Chondrodiatasis in a patient with spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia using the Ilizarov technique: successful correction of an angular deformity with ensuing ossification of a large metaphyseal lesion. A case report. (1/315)

Distraction through the physis (chondrodiatasis) is a controversial technique with unpredictable results. However, it has been used in the past for the lengthening and correction of angular deformities of long bones. We report the case of an 11-year-old patient with spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia (SEMD) who presented with a severe recurvatum deformity of the left proximal tibia secondary to collapse of the tibial plateau into a large metaphyseal cystic lesion. Using the chondrodiatasis technique with a percutaneously applied Ilizarov circular frame, we were able to correct this deformity. Surprisingly, healing and ossification of the metaphyseal lesion was simultaneously observed at the end of the treatment, a finding which, to the best of our knowledge, has not been previously reported.  (+info)

The immediate effect of a Boston brace on lung volumes and pulmonary compliance in mild adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. (2/315)

Idiopathic scoliosis (IS) is known to result in lung volume and pulmonary compliance reduction. Boston brace treatment of IS is an additional factor causing restrictive respiratory syndrome due to external chest wall compression. Nevertheless, the immediate effect of Boston bracing on the pulmonary compliance of scoliotic patients has not been studied systematically. Spirometric and plethysmographic lung volumes, static lung compliance (C(ST)(L)) and specific lung compliance (C(ST)(L)/functional residual capacity) of 15 scoliotic adolescents (14 females and 1 male, of mean age 14.1+/-1.67 years, with mean Cobb angle 24.1 degrees+/-7.88 degrees) were recorded twice, in a random sequence: once without the Boston brace (nBB) and once immediately after wearing the brace (BB). Our findings showed that bracing reduced vital capacity, residual volume, functional residual capacity (FRC), total lung capacity, and forced expiratory volume in 1s in a proportional and significant way (P < 0.001). C(ST)(L) was also significantly reduced (P < 0.001), but C(ST)(L)/FRC remained unaltered. All BB and nBB indices were highly correlated. We concluded that Boston bracing in IS patients results in an immediate, predictable, and uniform reduction of lung volumes and pulmonary compliance. The reduction of C(ST)(L) under bracing conditions was related to the decrease of lung volume; the C(ST)(L)/FRC remained unaltered.  (+info)

Involvement of 5-HT1B receptors in collar-induced hypersensitivity to 5-hydroxytryptamine of the rabbit carotid artery. (4/315)

In humans intimal thickening is aprerequisite of atherosclerosis. Application of a silicone collar around the rabbit carotid artery induces an intimal thickening but in addition it increases the sensitivity to the vasoconstrictor action of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT). The 5-HT receptors involved in collar-induced hypersensitivity to 5-HT were investigated using several agonists and antagonists. One week after placement of collars around both carotid arteries of anaesthetized rabbits, rings (2 mm width) from inside (=collar) and outside (=sham) the collars were mounted in organ baths (10 ml) for isometric force measurements at 6 g loading tension. Collared rings were more sensitive to the contractile effect of 5-HT (7.6 fold) and 5-carboxamidotryptamine (31 fold, 5-CT, 5-HT1 agonist) in cumulative concentration response curves. Sumatriptan (5-HT1B/1D agonist) caused concentration-dependent constrictions in collared rings only. Collar placement did not significantly alter pA2 values (Schild regression) or apparent pKb values (non-linear regression) of spiperone and methysergide (mixed 5-HT2A/5-HT1 antagonists) or ketanserin and ritanserin (5-HT2A antagonists), indicating unchanged binding characteristics of the 5-HT2A receptor. However, the reduced slope of the Schild regression pointed to a heterogeneous receptor population in collared rings. In contrast, the apparent pKb value of methiothepin (5-HT1B antagonist) was significantly reduced by collar placement, and its antagonism shifted from non-surmountable in sham rings to surmountable in collared segments. Taken together, this study demonstrates that the serotonergic receptor involved in the hypersensitivity to 5-HT of rabbit collared carotid artery is a 5-HT1B receptor subtype.  (+info)

Halo femoral traction and sliding rods in the treatment of a neurologically compromised congenital scoliosis: technique. (5/315)

