 en Femoral nerve palsy secondary to iliopsoas hemorrhage in patients with hemophilia: Results from biceps femoral transfer
Vergara-Amador, Enrique; Piña-Quintero, Marcela; Galván-Villamarín, Fernando & Abril-Aguilar, Camilo

Abstract

Hemophilia causes injuries of peripheral nerves secondary to compressions by hematoma. In general, these injuries recover spontaneously after the cause of the compression is solved. A case of a 16-year-old adolescent with injury of the left femoral nerve, causing loss of the extension of the knee is described herein. During the evolution there was no recovery. For this reason a tendinous transfer of the femoral biceps was practiced. This technique was described formerly for the correction of poliomyelitis. Excellent results were obtained with complete recovery of the extension and force 4+ / 5.

Keywords

 es Parálisis del nervio femoral secundario a hemorragia del psoas ilíaco en paciente con hemofilia: resultado de transferencia del bíceps femoral
Vergara-Amador, Enrique; Piña-Quintero, Marcela; Galván-Villamarín, Fernando & Abril-Aguilar, Camilo

Resumen

La hemofilia causa lesiones de nervio periférico secundarias a compresiones por hematoma. En general estas lesiones se recuperan espontáneamente después de resolverse la causa de la compresión. Se describe el caso de un adolescente de 16 años con lesión del nervio femoral izquierdo que ocasionó la pérdida de la extensión en la rodilla. Como durante la evolución no hubo recuperación, se hizo una transferencia tendinosa del bíceps femoral, técnica descrita antiguamente para correcciones en poliomielitis. Hubo un excelente resultado con recuperación completa de la extensión y fuerza 4+/5.

Palabras-clave
Hemofilia; Nervio femoral; Hemorragia; Psoas ilíaco.
