Bethlem myopathy: a slowly progressive congenital muscular dystrophy with contractures. (1/56)

Bethlem myopathy is an early-onset benign autosomal dominant myopathy with contractures caused by mutations in collagen type VI genes. It has been reported that onset occurs in early childhood. We investigated the natural course of Bethlem myopathy in five previously published kindreds and two novel pedigrees, with particular attention to the mode of onset in 23 children and the progression of weakness in 36 adult patients. Our analysis shows that nearly all children exhibit weakness or contractures during the first 2 years of life. Early features include diminished foetal movements, neonatal hypotonia and congenital contractures which are of a dynamic nature during childhood. The course of Bethlem myopathy in adult patients is less benign than previously thought. Due to slow but ongoing progression, more than two-thirds of patients over 50 years of age use a wheelchair.  (+info)

An electromyographic study of the hip abductor muscles as subjects with a hip prosthesis walked with different methods of using a cane and carrying a load. (2/56)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Certain methods of carrying handheld loads or using a cane can reduce the demands placed on the hip abductor (HA) muscles and the loads on the underlying prosthetic hip. In certain conditions, unusually large forces from the HA muscles may contribute to premature loosening of a prosthetic hip. The purpose of this study was to examine HA use by measuring the amplitude of the electromyographic (EMG) signal from the HA muscles as subjects carried a load and simultaneously used a cane. SUBJECTS: Twenty-four active subjects (mean age = 63.3 years, SD = 10.7, range = 40-86) with a unilateral prosthetic hip were tested. METHODS: The HA muscle surface EMG activity was analyzed as subjects carried loads weighing 5%, 10%, or 15% of body weight held by either their contralateral or ipsilateral arm relative to their prosthetic hip. They simultaneously used a cane with their free hand. RESULTS: The contralateral cane and ipsilateral load conditions produced HA muscle EMG activity that was approximately 40% less than the EMG activity produced while walking without carrying a load or using a cane. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: People who are in danger of premature loosening of their prosthetic hip should, if possible, avoid carrying loads. If a load must be carried, however, then the contralateral cane and ipsilateral load condition appears to minimize the loads placed on the prosthetic hip due to HA muscle activity.  (+info)

Health impact of pain in the hip region with and without radiographic evidence of osteoarthritis: a study of new attenders to primary care. The PCR Hip Study Group. (3/56)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the health impact of hip pain at the time of first presentation to primary care, and the influence on this of radiographic evidence of osteoarthritis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Cross sectional survey of 195 patients (63 male, 132 female), aged 40 years and over, presenting with a new episode of hip pain, recruited from 35 general practices across the UK. Health status at presentation was determined by a structured questionnaire on symptoms, healthcare use, and health related quality of life (SF-36). Pelvic radiographs were assessed blindly for hip osteoarthritis using standard scoring systems. RESULTS: The overall impact on health was substantial. Before their first consultation, three quarters of patients needed analgesics, half used topical creams or ointments, and one in eight used a walking stick. Most of these impact measures were, however, unrelated to the degree of radiographic change, though use of a walking stick was increased in those with the most severe damage. Health status, as judged by the SF-36, was also impaired for measures of physical function and pain, but the impact on the "mental health", "general health", and "vitality" dimensions was small. There was a weak relation between the SF-36 scores and radiographic change, with many domains unrelated to the severity of radiographic damage. CONCLUSIONS: This study is the first to show the therapeutic impact and pattern of impairment in health status resulting from hip pain at the time of first presentation to the healthcare services. Unlike many regional pain syndromes seen in primary care, such as back pain, hip pain does not impact on wider aspects of quality of life, such as general health status, mental health, or vitality. Furthermore, any impact of hip pain in this group is not markedly influenced by the degree of structural damage. Further follow up is required to determine whether such damage influences the persistence of any adverse impact.  (+info)

Nutritional supplementation of elderly hip fracture patients. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. (4/56)

