Reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament: comparison of outside-in and all-inside techniques. (1/4075)

The aim of this prospective study was to compare two arthroscopic techniques for reconstructing the anterior cruciate ligament, the "outside-in" (two incisions) and the "all-inside" (one incision) techniques. The results obtained for 30 patients operated on using the "outside-in" technique (group I) were compared with those for 29 patients operated on using the "all-inside" technique (group II). Before surgery, there were no significant differences between the groups in terms of Lysholm score, Tegner activity level, patellofemoral pain score, or knee laxity. Both groups displayed significant improvements in Lysholm score after 24 months, from 69 (16) to 91 (9) in group I and from 70 (17) to 90 (15) in group II (means (SD)). There were also significant improvements in patellofemoral pain scores in both groups, from 13 (6) to 18 (5) in group I and from 14 (6) to 18 (4) in group II after 24 months. No difference was found between the groups in knee stability at the 24 month follow up. The IKDC score was identical in both groups at follow up. The operation took significantly longer for patients in group I (mean 94 (15)) than for those in group II (mean 86 (20)) (p = 0.03). The mean sick leave was 7.7 (6.2) weeks in group I and 12.3 (9.7) weeks in group II (p = 0.026), indicating that there may be a higher morbidity associated with the "all-inside" technique. It can be concluded that there were no significant differences between the two different techniques in terms of functional results, knee laxity, or postoperative complications. The results were satisfactory and the outcome was similar in both treatment groups.  (+info)

Phase reversal of biomechanical functions and muscle activity in backward pedaling. (2/4075)

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)

Manipulation of total knee replacements. Is the flexion gained retained? (3/4075)

As part of a prospective study of 476 total knee replacements (TKR), we evaluated the use of manipulation under anaesthesia in 47 knees. Manipulation was considered when intensive physiotherapy failed to increase flexion to more than 80 degrees. The mean time from arthroplasty to manipulation was 11.3 weeks (median 9, range 2 to 41). The mean active flexion before manipulation was 62 degrees (35 to 80). One year later the mean gain was 33 degrees (Wilcoxon signed-rank test, range -5 to 70, 95% CI 28.5 to 38.5). Definite sustained gains in flexion were achieved even when manipulation was performed four or more months after arthroplasty (paired t-test, p < 0.01, CI 8.4 to 31.4). A further 21 patients who met our criteria for manipulation declined the procedure. Despite continued physiotherapy, there was no significant increase in flexion in their knees. Six weeks to one year after TKR, the mean change was 3.1 degrees (paired t-test, p = 0.23, CI -8.1 to +2).  (+info)

The tourniquet in total knee arthroplasty. A prospective, randomised study. (4/4075)

We assessed the influence of the use of a tourniquet in total knee arthroplasty in a prospective, randomised study. After satisfying exclusion criteria, we divided 77 patients into two groups, one to undergo surgery with a tourniquet and one without. Both groups were well matched. The mean change in knee flexion in the group that had surgery without a tourniquet was significantly better at one week (p = 0.03) than in the other group, but movement was similar at six weeks and at four months. There was no significant difference in the surgical time, postoperative pain, need for analgesia, the volume collected in the drains, postoperative swelling, and the incidence of wound complications or of deep-venous thrombosis. We conclude that the use of a tourniquet is safe and that current practice can be continued.  (+info)

The relationship between submaximal activity of the lumbar extensor muscles and lumbar posteroanterior stiffness. (5/4075)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Some patients with low back pain are thought to have increased lumbar posteroanterior (PA) stiffness. Increased activity of the lumbar extensors could contribute to this stiffness. This activity may be seen when a PA force is applied and is thought to represent much less force than occurs with a maximal voluntary contraction (MVC). Although MVCs of the lumbar extensors are known to increase lumbar PA stiffness, the effect of small amounts of voluntary contraction is not known. In this study, the effect of varying amounts of voluntary isometric muscle activity of the lumbar extensors on lumbar PA stiffness was examined. SUBJECTS: Twenty subjects without low back pain, aged 26 to 45 years (X=34, SD=5.6), participated in the study. METHODS: Subjects were asked to perform an isometric MVC of their lumbar extensor muscles with their pelvis fixed by exerting a force against a steel plate located over their T4 spinous process. They were then asked to perform contractions generating force equivalent to 0%, 10%, 30%, 50%, and 100% of that obtained with an MVC. Posteroanterior stiffness at L4 was measured during these contractions. RESULTS: A Friedman one-way analysis of variance for repeated measures demonstrated a difference in PA stiffness among all levels of muscle activity. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: Voluntary contraction of the lumbar extensor muscles will result in an increase in lumbar PA stiffness even at low levels of activity.  (+info)

