Sacroiliac joint vacuum phenomenon-underreported finding.

19:29 EDT 18th April 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Sacroiliac joint vacuum phenomenon-underreported finding."

Vacuum phenomenon (VP) is commonly found in sacroiliac joints, and its significance in patients with back pain has been debated. We investigated the prevalence of sacroiliac joint vacuum phenomenon (SJVP) and the rate at which it is reported on abdominopelvic and lumbosacral spine computed tomography (CT) images by body imagers and neuroradiologists. We hypothesized that it would be more common than not and that neuroradiologists would identify it more frequently than body imagers and on spine images more commonly than abdominopelvic studies due to the search for the source of back pain in the former.

Minimally Invasive Versus Open Sacroiliac Joint Fusion: Are They Similarly Safe and Effective?

The sacroiliac joint has been implicated as a source of chronic low back pain in 15% to 30% of patients. When nonsurgical approaches fail, sacroiliac joint fusion may be recommended. Advances in intra...

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction as a reason for the development of acetabular retroversion: a new theory.

Abstract Acetabular retroversion has been recently implicated as an important factor in the development of femoral acetabular impingement and hip osteoarthritis. The proper function of the hip joint r...

Safety and 6-month effectiveness of minimally invasive sacroiliac joint fusion: a prospective study.

Sacroiliac (SI) joint pain is an often overlooked cause of low back pain. SI joint arthrodesis has been reported to relieve pain and improve quality of life in patients suffering from degeneration or...

Quantitative investigation of ligament strains during physical tests for sacroiliac joint pain using finite element analysis.

It may be assumed that the stability is affected when some ligaments are injured or loosened, and this joint instability causes sacroiliac joint pain. Several physical examinations have been used to d...

Pilot study of the impact sacroiliac joint manipulation has on walking kinematics using motion analysis technology.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of engaging in a series of larger studies measuring the effect of sacroiliac joint manipulation on walking kinematics using motion analysis te...

Amputation of a lower limb through the sacroiliac joint.

Aspiration of the contents of the uterus with a vacuum curette.

A chronic inflammatory condition affecting the axial joints, such as the SACROILIAC JOINT and other intervertebral or costovertebral joints. It occurs predominantly in young males and is characterized by pain and stiffness of joints (ANKYLOSIS) with inflammation at tendon insertions.

Inflammation of the SACROILIAC JOINT. It is characterized by lower back pain, especially upon walking, fever, UVEITIS; PSORIASIS; and decreased range of motion. Many factors are associated with and cause sacroiliitis including infection; injury to spine, lower back, and pelvis; DEGENERATIVE ARTHRITIS; and pregnancy.
