Australopithecus garhi: a new species of early hominid from Ethiopia. (1/20)

The lack of an adequate hominid fossil record in eastern Africa between 2 and 3 million years ago (Ma) has hampered investigations of early hominid phylogeny. Discovery of 2.5 Ma hominid cranial and dental remains from the Hata beds of Ethiopia's Middle Awash allows recognition of a new species of Australopithecus. This species is descended from Australopithecus afarensis and is a candidate ancestor for early Homo. Contemporary postcranial remains feature a derived humanlike humeral/femoral ratio and an apelike upper arm-to-lower arm ratio.  (+info)

Dynamic injury tolerances for long bones of the female upper extremity. (2/20)

This paper presents the dynamic injury tolerances for the female humerus and forearm derived from dynamic 3-point bending tests using 22 female cadaver upper extremities. Twelve female humeri were tested at an average strain rate of 3.7+/-1.3%/s. The strain rates were chosen to be representative of those observed during upper extremity interaction with frontal and side airbags. The average moment to failure when mass scaled for the 5th centile female was 128+/-19 Nm. Using data from the in situ strain gauges during the drop tests and geometric properties obtained from pretest CT scans, an average dynamic elastic modulus for the female humerus was found to be 24.4+/-3.9 GPa. The injury tolerance for the forearm was determined from 10 female forearms tested at an average strain rate of 3.94+/-2.0%/s. Using 3 matched forearm pairs, it was determined that the forearm is 21% stronger in the supinated position (92+/-5 Nm) versus the pronated position (75+/-7 Nm). Two distinct fracture patterns were seen for the pronated and supinated groups. In the supinated position the average difference in fracture time between the radius and ulna was a negligible 0.4+/-0.3 ms. However, the pronated tests yielded an average difference in fracture time of 3.6+/-1.2 ms, with the ulna breaking before the radius in every test. This trend implies that in the pronated position, the ulna and radius are loaded independently, while in the supinated position the ulna and radius are loaded together as a combined structure. To produce a conservative injury criterion, a total of 7 female forearms were tested in the pronated position, which resulted in the forearm injury criterion of 58+/-12 Nm when scaled for the 5th centile female. It is anticipated that these data will provide injury reference values for the female forearm during driver air bag loading, and the female humerus during side air bag loading.  (+info)

Development of the arterial pattern in the upper limb of staged human embryos: normal development and anatomic variations. (3/20)

A total of 112 human embryos (224 upper limbs) between stages 12 and 23 of development were examined. It was observed that formation of the arterial system in the upper limb takes place as a dual process. An initial capillary plexus appears from the dorsal aorta during stage 12 and develops at the same rate as the limb. At stage 13, the capillary plexus begins a maturation process involving the enlargement and differentiation of selected parts. This remodelling process starts in the aorta and continues in a proximal to distal sequence. By stage 15 the differentiation has reached the subclavian and axillary arteries, by stage 17 it has reached the brachial artery as far as the elbow, by stage 18 it has reached the forearm arteries except for the distal part of the radial, and finally by stage 21 the whole arterial pattern is present in its definitive morphology. This differentiation process parallels the development of the skeletal system chronologically. A number of arterial variations were observed, and classified as follows: superficial brachial (7.7%), accessory brachial (0.6%). brachioradial (14%), superficial brachioulnar (4.7%), superficial brachioulnoradial (0.7%), palmar pattern of the median (18.7%) and superficial brachiomedian (0.7%) arteries. They were observed in embryos belonging to stages 17-23 and were not related to a specific stage of development. Statistical comparison with the rates of variations reported in adults did not show significant differences. It is suggested that the variations arise through the persistence, enlargement and differentiation of parts of the initial network which would normally remain as capillaries or even regress.  (+info)

The surgical treatment of bony metastases of the spine and limbs. (4/20)

