A condition characterized by abnormal posturing of the limbs that is associated with injury to the brainstem. This may occur as a clinical manifestation or induced experimentally in animals. The extensor reflexes are exaggerated leading to rigid extension of the limbs accompanied by hyperreflexia and opisthotonus. This condition is usually caused by lesions which occur in the region of the brainstem that lies between the red nuclei and the vestibular nuclei. In contrast, decorticate rigidity is characterized by flexion of the elbows and wrists with extension of the legs and feet. The causative lesion for this condition is located above the red nuclei and usually consists of diffuse cerebral damage. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p358)

Isolated femoropopliteal bypass graft for limb salvage after failed tibial reconstruction: a viable alternative to amputation. (1/775)

PURPOSE: Femoropopliteal bypass grafting procedures performed to isolated popliteal arteries after failure of a previous tibial reconstruction were studied. The results were compared with those of a study of primary isolated femoropopliteal bypass grafts (IFPBs). METHODS: IFPBs were only constructed if the uninvolved or patent popliteal segment measured at least 7 cm in length and had at least one major collateral supplying the calf. When IFPB was performed for ischemic lesions, these lesions were usually limited to the digits or small portions of the foot. Forty-seven polytetrafluoroethylene grafts and three autogenous reversed saphenous vein grafts were used. RESULTS: Ankle brachial pressure index (ABI) increased after bypass grafting by a mean of 0.46. Three-year primary life table patency and limb-salvage rates for primary IFPBs were 73% and 86%, respectively. All eight IFPBs performed after failed tibial bypass grafts remained patent for 2 to 44 months, with patients having viable, healed feet. CONCLUSION: In the presence of a suitable popliteal artery and limited tissue necrosis, IFPB can have acceptable patency and limb-salvage rates, even when a polytetrafluoroethylene graft is used. Secondary IFPB can be used to achieve limb salvage after failed tibial bypass grafting.  (+info)

Surgical transluminal iliac angioplasty with selective stenting: long-term results assessed by means of duplex scanning. (2/775)

PURPOSE: The safety of iliac angioplasty and selective stenting performed in the operating room by vascular surgeons was evaluated, and the short- and long-term results were assessed by means of serial duplex scanning. METHODS: Between 1989 and 1996, 281 iliac stenotic or occlusive lesions in 235 consecutive patients with chronic limb ischemia were treated by means of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) alone (n = 214) or PTA with stent (n = 67, 23.8%). There were 260 primary lesions and 21 restenosis after a first PTA, which were analyzed separately. Stents were implanted in selected cases, either primarily in totally occluded arteries or after suboptimum results of PTA (ie, residual stenosis or a dissection). Data were collected prospectively and analyzed retrospectively. Results were reported in an intention-to-treat basis. Clinical results and patency were evaluated by means of symptom assessment, ankle brachial pressure index, and duplex scanning at discharge and 1, 3, 6, and every 12 months after angioplasty. To identify factors that may affect outcome, 12 clinical and radiological variables, including the four categories of lesions defined by the Standards of Practice Committee of the Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology, were analyzed separately. The statistical significances of life-table analysis of patency were determined by means of the log-rank test. RESULTS: There were no postoperative deaths or amputations. Local, general, and vascular complications occurred in 2.1%, 1.3% and 4.7% of cases, respectively (total, 8.1%). The mean follow-up period was 29.6 months. The cumulative patency rates +/- SE of the 260 PTAs (including 55 PTAs plus stents) were 92.9% +/- 1.5% at 1 month, 86. 5% +/- 1.7% at 1 year, 81.2% +/- 2.3% at 2 years, 78.8% +/- 2.9% at 3 years, and 75.4% +/- 3.5% at 5 and 6 years. The two-year patency rate of 21 redo PTAs (including 11 PTAs plus stents) was 79.1% +/- 18.2%. Of 12 predictable variables studied in the first PTA group, only the category of the lesion was predictive of long-term patency. The two-year patency rate was 84% +/- 3% for 199 category 1 lesions and 69.7% +/- 6.5% for 61 category 2, 3, and 4 lesions together (P =. 02). There was no difference of patency in the stented and nonstented group. CONCLUSION: Iliac PTA alone or with the use of a stent (in cases of occlusion and/or suboptimal results of PTA) offers an excellent long-term patency rate. Categorization of lesions remains useful in predicting long-term outcome. PTA can be performed safely by vascular surgeons in the operating room and should be considered to be the primary treatment for localized iliac occlusive disease.  (+info)

