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)

Bilateral anterior shoulder fracture-dislocation. A case report and a review of the literature. (3/315)

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)

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 ...
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 ...

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 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.

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, ...
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
What are behind teeth braces? Braces are an example of a dental appliance that is specifically used by orthodontists and dentists to move teeth. When a patient is dealing with a cosmetic issue that involves the arrangement, position and alignment of their teeth, he can choose to see a dentist or an orthodontist to get a smile that is straight and so much more beautiful.

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. ...
Fortunately, orthodontic braces have been adapted and modified to make them more convenient for adults. There are now a wide range of fixed and removable orthodontic devices available, depending on the precise classification of the malocclusion. The most common types of malocclusion are underbite (lower teeth protrude further than upper teeth), overbite (upper teeth protrude further than lower teeth), and overcrowding where there is insufficient space on the arches to accommodate the full complement of adult teeth. Prior to recommending specific orthodontic treatment, the orthodontist will recommend treatment of any pre-existing dental conditions such as gum disease, excess plaque, and tooth decay. Orthodontic braces can greatly exacerbate any or all of these conditions.. What are the main types of orthodontic braces?. The following are some of the most popular orthodontic braces:. Traditional braces - These braces are strong and tend not to stain the teeth. They are comprised of individual ...

Braces Emigration Plan was also an anti-eugenic movement because Brace believed that ones "gemmules" (an early, pre-genetic concept that blood carried a familys heritability and character) did not predetermine ones future. Brace was deeply moved by Charles Darwins Origin of Species, having read it thirteen times.[12] Brace was also an outspoken abolitionist. In a bold move (and perhaps inspired by his abolitionist and Darwinian mindset), Brace did away with the centuries-old custom of indenture so that the "placed" children were allowed to leave a home if they were uncomfortable with the placement. Braces vision of migrating children to live with the western Christian farming families was widely supported by wealthy New York families - the first $50 was given by Mrs. John Astor in 1853.. The Childrens Aid Society (CAS), the best-known organization finding homes for children, made efforts to screen the host families and follow up on the welfare of placed children. By 1909, at the first ...

Matapos ang specialization saka lang siya makakapanggamot sa pamamagitan ng braces. Kung ang simpleng tao ang naglagay ng braces, sa tingin mo alam niya ang pinagaralan ng isang dentist sa loob ng 7-9 years? Kahit magbasa siya nang magbasa o manood ng videos ng braces, hindi niya matututunan yun. Sa maling position pa lang ng brackets, malaking damage na ang pwedeng magawa.

The ACL or anterior cruciate ligament is one of 4 major ligaments in the knee. It provides stability to the joint and is the most frequently injured, more so in women than in men. When injuring the ACL people will often report hearing a "pop." Athletes are more predisposed to injuring the ACL, taking into consideration that stops and starts and quick lateral movements are precipitating factors of the injury. Those wishing to protect the ACL from injury or those people who have already injured the tissue may wear ACL braces. An ACL brace will simply provide stability and safeguard against overextending the joint. The braces used here at the Atlantic Spine & Joint Institute are "unloading braces" which are designed specifically for osteoarthritis of the knee. These osteoarthritis braces do not necessarily provide stability for the ACL but will provide relief for those people suffering from knee arthritis. On occasion we do have patients who suffer from both osteoarthritis of the knee and ACL ...
Orthodontic braces were historically associated with teenagers. Today, an increasing number of adults are choosing to wear braces to straighten their teeth and correct malocclusions (bad bites). In fact, it is now estimated that almost one third of all current orthodontic patients are adults.. Orthodontic braces are predictable, versatile and incredibly successful at realigning the teeth. Braces work in the same way regardless of the age of the patient, but the treatment time is greatly reduced in patients who are still experiencing jaw growth and have not been affected by gum disease. In short, an adult can experience the same beautiful end results as a teenager, but treatment often takes longer.. Can adults benefit from orthodontic braces?. Absolutely! Crooked or misaligned teeth look unsightly, which in many cases leads to poor self esteem and a lack of self confidence. Aside from poor aesthetics, improperly aligned teeth can also cause difficulties biting, chewing and articulating clearly. ...
Each patient may have the same or a completely different set of braces. The duration required for the braces to fully take effect also differs per patient. Some could last from one to three years or longer in some cases. Cleaning the teeth with the braces in place requires caution. Hitting the braces while brushing the teeth can dislodge the brackets, which will then need to be cemented back in place. Brushing will be done in the same way, but gently in areas where the braces are located. Its also best to clean in between teeth with dental floss. This takes out the food lodged in between the teeth that cant be removed by brushing alone. Adults will find the process easier than children. Parents should guide their kids on how to properly do the cleaning until they make it a habit.. ...
According a research report from University of Manchester, a knee brace is a more effective remedy to pain control as compared to other medications like joint pills. Various reports have continued to show more and more people are undergoing knee replacements but with little improvements. Others have continued to use pain pills but they still continue to experience the same problem. According to Dr. Michael Callaghan, a researcher in rehabilitation science at UM; the use of a lightweight knee brace will dramatically improve the symptoms and function of the patients who are suffering from osteoarthritis that affects the kneecap. In his study, he used a flexible knee brace made of lightweight Lycra. The Test subjects with arthritic pain were aged between 40 and 70 and they used the device for 12 weeks and it averaged seven hours a day. He divided the groups into two; the first group begun wearing the device immediately and while the other one begun wearing it after some delay. ...