The skeleton is the most common site to be affected by metastatic cancer. The place of surgical treatment and of different techniques of reconstruction has not been clearly defined. We have studied the rate of survival of 94 patients and the results of the surgical treatment of 91 metastases of the limbs and pelvis, and 18 of the spine. Variables included the different primary tumours, the metastatic load at the time of operation, the surgical margin, and the different techniques of reconstruction. The survival rate was 0.54 at one year and 0.27 at three years. Absence of visceral metastases and of a pathological fracture, a time interval of more than three years between the diagnosis of cancer and that of the first skeletal metastasis, thyroid carcinoma, prostate carcinoma, renal-cell carcinoma, breast cancer, and plasmacytoma were positive variables with regard to survival. The metastatic load of the skeleton and the surgical margin were not of significant influence. In tumours of the limbs and pelvis, the local failure rate was 0% after biological reconstruction (10), 3.6% after cemented or uncemented osteosynthesis (28) and 1.8% after prosthetic replacement (53). The local failure rate after stabilisation of the spine (18) was 16.6%. There was local recurrence in seven patients (6.4%), and in four of these the primary tumour was a renal-cell carcinoma. The local recurrence rate was 0% after extralesional (24) and 8.2% after intralesional resection (85). Improvements in the oncological management of patients with primary and metastatic disease have resulted in an increased survival rate. In order to avoid additional surgery, it is essential to consider the expected time of survival of the reconstruction and, in bony metastases with a potentially poor response to radiotherapy, the surgical margin.  (+info)

Muscle strength is a determinant of bone mineral content in the hemiparetic upper extremity: implications for stroke rehabilitation. (5/20)

Individuals with stroke have a high incidence of bone fractures and approximately 30% of these fractures occur in the upper extremity. The high risk of falls and the decline in bone and muscle health make the chronic stroke population particularly prone to upper extremity fractures. This was the first study to investigate the bone mineral content (BMC), bone mineral density (BMD), and soft tissue composition of the upper extremities and their relationship to stroke-related impairments in ambulatory individuals with chronic stroke (onset >1 year). Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) was used to acquire total body scans on 56 (22 women) community-dwelling individuals (>or=50 years of age) with chronic stroke. BMC (g) and BMD (g/cm2), lean mass (g), and fat mass (g) for each arm were derived from the total body scans. The paretic upper extremity was evaluated for muscle strength (hand-held dynamometry), impairment of motor function (Fugl-Meyer motor assessment), spasticity (Modified Ashworth Scale), and amount of use of the paretic arm in daily activities (Motor Activity Log). Results showed that the paretic arm had significantly lower BMC (13.8%, P<0.001), BMD (4.5%, P<0.001), and lean mass (9.0%, P<0.001) but higher fat mass (6.3%, P=0.028) than the non-paretic arm. Multiple regression analysis showed that lean mass in the paretic arm, height, and muscle strength were significant predictors (R2=0.810, P<0.001) of the paretic arm BMC. Height, muscle strength, and gender were significant predictors (R2=0.822, P<0.001) of lean mass in the paretic arm. These results highlight the potential of muscle strengthening to promote bone health of the paretic arm in individuals with chronic stroke.  (+info)

A complementary method for the detection of osteoblastic metastases on digitized radiographs. (6/20)

PURPOSE: This study was conducted to evaluate the diagnostic usefulness of gray level parameters in order to distinguish healthy bone from osteoblastic metastases on digitized radiographs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Skeletal radiographs of healthy bone (n = 144) and osteoblastic metastases (n = 35) were digitized using pixels 0.175 mm in size and 4,096 gray levels. We obtained an optimized healthy bone classification to compare with pathological bone: cortical, trabecular, and flat bone. The osteoblastic metastases (OM) were classified in nonflat and flat bone. These radiological images were analyzed by using a computerized method. The parameters (gray scale) calculated were: mean, standard deviation, and coefficient of variation (MGL, SDGL, and CVGL, respectively) based on gray level histogram analysis. Diagnostic utility was quantified by measurement of parameters on healthy and pathological bone, yielding quantification of area under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve, AUC. RESULTS: All three image parameters showed high and significant values of AUC when comparing healthy trabecular bone and nonflat bone OM, showing MGL the best discriminatory ability (0.97). As for flat bones, MGL showed no ability to distinguish between healthy and flat bone OM (0.50). This could be achieved by using SDGL or CVGL, with both showing a similar diagnostic ability (0.85 and 0.83, respectively). CONCLUSION: Our results show that the use of gray level parameters quantify healthy bone and osteoblastic metastases zones on digitized radiographs. This may be helpful as a complementary method for differential diagnosis. Moreover, our method will allow us to study the evolution of osteoblastic metastases under medical treatment.  (+info)