In severe congenital scoliosis, traction (whether with a halo or instrumental) is known to expose patients to neurologic complications. However, patients with restrictive lung disease may benefit from halo traction during the course of the surgical treatment. The goal of treatment of such deformities is, therefore, twofold: improvement of the respiratory function and avoidance of any neurologic complications. We report our technique to treat a 17-year-old girl with a multi-operated congenital scoliosis of 145 degrees and cor pulmonale. Pre-operative halo gravity traction improved her vital capacity from 560 c.c. to 700 c.c., but led to mild neurologic symptoms (clonus in the legs). To avoid further neurologic compromise, her first surgery consisted of posterior osteotomies and the implantation of two sliding rods connected to loose dominoes without any attempt at correction. Correction was then achieved over a 3-week period with a halofemoral traction. This allowed the two rods to slide while the neurologic status of the patient was monitored. Her definitive surgery consisted of locking the dominoes and the application of a contralateral rod. Satisfactory outcome was achieved for both correction of the deformity (without neurologic sequels) and improvement of her pulmonary function (1200 c.c. at 2 years). This technique using sliding rods in combination with halofemoral traction can be useful in high-risk, very severe congenital scoliosis.  (+info)

Change of bone mineral density with valgus knee bracing. (6/315)

We assessed the clinical knee score and bone mineral density of the proximal tibia in an attempt to evaluate the efficacy of valgus knee bracing. The knee score improved after 3 months, and increases in bone mineral density were seen more in the lateral tibial condyle than in the medial. These results suggest that the brace acts by transferring the forces across the knee joint from the medial to the lateral side.  (+info)

Arthroscopic reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament with patellar-tendon autograft and interference screw fixation. The results at seven years. (7/315)

Deficiency of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a common disorder which can lead to changes in lifestyle. We followed 59 patients who had had arthroscopic reconstruction of the ACL using a central-third patellar-tendon autograft for seven years to assess the long-term effectiveness of recent advances in reconstruction of the ACL. The standard criteria for evaluation of the International Knee Documentation Committee, the Lysholm knee score and measurements using the KT 1000 arthrometer all showed satisfactory results. Deterioration in the clinical performance after seven years was associated with osteoarthritic changes and correlated with chronic ligament injuries and meniscectomy. There were three traumatic and three spontaneous ruptures. We believe that the procedure can be successful, but remain concerned about failure of the graft and osteoarthritis. The results raise questions about the best time to operate and suggest that early surgery may reduce the risk of osteoarthritis.  (+info)

Does bracing affect self-image? A prospective study on 54 patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. (8/315)

To evaluate the effect of brace treatment on self-image in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, 54 consecutive patients admitted for brace treatment were interviewed before bracing. A prevalidated questionnaire including the following five aspects of self-image was used: (1) body-image, (2) self-perception of skills and talents, (3) emotional well-being, (4) relations with family, and (5) relations with others. As a control group, the answers of 3465 normal school children were used. Forty-six patients participated in a follow-up interview 1.7 (range 0.8-3.0) years later. In addition, during the first interview, the scoliosis patients answered selected questions about their social circumstances and attitudes towards their forthcoming brace treatment. Grossly, the patient group lived in stable family conditions with a high percentage (40%) of fathers and/or mothers with an academic education or with a high employee status. The patients' relations with families were generally good. Nearly all believed that the brace would affect their posture, but only a few thought that wearing the brace would influence their growth. Two-thirds believed that it would be difficult to wear the brace, and often reflected on the use of it. There were no statistically significant differences between the scoliosis patients and the age-matched controls at the pre-bracing nor at the follow-up interviews. Neither were there any statistically significant differences between the answers of the scoliosis patients in the pre-bracing and follow-up interviews. This was valid for the total score as well as for each subscale item score. It is concluded that wearing the brace does not affect the self-image of adolescents with idiopathic scoliosis negatively.  (+info)