Effects of aggressive early rehabilitation on the outcome of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with multi-strand semitendinosus tendon. (6/4075)

To evaluate the effects of aggressive early rehabilitation on the clinical outcome of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using semitendinosus (and gracilis) tendon, 103 of 110 consecutive patients who underwent ACL reconstruction using multistrand semitendinosus tendon (ST) or the central one-third of patellar tendon with bony attachments (BTB) were analyzed prospectively. Subjectively, the Lysholm score was not different among the groups. The Lachman test indicated a trend of less negative grade in the ST men's group than that in the BTB men's group. On the patellofemoral grinding test, only women patients of both groups showed pain, with less positive crepitation in the ST group than in the BTB group. KT measurements at manual maximum showed more patients with more than 5 mm differences in the ST group than in the BTB group. The results of this study suggest that aggressive early rehabilitation after the ACL reconstruction using the semitendinosus (and gracilis) tendon has more risk of residual laxity than with the BTB.  (+info)

The role of fibular length and the width of the ankle mortise in post-traumatic osteoarthrosis after malleolar fracture. (7/4075)

We assessed the role of fibular length and the width of the ankle mortise as risk factors in the occurrence of post-traumatic osteoarthritis of the ankle joint by comparison of radiographs of the affected and unaffected sides. A shortened fibular malleolus (P < 0.01), a wide ankle mortise (P < 0.01) and Weber type B fracture (P < 0.01) were significantly associated with the development of osteoarthrosis but an elongated fibular (P > 0.05) and a narrowing of the ankle mortise (P > 0.07) were not.  (+info)

Modified Bankart procedure for recurrent anterior dislocation and subluxation of the shoulder in athletes. (8/4075)

Thirty-four athletes (34 shoulders) with recurrent anterior glenohumeral instability were treated with a modified Bankart procedure, using a T-shaped capsular incision in the anterior capsule. The inferior flap was advanced medially and/or superiorly and rigidly fixed at the point of the Bankart lesion by a small cancellous screw and a spike-washer. The superior flap was advanced inferiority and sutured over the inferior flap. Twenty-five athletes (median age: 22) were evaluated over a mean period of follow-up of 65 months. The clinical results were graded, according to Rowe, as 22 (88%) excellent, 3 (12%) good, and none as fair or poor. The mean postoperative range of movement was 92 degrees of external rotation in 90 degrees of abduction. Elevation and internal rotation was symmetrical with the opposite side. Twenty-four patients returned to active sport, 22 at their previous level. This modified Bankart procedure is an effective treatment for athletes with recurrent anterior glenohumeral instability.  (+info)

The straight leg test can be altered to test sciatic nerve function rather than muscle and tendon function. The active straight leg raise test (ASLR) is suggested as a clinical indicator of lumbopelvic stability [1, 2, 3].Poor performance during the ASLR is associated with postpartum sacroiliac (SI) pain [].Furthermore, OSullivan et al [] suggested that altered kinematics of the diaphragm and pelvic floor are likely present in those with a positive test. This position rotates the pelvis and eliminates hamstring tightness, a finding often erroneously judged as a positive test. Get PDF Abstract.