BACKGROUND: undernourishment is common in elderly hip fracture patients and has been linked to poorer recovery and increased post-operative complications. OBJECTIVE: to determine whether a nutritional supplement may (i) help elderly patients return to pre-fracture functional levels 6 months post-fracture and (ii) decrease fracture-related complications and mortality. DESIGN: a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial. SETTING: a county hospital near Barcelona. SUBJECTS: 171 patients, aged 70 and older, hospitalized for hip fracture between July 1994 and July 1996. METHODS: we randomized patients to intervention (n = 85) or control (n = 86) group. Patients received a nutritional supplement containing 20 g of protein and 800 mg of calcium or placebo for 60 days. We determined functional levels by the Barthel index, the mobility index and by the use of walking aids. We performed assessments during hospitalization and at 2 and 6 months post-fracture. FINDINGS: the two groups were comparable at study entry. We observed no differences in return to functional status 6 months post-fracture (61% intervention group vs 55% in control group) nor in fracture-related mortality (13% in intervention group vs 10% in control group). The intervention group suffered fewer in-hospital [odds ratio 1.88 (95% CI 1.01 - 3.53), P = 0.05] and total complications [odds ratio 1.94 (95% CI 1.02-3.7), P = 0.04] than the control group. CONCLUSION: based on our results, we cannot recommend routine nutritional supplementation of all elderly hip fracture patients. While nutritional supplementation may be useful in decreasing complications, this reduction does not result in improvement in functional recovery and nor does it decrease fracture-related mortality. Selected patients may, however, benefit from nutritional supplementation.  (+info)

Balance and mobility following stroke: effects of physical therapy interventions with and without biofeedback/forceplate training. (5/56)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Visual biofeedback/forceplate systems are often used for treatment of balance disorders. In this study, the researchers investigated whether the addition of visual biofeedback/forceplate training could enhance the effects of other physical therapy interventions on balance and mobility following stroke. SUBJECTS: The study included a sample of convenience of 13 outpatients with hemiplegia who ranged in age from 30 to 77 years (mean=60.4, SD=15.4) and were 15 to 538 days poststroke. METHODS: Subjects were assigned randomly to either an experimental group or a control group when the study began, and their cognitive and visual-perceptual skills were tested by a psychologist. Subjects were also assessed using the Berg Balance Scale and the Timed "Up & Go" Test before and after 4 weeks of physical therapy. Both groups received physical therapy interventions designed to improve balance and mobility 2 to 3 times per week. The experimental group trained on the NeuroCom Balance Master for 15 minutes of each 50-minute treatment session. The control group received other physical therapy for 50 minutes. RESULTS: Following intervention, both groups scored higher on the Berg Balance Scale and required less time to perform the Timed "Up & Go" Test. These improvements corresponded to increased independence of balance and mobility in the study population. However, a comparison of mean changes revealed no differences between groups. DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Although both groups demonstrated improvement following 4 weeks of physical therapy interventions, no additional effects were found in the group that received visual biofeedback/forceplate training combined with other physical therapy.  (+info)

Full weight-bearing after cementless total hip arthroplasty. (6/56)

In a prospective study of cementless total hip arthroplasty, 19 hips in 17 patients (Group A) were allowed full weight-bearing immediately after the operation while 18 hips in 16 patients (Group B) were first allowed weight-bearing after 6 weeks. Patients were matched for sex, age at surgery, height, weight, and follow-up period and there were no significant differences in hip scores between the two groups. Rehabilitation to gain walking ability with a cane lasted 5.8 days for Group A and 44.8 days for Group B (P = 0.0001). The hospital stay after surgery was 30.1 days for Group A and 46.7 days for Group B (P = 0.006). All patients showed bone ingrowth radiographically. There were no complications in either group.  (+info)

Upper-limb pain in long-term poliomyelitis. (7/56)

