Intraarticular lidocaine was not used, so it is unlikely a result of chondrolysis
No avascular necrosis was found and there were no cases of chondrolysis
One 19-year-old patient's course was complicated by chondrolysis
and went on to total joint arthroplasty.
24) It was postulated that the damage of germinal cells of the physis by either ischemia or direct chondrolysis
causes retarded or accelerated growth of the affected bone segments.
Follow-up MRI was done in all of them immediately after reduction, then at 6 and 18 months to diagnose any labral tear or physeal injuries and also evaluate for any occurrence of chondrolysis
That is, use of local anesthetics intra-articularly is an off label use that now carries a warning for potential risk of chondrolysis
by the FDA (Beyzadeoglu et al.
after shoulder arthroscopy: a case series.
Recently, autologous biologic therapy was successfully used to address the problem of chondrolysis
in the shoulder.
Concern about the connection between pain pump use in joints and chondrolysis
has been evident since the late 1990s.
Reduced joint-function secondary to severe pathological changes such as extensive chondrolysis
, proliferative synovitis, and haemorrhagic synovitis have been reported after the accidental use of chlorhexidine for irrigation during arthroscopy (Douw et al 1998).
Untreated or delayed treatment of SCFE is associated with significant morbidity, including osteonecrosis, chondrolysis
, and chronic pain and deformity.
Cases of chondrolysis
