Abdominal Muscles: Muscles forming the ABDOMINAL WALL including RECTUS ABDOMINIS, external and internal oblique muscles, transversus abdominis, and quadratus abdominis. (from Stedman, 25th ed)Muscles: Contractile tissue that produces movement in animals.Rectus Abdominis: A long flat muscle that extends along the whole length of both sides of the abdomen. It flexes the vertebral column, particularly the lumbar portion; it also tenses the anterior abdominal wall and assists in compressing the abdominal contents. It is frequently the site of hematomas. In reconstructive surgery it is often used for the creation of myocutaneous flaps. (From Gray's Anatomy, 30th American ed, p491)Diaphragm: The musculofibrous partition that separates the THORACIC CAVITY from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY. Contraction of the diaphragm increases the volume of the thoracic cavity aiding INHALATION.Electromyography: Recording of the changes in electric potential of muscle by means of surface or needle electrodes.Respiratory Muscles: These include the muscles of the DIAPHRAGM and the INTERCOSTAL MUSCLES.Muscle Contraction: A process leading to shortening and/or development of tension in muscle tissue.

Skeletal muscles are innervated and their movement can be consciously controlled. They are also called voluntary muscles.Intercostal Nerves: The ventral rami of the thoracic nerves from segments T1 through T11. The intercostal nerves supply motor and sensory innervation to the thorax and abdomen. The skin and muscles supplied by a given pair are called, respectively, a dermatome and a myotome.Abdominal Wall: The outer margins of the ABDOMEN, extending from the osteocartilaginous thoracic cage to the PELVIS. Though its major part is muscular, the abdominal wall consists of at least seven layers: the SKIN, subcutaneous fat, deep FASCIA; ABDOMINAL MUSCLES, transversalis fascia, extraperitoneal fat, and the parietal PERITONEUM.Muscle Proteins: The protein constituents of muscle, the major ones being ACTINS and MYOSINS. More than a dozen accessory proteins exist including TROPONIN; TROPOMYOSIN; and DYSTROPHIN.Intercostal Muscles: Respiratory muscles that arise from the lower border of one rib and insert into the upper border of the adjoining rib, and contract during inspiration or respiration.

It includes airflow, lung volume, neural and reflex controls, mechanoreceptors, breathing patterns, etc.Pressure: A type of stress exerted uniformly in all directions. Its measure is the force exerted per unit area. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)Muscle Fatigue: A state arrived at through prolonged and strong contraction of a muscle. Studies in athletes during prolonged submaximal exercise have shown that muscle fatigue increases in almost direct proportion to the rate of muscle glycogen depletion. Muscle fatigue in short-term maximal exercise is associated with oxygen lack and an increased level of blood and muscle lactic acid, and an accompanying increase in hydrogen-ion concentration in the exercised muscle.Muscle Fibers, Skeletal: Large, multinucleate single cells, either cylindrical or prismatic in shape, that form the basic unit of SKELETAL MUSCLE. They consist of MYOFIBRILS enclosed within and attached to the SARCOLEMMA. They are derived from the fusion of skeletal myoblasts (MYOBLASTS, SKELETAL) into a syncytium, followed by differentiation.Muscle, Smooth, Vascular: The nonstriated involuntary muscle tissue of blood vessels.Respiration: The act of breathing with the LUNGS, consisting of INHALATION, or the taking into the lungs of the ambient air, and of EXHALATION, or the expelling of the modified air which contains more CARBON DIOXIDE than the air taken in (Blakiston's Gould Medical Dictionary, 4th ed.). This does not include tissue respiration (= OXYGEN CONSUMPTION) or cell respiration (= CELL RESPIRATION).Posture: The position or attitude of the body.Positive-Pressure Respiration, Intrinsic: Non-therapeutic positive end-expiratory pressure occurring frequently in patients with severe airway obstruction. It can appear with or without the administration of external positive end-expiratory pressure (POSITIVE-PRESSURE RESPIRATION). It presents an important load on the inspiratory muscles which are operating at a mechanical disadvantage due to hyperinflation. Auto-PEEP may cause profound hypotension that should be treated by intravascular volume expansion, increasing the time for expiration, and/or changing from assist mode to intermittent mandatory ventilation mode. (From Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 12th ed, p1127)Inhalation: The act of BREATHING in.Nephropidae: Family of large marine CRUSTACEA, in the order DECAPODA. These are called clawed lobsters because they bear pincers on the first three pairs of legs. The American lobster and Cape lobster in the genus Homarus are commonly used for food.Muscle Development: Developmental events leading to the formation of adult muscular system, which includes differentiation of the various types of muscle cell precursors, migration of myoblasts, activation of myogenesis and development of muscle anchorage.Abdominal Cavity: The region in the abdomen extending from the thoracic DIAPHRAGM to the plane of the superior pelvic aperture (pelvic inlet). The abdominal cavity contains the PERITONEUM and abdominal VISCERA, as well as the extraperitoneal space which includes the RETROPERITONEAL SPACE.Lordosis: The anterior concavity in the curvature of the lumbar and cervical spine as viewed from the side. The term usually refers to abnormally increased curvature (hollow back, saddle back, swayback). It does not include lordosis as normal mating posture in certain animals ( = POSTURE + SEX BEHAVIOR, ANIMAL).Thorax: The upper part of the trunk between the NECK and the ABDOMEN.