BACKGROUND: Late functional deterioration is common in long-term poliomyelitis patients. While upper-limb pain in individual functional regions is common, its overall prevalence and pattern in long-term poliomyelitis is poorly documented. AIM: To assess the nature of upper-limb pain in these patients and examine its association with dependence on mobility aids (and therefore upper limb 'overuse'). DESIGN: Questionnaire-based survey of patients attending a specialist unit. METHODS: Questionnaires were sent to 139 patients with known long-term poliomyelitis (mean 49.8 years post polio), attending the Lane Fox Unit out-patient clinic at St Thomas' Hospital between January 1998 and December 1998. There were questions on the nature of the patient's acute illness, limb involvement at initial infection ('polio-affected' limbs), the site and onset of upper-limb pain, hand dominance, previous injuries and surgery, and the use of mobility aids. Limbs that had sustained an injury or undergone surgery, at or preceding onset of upper-limb pain, were excluded from analysis. RESULTS: Among 103 valid replies, the prevalence of upper limb pain was 64%. Mobility aids were used by 74%, and were associated with an increased risk of upper-limb pain, while 'polio-affected' limbs were at reduced risk. DISCUSSION: These data support 'overuse' due to greater mobility aid dependence as a cause of increasing upper-limb pain in long-term poliomyelitis.  (+info)

The effect of walking aids on balance and weight-bearing patterns of patients with hemiparesis in various stance positions. (8/56)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Standard and quad canes are often prescribed to patients with hemiparesis, yet their effect on postural control remains unclear. Thus, the objective of this study was to examine the effects of standard and quad canes on postural sway and on weight-bearing patterns in patients with hemiparesis. SUBJECTS: Thirty subjects with a diagnosis of unilateral hemiparesis following a stroke (patient group; mean age=71.2 years, SD=7.0) and 20 age-matched, community-dwelling volunteers without hemiparesis (comparison group; mean age=72.1 years, SD=5.2) participated in the study. METHODS: Postural sway and percentage of body weight (%BW) borne by each extremity were measured in 3 positions: with the heels aligned with each other (aligned position) and in staggered foot positions with either the affected or unaffected extremity placed forward (affected FW and unaffected FW positions). All subjects were tested in each position with no cane, a standard cane, and a quad cane. The order of tests was randomized, and analysis of data included use of an analysis of variance and adjusted Tukey-Kramer tests. RESULTS: In both the aligned and unaffected FW positions, postural sway was reduced only with the quad cane. Both types of canes reduced postural sway in the affected FW position; however, the quad cane had a greater effect. An asymmetrical weight distribution between the lower extremities did not change in the patient group across positions, even with walking aids. DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: A quad cane appears to be more effective than a standard cane in decreasing postural sway in patients with moderate impairment secondary to hemiparesis during stance. The greatest effect on postural sway occurred when the assistive device was contralateral to the foot placed forward. The use of a cane does not appear to adversely affect the asymmetrical weight-bearing pattern during stance that is characteristic of patients with hemiparesis, even when balance is challenged by decreasing the base of support.  (+info)

The term "canes" is a common name for walking sticks that are used as a mobility aid. They are typically made of materials such as wood, metal, or fiberglass and have a handle at the top and a single foot at the bottom to provide support and stability while walking.

However, in medical terminology, "canes" does not have a specific definition. It is simply another name for walking sticks or walking canes. If you are looking for a medical definition related to a specific medical condition or treatment, could you please provide more context?

"Saccharum" is not a medical term, but a genus name in botany. It refers to the sugarcane plant (*Saccharum officinarum*), which is a tall perennial grass native to tropical regions of Southeast Asia. The sap of this plant contains high amounts of sucrose and has been used as a sweetener for thousands of years.

In a medical context, "saccharum" might be encountered in the form of sugar-based ingredients, such as dextrose (glucose) or sucrose, which are derived from sugarcane or other sugar-rich plants. These substances can be used in various medical applications, including intravenous fluids and nutritional supplements.

'Bufo marinus' is the scientific name for a species of toad commonly known as the Cane Toad or Giant Toad. This toad is native to Central and South America, but has been introduced to various parts of the world including Florida, Australia, and several Pacific islands. The toad produces a toxic secretion from glands on its back and neck, which can be harmful or fatal if ingested by pets or humans.