Age estimation in the Mediterranean bottlenose dolphin Tursiops truncatus (Montagu 1821) by bone density of the thoracic limb. (7/20)

The determination of age is an important step in defining the life history traits of individuals and populations. Age determination of odontocetes is mainly based on counting annual growth layer groups in the teeth. However, this useful method is always invasive, requiring the cutting of at least one tooth, and sometimes the results are difficult to interpret. Based on the concept that bone matrix is constantly deposited throughout life, we analysed the bone mineral density of the arm and forearm of a series of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus, Montagu 1821) stranded along the Italian coast of the Adriatic Sea or maintained in confined waters. The bone mineral density values we obtained were evaluated as possible age predictors of the Mediterranean population of this species, considering age as determined by counting growth layer groups in sections of the teeth and the total body length of the animal as references. Comparisons between left and right flipper showed no difference. Our results show that bone mineral density values of the thoracic limb are indeed reliable age predictors in Tursiops truncatus. Further investigations in additional odontocete species are necessary to provide strong evidence of the reliability of bone mineral density as an indicator of growth and chronological wear and tear in toothed-whales.  (+info)

Shoulder motion analysis using simultaneous skin shape registration. (8/20)

A new non-invasive approach is proposed to study joint motions. It is based on dynamic tracking of the skin shape. A robust simultaneous registration algorithm (Iterative Median Closest Point) is used to follow the evolving shape and compute the rigid motion of the underlying bone structures. This new method relies on the differentiation of the rigid and elastic parts of the shape motion. A skin marker network is tracked by a set of infrared cameras. Unlike usual techniques, the algorithm tracks the instantaneous polyhedral shape embedding this network. This innovating approach is expected to minimize bias effect of skin sweeps and give some new information about the underlying soft tissue activities. Current application addresses the motion of the shoulder complex (humerus, clavicle and scapula). It is compared with two marker-based methods published in the literature. Preliminary results show significant differences between these three approaches. The new approach measurements give rise to greater rotations.  (+info)

Pain is a common cause for children seeking care in the Emergency Department (ED). Children with orthopedic injuries often require pain control when seeking emergency care. Despite the high prevalence of ED visits requiring pain control, pain is often poorly assessed and treated in ED settings. Currently, no standard of care exists for the management of this fracture-related pain in children discharged from the ED. Furthermore, discrepancies in analgesia administration to patients of various racial groups seeking emergency care have been documented but are poorly understood. No research currently exists comparing pain severity between upper extremity fractures requiring simple splinting to those treated with sedated reduction and splinting. Furthermore, there is no research regarding the prevalence of significant post-discharge pain nor the differences among ethnic and age groups treated in the ED.. Research Questions:. What is the prevalence of significant post-discharge pain in children ...
The surgeon treating upper extremity fractures in children in areas of developing nations where the medical and surgical resources are limited should have a good knowledge of the nonoperative techniques available. He or she should also be skilled in administering local and regional anesthesia. Fortunately, in the pediatric age group, there is a considerable remodeling potential. This fact determines the adequacy of the best reduction that can be obtained by nonoperative methods ...
Background Monkey bar injuries account for the majority of playground injuries, and 34% result in a fracture. Studies have shown that there has been no decline in the number of monkey bar injuries over several decades. Our goal was to focus on fractures of the upper extremity resulting from monkey bar injuries. Additionally, we set out to analyze the dimensions of the monkey bar apparatus on which the injury occurred and determine if they were compliant with those recommended by the United States (US) Product Safety Commission. Methods A retrospective chart review of all upper extremity injuries seen in a large pediatric orthopedic practice in 2017 was conducted to find all monkey bar-related injuries. Data was collected including age at the time of injury, gender, and injury type. Families of the injured child were contacted to identify the exact location of the injury. On-site measurements were made of the monkey bar apparatus including height, the distance between grips, the circumference of