Ankle-arm index as a predictor of cardiovascular disease and mortality in the Cardiovascular Health Study. The Cardiovascular Health Study Group. (3/775)

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in the legs, measured noninvasively by the ankle-arm index (AAI) is associated with clinically manifest cardiovascular disease (CVD) and its risk factors. To determine risk of total mortality, coronary heart disease, or stroke mortality and incident versus recurrent CVD associated with a low AAI, we examined the relationship of the AAI to subsequent CVD events in 5888 older adults with and without CVD. The AAI was measured in 5888 participants >/=65 years old at the baseline examination of the Cardiovascular Health Study. All participants had a detailed assessment of prevalent CVD and were contacted every 6 months for total mortality and CVD events (including CVD mortality, fatal and nonfatal myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, angina, stroke, and hospitalized PAD). The crude mortality rate at 6 years was highest (32.3%) in those participants with prevalent CVD and a low AAI (P<0.9), and it was lowest in those with neither of these findings (8.7%, P<0.01). Similar patterns emerged from analysis of recurrent CVD and incident CVD. The risk for incident congestive heart failure (relative risk [RR]=1.61) and for total mortality (RR=1.62) in those without CVD at baseline but with a low AAI remained significantly elevated after adjustment for cardiovascular risk factors. Hospitalized PAD events occurred months to years after the AAI was measured, with an adjusted RR of 5.55 (95% CI, 3.08 to 9.98) in those at risk for incident events. A statistically significant decline in survival was seen at each 0.1 decrement in the AAI. An AAI of <0.9 is an independent risk factor for incident CVD, recurrent CVD, and mortality in this group of older adults in the Cardiovascular Health Study.  (+info)

Ropivacaine or 2% mepivacaine for lower limb peripheral nerve blocks. Study Group on Orthopedic Anesthesia of the Italian Society of Anesthesia, Analgesia, and Intensive Care. (4/775)

BACKGROUND: Intra- and postoperative clinical properties of sciatic-femoral nerve block performed with either ropivacaine at different concentrations or mepivacaine have been evaluated in a multicenter, randomized, blinded study. METHODS: Adult patients scheduled for foot and ankle surgery were randomized to receive combined sciatic-femoral nerve block with 225 mg of either 0.5% (n = 83), 0.75% (n = 87), or 1% (n = 86) ropivacaine, or with 500 mg of 2% mepivacaine (n = 84). A thigh tourniquet was used in all patients. Onset time, adequacy of surgical anesthesia, time to offset of nerve block, and time until first postoperative requirement for pain medication were evaluated by a blinded observer. RESULTS: The adequacy of nerve block was similar in the four treatment groups (the ratios between adequate:inadequate: failed blocks were 74:9:0 with 0.5% ropivacaine, 74:13:0 with 0.75% ropivacaine, 78:8:0 with 1% ropivacaine, and 72:12:0 with 2% mepivacaine). The onset of the block was slower with 0.5% ropivacaine than with other anesthetic solutions (P < 0.001). Regardless of the concentration, ropivacaine produced a longer motor blockade (10.5+/-3.8 h, 10.3+/-4.3 h, and 10.2+/-5.1 h with 0.5%, 0.75%, and 1% ropivacaine, respectively) than with mepivacaine (4.3+/-2.6 h; P < 0.001). The duration of postoperative analgesia was shorter after mepivacaine (5.1+/-2.7 h) than after ropivacaine (12.2+/-4.1 h, 14.3+/-5 h, and 14.5+/-3.4 h, with 0.5%, 0.75%, or 1% ropivacaine, respectively; P < 0.001). Pain relief after 0.5% ropivacaine was 14% shorter than 0.75% or 1% ropivacaine (P < 0.05). During the first 24 h after surgery, 30-37% of patients receiving ropivacaine required no analgesics compared with 10% of those receiving mepivacaine (P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that 0.75% ropivacaine is the most suitable choice of local anesthetic for combined sciatic-femoral nerve block, providing an onset similar to mepivacaine and prolonged postoperative analgesia.  (+info)

