Effect of intravenous dextran 70 and pneumatic leg compression on incidence of postoperative pulmonary embolism. (1/4477)

The incidence of pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis was measured in 50 matched pairs of patients undergoing common surgical procedures with preoperative and postoperative ventilation-perfusion lung scans and the fibrinogen uptake test. One patient in each pair was treated with intravenous dextran 70 and pneumatic leggings. The incidence of pulmonary embolism among the treated patients was significantly reduced from 24% to 8%, but the incidence of deep vein thrombosis was not significantly reduced (34% to 24%).  (+info)

Spinal cord-evoked potentials and muscle responses evoked by transcranial magnetic stimulation in 10 awake human subjects. (2/4477)

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TCMS) causes leg muscle contractions, but the neural structures in the brain that are activated by TCMS and their relationship to these leg muscle responses are not clearly understood. To elucidate this, we concomitantly recorded leg muscle responses and thoracic spinal cord-evoked potentials (SCEPs) after TCMS for the first time in 10 awake, neurologically intact human subjects. In this report we provide evidence of direct and indirect activation of corticospinal neurons after TCMS. In three subjects, SCEP threshold (T) stimulus intensities recruited both the D wave (direct activation of corticospinal neurons) and the first I wave (I1, indirect activation of corticospinal neurons). In one subject, the D, I1, and I2 waves were recruited simultaneously, and in another subject, the I1 and I2 waves were recruited simultaneously. In the remaining five subjects, only the I1 wave was recruited first. More waves were recruited as the stimulus intensity increased. The presence of D and I waves in all subjects at low stimulus intensities verified that TCMS directly and indirectly activated corticospinal neurons supplying the lower extremities. Leg muscle responses were usually contingent on the SCEP containing at least four waves (D, I1, I2, and I3).  (+info)

L-[1-11C]-tyrosine PET to evaluate response to hyperthermic isolated limb perfusion for locally advanced soft-tissue sarcoma and skin cancer. (3/4477)

PET with L-[1-11C]-tyrosine (TYR) was investigated in patients undergoing hyperthermic isolated limb perfusion (HILP) with recombinant tumor necrosis factor alpha (rTNF-alpha) and melphalan for locally advanced soft-tissue sarcoma and skin cancer of the lower limb. METHODS: Seventeen patients (5 women, 12 men; age range 24-75 y; mean age 52 y) were studied. TYR PET studies were performed before HILP and 2 and 8 wk afterwards. The protein synthesis rates (PSRs) in nanomoles per milliliter per minute were calculated. After final PET studies, tumors were resected and pathologically examined. Patients with pathologically complete responses (pCR) showed no viable tumors after treatment. Those with pathologically partial responses (pPR) showed various amounts of viable tumors in the resected tumor specimens. RESULTS: Six patients (35%) showed a pCR and 11 patients (65%) showed a pPR. All tumors were depicted as hot spots on PET studies before HILP. The PSR in the pCR group at 2 and 8 wk after perfusion had decreased significantly (P < 0.05) in comparison to the PSR before HILP. A significant difference was found in PSR between the pCR and pPR groups at 2 and at 8 wk (P < 0.05). Median PSR in nonviable tumor tissue was 0.62 and ranged from 0.22 to 0.91. With a threshold PSR of 0.91, sensitivity and specificity of TYR PET were 82% and 100%, respectively. The predictive value of a PSR > 0.91 for having viable tumor after HILP was 100%, whereas the predictive value of a PSR < or = 0.91 for having nonviable tumor tissue after HILP was 75%. The 2 patients in the pPR groups with a PSR < 0.91 showed microscopic islets of tumor cells surrounded by extensive necrosis on pathological examination. CONCLUSION: Based on the calculated PSR after HILP, TYR PET gave a good indication of the pathological outcome. Inflammatory tissue after treatment did not interfere with viable tumor on the images, suggesting that it may be worthwhile to pursue TYR PET in other therapy evaluation settings.  (+info)

Chronic compartment syndrome affecting the lower limb: MIBI perfusion imaging as an alternative to pressure monitoring: two case reports. (4/4477)

Intracompartmental pressure monitoring remains the primary method of diagnosing chronic compartment syndrome. MIBI perfusion imaging is widely available and offers a radionuclear imaging technique for diagnosing this condition. Although the results are not identical with those from pressure monitoring, MIBI may offer a useful screening test for this condition.  (+info)

