What nerve was injured? Pt presents with loss of dorsiflexion resulting in "foot drop"
Common peroneal nerve (L4-S2) PED= Peroneal Everts & Dorsiflexes; if injured, foot is dropPED
Deep peroneal nn innervates _______ compartment Superficial peroneal nn innervates _______ compartment
anterior lateral
What nn is injured? pt presents with loss of plantar flexion.
Tibial (L4-S3) TIP=Tibial Inverts & Plantarflexes; if injured, cant stand on TIPtoes.
What nn is damaged? Pt presents with loss of knee extension and deminished pateller reflex.
Femoral (L2-L4)
What nn is injured? Pt presents with a loss of hip adduction?
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear
Positive anterior drawer sign [lower leg pulled forward with knee flexed): often manifests as terrible triad" li.e. torn medial collateral ligament medial meniscus damage and torn ACL) "
Clavicle fracture
Middle third of clavicle; upward displacement of proximal fragment; downward displacement of distal fragment: severe pain
Compartment syndrome
Fascial sheets separate the limbs into anterior and posterior compartments; hemorrhage into these compartments. owing to crush injury or fracture, results in compression of neurovascular structures and further complications; surgical emergency
Inversion sprain of ankle
Most common ankle injury; results from forced inversion; stretches or tears lateral ligaments (especially the anterior talofibular)
Scaphoid fracture
Tenderness in the anatomic snuffbox; may lead to avascular necrosis if left untreated; easily missed on radiographs
Scol iosis
Complex lateral deviation and torsion of the spine; may be idiopathic or congenital, or may result from a short leg, hip displacement, or polio
Shoulder separation
Downward displacement of the clavicle as a result of laxity of the acromioclavicular and coracoclavicular ligaments
Subacromial bursitis
Inflammation of the subacromial bursa; most common bursitis in the body
Tennis etbow
Sprain of radial collateral ligament (lateral epicondyle); pain on wrist extension and forearm supination
Waddling gait
Limp caused by superior gluteal nenre injury affecting gluteus medius and gluteus minimus; inability to abduct thigh; results in Trendelenburg sign