Volume of ankle dorsiflexors and plantar flexors determined with stereological techniques. (5/775)

The validity of the methods used for determination of muscle mass has not been evaluated previously. We determined muscle mass by estimating muscle volume with assumption-free stereological techniques applied to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in 18 healthy untrained subjects (6 women, 12 men) aged 41 yr (29-64 yr; median, range). Muscle mass was also estimated by measuring leg circumference and cross-sectional muscle areas (CSA) from MRIs at three predetermined levels. Power [peak torque (PT)] of the ankle dorsiflexors and plantar flexors was estimated by using isokinetic dynamometry. Dorsiflexor volume (r2 = 0.76, P < 5 x 10(-6)) and CSA (r2 = 0.73, P < 5 x 10(-5)) were related to PT, whereas circumference was not (r2 = 0.17, not significant). Correspondingly, a relationship to plantar PT was established for plantar flexor volume (r2 = 0.69, P < 5 x 10(-5)) and CSA (r2 = 0.46, P < 5 x 10(-3)) but not leg circumference (r2 = 0.15, not significant). SDs of the residuals were smaller for the relationship between dorsiflexor PT and volume than between PT and CSA (0.42 vs. 0.45) for plantar flexors (1.5 vs. 2.0). By using the Cavalieri method, six MRI sections and 15 min of point counting are sufficient to obtain a valid estimate of the volume of the muscles of the lower leg.  (+info)

Lower limb deep venous flow in patients with peripheral vascular disease. (6/775)

PURPOSE: A prospective controlled study was undertaken to determine how peripheral vascular disease (PVD) influences flow in the deep veins of the leg. METHODS: Eighty-nine patients with peripheral vascular disease and 35 age-matched control subjects were studied. The popliteal vein diameter and flow velocity were measured at rest by means of color duplex ultrasound scanning, and these measurements were compared with the ankle-brachial pressure index. For 23 subjects, measurements were also performed during reactive hyperemia and then repeated after venous return from the foot was prevented by an ankle cuff. RESULTS: There was a significant correlation between the ankle-brachial pressure index and the popliteal vein diameter (r = 0.35, P <.001) but a negative correlation between the ankle-brachial pressure index and venous flow velocity among patients with PVD (r = -0.24, P =.002). In PVD patients the diameter decreased further in reactive hyperemia, whereas it increased in control subjects ( P <.001). Preventing venous return from the foot in PVD patients led to diameter increase at rest and abolished the reduction in diameter caused by reactive hyperemia. Despite the reduction in diameter during reactive hyperemia, flow velocity increased less in patients with PVD than it did in control subjects (P =.01). CONCLUSION: Chronic tissue ischemia results in constriction of the popliteal vein. This appears to be an active process related to the washout of humoral factors from ischemic tissues distally, which leads to an increase in flow velocity. The latter may confer some protection against the deep vein thrombosis that would otherwise tend to occur with low venous flow rates.  (+info)

Modulation of stretch reflexes during imposed walking movements of the human ankle. (7/775)

Our overall objectives were to examine the role of peripheral afferents from the ankle in modulating stretch reflexes during imposed walking movements and to assess the mechanical consequences of this reflex activity. Specifically we sought to define the changes in the electromyographic (EMG) and mechanical responses to a stretch as a function of the phase of the step cycle. We recorded the ankle position of a normal subject walking on a treadmill at 3 km/h and used a hydraulic actuator to impose the same movements on supine subjects generating a constant level of ankle torque. Small pulse displacements, superimposed on the simulated walking movement, evoked stretch reflexes at different phases of the cycle. Three major findings resulted: 1) soleus reflex EMG responses were influenced strongly by imposed walking movements. The response amplitude was substantially smaller than that observed during steady-state conditions and was modulated throughout the step cycle. This modulation was qualitatively similar to that observed during active walking. Because central factors were held constant during the imposed walking experiments, we conclude that peripheral mechanisms were capable of both reducing the amplitude of the reflex EMG and producing its modulation throughout the movement. 2) Pulse disturbances applied from early to midstance of the imposed walking cycle generated large reflex torques, suggesting that the stretch reflex could help to resist unexpected perturbations during this phase of walking. In contrast, pulses applied during late stance and swing phase generated little reflex torque. 3) Reflex EMG and reflex torque were modulated differently throughout the imposed walking cycle. In fact, at the time when the reflex EMG response was largest, the corresponding reflex torque was negligible. Thus movement not only changes the reflex EMG but greatly modifies the mechanical output that results.  (+info)