Venous duplex scanning of the leg: range, variability and reproducibility. (5/4477)

Despite the many studies on venous haemodynamics using duplex, only a few evaluated the normal values, variability and reproducibility. Therefore, the range and variability of venous diameter, compressibility, flow and reflux were measured. To obtain normal values, 42 healthy individuals (42 limbs, 714 vein segments) with no history of venous disease were scanned by duplex. To determine the reproducibility the intra-observer variability was measured in 11 healthy individuals (187 vein segments) and the inter-observer variability in 15 healthy individuals (255 vein segments) and 13 patients (169 vein segments) previously diagnosed with deep venous thrombosis. Of the 714 normal vein segments, 708 (99%) were traceable, including the crural veins. Of the traceable vein segments, 675 (95%) were compressible and in 696 (98%) flow was present. Of the 42 common femoral vein segments, in 25 (60%) the reflux duration exceeded 1.0 s, but in the other proximal vein segments the reflux duration was less than 1.0 s (95% confidence interval 3.0-10.0). With the exception of the distal long saphenous vein, in the distal vein segments the reflux duration was less than 0.5 s (95% confidence interval 3.5-8.2). The coefficient of variation of the diameter measurements ranged from 14 to 50% and that of the reflux measurements from 28 to 60%. The kappa-coefficient of the inter-observer variability in the classification of compressibility measurements in the patients was 0. 77 and that of the reflux measurements was 0.86. This study shows that almost all veins were compressible in healthy individuals, except the distal femoral veins. In healthy individuals the duration of reflux of the proximal veins was less than 1.0 s and in the distal veins it was less than 0.5 s. The inter-observer variability of the reflux and compressibility measurements in the patients was good.  (+info)

Phase reversal of biomechanical functions and muscle activity in backward pedaling. (6/4477)

Computer simulations of pedaling have shown that a wide range of pedaling tasks can be performed if each limb has the capability of executing six biomechanical functions, which are arranged into three pairs of alternating antagonistic functions. An Ext/Flex pair accelerates the limb into extension or flexion, a Plant/Dorsi pair accelerates the foot into plantarflexion or dorsiflexion, and an Ant/Post pair accelerates the foot anteriorly or posteriorly relative to the pelvis. Because each biomechanical function (i.e., Ext, Flex, Plant, Dorsi, Ant, or Post) contributes to crank propulsion during a specific region in the cycle, phasing of a muscle is hypothesized to be a consequence of its ability to contribute to one or more of the biomechanical functions. Analysis of electromyogram (EMG) patterns has shown that this biomechanical framework assists in the interpretation of muscle activity in healthy and hemiparetic subjects during forward pedaling. Simulations show that backward pedaling can be produced with a phase shift of 180 degrees in the Ant/Post pair. No phase shifts in the Ext/Flex and Plant/Dorsi pairs are then necessary. To further test whether this simple yet biomechanically viable strategy may be used by the nervous system, EMGs from 7 muscles in 16 subjects were measured during backward as well as forward pedaling. As predicted, phasing in vastus medialis (VM), tibialis anterior (TA), medial gastrocnemius (MG), and soleus (SL) were unaffected by pedaling direction, with VM and SL contributing to Ext, MG to Plant, and TA to Dorsi. In contrast, phasing in biceps femoris (BF) and semimembranosus (SM) were affected by pedaling direction, as predicted, compatible with their contribution to the directionally sensitive Post function. Phasing of rectus femoris (RF) was also affected by pedaling direction; however, its ability to contribute to the directionally sensitive Ant function may only be expressed in forward pedaling. RF also contributed significantly to the directionally insensitive Ext function in both forward and backward pedaling. Other muscles also appear to have contributed to more than one function, which was especially evident in backward pedaling (i.e. , BF, SM, MG, and TA to Flex). We conclude that the phasing of only the Ant and Post biomechanical functions are directionally sensitive. Further, we suggest that task-dependent modulation of the expression of the functions in the motor output provides this biomechanics-based neural control scheme with the capability to execute a variety of lower limb tasks, including walking.  (+info)

