CHONDROLYSIS HIP PDF

A surgeon places a video camera inside a joint, along with specialized instruments, to perform surgery through small incisions. Arthroscopic surgery often leads to a faster recovery when compared to traditional "open surgery" because less soft-tissue damage occurs as a result of the minimally invasive techniques. The surgery is considered very safe, and serious complications are rare. However, as is the case with any operation, there are possible complications.

It is characterized by the rapidly progressive destruction of articular cartilage in the hip joint resulting in premature degeneration and subsequent joint arthrosis. We report three cases of ICH: a year old boy presented with left knee pain, an year old girl with right hip pain and a year old girl with right thigh pain.

All of them had the same characteristic radiographic findings. The initial treatment was started conservatively. Surgical treatment was performed in one patient in order to confirm diagnosis and correct deformity. Key Words: Chondrolysis; Idiopathic; Hip; Paediatric; Stiffness Introduction Hip joint chondrolysis was first reported by Waldenstrom in which referred to the condition of acute cartilage necrosis associated with slipped capital femoral epiphysis SCFE , trauma, infection, and prolonged immobilization.

Jones in , described a series of hip joint chondrolysis in adolescent black females. In seven out of nine cases the causes could not be identified.

ICH is characterized by the rapidly progressive destruction of articular cartilage in the hip joint, in the absence of known aetiologies 1 , 5. The diagnosis is made by exclusion of other hip diseases with similar symptoms and signs. Most patients presented with hip, groin or knee pain, with limping or stiffness of the affected hip.

Laboratory tests are usually normal. Concentric narrowing less than 3 mm of joint space without frank osteophyte formation in conjunction with periarticular osteopenia is the hallmark radiographic finding 2 , 3 , 5. The natural history of ICH with or without treatment is unpredictable. Three cases of ICH are reported. There was no history of trauma or fever. There was no family history of rheumatological diseases. He could not bear weight on the left side.

There was no erythema, swelling, or increased warmth over the left hip, but with pain on active and passive motion. There was remarkable limitation in adduction and internal rotation of the hip. Hip radiographs Fig.

Idiopathic Chondrolysis of the Hip ( ICH): Report of three Cases

Slover,1 and Kenneth A. Ahlmann Received23 Nov Published07 May Abstract Both hemiarthroplasty and total hip arthroplasty have been well described as effective methods of management for displaced femoral neck fractures in the elderly. Acetabular erosion is a common long-term complication of hemiarthroplasty. We present a case in which rapid acetabular erosion occurs within weeks of hemiarthroplasty, ultimately leading to an acetabular fracture and need for revision to total hip arthroplasty. Early and rapid acetabular erosion following hip hemiarthroplasty has not been well documented in current literature.

Early identification of the disease process is sometimes challenging. Eventually, tenotomy, osteotomy, hip arthrodesis or early joint arthroplasty may be required [ 13 — 15 ].

Idiopathic chondrolysis of the hip

Rapid progressive damage to the articular cartilage of the hip May be primary idiopathic or secondary Often presents with hip pain and stiffness Radiographic findings of asymmetric mostly central diminution of joint space less than 3mm Treatment aimed at restoration of motion Description: Chondrolysis is defined as rapidly progressive loss of articular cartilage from both the femoral and acetabular sides of the hip. It may be idiopathic Jones or secondary to underlying conditions, such as Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis SCFE , intra-articular penetration of SCFE pins, infection, inflammatory arthritis, prolonged immobilization, or severe trauma. Epidemiology: Primary or idiopathic chondrolysis was initially described in adolescent African-American females, but has since been reported in other populations as well as in males; it is now most frequently encountered in pre-adolescents. Daluga Involvement is frequently unilateral, but may be bilateral.