Ipsilateral hamstrings tendons harvest as a primary autograft for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction has become increasingly prevalent among orthopaedic surgeons. Though, limited evidence exists detailing ensuing knee joint performance capacity. Previous authors have reported that ipsilateral semitendinosus and gracilis (STG) harvest results in significant tibial internal rotation strength deficiencies for related patients (1,2). However, prior data in regards to this measure have been reported as absolute as opposed to relative indices of strength and have not produced endurance results. Therefore, our objective was to profile relative tibial internal rotation strength and endurance responses to STG harvest in ACL reconstructed patients 12 to 36 months following surgery. Based on prior research findings, we hypothesized STG harvest would elicit tibial internal rotation strength and endurance deficits.
Abstract:. The biomechanical and physiological effects of a single, unilateral lower cervical spinal adjustment delivered to the most restricted side of cervical lateral-flexion passive end-range were examined. Only healthy, asymptomatic male subjects who exhibited goniometrically verified lateral-flexion passive range of motion asymmetries of 10 degrees or greater on the morning of the experiment were chosen for the study. Post-treatment goniometric measurements revealed that in sham-adjusted controls, mean lateral-flexion asymmetries had not changed significantly during the 4 hour time period examined. However, in subjects who received lower cervical adjustments, dramatic ameliorations of asymmetry magnitude were observed which persisted throughout the entire 4 hour post-treatment time period. On the other hand, in the face of this rather robust biomechanical effect, heart rate and blood pressure measurements obtained at -60 and -15 minutes prior to treatments, and at 5, 30, 60, 120 and 240 ...

The most important finding of this study was that the biomechanical effect on CR-TKA varied with respect to the translation of the PCO from the posterior to the anterior direction, and that the negative biomechanical effect reduced as PTS increased.. Although the concepts of PCO and PTS were discovered a long time ago, there has recently been a specific interest in determining their functional consequences in TKA. Bellemans et al7 defined the concept of PCO. They determined fluoroscopically that in 72% of the CR-TKAs considered in their study, the maximum active flexion was limited by direct impingement of the posterior aspect of the tibial component against the posterior aspect of the femur. They also showed in a cadaveric study that surgeons can expect to achieve a mean flexion of 1.7° with every each degree of PTS.45. On the other hand, previous studies showed that there was no difference in the postoperative ROM between the knees with 0° and 5° of PTS in posterior-stabilized TKA.10,46 ...

The examiner first extends the wrist to lengthen the extrinsic wrist extensors and keep them from interfering with the test. Then the examiner flexes the patients proximal IP joint and looks at available flexion ROM with the MP extended. The examiner then flexes the MP joint and looks at available flexion ROM in this position in the proximal IP joint. A positive test is indicated if in MP flexion the proximal IP joint cannot also flex as this indicates capsule tightness. A positive test for intrinsic muscle tightness is found if in the extended MP position the proximal IP joint cannot go through its full range of motion.. ...
One major system that often times gets overlooked in the strength and conditioning/quarterback training world is the neuromuscular system and how that effects movement. One thing that we absolutely know is that the position of the body, especially the torso on the pelvis, is going to greatly affect the movement quality of the athlete. Follow me here. For most athletes that lack hip internal rotation range of motion, there is a neuromuscular component involved in the reason. This means that there is tone that is being generated by the system because of faulty positioning. The one way that we can brain hack our way into make change in this system is through the power of breathing. Positional breathing will do a lot of good to increase hip internal rotation because of many reasons. First, we athletes will be training how to use the diaphragm as a main breathing muscle. By using the top of the pelvic funnel as the main breathing muscle, this will increase the ability of the diaphragm to act as ... says car buyers looking for an plug-in hybrid dont need to worry about the range anxiety that scares drivers away from pure electric vehicles.

The graphic shows that joint motion is divided into three distinct categories:. 1) Active Range of Motion. This is the range of motion the patient can achieve through their own active efforts.. 2) Passive Range of Motion. This range of motion is primarily achieved by the physician / therapist who pushes the involved joint beyond the active range of motion. The passive range of motion is greater than the active range of motion. The passive range of motion will influence a larger range of tissue than does the active range of motion.. Dr. Kirkaldy-Willis states (1):. Beyond the end of the active range of motion of any synovial joint, there is a small buffer zone of passive mobility. A joint can only move into this zone with passive assistance, and going into this passive range of motion constitutes mobilization.. [This is mobilization, not manipulation]. 3) Paraphysiological Range of Motion. This range of motion is only achieved by moving beyond the Passive Range of Motion.. Dr. Kirkaldy-Willis ...

Accurate and consistent measurement of joint ROM is important for physical examination and disability evaluation. In the current healthcare scenario, accurate medical recording has become critical [9]. The ability of healthcare providers to effectively communicate a subjects condition or improvement is significant. However, measurement methods are extremely diverse, with no consensus or guidelines regarding measurement tools, joint positions, and pushing force.. Therefore, in this study, we developed an innovative method for measuring joint ROM. A standardized protocol (KRSP) applied to each joint was completed through preliminary experiments and consultation from experts.