Age-related outcome for peripheral thrombolysis. (7/4477)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the age-related outcome of peripheral thrombolysis and determine for which patient group this treatment is worthwhile. DESIGN AND METHODS: A combined retrospective and prospective analysis of consecutive patients undergoing thrombolysis for acute lower-limb ischaemia was made with respect to age-related outcome and other risk factors. RESULTS: One hundred and two patients underwent thrombolysis for acute limb ischaemia. In the under 60 age group there was a 40% amputation rate. Seventy-three per cent of this group smoked. In the over 80 age group, the amputation rate was 15% and only 8% were smokers. CONCLUSION: Advancing age is not an adverse risk factor for thrombolysis which appears to be safe and effective in this patient group. There is a high incidence of smoking in the younger age group (< 60 years), in whom failed thrombolysis frequently leads to amputation.  (+info)

Heart rate during exercise with leg vascular occlusion in spinal cord-injured humans. (8/4477)

Feed-forward and feedback mechanisms are both important for control of the heart rate response to muscular exercise, but their origin and relative importance remain inadequately understood. To evaluate whether humoral mechanisms are of importance, the heart rate response to electrically induced cycling was studied in participants with spinal cord injury (SCI) and compared with that elicited during volitional cycling in able-bodied persons (C). During voluntary exercise at an oxygen uptake of approximately 1 l/min, heart rate increased from 66 +/- 4 to 86 +/- 4 (SE) beats/min in seven C, and during electrically induced exercise at a similar oxygen uptake in SCI it increased from 73 +/- 3 to 110 +/- 8 beats/min. In contrast, blood pressure increased only in C (from 88 +/- 3 to 99 +/- 4 mmHg), confirming that, during exercise, blood pressure control is dominated by peripheral neural feedback mechanisms. With vascular occlusion of the legs, the exercise-induced increase in heart rate was reduced or even eliminated in the electrically stimulated SCI. For C, heart rate tended to be lower than during exercise with free circulation to the legs. Release of the cuff elevated heart rate only in SCI. These data suggest that humoral feedback is of importance for the heart rate response to exercise and especially so when influence from the central nervous system and peripheral neural feedback from the working muscles are impaired or eliminated during electrically induced exercise in individuals with SCI.  (+info)

INTRODUCTION:. Lower extremity arterial disease (LEAD) is often one of the first signs of a generalized atherosclerotic disease in type 1 and type 2 diabetic subjects.. MATERIALS AND METHODS:. We studied 143 diabetic subjects at 30-70 years of age, M/F 69/74, 74 with type 1 and 69 with type 2 diabetes, without previously known or suspected lower extremity arterial disease. The relationship between early asymptomatic lower extremity arterial disease and blood levels of HbA1c, lipids and fibrinolysis markers (tPA-activity, tPA mass, PAI-1 activity, tPA-PAI-1 complex) was assessed. In parallel, a group with non-diabetic subjects (n=80) was studied.. RESULTS:. 35 (24%) diabetic subjects were classified as having sign(s) of LEAD, defined as having at least one reduced peripheral blood pressure measurement, 28% in type 1 vs 20% in type 2 diabetic subjects (p=NS). In univariate logistic regression analyses age, glycemic level (HbA1c), male gender (only in type 1 diabetic subjects), hypertension and tPA ...
Wearable motion sensors consisting of accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetic sensors are readily available nowadays. The small size and low production costs of motion sensors make them a very good tool for human motions analysis. However, data processing and accuracy of the collected data are important issues for research purposes. In this paper, we aim to review the literature related to usage of inertial sensors in human lower limb biomechanics studies. A systematic search was done in the following search engines: ISI Web of Knowledge, Medline, SportDiscus and IEEE Xplore. Thirty nine full papers and conference abstracts with related topics were included in this review. The type of sensor involved, data collection methods, study design, validation methods and its applications were reviewed.

