptoms and radiological appearance...

PURPOSE: To describe the MRI findings of reflex sympathetic dystrophy of the foot and ankle. METHODS: Retrospective study of 50 patients with reflex sympathetic dystrophy of the foot (5 with the cold form, and 45 with the warm form) diagnosed based on clinical and scintigraphic findings. All patients underwent MR imaging. The MRI findings were correlated with the clinical and scintigraphic findings. RESULTS: Patients with the cold form of reflex sympathetic dystrophy had no abnormality of signal at MR imaging...

PURPOSE: To improve the present MRI criteria for diagnosis and staging of reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) by including increased joint fluid as an additional MRI sign of RSD. DESIGN AND PATIENTS: One hundred and fourteen extremities (69 affected and 45 contralateral controls) in 57 consecutive patients with RSD were evaluated using a 1.5-T unit. T1- and T2-weighted pulse sequences, often with fat suppression, were used before and after administration of intravenous contrast enhancement (Gd)...

The iliacus muscle is closely associated with the psoas muscle, femoral nerve, hip joint, pelvic and intraabdominal structures; thus, its disorders may present as lower abdominal pain, hip pain, or femoral neuropathy. Iliacus pyomyositis, a primary bacterial infection of the skeletal muscle not secondary to a contiguous skin, bone, or soft-tissue infection, presenting as hip pain, femoral neuropathy, and sympathetic effusion of the hip joint in an 8-year-old boy mimicked septic arthritis of the hip joint. Computed tomography was helpful in delineating the accurate location of the lesion...

PURPOSE: To report magnetic resonance imaging abnormalities in reflex sympathetic dystrophy of the foot. METHODS: Retrospective study of 22 algodystrophies of the foot, in warm phase in 17 cases, in cold phase in 5. RESULTS: Algodystrophy in warm phase: Bone medullary abnormalities were noted in 17 cases (decrease of signal intensity was found in T1 weighted images, increase of signal intensity in T2 weighted images, in T1 and T2 with fat-saturation, in T1 with gadolinium), located at the increased uptake technetium site in 16 cases...

UNLABELLED: This is a retrospective study of 173 chronic laxities of the knee operated on between May 1985 and December 1988 using the Mac Intosh procedure, reinforced by the Kennedy L.A.D. Follow-up was between 4-8 years and the same surgeon operated on all the knees. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 171 patients were operated on (113 men and 58 women) aged between 15-49 years (average age 26.5 years). The vast majority were sportsmen both at competition level (51 cases) and at recreational level (119 cases)...

We report on Sudeck's dystrophy in a 69-year-old woman who complained of recurrent pain and local inflammation in the right hand. Magnetic resonance (MR) using T1- and T2-weighted images before and after intravenous administration of gadolinium diethylene-triamine pentaacetic acid demonstrated soft-tissue swelling, bone signal intensity changes in some carpals and metacarpals, and small effusions in the adjacent joints. MR imaging provides simultaneous assessment of bone and soft-tissue involvement, proving its value in the diagnosis of this entity...

The radiological appearances and diagnostic procedures for transitory osteoporosis of the hip are described. The proposed algorithm includes computed tomography of the hip joint. By means of this method, effusion and thickening of the joint capsule can be recognized with certainty and the indications for diagnostic aspiration of the joint can be defined.

We describe seven patients with primary HOA and review 125 cases reported in the English, French, and German literature. The salient clinical features of primary HOA are: a bimodal distribution of disease onset with one peak during the first year of life and the other at age 15, a male predominance (nine to one), uncommon benign joint effusion, and a variety of skin abnormalities resulting from cutaneous hypertrophy or glandular dysfunction. We concluded that HOA is not a synovial disease. It is suggested that synovial effusions, when present, are perhaps a sympathetic reaction to the neighboring periostitis...

The influence of afferent articular and periarticular input on muscle tone, joint mobility, proprioception and pain is of considerable interest to practitioners using manipulation. It has long been hypothesized that dysfunctional articulations may generate altered patterns of afferent input. This article reviews the relevant studies that have investigated the impact of articular input on efferent activity under normal conditions and under conditions of altered joint function. The findings suggest that sensory input does have a substantial effect on efferent function and sensation...

Of 30 cases of olecranon and prepatellar bursitis, ten were septic. Fever, tenderness, peribursal cellulitis, and skin involvement over the bursa were more common in the septic cases. A high leukocyte count, low bursal-to-serum glucose ratio, and positive Gram-stained smear of the bursal fluid distinguished septic from nonseptic bursitis. Rheumatoid arthritis and gout may be accompanied by nonseptic bursitis. Septic bursitis may be associated with a sympathetic sterile effusion in a neighboring joint or adjacent fascial space...
