An operation that uses stimulated latissimus dorsi muscle (SKELETAL MUSCLE VENTRICLE) to assist cardiac function. The latissimus dorsi muscle is mobilized from the chest wall and moved into the thorax through the bed of the resected 2nd or 3rd rib. The muscle is then wrapped around the left and right ventricles and stimulated to contract during cardiac systole by means of an implanted burst-stimulator. (Stedman, 26th ed)
Sick Sinus Syndrome
A condition caused by dysfunctions related to the SINOATRIAL NODE including impulse generation (CARDIAC SINUS ARREST) and impulse conduction (SINOATRIAL EXIT BLOCK). It is characterized by persistent BRADYCARDIA, chronic ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and failure to resume sinus rhythm following CARDIOVERSION. This syndrome can be congenital or acquired, particularly after surgical correction for heart defects.
Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Angioplasty, Balloon, Coronary
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).

Forced Expiratory Volume
Measure of the maximum amount of air that can be expelled in a given number of seconds during a FORCED VITAL CAPACITY determination . It is usually given as FEV followed by a subscript indicating the number of seconds over which the measurement is made, although it is sometimes given as a percentage of forced vital capacity.
Devices intended to replace non-functioning organs. They may be temporary or permanent. Since they are intended always to function as the natural organs they are replacing, they should be differentiated from PROSTHESES AND IMPLANTS and specific types of prostheses which, though also replacements for body parts, are frequently cosmetic (EYE, ARTIFICIAL) as well as functional (ARTIFICIAL LIMBS).

Urinary Sphincter, Artificial
An artifical implanted device, usually in the form of an inflatable silicone cuff, inserted in or around the bladder neck in the surgical treatment of urinary incontinence caused by sphincter weakness. Often it is placed around the bulbous urethra in adult males. The artificial urinary sphincter is considered an alternative to urinary diversion.
A stack of flattened vesicles that functions in posttranslational processing and sorting of proteins, receiving them from the rough ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM and directing them to secretory vesicles, LYSOSOMES, or the CELL MEMBRANE. The movement of proteins takes place by transfer vesicles that bud off from the rough endoplasmic reticulum or Golgi apparatus and fuse with the Golgi, lysosomes or cell membrane.

Neoplastic Stem Cells
Stem Cell Transplantation
The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.

Dynamic cardiomyoplasty in patients with end-stage heart failure: anaesthetic considerations. (1/34)Dynamic cardiomyoplasty is used increasingly for patients with chronic heart failure, with approximately 500 cases having been performed. The latissimus dorsi muscle is prepared maintaining its vascular supply and the muscle flap is wrapped around the heart and connected to a cardiomyostimulator. The muscle is later stimulated synchronously with ventricular systole to augment the heart. Our experience of 22 patients with chronic heart failure (NYHA III-IV) undergoing dynamic cardiomyoplasty is described from the anaesthetist's point of view. Two patients are reported as case reports. The challenge is to manage patients with severely impaired left ventricular function, who do not obtain immediate benefit from the operation. Our experience supports the importance of early use of inotropic agents. (+info)
Cellular cardiomyoplasty improves survival after myocardial injury. (2/34)BACKGROUND: Cellular cardiomyoplasty is discussed as an alternative therapeutic approach to heart failure. To date, however, the functional characteristics of the transplanted cells, their contribution to heart function, and most importantly, the potential therapeutic benefit of this treatment remain unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS: Murine ventricular cardiomyocytes (E12.5-E15.5) labeled with enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) were transplanted into the cryoinjured left ventricular walls of 2-month-old male mice. Ultrastructural analysis of the cryoinfarction showed a complete loss of cardiomyocytes within 2 days and fibrotic healing within 7 days after injury. Two weeks after operation, EGFP-positive cardiomyocytes were engrafted throughout the wall of the lesioned myocardium. Morphological studies showed differentiation and formation of intercellular contacts. Furthermore, electrophysiological experiments on isolated EGFP-positive cardiomyocytes showed time-dependent differentiation with postnatal ventricular action potentials and intact beta-adrenergic modulation. These findings were corroborated by Western blotting, in which accelerated differentiation of the transplanted cells was detected on the basis of a switch in troponin I isoforms. When contractility was tested in muscle strips and heart function was assessed by use of echocardiography, a significant improvement of force generation and heart function was seen. These findings were supported by a clear improvement of survival of mice in the cardiomyoplasty group when a large group of animals was analyzed (n=153). CONCLUSIONS: Transplanted embryonic cardiomyocytes engraft and display accelerated differentiation and intact cellular excitability. The present study demonstrates, as a proof of principle, that cellular cardiomyoplasty improves heart function and increases survival on myocardial injury. (+info)
Myocardial regeneration therapy for heart failure: hepatocyte growth factor enhances the effect of cellular cardiomyoplasty. (3/34)BACKGROUND: We hypothesized that transfection of the gene for human hepatocyte growth factor (hHGF) combined with cellular cardiomyoplasty might regenerate the impaired myocardium. METHODS AND RESULTS: We used a ligation model of proximal left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) of Lewis rats. Two weeks after LAD ligation, 3 different treatments were conducted: (1) neonatal rat cardiomyocytes group (10(6) cells, T group, n=11), (2) HVJ-liposomes bearing the hHGF gene group (H group, n=10), and (3) combined (T-H group, n=10). The injection site was the scar area of myocardial infarction. For control, culture medium was injected (C group, n=13). Echocardiography demonstrated that cardiac performance was significantly ameliorated in the T-H group 4 and 8 weeks after injection. Contrast echocardiography also showed a marked increase in myocardial perfusion in the T-H group but not in the other groups. In the T-H group, neovascularization and a marked reduction of fibrosis were observed histologically. In an immunohistochemical study, strong staining for beta(1)-integrin, alpha-, and beta-dystroglycan were found principally in the basement membrane of myocytes in the T-H group 8 weeks after transplantation, although there was weak immunoreactivity in the T group. CONCLUSIONS: hHGF gene transfection enhanced the cellular cardiomyoplasty possibly by stimulating angiogenesis, restoring the impaired ECM, and promoting the integration of the dissociated grafted myocytes. The combined effects might have lead to the improved cardiac performance. Thus, combined therapy may be a promising strategy for the treatment of heart failure caused by myocardial infarction.

