Ca2+ and cross-bridge-induced changes in troponin C in skinned skeletal muscle fibers: effects of force inhibition. (1/205)

Changes in skeletal troponin C (sTnC) structure during thin filament activation by Ca2+ and strongly bound cross-bridge states were monitored by measuring the linear dichroism of the 5' isomer of iodoacetamidotetramethylrhodamine (5'IATR), attached to Cys98 (sTnC-5'ATR), in sTnC-5'ATR reconstituted single skinned fibers from rabbit psoas muscle. To isolate the effects of Ca2+ and cross-bridge binding on sTnC structure, maximum Ca2+-activated force was inhibited with 0.5 mM AlF4- or with 30 mM 2,3 butanedione-monoxime (BDM) during measurements of the Ca2+ dependence of force and dichroism. Dichroism was 0.08 +/- 0.01 (+/- SEM, n = 9) in relaxing solution (pCa 9.2) and decreased to 0.004 +/- 0.002 (+/- SEM, n = 9) at pCa 4.0. Force and dichroism had similar Ca2+ sensitivities. Force inhibition with BDM caused no change in the amplitude and Ca2+ sensitivity of dichroism. Similarly, inhibition of force at pCa 4.0 with 0.5 mM AlF4- decreased force to 0.04 +/- 0.01 of maximum (+/- SEM, n = 3), and dichroism was 0.04 +/- 0.03 (+/- SEM, n = 3) of the value at pCa 9.2 and unchanged relative to the corresponding normalized value at pCa 4.0 (0.11 +/- 0.05, +/- SEM; n = 3). Inhibition of force with AlF4- also had no effect when sTnC structure was monitored by labeling with either 5-dimethylamino-1-napthalenylsulfonylaziridine (DANZ) or 4-(N-(iodoacetoxy)ethyl-N-methyl)amino-7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazole (NBD). Increasing sarcomere length from 2.5 to 3.6 microm caused force (pCa 4.0) to decrease, but had no effect on dichroism. In contrast, rigor cross-bridge attachment caused dichroism at pCa 9.2 to decrease to 0.56 +/- 0.03 (+/- SEM, n = 5) of the value at pCa 9. 2, and force was 0.51 +/- 0.04 (+/- SEM, n = 6) of pCa 4.0 control. At pCa 4.0 in rigor, dichroism decreased further to 0.19 +/- 0.03 (+/- SEM, n = 6), slightly above the pCa 4.0 control level; force was 0.66 +/- 0.04 of pCa 4.0 control. These results indicate that cross-bridge binding in the rigor state alters sTnC structure, whereas cycling cross-bridges have little influence at either submaximum or maximum activating [Ca2+].  (+info)

The effect of thin filament activation on the attachment of weak binding cross-bridges: A two-dimensional x-ray diffraction study on single muscle fibers. (2/205)

To study possible structural changes in weak cross-bridge attachment to actin upon activation of the thin filament, two-dimensional (2D) x-ray diffraction patterns of skinned fibers from rabbit psoas muscle were recorded at low and high calcium concentration in the presence of saturating concentrations of MgATPgammaS, a nucleotide analog for weak binding states. We also studied 2D x-ray diffraction patterns recorded under relaxing conditions at an ionic strength above and below 50 mM, because it had been proposed from solution studies that reducing ionic strength below 50 mM also induces activation of the thin filament. For this project a novel preparation had to be established that allows recording of 2D x-ray diffraction patterns from single muscle fibers instead of natural fiber bundles. This was required to minimize substrate depletion or product accumulation within the fibers. When the calcium concentration was raised, the diffraction patterns recorded with MgATPgammaS revealed small changes in meridional reflections and layer line intensities that could be attributed in part to the effects of calcium binding to the thin filament (increase in I380, decrease in first actin layer line intensity, increase in I59) and in part to small structural changes of weakly attached cross-bridges (e.g., increase in I143 and I72). Calcium-induced small-scale structural rearrangements of cross-bridges weakly attached to actin in the presence of MgATPgammaS are consistent with our previous observation of reduced rate constants for attachment and detachment of cross-bridges with MgATPgammaS at high calcium. Yet, no evidence was found that weakly attached cross-bridges change their mode of attachment toward a stereospecific conformation when the actin filament is activated by adding calcium. Similarly, reducing ionic strength to less than 50 mM does not induce a transition from nonstereospecific to stereospecific attachment.  (+info)

Antioxidative and oxidative status in muscles of pigs fed rapeseed oil, vitamin E, and copper. (4/205)