The influence of experience on the reproducibility of the ankle-brachial systolic pressure ratio in peripheral arterial occlusive disease. (8/775)

OBJECTIVES: to estimate the intra-observer variability of the measurement of the ankle-brachial systolic pressure index (ABPI) and to compare the reproducibility of the measurements by experienced vascular laboratory assistants and by less-experienced general practice personnel. DESIGN: repeated measurement of ABPI by general practitioners (GPs), GP-assistants and vascular laboratory assistants using a pocket Doppler device and a random-zero sphygmomanometer. METHODS AND MATERIALS: ABPI was measured in six patients with various degrees of PAOD by two experienced observers (vascular laboratory assistants) and by 24 less-experienced observers (18 practice assistants, six GPs). RESULTS: the total number of measurements was 354. The overall intra-observer variability estimate was 11.8% ABPI. The intra-observer variability was 7.3% in the experienced observers and 12.0% in the less-experienced observers. The difference of variability between experienced and less-experienced observers was significant. CONCLUSIONS: the ABPI is suitable in follow-up studies where repeated measurements are needed. Differences between measurements can be minimised by performing repeated measurements or by using more experienced observers.  (+info)

The relationship between silent neuronal injury (SNI) and arterial stiffness assessed by cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) has not been evaluated in patients treated with coronary angiography and intervention due to acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Th
The patient must be placed supine, without the head or any extremities dangling over the edge of the table. Measurement of ankle blood pressures in a seated position will grossly overestimate the ABI (by approximately 0.3). A Doppler ultrasound blood flow detector, commonly called Doppler wand or Doppler probe, and a sphygmomanometer (blood pressure cuff) are usually needed. The blood pressure cuff is inflated proximal to the artery in question. Measured by the Doppler wand, the inflation continues until the pulse in the artery ceases. The blood pressure cuff is then slowly deflated. When the arterys pulse is re-detected through the Doppler probe the pressure in the cuff at that moment indicates the systolic pressure of that artery. The higher systolic reading of the left and right arm brachial artery is generally used in the assessment. The pressures in each foots posterior tibial artery and dorsalis pedis artery are measured with the higher of the two values used as the ABI for that leg.[2] ...
The blood pressure at the ankle is a simple exam for peripheral artery disease (PAD). Often the ankle pressure is divided by arm blood pressure to give ABPI, but ankle pressure alone can also be informative. The patient is placed supine with ankles at heart level. A sphygmomanometer cuff is wrapped around the ankle, and using a doppler probe an ankle artery is located with distinct pulsations. The cuff is inflated until pulsations disappear, and slowly deflated until pulsation reappear and this pressure is recorded. The inflation-deflation should be repeated to make sure results are reliable, and pressure should be measured over both posterior tibial artery (medial) and anterior tibial-dorsalis pedis artery (dorsum of foot). Ankle pressure is unreliable (falsely elevated) if arteries are not fully compressible e.g. because of arterial calcification ). This is often found in patients with diabetes mellitus (41% of patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) have diabetes), renal failure or ...

