Fibrocartilage in tendons and ligaments--an adaptation to compressive load. (1/488)

Where tendons and ligaments are subject to compression, they are frequently fibrocartilaginous. This occurs at 2 principal sites: where tendons (and sometimes ligaments) wrap around bony or fibrous pulleys, and in the region where they attach to bone, i.e. at their entheses. Wrap-around tendons are most characteristic of the limbs and are commonly wider at their point of bony contact so that the pressure is reduced. The most fibrocartilaginous tendons are heavily loaded and permanently bent around their pulleys. There is often pronounced interweaving of collagen fibres that prevents the tendons from splaying apart under compression. The fibrocartilage can be located within fascicles, or in endo- or epitenon (where it may protect blood vessels from compression or allow fascicles to slide). Fibrocartilage cells are commonly packed with intermediate filaments which could be involved in transducing mechanical load. The ECM often contains aggrecan which allows the tendon to imbibe water and withstand compression. Type II collagen may also be present, particularly in tendons that are heavily loaded. Fibrocartilage is a dynamic tissue that disappears when the tendons are rerouted surgically and can be maintained in vitro when discs of tendon are compressed. Finite element analyses provide a good correlation between its distribution and levels of compressive stress, but at some locations fibrocartilage is a sign of pathology. Enthesis fibrocartilage is most typical of tendons or ligaments that attach to the epiphyses of long bones where it may also be accompanied by sesamoid and periosteal fibrocartilages. It is characteristic of sites where the angle of attachment changes throughout the range of joint movement and it reduces wear and tear by dissipating stress concentration at the bony interface. There is a good correlation between the distribution of fibrocartilage within an enthesis and the levels of compressive stress. The complex interlocking between calcified fibrocartilage and bone contributes to the mechanical strength of the enthesis and cartilage-like molecules (e.g. aggrecan and type II collagen) in the ECM contribute to its ability to withstand compression. Pathological changes are common and are known as enthesopathies.  (+info)

Extensive post-traumatic ossification of the patellar tendon. A report of two cases. (2/488)

Two men, aged 21 and 50 years, were seen with ossification of the patellar tendon after injury to the knee in adolescence. They complained of pain and had patella alta. Large bony masses were excised from below the affected patellae. The patellar tendon was then reconstructed using a Leeds-Keio ligament. The results at six and ten years, respectively, were good, with neither patient having pain or an extension lag.  (+info)

Fertility after laparoscopic management of deep endometriosis infiltrating the uterosacral ligaments. (3/488)

The aim of this study was to evaluate fertility outcome after laparoscopic management of deep endometriosis infiltrating the uterosacral ligaments (USL). From January 1993 to December 1996, 30 patients who presented with no other infertility factors were treated using laparoscopic surgery. The overall rate of intrauterine pregnancy (IUP) was 50.0% (15 patients). Only one of these 15 pregnancies was obtained using in-vitro fertilization techniques (IVF). The cumulative IUP rate for the 14 pregnancies which occurred spontaneously was 48.5% at 12 months (95% confidence interval 28.3-68.7). The rate of spontaneous pregnancies was not significantly correlated with the revised American Fertility Society (rAFS) classification. The rate of IUP was 47.0% (eight cases) for patients with stage I or II endometriosis and 46.1% (six cases) for the patients presenting stage III or IV endometriosis (not significant). These encouraging preliminary results show that in a context of infertility it is reasonable to associate classic treatment for endometriosis (e.g. lysis, i.p. cystectomy, biopolar coagulation of superficial peritoneal endometriotic lesions) with resection of deep endometriotic lesions infiltrating the USL. Apart from the benefit with respect to the pain symptoms from which these patients suffer, it is possible to use laparoscopic surgery with substantial retroperitoneal dissection and enable half of the patients to become pregnant. These results also raise the question of the influence of deep endometriotic lesions on infertility.  (+info)

Plantar aponeurosis and internal architecture of the ball of the foot. (4/488)