Desmoid tumour. The risk of recurrent or new disease with subsequent pregnancy: a case report. (1/508)

Desmoid tumours are rare, benign tumours arising from fibrous tissue in muscle fascia or aponeurosis. They are most common in women of child-bearing age and most often appear during or after pregnancy in this age group. The recommended treatment is wide surgical excision, if possible, but unresectable tumours may be treated with radiotherapy, anticancer drugs, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents or antiestrogenic compounds. The recurrence rate is high and seems to be related to the achievement of resection margins free of tumour. The literature is not specific about how to counsel women who have had a desmoid tumour and subsequently wish to have a child. Patients should be advised that these tumours may be estrogen sensitive but subsequent pregnancy is not necessarily a risk factor for recurrence or development of new disease.  (+info)

Antinociceptive properties of the new alkaloid, cis-8, 10-di-N-propyllobelidiol hydrochloride dihydrate isolated from Siphocampylus verticillatus: evidence for the mechanism of action. (2/508)

The antinociceptive action of the alkaloid cis-8, 10-di-n-propyllobelidiol hydrochloride dehydrate (DPHD), isolated from Siphocampylus verticillatus, given i.p., p.o., i.t., or i.c.v., was assessed in chemical and thermal models of nociception in mice, such as acetic acid-induced abdominal constriction, formalin- and capsaicin-induced licking, and hot-plate and tail-flick tests. DPHD given by i.p., p.o., i.t., or i.c.v. elicited significant and dose-related antinociception. At the ID50 level, DPHD was about 2- to 39-fold more potent than aspirin and dipyrone, but it was about 14- to 119-fold less potent than morphine. Its analgesic action was reversed by treatment of animals with p-chlorophenylalanine, naloxone, cyprodime, naltrindole, nor-binaltrorphimine, L-arginine, or pertussis toxin. Its action was also modulated by adrenal-gland hormones but was not affected by gamma-aminobutyric acid type A or type B antagonist, bicuculine, or phaclofen, nor was it affected by glibenclamide. DPHD, given daily for up to 7 days, did not develop tolerance to itself nor did it induce cross-tolerance to morphine. However, animals rendered tolerant to morphine presented cross-tolerance to DPHD. The antinociception of DPHD was not secondary to its anti-inflammatory effect, nor was it associated with nonspecific effects such as muscle relaxation or sedation. DPHD, in contrast to morphine, did not decrease charcoal meal transit in mice, nor did it inhibit electrical field stimulation of the guinea pig ileum or mouse vas deferens in vitro. Thus, DPHD produces dose-dependent and pronounced systemic, spinal, and supraspinal antinociception in mice, including against the neurogenic nociception induced by formalin and capsaicin. Its antinociceptive effect involves multiple mechanisms of action, namely interaction with mu, delta, or kappa opioid systems, L-arginine-nitric oxide and serotonin pathways, activation of Gi protein sensitive to pertussis toxin, and modulation by endogenous glucocorticoids.  (+info)

Lymphangiosarcomas in cats: a retrospective study of 12 cases. (3/508)

Clinical, macroscopic, and histologic features of 12 lymphangiosarcomas in cats are described. Nine tumors were located in the subcutaneous tissue at the caudoventral abdominal wall (eight cats) or in the neck (one cat). The remaining three cats had lymphangiosarcomas around the cranial mesenteric artery (two cats) or precardial in the mediastinum (one cat). Macroscopically, the tumors were noncircumscribed, white, edematous, and intermixed with fat tissue. Histologic features varied from cleft-forming and cavernous growth to papilliform and solid patterns. Follow-up data were available for seven cats with subcutaneous lymphangiosarcomas. All these cats died or were euthanatized within 6 months after surgery because of poor wound healing, local recurrence, or distant metastases. The cats with abdominal or thoracic masses were either euthanatized at surgery or within 6 months after the first surgery because of recurrent chylothorax, chyloperitoneum, or distant metastases.  (+info)

Congenital hernia of the abdominal wall: a differential diagnosis of fetal abdominal wall defects. (4/508)

A 28-year-old woman was referred at 33 weeks of gestation with suspected fetal intestinal atresia. Sonography showed a large extra-abdominal mass on the right of the normal umbilical cord insertion. Following Cesarean section at 36 weeks and immediate surgical treatment, the malformation was not definable either as an omphalocele or as gastroschisis. This reported case involves a previously undocumented malformation of the fetal abdominal wall described as a 'hernia' of the fetal abdominal wall.  (+info)

Posture effects on timing of abdominal muscle activity during stimulated ventilation. (5/508)

In humans during stimulated ventilation, substantial abdominal muscle activity extends into the following inspiration as postexpiratory expiratory activity (PEEA) and commences again during late inspiration as preexpiratory expiratory activity (PREA). We hypothesized that the timing of PEEA and PREA would be changed systematically by posture. Fine-wire electrodes were inserted into the rectus abdominis, external oblique, internal oblique, and transversus abdominis in nine awake subjects. Airflow, end-tidal CO2, and moving average electromyogram (EMG) signals were recorded during resting and CO2-stimulated ventilation in both supine and standing postures. Phasic expiratory EMG activity (tidal EMG) of the four abdominal muscles at any level of CO2 stimulation was greater while standing. Abdominal muscle activities during inspiration, PEEA, and PREA, were observed with CO2 stimulation, both supine and standing. Change in posture had a significant effect on intrabreath timing of expiratory muscle activation at any level of CO2 stimulation. The transversus abdominis showed a significant increase in PEEA and a significant decrease in PREA while subjects were standing; similar changes were seen in the internal oblique. We conclude that changes in posture are associated with significant changes in phasic expiratory activity of the four abdominal muscles, with systematic changes in the timing of abdominal muscle activity during early and late inspiration.  (+info)