Almost all sports include running, which puts you at risk for a rolled ankle or ankle sprain. Many athletes wear sports ankle braces to help prevent these injuries and to provide extra support to the ankle. There several different types of ankle support braces for sports.. Lace Up Ankle Braces - Lace ankle braces are great for athletes who want to control the tightness of the brace at each point of the foot. The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine recently studied basketball players and found that wearing laced ankle braces significantly reduces the chance for ankle injuries.. Recommended: ProCare Lace Up Ankle Brace. Rigid Ankle Braces - Rigid ankle braces have a hard outer shell that allows the ankle to move up and down, and helps prevent too much of the side to side movement that leads to ankle injuries. Rigid ankle braces can be worn to prevent severe ankle injuries - especially if your ankle has already had an injury before. They can also be used immediately after an injury to ...
Lace-up ankle braces were first introduced in 1887 as a basic corset design that restricts all ankle range of motion. Lace-up braces of today will typically have straps that wrap around the ankle in a figure-8.. Since these braces can be laced up as tight as possible, they may give the wearer a false sense of support when they are first applied, however they lose support quickly as they resist the ankles natural range of motion. While lace-up ankle guards may feel comfortable because they are made from fabric, this fabric is also less durable and will easily rip and tear over time… not to mention absorb odors and start to smell pretty bad. Research studies have shown that lace-up ankle braces can restrict performance by resisting the natural up and down range of motion of the ankle. This is one reason why we recommend athletes wear a hinged ankle brace for prevention purposes - this way the ankle does not weaken over time due to being held tightly in place. While all hinged ankle braces are ...
Knee braces can be subdivided into four categories based on their intended use. One category of braces, unloader knee braces, is specifically designed to provide pain relief in arthritic knees. Unloader knee braces, also referred to as off-loader knee braces, are typically custom-made (custom fabricated, custom molded) and are considered for individuals who are unable to be fitted with a prefabricated (off-the-shelf) knee brace. Individuals with osteoarthritis of the knee with varus or valgus deformity often develop increased pain in the affected compartment due to increased mechanical loading. Unloader knee braces are designed and constructed to reduce the asymmetric loading in such knees. In order to decrease the weight on a painful knee joint, an unloader knee brace is designed to provide stability during activities of daily living. There is biomechanical data demonstrating reduction in adduction movement in varus knees when the appropriate unloader brace is used. In a systematic review of ...

Back in the early 1990s, ankle braces were starting to pop up more often on sports courts and playing fields due to improved designs and being less expensive than having an athletes ankle taped. Today, ankle braces are everywhere and available in many different designs, even sport-specific, with the goal of providing additional support following an injury or to prevent an ankle sprain from occurring in the first place.. Using ankle braces to prevent ankle injuries is becoming more common, and Im often asked by coaches, parents and athletes if wearing an ankle brace is worthwhile. Current research indicates ankle brace use in high school-aged athletes lowers the incidence of acute ankle injuries, but not the severity. Ankle braces are not shown to reduce the severity of ankle, knee or other lower extremity injuries. Ankle ligaments, muscle and tendon units and the bones of your ankle create the internal supports to keep your ankle safe. These internal supports are important links from your foot ...
Orthodontic braces have become symbols of wealth and fashion accessories in some parts of the world. However, there is a scarcity of information about the effects of fashion braces on various aspects of quality of life. Therefore, our aim was to investigate the effects of fashion braces on oral health related quality of life (OHRQoL). A cross-sectional study was carried out with data collection from a Google form questionnaire distributed in Saudi Arabia via various forms of social media over a period of 4 months. OHRQoL was assessed using the validated Arabic version of the Oral Health Impact Profile-14 (OHIP-14) questionnaire. The fashion braces group included respondents who had braces installed for fashion purposes only. Therapeutic braces group included subjects who were wearing braces to treat any malocclusion problems. Control group included subjects who did not have any kind of braces. People who had previously completed orthodontic treatments were excluded from the study. The negative impacts

If a curve on the x-ray exceeds a Cobb angle of 20 degrees and the child is still growing, brace treatment is applied. Braces for scoliosis correction have been used since ancient times and are an irreplaceable part of the conservative treatment of scoliosis. The goal is to halt curve progression and to attempt to achieve a full or partial curve correction.. Currently different types and forms of bracing are being used in the world. Braces are custom crafted for each individual and must correspond to the patients spinal curve pattern in order to implement correction during a childs growth period. Bracing traditions in various countries differ . The first successes where achieved in the USA in the 1920s by the Milwaukee brace using a high frame construction and a halo ring under the chin. The form of this brace is however very uncomfortable for the patient, and the results of such brace treatment , from a current standpoint, are not sufficient. Nevertheless, in the USA , Milwaukee-type braces ...
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of ankle bracing on knee kinetics and kinematics during volleyball tasks. Fifteen healthy, elite, female volleyball players performed a series of straight-line and lateral volleyball tasks with no brace and when wearing an ankle brace. A 14-camera Vicon motion analysis system and AMTI force plate were used to capture the kinetic and kinematic data. Knee range of motion, peak knee anterior-posterior and medial-lateral shear forces, and peak ground reaction forces that occurred between initial contact with the force plate and toe off were compared using paired sample t-tests between the braced and nonbraced conditions (P , 0.05). The results revealed no significant effect of bracing on knee kinematics or ground reaction forces during any task or on knee kinetics during the straight-line movement volleyball tasks. However, ankle bracing was demonstrated to reduce knee lateral shear forces during all of the lateral movement volleyball tasks. ...

