2008 Update Heterotopic Ossification in Spinal Cord Injury

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/322003-overview

Heterotopic ossification (HO) following spinal cord injury (SCI) was described first by Dejerine and Ceillier in 1918 as paraosteoarthropathy. The process is one of formation of mature lamellar bone, which is indistinguishable from normal bone, in soft tissues surrounding paralyzed joints. The bone is not connected to periosteum and becomes...

Effusion of the hips in a patient with tetraplegia

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1864804/

A 19-year-old man with a complete cervical spinal cord injury was found to have bilateral hip effusions. Joint aspiration yielded a right sterile hydroarthrosis and a left sterile hemarthrosis.
CONCLUSION: This case indicates that hip effusion may be a similar, less-common occurrence than knee effusion in patients with spinal cord...

Hypercalcemia and Spinal Cord Injury eMedicine PMR

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/322109-overview

The immobilization from acute spinal cord injury (SCI) stimulates osteoclastic bone resorption. This process results in calcium loss from the bones and hypercalciuria. Hypercalcemia results when the efflux of calcium is massive or the glomerular filtration rate of the kidneys is reduced. The onset of hypercalcemia usually is insidious. The patient...

Osteoporosis and Spinal Cord Injury eMedicine PMR

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/322204-overview

One of the inevitable complications of spinal cord injury (SCI) is the associated osteoporosis that occurs predominantly in the pelvis and the lower extremities. The acute treatment of patients with SCI has always focused on the injury itself and on the immediate complications that subsequently arise. Bone loss as a...

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/322348-overview

First described by Bastian in 1867, posttraumatic syringomyelia (PTS) refers to the development and progression of a cyst filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within the spinal cord. PTS is a relatively infrequent, but potentially devastating, complication following traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI). PTS is characterized clinically by the often insidious...