The susceptibility of a given muscle tissue to lipid oxidation may not only depend on the presence of unsaturated fatty acids and the balance between antioxidants and prooxidants, but also on the composition of the skeletal muscle. In the present study, the effects of dietary supplementation of vitamin E (dl-alpha-tocopheryl acetate) and copper in combination with a high level of monounsaturated fatty acids were examined with regard to the antioxidant concentration and the susceptibility to lipid oxidation of two muscles, longissimus (LD) and psoas major (PM), representing different oxidative capacity. In addition, fatty acid profiles of the backfat and the intramuscular lipids, as well as fresh meat quality traits, were studied. Pigs were allotted to a 3x3 factorial experiment with three levels of dl-alpha-tocopheryl acetate (0, 100, and 200 mg/kg of feed) and three levels of copper (0, 35, and 175 mg/kg of feed) added to a diet containing 6% rapeseed oil. A basal diet (without rapeseed oil) was added to the experimental design, giving a total of 10 dietary treatments. Muscle alpha-tocopherol concentrations increased (P<.001) with increasing dl-alpha-tocopheryl acetate in the feed. The antioxidative status was higher in PM than in LD, when considering the concentration of alpha-tocopherol (P<.001) and the activity of antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase, P<.001; glutathione peroxidase, P = .06). Supplemental copper did not give rise to any deposition of copper in muscle tissue or backfat, but the antioxidant status of PM increased. The susceptibility to lipid oxidation was reduced in LD with increasing dietary dl-alpha-tocopheryl acetate and in PM with increasing dietary copper. Supplemental dl-alpha-tocopherol acetate improved the water-holding capacity of LD (P = .005) and PM (P = .003). The fatty acid composition of the backfat and the triglyceride fraction of the intramuscular fat became more unsaturated with the addition of rapeseed oil to the feed. Higher intakes of monounsaturated fatty acids due to the rapeseed oil were also reflected in the phospholipid fraction of the intramuscular fat, but no influence on the proportion of saturated fatty acids was seen. The susceptibility to lipid oxidation of PM was lower for pigs on the rapeseed oil-based diet than for those on the basal diet. The energy metabolic status of the muscles and the accumulation of calcium by the sarcoplasmic reticulum were not influenced by the dietary treatments, but there were differences between muscle types. The addition of rapeseed oil to the diet reduced the muscular content of glycogen (LD, P = .02; PM, P = .06) and elevated the plasma concentration of free fatty acids (P = .05). Overall, dietary fat, dl-alpha-tocopherol acetate, and copper affected the oxidative status of pig muscles, and the results differed depending on muscle type.  (+info)

Anatomical differences in the psoas muscles in young black and white men. (5/205)

The anatomy of the psoas major muscle (PMA) in young black and white men was studied during routine autopsies. The forensic autopsies included 44 fresh male cadavers (21 black, 23 white) with an age span of 14 to 25 y. The range for weight was 66-76 kg and for height 169-182 cm. The PMA was initially measured in its entire length before measuring the diameter and circumference at each segmental level (L1-S1). At each segmental level, the calculated anatomical cross-sectional area (ACSA) was more than 3 times greater in the black group compared with the white (P < 0.001). The psoas minor muscle (PMI) was absent in 91% of the black subjects, but only in 13% of the white subjects. These data show that the PMA is markedly larger in black than white subjects. The marked race specific difference in the size of the PMA may have implications for hip flexor strength, spine function and race specific incidence in low back pathology, and warrants further investigation.  (+info)

Effects of inorganic phosphate on endothermic force generation in muscle. (6/205)

Using a rapid (ca. 0.2 ms) laser temperature jump technique, the rate of endothermic force generation was examined in single-skinned (rabbit psoas) muscle fibres when they were exposed to different levels of inorganic phosphate (a product released during ATP hydrolysis in active muscle). The steady force is reduced by increased phosphate but the apparent rate constant of force generation induced by a standard temperature jump (from ca. 9 degrees C to ca. 12 degrees C) increases two- to threefold when the phosphate added is increased from zero to ca. 25 mM. The increase in the apparent rate constant also exhibits saturation at higher phosphate levels and the relation is hyperbolic. Detailed examination of the data, particularly in relation to our pressure release experiments, leads to a scheme for the molecular steps involved in phosphate release and force generation in active muscle fibres, where phosphate release from attached cross-bridges involves three reversible and sequentially faster molecular steps. Step one is a moderately slow, pre-force generation step that probably represents a transition of cross-bridges from non-specific to stereospecific attached states. Step two is moderately fast and represents endothermic cross-bridge force generation (temperature sensitive) and step three is a very rapid phosphate release. Such a scheme accommodates findings from a variety of different studies, including pressure perturbation experiments and other studies where the effect of phosphate on muscle force was studied.  (+info)

Creatine kinase reaction in skinned rat psoas muscle fibers and their myofibrils. (7/205)