Hydrostatic and osmotic pressures modulate partitioning of tissue water in abdominal muscle during dialysis. (6/508)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effect of simultaneous exposure of anterior abdominal muscle (AAM) to changes in intraperitoneal hydrostatic pressure (Pip) and to osmolality of peritoneal fluid on total tissue water (TTW) and on the pattern of distribution of TTW in the AAM. DESIGN: A pilot study of single 60-min dwells in anesthetized Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats, dialyzed with either isotonic (290 mOsm/kg) or hypertonic (510 mOsm/kg) dialysis solutions at nominal Pip of 0 mmHg or 6 mmHg. MEASUREMENTS: TTW (from dry-weight-to-wet-weight ratios) can be divided into the extracellular volume [theta(ec), from quantitative autoradiography (QAR) with 14C-mannitol] and intracellular volume (theta(ic) = TTW - theta(ec)). Theta(ec) = theta(if) + theta(iv), where theta(if) = interstitial volume and theta(iv) = vascular volume [from QAR with 131I-immunoglobulin G (IgG)]. All measured parameters are standardized to tissue dry weight and expressed as mean +/- standard error. RESULTS: Regardless of the osmolality of the dialysis solution, elevation of Pip to 6 mmHg results in tissue expansion, primarily in theta(if), which is doubled to 1.71+/-0.11 mL/g dry weight and 1.60+/-0.17 mL/g dry weight with isotonic and hypertonic dialysis, respectively, as compared to controls (0.64+/-0.04 mL/g dry weight). The local theta(iv) was not affected by Pip or osmolality of the bathing solution. The overall theta(iv) is 0.046+/-0.006 mL/g dry weight. A two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) to access the effect of osmolality and Pip on theta(ic) demonstrated no significant change in theta(ic) (F = 1.2, p > 0.1) as calculated for controls (3.13+/-0.19 mL/g dry weight), after isotonic dialysis (3.13+/-0.20 mL/g dry weight), or after hypertonic dialysis (2.77+/-0.30 mL/g dry weight). CONCLUSION: Elevation of Pip to 6 mmHg significantly increased TTW and expanded the tissue. Tissue expansion is primarily in interstitium (theta(if)), which is doubled from control value regardless of dialysis fluid osmolality.  (+info)

External oblique abdominal muscle: a new look on its blood supply and innervation. (7/508)

Numerous reports have discussed the use of the external oblique abdominal muscle as a pedicled or a free flap for defect coverage. A detailed description of the supplying vessels and nerves is a prerequisite for successful tissue transfer but so far is not available in the literature. A study of the arteries and nerves supplying the external oblique abdominal muscle was carried out in 42 cadavers after injection of a mixture of latex and bariumsulfate. In seven fresh cadavers the motor branches were identified with the Karnovsky technique. Three different groups of arteries were identified as the nurturing vessels. The cranial part of the muscle is supplied by two branches of the intercostal arteries. While the lateral branches run on the outer surface of the muscle together with the nerves, the anterior branches enter the muscle from its inner surface. The caudal part of the muscle derives its main blood supply from one or two branches of the deep circumflex iliac artery (94.7%) or the iliolumbar artery (5.3%). The external oblique abdominal muscle is innervated by motor branches of the lateral cutaneous branches of the anterior spinal nerves in a segmental pattern. With the exception of the subcostal nerve the motor branches enter the outer surface of the muscle digitation arising from the rib above. The results show that the cranial half of the external oblique abdominal muscle has a strictly segmental blood and nerve supply while the caudal half of the muscle derives its main blood supply from one artery but still shows a segmental innervation.  (+info)

Chest wall kinematics and respiratory muscle action in walking healthy humans. (8/508)