Data were obtained from 2006-2013 from the Catalan primary care systems clinical records database (SIDIAP). Patients aged 35-85 years with an ankle brachial index ≤0.95 and without clinically recognized cardiovascular disease (CVD) were included. Participants were categorized as statin non-users or new-users (first prescription or re-prescribed after at least 6 months) and matched 1:1 by inclusion date and propensity score for statin treatment. Conditional Cox proportional hazards modeling was used to compare the groups for the incidence of major adverse cardiac events (MACE: myocardial infarction, cardiac revascularization, and ischemic stroke) and all-cause mortality.. ...
The classification of critical limb ischaemia, for example, returned to a descriptive definition. After more than 25 years of utilisation of the haemodynamic parameters to support the diagnosis of critical limb ischemia, the TASC II authors could not find a consensus regarding the critical level for ankle brachial pressure index, toe pressure, and TcPO2, as different patterns of proximal, distal, and foot or finger arterial occlusions can be responsible for this clinical event.. Investigation of microcirculation and macrocirculation is recommended to support the diagnosis of critical limb ischaemia. Nevertheless, the determination of TcPO2 seems to keep a role in patients with falsely elevated ankle brachial pressure index; 30mmHg is considered the critical value. Moreover, the measure of TcPO2 combined with clinical determination may be of value to predict healing at various levels of amputation.. Regarding medical treatment with prostanoids, the two type A statements of TASC IIs ...
OBJECTIVE Cardio ankle vascular index (CAVI) is reflecting stiffness of the arterial tree from the origin of aorta to the ankles. We observed elevated CAVI in patients who suffered from apoplexy attack. To clarify the role and the mechanism by which arterial stiffness elevated just after apoplexy attack, the effect of enhanced intracranial pressure (ICP) by injecting saline into the cisterna magna of the rabbit on blood pressure, CAVI and cervical blood flow, were studied. Furthermore the role of sympathetic nerve was studied. DESIGN AND METHOD The system of measuring CAVI of the New Zealand white rabbit was set up. General anesthesia was performed by ketamine and xylazine, and the respirator was set. Intracranial pressure (ICP) was monitored using a catheter inserted into subarachnoid space via right frontal bone craniotomy. Saline (15 ml) was inserted to raise ICP. Ganglion blocker, hexamethonium (10 μg/kg/10 min, and 100 μg/kg/10min) was administered just before saline injection. RESULTS When

Most studies,7 8 9 10 11 12 13 including ours, show a significantly increased risk of death for an ankle brachial pressure index of 0.9 or lower. However, in the Pittsburgh study risk of a cardiovascular event became significant only for an index ,/=0.7,12 possibly because the overall prevalence of peripheral arterial disease in this sample was high, with over 75% of subjects having an index ,/=0.9. In our study the likelihood ratio of a subsequent event was greater for subjects with an index ,/=0.7 than those with an index ,/=0.9, reflecting the more advanced atheroma in those with a lower score. For the purposes of screening, however, an index ,/=0.9 would be more likely to identify those with early disease without symptoms, who would not otherwise seek medical attention.. An index of ,/=0.9 had a significantly greater predictive value for a subsequent cardiovascular event than higher values. Similarly, subjects who had hypertension or who smoked had higher predictive values than those who did ...

Stroke or symptoms of transient brain ischemia have long been viewed as the hallmark expression of cerebrovascular disease. Previous studies conclusively showed that risk factors for stroke are also the most common risk factors for cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease (1, 2), suggesting that these disorders share a common mechanism of vascular injury. Although much attention has focused on silent injury by cerebrovascular disease risk factors to such organ systems as the heart and the kidney, much less attention has been paid to the possible spectrum of brain injury under similar conditions. Fortunately, the advent of neuroimaging, particularly the use of population-based imaging, has heralded an era of rapid growth in studies that examine the relation between cerebrovascular disease risk factors and brain infarction, even in the absence of clinical symptoms. Although previous studies showed that white matter hyperintensities (WMHs) predict future stroke and mortality (3, 4), the study ...

The first step in diagnosing PAD is a physical examination to see if there are weak pulses in the legs. This can be done with the following test.7,8. Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI): This is a painless exam that compares the blood pressure in the feet to that in the arms to determine how well the blood is flowing. This is a quick and inexpensive test and can be done at the doctors office. Ankle pressure should be at least 90% of the arm pressure, but with severe narrowing it can be as low as 50%. The ABI result can help diagnose PAD. A normal resting ABI is 0.9 to 1.3. This means that the blood pressure at the ankle is the same or greater than the pressure at the arm and suggests that the person does not have significant narrowing or blockage of blood flow.. A resting ankle-brachial index of less than 0.9 is abnormal. If the ABI is 0.41 to 0.9, there is a chance of mild-to-moderate PAD. If the ABI is 0.4 or below, the person likely has severe PAD. If the ABI test result is abnormal, other tests must ...

This study compared maximal voluntary-contraction (MVC) force and twitch-contractile properties of the plantar-flexor muscles in resting and postactivation potentiation slates of 2 groups of men matched for similar levels of physical activity: young (19- to 22-year-olds. n = 13) and 52-63 years old (n = 12). MVC force, twitch peak force (PT), maximal rates of force development and relaxation, and postactivation potentiation were higher (p , .05) in young than in 52- to 63-year-old men. In young men. potentiated-twitch PT was 23.3% higher (p , .01) than resting twitch. Resting- and potentialed-twitch-contraction times were 16.7% and 18.3% shorter, respectively (p , .001), in young than in 52- to 63-year-old men. These Findings suggest that late middle age is characterized by reduced capacity for evoked twitch-force generation and potentiation and slowed speed of contraction of the plantar-flexor muscles. ...