On the basis of its internal structure, the ball of the foot can be divided into three transverse areas, each with a different mechanical function: (1) an area proximal to the heads of the metatarsals in which the retinacula cutis are developed into a series of transverse bands, and in which the deep fibres of the plantar aponeurosis form ten sagittal septa connected to the deep transverse metatarsal ligament and through this the proximal phalanges of the toes, (2) an area below the heads of the metatarsals in which vertical fibres from the joint capsules and the sides of the fibrous flexor sheaths form a cushion below each metatarsal head, and in which fat bodies cover the digital nerves and vessels in their passage between the cushions, and (3) a distal area which comprises the interdigital web. The superficial fibres of the plantar aponeurosis are inserted into the skin of this distal area, and deep to them the plantar interdigital ligament forms a series of transverse lamellae connected to the proximal phalanges by a mooring ligament which arches from one fibrous flexor sheath to the next. When the metatarsophalangeal joints are extended, the fibres of the three areas are tensed and the skin is anchored firmly to the skeleton. The direction of the fibres in the distal and proximal area promotes the transfer of forces exerted on the skin during push-off and braking respectively, while the intermediate area is adapted to bear the weight of the body. A concentration of Pacinian corpuscles is found along the digital nerves in the weight-bearing area below the transverse metatarsal ligament. The nerves for the second, and especially for the third, interstice are close to or in contact with the sharp proximal edges of the sagittal septa.  (+info)

Effect of androgens on the cranial suspensory ligament and ovarian position. (5/488)

Androgens have been postulated to have a major role in testicular descent via regression of the cranial suspensory ligament, which in normal rodents anchors the ovary to the retroperitoneum near the lower pole of the kidney. This study aimed to quantitate the degree of descent of the foetal ovary in androgen-treated female mice to determine the role of androgens in regression of the cranial suspensory ligament and descent of the testis. Time-pregnant mice were injected with testosterone propionate or methyl testosterone (2.5-3.0 mg) in vehicle on day 13 or 14. Control animals received vehicle only. Newborn mice were anaesthetised and dissected for macroscopic anatomy of the ovary, which was quantified by measuring the vertical distance from the lower pole of the kidney to the lower pole of the ovary. Histological analysis was also performed. The external genitalia were masculinised in all females exposed to prenatal androgens. The ovaries of treated animals were mobile, with no cranial suspensory ligament, and located slightly caudal to the kidney. Wolffian duct structures were identifiable, but the gubernaculum was qualitatively unchanged compared with control females. The ovary was displaced caudally (P< 0.001), but only 15-25% of the distance to the lower abdomen. Exogenous androgens induce regression of the cranial suspensory ligament, causing the ovary to be more mobile and lower in the abdominal cavity. However, since the testicular position at birth is at or below the bladder neck, androgen-mediated regression of the cranial suspensory ligament is only an adjunct to the control of transabdominal testicular descent.  (+info)

Development of the human elbow joint. (7/488)

Many studies have been published on the development of the human elbow joint, but authors disagree on its morphogenetic timetable. Most discrepancies center on the cavitation of the elbow joint (including the humeroradial, humeroulnar, and superior radioulnar joints), and the organization of the tunnel of the ulnar nerve. We summarize our observations on the development of the elbow joint in 49 serially sectioned human embryonic (n = 28) and fetal (n = 21) upper limbs. During week 12, ossification begins in the epiphyses of the elements comprising the elbow joint. At the end of the embryonic period, the shallow groove between the posterior aspect of the medial epicondyle and the olecranon process, begins to be visible. The elbow joint cavity appears in O'Rahilly stage 21 (51 days) at the level of the humeroulnar and humeroradial interzones. Formation of the cavity begins at the medialmost portion of the humeroradial interzone and the lateralmost portion of the humeroulnar interzone. The annular ligament begins to develop in O'Rahilly stage 21 (51 days), and the superior radioulnar joint cavity appears between this ligament and the lateral aspect of the head of the radius during O'Rahilly stage 23 (56 days). We established the morphogenetic timetable of the human elbow joint.  (+info)

Cirri of the stalked crinoid Metacrinus rotundus: neural elements and the effect of cholinergic agonists on mechanical properties. (8/488)

Sea lilies are enigmatic animals due to their scarcity and their biology is comparatively neglected. Cirri, arranged in whorls of five along the sea lily stalk, anchor and support the animal. They consist of ossicles interconnected by collagenous ligaments and by a central canal. Cirri have a well-developed nervous system but lack muscular cells. A light and electron microscopic study was performed to clarify the morphology of the nervous system of the cirri. Two cellular networks were found, one of neuron-like cells and one of cells filled with bullet-shaped organelles. Both networks ramify throughout the cirral ossicles up to the interossicle ligaments. Mechanical tests were performed to analyse the influence of cholinergic agonists on the mechanical properties of these ligaments. In the tests, the cirral ligaments softened after the application of acetylcholine, muscarinic agonists and nicotinic agonists. The reaction time to muscarinic agonists was much slower than to acetylcholine and nicotinic agonists. At low concentrations, muscarinic agonists caused active development of force. No reaction to stimuli was observed in anaesthetized cirri. The data clearly establish the existence of catch connective tissue which can change its mechanical properties under nervous control mediated via nerves with cholinergic receptors. The possible sources of the observed force production are discussed and it is concluded that active contraction of collagenous ligaments causes movement of cirri.  (+info)

