In patients with spinal cord injury, early HO diagnosis is of utmost importance so that adequate treatment can be initiated and the chance of progression to ankylosis of the joint reduced. Rehabilitation medicine plays an important role in approaching these patients by addressing the symptoms and improving the function of the affected body areas, allowing family, social, and occupational reintegration of these patients.

Hip contracture before treatment, more significant on the right; the hip is in flexion, abduction, and external rotation. This pathology usually has a benign course, but it can cause a reduction in the range of joint movement and hamper the rehabilitation process. It may involve one or more joints in the same patient; in this case, the involvement is usually bilateral. After the aggression, he evolved with TBI and was bedridden due to a bilateral hip contracture Fig.
On physical examination, he was in good general condition and was afebrile. Furthermore, resection can cause excessive bleeding particularly in the femurand lead to increased morbidity and mortality, and if it is performed before bone maturity, there are high chances of relapse. In some cases, it can present moderate fever, severe spasticity, and even ankylosis in more advanced stages of the disease.
The diagnosis is made through conventional radiography. Increased AP is also observed in the presence of fractures and liver diseases. The initial clinical manifestations of HO include pain and limitation of joint movement, heat, edema, local flushing, and, in some cases, moderate fever and severe spasticity.
Clin Orthop Relat Res. Appearance 2 years after treatment. Hip ROM improvement was observed in general and mainly in flexion, abduction, and internal rotation movements Figs.
Naproxen in prevention of heterotopic ossification after total hip replacement. The role of radiotherapy for prevention of heterotopic ossification after major hip surgery.
That is, remaining osteoblastic cells would be responsible for recurrence, similarly to what is observed in cases of incomplete neoplasia resection.
Shortly after its removal, the patient began walking with crutches for short distances and later, after several physical therapy sessions, without crutches. HO presents with elevated serum alkaline phosphatase AP levels, and a transient decrease in serum calcium levels preceding the first event. It is believed that recurrence is associated with the presence of osteoblastic activity at the HO site at the time of resection.
Patient 2 years after treatment, now able to walk. Heterotopic ossification HO is a process of abnormal osteogenesis in non-skeletal tissues, due to an initial metaplastic and inflammatory process, through bone neoformation in soft tissues; it is not considered a neoplasia.
Bisphosphonates can be used prophylactically to prevent recurrence of surgically excised heterotopic bones. In this case, the full leg plaster cast allowed the patient to walk, despite the ROM limitation.
Immediately after the manipulation, in the gessafos room, the right hip’s range of motion ROM was measured: Gsssados to the high rates of recurrence with resection surgery, the authors chose to manipulate the right hip joint under anesthesia, placing a full leg plaster cast on the right lower limb on July 10,without any complications. The etiology of HO is still uncertain. Still, the best treatment is prevention. A clinical perspective on common forms of acquired heterotopic ossification.
Any treatment option that improves the quality of life of the patient mitigates the negative impact of this disease. After 2 weeks, the patient returned to the outpatient clinic to change the cast; and had no complaints.
A year-old male patient was treated in at the orthopedic outpatient clinic of a public university hospital, complaining of pain and progressive limitation of movement in the hips, as well as loss of right lower limb RLL muscle strength after suffering physical aggression approximately gessadis months earlier. An anteroposterior apatelhos radiograph of the hip showed areas of periarticular hip ossification, bilaterally, and the diagnosis of HO was made Fig. Treatment is based on resection of the ossification, with adjuvant measures such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, bisphosphonate, radiotherapy, and physical therapy.
The cast was used for 9 months. Rev Col Bras Cir.
aparrlhos Heterotopic ossification can be defined as the formation of bone in tissues that have no ossification properties, such as in muscles and connective tissue of a periarticular region, without invasion of the joint capsule. Exercises are recommended to maintain joint mobility.

The right and left hips presented, respectively, flexion: Among its clinical manifestations, it may present pain and limitation of joint movement, heat, edema, and local flushing. None of these methods currently have a precise recommendation regarding dose, quantity, or well-established protocols.
Thus, surgery should be performed months after the end of sparelhos active stage of the injury. The treatment of HO is often conservative and prevention is the most appropriate conduct; however, surgical intervention may be necessary. Thus, surgical excision must be carefully and individually considered and reserved for fully matured HO cases in patients with severe functional joint impairment.

Computed tomography CT can also be used. It usually occurs in the large joints. Risk factors of heterotopic ossification in traumatic spinal cord injury.
The objective of this report is to describe a case of heterotopic ossification in the hip after traumatic brain injury, presenting the clinical manifestations and discussing the treatment instituted with a long leg plaster cast.
