Abstract

Heterotopic ossification (HO) is a frequent complication in spinal cord injury (SCI) that is often difficult to treat. the incidence ranges from 16-35%. Association of certain complications in spinal cord injury increases the incidence of HO. This is a cross-sectional study conducted at SVNIRTAR, Cuttack, Odisha from January 2009 to December 2014. Out of 132 SCI patients attended to OPD or admitted to SCI ward, HO at different site was diagnosed in 86 patients. A close observation was done on these patients with respect to their associated complications and their relation to development of HO is discussed.