Explanation of Falciform ligament of the liver
The interspinous ligaments (interspinal ligaments) are thin and membranous ligaments, that connect adjoining spinous processes of the vertebra in the spine. They extend from the root to the apex of each spinous process. They meet the ligamenta flava in front and blend with the supraspinous ligament behind. The ligaments are narrow and elongated in the thoracic region, broader, thicker, and quadrilateral in form in the lumbar region, and only slightly developed in the neck. In the neck they are often considered part of the nuchal ligament. The function of the interspinous ligaments is to limit flexion of the spine.

Whole bovine nuchal ligaments, or portions thereof (in the case of commercially valuable animals), were obtained from 45 animals (28 fetal and 17 postnatal) ranging in age from 110 days of gestation to 10 yr. Insoluble elastin was quantitatively prepared from the fresh ligaments by extraction with hot alkali and by a combination of multiple extractions with alkaline buffer and then repeated autoclaving. When adult samples were examined, the yields of insoluble residue by these two methods were very similar, but with young fetal samples the second method gave significantly higher values, because of incomplete purification of the elastin residue. The changes in the concentration of collagen, alkali-insoluble elastin, and DNA have been examined. DNA concentration, and, thus, cell population density, fell progressively during the fetal period of development, to reach a steady value soon after birth. Collagen appeared in appreciable quantities before elastin, but its concentration was rapidly halved ...

Falciform Ligament is a ligament that attaches part of the liver to the diaphragm and the abdominal wall. It is a broad and thin antero-posterior peritoneal fold, falciform in shape.
It may be difficult to move the joint. However, the sensitivity of these tests cannot always be relied upon. The nuchal fold is a normal fold of skin seen at the back of the fetal neck during the second trimester of pregnancy. This condition is very rare to occur, and the exact causes for it are not known. Keeping the head stable helps animals with a nuchal ligament to run long distances. Currently, PCR tests are available for cytomegalovirus, herpes simplex virus, HIV pathogens, and enterovirus. Yes, very common. The nuchal ligament extends into a supraspinous ligament linking the top (processes) of the vertebrae from the top of the withers to the sacrum. The best way to find out if that ligament is tight at all is to bend the tip of the horses ear down. For the testing of Kernigs sign, the person is required to lie flat down and try to flex the knees and hips to 90 degrees. If the person is positive for Kernigs sign, the sensation of pain will keep him from fully flexing the hip and knees ...
Coopers ligaments (also known as the suspensory ligaments of Cooper and the fibrocollagenous septa) are connective tissue in the breast that help maintain structural integrity. They are named for Astley Cooper, who first described them in 1840. Their anatomy can be revealed using Transmission diffraction tomography. Coopers Suspensory Ligament should not be confused with the pectineal ligament (sometimes called the inguinal ligament of Cooper) which shares the same eponym. Also, the intermediate fibers and/or the transverse part of the ulnar collateral ligament are sometimes called Coopers ligament(s). The ligaments run from the clavicle and the clavipectoral fascia branching out through and around breast tissue to the dermis of the skin overlying the breast. The intact ligament suspends the breast from the clavicle and the underlying deep fascia of the upper chest. This has the effect of supporting the breast in its normal position, and maintaining its normal shape. Without the internal ...

The right lobe is much larger than the left; the proportion between them being as six to one. It occupies the right hypochondrium, and is separated from the left lobe on its ventral surface by the falciform ligament; on its posterior surface by the ligamentum venosum for the cranial (upper) half, and by the ligamentum teres hepatis (aka Round ligament of liver) for the caudal (under) half. The ligamentum teres hepatis turns around the inferior marging of the liver to come out ventral in the falciform ligament. The right lobe is of a somewhat quadrilateral form. Its under and posterior surfaces being marked by three fossæ: the fossa for the portal vein, the fossa for the gall-bladder and the fossae for the inferior vena cava. These separate the right lobe in two smaller lobes on its left posterior part: the quadrate lobe and the caudate lobe ...