Ankle exoskeletons could help you run longer and faster and even serve as a new mode of transportation, according to a team of Stanford University engineers. The engineers tested a motorized exoskeleton rig that attaches around the ankle and foot and found that it made running 15 percent easier. They explained that when the exoskeletons motor is switched on, it reduces the energy cost of running and allows the user to run longer than theyre usually capable of. The device can also boost a runners speed by as much as 10 percent.
They did surgery on him for about 8 hours or so. His face got hit with something and his left eye is a little blurry and swollen but Im pretty sure hell be able to see fine when the swelling goes down.

His right hand mobility is stiff but he made a Longhorn sign for me yesterday! :o) His left arm is in bad shape. There is a bone missing (probably crushed) so theyve had to leave his arm open until they decide how to fix it. He has broken ribs but neither lung was punctured. He has no major internal problems in regards to organs or brain. His pelvis is completely crushed and hell have to have a hip replacement because of it. His right leg is broken and his right ankle crushed.

Ankle brachial index (ABI) and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) are widely used noninvasive modalities to evaluate atherosclerosis. Recently, evidence has increased supporting the use of ABI and baPWV as markers of cerebrovascular disease. This study sought to examine the relationship between ABI and baPWV with ischemic stroke. This study also aimed to determine which pathogenic mechanism, large artery disease (LAD) or small vessel disease (SVD), is related to ABI or baPWV. Retrospectively, 121 patients with ischemic stroke and 38 subjects with no obvious ischemic stroke history were recruited. First, ABI and baPWV were compared between the groups. Then, within the stroke group, the relevance of ABI and baPWV with regard to SVD and LAD, which were classified by brain magnetic resonance image (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) or computed tomography angiography (CTA) findings, was assessed. The baPWV was higher in the stroke group than non-stroke group (1,944.18土416.6 cm/s ...

To rule out poor circulation as a cause, it is usual for a doctor or nurse to check the blood pressure in the ankle and in the arm. The ankle blood pressure reading is divided by the arm blood pressure reading to give a blood pressure ratio called the Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI). If the ratio is low (less than 0.8) it indicates that the cause of the ulcer is likely to be poor circulation (peripheral vascular disease) rather than venous problems. Certain blood and urine tests may also be done to rule out conditions such as anemia, diabetes, kidney problems and rheumatoid arthritis which may cause or aggravate certain types of skin ulcer.. What is the treatment for venous leg ulcers?. The ulcer is dressed in a similar way to any other wound. Typically, a nurse will do this every week or so. Compression bandaging. This is the most important part of treatment. The aim is to counteract the raised pressure in the leg veins. This gives the best chance for the ulcer to heal. The common method ...

Dr Blakes comment: Almost my friend. The Plantarflexion of the ankle should be done first with the knee slightly bent, and then the knee at 90 degrees or so. The first part gets the gastrocnemius and the second part gets the soleus. The Eversion should be done with the knee slightly bent in both and the ankle first pointed (like in Ballet) and then the ankle at a right angle. The first gets the peroneus brevis and the second the peroneus longus. This the same for the inversion: pointed for the posterior tibial and ankle right ankle for the anterior tibial. You can actually add the third inversion exercise with the ankle pointed and the knee at a right angle to fire the soleus more. The dorsiflexion movement is only with the knee slightly bent. I hope this helps. ...

