  • neurovascular
  • Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome is a condition in which compression of the popliteal neurovascular structures results in symptoms of lower extremity claudication by way of a constricting anatomic structure or a hypertrophied surrounding musculature. (healio.com)
  • Spinal
  • Spinal muscular atrophy with lower extremity predominance (SMA-LED) is an extremely rare neuromuscular disorder of infants characterised by severe progressive muscle atrophy which is especially prominent in legs. (wikipedia.org)
  • A lower motor neuron exits to the sacral plexus exiting through the spinal levels L5-S2. (wikipedia.org)
  • In neurogenic claudication, positional changes lead to increased stenosis (narrowing) of the spinal canal and compression of nerve roots and resultant lower extremity symptoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • Common causes of sciatica include the following lower back and hip conditions: spinal disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, lumbar spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and piriformis syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nerves
  • The brachial plexus is a bundle of nerves innervating the shoulder and arm and can be blocked at different levels depending on the type of upper extremity surgery being performed. (wikipedia.org)
  • reconstruction
  • The gracilis microsurgical free flap is commonly used in the reconstruction of upper and lower limbs, in breast reconstruction and - as a free functioning flap - to restore forearm function or in dynamic reconstruction of facial paralysis.Gracilis Muscles Clinical Role The muscle may be split to reduce bulk for facial reanimation, as well as to repair hand muscles.

  • Back
  • Back of left lower extremity. (wikipedia.org)
  • The circular fibers, the zona orbicularis, are most abundant at the lower and back part of the capsule where they form a sling or collar around the femoral neck. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, when doing a sit-up that brings the torso (including the lower back) away from the ground and towards the front of the leg, the hip flexors (including the iliopsoas) will flex the spine upon the pelvis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tightness of the psoas can result in spasms or lower back pain by compressing the lumbar discs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Treatment
  • The International Journal of Lower Extremity Wounds is interdisciplinary and aims to appeal to a wide audience of those involved in the treatment and research of lower extremity wounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • The initial treatment for venous thromboembolism is typically with either low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) or unfractionated heparin. (wikipedia.org)
  • popliteal
  • Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome was first described as an abnormal course of the popliteal artery that may result in limited blood flow during muscle contractions, leading to intermittent claudication or pain in the lower leg that is relieved with rest. (healio.com)
  • muscle
  • from this aponeurosis, muscular fibers arise, and converge to another aponeurosis which covers the lower part of the posterior surface of the muscle and contracts into the tendon of insertion. (wikipedia.org)