We studied chest wall kinematics and respiratory muscle action in five untrained healthy men walking on a motor-driven treadmill at 2 and 4 miles/h with constant grade (0%). The chest wall volume (Vcw), assessed by using the ELITE system, was modeled as the sum of the volumes of the lung-apposed rib cage (Vrc,p), diaphragm-apposed rib cage (Vrc,a), and abdomen (Vab). Esophageal and gastric pressures were measured simultaneously. Velocity of shortening (V(di)) and power [Wdi = diaphragm pressure (Pdi) x V(di)] of the diaphragm were also calculated. During walking, the progressive increase in end-inspiratory Vcw (P < 0.05) resulted from an increase in end-inspiratory Vrc,p and Vrc,a (P < 0.01). The progressive decrease (P < 0.05) in end-expiratory Vcw was entirely due to the decrease in end-expiratory Vab (P < 0.01). The increase in Vrc,a was proportionally slightly greater than the increase in Vrc,p, consistent with minimal rib cage distortion (2.5 +/- 0.2% at 4 miles/h). The Vcw end-inspiratory increase and end-expiratory decrease were accounted for by inspiratory rib cage (RCM,i) and abdominal (ABM) muscle action, respectively. The pressure developed by RCM,i and ABM and Pdi progressively increased (P < 0.05) from rest to the highest workload. The increase in V(di), more than the increase in the change in Pdi, accounted for the increase in Wdi. In conclusion, we found that, in walking healthy humans, the increase in ventilatory demand was met by the recruitment of the inspiratory and expiratory reserve volume. ABM action accounted for the expiratory reserve volume recruitment. We have also shown that the diaphragm acts mainly as a flow generator. The rib cage distortion, although measurable, is minimized by the coordinated action of respiratory muscles.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Differences in abdominal muscle thicknesses between chronic low back pain patients and healthy subjects. AU - Ota, Megumi. AU - Kaneoka, Koji. PY - 2011. Y1 - 2011. N2 - [Purpose] It has been reported that chronic low-back pain (CLBP) patients exhibit asymmetric atrophy of the lumbar multiidus muscle. However, studies focusing on the abdominal muscles have not yet been conducted. The purpose of this study was to determine abdominal muscle thickness and symmetry in CLBP patients and healthy subjects. [Subjects and Methods] Data were obtained from 50 healthy subjects (30.2 ± 6.1 years) and 50 CLBP patients (31.5 ± 8.7 years). The thicknesses of the rectus abdominis (RA), external oblique (EO), internal oblique (IO), and transversus abdominis (TrA) were measured by ultrasonography. We calculated the mean thicknesses of both sides. In addition, we calculated the asymmetry ratio as a percentage of the difference between the sides. The differences in muscle thickness between the CLBP ...

Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block has gained popularity for the control of postoperative pain in various surgeries. Three studies showed inconsistent result on pain control after TAP block in laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The TAP technique used in these studies was classic ultrasound guided TAP block. Besides periumbilical incision, sub-xiphoid incision is usually made during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. As typical posterior TAP rarely extend above T8, the investigators undergo subcostal TAP block for this type of surgery. The investigators are going to investigate the effect of subcostal TAP on early postoperative pain after laparoscopic cholecystectomy ...
Background: Due to the importance of pain control after abdominal surgery, several methods such as transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block are used to reduce the pain after surgery. TAP blocks can be performed using various ultrasound-guided approaches. Two important approaches to do this are ultrasound-guided lateral and posterior approaches. This study aimed to compare the two approaches of ultrasound-guided lateral and posterior TAP blocks to control pain after cesarean section.

Having highlighted some of the assumptions made by Allison et al1 and Cook2 it is also worth considering some issues in the clinical literature as a whole that have spawned some of this current debate. In my view the whole debate around transversus abdominis is missing a critical issue. Back pain is not an issue of a single muscle, it is associated with complex changes across a whole system. Although the early studies focussed on this muscle,25 26 an abundant literature has evolved that shows that the changes in back pain are complex and involve many muscles and many control properties. One of the factors that have perpetuated the confusion is that, although the changes in transversus abdominis appear to be relatively consistent,25 26 the changes in the other muscles are variable,27 28 and therefore harder to find in a non-specific pain population. Recent work even suggests that many people with back pain may have increased stability rather than decreased stability,29 potentially as a result of ...
Caudal block (CB) is the gold standard technique for analgesia in children undergoing surgical interventions in the groin.. Although the efficacy and the safety of this technique is high, nonetheless, there are several caveats such as unwarranted motor blockade of the lower limbs and disturbances of the bladder function, potentially resulting in delayed demission in the ambulatory setting. The effect of the blockade wears off within 4-5h post-block, making the administration of additional pain medication necessary.. Peripheral nerve blockades (PNB) are an alternative to CB and have a prolonged duration of the analgesic effect. More recently, an alternative method to block neural structures which innervate lower abdominal wall has been described; the transverse abdominal plane block. The ultrasound guided technique improves the safety of margin. However, although this new technique seems to offer substantial advantages so far only experience from small case series are available. In particular, ...

A laparoscopic approach is now considered the gold standard in colorectal resection for benign and malignant disease [1]. Laparoscopic surgery is associated with a significant reduction in postoperative pain and opioid consumption, lower morbidity, faster recovery and shorter hospital stay [1]. However, strategies for postoperative pain management after laparoscopic surgery are mainly derived from concepts that have been established for open surgical procedures [2]. As such, patient-controlled epidural and intravenous analgesia are still the most frequently used techniques for postoperative analgesia after laparoscopic colorectal surgery [3]. Epidural analgesia (EA) is known to provide excellent pain control; however, the role of EA in laparoscopic surgery is increasingly being scrutinized [1]. Following laparoscopic colorectal surgery, the use of EA has been shown to result in a prolonged time to mobilization, an increase in hospital costs, length of hospital stay and a higher incidence of ...

