Creating Waves of Awareness

Dear Colleagues.

I would like to hear your experiences with pseudoarthritis. What happens when a large bone, such as in the arm, gets smashed in many places from an accident and then forms a 'false joint' called pseudoarthritis?

 

I would like to get some responses from those who have seen this in practice. thanks, Ingrid

MEDLINE: [Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) in orthopedic indications: a selective review] [English Abstract, Journal Article, Review]
Versicherungsmedizin 1998 Oct 1; 50(5):180-5

A search of Medline concerning the efficacy of shock wave therapy for pseudarthritis (nonunion), calcifying tendinitis of the shoulder, lateral epicondylitis and painful heel identified 25 publications describing 31 investigations. These investigations cannot be accepted as confirmative. The effects in pseudarthritis appear most promising but the cases reported need a reanalysis and thorough description before efficacy can be accepted as granted. Moreover, the indication as well as the stimulus parameters have to be specified and standardized. Published data on the other indications justify prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled (sham treatment) trials to confirm efficacy where again the procedure and dosing of shock wave therapy need data-based, rational standardization.

[Treatment of septic pseudoarthrosis of tibia by Ilizarov method: case report]. [English Abstract, Journal Article]
Srp Arh Celok Lek 2010 Sep-Oct; 138(9-10):643-6.

Septic pseudoarthroses of the tibia represent a relatively frequent complication of open fractures with a large soft tissue damage. They may be localized: in the proximal metaphysis, between the proximal and middle thirds, between middle and distal thirds, in the distal metaphysis.A case of a 52-year-old man with open fracture of the left tibia is presented. He fell from the height of 30 meters. The external fixation according to Mitkovic was performed in another institution. The patient was referred to our hospital nine months after the accident, with clear clinical and radiological signs of septic pseudoarthrosis of the tibia. The resection of septic pseudoarthrosis was done two weeks after admission. Three weeks later, another operation was performed, bilocal alternating distractive-compressive osteosynthesis according to Ilizarov. After eleven months Ilizarov frame was removed, with clinical, radiological signs of healing of pseudoarthrosis and complete curing of the infection. Five months after removal of the frame, the patient was fully anatomically and functionally recovered.Being satisfied with the achieved results and encouraged with the data from the literature, we recommend this method as the method of choice for the treatment of pseudoarthrosis of the tibia. The advantage consists of curing the infection using the natural bactericide power of the tissue and curing the bone defect, at the same time, and finally, producing the equalization of the legs.

Experimental Shock Wave Therapy: A search of Medline concerning the efficacy of shock wave therapy for pseudarthritis (nonunion), calcifying tendinitis of the shoulder, lateral epicondylitis and painful heel identified 25 publications describing 31 investigations. These investigations cannot be accepted as confirmative. The effects in pseudarthritis appear most promising but the cases reported need a reanalysis and thorough description before efficacy can be accepted as granted. Moreover, the indication as well as the stimulus parameters have to be specified and standardized. Published data on the other indications justify prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled (sham treatment) trials to confirm efficacy where again the procedure and dosing of shock wave therapy need data-based, rational standardization.

pseudoartritis:
Very typical situation ...
See Calcarea group & also try Glucosamine HCL,Boswellia suppliments....

thank you dr. Prabhat !

Six months of SYMPHYTUM C30 and then some months with CALC-CARB Q3 and one month with RUTA C30. even these main bone remedies do not prevent malformation. Do you have experience to correct a malformation in form of pseudoartritis?

ingrid

Pseudoarthritis is Psoric disorder.

Antipsorics can cure this condition.

thank you, Dr. Sharma!

Two Rubrics can be of use:

Injuries Bones to : Arn, Calc, Iod, Petr, Phos,phos-ac, pul, RUT,  stap, Symp

Injuries constitutional effect : ARN, Carb-v,Con, Glo, Iod, Lach, Led, Nat-s, Nit-acid, Phos, Stap, Stro ( Phatak's Rep)

thank you Dr  Bahl !

"Injuries constitutional effect" is a rubric, that I did not know.

I will work with it

ingrid

 one case of pseudoartritis i have treated with Calc Fluor 30, got minimum response.

thank you, Dr. Prabhat, for sharing your experience.

CALC FLUOR is one of the options I am thinking of as the damage is rooted in an acute incident. I think I would use a c 200 normally I work mostly with LM potencies.

regards, ingrid

hello Dr. Bahl !

until now I used the rubric "malformation of bones"

regards

ingrid

Dr Ingrid,

Malformation of bone may be more appropriate for the cases related to genetic defects. But it can be used even for the cases, of pseudo arthritis.

Regards

dear all !

as far as I know, pseudoartritis happens, when boneparts are not forming one bone, but because of some other than bone-tissue being in the way, forming a joint.

is that correct?

regards

ingrid