Mechanical properties of the latissimus dorsi muscle after cyclic training. (4/34)Cardiomyoplasty is a procedure developed to improve heart performance in patients suffering from congestive heart failure. The latissimus dorsi (LD) muscle is surgically wrapped around the failing ventricles and stimulated to contract in synchrony with the heart. The LD muscle is easily fatigued and as a result is unsuitable for cardiomyoplasty. For useful operation as a cardiac-assist device, the fatigue resistance of the LD muscle must be improved while retaining a high power output. The LD muscle of rabbits was subjected to a training regime in which cyclic work was performed. Training transformed the fiber-type composition from approximately equal proportions of fast oxidative glycolytic (FOG) and fast glycolytic (FG) fibers to one composed of almost entirely of FOG with no FG, which increased fatigue resistance while retaining rapid contraction kinetics. Muscle mass and cross-sectional area increased but power output decreased, relative to control muscles. This training regime represents a significant improvement in terms of preserving muscle mass and power compared with other training regimes, while enhancing fatigue resistance, although some fiber damage occurred. The power output of the trained LD muscle was calculated to be sufficient to deliver a significant level of assistance to a failing heart during cardiomyoplasty. (+info)
Cellular cardiomyoplasty of cardiac fibroblasts by adenoviral delivery of MyoD ex vivo: an unlimited source of cells for myocardial repair. (5/34)BACKGROUND: The muscle-specific MyoD family of transcription factors function as master genes that are able to prompt myogenesis in a variety of cells. The purpose of our study was to determine whether MyoD could induce primary cardiac fibroblasts, isolated from infarcted myocardium or pericardium, to undergo myogenic conversion in a clinically relevant approach. METHODS AND RESULTS: Primary rat fibroblasts from 7-day-old infarcted myocardium or normal pericardium were transfected by an E1/E3-deleted adenoviral vector carrying both a human MyoD cDNA driven by a CMV promoter and a green fluorescent protein (GFP) reporter gene driven by a second CMV promoter. Expression of MyoD caused myogenic differentiation of cultured fibroblasts, as defined by elongation and fusion into multinucleated myotubes, typical cross striation as identified by electron microscopy, and positive immunostaining for sarcomeric actin, fast myosin heavy chain (MHC), and actinin. The myogenic cells (1.5x10(6)) were transplanted into the infarcted myocardium 7 days after coronary artery occlusion. By 1 month after transplantation, the converted fibroblasts gave rise to a cluster of myogenic cells that in a few hearts occupied a large part of the scar with positive immunostaining for the myogenic proteins fast-MHC and sarcomeric actin. A few cells expressed the gap junction protein connexin 43 in a disorganized manner. There was no positive staining in the control hearts treated with injections of untreated fibroblasts or culture medium. CONCLUSIONS: Our work shows that it is possible to exploit the unique capacity of MyoD to activate myogenesis in fibroblasts ex vivo and to create a vast source of autologous myogenic cells for transplantation.