Besides the treatment, what interest me the most of the concept of Skin Shape Club. It is a boutique wellness club, where members can learn more about beauty and wellness, besides receiving clinically proven skin and slimming treatments. Besides the lounge area where members can enjoy healthy snacks and skincare books and magazine, they also provide free Wi-Fi for members when they need to do their work there. They also organise works and talks for members. The club concept is like gym membership concept, base on the package youve purchase, you can actually head down for treatment as many days as you like (depending on the therapists schedules too). I think thats quite interesting, but for customers who are not keen in joining the membership, they have package x sessions for them too. A very all-rounded concept ...
Summary. These data show that:. 1. During a 2 year period, the chronic use of fluoridated water in patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis was associated with a rise in serum phosphatase in 10 of 20 patients studied and an increased radiographic incidence of osteodystrophy.. 2. Eight long-term hemodialysis patients manifested no radiographic evidence of osteodystrophy during their first 2 to 6 years of hemodialysis, and one of these patients currently has a negative bone survey, 9 years after starting hemodialysis. This may indicate that fluoridation is not universally associated with the development of osteodystrophy and/or that if osteodystrophy does develop in response to fluoridation, it may take years before it is radiographically appreciated.. 3. The rates of bone uptake of dialysate fluoride and bone clearance of intravenously administered fluoride were both single exponential curves with similar slopes.. 4. Rectilinear bone scans with F18 showed that, within the limits of the ...
Toy-related injuries have increased significantly in the past decade, in particular those related to ride-on toys. This increase has been attributed to movement related events such as falls and inertial impacts. Furthermore, children with disabilities have been reported to be at a greater risk of being injured, and are therefore more susceptible to toy-related injuries. Although, efforts are being made to modify ride-on toys as a method for increasing quality of life in children with disabilities, there are very limited pediatric safety studies regarding children with disabilities and modified ride-on toys. This manuscript presents a systematic review of literature summarizing the current state of toy-related injuries including children with and without disabilities. Children exposed to inertial impacts in motor vehicle crashes have also been reviewed to present current pediatric safety testing methodologies and injury tolerance thresholds. Out of 2608 articles, 10 studies were included regarding

Introduction the reason of the use of complementary methods for inquiry of patients in medicine is to confirm the diagnosis of an illness, after to have been established a hypothesis based on clinical history and physical examination. These same complementary examinations, can assist the doctor in the choice of the best therapeutical one when the information are trustworthy and its results establish a direct relation of cause-effect in the illness in question. In other words, the indicative clinical signals of the presence of an illness are specific or at least more common for that illness and, when they are abolished by the implemented treatment, they indicate that the illness was cured or that its clinical repercussions had been brightened up. The complementary methods evidence the presence of occult, proper signals of the illness and that they are identified through inquiry methods special. Professor Roy Taylor takes a slightly different approach. In a similar way, the related clinical ...

Paleontologists at the University of Texas at Austin and other institutions have investigated the fossil of a giant penguin found in Peru. At five feet tall, it would have dwarfed todays largest living penguins. A UT press release stated, The fossil shows [that] the flipper and feather shapes that make penguins such powerful swimmers evolved early.1. The sudden appearance of penguins has been an evolutionary mystery. Their fossils are rare, prompting at least one evolutionist to speculate on penguin origins based on the kinds of fleas they have in common with rodents! Writing in Vertebrate History: Problems in Evolution, technical author Barbara Stahl stated, Since no site has yet given up a specimen recognizable as protopenguin, it is impossible to guess where or even in which climate penguin history began.2. The Peruvian penguin, named Inkayacu paracasensis, is not a protopenguin either. Instead, it has all of the standard penguin features, including a torpedo-shaped body, solid bones to ...
Ewan Fordyce, a palaeontologist at the island nations University of Otago, found the ancient bones to make nearly an entire skeleton 35 years ago - and in the last few years enlisted the help of two more boffins from North Carolina State University to figure out what the huge penguin would have looked like.. New Zealand was a great place for penguins around 25 million years ago, during the Oligocene period, because most of the country was underwater leaving rocky islands scattered about where penguins could hide out from predators and forage for food.. The giant penguin, which the boffins named Kairuku after the Maori for diver who returns with food, was one of at least five different species of penguin that lived in New Zealand at this time. The diversity of species is one of the reasons that figuring out what Kairuku looked like was difficult as well as its unique appearance.. Kairuku was more than a foot taller than the modern Emperor penguin and had a long narrow bill and narrow wing ...