The curvature is between 20 and 29 degrees and he or she has at least two more years to grow; also if your child is a girl, and has not begun menstruation (NIAMS).. The curvature of the spines natural urge to continue to curve can be prevented by wearing a brace. This method of treatment is more effective for cases that are detected early. Bracing effectiveness is related in large part to the amount of time the brace is worn. Most studies indicate that optimal brace effectiveness is achieved when the brace is worn on average 18 hours/day. In unruly curves it may be necessary to increase brace wear to 23 hours per day to optimize the benefit..

The purpose of this paper is to share with scoliosis professionals the X-rays of different pad placement levels associated with improved curve correction in a case of idiopathic scoliosis (IS). Scoliosis braces of all types and brands utilize common principles of construction that ensure good fit and function. Equally important to the end result is good patient follow-up care and brace quality control by the orthotist. This report reviewed the case of an 11-year-old girl diagnosed with IS, focusing on the in and out-of-brace x-rays, as well as the fit and function of the braces. The first brace was a TLSO-type, the second a Cheneau-type brace using a B1 model following the Rigo classification of scoliosis. The first TLSO-type brace presented an in-brace X-ray that showed a curve increase. The Cheneau-type scoliosis brace reduced the Cobb angles over 50%. The biomechanical changes consequent to modifications in brace design and pad placements appeared to have improved the scoliosis and reduced the Cobb
The following treatment options are available for patients who choose fixed orthodontics: Lingual Braces Lingual braces are almost invisible, as they are bonded to the back of the teeth, but the initial affixation is slightly more complex. Lingual braces are comprised of special custom-made brackets, which are connected by a wire. Many wearers prefer the reduced aesthetic impact with these braces, but some report an initial impairment in speech. Damon System The Damon System is a more discreet alternative to traditional fixed braces. Light wires are initially used to align the teeth, and are replaced with heavier wires as the teeth become straighter. Traditional braces use elastic rings to hold the wires in place, whereas the creators of the Damon System have replaced these rings with tiny sliding doors. The biggest advantage of this replacement is the reduction of friction and discomfort. A reduced amount of friction allows this system of self-ligating braces to correct malocclusions quickly, ...
Progressive idiopathic scoliosis can negatively influence the development and functioning of 2-3% of adolescents, with health consequences and economic costs, placing the disease in the centre of interest of the developmental medicine. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of Chêneau brace in the management of idiopathic scoliosis. A prospective observational study according to SOSORT and SRS recommendations comprised 79 patients (58 girls and 21 boys) with progressive idiopathic scoliosis, treated with Chêneau brace and physiotherapy, with initial Cobb angle between 20 and 45 degrees, no previous brace treatment, Risser 4 or more at the final evaluation and minimum one year follow-up after weaning the brace. Achieving 50° of Cobb angle was considered surgical recommendation. At follow-up 20 patients (25.3%) improved, 18 patients (22.8%) were stable, 31 patients (39.2%) progressed below 50 degrees and 10 patients (12.7%) progressed beyond 50 degrees (2 of these 10 patients
On the first visit, the orthotist gives a complete explanation about how the Original Bending Brace works and how it is tailored to the patients spinal curve(s). Also, the orthotist should encourage the patient and family to pose questions. Next he/she evaluates the patients x-rays and will take a series of measurements on the patient.. About two weeks later, the patient returns for a fitting of the Original Bending Brace, a procedure that takes approximately one hour. The orthotist will then trim and adjust the brace to ensure the best possible function and comfort. A snug fit is the most effective. The orthotist also will draw lines on the straps of the brace to help the patient remember to wear it tightly. Shortly afterwards, the patient will receive the brace along with instructions on its use and wear.. Upon receiving the brace, the patient next visits the doctor for an x-ray of his/her spine in the brace. The x-ray should display a dramatic decrease in the curve(s) indicating that the ...