The aim of this study was to evaluate myofibrillar creatine kinase (EC 2.7.3.2) activity on the background of the effect of substrate channeling by myosin ATPase and to compare it with creatine kinase (CK) activity of whole skinned fibers. In order to assess CK activity, skinned fibers were prepared from the rat psoas major muscles defined by light microscopy. The activity in permeabilized fibers after treatment with saponin, Triton X-100 and Ca(2+)-free medium reached 2.80, 6.97 and 3.32 micromol ATP min(-1) mg(-1) protein, respectively, when a coupled enzyme assay system with external hexokinase and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase was used. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) revealed a possible interference among activities of sarcolemmal, sarcoplasmic, myofibrillar and mitochondrial CK from persisting structures. For evaluation of the myofibrillar CK itself, a pure myofibrillar fraction was prepared. Fraction purity was confirmed by TEM and by enzymatic assays for marker enzymes. Two procedures, i.e. the coupled enzyme assay and the evaluation of phosphocreatine (PCr) concentration before and after the CK reaction, were used for measurement of CK activity in this fraction. The procedures resulted in 3.2 nmol ATP min(-1) mg(-1) protein and 7.6 nmol PCr min(-1) mg(-1) protein, respectively. These alternative approaches revealed a discrepancy between the reacting portions of PCr by more than 50 %, which provides information about the size of the effect, generally described as substrate channeling.  (+info)

Hip and ankle range of motion and hip muscle strength in young female ballet dancers and controls. (8/205)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the hip and ankle range of motion and hip muscle strength in 8-11 year old novice female ballet dancers and controls. METHODS: Subjects were 77 dancers and 49 controls (mean (SD) age 9.6 (0.8) and 9.6 (0.7) years respectively). Supine right active hip external rotation (ER) and internal rotation (IR) were measured using an inclinometer. A turnout protractor was used to assess standing active turnout range. The measure of ER achieved from below the hip during turnout (non-hip ER) was calculated by subtracting hip ER range from turnout range, and hip ER:IR was derived by dividing ER range by IR range. Range of right weight bearing ankle dorsiflexion was measured in a standing lunge using two methods: the distance from the foot to the wall (in centimetres) and the angle of the shank to the vertical via an inclinometer (in degrees). Right calf muscle range was measured in weight bearing using an inclinometer. A manual muscle tester was used to assess right isometric hip flexor, internal rotator, external rotator, abductor, and adductor strength. RESULTS: Dancers had less ER (p<0.05) and IR (p<0.01) range than controls but greater ER:IR (p<0.01). Although there was no difference in turnout between groups, the dancers had greater non-hip ER. Dancers had greater range of ankle dorsiflexion than controls, measured in both centimetres (p<0.01) and degrees (p<0.05), but similar calf muscle range. After controlling for body weight, controls had stronger hip muscles than dancers except for hip abductor strength which was similar. Regression analyses disclosed a moderate relation between turnout and hip ER (r = 0.40). There were no significant correlations between range of motion and training years and weekly training hours. CONCLUSIONS: Longitudinal follow up will assist in determining whether or not hip and ankle range in young dancers is genetically fixed and unable to be improved with further balletic training.  (+info)

Thesis, English, Tramadol Versus Midazolam In Psoas Compartment Block (Lumbar Plexus Block) With Bupivacaine For Lower Limb Surgeries for Abd Allah Shady Mahmoud Hassan
We compared the approaches of Winnie and Capdevila for psoas compartment block (PCB) performed by a single operator in terms of contralateral spread, lumbar plexus blockade, and postoperative analgesic efficacy. Sixty patients underwent PCB (0.4 mL/kg levobupivacaine 0.5%) and subsequent spinal anesthesia for primary joint arthroplasty (hip or knee) in a prospective, double-blind study. Patients were randomly allocated to undergo PCB by using the Capdevila (group C; n = 30) or a modified Winnie (group W; n = 30) approach. Contralateral spread and lumbar plexus blockade were assessed 15, 30, and 45 min after PCB. Contralateral spread (bilateral from T4 to S5) and femoral and lateral cutaneous nerve block were evaluated by sensory testing, and obturator motor block was assessed. Bilateral anesthesia occurred in 10 patients in group C and 12 patients in group W (P = 0.8). Blockade of the femoral, lateral cutaneous, and obturator nerves was 90%, 93%, and 80%, respectively, for group C and 93%, 97%, ...
BACKGROUND: Tramadol has been administered peripherally to prolong analgesia after brachial plexus and neuraxial blocks. Our aim was to evaluate the systemic and perineural effects of tramadol as an analgesic adjunct to psoas compartment block (PCB) with levobupivacaine. METHODS: In a randomized, prospective, double-blinded trial, 60 patients (ASA I-III), aged 49-88 yr, undergoing primary total hip or knee arthroplasty underwent PCB and subsequent bupivacaine spinal anaesthesia. Patients were randomized into three groups. Each patient received PCB with levobupivacaine 0.5%, 0.4 ml kg(-1). The control group (group L, n=21) received i.v. saline, the systemic tramadol group (group IT, n=19) received i.v. tramadol 1.5 mg kg(-1) and the perineural tramadol group (group T, n=20) received i.v. saline and PCB with tramadol 1.5 mg kg(-1).

