What are the tests for separation of the symphysis pubis?

What are the tests for separation of the symphysis pubis?

X-rays: This abnormally wide gap can be diagnosed by radiologic studies such as x-ray, mri, ct scan or bone scan. Manual testing by a healthcare professional can also be used. The patient is placed in various positions and pressure is applied in such a way that it provokes pain and maybe movement in the pubis. ...Read more

What does the below mean from a CT scan of the hip? The distal shaft and distal articular margin of the femur are rotated externally at 35 degrees?

What does the below mean from a CT scan of the hip? The distal shaft and distal articular margin of the femur are rotated externally at 35 degrees?

CT scan: It means that the distal femur is rotated counterclockwise(as if you are looking up from the feet) 35 degrees from the neutral position. If you have a fracture of the proximal femur or shaft, it means that the distal fracture piece is rotated relative to the proximal fractured piece of the femur. ...Read more

Comminuted impacted fracture through the neck of the left humerus with associated mild valgus angulation of the humeral shaft. Can this heal in SLING?

Comminuted impacted fracture through the neck of the left humerus with associated mild valgus angulation of the humeral shaft. Can this heal in SLING?

In short YES. : I typically do not perform surgery on nondisplaced fractures of the proximal humerus. I tell people it is like having ice cream on a cone. If the ice cream (humeral head or ball) falls off the cone(shaft) then it needs surgery if the ice cream is tilted or slightly smashed no surgery. If it is blown to prices then surgery. ...Read more

Can air within soft tissue of pelvis extendn round right lateral pelvic wall out throught both obturator foramin come from a perforated bowel rectum ?

Yes and other causes: As any gas in the soft tissues is abnormal, this should represent infection unless there is another explanation (very unusual). Causes in this area would include: diverticulitis, appendicitis, rectal perforation from trauma, inflammation or cancer, urologic infections, or generalized soft tissue infections of the perineum (Fournier's gangrene) in susceptible individuals. See MD immediately ...Read more

Back pain L1 L2 there is a milddegenerative disc change with a small left lateral disc protrusion into the inferior aspect of the neural foramen

This : This sounds like an excerpt from an MRI or myelogram of the lower spine. What's being described is a fairly typical finding for someone with degenerative disc disease and is not by itself too worrisome. If, on the other hand, you are having some back pain or some pain radiating down your left leg, then this disc problem could certainly explain those symptoms. There are a lot of things that can be done to treat this problem--if it is symptomatic--ranging from physical therapy to local steroid injections to surgery. I agree with the previous answer, which was that you should consider seeing a spine specialist, though i would add that going straight to surgery would probably be overly aggressive. ...Read more

Is 2 mm of subluxation in the C7-T1 with a mild bulging disc a big amount of movement?

Is 2 mm of subluxation in the C7-T1 with a mild bulging disc a big amount of movement?

Hmmm: The biggest key here to answer two questions. One...what are your symptoms and two.....do you have dynamic instability. Dynamic instability is abnormal motion of the bones that could pinch the nerves. People with subluxation are prone to this problem. The best way to detect this is to do flexion/extension films of the neck. That may help in determining if the finding is significant or not. ...Read more