The present study examined if a marked reduction in oxygen delivery, unlike findings with moderate intensity exercise, would slow leg oxygen uptake (VO2) kinetics during intense exercise (86±3% of incremental test peak power). Seven healthy males (26±1 years, mean±SEM) performed one-legged knee-extensor exercise (60±3 W) for 4 min in a control setting (CON) and with arterial infusion of L-NMMA and indomethacin in the working leg to reduce blood flow by inhibiting formation of nitric oxide and prostanoids (double blockade; DB). In DB leg blood flow (LBF) and oxygen delivery during the first minute of exercise were 25-50% lower ( ...
STUDY OBJECTIVE: To examine the separate associations of leg length, a biomarker of prepubertal exposures and growth, and trunk length with adult levels of liver enzymes: alanine aminotransferase (ALT), gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT), aspartate transaminase (AST) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP). METHODS: A cross-sectional analysis of baseline data from the British Womens Health and Heart Study, a random sample of British women aged 60-79 years. RESULTS: Leg length was inversely associated with age-adjusted levels of ALT, GGT and ALP. These associations remained when controlling for childhood and adulthood social class, physical activity, smoking, alcohol consumption, waist-to-hip ratio and trunk length. Trunk length was positively associated with ALT and inversely associated with ALP and the associations remained when adjusting for covariables. CONCLUSIONS: Adult liver function is affected by early life environmental exposures as reflected in leg length, and this may suggest common childhood ...
BACKGROUND: Exercise-induced hyperkalemia, which may contribute to exercise hyperpnea and exertional fatigue, is increased in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). This study examined whether differences in leg blood flow during exercise could be responsible for alterations in the level of hyperkalaemia, as well as the effect of physical training. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied 10 subjects with CHF (ejection fraction 23 +/- 3.9%; mean +/- SD) and 10 subjects with normal left ventricular function (NLVF) who had undergone previous coronary bypass graft surgery (ejection fraction 64 +/- 8.0%; mean +/- SD). Subjects performed incremental cycle exercise to exhaustion before and after physical training. The rises in femoral venous potassium concentration ([K+]), heart rate, lactate, and ventilation (VI) with exercise were all greater in the subjects with CHF than in those with NLVF (P | .05). There was no difference between the groups in leg blood flow during submaximal exercise but peak leg flow was

Detailed gait analysis reveals that people with clogged leg arteries rely more on muscles in the back of the calf when they walk to compensate for weakness in certain hip muscles, according to a study presented at the American Heart Associations Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology/Peripheral Vascular Disease Scientific Sessions 2015 in San Francisco in May.. A release from the association notes that this suggests that exercise training to strengthen hip flexor muscles may increase how far patients can walk without calf pain.. Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a narrowing of the arteries to the legs and other parts of the body, which restricts blood flow. It can cause pain, changes in skin color, sores or ulcers and difficulty walking. Total loss of circulation to the legs and feet can cause gangrene and loss of a limb..

In human anatomical terms, the leg is the part of the lower limb[2] that lies between the knee and the ankle.[3][4] This article generally follows the common usage. The leg from the knee to the ankle is called the cnemis (neemis) or crus[5]. The calf is the back portion and the shin is the front. Legs are often used metaphorically in many cultures to indicate either strength or mobility. The supporting columns of an object may be referred to as legs as well, as in chair legs. ...

Having visible veins in your legs isnt generally dangerous, but it can be extremely damaging to a persons self-esteem. Fortunately, there are a number of simple lifestyle changes you can make in order to reduce your chances of developing abnormal leg veins such as varicose veins and spider veins. Here are some tips for keeping your legs healthy and attractive.. Try to maintain a healthy weight. This doesnt mean crash dieting; it means eating a healthy and balanced diet and getting a reasonable amount of exercise each week. The less excess weight your legs have to hold up, the less likely it is that blood will begin to pool in them-which is how abnormal veins develop.. Dont stand or sit for too long. When you keep your legs in a single position for too long, it interferes with your normal blood circulation. If your job requires a lot of sitting, get up every 20-30 minutes, walk around, and stretch out your calves. Riding a bike, going for a hike, or taking a swim are also great ways to ...

Diabetes mellitus is characterized by a widespread endothelial dysfunction20 and a 2- to 3-fold increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. As previously highlighted by our group, circulating blood cells in diabetes are subjected to many biochemical alterations attributable to the high oxidative stress and the unfavorable vascular environment.21,22. The present study demonstrates that number and function of circulating EPCs are profoundly altered in type 2 diabetic patients with PAD compared with diabetic patients without PAD. Moreover, we show strong correlations between circulating EPC levels and the severity of carotid and lower extremity arterial disease.. In this work we have used 2 independent methods to study endothelial progenitors: flow cytometry of fresh blood and ex vivo culture. Flow cytometry is considered the gold standard for quantitative enumeration of EPC, being sensitive, precise and reproducible23: using this technique, we have defined EPCs by the surface expression ...