Surgical treatment is often recommended for traumatic iliopsoas hematoma. Open surgeries lead to severe surgical trauma, and minimally invasive surgeries cannot completely remove the hematoma. A new treatment protocol for traumatic iliopsoas hematoma by retroperitoneoscopic approach has been introduced. The goal of this study was to determine the safety and efficacy of retroperitoneoscopic approach used to remove iliopsoas hematoma. Between January 2009 and July 2012, 13 patients were diagnosed of traumatic iliopsoas hematoma. Retroperitoneoscopic surgeries were performed on all patients to remove the hematomas after admission. The size of hematoma, VASA score and neurologic status were dynamic evaluated before and after surgery. Soft tissue damage and complications caused by retroperitoneoscopic approach also were recorded and evaluated. We performed retroperitoneoscopic surgery to remove traumatic iliopsoas hematoma successfully on 13 patients without complications. The mean procedure time was 52.5 ±
Direct lateral transpsoas lumbar interbody fusion may prove to be an important improvement in our methods of handling degenerative conditions affecting the lumbar spine.
The specific clinical feature of tetanus is whole body muscle spasms. These spasms are intensely painful and sometime lead to some injuries. Vertebral fractures have been reported as a common complication of tetanus, however iliopsoas hematoma is a rare complication. We describe a case of iliopsoas hematoma in a tetanus patient who had not been treated with any anticoagulant or antiplatelet agents. A 72-year-old female patient was transferred to our hospital 7 days after the onset of tetanus. An iliopsoas hematoma was identified in her right iliopsoas muscle on computed tomography. There was no extravasation; thus, the hematoma improved with conservative therapy. There were no episodes that suggested a bleeding tendency, or no factors associated with hemorrhagic conditions. This is the first report of iliopsoas hematoma as a complication in a tetanus patient who did not received anticoagulation therapy. The possibility of IPH as a complication of tetanus should be considered before and during the
A method developed to study the effect of increased hydrostatic pressure on the isometric tension of a single muscle fibre is described and experiments done at room temperature (18-22°C) on glycerinated rabbit psoas muscle fibres are presented. Increase of pressure (range 1-10 MPa) caused little change in tension transducer response when a muscle fibre was relaxed. However, there was a reversible depression of isometric tension with an increase of pressure when a fibre was maximally calcium-activated or in rigor; the depression was around 15% for active tension and 30% for rigor tension, for an increase of pressure of 10 MPa (ca. 100 atm). ...

Thrss muscles make up the iliopsoas muscle: psoas major, iliac and psoas minor. Psoas major originates from the transverse processes of L1-L5 and inserts into the lesser trochanter of the thigh bone. The nerve supply of psoas major is from lumbar plexus. Iliacus originates from the upper iliac fossa, iliac crest, anterior sacroiliac ligaments and base of the sacrum. Iliacus inserts partly into the tendon of psoas major and partly into the lesser trochanter of the femoral bone. Iliacus muscle is innervated by femoral nerve. Psoas minor comes off the sides of the vertebral bodies of T12-L5 and inserts into the upper part of the pubic ramus. Psoas minor may be absent in certain individuals, and this muscle is supplied by ventral rami of the lumbar nerves ...

Learn about the unique nature of the psoas muscle as well as how to best work with tight psoas muscles through movement and release.
The Psoas muscle (pronounced so-as) is the core muscle of the human body. Attaching to the spine at the 12th thoracic vertebrae (T12) and to each of the 5 lumbar vertebrae, the psoas flows through the pelvis it inserts into the lesser trocantor of the femur (leg) bone. A large massive muscle it is located one on each side of the spine and serves as a bridge between the trunk and the legs. The psoas is the only muscle to attach the spine to the leg allowing for free swing during walking.. Located at the very core of the human organism, closest to the gravitational force the psoas affects structural balance, muscular integrity, flexibility, strength, range of motion, joint mobility, and organ functioning. It is the integration of the deepest core with the external that brings muscular synchronicity, co-ordination and suppleness. Its relationship to the diaphragm affects the breath and as part of the fear reflex - a sense of emotional well-being. In every way personal integrity is dependent upon ...

Within many Eastern traditions, the psoas is thought to be intimately connected with the sacral chakra, or sea of chi, as it is referred to in Taoist practice. Certain breathing practices associated with the psoas have the power to affect this chakra, such as consciously controlling our diaphragm to allow the lower abdomen to expand and retract. Breathing more fully and deeply, we can eventually balance the sacral chakra, a major energy center directly related to the health of the body. Guided meditation will allow participants to experience how breath moves energy through the diaphragm, iliacus and psoas muscles and myofascial connective tissue extending into the lower extremities. ...