The Sforzesco brace has been developed recently, but it is already one of the most tested TLSOs in the very weak scientific history of bracing. We are not able to compare it with any other that we did not use personally, but we can already state according to our results that its efficacy is higher than that of the Lyon brace [10], and comparable (or even higher as well) to that of the Risser cast [16]. In fact, we use to think of the Sforzesco brace as a cast, with the great advantage on one hand that it can be removed to greatly increase patient comfort, and on the other hand that it can be used from the beginning to the end of treatment without problems, which cannot be done with the Risser cast. We cannot exclude in the future the possibility that the cast (or the Lyon brace) will still find a place in scoliosis treatment for some particular curves or patients, but we are not able now to exactly identify these clinical situations.. According to the reported results, we have a strong basis for ...

Clear ceramic braces are a new variation on the traditional system that provides a far less noticeable method of treatment. They use the same components as traditional braces - except that the brackets on the front side of the teeth are made of a translucent ceramic material that blends in with the tooths natural color. This system has become a favorite for adults (including some well-known celebrities) because, unless you look closely, its hard to notice theyre there.. Several types of ceramic braces are currently available, and the technology is constantly improving. Their aesthetic appeal is undeniable... but there are a few tradeoffs. The ceramic brackets can be less durable than their metal counterparts; plus, while the brackets themselves dont stain, the elastic bands that attach them to the archwire do (however, these are generally changed each month.) Ceramic braces also cost more than metal - but for many people, the benefit of having an inconspicuous appliance outweighs the ...

The main advantage is the improved technology used in the design of the braces; a slide mechanism replaces the usual wire brackets and elastic set-up, which leads to quicker treatment times, more comfortable braces and a system that can exert stronger forces on teeth that are badly out of position.

The safe and responsible way to use this brace is with a proper shoulder mount. Fired in that way, the brace would work safely and comfortably. Unfortunately, that requires a license I dont possess when the brace is mounted on this AR-style pistol.. This brace is durable, attractive, and a definite upgrade in practicality and looks from Sig Sauers original. S-B Tactical has done a nice job with design. Their product information needs to be updated online to reflect this. A simple paper insert with installation instructions would be helpful too. Its a nice brace, but overpriced. Id not shell out $149.99 for advantages that dont contribute to better shooting.. Its a shame that nice products like this are subject to asinine regulations that truly reveal the agenda of gun legislation - to restrict consumer choices and privacy while filling a bureau-controlled till. Gun control advocates like to use the word "safety," but the legislation they support often contributes to unnecessary or unsafe ...

An ankle brace is a garment that is worn around the ankle to protect it or for immobilization while allowing it to heal. Ankle braces are used to immobilize the joint while providing heat and compression to the bones. They are common in injury rehabilitation processes that affect the ankle, being made of rigid fabric such nylon and neoprene that allow limited mobility of the foot and conform to the ankle by a hook and loop fastener. To ensure its fixation, the foot portion may include metal pieces. In severe cases, they incorporate metallic plates to better immobilize the joint. They are indicated for ankle trauma with small fractures or without fracture, immobilization of the joint, postoperative synovitis, sprains or inflammations of the joint, weak muscles in the ankle, among others. In rehabilitation are used to immobilize the ankle in a neutral position, which "theoretically minimizes stress at the repair site". Finally, are used in sports where the ankle is under stress, as in soccer, ...