This is the area of the transversus abdominis aponeurosis, lateral to the edge of the rectus muscle but medial to the Spigelian line, which is the point of transition of the transversus abdominis muscle to its aponeurotic tendon [1,3]. Although named after Adriaan van der Spieghel, he only described the semilunar line (linea Spigeli) in 1645. The hernia was first described by Klinkosch in 1764 [4]. It was his description of the linea semilunaris, which defines the transition from muscle to aponeurosis in the transversus abdominus, and its relationship with the lateral border of the rectus muscle, which outlines the medial and lateral aspect of what we now call the "Spigelian fascia". It is within this Spigelian fascia that this defect occurs. This hernia most commonly presents at the level of the semicircular line (arcuate line of Douglas). Below this line the Spigelian aponeurosis is a single layer and ...
When the abdominal muscles are properly developed, this adjustment always occurs; when the vertical position is assumed, provided that the attitude of the body is such as to make the adjustment possible. When the trunk is bent forward, the distance between the ribs and the pelvic bones, the points of attachment of the two ends of the abdominal muscles are brought nearer together. The normal distance may be lessened as much as two inches, or even more. The "tone" of the muscles is not sufficient to take up so much slack, and consequently, if a person assumes a stooped and relaxed or "slouched" position, there is certain to be an undue accumulation of blood in the vessels of the abdomen. The liver, spleen, stomach, intestines and Pelvic organs--every structure in this region of the body is overcharged with blood, in a condition of passive congestion, a condition which is an open invitation to disease and, sooner or later, results in the development of various disorders, such as constipation, ...
Transverse abdominis Plane blocks (TAP) provide effective postoperative analgesia following surgical incisions of the lower and middle abdominal wall, including those associated with cesarean section. This study investigated the efficacy of liposomal bupivacaine diluted with 0.25% bupivacaine administered in bilateral TAP blocks for post-operative analgesia after Ce-sarean section preformed under neuraxial anesthesia. The patients who received the TAP blocks with liposomal bupivacaine had noticeably low pain scores of 1.0 ± 1.4, 1.4 ± 2.1, 1.7 ± 1.9, 1.9 ± 3.3 and 1.9 ± 2.3 at 6, 12, 24, 48 and 72 hours respectively. Only 3 patients used oxycodone (5 mg)/acetaminophen (325 mg) postoperative. One patient took two tables of oxycodone (5 mg)/acetamino-phen (325 mg) after 24 hours, a second patient used oxycodone (5 mg)/aceta-minophen (325 mg) after 72 hours and the third patient was transferred to the intensive care unit (ICU) since she developed postpartum cardiac complications, and was give

The iliohypogastric nerve runs posterior to the psoas major on its proximal lateral border to run laterally and obliquely on the anterior side of quadratus lumborum. Lateral to this muscle, it pierces the transversus abdominis to run above the iliac crest between that muscle and abdominal internal oblique. It gives off several motor branches to these muscles and a sensory branch to the skin of the lateral hip. Its terminal branch then runs parallel to the inguinal ligament to exit the aponeurosis of the abdominal external oblique above the external inguinal ring where it supplies the skin above the inguinal ligament (i.e. the hypogastric region) with the anterior cutaneous branch. [2] The ilioinguinal nerve closely follows the iliohypogastric nerve on the quadratus lumborum, but then passes below it to run at the level of the iliac crest. It pierces the lateral abdominal wall and runs medially at the level of the inguinal ligament where it supplies motor branches to both transversus abdominis ...

The ultrasound-guided transmuscular quadratus lumborum (TQL) block performed in the lumbar paravertebral region exerts its effect by spreading into the thoracic paravertebral space with blockade of both somatosensory and visceral nerves of the abdominal and retroperitoneal region. We discovered an inadequate management of post-operative pain by the conventional analgesic regimen among caesarean section patients in our hospital. In this report we present three cases where the TQL block is demonstrated as an effective tool of opioid sparing, pre-emptive anaesthesia as well as rescue analgesia. We propose the use of TQL block as a safe and reliable alternative to transversus abdominis plane block, paravertebral block and epidural blockade.

The transversus thoracis muscle (/trænzˈvɜːrsəs θəˈreɪsɪs/) lies internal to the thoracic cage, anteriorly. It is a thin plane of muscular and tendinous fibers, situated upon the inner surface of the front wall of the chest. It is in the same layer as the subcostal muscles and the innermost intercostal muscles. It arises on either side from the lower third of the posterior surface of the body of the sternum, from the posterior surface of the xiphoid process, and from the sternal ends of the costal cartilages of the lower three or four true ribs. Its fibers diverge upward and lateralward, to be inserted by slips into the lower borders and inner surfaces of the costal cartilages of the second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth ribs. The lowest fibers of this muscle are horizontal in their direction, and are continuous with those of the transversus abdominis; the intermediate fibers are oblique, while the highest are almost vertical. This muscle varies in its attachments, not only in ...
Background: Current guidelines do not support the routine use of computed tomography (CT) scan of the head in the diagnostic workup of syncope. There is a lack of research to support whether these guidelines apply to the Black population. Aims: This study aims to evaluate the yield of neuroimaging in the evaluation of Syncope in a predominantly Black patient population and to test whether current guidelines based on studies conducted in other populations hold true in this group. Material and Methods: A retrospective review of records of 151 patients admitted to a University Hospital with Syncope from 2011 to 2014 was performed. Data collected include CT head, magnetic resonance imaging of the brain, magnetic resonance angiogram, electroencephalogram, and orthostatic vital signs. Demographic data, admitting service, and comorbid conditions were identified. Syncope was classified as cardiogenic, orthostatic, vasovagal, situational, or undetermined. Statistical analysis was performed to determine ...