The knee is the most complex joint in the body and is formed by the articulation between the thigh bone (femur) and the shinbone (tibia). A knee cap is present over the front of the joint to provide extra protection. These bones are held together by four strong rope like structures called ligaments. Two collateral ligaments are present on either side of the knee and control the sideway movements of the knee. The other two ligaments are the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments, ACL and PCL respectively, which are present in the centre of the knee joint and cross each other to form an X. The cruciate ligaments control the back and forth movement of the knee.. Knee ligament injuries are common in athletes involved in contact sports such as soccer, football and basketball. Knee ligament injuries are graded based on the severity of injury. In grade I the ligament is mildly damaged and slightly stretched, but the knee joint is stable. In grade II there is a partial tear of the ligament. In ...

What is a ligament injury?. Ligament injuries are common- particularly in athletes- and can occur at any joint in the body. They can occur as a sprain or tear and are most common in the knee or ankle. A ligament injury will normally happen when a person falls, twists or is hit in a way which forces the body out of its normal position. The signs of an injured ligament include pain, inflammation and at times bruising around the injured area. Depending on the grade of injury, the pain may be mild, moderate or severe.. Causes of ligament injuries. You are most likely to have a ligament injury when playing sports or exercising, however you can also suffer a sprain from walking or running in day to day life. Stepping off a step and rolling your ankle may cause a ligament in your ankle to sprain. You can also suffer a ligament injury due to an impact such as in a road traffic accident.. Types of ligament injuries. There are several types of ligament injuries, and these are usually defined by a ...

Ligaments are similar in construction to tendons but their function is to bind bones together, usually supporting a joint. Unlike tendons, ligaments come in a variety of shapes: they can be chords, sheets, or bands. Where tendons are generally white in appearance, ligaments can be darker due to their mixture of elastic and finer fibers. Ligaments can be pliant and flexible in the directions where they are not binding the body. [2] These qualities make ligaments ideal for protecting joints, which may move in a variety of ways. Ligaments are tough, strong, pliable, and yet inelastic. The illiotibial band running down the outside of your thigh, for example, is strong enough to support the weight of a car without snapping!. Not all ligaments are rigid along their lengths; some ligaments have a higher proportion of elastic fibers (elastin) than collagen. Elastin [3] gives us an ability to stretch tissues just like muscles do. They distribute stress instead of maintaining it in one place. The ...

At Simply Horses we see our fair share of suspensory ligament injuries, the following article is very informative regarding research why dressage horse may suffer more than most.. Suspensory ligament injuries are relatively common in dressage horses, but there is little scientific information available on their causes. A recent study by researchers at the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket. examined the possible link between movement patterns at the collected and extended trot, and risk for suspensory ligament injuries.. Scientists used a high-speed camera to capture four Warmbloods working in collected and extended trot on three different surfaces. Each horse wore brushing boots fitted with inertial motion sensors and markers at five points on the hind legs to aid in video analysis.. The results demonstrated that when horses performed the collected trot across all three surfaces tested, there was a decrease in speed and stride length (measured in metres) but an increase in stride duration ...
This is a long, thick ligamentous cord that spans from the seventh cervical vertebra to the sacrum. The ligamentous fibers vary from superficial to deep in the band.

The three major ligaments of the hip joint, the iliofemoral, pubofemoral, and ischiofemoral, form a strong sheath around the fibrous capsule. The iliofemoral ligament is argued to be the strongest ligament in the human body. Often called the Y-shaped ligament it passes superior and anterior to the joint, running from the anterior inferior iliac spine to the intertrochanteric line. With the thinner pubofemoral and ischiofemoral ligaments it spirals around the joint to strongly stabilize this powerful joint. In addition to these large ligaments, a triangular flat band, the ligament of the head of the femur, extends from the fovea of the femoral head to the margins of the acetabular fossa. This ligament is also important because it functions as a pathway for blood vessels that supply the bone in the head of the femur ...

It is well-documented that both chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 19 (CCL19) and 21 (CCL21) mediate cell migration and angiogenesis in many diseases. However, these ligands precise pathological role in ankylosing spondylitis (AS) has not been elucidated. The objective of this study was to examine the expression of CCL19 and CCL21 (CCL19/CCL21) in AS hip ligament tissue (LT) and determine their pathological functions. The expression levels of CCL19, CCL21 and their receptor CCR7 in AS (n = 31) and osteoarthritis (OA, n = 21) LT were analyzed via real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and immunohistochemistry (IHC). The expression of CCL19, CCL21 and CCR7 in AS ligament fibroblasts was also detected. The proliferation of ligament fibroblasts was measured via a cell counting kit-8 (CCK8) assay after exogenous CCL19/CCL21 treatment. Additionally, the role of CCL19/CCL21 in osteogenesis was evaluated via RT-PCR and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in individual AS fibroblast cultures. Furthermore,
The inguinal ligament is often incorrectly referred to as a Fallopian ligament or Pouparts ligament. The physician Poupart famously noted that this particular ligament was essential to the structure of the abdomen, especially for hernia patients.