Case: 60 Year Old Female with Ankle Stiffness. A patient recently came to see me four days following her ten day beach vacation. She explained that she did 5 kilometres of walking along the beach daily. On the ninth day of her trip, she found it very difficult to walk, due to a restriction/locking in her ankles. She wore flip flops, sandals and sometimes went barefoot on her walks. As much as she tried, she could not bend her ankle/foot up or down. She explained that she was worried that she broke something in her ankle and thus the cause of her limited motion. During the airplane ride back, she noticed some swelling in both the ankles and immediately became concerned. When she returned home, she went to see her family doctor right away about the health concern. Her family doctor did some blood work and requested x-rays of the ankle and foot. Everything came back normal. The doctor suggested she go to a Chiropractor or Massage Therapist.. When she showed me her ankle, it appeared to be slightly ...
Results: Interobserver and intraobserver reliability in identifying the mechanical ankle joint axis point were very high. The mean postoperative mechanical axis point was 50% (range, 13% to 70%) in ankles for which the preoperative point was ≤0%, whereas the mean postoperative point was 81% (range, 48% to 113%) in ankles for which the preoperative point was ,0%. The mean change in AOFAS score was significantly less for patients with a preoperative point of ≤0% than for those with a preoperative point of ,0% (p = 0.004). Improvement was significantly greater in ankles with a postoperative mechanical ankle joint axis point of ≥80% than in ankles with a postoperative mechanical ankle joint axis point of ,60% (p = 0.030 ...
Ankle brachial pressure index From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Ankle Brachial Index (ABI or ABPI) is the ratio of the blood pressure in the lower legs to the blood pressure in the arms. Compared to the arm, lower blood pressure in the leg is an indication of blocked arteries (peripheral vascular disease or PVD). The ABI is calculated by dividing the systolic blood pressure at the ankle by the systolic blood pressures in the arm.[1] Contents [hide] 1 Method 2 Interpretation of results 3.... Read more... ...

There are numerous studies of CT- and MRI-based volume-mismatch (which I think youre referring to) which provide useful information and continue to grow in sophistication but we do not as yet have a clear good or bad outcome threshold that can inform prognosis in all patients, especially since most of those studies focus primarily on the most ill patients, so their findings cannot necessarily be extrapolated to mild strokes. It is important to know that there may never be such a scan that can answer this definitively because symptoms and level of disability vary widely between patients, even those with strokes of similar size and location.. It is also important to know that associational biomarkers like this, while not exquisitely elegant in letting us know what is happening to the injured area of brain and how it might recover, can provide very valuable information that we need to effectively counsel and make recommendations..

About 8 years ago while playing high school basketball I injured my left ankle very badly. My ankle didnt break but the doctor said the internal damage was irreversible and even with extensive therapy I would never fully recover. For the first time in my life what the doctor had told me was 100% correct. I went through seven months of therapy and peaked at 70% strength. I wore regular ankle braces on that ankle from then on out. About 1 year after that, I injured my right ankle almost identically playing tennis. I knew what I was in for and immediately began therapy again. But when I returned to the courts my coach was waiting on me with two contraptions I hadnt seen before. He told me if I wanted to continue playing sports for him or for myself in general, that I would have to wear these. Its been about 6 1/2 years now and I wont even go for a long walk without these on. I refer to them as my Magic Shoes in reference to Forest Gump. You guys are my savior and keep me doing what I ...
These are cases with conditions where the benefits of using of compression stockings may outweigh the risks. Close and regular monitoring by medical or nursing staff will be necessary for the duration of the compression treatment.. Gangrenous conditions including peripheral vascular disease (PVD) - Is the most common disease of the arteries. The name is often used as a synonym for peripheral artery disease (PAD). Another name is arteriosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, caused by fatty deposits in the blood vessels. This illness causes decreased, or in severe cases, complete blockage of blood flow. If it cannot be corrected it can lead to serious infections, death of tissue and amputation of affected limbs.. ABPI (ankle brachial pressure index) less than 0.8 or falsely elevated e.g. due to diabetes - A low ankle-brachial index number can be an indicator for narrowing or blockage of the arteries in the legs, which can lead to circulatory problems, heart disease or stroke. With diabetes, a ...