Previous observations have indicated that the red peel areas of grapefruit with high lycopene concentrations were more tolerant to CI than yellow peel areas (Lado et al., 2015a). Because lycopene is a carotene with powerful antioxidant capacity, this study investigated whether the CI tolerance of the lycopene-accumulating rind of grapefruit may be due to an enhancement of the enzymatic and/or nonenzymatic antioxidant systems. Total antioxidant capacity, antioxidant metabolite (GSH and AsA) contents, and antioxidant enzyme (GR [glutathione reductase], ascorbate peroxidase [APX], catalase [CAT] and superoxide dismutase [SOD]) activity and gene expression were measured in the peel of Star Ruby grapefruit with contrasting CI tolerance during storage at 2 C for up to 58 d. The peel of CI-tolerant fruit exhibited a lower lipid peroxidation level (MDA content). The hydrogen peroxide concentration was similar after 3 weeks of storage, when the differences in chilling damage between sensitive and ...
The collected fossils of both Inkayacu and Icadyptes are fairly similar, as we would expect with contemporaneous and similarly sized penguins. What exists, however, to tell them apart from one another? The answer, as in any fossil animal, is in the bones. No one knows these fossil penguins better than Daniel Ksepka, now with the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, CT and it is thanks to his tireless study and description of both taxa that we know the key characters of each animal. He had help now and again and the description of Inkayacu was spearheaded by the University of Texas, overall, but much of what has been written about penguins in the past decade or so has been written by Ksepka and his collaborators. In the case of Inkayacu some of the evidence of difference from Icadyptes is actually found in the feathers of the animal. The precise imprints that were made in both the matrix material around the bones is so well preserved that the shapes and sizes of the pigment containing melanosomes has been ...

An ape maxilla (upper jaw) from the Late Miocene found in the Kutch basin, in western India, significantly extends the southern range of ancient apes in the Indian Peninsula, according to a study published in Nov. 14, 2018 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Ansuya Bhandari from the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeosciences, Lucknow, India, and colleagues.
There isnt a lot of buzz about this, but I thought it warranted a few comments. A new report in Nature describes a remarkably well-preserved ape cranium from middle Miocene sediments in Kenya. The authors, Nengo and colleagues, used powerful X-rays to observe the unerupted teeth still in its upper jaw. The teeth are really exquisite! The researchers conclude that the fossil, Nyanzapithecus alesi, is 13 million years old (using conventional dating methods) and probably a stem hominoid. What does all this mean? Its not much of a human relative even from the evolutionary perspective ...
Hey ORWAC86, call me skeptical but from your link in Wikipedia (do we know who put it there?): The practice was introduced to the west by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu (May 26, 1689-August 21, 1762). Lady Montagus husband, Edward Wortley Montagu, served as the British ambassador to the Ottoman Empire from 1716 to 1717. She witnessed inoculation in Constantinople, and was greatly impressed: she had lost a brother to smallpox and bore facial scars from the disease herself.. I too had heard of this bit but what was told to me way back in the early seventies was the Edward Jenner noticed that farm workers who contracted cowpox seemed to have developed a natural defense against smallpox…. Again Im not doubting YOU even a little bit or even the whole Montagu thing but it makes me wonder where the facts really lie… What is the whole story?. January 31st, 2007 at 6:40 AM ...
Finite element (FE) models can be used to evaluate metastatic bone fracture risk. However, currently, the FE models are not yet applicable to femurs affected with osteoblastic metastases. To determine the mechanical properties within the FE model, calibrated bone densities from CT scans are obtained and since osteoblastic metastases appear very dense on CT scans this results in strong mechanical properties of the metastatic lesions although they are weaker in real life. A potential solution is to assign more appropriate material properties to the osteoblastic lesions to better simulate the mechanical behaviour of the weakened tissue. For this purpose, exact segmentation of the metastatic lesions is important ...
Hi Dr West,. I had diagnosed on Mar 2012, with mets to brain and bone.I am EGFR+ with 19 deletion. I took Tarceva since Apr 2012 and had great responses. On Nov 2012, with still multiple tumors on my brain, I started pulsed Tarceva - I took 7 pills (150mg each) all at once on a day, then waited for 6 days. With less side effect, my brain mets(about 6-,7 of them, with largest 10mm) totally disappeared on Apr 2013s scan. I continue taking pulsed tarceva since then.. Last week my CT scan shows small new appeared lung nodules (largest 3.5mm) and one slightly increased old nodule ( from 1.5mm to 3 mm), with SUV of max 1.3. And my PET scan showed extensive increase activities (suv 3.5) on my left sacral ala, corresponding to a 12mm sclerotic lesion. I am now switched back to daily 150mg Tarceva since last visit and was told to wait for 3 more month for scan.. My question is: does this mean a tarceva resistance? Or it is caused by long period of pulsed tarceva? What might happen next after I switch ...