Two intrinsic (scapholunate and lunotriquetral) and two extrinsic (radiolunate and radiocapitate) wrist ligaments were studied at high and low elongation rates (1 and 100 mm/min). Statistically significant differences among all four ligaments were noted for the viscoelastic and elastic components of stress versus strain for the fully recoverable strain and early permanent deformation stress for all ligaments. Intrinsic ligaments became permanently deformed at statistically significantly higher strain levels than the extrinsic ligaments and accept larger permanent deformation at strain levels below evident fiber failure. Ultimate strength data demonstrated significant rate dependency for stress and strain for all ligaments. Intrinsic ligaments failed statistically greater stress and strain levels than the extrinsic group. Some clinical implications of these findings are discussed.. ...
Ligament injury Ligaments are there to provide stability to the joints, therefore they have some degree of stretch to them but this only to a certain extent
The remainder of the lumbar part of the diaphragm arises from the medial and lateral arcuate ligaments which are immediately lateral to the crura. The medial arcuate ligament is a thickening of the fascia covering psoas major and runs from the side of the body of L2 to the transverse process of LI. The lateral arcuate ligament is a thickening of the anterior layer of the thoracolumbar fascia covering quadratus lumborum and runs from the transverse process of LI to the tip of the 12th rib. Lateral to the arcuate ligaments the costal part of the diaphragm arises from the inner suiface of the lower six ribs and their costal cartilages, interdigitating with transversus abdominis, to insert into the anterolateral part of the central tendon.. The most anterior sternal part of the diaphragm arises by two slips from the posterior surface of the xiphoid process of the sternum.. All the muscle fibres arch upwards and medially towards their insertion into the central tendon which is situated towards the ...
The suspensory apparatus supports the fetlock. In racehorses and sometimes in foals, the entire structure of the suspensory apparatus can rupture, causing collapse of the fetlock to the ground. Breakdown can occur due to complete fracture of the sesamoids, rupture of the suspensory ligament, or rupture of the distal ligaments of the proximal sesamoids, or a combination of injuries. This catastrophic injury occurs in racehorses when the tension in the suspensory apparatus is overloaded, usually due to over-fatigue of the system.. A similar syndrome is seen in foals that have been confined for long periods of time and then overexert.. ...
Inguinal Ligament Pain is normally seen in athletes who run and sprint a lot and put these ligaments at risk of straining and tearing.

The small intestine comprises the duodenum, jejunum and ileum. On a lateral abdominal radiograph, the small intestine occupies most of the mid-ventral abdomen, lying caudal to the stomach and cranial to the bladder. It appears as smoothly curving tubes in long axis views and as circular or ring-shaped opacities in cross section. Peristaltic waves cause transient segmental narrowing, which may be recognized on plain radiographs. The duodenum runs cranially and laterally from the pylorus and then turns caudally, forming the cranial duodenal flexure. The flexure is held against the caudal surface of the right liver lobes by the hepatoduodenal ligament. The descending duodenum runs dorsally and caudally along the right abdominal wall, before turning medially at the caudal duodenal flexure. The ascending duodenum runs cranially and to the left of midline, where it becomes the jejunum at the duodenojejunal junction. The duodenum may occasionally be recognized on a plain radiograph from its characteristic

Ligaments also serve to attach several organs to the abdominal wall and join other organs with each other, such as the stomach and the spleen. Moreover, ligaments are very important for the action of chewing food, enabling and facilitating the movement of teeth and jawbones. As collagen decreases with age, our ligaments lose their resistance and their flexibility, which can cause a frequent sensation of stiffness in our joints. Ankles, knees and wrists are the most vulnerable joints in terms of ligament injuries and common sprains. These are generally caused by stretching or tearing one or more joint ligaments. The major symptoms of a sprain are pain, swelling and difficulty to move the joint ...

Most patients have a duplex ultrasound one month after surgery to make sure that there is no further compression of the median arcuate ligament. Some patients continue to have narrowing of the celiac artery because of scar tissue that has built up. This usually does not cause symptoms after surgery and can be treated with non-surgical techniques such as medications or, in rare cases, another celiac plexus block. Occasionally, other endovascular therapies may be needed. A small group of patients who have repeated episodes of MALS may be candidates for a second attempt at the release of the scar tissue. These patients, however, are at much higher risk (greater than 50%) of needing an open operation (with the assistance of a vascular surgeon).. ...

