Arthrogryposis and Amyoplasia

Mohammed T. Attiah, MD

November 10th- 2003


Definition
Definition

  • Arthrogryposis

    • Group of unrelated diseases with the common phenotypic characteristic of multiple congenital joint contractures

  • Amyoplasia “Symmetric contractures” = AMC

    • IR shoulder

    • Extended elbow, flexed hand and wrist

    • Knee “extended or flexed”

    • Talipes equinovarus

    • Dislocated hips….

      Stern WG: Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita. JAMA 1923


Epidemiology etiology
Epidemiology & Etiology

  • AG- 1:3,000 AP- 1:10,000

  • Arthrogryposis is multifactorial etiology:

    • Fetal akinesia,Curare Injection.Drachman DB, Lancet 1962

    • Viral infection, alkaloid ingestion

    • Hyperthermia, Oligohydromanios, AHC defect, Myopathy

  • Amyoplasia is sporadic ??“Genetic”

    • Larsen’s syndrome

    • Distal arthrogryposis type I & II


Differential diagnosis
Differential Diagnosis

  • Full H & P and limbs-spine x-ray

  • Amyoplasia is relatively easy to recognize

  • Spine x-ray “spinal dysraphism”

  • CPK “Congenital M Dystrophy”

  • CT brain “Structural brain anomalies”

  • Chromosomal studies, experienced geneticist

  • Muscle biopsy and EMG ??? myopathy


Amyoplasia
Amyoplasia

  • Four limbs 84%

  • Lower limbs 11%

  • Upper limbs 5% Sells JM,. Pediatrics 1996

  • Joint have limited ROM, firm,and inelastic end point

  • Trunk generally spared, although scoliosis 30% Sarwark JF, J bone Joint Surg Am 1990


Amyoplasia1
Amyoplasia

  • Muscle mass

  • Fusiform limbs

  • Lack of normal skin creases over the joint

  • Webbing across elbow & knees

  • Skin dimpling on the extensor muscle

  • Sensation N, DTR diminished or absent

  • Midline facial hemangioma and micrognathia

  • Inguinal hernia, cryptochridism

  • Abdominal wall defect, Gastrochisis, Bowel atresia


General management
General Management

  • Overall function is related to

    • Family support

    • Patient personality

    • Education early efforts to foster independence

      Carlson WO,. Clin Orthop 1985

  • Parents “Walking”

    • Helps parents focus on factors that will substantially improve the child’s function

    • Upper extremities Vs Lower extremities


General management1
General Management

  • Gentle stretching and ROM exercise

    • Lightweight splinting “ acceptable joint position “

  • Casting or ST release and casting

  • Muscle transfer

    • Nonfunctioning muscles ??

    • Functioning muscles “ limited excursion “

  • Osteotomy

    • Skeletal maturity “Recurrence of the deformity “


Upper extremity deformities
Upper Extremity Deformities

  • Provide an extremity that can be brought to the mouth and stabilized for feeding and to provide for toilet care or pulling up from sitting position Williams PF, Clin Orthop 1985

  • Where is the problem:

    • Shoulder IR ? osteotomy

    • Lack of active elbow flexion ± elbow extension contractures


Non surgical treatment
Non-Surgical Treatment

  • Passive stretching is most successful to obtain motion

    • Shoulder, wrist and fingers are the most resistant

    • Elbow stretching

      • Mild change in ROM will substantially improve the ability to

        • Dress

        • Self-feed

        • Personal hygiene

      • Passive elbow flexion “TRICKS “


Surgical management of the upper extremity deformities
Surgical Management of the Upper extremity Deformities

  • Defer most surgery until the patient is old enough to demonstrate functional achievement Lloyd-Roberts GC,,, J Bone Joint 1970


Elbow contractures
Elbow Contractures

  • Elbow flexion < 90° with supervised elbow stretching

    • Posterior capsulotomy with triceps lengthening

    • Post-op passive elbow flexion maintained for two years

    • Intra-articular incongruity ???

      Van Heest A, J Hand Surg 1998


Tendon transfer indications
Tendon Transfer Indications

  • Age > 4

  • Lack of active flexion

  • Minimum of 90° passive elbow flexion

  • Ipsilateral hand motion

  • Absent contralateral active elbow flexion

  • Available donor muscle

  • Triceps-to-biceps transfer gives most reliable results Van Heest A,. J Hand Surg 1998

    Contraindication: Ambulate or transfer in lower limbs involved child Complication: Elbow flexion contractures Carroll RE, JBJS 1970


  • Elbow contractures1
    Elbow Contractures

    • P. Major transfer

      • Best donor in the absence of triceps

      • Large surgical scar “ sternum to anticubital fossa”

      • Breast asymmetry

        Schottstaedt ER, J Bone Joint Surg 1955

    • Steindler Flexorplasty

      • Flexor tendon are weak Doyle JR,. J Hand Surgery 1980


    Wrist deformities
    Wrist Deformities

    • Early release and casting for wrist flexion contractures

      • Wrist extensor are absent

      • FCU only functioning muscle

    • FCU transfer will give wrist extension

      • Passive ROM “neutral”