The symptoms of PAD often develop slowly, over time. If your symptoms develop quickly, or get suddenly worse, it could be a sign of a serious problem requiring immediate treatment.. You should see a GP if you experience recurring leg pain when exercising.. Many people mistakenly think this is just part of growing older, but theres no reason why an otherwise healthy person should experience leg pain.. PAD is usually diagnosed through a physical examination by a GP, and by comparing the blood pressure in your arm and your ankle.. A difference between the 2 may indicate PAD and is called the ankle brachial pressure index (ABPI). Read about diagnosing PAD.. PAD is a form of cardiovascular disease (CVD) because it affects the blood vessels.. Its usually caused by a build-up of fatty deposits in the walls of the leg arteries. The fatty deposits (atheroma) are made up of cholesterol and other waste substances.. The build-up of fatty deposits on the walls of the arteries makes the arteries narrower ...
The ankle block is a combination of 5 injections around the foot and ankle. Before the performance of the block, you will receive medicine to sedate you. Only after you are adequately sedated will the anesthesiologist proceed with the injections. We do this so that you will not feel any discomfort during the performance of the block. In fact, you probably wont even remember you had the procedure. Once sedated, the anesthesiologist will clean your foot and ankle with an iodine solution, identical to the solution used by the surgeons. Then he or she will use very thin needles to inject a local anesthetic, similar to lidocaine, to numb a portion of the foot. Depending on where on the foot the surgery takes place, this may involve 4 to 5 different nerves.. After surgery, you may notice some bruising around the ankle. That is where the anesthetics were injected. Accordingly, you may notice that actual injection points around the ankle. Because we use very thin needles, the marks are not long ...

Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) is a measure of the fall in blood pressure in the arteries supplying the legs and is used to detect evidence of blockages in the peripheral vessels. It is calculated by dividing the higher systolic blood pressure in the ankle (dorsalis pedis or posterior tibial) of the one leg by the higher of the two systolic blood pressures in the arms. A doppler probe is used to monitor the pulse while a sphygmomanometer is inflated above the artery. The cuff is deflated and the pressure at which the pulse returns is recorded.. ABI=Highest Ankle Systolic Pressure/Highest Brachial Systolic Pressure. The ABI is the ratio of the ankle to arm pressure, and an ABI between 0.9 and 1.3 is considered normal. A reduced ABI (less than 0.9) is consistent with peripheral artery occlusive disease, with values below 0.8 indicating moderate disease and below 0.5 severe disease. ...
The British Medical Journal has published a paper that has concluded that aspirin is ineffective in preventing primary cardiovascular events in some patients with diabetes. This study has been reported in the media (BBC).. The study particularly looked at patients with diabetes and asymptomatic peripheral arterial disease (defined as a ankle brachial pressure index of 0.99 or less). These patients were randomised to one of four treatment groups including treatment with aspirin, antioxidants or matching placebo. The primary outcome for the study was a composite including death from coronary heart disease or stroke, non-fatal myocardial infarction or stroke.. The study recruited almost 1,300 patients with approximately 300 in each treatment group and ran for 8 years. The study found no difference in the primary endpoint for either treatment. The paper notes that, small effects may be shown with larger trials continued for a longer time.. It should be noted that by year 6 of the study one third ...
Roger said: I used to play with Manchester Rugby Club and broke my right ankle in my 20s and again in my 30s.. I recovered and thought nothing of it for years until my ankle started to play up in the spring and I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis due to the earlier trauma.. We bought the house on the beach because Im so passionate about kitesurfing and seeing people out there enjoying the sea made me determined to do something about my condition.. I wasnt prepared to stay on painkillers and not do the things I enjoy and saw Mr Makwana who was great at explaining what the procedure entailed.. It was two and a quarter hours of keyhole surgery which involved fusing bone in my lower tibia to the ankle joint. To me the result was nothing short of a miracle.. After six weeks in plaster and then a further five in an air cast boot, Roger was set free and back to his old self running the village estate agency.. Its like magic, he said. Im pain free and have most of my ankle flexibility ...
Ankle joint orthoses stabilize the ankle. Depending on the model, they also mobilize the ankle by accustoming the ankle joint to more freedom of movement.
Although age-related gait changes have been well characterized, little is known regarding potential functional changes in central motor control of distal lower limb movements with age. We hypothesized that there are age-related changes in brain activity associated with the control of repetitive ankle movements, an element of gait feasible for study with functional magnetic resonance imaging. We analyzed standardized functional magnetic resonance imaging data from 102 right-foot dominant healthy participants aged 20-83years for age-associated effects using FSL and a meta-analysis using coordinate-based activation likelihood estimation. For the first time, we have confirmed age-related changes in brain activity with this gait-related movement of the lower limb in a large population. Increasing age correlated strongly with increased movement-associated activity in the cerebellum and precuneus. Given that task performance did not vary with age, we interpret these changes as potentially compensatory for