Experience in heart transplantation after dynamic cardiomyoplasty. (6/34)We report a case undergoing heart transplantation due to gradual progression of heart failure four years and one month after dynamic cardiomyoplasty. This case reports a 61-year-old man who received drug therapy after being diagnosed as having idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, but his heart failure progressed to New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III-IV, and heart transplantation was thought to be indicated. However, dynamic cardiomyoplasty was performed because this patient rejected heart transplantation. An implantable cardioverter/defibrillator (ICD) was implanted for postoperative ventricular arrhythmia. After that, his symptoms rapidly improved, but his heart failure gradually worsened two years after surgery and heart transplantation was performed four years and one month after dynamic cardiomyoplasty. Since transplantation he has had an uneventful postoperative course without rejection or complications. (+info)
Tissue engineering therapy for cardiovascular disease. (7/34)The present treatments for the loss or failure of cardiovascular function include organ transplantation, surgical reconstruction, mechanical or synthetic devices, or the administration of metabolic products. Although routinely used, these treatments are not without constraints and complications. The emerging and interdisciplinary field of tissue engineering has evolved to provide solutions to tissue creation and repair. Tissue engineering applies the principles of engineering, material science, and biology toward the development of biological substitutes that restore, maintain, or improve tissue function. Progress has been made in engineering the various components of the cardiovascular system, including blood vessels, heart valves, and cardiac muscle. Many pivotal studies have been performed in recent years that may support the move toward the widespread application of tissue-engineered therapy for cardiovascular diseases. The studies discussed include endothelial cell seeding of vascular grafts, tissue-engineered vascular conduits, generation of heart valve leaflets, cardiomyoplasty, genetic manipulation, and in vitro conditions for optimizing tissue-engineered cardiovascular constructs.

Percutaneous transvenous cellular cardiomyoplasty. A novel nonsurgical approach for myocardial cell transplantation. (8/34)OBJECTIVES: The study evaluated a nonsurgical means of intramyocardial cell introduction using the coronary venous system for direct myocardial access and cell delivery. BACKGROUND: Direct myocardial cell repopulation has been proposed as a potential method to treat heart failure. METHODS: We harvested bone marrow from Yorkshire swine (n = 6; 50 to 60 kg), selected culture-flask adherent cells, labeled them with the gene for green fluorescence protein, expanded them in culture, and resuspended them in a collagen hydrogel. Working through the coronary sinus, a specialized catheter system was easily delivered to the anterior interventricular coronary vein. The composite catheter system (TransAccess) incorporates a phased-array ultrasound tip for guidance and a sheathed, extendable nitinol needle for transvascular myocardial access. A microinfusion (IntraLume) catheter was advanced through the needle, deep into remote myocardium, and the autologous cell-hydrogel suspension was injected into normal heart. Animals were sacrificed at days 0 (n = 2), 14 (n = 1, + 1 control/collagen biogel only), and 28 (n = 2), and the hearts were excised and examined. RESULTS: We gained widespread intramyocardial access to the anterior, lateral, septal, apical, and inferior walls from the anterior interventicular coronary vein. No death, cardiac tamponade, ventricular arrhythmia, or other procedural complications occurred. Gross inspection demonstrated no evidence of myocardial perforation, and biogel/black tissue dye was well localized to sites corresponding to fluoroscopic landmarks for delivery. Histologic analysis demonstrated needle and microcatheter tracts and accurate cell-biogel delivery. CONCLUSIONS: Percutaneous intramyocardial access is safe and feasible by a transvenous approach through the coronary venous system. The swine offers an opportunity to refine approaches used for cellular cardiomyoplasty. (+info)

Cellular cardiomyoplasty: a new hope in heart failure? | Heart
Intramyocardial injections of cultured fetal cardiomyocytes after infarction in female rats in an ischaemia-reperfusion model increased ejection fraction at one month; male cells transplanted into the female hosts were identified at necropsy by detection of the Y chromosome using an in situ hybridisation technique.7 In a mouse model of doxorubicin induced global cardiomyopathy,8 local transplantation of fetal cardiomyocytes can also improve global function, suggesting the intervention of paracrine factors. Comparing intramyocardial injections of cultured fetal cardiomyocytes and allogenic fetal skeletal myoblasts after infarction in rats,9 the functional equivalence of these two types of cells was demonstrated with decreased cavity dilatation and increased ejection fraction of similar magnitude; this anti-remodelling effect was more pronounced for the lowest ejection fractions (, 40%) with an approximately 30% relative increase in ejection fraction without cavity dilatation. Similar results ...