      • Quengel cast hinge

    • PRC and tendon transfer

    • Wrist fusion


    Feet deformities
    Feet Deformities

    • Rigid clubfeet

      • Aggressive ST release “ not lengthening “ before walking

      • Complete correction intra-op

      • Long-term bracing, night bracing, AFO

      • Recurrence rate 70%

        Niki H, J Pediatr Orthop 1997


    Relapsed clubfoot
    Relapsed Clubfoot

    • Talectomy

      • Primary procedures in severe cases

        • Tibiocalcaneal incongruity

        • Loss medial column

        • Failed CC fusion-------- Midfoot Adduction

        • Reduce ST -------Foot dorsiflexion Green ADL, J Bone Joint Surg [Br] 1984


    Relapsed clubfoot1
    Relapsed Clubfoot

    • Verebelyi-Ogston procedure “ Talus Decancellation”

      • Maintain medial column

      • Avoid progressive midfoot adduction

      • Easier triple Spires TD, J Pediatr Orthop 1984


    Relapsed clubfoot2
    Relapsed Clubfoot

    • Circular-Frame Fixator

      • Tech. Demanding, good results

      • Trans-epiphyseal pin locked to the tibial frame “ Epi. separation”

      • Incision parallel to the direction of distraction

        Brunner R, J Pediatr Orthop B 1997


    Knee deformities
    Knee Deformities

    • Most difficult

    • FC > EC

    • 50% FC pt = community walker

    • 10% EC pt = community walker

      Murray C, J Pediatr Orthop B 1997


    Treatment of knee flexion contractures
    Treatment of Knee Flexion Contractures

    • Stretching

    • Bracing

    • Casting “ ? posterior tibia dislocation”

    • Quengel hinge

      • Point of rotation

      • Tibia move forward with extension


    Treatment of flexion contractures surgical
    Treatment of Flexion Contractures “Surgical”

    • Posterior ST release ± shortening osteotomy

      • Muscles planes “ fibrous dens cord “

      • No tornique “ facilitate vascular dissection”

      • II incision PM & PL, avoid S-incision

    • Anterior release

      • PF adhesion “Rug under the door”

      • Medial patellar incision

      • Gradual correction

      • Full correction….. ??NV structure

      • Hyperextension = Hypertension


    Recurrent knee contractures
    Recurrent Knee contractures

    • Supracondylar extension osteotomy ± shortening

      • Immediate correction

      • Dog leg-type deformity

      • Cosmetically unacceptable

      • Recurrence 1°/month in Sk immature patients

        DelBello DA, J Pediatr Orthop 1996


    Knee extension contractures
    Knee Extension Contractures

    • Walk well

    • Sitting difficulty

    • Difficulty rising from a chair

    • Treatment:

      • Quads percutaneous release + casting

      • Quadricepslasty + Knee open reduction


    Hip deformities
    Hip Deformities

    • Hip problems in arthrogryposis 65-80%

    • Flexion contractures common, dislocation 15-30% Sarwark JF, J Bone Joint Surg Am 1990

    • Hip FC ----Lumbar lordosis

    • ER contractures “Do not correct” = gait stability

    • Hip FC > 45° ---- surgical release


    Hip dislocation
    Hip Dislocation

    • Teratologic

    • Poor results with CR

    • Options

      • Acceptance of dislocation

      • Open reduction “ medial or anterior “

  • well-performed open reduction

    • Redislocation, stiffness, and AVN

      Szoke G, J Pediatr Orthop 1996

      Cruel CR, J Pedaitr Orthop 1986


  • Twenty-Years F/U of Hip Problems in Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita, Peter W.P. Yau, JPO 2002, Hong Kong

    • Unilateral hip dislocation

      • Openly reduced hips are stiffer

        • 121° Vs 103°

      • Long term hip function score was comparable

        • 69 Vs 73; P= 0.174


    Hip dislocation1
    Hip Dislocation Congenita,

    • Unilateral dislocation should perform open reduction 6-12

    • Best results with medial approach

      Szoke G, J Pediatr Orthop 1996

      Cruel CR, J Pedaitr Orthop 1986

    • Bilateral dislocation ??????

      • Supple hip that is dislocated is preferable to a reduced but stiff hip


    Spine deformities
    Spine Deformities Congenita,

    • Scoliosis 30-67%

    • Poor prognosis for progression:

      • Early curve onset

      • Paralytic curve pattern

      • Pelvic obliquity

    • Quiet stiff curve

    • Posterior fusion = 35% correction

    • Post + Ant. = 44% correction

    • Pseudo-arthrosis 15- 30%

      Yingsakmongkol W, J Pediatr Orthop 2000


    Arthrogryposis
    Arthrogryposis Congenita,

    • Hips & Foot deformities

      • Early and aggressive with surgical treatment


    Arthrogryposis1
    Arthrogryposis Congenita,

    • Knee deformities

      • Be cautious with surgical treatment


    Arthrogryposis2
    Arthrogryposis Congenita,