Scientists believe they may have uncovered another piece of the puzzle of how humans developed. Members of Dr. Ronald J. Clarkes scientific team discovered a prehistoric skeleton in the Sterkfontein Caves near Johannesburg, South Africa. It is the most complete skeleton of a hominid, or pre-Homo sapien, ever found. Believed to be between 3.2 and 3.6 million years old, the skeleton is also one of the oldest. The discovery has many scientists excited because this is the first chance they will have to study the connection between how early hominids moved and how their bodies were built. Previous finds have not been complete enough to allow scientists to know for certain if early hominids both climbed and lived in trees like apes and also walked upright, or only walked upright. Studies of the foot and ankle bones of this newest discovery show that the creature did both, though it will take a lot more study before anything will be known for certain. Scientists believe that the hominid, an adult about
Among the many surprises associated with the discovery of the oldest known, nearly complete skeleton of a hominid is the finding that this species took its first steps toward bipedalism not on the open, grassy savanna, as generations of scientists -- going back to Charles Darwin -- hypothesized, but in a wooded landscape.

In chapter 11 of my book I describe the process by which I believe humans domesticated themselves, compared to chimpanzees. The principle idea evokes a process called neoteny, first described by Ashley Montagu and Steven J Gould, which involves so-called heterochronic shifts in the timing of development from foetus to adult - a staggering or delaying of the developmental clock such that important stages in development get prolonged and delayed. For e.g. childhood and adolescence. Corresponding changes in body, skull and jaw morphology are noticed as a result of neoteny, which might explain Homo sapiens more gracile morphology. Although neoteny has been reported in the pattern of switching on of flows of adeno-corticoseroid stress hormones and some brain neurotransmitters, this concept has not been applied to gene expression - the timing of active protein production in genes. Now a research group including Philipp Khaitovich and Svante Paabo has reported just such a study, documenting a ...

The one departure from the two main stereotypes that Ive come across is in the 1980 David Lynch film The Elephant Man. This is an adaptation of the true-life story of Joseph Merrick, a man who lived in Victorian London who was grossly disfigured by Proteus Syndrome. The original 1942 book written about him by Ashley Montagu is subtitled: A Study in Human Dignity, which is ironic considering how the film dealt with the subject of Hospital Porters. The film considerably deviates from historical facts to add energy to the plot. One of those deviations has Merrick kidnapped, from the hospital where he is being treated, by an unscrupulous freak-show owner and the cruel man who helps to organize the abduction is one of the hospitals porters, played by Michael Elphick. So the score so far for Hospital Porter portrayals is: Conformist Stereotype 1- Evil Greedy Bastard 1! Will things get any better ... Inspire Record 890503 DOI 10.17182/hepdata.73739 The nature of b-quark jet hadronisation has been investigated using data taken at the Z peak by the DELPHI detector at LEP. Two complementary methods are used to reconstruct the energy of weakly decaying b-hadrons, E^weak_B. The average value of x^weak_B = E^weak_B/E_beam is measured to be 0.699 +/- 0.011. The resulting x^weak_B distribution is then analysed in the framework of two choices for the perturbative contribution (parton shower and Next to Leading Log QCD calculation) in order to extract measurements of the non-perturbative contribution to be used in studies of b-hadron production in other experimental environments than LEP. In the parton shower framework, data favour the Lund model ansatz and corresponding values of its parameters have been determined within PYTHIA~6.156 from DELPHI data: a= 1.84^{+0.23}_{-0.21} and b=0.642^{+0.073}_{-0.063} GeV^-2, with a ...