The axillary extension lies just below the shoulder. It should be applied to the lateral surface of the upper part of the sides of the thorax, so as to maintain a direct inward force on this. In essence, it acts by shifting the upper part of the thoracic curve. It comprises the highest lateral component of the DDB module, figure 3a.. The abdominal apron is the front part of the module and extends in a way that includes the abdominal area and covers the edges of the sides and the xyphoid process, taking particular care not to impact on the sides. This part is flat on its front surface, allowing rectification of the body in the module, figure 3a.. Several parts of the brace are reinforced with pre-contoured, aluminium metallic bars (of approximately 1.6 cm in breadth and 0.35 cm in thickness) or bars of similar dimensions made of plastic similar to the plastic sheet of the brace proper. For a brace for a right thoracic curve, the right subaxillary metallic bar ascends up to the lateral third right ...

Ive often found this warning to be a nuisance, because its correct and well-defined to omit some braces from the initializer. There are many cases where the warning is useful, e.g. with aggregates that have several members (which may be aggregates themselves), but when the type contains a single member (possibly of array type) then the extra braces are often just clutter. Pff the top of my head, I would like a way to disable the warning iff the aggregate has a single member and iff the initializer contains exactly the right number of elements to initialize that single member. e.g. struct S { int s[3]; }; S s1 = { 1, 1, 1 }; // OK - missing braces but correct number S s2 = { 1, 1 }; // WARN - no initializer for s2.s[2] S s3 = { { 1, 1 } }; // OK - braces correct but missing init I dont think this would be useful only for tr1::array, but for lots of similar code. Obvious and closely-related examples are the block and carray templates in Austern and Josuttiss books ...

A plate is a plastic appliance, often with wires and springs, which is worn on either the top or bottom teeth or both. They are generally used in children before they have their full adult dentition to correct simple orthodontic problems. They may move teeth or hold them in place as your childs jaws develop and adult teeth erupt. Plates are not attached to teeth so your child must be committed to wearing it as instructed by the orthodontist.. Braces are usually used to correct simple or complex orthodontic problems - usually when your child has their full adult dentition. However, it is now relatively common for children to have partial braces (braces on some teeth only) for a short period of time before the eruption of their adult dentition. This is because it may be more efficient to correct certain problems when theyre younger. It may also be a good option if your child is not committed to wearing their plate as regularly as they should.. We often get asked if it is necessary to have plates ...

grade II sprain- Immobilization into extension with long leg brace for 3-6 weeks post injury.. *use of knee bracing with return to sport is a controversial issue. In a 2005 study by Najibi et. al., they compared the risk of MCL re-injury in football players who wore prophylactic knee braces during practice and games vs. players who did not wear a brace. All 987 players had a past history of medial collateral ligament sprain. They concluded that wearing a knee brace offered 20-30% protection to the MCL towards a valgus force in contact sports. Despite this finding many players reported negative effects on performance level, increased leg cramping, increasing energy expenditure, restricting agility and increased fatigue of the LE muscles associated with wearing a brace during activity. Due to the negative effects on performance, compliance with brace use has become a challenge in the athletic population.. ...

Knee strength deficits after hamstring tendon and patellar tendon anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Knee bracing after ACL reconstruction: effects on postural control and proprioception
Rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) increases anterior-posterior (AP) laxity. The treatment aims to reduce or teach the patient to control this instability. Altered kinematics due to absent ligament function may result in knee arthrosis. This study evaluated the clinical and functional results of reconstructive surgery. Roentgen stereophotogrammetry (RSA) was used to analyse the stabilising effect of knee braces, reconstructive surgery and the kinematics of the knee with and without weight-bearing.. The stability of the knees were assessed in 86 patients with ACL injuries before and/or after reconstructive surgery with the RSA technique and with the KT-1000 arthrometer The KT- 1000 (89 N) recorded smaller side to side differences than the RSA set-up without any correlation between the methods.. The effect of three different braces on the AP and rotatory laxity was studied on patients with ACL injuries. The ECKO and the modified Lenox Hill reduced the instability with about one third. ...
