Palmar Fibromatosis

Palmar fibromatosis, also known as Dupuytren’s contracture, is a condition characterized by the progressive thickening and contracture of the palmar fascia, a layer of tissue located beneath the skin of the palm and fingers. This condition can lead to the formation of nodules or cords, resulting in the curling of the fingers towards the palm. Read More >>>>

Dupuytren’s Diathesis

Dupuytren’s diathesis, also known as Dupuytren’s disease or Dupuytren’s contracture, is a progressive condition that affects the hands and fingers. It is characterized by the formation of thickened cords of tissue beneath the skin, which can lead to the fingers becoming permanently bent or contracted. In this article, we will provide a comprehensive explanation of Read More >>>>


Dystonia falls under the classification of movement disorders and is characterized by either sustained or intermittent contraction of a muscle or involuntary maintained contraction of agonist and antagonist muscles yielding abnormal posturing, twisting and repetitive movements, or tremulous and can be initiated or worsened by attempted movement. This leads to abnormal repetitive movements or postures Read More >>>>


Osteopetrosis is a rare disorder that causes bones to grow abnormally and become overly dense. When bones become overly dense, they are brittle and can fracture (break) easily. In addition, bones may be misshapen and large, causing other problems in the body. For example, changes to the bone size and density of the skull can Read More >>>>

Types of Musculoskeletal Injuries

The musculoskeletal system consists of bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and intervertebral discs, as well as their associated nerves and blood vessels, and is powered by the complex interrelationship between these separate structures, each of which depends on the other to function properly. Musculoskeletal injuries are common and, hence, are routinely seen in the emergency department. Read More >>>>

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

Patellofemoral pain syndrome is pain at the front of your knee, around your kneecap (patella). Sometimes called “runner’s knee,” it’s more common in people who participate in sports that involve running and jumping. Patellofemoral syndrome can cause symptoms that range from uncomfortable to very painful, the condition can usually be treated at home. You may Read More >>>>

Patellar Tendinitis

Patellar tendinitis is inflammation or irritation of a tendon the thick fibrous cords that attach muscle to the bone of the patella, and injury to the tendon connecting your kneecap (patella) to your shinbone. The patellar tendon works with the muscles at the front of your thigh to extend your knee so that you can Read More >>>>

Quad Tendon Rupture

Quadriceps tendon rupture is an injury that occurs when the tendon attaches the quadriceps muscle (a group of 4 muscles in the front part of the femur) to the patella or kneecap tears. The quadriceps tendon may be partially or completely torn. Quadriceps tendon rupture is a rare but serious injury. If this injury is not Read More >>>>

Dislocated Kneecap

A dislocated kneecap is a common injury that normally takes about 6 weeks to heal. Kneecap subluxation or dislocation may occur more than once. The first few times it happens will be painful, and you will be unable to walk. If subluxations continue to occur and are not treated, you may feel less pain when they happen. However, there Read More >>>>

Tibiofemoral Dislocations

A dislocated knee (tibiofemoral dislocation) is rarer and more serious than a dislocated kneecap, because of the force required to misalign the leg bones and the damage, it does to the ligaments. A tibiofemoral dislocation is a formal name for a dislocated knee. It’s a fairly rare injury, but a serious one. On the inner side is Read More >>>>

Infrapatellar Fat Pad Impingement

Infrapatellar fat pad syndrome is when your fat pad becomes pinched (impinged) between your kneecap and thigh bone, or your thigh and shin bones. It’s also known as infrapatellar fat pad impingement. Your infrapatellar fat pad has a rich supply of nerves, so impingement can be very painful. Infrapatellar fat pad impingement can occur for many Read More >>>>

Zygomatic Complex Fracture

A zygomatic complex fracture is also known as a tripod, tetrapod, quadruped, malar, or trimalar fracture that involves the zygoma and its surrounding bones. The typical lines of a zygomatic complex fracture are A fracture emanating from the inferior orbital fissure superiorly along the sphenozygomatic suture to the frontozygomatic suture where it crosses the lateral orbital rim.
