According to them, it is characterized by increased thoracic kyphosis of the spine, accompanied by a shortening of the pectoral muscles and lumbar lordosis depth with contracture of the iliopsoas muscles
Computed tomography scan reveals (A) a low-attenuation lesion on the right iliopsoas muscle
(white arrow) and (B) a low-attenuation lesion on the right pyriformis muscle (black arrow).
reported that hemorrhage into the iliacus, psoas, and iliopsoas muscles
was an infrequent complication of anticoagulant therapy and usually occurred unilaterally (7).
96) for all muscle length measurements using the electronic goniometer with the exception of iliopsoas muscle
length measurements (ICC=0.
After extensive search in Medline-Pubmed, Cochrane, and Imbiomed, no reports were found in the literature of cases of persistent femoral neuropathy secondary to a hematoma of the iliopsoas muscle
due to hemophilia treated by tendinous transference of the biceps.
We used a wrap object similar to one in the Arnold model to prevent the iliopsoas muscle
path from intersecting the pelvis and femoral head.
In terms of physical risk factors, there were between-group differences in favour of the experimental group in hamstring and iliopsoas muscle
length and neural mobility and these were largely maintained 3 months later whereas there were no statistically significant between-group differences in rectus femoris length, lumbar stability or proprioception (Table 2).
Pathologist Dr Jennifer Hamilton gave the cause of death as Iliopsoas muscle
haemorrhage due to anticoagulation therapy, with heart disease as a contributory factor.
In women, significant associations were found between injurious falls and reduced iliopsoas muscle
strength, impaired gait, a small mid-arm circumference, impaired orthostatic reaction, short step length, the use of more than four medications and the use of long-acting benzodiazepines, calcium blockers (and also separately: the use of verapamil, nifedipine or diltiazem), drugs for improving peripheral circulation, anti-inflammatory and antidiabetic drugs.
Classified as either spontaneous or traumatic,  iliopsoas muscle
haematomas are rare lesions that typically appear in individuals presenting with clotting difficulties, whether due to illnesses, such as haemophilia  and other blood disorders, or as a result of anticoagulant treatment.
An MRI scan of abdomen is taken which showed chronic collection in right iliac fossa extending to iliopsoas muscle
and sub cutaneous plane of right gluteal region.
A CT was again performed revealing a significant enlargement of the iliopsoas muscle
at the same location [Figure 1]c and f, suggesting relapse of the abscess.
In the muscle weakness group, 5 patients had iliopsoas muscle
weakness, 2 patients had gluteus medius muscle weakness and 8 patients had iliopsoas muscle
and other muscle weakness.
Although, abdominal ultrasound was found to be normal, computed tomography of the abdominal cavity showed bilateral psoas abscess that extended to pectineus muscle and also involved the iliopsoas muscle
on the right.
Some of the conditions involving the iliopsoas muscle
include lower back pain, sacroiliac pain, sciatica, disc trauma, scoliosis, hip and knee pain, menstrual pain and digestive problems.