When does round ligament pain start in pregnancy? The round ligaments support the uterus and hold it in place. Round ligament pain lasts until up to several months after birth. Round ligament pain is most common during the second trimester. Round ligament pain is a common pregnancy symptom that can be uncomfortable and confusing. And the baby will be fine, as only you have to suffer the discomfort. Im 9 dpo and have been feeling round ligament pain. What Causes Round Ligament Pain? We each have two round ligaments, one on either side of the abdominal area. Some women even report pain that extends into the groin area. To relieve round ligament pain, try gentle stretching and changing your position. During pregnancy, the expanding uterus causes these ligaments to stretch. While pelvic pain is more spread out and can come from many sources (bladder, bowel, or uterus), round ligament pain is localized to either side of the groin. Know the causes, symptoms, treatment for round ligament pain. Its ...
These ligaments help keep the uterus in place as … However, the round ligament does not exist in isolation. It becomes thinner and longer as it bears bear the additional stress and tension of the expanding uterus. It is contained within a fold of peritoneum along with other structures like the fallopian tubes which are collectively referred to as the broad ligament. Im 21 and have round ligament pain but im not pregnant. Round ligament pain should always be investigated further to rule out any underlying diseases in the abdominopelvic area. This pain that may not involve or originate within the round ligament can sometimes be mistaken for round ligament pain. Round ligament pain is symptom of stretching or spasm of the round ligament or pressure on structures around the ligament.

A 10 year-old warm-blood gelding presented to PHD veterinary services for the complaint of forelimb lameness. During the lameness exam, it was noted that the gelding was moderately lame in the right front limb and the lameness appeared worse when the horse was lunged at the trot in a circle to the left. Palpation of the limb noted only mild response to pressure over the proximal suspensory ligament (back side of the limb, just below the carpus). A series of nerve and joint blocks were performed to isolate the source of the lameness. Once the proximal suspensory ligament was blocked the horses lameness improved significantly. Therefore, an ultrasound exam was performed of the soft tissue structures of the right limb with emphasis on the proximal suspensory ligament. Figures 1 and 2 correspond to the proximal suspensory ligament.

Tendon and ligament injury is a worldwide health problem, but the treatment options remain limited. Tendon and ligament engineering might provide an alternative tissue source for the surgical replacement of injured tendon. A bioreactor provides a controllable environment enabling the systematic study of specific biological, biochemical, and biomechanical requirements to design and manufacture engineered tendon/ligament tissue. Furthermore, the tendon/ligament bioreactor system can provide a suitable culture environment, which mimics the dynamics of the in vivo environment for tendon/ligament maturation. For clinical settings, bioreactors also have the advantages of less-contamination risk, high reproducibility of cell propagation by minimizing manual operation, and a consistent end product. In this review, we identify the key components, design preferences, and criteria that are required for the development of an ideal bioreactor for engineering tendons and ligaments.. ...
Jeffrey N Harr, MD, MPH, Fred Brody, MD, MBA. The George Washington University. Introduction:. Laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repairs have been performed since the early 1990s with a wide range of methods and recurrence rates. Multiple techniques are used to decrease recurrence rates, including buttressing the repair with synthetic and biological mesh. However, synthetic mesh is associated with erosions and dysphagia, and biologic buttresses are expensive and have not shown long-term decreases in recurrence rates. Therefore, a laparoscopic repair using the falciform ligament as a buttress may improve outcomes with minimizing complications.. Methods:. A prospective database was established for patients undergoing a laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repair. Baseline demographics, operative details, and preoperative symptom questionnaires were obtained. The questionnaire evaluated vomiting, nausea, early satiety, bloating, postprandial fullness, epigastric pain, epigastric burning, chest ...