1. In a group of nine middle-aged patients undergoing varicose vein surgery, cardiac output, right atrial, pulmonary arterial and capillary pressures, and leg blood flow were measured after induction of general anaesthesia but before operation, and also during operation before and after blood substitution.. 2. Under anaesthesia, the mean preoperative blood flows in the superficial and common femoral arteries were 160 ml/min and 280 ml/min respectively. These flows are comparable with those obtained in other studies under similar conditions but lower than values obtained in conscious subjects. During the operation the leg blood flow decreased by 24%. As cardiac output remained unchanged, the fractional leg blood flow fell. After transfusion of 900 ml of blood the leg blood flow doubled.. 3. It is concluded that anaesthesia, surgical trauma and variations in blood volume greatly influence the leg blood flow and that an adequate substitution of operative blood loss is of utmost importance to ...

No significant differences between gender and age were observed for either NOE enhancements ...
Many people have varicose veins, which cause unsightly legs, leg pain and swelling. Varicose veins are caused by venous reflux disease. Healthy leg veins contain valves that open and close to assist in the return of blood back to the heart. With venous reflux disease, the valves that keep the blood flowing out of the legs and back to the heart become damaged. The valves do not close properly, allowing blood to flow in reverse and pool in the leg veins. This causes the superficial veins to swell and bulge resulting in unsightly varicose veins, leg swelling, pain and fatigue. Without treatment, venous reflux disease can also lead to skin pigment changes in the legs as well as ulcerations that are slow to heal. Elevating the legs, wearing compression stockings, rest and pain medications can offer temporary relief of some symptoms of venous reflux disease, but do not fix the underlying problem.. In recent years, a new procedure has become available to treat venous reflux disease. This procedure, ...

Studies show that 20-30% of female athletes have one leg significantly weaker than the other leg. If a female has a muscle weakness of 15% or greater from one leg to the other, she is about 3 times more likely to suffer a leg injury.. Training should be customized to strengthen the weaker leg and bring it up to par (or close) with the stronger leg. Equal or similar strength in legs will improve your dynamic balance (keeping center of gravity over a constantly changing base of support) and reduce chances of injury.. One-legged exercises like step ups, lunges and single-legged squats are great for balancing your leg strength.. Have you had a leg injury while playing sports? What was the cause?

Roth, R, Donath, L, Zahner, L, and Faude, O. Acute leg and trunk muscle fatigue differentially affect strength, sprint, agility, and balance in young adults. J Strength Cond Res XX(X): 000-000, 2019-How important leg or trunk muscles are for balance and sprint performance is still unexplored. Therefore, we separately fatigued the leg and trunk musculature and examined their contribution to strength, balance, sprint, and agility performance. Twenty-four healthy adults (12 women; age 22.9 [SD: 2.6] years; body mass 59 [10] kg; height 1.65 [0.09] m; and 12 men; age 22.7 [3.0] years; body mass 78 [9] kg; height 1.81 [0.06] m; at least 3 training sessions/week for at least 90 minutes) underwent a leg and a trunk fatigue procedure, each of 20-minute duration and a control condition at rest in a randomized order. Each condition was conducted individually on 3 separate days. Isokinetic leg and trunk strength, as well as static and dynamic balance, sprint, agility, and prone plank endurance, were ...
The Redskins have tasked Sanchez with keeping the Redskins afloat in the NFC playoff picture after McCoy suffered a fractured fibula in his right leg in the first half of their 28-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night.. McCoy ran to avoid a sack and tried to slide as the Eagles defense rushed toward him. McCoy planted his right leg into the turf and the lower part of the leg and ankle viciously whipped into safety Malcolm Jenkins knee.. The Redskins know a thing or two about serious injuries to quarterbacks McCoy got his chance because Smith suffered a broken right leg just weeks ago that has threatened his career.. We have to get a plan ready for Mark moving forward, coach Jay Gruden said. Weve got to play great football around him which we didnt do tonight.. McCoy stayed in the game and completed two short passes before limping off with the Redskins trailing 7-3 to the Super Bowl champion Eagles (6-6). He made his second straight start since Smith was knocked out with a ...

