Osteitis Pubis

Scott Cheatham, Morey J Kolber, Kathryn Kumagai Shimamura
: Clinical Scenario: The differential diagnosis of groin pain can be very challenging due to the many causative pathologies. Osteitis pubis is one pathology that is becoming more recognized in athletes who participate in sports such as soccer, ice hockey, rugby, and football.(1) Conservative non-operative treatment is often prescribed first prior to surgical intervention. Of particular interest, are the outcomes of non-operative rehabilitation programs and their effectiveness to return athletes to pre-injury levels of participation...

CONTEXT: Groin pain is a common entity in athletes involved in sports that require acute cutting, pivoting, or kicking such as soccer and ice hockey. Athletic pubalgia is increasingly recognized as a common cause of chronic groin and adductor pain in athletes. It is considered an overuse injury predisposing to disruption of the rectus tendon insertion to the pubis and weakness of the posterior inguinal wall without a clinically detectable hernia. These patients often require surgical therapy after failure of nonoperative measures...

A mechanistic link has been suggested between cam-type femoroacetabular impingement and increased stress on the symphysis pubis. This retrospective study was conducted to determine whether there is an increased prevalence of osteitis pubis, as evidenced by imaging, in patients with femoroacetabular impingement compared with age-matched control subjects. Search of a radiologic database of a large academic health institution for all patients with cam-type femoroacetabular impingement diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging or magnetic resonance arthrogram between January 2000 and October 2013 identified 46 cases...

TURP is a widespread urologic procedure that is performed by many urologists. This report describes a rare complication that causes serious morbidity because it is not recognized in time. This is also the first report of a prostatosymphyseal fistula treated without major surgery. Eventually diagnosis is made by a MRI 5 months after surgery. Decompressive surgery was necessary to treat pubic osteïtis with invalidating pain. Culture results revealed Escherichia coli but eventually the diagnosis was made by fistulography...

BACKGROUND: Osteitis pubis or symphysitis pubis is a rare occurring non-infectious inflammation of the symphysis, the adjacent pubic bones and surrounding tissue. The therapy might be conservative or surgical by a resection of the symphysis and involved parts of the pubic bone. Nevertheless, this resection might lead to an anterior instability impairing the posterior arch and the sacroiliac joints in the aftermath. CASE PRESENTATION: Here, we report about a 50-year-old women suffering from osteitis pubis treated by wedge resection of the symphysis and parts of the pubic bone...

Osteitis pubis (OP) is a debilitating overuse syndrome characterizing by pelvic pain and local tenderness over the pubic symphysis commonly encountered in athletes often involved in kicking, twisting and cutting activities in sports such as soccer and rugby and to a lesser degree distance running. It is a common source of groin pain in elite athletes attributable to pubis sympysis instability as the result of microtrauma caused by repetitive muscle strains on pubic bones. Diagnosis is based mainly on detailed sports history and a meticulous clinical examination, although occasionally is difficult to distinguish this nosological entity from other pathologies affecting the involved area which may occur concomitantly in the same patient...

BACKGROUND: Management of complications of laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair remains challenging as well as debatable. Relaparoscopy in management of these complications is relatively newer concept. We tried to analyse the feasibility of relaparoscopy (transabdominal preperitoneal approach) in management of complications of laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study group included 61 patients (referral cases) from a prospectively maintained database of previous laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery with majority of the patients of recurrence (n = 39)...

PURPOSE: Chronic pubic pain after the treatment of prostate cancer is often attributed to osteitis pubis. We have become aware of another complication, namely fistulation into the pubic symphysis, which is more serious and more common than previously thought. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 16 patients were treated for urosymphyseal fistulas after the treatment of prostate cancer between January 2011 and April 2014. Clinical presentation was characterized by chronic, debilitating pubic/pelvic/groin pain in all patients...

Osteitis pubis is a common form of athletic pubalgia associated with femoroacetabular impingement. Endoscopic pubic symphysectomy was developed as a less invasive option than open surgical curettage for recalcitrant osteitis pubis. This technical note demonstrates the use of the anterior and suprapubic portals in the supine lithotomy position for endoscopic burr resection of pubic symphyseal fibrocartilage and hyaline endplates. Key steps include use of the suprapubic portal for burr resection of the posteroinferior symphysis and preservation of the posterior and arcuate ligaments...

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become the standard of care imaging modality for a difficult, often misunderstood spectrum of musculoskeletal injury termed athletic pubalgia or core muscle injury. Armed with a dedicated noncontrast athletic pubalgia protocol and a late model phased array receiver coil, the musculoskeletal imager can play a great role in effective diagnosis and treatment planning for lesions, including osteitis pubis, midline pubic plate lesions, and rectus abdominis/adductor aponeurosis injury...

Recalcitrant osteitis pubis presents a challenging problem for orthopaedic surgeons. Various surgical interventions have been described for treatment, including opening-wedge resection, symphysiodesis, and curettage. We propose that endoscopic pubic symphysectomy offers an effective method of treating such a challenging problem. This article describes in detail the technique used to perform endoscopic pubic symphysectomy, and a companion video demonstrating the procedure is included. Our experience suggests that removal of the interpubic fibrocartilaginous lamina and resection of approximately 1 cm of bone can successfully eliminate all sources of pain and dysfunction caused by the recalcitrant osteitis pubis...

Groin pain is a common condition in athletes and results from various causes. Osteitis pubis, adductor dysfunction, inguinal hernia, or a combination of all three entities, generally explains the onset of symptoms. Adductor longus tendinopathy is the main cause of adductor-related groin pain. It leads to a significant reduction of sports participation and can require surgical management. Diagnosis is based on ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging. Asymptomatic findings (tendinosis, calcifications, cortical erosions) are common in athletes and care should be taken when assessing groin pain...

Symphysis pubis is an uncommon site of tuberculosis and only few cases have been reported in the literature. It is important to distinguish it from the more common entities like Osteitis pubis and Osteomyelitis of pubis symphysis to prevent delay in diagnosis and minimize morbidity and prevent complications. We report a rare case of tuberculosis of symphysis pubis in a 50-year-old Indian female from low socioeconomic status. Diagnosis is not difficult if one is aware of the condition. A high index of suspicion along with radiograph and fine needle aspiration led to the diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Injuries are common in contact sports like Australian football. The Australian Football League (AFL) has developed an extensive injury surveillance database that can be used for epidemiological studies. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study is to identify any association between the three most prevalent injuries in the AFL. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From the AFL injury surveillance data 1997-2012 the injury incidence (new injuries per club per season) and the injury prevalence data (missed games per club per season) were analysed to detect the three most common injuries that would cause a player to miss a match in the AFL...

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...