What went incorrect? Modern sedentary way of lives, specifically among travelling workplace employees, are largely to blame for chronic hip flexor problems. Sitting for hours at a time shuts down the hip flexor muscles and triggers adaptive shortening, a condition in which the muscles begin to get much shorter due to remaining in the very same position for too long. Psoas Muscle Strengthening Exercises.. Stopping working to stretch after exercise or focusing excessive on the backs of your legs without likewise carrying out hip flexor workouts leaves some hip muscles loose while others continue to tighten up from lack of movement. How do you know if you require to enhance hip flexors? Be on the lookout for several of these signs: Lower pain in the back Difficulty standing up straight Tender or stiff muscles in the hip location Pain in the upper groin Dull discomfort advancing to more serious discomfort Chronic hip tightness Weak stomach muscles Anterior pelvic tilt Knee discomfort Failing to ...
Anatomy of the Hip Flexor Muscles. The Iliopsoas actually consists of two muscles: the Iliacus and the Psoas Major. Together, they are known as the Iliopsoas. All together these are the major hip flexor muscles of the body.
We report a case of 64-year-old male with prostate cancer and coagulation disorder presented with abdominal distension. He underwent abdomen and pelvis ultrasound for assessment of ascites, which showed localized fluid collections identified at the left and right iliac fossa. After that, non enhanced abdomen and pelvis CT scan was performed and showed heterogeneous organized collections identified along the psoas muscles bilaterally, causing focal contour bulge representing haematoma.

The psoas muscle is buried deep in the front core of our body. Its traditionally been considered a hip flexor muscle due to its powerful ability to flex the leg towards the trunk. However, many of its attachments are anchored to the vertebrae and vertebral discs, so now more anatomists and movement specialists are considering its role in spinal stabilization and health.. Though it attaches to the spine near the back of the body, the psoas is classed as an anterior muscle. Some anatomists even refer to it as the deepest abdominal muscle due to its ability to flex the spine as well as the hip.. We have two psoas muscles, collectively known as the psoae or psoai. They run parallel to each other, originating at the spine and then fanning down through the back of the pelvis to insert themselves at the inner upper thigh bones (lessor trochanters).. The uppermost attachments of the psoae begin at the 12th thoracic vertebrae, located at the base of the back ribs. They also attach on to the lumbar ...

Its not listed in the muscle section, nor in the exercise section. I thought the V up and related exercises would heavily activate that muscle. Its not mentioned in hip flexors which, I thought it was a part of. I know its not a visible muscle, so some body builders might not be interested in it, but Im an athlete looking for total body fitness for functional movement. I do some weightlifting, yoga, run, hike, bike, and ski and am presently looking at potential muscle imbalances and ways to correct them.

The lumbar plexus is a network of nerve fibres that supplies the skin and musculature of the lower limb. It is located in the lumbar region, within the substance of the psoas major muscle and anterior to the transverse processes of the lumbar vertebrae.
The psoas primarily flexes the hip and the spinal column. At about 16 inches long on the average, it is one of the largest and thickest muscles of the body. This powerful muscle runs down the lower mid spine beginning at the 12th thoracic vertebrae connecting to all the vertebral bodies, discs and transverse processes of all the lumbar vertebrae down across the pelvis to attach on the inside of the top of the leg at the lesser trochanter. The lower portion combines with fibers from the iliacus muscle, which sits inside the surface of the pelvis and sacrum, to become the Iliopsoas muscle as it curves over the pubic bone and inserts on the lesser trochanter. ...

Glycerol-extracted rabbit psoas muscle fibers were examined by electron microscopy both before and after ATP-induced isotonic shortening. Ultrastructural changes were correlated with the initial sarcomere length and the degree of shortening. The ultrastructural appearance of the resting fiber at rest length was identical with that described by H. E. Huxley and Hanson. At sarcomere lengths greater than 3.7 to 3.8 µ, the A and I filaments were detached and separated by a gap. The presence of gap filaments was confirmed, and evidence is presented which indicates that these filaments form connections between the ends of the A and I filaments. Shortening from initial sarcomere lengths at which the filaments overlapped took place through sliding of the filaments. If shortening was initiated from sarcomere lengths at which there was a gap, a narrowing of the I band was brought about by a curling of the I filaments at the boundary between the A and I bands. No evidence could be found that the I ...

by DANIELLE PROHOM OLSON for Body Divine Yoga. I was delighted when I first came across Liz Kochs amazing work because it confirmed much of what Id been intuiting on my own. I had begun to open and close my yoga practise with hip opening poses with the specific intention of releasing tension in my psoas and hip flexors. Id breathe and imagine tension flowing out of constricted muscles to be released as energy into the torso.. It worked, Id feel my body soften yet somehow grow stronger.. Reading Liz Koch I instantly realized what I was doing - by learning to relax my psoas I was literally energizing my deepest core by reconnecting with the powerful energy of the earth. According to Koch, the psoas is far more than a core stabilizing muscle; it is an organ of perception composed of bio-intelligent tissue and literally embodies our deepest urge for survival, and more profoundly, our elemental desire to flourish.. Well, I just had to learn more. Here is just a sprinkling of the research that ...