Latissimus dorsi muscle - Wikipedia
The number of dorsal vertebrae to which it is attached varies from four to eight; the number of costal attachments varies; muscle fibers may or may not reach the crest of the ilium. A muscular slip, the axillary arch, varying from 7 to 10 cm in length, and from 5 to 15 mm in breadth, occasionally springs from the upper edge of the latissimus dorsi about the middle of the posterior fold of the axilla, and crosses the axilla in front of the axillary vessels and nerves, to join the under surface of the tendon of the pectoralis major, the coracobrachialis, or the fascia over the biceps brachii. This axillary arch crosses the axillary artery, just above the spot usually selected for the application of a ligature, and may mislead a surgeon. It is present in about 7% of the population and may be easily recognized by the transverse direction of its fibers. Guy et al. extensively described this muscular variant using MRI data and positively correlated its presence with symptoms of neurological ...
ECG of the Week - 9th September 2013 - Interpretation - FOAMed Nederland
The patient had a Cardiomyoplasty procedure for severe heart failure. Skeletal muscle is wrapped around the heart and connected to a high frequency pacemaker which is also connected to the heart in order to trigger the pacemaker. Skeletal muscle is used to increase ejection fraction but is not the same as cardiac muscle. It is hard to make skeletal muscle have a full contraction just with one pacing spike as we do for pacing the heart. To make skeletal muscle contract you need to give it sustained high frequency contraction which in this patient was programmed for every second beat. If you made it every beat, the skeletal muscle would fatigue and be ineffective. ...

In 10 dogs, a latissimus dorsi muscle (myograft) was neuroelectrically stimulated at 120 cycles/min for as long as 80 days. The higher thresholds and multiple lead penetrations required of direct muscle stimulation for muscle conditioning were avoided. Vascular delay and protective wrapping of the myograft in four dogs resulted in rapid seroma and fibrous sheath formation, which precluded further study. Of the six other myografts that were stimulated, two were used as functional right ventricular myoventriculoplasties and four were employed as neoventricle myografts with inflow and outflow valved conduits that were used to provide total pulmonary blood flow. Myoventriculoplasty produced functional enlargement of the right ventricle with synchronously contractile muscle. Neoventricles provided hemodynamically stable total pulmonary blood flow for as long as 20 hours, until internal chamber thrombus formed. Transpulmonary blood pressure generation by the neoventricle was found to be programmable ...

ExRx.net : Latissimus Dorsi
The latissimus dorsi is a stronger shoulder adductor when the shoulder is somewhat externally rotated. It is a stronger shoulder extensor when the shoulder is neither internally or externally rotated. The latissimus dorsi does not extend the shoulder beyond anatomical position (shoulder hyperextension). In strict transverse extension, the latissimus dorsi is weak. Incidentally, the posterior deltoid is strongly involved in both shoulder hyperextension and transverse extension.. The biarticulate latissimus dorsi enters passive insufficiency through the completion of shoulder flexion and abduction when the scapula is more rotated upward, elevated and abducted. The biarticulate latissimus dorsi enters active insufficiency through the completion of shoulder adduction when the scapula is more rotated downward and depressed or through the completion of shoulder extension when the shoulder girdle is more protracted and depressed.. ...

Pelagornis - Wikipedia
Pelagornis is a widespread genus of the prehistoric pseudotooth birds. These were probably rather close relatives of either pelicans and storks, or of waterfowl, and are here placed in the order Odontopterygiformes to account for this uncertainty. The fossil specimens show that P. miocaenus was one of the large pseudotooth birds, hardly less in size than Osteodontornis or the older Dasornis. Its head must have been about 40 cm (16 in) long in life, and its wingspan was probably more than 5 m (16 ft), perhaps closer to 6 metres (20 ft). Unlike in its contemporary Osteodontornis but like in the older Pseudodontornis, between each two of Pelagorniss large teeth was a single smaller one. Pelagornis differed from Dasornis and its smaller contemporary Odontopteryx in having no pneumatic foramen in the fossa pneumotricipitalis of the humerus, a single long latissimus dorsi muscle attachment site on the humerus instead of two distinct segments, and no prominent ligamentum collaterale ventrale ...

