How does strengthening of the whole group gluteus medius and minimus influence activity in other abductor muscles?
Electromyographic data of this study demonstrate that gluteus medius and tensor fascia latae, who behaved in a similar way considering muscle activation, showed significant difference at time IR between the evaluated sessions for DG and HG, and at time FR for DG.
Combing with the significant reduction of muscle strength in gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and posterior group, it could be speculated that the degree of fat infiltration was consistent with the muscle strength.
In this case, even though fasciotomy was performed and a dusky gluteus medius had return of color intraoperatively, the sciatic nerve was, in all likelihood, already severely damaged.
Involvement of gluteus medius and minimus may cause mild to moderate abductor weakness leading to abductor lurch as was seen in our case, Involvement of the hip joint is very rare, Chronic, untreated cases may present with discharging sinus on the lateral aspect of the hip, In our case, progressive increase in pain and swelling over the left greater trochanter region for past 2 months were the presenting complaints with healed scar over the swelling (history of incision and drainage 10 years back for similar complaints), Radiographs may be normal initially but show erosion or lytic lesion of the greater trochanter in later stages, MRI is the investigation of choice as it helps in defining the size and extent of soft tissue mass along with the bony involvement (6).