Wow, I am now officially more confused than when I started reading this article. I appreciate the details and understand them, but where to go from here is the question, besides being doped up on tons of pain medication, effectively putting a band aid on the situation and not fixing it. I was diagnosed with pelvic tension myalgia and a tendency toward a really tight psoas by a physiotherapist trained in pelvic work. All she did for 8 months was have me do stretches and strengthening exercises like kegels. Ive always heard that strengthening and especially Kegels are a no no for hypertonic muscles. My pain was extremely intense from top of my hip flexor through the groin and down into my left testicle on and off. I was checked by a urologist, gastroenteroligist, and after everything was ruled out, it was declared that I have CPP. I had it intensely for 1.5 years and then it went away for about 4 months.

The psoas sign, also known as Copes psoas test or Obraztsovas sign, is a medical sign that indicates irritation to the iliopsoas group of hip flexors in the abdomen, and consequently indicates that the inflamed appendix is retrocaecal in orientation (as the iliopsoas muscle is retroperitoneal). It is elicited by performing the psoas test by passively extending the thigh of a patient lying on his side with knees extended, or asking the patient to flex his thigh at the hip. If abdominal pain results, it is a positive psoas sign. The pain results because the psoas borders the peritoneal cavity, so stretching (by hyperextension at the hip) or contraction (by flexion of the hip) of the muscles causes friction against nearby inflamed tissues. In particular, the right iliopsoas muscle lies under the appendix when the patient is supine, so a positive psoas sign on the right may suggest appendicitis. A positive psoas sign may also be present in a patient with a psoas abscess. It may also be positive ...
INTRODUCTION. When the psoas minor muscle is present in humans, it is located in the posterior wall of the abdomen, laterally to the lumbar spine and in close contact and anteriorly to the belly of the psoas major muscle (Van Dyke et al., 1987; Domingo, Aguilar et al., 2004; Leão et al., 2007). Although its function is considered to be extremely subtle, it aids in flexing the spine and, in cases in which its fibers are joined to those of the psoas major, it aids in flexing the hips (Pellegrino et al., 1998). Anatomical studies on the psoas minor muscle have revealed that ethnic and racial characteristics have a large influence on the frequency of its presence in human beings. Snell (1999) and Donovan et al. (1981) observed that it was absent in 40% of the cases analyzed. Not only can the frequency of its presence vary, but also its morphology. According to Testut & Latarjet (1976), it is not rare to find the psoas minor muscle reduced to only one or two tendons. In a description by Gardner et ...
The femoral nerve is a nerve in the thigh that supplies skin on the upper thigh and inner leg, and the muscles that extend the knee. The femoral nerve is the largest branch of the lumbar plexus, and arises from the dorsal divisions of the ventral rami of the second, third, and fourth lumbar nerves (L2-L4). It descends through the fibers of the psoas major muscle, emerging from the muscle at the lower part of its lateral border, and passes down between it and the iliacus muscle, behind the iliac fascia; it then runs beneath the inguinal ligament, into the thigh, and splits into an anterior and a posterior division. Under the inguinal ligament, it is separated from the femoral artery by a portion of the psoas major. The muscles innervated by the femoral nerve extend the knee. The nerve is also responsible for sensation over the front and inner sides of the thigh, shin, and arch of the foot.[citation needed] Within the abdomen the femoral nerve gives off small branches to the iliacus muscle, and a ...
2. Have the client reach her arms up over her head. The client should not stretch. The massage therapist should then handle the clients arms. Look at the knuckles on the thumbs and see if they match. The thumb that appears shorter shows tightness in the psoas. (Also, pay attention to any restrictions that might appear in the shoulder, which would affect the positioning of the thumbs.) 3. Bend knee on affected side.. 4. Stand at the clients side.. 5. Through the sheet (never place a hot stone on bare skin without moving it), place one large hot stone (sacrum stone; 127 to 130 degrees Fahrenheit) on its edge on the landmark of the psoas. Ask the client to take several slow, deep breaths. The first breath should fill the abdomen, followed by deep breath filling the upper chest. Make sure the client breathes deeply, in through the nose and exhales with force out through the mouth. Follow the clients exhalation with mild pressure with the stone in toward the psoas.. 6. When the client inhales, ...

Dedicated guide to the lumbar plexus provides invaluable anatomical and surgical insights Thorough knowledge of the lumbar plexus and its branches is crucial to achieving positive patient outcomes, especially with newer surgical approaches. Many of the nerve branches are formed within the psoas major muscle and careful dissection is necessary to free them during surgery to prevent damage. Moreover, the iliac vessels are medial to some of the larger branches of the plexus, such as the femoral and obturator nerves. In the retroperitoneal space, the kidney and ureter are nearby. In addition, due to the overlying peritoneal cavity and its contents, accessing the lumbar plexus presents considerable challenges.. Surgical Anatomy of the Lumbar Plexus is the only book on the market devoted to the lumbar plexus and its branches, focusing on anatomy and clinical applications, pathology, surgery, and imaging.