In order to have an effective hiking position, you need to throw your shoulders back and consequently tighten your abs. The static movement of the abs makes breathing hard, since the abs will not allow the muscles responsible for breathing to work properly (transversus abdominis muscle etc.), which results in the decrease in volume of air coming in and out of the lungs. 10-15 min upwind, with an average heart rate of 140 bpm is similar to a 10-15 min run. While you run, you breathe with a higher rhythm because the body requires a higher volume of O2 and also needs to take out the CO2. The same thing is applicable in Laser sailing. While racing in 12+ knots you need to breathe in the same rhythm as a run to provide the body enough O2 to function, otherwise you will feel short of breath.. Exercises: ...
With todays short article, I wanted to show you a VERY simple exercise that you can do anytime, anywhere to help get a flatter stomach over time.. Now I will preface this by saying that this specific exercise does NOT increase fat burning, but it CAN help to flatten your stomach by strengthening your deeper transversus abdominis muscles and hence "pulling in" a lazy stomach (aka beer belly or "pooch belly").. It involves doing an exercise called "ab vacuums".... I find it a good time to get in the habit of doing daily ab vacuums while driving on your daily commute or another time that would get you in the habit of doing them regularly.. (please make sure this doesnt distract you from driving safely... I find that it doesnt distract me at all, since you can keep your eyes on the road at all times and both hands still on the wheel...its certainly much safer than driving while on a cell phone!). Of course, ab vacuums can be done anywhere and at anytime and dont have to be just for driving, but ...

Introduction: The role of transversus abdominis plane (TAP) blocks for cesarean delivery (CD) analgesia is uncertain. Previous studies have focused on TAP blocks administered at the end of surgery prior to the offset of spinal anesthesia, and report limited additional analgesic benefit in patients receiving intrathecal (IT) morphine (1,2). We present a series of three cases where TAP blocks were used as rescue analgesia in patients who had severe post-CD pain despite receiving IT morphine. Case Summaries: The patients received our institutions standard CD spinal anesthetic (IT 12 mg bupivacaine, 10 mcg fentanyl and 200 mcg morphine). For all three, NSAIDs were withheld for bleeding concerns. All the patients experienced severe pain in PACU after surgery. Bilateral TAP blocks were performed under ultrasound guidance, and 20 ml of 0.375% ropivacaine with 1:400,00 epinephrine was deposited bilaterally. All three patients got significant pain relief that lasted 10-19 hours, facilitated neonatal ...
A rectangular piece of polypropylene mesh approximately 2½ to 3 cm by 8 to 10 cm in size is cut with a lateral slit for the cord and a medial blunt oval for the pubis (Figure 9). The mesh is positioned on the floor of the canal with the tails overlapping lateral to the internal ring and cord. A nonabsorbable 00 suture anchors the mesh to the pubic tubercle. This continuous suture secures the inferior edge of the mesh to the inguinal ligament while interrupted absorbable sutures anchor the superior edge to the internal oblique muscle (Figure 10). Care is taken in the placement of the superior suture so as to avoid any nerve branches. Additional care is needed in the placement of sutures laterally so as to avoid the ilioinguinal nerve, which lies upon the internal oblique muscle just lateral to the cord. The two tails of the mesh are overlapped and then sewn together. It is important that the mesh not be stretched tightly. The superior suture placements are chosen such that the mesh is not ...
Development of the ventral body wall in the human embryo{{#pmid:26467243,PMID26467243}} Initially, vertebrae and ribs had formed medially, and primordia of sternum and hypaxial flank muscle primordium laterally in the body wall at Carnegie Stage (CS){{CS15}} (5.5 weeks). The next week, ribs and muscle primordium expanded in ventrolateral direction only. At CS{{CS18}} (6.5 weeks), separate intercostal and abdominal wall muscles differentiated, and ribs, sterna, and muscles began to expand ventromedially and caudally, with the bilateral sternal bars fusing in the midline after CS{{CS20}} (7 weeks) and the rectus muscles reaching the umbilicus at CS{{CS23}} (8 weeks). The near-constant absolute distance between both rectus muscles and approximately fivefold decline of this distance relative to body circumference between 6 and 10 weeks identified dorsoventral growth in the dorsal body wall as determinant of the closure of the ventral body wall. Concomitant with the straightening of the ...

When you are doing abdominal exercises, you should work them in a sequence so you are targeting all areas. You want to work the entire rectus abdominus, transverse abdominus, obliques, hip flexors and the overall core. So often individuals just do normal crunches at their gym with the ab-roller and that is all they do.You need to challenge those muscles by not resting as long in between each exercise. For example, go from doing normal crunches for warming up to a full plank, right into balance oblique crunches to medicine ball rotation throws. You really need to get creative with your exercises and that is why it is great to have a workout partner, personal trainer or take an ab class.The key to getting a six pack or a well-defined mid section is not how many ab crunches you can do, but how well your entire routine is, especially your diet. Yes, you want to keep challenging and building up those mid section muscles, but if all you do is abs and neglect your diet and the rest of your body, then ...

