Pubis symphisis

Justin Yax, David Cheng
Osteomyelitis pubis is an infectious inflammation of the symphysis pubis and accounts for 2% of hematogenous osteomyelitis. This differs from osteitis pubis, a non-infectious inflammation of the pubic symphysis, generally caused by shear forces in young athletes. Both conditions present with similar symptoms and are usually differentiated on the basis of biopsy and/or culture. A case of osteomyelitis pubis is presented with a discussion of symphisis pubis anatomy, clinical and laboratory presentation, etiology and risk factors, and optimal imaging studies...

Septic arthritis of the pubic symphisis is distinguished from osteitis pubis by positive cultures. The symptoms, physical examination and laboratory findings of these two conditions are comparable. We present a case of 57-year-old woman with septic arthritis of pubic symphisis caused by Streptococcus mitis, a commensal oral flora that belongs to viridans group streptococci, which normally reside in the oral cavity, the gastrointestinal and the urogenital tract.

INTRODUCTION: Pelvic fractures are not frequent, yet severe injuries, often associated to other lesions. Well defined diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are lacking, and their economical assessment is inadequate. The goal of this study is to propose the organization of a multidisciplinary center that can develop diagnosis, treatment, and follow up protocols. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 25 patients were treated from August 2008 to July 2010, 5 women and 20 men, average age 34...

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is the most common clinical subgroup of sero-negative spondyloarthropathies. Radiographic and clinical signs of bilateral inflammatory involvement of sacroiliac joints are the gold standard for the diagnosis of juvenile AS. Although radiographic evidence of sacroiliitis is included in the definition, it is not mandatory for the diagnosis of juvenile AS. The aim of this study is to describe pelvic enthesitis-osteitis MRI findings accompanying sacroiliitis in a group of juvenile AS...

AIM: To find out the potential benefit of bladder pressure (BP) measurement as a diagnostic tool for acute abdomen. BACKGROUND: Acute abdomen is one of the most important clinical entities among general surgical clinics. The diagnosis can be achieved by considering the patient's history, physical examination, laboratory analysis or by different imaging modalities. Abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) occurs due to elevated intra-abdominal pressure (IAP), and can be diagnosed by measurement of BP...

Clopidogrel is a thienopyridine derivative that is chemically related to ticlopidine, which irreversibly inhibits platelet aggregation by selectively binding to adenylate cyclase-coupled adenosine diphosphate receptors on the platelet's surface. In animal models, clopidogrel has been shown to reduce the incidence of both arterial and venous thrombi. In the present study the effects of clopidogrel on the survival of rat epigastric island flaps was researched. Epigastric island flaps of 7x7cm were raised from symphisis pubis to arcus costa with the panniculus carnosus...

Accessory scrotum is very uncommon. Here we report a 5-year old Caucasian boy presenting with an accessory scrotum localized to the left side of the pubic area. The penis and the primary scrotum were completely normal, containing two dependent testicles. On the right side of the body there was type B proximal femoral focal deficiency and there was also diastasis of the symphisis pubis. As observed in this case, abnormalities of two different embryological organ systems (accessory labioscrotal fold and proximal femoral focal deficiency) may occur concurrently at the same intrauterine time point as part of an overall embryologic mesenchymal disorder...

The authors report their experience of resection-suture of post-traumatic stenoses of the posterior urethra. Their series includes 27 patients suffering pelvic or perineal trauma (26 fractures, including 12 severe with crushing of the pelvis or symphisieal dysjunction). In 9 cases there had been an attempt at emergency repair of the urethral rupture via a perineal approach and in 5 a secondary local repair (4 urethral resection-sutures and 1 insertion of an arterial graft). Twelve patients in this series had additional lesions : 5 false channels, 3 urethroperineal fistulae, 3 urethrorectal fistulae and one periprostatic leak...

Avulsion injuries occurring near the symphisis pubis are related to the sites of origin of the adductor longus, adductor brevis, and gracilis muscles. Young athletes complain of pain near the symphisis which is increased by active adduction of the limb against resistance. Radiographic findings, similar to those found in infection and neoplasms, are mixed bone destruction and sclerosis on one side of the symphisis, frequently extending inferior pubic ramus.