Self-help devices, also known as assistive devices or adaptive equipment, are tools that help individuals perform activities of daily living (ADLs) that have become difficult or impossible due to disability, injury, or aging. These devices can help improve a person's independence, safety, and quality of life by reducing the physical demands of daily tasks and compensating for functional limitations.

Examples of self-help devices include:

1. Mobility aids: walkers, canes, crutches, wheelchairs, scooters, and prosthetics that help with mobility and balance.
2. Bathroom aids: raised toilet seats, shower chairs, grab bars, and non-slip mats that help with bathing and toileting.
3. Dressing aids: button hooks, zipper pulls, reachers, and dressing sticks that help with dressing and grooming.
4. Kitchen aids: easy-grip utensils, jar openers, and adapted cutting boards that help with meal preparation and cooking.
5. Communication aids: speech-generating devices, communication boards, and hearing aids that help with communication and social interaction.
6. Cognitive aids: memory aids, calendar organizers, and visual cues that help with memory, attention, and executive functioning.

It is important to consult with healthcare professionals, such as occupational therapists or physical therapists, to determine the appropriate self-help devices for an individual's specific needs and to ensure proper use and safety.

Dependent ambulation is a term used in medical context to describe a person's ability to walk or move around, but only with assistance from another person or the use of assistive devices such as crutches, walkers, or wheelchairs. This means that the person is not able to safely and independently navigate their environment on their own due to physical limitations, balance issues, mobility impairments, or other health conditions.

Dependent ambulation can be temporary or permanent, depending on the underlying cause of the impairment. For example, a person who has undergone surgery may require dependent ambulation during the recovery period, while someone with a progressive neurological condition may require long-term assistance with mobility.

Healthcare professionals, such as physical therapists and occupational therapists, often work with individuals who require dependent ambulation to help them improve their strength, balance, and mobility through various exercises and interventions. The goal is to help the person become as independent as possible and reduce their reliance on assistive devices or other people for mobility.

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "Molasses" is not a medical term. It is a byproduct of the sugar refining process. Specifically, it is a thick, dark brown liquid that is left over after the sugar crystals have been removed from sugarcane or sugar beet juice. It contains significant amounts of sugar, as well as various nutrients like calcium, magnesium, and potassium. While it may be used in some folk remedies, it's not a term used in medical terminology.

Myxozoa is a group of microscopic, primarily freshwater, parasitic cnidarians. They have complex life cycles involving one or more intermediate hosts, such as annelids or mollusks, and a definitive host, usually a fish. The adult stage of the parasite develops in the tissues of the definitive host, while the larval stages infect the muscles, gills, or other organs of the intermediate hosts.

Myxozoans are characterized by their small size (usually less than 1 mm), simple body structure, and unique spore stage. The spores contain one or two polar capsules, which are coiled structures that release thread-like filaments to help the spores attach to host tissues.

Myxozoans can cause significant damage to their hosts, leading to diseases such as whirling disease in fish and proliferative kidney disease in salmonids. These parasites have a wide geographic distribution and are found in both wild and farmed aquatic animals.

In the context of medical and ecological health, an "introduced species" refers to a plant or animal population that has been intentionally or unintentionally introduced by human actions into a new environment, outside of their natural historical range, where they do not have any known native predecessors. These introductions can occur through various means such as accidental transportation in cargo, deliberate releases for purposes like biological control or pets, and escapes from cultivation.

Introduced species can become invasive if they adapt well to their new environment, reproduce rapidly, outcompete native species for resources, and disrupt local ecosystems. This can lead to significant ecological changes, loss of biodiversity, impacts on human health, and economic consequences. Some introduced species carry diseases or parasites that can affect humans, livestock, and wildlife in the new environment, posing potential public health concerns.

The education of visually disabled refers to the specialized teaching and learning methods, materials, and environments designed to meet the unique needs and abilities of individuals with visual impairments. This includes those who are blind, have low vision, or have other visual disorders that impact their ability to access and process information in traditional educational settings.

The education of visually disabled may involve the use of assistive technologies such as screen readers, magnifiers, and Braille displays, as well as adaptive teaching strategies that emphasize tactile, auditory, and kinesthetic learning modalities. It also includes training in daily living skills, orientation and mobility, and social interaction to promote independence and self-advocacy.

