After 2 weeks, the patient returned to the outpatient clinic to change the cast; and had no complaints. After the aggression, he evolved with TBI and was bedridden due to a bilateral hip contracture Fig. The role of radiotherapy for prevention of heterotopic ossification after major hip surgery.

In patients with spinal cord injury, early HO diagnosis is of utmost importance so that adequate treatment can be initiated and the chance of progression to ankylosis of the joint reduced.

The treatment of HO is often conservative and prevention is the most appropriate conduct; however, surgical intervention may be necessary.

Treatment of heterotopic ossification of the hip with use of a plaster cast: case report

A year-old male patient was treated in at the orthopedic outpatient clinic of a public university hospital, complaining of pain and progressive limitation of movement in the hips, as well as loss of right lower limb RLL muscle strength after suffering physical aggression approximately 8 months earlier.

Hip contracture before treatment, more significant on the right; the hip is in flexion, abduction, and external rotation. Heterotopic ossification HO is a process of abnormal osteogenesis in non-skeletal tissues, due to an initial metaplastic and inflammatory process, through bone neoformation in soft tissues; it is not considered a neoplasia. Clin Orthop Relat Res. Shortly after its removal, the patient began walking with crutches for short distances and later, after several physical therapy sessions, without crutches.

Rev Col Bras Cir. Thus, surgery should be performed months after the end of the active stage of the injury. Immediately after the manipulation, in the operation room, the right hip’s range of motion ROM was measured: Risk factors of heterotopic ossification in traumatic spinal cord injury.

However, surgical HO resection is usually not indicated for patients classified as Brooker grade I and II, and sometimes as grade III lesions, because of the low functional impact since they do apadelhos present active movement of the lower limbs, with risk of complications and relapses. Bisphosphonates can be used prophylactically to prevent recurrence of surgically excised heterotopic bones.


HO presents with elevated serum alkaline phosphatase AP levels, and a transient decrease in serum calcium levels preceding the first event. Patient 2 years after treatment, now able to walk.

Heterotopic ossification can be defined as the formation of bone in tissues that have no ossification properties, such as in muscles and connective tissue geasados a periarticular region, without invasion of the joint capsule. Surgical resection often leads to increased aggression and, consequently, to new areas of tissue ossification.

Thus, surgical excision must be carefully and individually considered and reserved for fully matured HO cases in patients with severe functional joint impairment.

The etiology of HO is still uncertain.