Data on interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumour necrosis factor-a (TNF-a) release during acute exercise are not conclusive, and information is lacking about the impact of physical inactivity. Some studies have shown an increase, but others report no changes in IL-6 and TNF-a release during exercise. We have now studied the temporal relationship of leg IL-6 and TNF-a release before and during isolated two-legged exercise after 14 days of one-leg immobilization (IM) while the other leg served as the control (CON) leg. Fifteen healthy male subjects (mean ± SEM age, 23 ± 1 years; body mass index, 23.6 ± 0.7 kg m; and maximal oxygen uptake, 46.8 ± 1.4 ml kg min) performed 45 min of two-legged dynamic knee-extensor exercise at 19.6 ± 0.8 W. Arterial and femoral venous blood samples from the CON and the IM leg were collected every 15 min during exercise, and leg blood flow was measured with Doppler ultrasound. The arterial plasma IL-6 concentration increased (P ,0.05) with exercise (rest, 1.3 ± 0.1 pg ...
Leg stiffness is often computed from ground reaction force (GRF) registrations of vertical hops to estimate the force-resisting capacity of the lower-extremity during ground contact, with leg stiffness values incorporated in a spring-mass model to describe human motion. Individual biomechanical characteristics, including leg stiffness, were investigated in 40 healthy males. Our aim is to report and discuss the use of 13 different computational methods for evaluating leg stiffness from a double-legged repetitive hopping task, using only GRF registrations. Four approximations for the velocity integration constant were combined with three mathematical expressions, giving 12 methods for computing stiffness using double integrations. One frequency-based method that considered ground contact times was also trialled. The 13 methods thus defined were used to compute stiffness in four extreme cases, which were the stiffest, and most compliant, consistent and variable subjects. All methods provided ...

We sought to determine the degree to which isolated swinging of a leg is metabolically costly. The mechanics of a pendulum predict that sharply increasing force and work are required to move the leg quickly. Production of muscle work and force for short durations (force/time hypothesis) might both require metabolic energy.. The observed increases in mechanical (Fig. 3) and metabolic (Fig. 4) measurements confirm that pendulum mechanics are relevant to the leg motion. Even though no net work is performed over an entire cycle, force and work are necessary within each cycle to move the leg faster than its natural frequency. The sharp increase in mechanical demands must be met by muscle, probably causing the fourfold increase in metabolic cost.. Mechanical work is probably responsible for much of the metabolic cost. Some active work is almost certainly performed by muscle fibers, but not necessarily as much as the measured work performed on the limb. Series elasticity, in tendon and other ...
Do you have difficulty sitting still on an airplane because your legs are uncomfortable? Do your restless legs prevent you from falling asleep at night? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you might have Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS).. RLS is an uncomfortable sensation in the legs that appears at rest or at bedtime. The sensation is notoriously difficult to describe, but some refer to it as a creepy-crawly feeling. RLS has many names and has been variously referred to as Jimmy legs, the heebie jeebies, and Elvis legs. It creates an irresistible urge to move the legs. When the legs are moved, this sensation is temporarily relieved. RLS is a problem because it prevents people from falling asleep and the uncomfortable sensation can cause a great deal of distress.. ...
The goal of the study is to determine the safety and possible effectiveness of various doses of autologous (ones own) stem cells, delivered with a needle into the regions of the leg with poor blood flow in patients with blocked leg arteries that results in claudication (pain when walking). Stem cells are primitive cells produced by the bone marrow that can develop into blood cells or other types of cells. In addition to determining whether this new approach is safe, the diagnostic tests may offer preliminary insights into the usefulness of this approach for treating intermittent claudication - the condition where areas in the leg are lacking enough oxygen and blood flow to keep the leg muscle working well, causing pain and cramping upon walking.. This study is a double-blind, randomized study to compare CD34-positive stem cells versus a placebo agent (salt water solution known as normal saline). The patient will have a 3:1 chance of their stem cells versus the placebo. Regardless of a patient ...

1 Terry - these exercises do make you a better hiker. In addition, an article I read last year noted that lower leg muscles are the first to degrade with age, and older runners and walkers use upper leg muscles more than lower and move less fluidly as a result, so as runners (and hikers) get older its important to exercise lower leg muscles. The article included a number of exercises mentioned here.. Any walking on uneven ground, or, over boulders (say by a beach wave break) would be helpful. Trail running as well, though if you have had an issue you might like to start with other exercises first before trail running.. +1 Dena - single leg Yoga poses are excellent - youll notice small muscles in your lower legs making many quick autocorrects, quickening response time.