Constipation is common in children. However, normal bowel movements are different for each child. In the first month, infants tend to have bowel movements about once a day. After that, babies can go a few days or even a week between bowel movements. Its also difficult to pass stools because their abdominal muscles are weak. So babies tend to strain, cry, and get red in the face when they have a bowel movement. This does not mean they are constipated. If bowel movements are soft, then there is likely no problem. Signs of constipation in infants and children may include: ...
Neti can be used to counteract the effects of air pollution, of dust, pollen, bacteria and virus. It stimulates the mucous membranes by the salt water activating the small cilia, which transport impurities up from the windpipe and lungs. Nose cleansing can be used together with one of the yogic breathing exercises, the Blacksmiths Bellows. Apart from drying the nose, it increases the oxygenation of the blood and cleanses the air passages. Neti, together with the Blacksmith Bellows, can alleviate sinus problems.. Nose cleansing is just one of many cleansing processes in yoga.

I have knee pain- so I can exercise? Many people use knee pain as an excuse not to exercise, but theres a difference between pain and discomfort. If theres shooting pain, then a physio should look at it. If it just feels a bit stiff then swimming,the rowing machine and cycling are activities you can try and be doable. Ideally the muscles around the knee need to be strengthened, so lunges and squats can help.. What are the best exercises for the tummy? For firm abdominal muscles, body fat needs to be reduced. Which is 80% to do with nutrition, the rest is aerobic exercise. After that, you need to work on the muscles at the side of the abdomen, the obliques and the transversus abdominis. The plank is a great exercise. Start by holding your stomach and bottom muscles tight for 10 seconds until you can hold it for at least 1 minute.

As a fetus is growing, different organ systems are developing and maturing. Early in development, the intestines actually project into the umbilical cord as they are growing. The intestines should return to the abdomen. When the fetus is growing and developing during pregnancy, there is a small opening in the abdominal muscles that the umbilical cord can pass through, connecting the mother to the fetus. As the fetus matures, the abdominal muscles should meet in the middle and grow together, closing off this opening. An omphalocele occurs when the abdominal organs do not return to the abdominal cavity as they should. ...

As shown in FIG. 2, the reinforcing piece 2 is elliptical when viewed from above. The ellipse consists of an upper edge formed by a lower edge portion 4a having a large radius of curvature, two lateral edges 4b and 4c having a small radius of curvature, and a portion 4e having a straight portion 4d having a large radius of curvature. The shape of the upper edge is specific to the anterior region and more precisely fits the space formed after the external oblique aponeurosis, the approach to the connecting tendon, and the straight aponeurosis. The latter is fixed between the external oblique muscle aponeurosis attachment point and that of the rectus muscle. This anatomical asymmetry, combined with the presence of the flap 3, means that there is a right side reinforcement and a left side reinforcement. The reinforcement shown is the right reinforcement (for the patient). Due to the large curvature radius 4a of the lower edge, it is possible to perfectly match the crus curvature with respect to the ...
To fully utilize our design for breathing the abdominal muscles needs to be fully relaxed to allow the diaphragm to expand down into the abdomen on the inhalation.. The contraction of the diaphragm draws air down into the lungs. On the exhalation, the diaphragm is aided by the contraction of powerful abdominal muscles. The abdominal and intercostal muscles between the ribs are considered the primary muscles associated with breathing.. Our breathing system is designed to draw breath down into the lower lungs. The lower lungs have about five times the capacity of the smaller upper lobes of the lung. In addition blood circulation to the top of the lungs is less than 0.1 litre per minute, well below the circulation to the mid and lower lungs. The flow of blood to the middle of the lungs is about 0.6 litres per minute and at the bottom of the lungs this increases to over 1 litre per minute.. The purpose of breathing is to draw in air and allow for an exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the ...
While raising your legs, you can feel tightness in your abdominal muscles. This can make your abdominal muscles get controlled. Their muscle tone is kept well maintained.

You will get relieved from constipation if you are suffering. Your digestion and absorption power increases. Sarvangasana also helps to tune the muscle tone of your leg muscles. Overall, sarvangasana helps a lot in controlling your weight and achieving complete health ...
Since several have used the term muscle spasms (abdominal) the thought comes to mind of practicing yoga where you would learn more control over the specific muscles and perhaps even be able to counter or prevent such spasms. I just started practicing about 2 months ago and am learning from an instructor that teaches Swasthya Yoga. As there are many types/styles of Yoga I cant attest to others but this one definitely emphasizes becoming more aware or in tune with your body and specific muscles. One techinique called a kriya is specific to the abdominal muscles and our instructor has mastered control of his abdominal muscles to the point where he is able to literally roll his abs from side to side and in and out. Its the weirdest thing Ive ever seen and Im waiting for the Alien to pop out of his chest. The intermediate step for learning this has helped me as I more often than not suffer from constipation. While C may not at all be a part of your problem having better control over those muscles ...
A scalpel is used and after the incision to the skin, the doctor will cut through the adipose (fat) tissue, then the fascia, which covers the abdominal muscles, and then the abdominal muscles midline (which runs vertically) can be pulled apart and held open. The peritoneum is what lines everyones abdomens and "encases" your innards. This thin layer is then cut as well, exposing the bladder and uterus. The bladder is kind of in front of the uterus, so the team will pull it downward and out of the way, giving a clear picture of the uterus. Once the uterine incision is made, the delivery is much like a vaginal delivery in that the head will come out gently as the rest of the baby is guided out. The umbilical cord will be clamped and cut, parents get to say hi to baby, and then baby is whisked away to get cleaned up and assessed. The doctor will gently pull the placenta out and begin to close you up. Closing the incisions will be much like the initial procedure in reverse, but of course much ...
What is a "tummy tuck"?. Otherwise known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and in some cases, tighten weakened abdominal muscles. A flatter abdomen and smoother profile can be achieved with this procedure. A tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss and exercise.. Who is an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck?. Tummy tucks are performed on adults who are in good general health, have loose abdominal skin or stretched out abdominal muscles (i.e. from multiple pregnancies), and are close to their ideal body weight for their body type and size. We advise those who plan future pregnancies to postpone tummy tuck because the abdominal skin and muscles would be stretched out again with a pregnancy. Good candidates should have their weight be relatively stable. If they are planning to lose more weight, then we recommend waiting.. Things you need to consider prior to tummy tuck procedure.. Smokers have impaired healing and blood flow to skin. Those with heart disease or have ...

