2007 Chondrolysis of the Glenohumeral Joint After Arthroscopy

Location: http://www.ajronline.org/cgi/content/full/188/4/1094

Abstract
OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this report is to describe the clinical and imaging findings of chondrolysis of the glenohumeral joint.
CONCLUSION. In the appropriate clinical setting, both radiographs and MR images of the shoulder can be used to establish the diagnosis of chondrolysis of the glenohumeral joint.

Acute Idiopathic Chondrolysis and Primary Acetabular Protrusio may be the same thing

Location: http://web.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/77-B/3/392.pdf

The case histories and investigations for five adolescent girls with a presumed diagnosis of either primary acetabular protrusio or acute idiopathic chondrolysis are presented. The follow-up ranged from three to nine years. All were treated by extensive soft-tissue release but in no case did this improve movement of the affected hip and...

Location: http://www.orthop.washington.edu/chondrolysis

Chondrolysis of the shoulder after arthroscopy - association with pain pumps to infuse local anesthetics after shoulder arthroscopy.
Chondrolysis is a severe type of shoulder arthritis in which the cartilage of the joint is abruptly lost. It can occur in otherwise healthy shoulders after arthroscopic procedures.

Glenohumeral Chondrolysis After Shoulder Arthroscopy

Location: http://www.orthop.washington.edu/UserFiles/File/research/2009_articles/Glenohumeral_Chondrolysis_Aft ...

• Chondrolysis of the shoulder, (rapid dissolution of the articular cartilage), is being diagnosed with increased frequency since the advent of shoulder arthroscopy. • No definitive etiology has been identified, although strong associations have been made with the use of thermal devices and with the administration of intra-articular anesthetics. • Management of glenohumeral chondrolysis...

Glenohumeral Chondrolysis Following Thermal Capsulorrhaphy OrthoSupersite

Location: http://www.orthosupersite.com/view.aspx?rid=20410

Operative intervention for recurrent shoulder instability depends on procedures for labral repair and capsular shift. With new technology, minimally invasive arthroscopic reconstruction became possible. More recently, reduction of capsular redundancy with thermal probes has been described. The relative ease of thermal capsulorrhaphy has led to its increase in popularity despite...

Idiopathic Chondrolysis of the Hip in Children

Location: http://www.ajronline.org/cgi/content/full/192/2/526

OBJECTIVE. The objective of our study was to identify the early MRI findings characteristic of idiopathic chondrolysis of the hip in children.
CONCLUSION. A geometric region of abnormal signal intensity centered in the proximal femoral epiphysis, accompanied by ipsilateral ill-defined acetabular bone marrow edema, mild synovial hypertrophy, and minimal if any...

Idiopathic Chondrolysis Treated With Etanercept OrthoSupersite

Location: http://www.orthosupersite.com/view.aspx?rid=37214

Idiopathic chondrolysis of the hip in children has been well documented in the literature. The insidious nature of the symptoms and lack of early radiographic findings and diagnostic testing often delay diagnosis. Children often report a stiff, painful hip and have an associated limp in the absence of trauma or...

Postsurgical Chondrolysis of the Shoulder OrthoSupersite

Location: http://www.orthosupersite.com/view.aspx?rid=37216

There are multiple reports in the literature of chondrolysis following arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Although the etiology of these cases is not known for certain, there has been speculation that radiofrequency devices, young patient age, instability surgery, intra-articular pain pumps, and type of anesthetic may be precipitating factors.