The lower back is a common area of weakness-our patients typically describe achy, tight or stiff lower backs. Some develop referred pain from nerve conditions that may travel down a leg, for example Sciatica or Piriformus Syndrome.. When feet and legs are not working the way they were intended, repetitive abnormal stress can be localized within the lower back. The sacroiliac joint is the area connecting the torso with the pelvis. As the legs internally rotate, the pelvis must anteriorly tilt, compensating for this motion. This in turn leads to sacroiliac joint instability requiring muscular compensation. This muscular compensation will lead to postural and biomechanical changes, potentially resulting in pain in other areas.. Pelvic instability will also arise in the case of a structural or functional leg length difference and create a scoliosis. A structural leg length difference occurs when a true difference between the lengths of the right and left legs exists. In this case, balancing the leg ...

Lower Limb Artery Disease. PRINCETON, N.J. and PARIS - September 28, 2015 - STENTYS (FR0010949404 - STNT), a medical technology company commercializing the worlds first and only Self-Apposing® coronary stent, today announced that the Companys Drug-Eluting stent received CE Mark for treatment of below-the-knee (BTK) arteries, making STENTYS product the first self-expanding and drug-eluting stent with regulatory approval in Europe for this indication.. The CE Mark was obtained following the strong results achieved by STENTYS stent in the PES BTK-70 study in which the product prevented foot amputation in 99% of the 70 patients treated for critical limb ischemia (CLI).. The most severe cases of CLI, in which tissue of the foot or ankle does not receive a sufficient supply of oxygen and begins to die (necrosis), often require amputation. To prevent this outcome, surgeons open up the artery with balloons and frequently implant stents. Approximately 25% of diabetics globally suffer from CLI and, ...
The whole study is divided in 4 parallel protocols. The first protocol estimates the reliability of the technique through test-retest recordings. The second protocol aims to prove that exercise Tcpo2 is efficient to estimate the benefit of proximal revascularisation on proximal and distal ischemia in patients suffering stage two lower extremity arterial disease. The third protocol aims at estimating with exercise tcpo2 the eventual apparison of proximal ischemia after aorto-bi-femoral bypasses. The last protocol is a transversal study of patients with aorto-bi-femoral bypasses aiming to analyse the presence of proximal and distal symptoms and ischemia.. The hypothesis for protocol 2 is that TcpO2 at exercise is significantly improved after surgery at the aortic and primary iliac artery. The hypothesis for protocols 3 and 4 relates on the hypothesis that a significant number of patients benefiting aorto-bi-femoral bypass suffer isolated proximal pain/ischemia after surgery.. Amendement to the ...

Leg swelling , or edema, can be caused by a number of medical conditions, including problems with the heart, liver, and kidneys. Chronic Venous Disease (CVD) can also cause leg swelling. In fact, swelling is one of the signs of more advanced venous disease.. Veins drain the used blood from the body back to the heart. In order to fight gravity and keep the blood flowing from the feet up to the heart, veins are equipped with one-way valves. With CVD, some of those one-way valves become leaky. When this happens in the legs, blood will drain more slowly, which causes the legs to swell.. Figuring out the cause of a patients swelling can be difficult. Often, a patient will have more than one cause of the swelling. At McQuaid Vein Specialists, our vascular technologists will perform a detailed ultrasound study to look for diseased veins as a source of the swelling. If vein problems are found, treatment options will be discussed.. ...

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is generally associated with blocked arteries of the legs. The blockage most often is the result of a chronic buildup of hard fatty material (atherosclerosis) into the inside lining of the arterial wall of the legs. This ultimately narrows and blocks the flow of blood which carries oxygen and nutrients to the limb. The femoral and popliteal arteries are the major arterial blood supply to the lower extremities and are a common location for atherosclerotic disease to develop.. The presence of atherosclerosis in the leg arteries is a strong indicator that there is also atherosclerosis in the arteries of the heart and brain, because atherosclerosis is a widespread disease of the arteries. Atherosclerosis of the leg arteries may cause a blockage, obstructing blood flow, and potentially result in pain in the leg(s), ulcers or wounds that do not heal, and/or the need for amputation (surgical removal) of a foot or leg. Therefore, PAD has two major complications ...

When the blood flow is hampered, it is essentially slowed down and may not reach the leg at a rate that is sufficient to maintain the oxygen and nutrient supply to the tissues of the lower leg or feet. This is seen in poor leg circulation problems affecting the arteries - arterial insufficiency. If the flow back to heart is disrupted, due to problems in the vein(s), the blood will pool in the legs and the circulation becomes sluggish. This is seen in venous insufficiency as a result of varicose veins, superficial thrombophlebitis or deep vein thrombosis.. ...