Continued From Above... From the lumbar plexus it extends with the fibers of the psoas major muscle inferiorly through the abdomen along the anterior surface of the hip bone. As it passes through the abdomen, a branch of the femoral nerve extends to provide nervous connections to the iliacus muscle, a flexor of the thigh. From the abdomen the femoral nerve next passes deep to the inguinal ligament in the groin and crosses the hip joint to enter the femoral region. In the femoral region, the femoral nerve separates into two nerve trunks - the anterior and posterior divisions - before further dividing into many smaller branches throughout the anterior and medial thigh.. Several cutaneous and muscular branches split from the anterior branch of the femoral nerve to carry nerve signals to specific targets in the thigh and leg. The medial cutaneous branch spreads vertically throughout the skin of both the medial thigh (through its anterior branch) and the medial leg (through its posterior branch). ...
Contralateral psoas hematoma after minimally invasive, lateral retroperitoneal transpsoas lumbar interbody fusion: a multicenter review of 3950 lumbar levels.
The activation of contraction in vertebrate skeletal muscle involves the binding of Ca2+ to low-affinity binding sites on the troponin C (TnC) subunit of the regulatory protein troponin. The present study is an investigation of possible cooperative interactions between adjacent functional groups, composed of seven actin monomers, one tropomyosin, and one troponin, along the same thin filament. Single skinned fibers were obtained from rabbit psoas muscles and were then placed in an experimental chamber containing relaxing solution maintained at 15 degrees C. Isometric tension was measured in solutions containing maximally and submaximally activating levels of free Ca2+ (a) in control fiber segments, (b) in the same segments after partial extraction of TnC, and finally (c) after recombination of TnC into the segments. The extraction was done at 11-13 degrees C in 20 mM Tris, 5 mM EDTA, pH 7.85 or 8.3, a procedure derived from that of Cox et al. (1981. Biochem. J. 195:205). Extraction of TnC was ...
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs that can regulate their target genes at the post-transcriptional level. Skeletal muscle comprises different fiber types that can be broadly classified as red, intermediate, and white. Recently, a set of miRNAs was found expressed in a fiber type-specific manner in red and white fiber types. However, an in-depth analysis of the miRNA transcriptome differences between all three fiber types has not been undertaken. Herein, we collected 15 porcine skeletal muscles from different anatomical locations, which were then clearly divided into red, white, and intermediate fiber type based on the ratios of myosin heavy chain isoforms. We further illustrated that three muscles, which typically represented each muscle fiber type (i.e., red: peroneal longus (PL), intermediate: psoas major muscle (PMM), white: longissimus dorsi muscle (LDM)), have distinct metabolic patterns of mitochondrial and glycolytic enzyme levels. Furthermore, we constructed small RNA libraries for

|p|Three patients are presented who sustained a lesion of iliopsoas muscle belly accompanied by intramuscular haematoma. Diagnosis was stated by means of CT scans. The accident such as fall of the stairs was the cause of the lesion in only two patients. The clinical manifestation of the illness significantly differed in symptoms such as: presence of subcutaneous haematomas, muscle tension, extent of pain, a drop of hemoglobin serum - level and others. The common feature of this mutilation was the maximal localization of the pain at the groin region of the affected side, difficulties in thigh dorsiflexion and external rotation as well as subsiding of symptoms after short-term conservative treatment. The characteristic of this rarely-diagnosed mutilation was analyzed on the basis of medical literature.|/p|

In 1998, a minimally invasive retroperitoneal transpsoas approach to the lumbar spine was described that provided surgeon access to the anterior lumbar spine with less morbidity than that associated with the traditional retroperitoneal approach [1] while providing equivalent biomechanics [2]. In this procedure, the patient is typically placed in the right lateral decubitus position (so as to avoid the liver).

For many therapists, treating low-back pain is the number-one issue for their patients. While there are likely a myriad of causes for this pain, the biggest factor is the iliopsoas muscle. When the iliopsoas muscle becomes contracted due to injuries, poor posture, extended stints of sitting, or even stress, it can alter the biomechanics of the pelvis and lumbar, thoracic, and even cervical vertebrae. Called the hidden prankster by authors Janet Travell and David Simons, this enigmatic muscle is the key to restoring power, ease and fluidity to not only the low back but also to the rest of the body.. ...

Previous research has reported that many muscles of the trunk and lower limb were greater in sprinters than in non-sprinters. However, the specific muscles that contribute to superior sprint performance for sprinters have not been fully identified. Suga et al. examined the relationships between the trunk and lower limb muscle cross-sectional areas and sprint performance in well-trained male sprinters.. Their findings showed that larger absolute and relative cross-sectional areas of the psoas major and gluteus maximus correlated with better personal best 100m sprint times. Therefore, the psoas major and gluteus maximus may be specific muscles for superior sprint performance for sprinters. The study also corroborates previous studies suggesting that the hamstring may not be an important muscle for achieving superior sprint performance.. ...