Workers who use hand-held power tools absorb significant vibration energy in their arms and hands and may develop musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as carpal tunnel syndrome and hand-arm vibration syndrome. Protective braces may be worn to decrease the incidence of occupational MSDs. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health has identified key attributes for protective braces; these attributes include vibration damping, comfort, non-interference with worker dexterity, and maintenance of safe hand temperature. Most currently available braces do not adequately address these NIOSH requirements. This study will evaluate the efficacy of a brace with piezoelectric damping material.. Participants in the study will be fitted with a brace on each hand. One brace will have piezoelectric damping material and the other will be a currently available, off-the-shelf commercial brace. Hand-held joysticks and handles mounted to a vibration shaker table will be used to simulate power tool use. ...
I was wandering if there was anyone here who has worn or is still wearing a Milwaukee brace? My wife has Kyphosis with a very mild scoliosis curve. Recently we have tried a few different braces to help with her back pain. The first brace was a TLSO brace which was poorly made and fitted and she would not wear it. Currently she is wearing a modified knight-taylor brace which is helping. Her doctor told her orthotist to make the brace to how much restriction she could tolerate. My thought on
A common problem with orthodontic braces is the buildup of bacteria and plaque around the brackets. When not treated vigilantly, they can contribute to enamel damage and long-lasting surface discoloration. The type of braces you wear can also determine how much bacteria and plaque accumulates. A recent study found that elastomeric braces are more prone to unhealthy buildup than self-ligating braces, such as Damon System braces. Researchers found much more bacteria, including streptococci, on teeth treated with elastomeric brackets, noting especially high levels just one week after bonding. Regardless of which kind of braces you wear, meticulous hygiene is a must. It will be hard to enjoy your newly straightened teeth when the braces come off if theyre unhealthy and stained.. ...

One of the most commonly asked questions about dental braces is whether placing them causes any pain or discomfort. The honest answer is that braces do not hurt at all when they are applied to the teeth, so there is no reason to be anxious. In most cases, there is mild soreness or discomfort after the orthodontic wire is engaged into the brackets, which may last for a few days.. There are two common types of fixed dental braces used to realign the teeth: ceramic fixed braces and metal fixed braces. Both types of fixed appliances include brackets which are affixed to each individual tooth and an archwire the orthodontist fits into the bracket slot to gently move the teeth into proper alignment. Elastic or wire ties will be applied to hold the wire in place. Some orthodontists may use self-ligating brackets which do not require a rubber or wire tie to secure the wire.. Fixed dental braces are used to treat a wide variety of malocclusions, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, and overcrowding. ...

Abstract ??? Decreases in patellofemoral pain have been demonstrated with bracing; however, the mechanisms of pain reduction remain unclear. Our purpose was to evaluate the hypothesis that patellofemoral bracing decreases peak pressure on the retropatellar surface through an increase in patellofemoral contact area. Nine cadaveric knees were tested during simulated free-speed walking with no brace, a knee sleeve, two different patellar stabilization sleeves, and a wrap-style patellar stabilization brace. Contact area and pressure were measured using a dynamic pressure sensor located in the patellofemoral joint. For the unbraced knee, contact area and peak pressure varied with knee flexion angle, ranging from 0.30 ?? 0.3 cm2 and 1.80 ?? 1.7 MPa at full extension to 2.28 ?? 0.5 cm2 and 4.19 ?? 1.7 MPa at peak knee flexion. All braces increased contact area, while the wrap-style brace decreased peak pressure (p , 0.001). Sleeve braces compress the quadriceps tendon causing the patella to engage the ...

Abstract: Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is defined as curvature of spine in the coronal plane with a Cobb angle of more than 10°. AIS affects 1-3% of children younger than 16 years of age. Less than 20% of those children will progress to severe deformity requiring interventions. Screening with clinical examination and selective radiographic assessment seems to be a cost-effective approach to filter specialist referrals but current literature is controversial. Evidence supports brace management of AIS for skeletally immature patients with primary scoliosis measuring 25°-40. The risk reduction for progression to the surgical range (deformity greater than 50 degrees) is 56%. Timely diagnosis and evidence-based brace management of AIS seem likely to reduce the surgical burden. The implementation of screening guidelines at the primary care level is a critical step ...

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) involves complex tridimensional deformities of the spine. In case of progressive curve deformity, the use of spinal bracing remains the standard non operative treatment of moderate AIS. Most of the time, the different types of braces dont take into account the individual biomechanical properties of each patients spine. Actually, it is essential to better understand the effect of the loads applied on the trunk and on the spine, and a 3D geometrical modelisation of these components is essential. Many studies have been publishing concerning the use of radiographs for the geometrical reconstruction of the spine, and more recently the EOS system. But even then, it is still necessary to obtain an important number of geometrical data and discretisation is still a long procedure ...