Rehabilitation of Canine Forelimb Injuries - WSAVA2013 - VIN
Maintenance of cardiovascular fitness. Canine Forelimb Lameness & Biomechanics. The canine forelimb is a crucial weightbearing structure, taking approximately 60% of the dogs weight. The forelimb is used as a strut (Carrier, Deban, Fischbein 2008) but is also actively involved in propulsion in the dog (Williams, Wilson, Daynes, Peckham, Payne 2008). The forelimb is an intricate structure with complex muscular and soft tissue structures both within the thoracic limb and extrinsic attachments to the thorax. When diagnosing and rehabilitating canine forelimb lameness often the extrinsic structures are overlooked, and to achieve successful functional rehabilitation a holistic approach is important. Williams et al. (2008) has demonstrated that the extrinsic muscles pectoralis profundus and latissimus dorsi muscles in the greyhound contributed significantly to thoracic limb muscle mass and they are adapted to produce large amounts of work. Biceps brachii and triceps brachii not only generate high ...
Building Your Lats Through Proper Biomechanics
As noted above, the lattisimus dorsi muscle has a strong action in adduction of the humerus. Whenever we have our hands above our head, as with seated pulldowns or while doing pull-ups, due to the upward rotation of the scapula that accompanies glenohumeral abduction, the latissimus dorsi effectively downwardly rotates the scapula by pulling the entire shoulder girdle downward in active glenohumeral adduction. Since it is one of the most important extensor muscles of the humerus, it contracts powerfully in chinning and supinated pull-downs. Therefore, any exercise in which the arms are pulled down bring the latissimus dorsi into a full contraction. Basic rowing and pullover exercises with dumbbells or barbells are also good for latissimus dorsi development ...
Chin-up - Wikipedia
The chin-up (also known as a chin or chinup) is a strength training exercise. People frequently do this exercise with the intention of strengthening muscles such as the latissimus dorsi and biceps, which extend the shoulder and flex the elbow, respectively. It is a form of pull-up in which the range of motion is established in relation to a persons chin. In the 1970s and 1980s, the term chin-up not only included an overhand/pronated (palms away) grip, but some authors used it as the default meaning of the term, with an underhand/supinated (palms toward) grip called a reverse grip. Even in the 2010s chin-up still includes palms-away lifting. The term chin-up is still regularly used refer to pulling using an overhand-grip. Both pull-ups and chin-ups are among the best exercises for back and overall upper body conditioning. However, they target the muscles a bit differently. Both exercises will work the latissimus dorsi and biceps, but standard chin-ups-with an underhand ...

Breast pseudotumoral radionecrosis as a late radiation-induced injury: a case report | Journal of Medical Case Reports | Full...
New therapies and treatment protocols have led to improved survival rates in many cancers. The improved rates are such that patients are now living long enough to experience some negative long-term side effects of the initial therapy. We report the case of a 65-year-old Caucasian woman who presented with a rare case of pseudotumoral radionecrosis, a late radiation-induced injury, after combined surgical and cobalt radiation therapy for the treatment of adenocarcinoma of the right breast. The patient underwent resection of this benign, yet progressively growing and painful tumor. A cosmetically satisfying result was achieved by reconstruction of the thoracic wall with a polypropylene mesh and a latissimus dorsi muscle flap. With improved overall survival, new management strategies for late side effects of therapy are becoming of crucial importance for affected patients. In the future, improving toxicity-free survival will be as important as achieving disease-free survival or local tumor control.

