1982 Trochanteric bursitis - a frequent cause of 'hip' pain in rheumatoid arthritis

Location: http://ard.bmj.com/cgi/content/abstract/41/6/602?ijkey=b985b422379cc078b66ea2fdcd6fb6cffdaf8745&keyt ...

One hundred consecutive patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were examined for the presence of trochanteric bursitis. This condition was found in 15. Ten patients responded to a single local injection of corticosteroid and the remaining 5 to a second injection. Trochanteric bursitis is an underdiagnosed, easily remediable cause of pain...

1990 Avascular necrosis of the femoral head presenting as trochanteric bursitis

Location: http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?tool=pubmed&pubmedid=2241294

Five patients are described with avascular necrosis of the femoral head who presented with ipsilateral trochanteric bursitis, in the absence of clearcut hip joint disease. Avascular necrosis was indicated by magnetic resonance imaging. It is suggested that clinical trochanteric bursitis, especially when refractory to local corticosteroid treatment, may be the...

1997 Diagnosis of trochanteric bursitis versus femoral neck stress fracture

Location: http://www.ptjournal.org/cgi/reprint/77/1/58

This case report describes a 46-year-old male runner who reported the sudden onset of right hip pain. A diagnosis of trochanteric bursitis was established by a physiatrist, and the patient underwent two courses of physical therapy for moist heat, ultrasound, and exercise. Because minimal improvement was seen in the patient's...

1998 Subcutaneous trochanteric bursitis an unrecognized cause of peritrochanteric pain revealed by imaging

Location: http://www.em-consulte.com/article/122501

We present four cases of subcutanea trochanterica bursitis (one involving both sides). The bursitis was acute and inflammatory in two cases, chronic and microtraumatic in one, asymptomatic in one and septic in the last case. The acutely inflamed bursa may contain a blood effusion increasing the pain. CT and MRI...

2001 Prospective evaluation of magnetic resonance imaging and physical examination findings in patients with greater trochanteric pain syndrome

Location: http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/85512919/abstract?CRETRY=1&SRETRY=0

Conclusion The results support the hypothesis that gluteus medius tendon pathology is important in defining GTPS. In this series, trochanteric bursal distension was uncommon and did not occur in the absence of gluteus medius pathology. The physical findings suggest that Trendelenburg's sign is the most sensitive and specific physical sign for...

2003 Rationale for treatment of hip abductor pain syndrome

Location: http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?tool=pubmed&pubmedid=14575251

Patients with lower back or buttock pain that radiates into the posterior or lateral leg are often referred to physical therapy with a diagnosis of sciatica. Often the physical exam does not reveal neurologic findings indicative of radiculopathy. Instead, there is hip abductor muscle pain and weakness. This syndrome involves...

2003 Trochanteric reduction osteotomy as a treatment for refractory trochanteric bursitis

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/85-B/2/199

We describe a new operative procedure for patients with chronic trochanteric bursitis. Between March 1994 and May 2000, a trochanteric reduction osteotomy was performed on ten patients (12 hips). All had received conservative treatment for at least one year. Previous surgical treatment with a longitudinal release of the iliotibial band...

2005 Corticosteroid injections for trochanteric bursitis

Location: http://bja.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/94/1/100

Although trochanteric bursa injections are commonly performed to treat hip pain, they have never been described using fluoroscopy.
CONCLUSIONS: Radiological confirmation of bursal spread is necessary to ensure that the injectate reaches the area of pathology during trochanteric bursa injections.

2005 Prognosis of trochanteric pain in primary care

Location: http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?tool=pubmed&pubmedid=15808035

Trochanteric pain is the second most important diagnosis of hip problems presenting in primary care, but its incidence and prognosis in this context is largely unknown. AIM: To determine the 1- and 5-year prognoses of trochanteric pain and the predictive variables for consistent complaints.
CONCLUSION: Trochanteric pain is shown to be...

2007 Effect of corticosteroid injection for trochanter pain syndrome

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/8/95

A considerable part of patients suffer from (greater) trochanteric pain syndrome or trochanteric bursitis. Local corticosteroid injections is one of the treatment options. Although clear evidence is lacking, small observational studies suggest that this treatment is effective in the short-term follow-up. So far, there are no randomised controlled trials...

2008 Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation for Trochanteric Bursitis eMedicine PMR

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/309286-overview

Trochanteric bursitis is characterized by painful inflammation of the bursa located just superficial to the greater trochanter of the femur. Patients typically complain of lateral hip pain, although the hip joint itself is not involved. The pain may radiate down the lateral aspect of the thigh.