Every breed and riding discipline has its own set of tendon and ligament injuries, but across the board there are four major structures in the forelimbs that are most commonly injured. Tendons and ligaments are made from the same basic tissue and have the same basic structure. The tissue is a very strong fibrous material that groups together in bundles, forming long cords. Tendons join muscle to bone and as a result, when the muscle contracts, the bone moves. Most tendons are designated as either flexor or extensor. Flexor tendons allow a joint to bend inward, towards the body (joint closes), and extensor tendons allow a joint to extend (joint opens). Ligaments join bone to bone. They are stabilising structures that essentially hold bones together and stop them from overextending, over flexing or over rotating. There are four main tendons and ligaments at the back of the horses leg that do the majority of the work: suspensory ligament, inferior check ligament, deep digital flexor tendon and the ...
The cervical spine ligaments play an essential role in limiting the physiological ranges of motion in the neck;​ however, traumatic loading such as that experienced in automotive crash scenarios can lead to ligament damage and result in neck injury. The development of detailed finite element models for injury simulation requires accurate ligament mechanical properties at relevant loading rates.. The objective of this research was to provide detailed mechanical properties for the cervical spine ligaments, by performing tensile tests at elongation rates relevant to automobile crash scenarios, using younger specimens (less than 50 years old), and to provide a comprehensive investigation of spinal level and gender effects.. The five primary ligaments (present between C2-T1) investigated were:​ the anterior longitudinal ligament, posterior longitudinal ligament, capsular ligament, ligamentum flavum, and interspinous ligament. The craniovertebral ligaments (Skull/C0-C2) investigated were the ...
Classically, chronic intestinal angina is caused by a reduction in mesenteric blood flow [1], and the pathophysiology of most cases is atherosclerotic stenosis of the celiac and mesenteric arteries. Arterial dissection, fibromuscular dysplasia, and vasculitis are included as rare etiologies of arterial narrowing, and the median arcuate ligament of the diaphragm can compress the celiac artery and disturb blood flow (median arcuate ligament syndrome) [5, 6]. Intestinal circulation consists of an abundant collateral blood supply, and chronic intestinal ischemia is associated with high-grade stenosis or occlusion of two or more of the three major vessels: the celiac artery, the superior and inferior mesenteric arteries [7, 8]. In our case, the arterial lesions were relatively mild compared with previous reports [9, 10]; thus, we hypothesized that our patients major symptoms were not due to his arterial lesions alone.. Specifically, our patients symptoms depended greatly on his hemodynamic ...
The elements that give stability to the joints are the ligaments. They are arranged in a certain way in the joint to avoid movements that the joint should not perform.. In the case of the knee are 4 ligaments whose only function is to keep it stable: the collateral ligaments and the cruciate ligaments. Here is an image with the graphic representation of the different structures of the knee joint:. On the collateral ligaments, we will not explain too much because they are not the central theme of the article: these are located one on each side of the knee (i.e. an internal collateral ligament and an external collateral ligament).. On the other hand, we will speak in depth of the cruciate ligaments, within the joint capsule of the knee. The cruciate ligaments are 2 structures that are very deep in the knee joint. The cruciate ligaments are 2: one that is located in the anterior part and one that is located in the back.. The posterior cruciate ligament extends between the posterior intercondylar ...

Following a car collision the most common diagnosis for back pain in Emergency Medicine and even in general medical practice is the sprain/strain diagnosis. A sprain is a diagnosis of a micro or macro tears of ligament tissue is called a sprain. A strain is a diagnosis of a micro or macro tears of muscle tissue and is called a strain. Sprains and strains can be graded based on how much of the muscle or ligament is torn.. The American Medical Association takes Sprains very seriously and has given these sprains a grade.. Grade 1. The ligament is mildly damaged slightly stretched but is capable of keeping your spinal joints stable and affords you normal function.. Grade 2. A grade 2 sprain is defined as the ligament has been stretched to the point that the ligament becomes too loose and does not hold the spinal joints together causing spinal dysfunction called spinal ligament laxity. This condition is considered a partial tear of the ligament tissue and is considered permanent.. Grade 3. The Grade ...