If the MPPT did not reproduce (or produce) any nerve pain, this could simply mean that the nerve is not affected, or that youre either not at the right spot, not pushing hard enough, or that its one of those clients who dont respond to MPPT (more on that below). Make sure to move around a little before giving up, to make sure that the right spot - directly onto the nerves course - is being compressed.. If all the symptoms fit the respective nerve youre suspecting, for example the genitofemoral nerve in the scenario with the psoas major compression above, but the MPPT is definitely negative, there are more methods to check for potential nerve irritation. You can use a manual muscle test (MMT) to see if contraction of the muscle reproduces the pain, or you can use a specific exercise to target the muscle in question with a task that requires higher work capacity. If MPPT didnt reproduce the pain, and you decide to try MMT and SSEs, the pain may not appear until the day after.. Ive also ...

Quick anatomy lesson. When we talk about the hips, were talking about any muscle that crosses over the hip joint, says Laura Miranda D.P.T., M.S.P.T., C.S.C.S., a New York City-based trainer and creator of the Pursuit training program. Which, there are many, including all of the glute muscles, the hamstrings, the inner thigh muscles, and the psoas muscles (deep core muscles that attach your pelvis to your spine). Each of these muscles has some specific roles, but overall, the hip muscles stabilize your pelvis and thighbone as you move. They also allow you to bend at the hips, lift your legs out to the side (abduct), and bring your legs back in toward one another (adduct). Basically, they do a lot, and when theyre weak or tight or otherwise not working in an optimal way, you can not only end up with cranky hips, but other body parts may overcompensate and take on too much work-leaving you with other, seemingly unrelated, issues, like knee pain. ...

In addition, by revving up our fight or flight response, caffeine drains our healing Qi energy stores. If caffeine does not stimulate you, its a sign that your stress-handling system is already exhausted and is now in the danger zone. I find that once I get my patients off caffeine for a month or more, says Kan, they regain the ability to produce the proper neurochemicals in response to caffeine.

External iliac artery endofibrosis (EIAE) is an uncommon disease that affects a large number of athletes. The pathogenesis of EIAE is unclear. We offer an additional possible cause, with a direct relationship between EIAE and psoas muscle hypertrophy
But like all language of the body, scoliosis also has a powerful emotional component. The iliopsoas muscle, responsible for torquing the spine, is part of the instinctive flee or fight survival mechanism. As part of the fear reflex, the psoas instinctively contracts whenever we feel afraid.. Rather than surgical straightening, unraveling spinal tension and scoliosis, like untying a knot, only happens when a child feels safe to soften defense systems and release and resolve the tension.. Scoliosis is intimately intertwined with a childs self-esteem. When a young girl is told by insensitive doctors that they can straighten her out, it does not address the deeper core issues surrounding the physical manifestation being expressed in her body.. There are many alternatives to surgery that can bring structural integrity, increased awareness, emotional stability and offer children a positive experience of being in their body.. Gentle osteopathy and crania/sacral balancing address the need to create a ...

By now I was no longer ahead of the masses and there were bodies everywhere. This leads to an interesting topic in my mind. These races arent draft legal but the only way to escape drafting on a course with 3,000 people all crammed together is to either be way out in front, or be way out behind..anything in between is brutal. I am not one to promote drafting and I dislike when people do it….but I honestly dont see it being avoidable to SOME degree in these massive races. If Ironman doesnt want to have draft legal races then maybe they should lower the entry counts….I was pretty surprised by it.. Anyways, things had settled down a bit and I was back sticking to my race plan. Take it nice and easy on the first lap and conserve for the 2nd. The famous mama bear, baby bear, poppa bear hills will take their toll on you if you overcook them. Not to mention the long steady climbs prior to those shorter steeper ones. Without going into too much detail, that tight iliopsoas muscles I mentioned ...
Complete myofibril test system specifically designed to measure the nano Newton forces arising from activation of single myofibrils
Spirals are shown both in the shapes of the leg and arm bones and in the interaction between them at the joints. Even the fiber of muscles indicates spirals that interact in a double helix pattern to create springy tubes, set in a basket-weave pattern that offers a form of stored kinetic potential when released from weight bearing. Rather than seeing distinct and isolated pulley action of muscles to move bones as levers, we see that walking is an orchestration of this kinetic-potential pattern in action. Simultaneously the body is in lateral, rotational, and a gathering, push/reach fluctuation along the vertical and sagittal plane.6 Gracovetskys model of the spring between two sticks that represented the spine between the two girdles demonstrated the lateral and rotational coordination but did not demonstrate the gathering and push/reach actions. These actions require the cooperation of the spine with the pelvis and legs, and are facilitated by the function of the psoas connection between ...