The goal of the education of visually disabled is to provide students with equal access to educational opportunities and to help them develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for success in academic, vocational, and personal pursuits.

Crutches are medical devices that provide support and assistance for mobility, typically used by individuals who have difficulty walking or standing due to injury, illness, or disability. They help to reduce weight-bearing stress on the affected limb, improve balance, and increase stability during ambulation. Crutches can be either manually operated or designed with special features such as springs or shock absorbers to enhance comfort and functionality. Proper fit, adjustment, and usage of crutches are crucial for ensuring safety, preventing further injury, and promoting rehabilitation.

Parasitic diseases, animal, refer to conditions in animals that are caused by parasites, which are organisms that live on or inside a host and derive benefits from the host at its expense. Parasites can be classified into different groups such as protozoa, helminths (worms), and arthropods (e.g., ticks, fleas).

Parasitic diseases in animals can cause a wide range of clinical signs depending on the type of parasite, the animal species affected, and the location and extent of infection. Some common examples of parasitic diseases in animals include:

* Heartworm disease in dogs and cats caused by Dirofilaria immitis
* Coccidiosis in various animals caused by different species of Eimeria
* Toxoplasmosis in cats and other animals caused by Toxoplasma gondii
* Giardiasis in many animal species caused by Giardia spp.
* Lungworm disease in dogs and cats caused by Angiostrongylus vasorum or Aelurostrongylus abstrusus
* Tapeworm infection in dogs, cats, and other animals caused by different species of Taenia or Dipylidium caninum

Prevention and control of parasitic diseases in animals typically involve a combination of strategies such as regular veterinary care, appropriate use of medications, environmental management, and good hygiene practices.

6. Health information specialists: Professionals in this field manage and analyze health data, maintain medical records, and ensure the security and privacy of patient information.

Overall, health occupations play a crucial role in maintaining, promoting, and restoring the health and well-being of individuals and communities.

Bufonidae is a family of toads, characterized by the presence of parotoid glands that produce bufotoxins, a group of toxic secretions. These toads are found worldwide, except for Australia, New Zealand, Madagascar, and some isolated islands. They vary in size, shape, and coloration, depending on the species. Some notable members of this family include the common toad (Bufo bufo) and the Colorado River toad (Incilius alvarius). It is important to note that while these toads have toxic secretions, they are not typically harmful to humans unless ingested or if their secretions come into contact with mucous membranes or broken skin.

Orthopedic equipment refers to devices or appliances used in the practice of orthopedics, which is a branch of medicine focused on the correction, support, and prevention of disorders, injuries, or deformities of the skeletal system, including bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. These devices can be categorized into various types based on their function and application:

1. Mobility aids: Equipment that helps individuals with impaired mobility to move around more easily, such as walkers, crutches, canes, wheelchairs, and scooters.
2. Immobilization devices: Used to restrict movement of a specific body part to promote healing, prevent further injury, or provide support during rehabilitation, including casts, braces, splints, slings, and collars.
3. Prosthetics: Artificial limbs that replace missing body parts due to amputation, illness, or congenital defects, enabling individuals to perform daily activities and maintain independence.
4. Orthotics: Custom-made or off-the-shelf devices worn inside shoes or on the body to correct foot alignment issues, provide arch support, or alleviate pain in the lower extremities.
5. Rehabilitation equipment: Devices used during physical therapy sessions to improve strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination, such as resistance bands, exercise balls, balance boards, and weight training machines.
6. Surgical instruments: Specialized tools used by orthopedic surgeons during operations to repair fractures, replace joints, or correct deformities, including saws, drills, retractors, and screwdrivers.
7. Diagnostic equipment: Imaging devices that help healthcare professionals assess musculoskeletal conditions, such as X-ray machines, CT scanners, MRI machines, and ultrasound systems.

These various types of orthopedic equipment play a crucial role in the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and management of orthopedic disorders and injuries, enhancing patients' quality of life and functional abilities.