The ligamentum teres is a cord like structure that connects the femoral head to the acetabulum and is a common cause of groin or buttock pain.
Ligament sprains range from mild stretches to partial tears. In the majority of cases these. Usually, an ankle sprain itself does not require a trip to the doctor. Your knee is a complex joint with many components, making it vulnerable to a variety of injuries. It is one of the most common complaints during pregnancy and is considered. Plantar fasciitis ( inflammation to the plantar fascia ligament) is most commonly caused by strain injury causing micro tears to the ligament as it attaches to the heel bone or other areas of. This configuration allows the PCL to resist forces pushing the tibia posteriorly relative to the femur. Ligaments are tough bands of tissue that connect bones. The PCL - - similar to the anterior cruciate ligament ( ACL) - - connects. The medial collateral ligament, or MCL, is located on the inner part of the knee joint. Ligament injuries create disruptions in the balance between joint mobility and joint stability, causing abnormal force transmission throughout the joint ...
The use of conventional modalities for chronic neck pain remains debatable, primarily because most treatments have had limited success. We conducted a review of the literature published up to December 2013 on the diagnostic and treatment modalities of disorders related to chronic neck pain and concluded that, despite providing temporary relief of symptoms, these treatments do not address the specific problems of healing and are not likely to offer long-term cures. The objectives of this narrative review are to provide an overview of chronic neck pain as it relates to cervical instability, to describe the anatomical features of the cervical spine and the impact of capsular ligament laxity, to discuss the disorders causing chronic neck pain and their current treatments, and lastly, to present prolotherapy as a viable treatment option that heals injured ligaments, restores stability to the spine, and resolves chronic neck pain.. The capsular ligaments are the main stabilizing structures of the ...
Blood vessels surrounding the epithelioid cells in the tumor are characteristic of benign and malignant undefined tumors. Most patients with PEComas demonstrate benign biological behavior and unfavorable prognosis, while a few have malignant behavior and an unfavorable prognosis [6, 46]. At present, there are no clear diagnostic criteria for malignant PEComa; the clinical biological behavior of the tumor has always been controversial. According to the World Health Organization 2003 guidelines, a PEComa tumor should be viewed as malignant if it exhibits the following features: infiltrating growth; a high cell density, nuclear enlargement and hyperchromatism; an increased number of mitotic figures; and atypical nuclear division and coagulative necrosis are present. In 2005, Flope et al. [6] studied 26 cases of PEComa that occurred in the soft tissue and gynecologic reproductive organs; they proposed a series of standards whereby it could be subdivided into tumors having benign characteristics, ...
Abstract Prognosis of biliary tract cancer has generally been poor, and effective chemotherapy has not yet been established. A 64 year-old woman was admitted to our hospital for indications of gallbladder wall thickness. The diagnosis on computed tomography and ultrasonography was gallbladder cancer with liver metastasis in the inferior anterior segment. A cholecystectomy with partial hepatectomy was performed, and lymph nodes associated with the hepatoduodenal ligament, periampullary lesion, and common hepatic artery were dissected. Chemotherapy with gemcitabine after resection biweekly was administered. After 4 months, liver metastases in the anterior segment was recognized. A right hepatic lobectomy was performed. After another 4 months, lymph node metastases of posterior lesions of the pancreas head, and caudate lobe metastasis were found. We initiated combination chemotherapy using gemcitabine plus tegafur・ gimeracil・oteracil potassium (S-1). Complete response to chemotherapy was confirmed
Surgical enterobiliar anastomosis has a higher treatment mortality and morbidity than an endoscopic tent but usually remains open for the patient`s remaining survival time. A cholecystojejunostomy can be performed if the cystic duct is well expanded and opens sufficiently into the bile duct with a safe distance from the tumor. A choledochal duodenostomy gives successful results if the tumor does not grow too high into the hepatoduodenal ligament. Alternatively, an anastomosis can be made between the common hepatic duct and either the duodenum or a jejunal Roux loop. Exploration is not recommended if only installing an enterbiliary anastomosis. In these cases, endoscopic or percutaneous drainage should be performed instead. If a non-resectable tumor is found by laparotomy, surgical by-pass is recommended as routine treatment. ...

Research shows that auto injuries can actually weaken your neck. The bones of your neck are held together with bands of tissue called ligaments. The ligaments keep your spine stable and protect spinal nerves.During a car crash, your neck is exposed to a rapid, violent motions that may strain or tear the ligaments.. A 2006 study from Japan performed an anatomical study of the human neck under simulated whiplash motion. They found that the forces involved in even a mild collision can stretch the ligaments to a point that reduces their ability to stabilize the spine.. Weakened ligaments can result in permanent disability and chronic pain, as the spine can lose its stability and integrity.. If youve been injured in a crash, its important to get treatment right away to prevent worsening conditions. Your chiropractor can determine the nature of your injury and develop a treatment plan that will get you on the road to recovery.. Reference. Tominaga Y, Ndu AB, Coe MP, et al. Neck ligament strength is ...
The suspensory ligament, fundiform ligaments and several lateral extension s of the suspensory ligament that are found deep in the floor are released with an inverted V-Y penopubic skin advancement. Post operative penile weights are used to maintain the elongated length of penis. Penile lengthening surgery is a procedure that is performed to increase the length of full penis and not just penile skin.. Normally with complete separation of the penis from the pubic bone, an additional 1 to 1.5 inches of the penis in the flaccid state becomes available externally. In some cases, the length of the penis can be increased up to 2 inches. No fixed increase in length can be promised before the surgery.. If there is excessive fat in the pubic region, pubic liposuction or a pubic lift should be done to expose more of the penis. If a peno-scrotal web (turkey-neck deformity) has decreased the usable penile length, its correction can usually be performed in conjunction with penile lengthening. A penile ...