Despite the importance of the deep intrinsic spinal muscles for trunk control, few studies have investigated their activity during human locomotion or how this may change with speed and mode of locomotion. Furthermore, it has not been determined whether the postural and respiratory functions, of which these muscles take part, can be coordinated when locomotor demands are increased. EMG recordings of abdominal and paraspinal muscles were made in seven healthy subjects using fine-wire and surface electrodes. Measurements were also made of respiration and gait parameters. Recordings were made for 10s as subjects walked on a treadmill at 1 and 2 ms(-1) and ran at 2, 3, 4 and 5 ms(-1). Unlike the superficial muscles, transversus abdominis was active tonically throughout the gait cycle with all tasks, except running at speeds of 3 ms(-1) and greater. All other muscles were recruited in a phasic manner. The relative duration of these bursts of activity was influenced by speed and/or mode of locomotion. ...
Your transverse abdominal muscle, or TA, is the most neglected muscle in your abdomen. They are the deepest core muscles and they form a natural girdle to support your entire middle section. Their main function is to stabilize your spine. They help to keep your organs in place, while putting pressure onto your abdomen. The development of the transverse muscles helps to tone and flatten your belly. You also can try wearing a postpartum girdle to support those muscles to get the same effect and to shrink your uterus back to its original size. Girdles also help heal diastasis recti; a condition in some postpartum women that involves the separation of the rectus abdominus muscle into right and left halves. However, there are some exercises that can help build those muscles back up from going dormant for so long. ...

3. The upper abdominals Abdominal hollowing against Bracing The popular act of drawing in the navel or "suck in the gut as if you are put in a tight pair of jeans" should definitely to be abandoned, unless there is a specific reason to do so (ie vehicles retraining) as it has the potential to undermine the focus of other muscles. It is necessary to keep completely fixed without the aid of a belt, the overemphasis on the transversus abdominis (or TVA for short, which is basically an internal belt keeps organs from spilling out) can negatively affect performance. The advice to enable deep anxiety was well intended, but unfortunately it is not possible to extrapolate information from unwanted population (ie low back patients) and apply it to healthy subjects - it just does not work that way! Early in my career, I tried this method with several customers. The report from most of them was that it was uncomfortable, almost as if my lungs were pushed from their throat while squatting! The body does not ...

An OTC EMS device cleared by FDA for toning, strengthening and firming abdominal muscles is Slendertone Flex marketed by BMR NeuroTech Inc. Regarding the claim of weight loss and minimizing body fat using EMS devices, per FDA, "While an EMS device may be able to temporarily strengthen, tone or firm a muscle, no EMS devices have been cleared at this time for weight loss, girth reduction, or for obtaining "rock hard" abs". Also per FDA, "Applying electrical current to muscles may cause muscles to contract. Stimulating muscles repeatedly with electricity may eventually result in muscles that are strengthened and toned to some extent but will not, based on currently available data, create a major change in your appearance without the addition of diet and regular exercise. The effect of using these devices is primarily to help a patient recover from impaired muscle function due to a medical condition, not to increase muscle size enough to affect appearance.". Regarding efficacy of EMS using EMS ...
SAGES patient information for hernia repair. A hernia occurs when the inside layers of the abdominal muscle have weakened, resulting in a bulge or tear. In the same way that an inner tube pushes through a damaged tire, the inner lining of the abdomen pushes through the weakened area of the abdominal wall to form a small balloon-like sac.

Having strong abdominals (abs) is vital to everyone, whether youre an athlete, recreational exerciser or just want to stay in shape and feel healthy. Strong abs leads to better balance, faster reaction times, better posture, and increased speed and power. Having a shield of muscle encompassing your trunk also assists with shock absorption and decreases the incidence of lower-back injuries. Power is both created and transferred in your midsection, allowing you to simultaneously apply your upper and lower body strengths into one coordinated burst of energy. Lower-back injuries plague many people, and the chances of experiencing lower back pain increases as you age. One of the best ways to prevent lower-back injuries is to strengthen the abdominal muscles. Strong abs will drastically help reduce some of the daily stress that is placed on your back muscles and lower lumbar vertebrae. Strengthening your trunk can also play a major role in injury rehabilitation; muscles that are well trained are more ...