The aim of the study was the comparison of fatty acid composition in longissimus dorsi muscle of ram lambs fattening under overhead shelter versus those in a barn. The maintenance did not influence on main fatty acid composition of muscle tissue. The muscle tissue of lambs reared under overhead shelter compared to these kept in the barn was characterized by significantly higher C10:0, C12:0 (P | 0.01) but higher C18:2, c9, t11(P | 0.05) content, which is desirable in human diet with regard to its peculiarities.
Latissimus Dorsi Flap Breast Reconstruction in Washington, DC | Breast Reconstruction, DC
A latissimus dorsi flap brings skin, fat, and muscle from the back to recreate the breast. Most women do not have sufficient back tissue to create a breast, so this approach often requires the placement of an implant as well.
anatomyEXPERT - Muscles - developmental approach - Structure Detail
Muscles and their associated tendons come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. The different shapes and sizes coupled with the relationships they form with one another, with the skeleton, and at the joints they cross create the large variety of musculoskeletal action that is such an integral part of the bodys function. It is also from the differences in shape and size that muscles derive their names. When the early anatomists began naming muscles they used a logical, descriptive approach. Understanding the logic behind the name can help you learn about the muscle. The characteristic features of a muscle name include adjectives and genitives that modify the noun muscle. Keep in mind that the full name of any muscle of the body begins with musculus, a masculine noun. The English language has dropped this from common usage and allows the adjective and the genitive that describe the muscle to stand alone as the English noun. For example, musculus latissimus dorsi becomes the latissimus dorsi ...

Replace your missing pectoral muscle.. Polands Syndrome is a congenital condition predominant in men which is characterized by the absence of a large portion of the pectoralis muscle. The missing portion is most often part of the sternal musculature but may also include the surrounding muscles. In these cases it is not unusual for the nipples to be disproportionately small or even entirely absent.. If you are a man suffering from Polands Syndrome, we can restore the natural appearance of your chest. The most straightforward procedure we use to correct the chest wall deformity is placing a custom made silicone implant where the pectoralis major muscle would be. Depending on your particular condition, your physical features and health status, we can customize the many options available to ensure your results are optimized to your needs. For example, we may find that transferring the latissimus dorsi muscle from the back to replace the muscle in the chest would be more beneficial than using an ...

Postpartum belly wrap | BabyCenter
I purchased a wrap to use after my son because I had read such good things about belly binding. The one I got however was so stiff I couldnt bend to lift him or sit with it on (Im 54 so if you happen to know a petite brand one that would be great) so I gave up wearing it. I would love to give it another try after this baby, but would like some recommendations if anyone had them, especially on wraps that helped stabilize without immobilizing them. Links would be really helpful too! Thanks!
Pectoral muscles - Wikipedia
Pectoralis major is a thick, fan-shaped muscle, which makes up the bulk of the chest muscle. It lies under the breast. It serves to flex, extend, and rotate the humerus, the long bone of the upper arm. Pectoralis minor is a thin, triangular muscle located beneath the pectoralis major. It attaches to the ribs, and serves to stabilize the scapula, the large bone of the shoulder. The pectoral fascia is a thin layer of tissue over the pectoralis major, extending toward the latissimus dorsi muscle on the back. Along with the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor, the subclavius muscle forms the axilla or armpit. The subclavius moves the shoulder downward and forward. Serratus anterior is another muscle on the front of the chest. It moves the scapula forward around the torso, as when throwing a punch. Between the ribs are various groups of intercostal muscles, which help with breathing. ...

1 of 3) The supinator muscle is seen in both the flexor compartment and extensor compartment of the forearm. The fibers of the supinator muscle wrap laterally around the upper one-third of the radius. To view the supinator muscle, supinate the forearm and retract the extensor muscles that form the lateral border of the cubital fossa. Deep in the cubital fossa, identify the supinator muscle and radial nerve. In the proximal portion of the cubital fossa, the radial nerve divides into its superficial and deep branches [the deep branch lies superficial to the tip of the probe and the superficial branch lies beneath the curve of the probe]. Trace the superficial branch of the radial nerve distally and identify its branches which supply the skin of the dorsum of the hand over the thumb, index and middle fingers..

My left Lat is bigger than my right, what can I do? - IDEA Health & Fitness Association
Hello Tom Thumb! 8)). Everyone one of us have stronger or more dominate side of our body and because we are not perfectly symmetrical, at times we see differences in size when we measure our bodies and compare left and right sides of our body.. Here are some things you can try to increase hypertrophy on the side of the body that is smaller.. 1. Use cable machines or dumbbells as opposed to traditional fixed machines. In this way you can really not only increase the strength of the side that is smaller and likely weaker, but you will be able to concentrate on increasing hypertrophy on that muscle group.. 2. Ask your personal trainer to perform a one rep max assessment for you for your lats. But perform it unilaterally. In this way your trainer will be in a position to determine the appropriate amount of weight you should be lifting at in order to increase the muscle size of the latissimus dorsi.. Tom, I hope this is helpful to you.. Best!. ...
