Stiffness or fixation of a joint; formation of a stiff joint.
The union of two or more separate bones to from a single bone; the close union of bones or other structures in various animals.
abnormal adhesion and rigidity of the bones of a joint.
Same as Anchylosis.
Abnormal immobility of a tooth, where it becomes directly attached to the bone.
fixation of a joint, often in an abnormal position, such as occurs in rheumatoid arthritis (from the Greek word agkylosis meaning bent condition)
severe or complete loss of movement at a joint
The fusion of a joint.
An abnormal adhesion and rigidity of the bones in a joint. When used in the context of temporomandibular joint, it is also known as "fusing" and affects both the fossa-eminence and the condyle.
from the Greek angkylos, crooked]: Fusing of a joint.
Term used to describe teeth that have become fused to bone and cannot be moved orthodontically
Loss of mobility in a joint, caused by bony deposits of calcium in the joints
Stiffening or fixation of a joint as the result of a disease process, with fibrous or bony union across the joint.
means stiffening or fixation of a joint with fibrous or bony tissue buildup across the joint.
teeth that do not fully erupt because they are attached to the bone
Stiffness or, more often, fusion of a joint. From the Greek ankylsis, meaning stiffening of a joint.
Fusion, which may be fibrous, or bony (as in AS).
A condition that is one of immobility and solidification of joints because of disease, injury, or a surgical procedure.
(1) To become stiff of fixated by disease or surgery. (2) The union of two separated hard parts to form a single part. Often used to describe teeth that became fused to bone resulting in their failure to erupt.
immobility of a joint
Fixation of a joint leading to immobility, due to ossification or bony deposits of calcium at joints.
Spontaneous or surgically-induced stiffness or rigidity of a joint's natural mobility. Abnormal stiffness or immobility of an articulation. ( ankylose, n.f)
A condition where two hard tissues are fused together. When this happens to a tooth and the alveolar bone, the tooth partially erupts and difficult to be extracted. Usually result from bone diseases, trauma or surgery.
Abnormal stiffening of a joint.
Ankylosis, or Anchylosis (from Greek Î±Î³ÎºÏ…Î»Î¿Ï‚, bent, crooked) is a stiffness of a joint, the result of injury or disease. The rigidity may be complete or partial and may be due to inflammation of the tendinous or muscular structures outside the joint or of the tissues of the joint itself. When the structures outside the joint are affected, the term "false" ankylosis has been used in contradistinction to "true" ankylosis, in which the disease is within the joint.