Edible plants are those that can be safely consumed by humans and other animals as a source of nutrition. They have various parts (such as fruits, vegetables, seeds, roots, stems, and leaves) that can be used for food after being harvested and prepared properly. Some edible plants have been cultivated and domesticated for agricultural purposes, while others are gathered from the wild. It is important to note that not all plants are safe to eat, and some may even be toxic or deadly if consumed. Proper identification and knowledge of preparation methods are crucial before consuming any plant material.

Low vision is a term used to describe significant visual impairment that cannot be corrected with standard glasses, contact lenses, medication or surgery. It is typically defined as visual acuity of less than 20/70 in the better-seeing eye after best correction, or a visual field of less than 20 degrees in the better-seeing eye.

People with low vision may have difficulty performing everyday tasks such as reading, recognizing faces, watching television, driving, or simply navigating their environment. They may also experience symptoms such as sensitivity to light, glare, or contrast, and may benefit from the use of visual aids, assistive devices, and rehabilitation services to help them maximize their remaining vision and maintain their independence.

Low vision can result from a variety of causes, including eye diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, or cataracts, as well as congenital or inherited conditions, brain injuries, or aging. It is important for individuals with low vision to receive regular eye examinations and consult with a low vision specialist to determine the best course of treatment and management.

Substrate cycling, also known as futile cycling, refers to a metabolic process in which there is a repeated conversion of a substrate to a product and then back to the original substrate, often consuming energy in the form of ATP without any net physiological benefit. This process can occur under certain pathophysiological conditions or as a result of genetic mutations affecting enzyme regulation. The most well-known example is the Cori cycle, where lactate produced by muscles is converted back to glucose in the liver, only to be released again and used by the muscles.

"Walker" is not a medical term per se, but it is often used in the medical field to refer to a mobility aid that helps individuals who have difficulty walking independently. Walkers are typically made of lightweight metal and have four legs that provide stability and support. Some walkers come with wheels or glides on the front legs to make it easier for users to move around. They may also include brakes, seats, and baskets for added functionality.

Walkers can be beneficial for people who have mobility limitations due to various medical conditions such as arthritis, stroke, fractures, neurological disorders, or aging-related issues. Using a walker can help reduce the risk of falls, improve balance, increase independence, and enhance overall quality of life.

It is essential to consult with a healthcare professional before using a walker to ensure proper fit, adjustment, and usage techniques for maximum safety and effectiveness.

A prescription is a written or electronic order for a medication or device issued by a healthcare provider (such as a doctor, nurse practitioner, or dentist) to a patient. It provides detailed instructions about the medication, including its dosage, frequency, route of administration, and duration of treatment. Prescriptions may also include additional information such as warnings about potential side effects or interactions with other medications.

Prescriptions are typically required for medications that have the potential to cause harm if used improperly, such as controlled substances or those that require careful monitoring. They serve as a legal document that authorizes a pharmacist to dispense the prescribed medication to the patient and may also be used for insurance billing purposes.

Prescriptions are an important tool in the management of medical conditions and can help ensure that patients receive appropriate and safe treatment with medications.

Sensory aids are devices or equipment that are used to improve or compensate for impaired sensory functions such as hearing, vision, or touch. They are designed to help individuals with disabilities or impairments to better interact with their environment and perform daily activities. Here are some examples:

1. Hearing aids - electronic devices worn in or behind the ear that amplify sounds for people with hearing loss.
2. Cochlear implants - surgically implanted devices that provide sound sensations to individuals with severe to profound hearing loss.
3. Visual aids - devices used to improve vision, such as eyeglasses, contact lenses, magnifiers, or telescopic lenses.
4. Low vision devices - specialized equipment for people with significant visual impairment, including large print books, talking watches, and screen readers.
5. Tactile aids - devices that provide tactile feedback to individuals with visual or hearing impairments, such as Braille displays or vibrating pagers.

Overall, sensory aids play an essential role in enhancing the quality of life for people with sensory impairments by improving their ability to communicate, access information, and navigate their environment.