When you go in to visit the doctor, he or she may ask you a number of questions about your health and health history. They may also do a physical exam and a series of tests to help diagnose the problem. They may want you to do a straight leg raise test. This is where they have you lie down and the doctor will slowly start to raise each leg further and further until you start to feel the pain. This can help the doctor determine where your pain begins and help them pinpoint what nerves are being affected. The doctor may also want to run other tests such as a spinal x-ray or an MRI to look for fractures in the spine or on the disks. ...

Postoperative care: Distraction is commenced at day 10. 0,25 mm of lengthening is perfomed 4 times daily (every 6 hours). Hip and knee joint motion exercises begin at 1-2. day postoperatively. For many years, the treatment of lower extremity shortness has been very hard for the patient and the surgeon. The techniques developed after the introduction of Ilizarovs distraction osteogenesis concept have pioneered a new era, and have been considered to be procedures in which previous complications are encountered much less frequently.. Today the most important properties that an extemity lengthening method shall possess are application time, ability to correct alignment (anatomic and mechanical axis of the extremity), number of total operations required, ability to protect the regenerated bone from refracture, minimum rate of pin tract site infection and possible complications, preservation of joint motion, healing time, comfortability in daily life and application cost.. In selected cases, we ...

You will likely start to resolve flexion issues by dealing with respect and impulsion issues first. If your horse cant be a calm and responsive partner, you should not worry yet about how it is physically moving. However, as you progress up the Levels, there is more and more information available for correct flexion. In Level 4 in all Four Savvys, you will be focusing on foundation for performance, which is where body position and shaping will be more important. Also, learn about correct saddle fitting and the Game of Contact (post-Level 4), which will introduce and expand your awareness of longitudinal flexion. There are also lots of ways to learn about your horses body and how it moves in books and videos from vets, massage therapists, advanced riders, and other horse lovers around the world. The main thing is to start being aware of flexion. You may not have the desire to compete with your horse, or maybe even ride - but your horse will thank you ...

82 modules that perform specific tasks. For each active sensor on the network, a corresponding module is act ivated. Each module handles several important functions including the following: Data display: each module graphically displays the raw incoming data of its corresponding sensor. If the user creates multiple data buses during processing, each processed dat a bus is also graphically displayed. Auto calibrate: Sensors are going to output different ranges of data from one use to the next depending on a number of factors including environment, battery power, user, and varying physical placement. The software cli ent, however, expects a total range of data between 0.0 and 1.0. A button on the UI allows the user to run an auto calibrate routine on the incoming data. Calibration uses this linear mapping function: y=(x xmin)/(xmax xmin)*(ymax ymin)+ymin; where ymin an d ymax are the permanent lower and upper boundaries (0.0 and 1.0) and xmin and xmax are the movable boundaries of incoming data. ...
Suppose you want to generate characters in the alphabet {A,B,C,D} with proportions of 4/10, 2/10, 3/10, and 1/10, respectively. One way would be to divide a dartboard into regions of those exact proportional sizes and throw a dart at it. If the dart landed in the A region (which consumes 40% of the total area), write down A, etc.. You can implement this by generating an integer randomly in the range [0..9]. If the integer is in [0..3], call that A. If its [4..5], call that B. If in [6..8], write down C. If a 9, write down D. That is, the appropriate percentage of the range corresponds to the probability of the symbol within the alphabet. Assuming the number generated is actually random within the total range, this will produce the desired distribution. Now generalize this procedure to any total and any proportional distribution of symbols within that range.. ...

  • When conservative treatment fails, surgical options include shoulder arthroscopy and manipulation under anesthesia in order to increase joint capsular mobility and range of motion. (
  • Like all other synovial joints, a thin layer of smooth articular cartilage covers the joint-forming processes of the ilium and the sacrum at the sacroiliac joint. (
  • The articular surfaces of both bones are rough and bumpy, providing an interlocking surface to prevent extraneous movement at the joint. (
  • The irregular shape of the bones, however, severely limits the range of movement at the joint but helps to strengthen the joint and prevent dislocation. (
  • Through its articular cartilage, the sacroiliac joint also acts as a shock absorber to limit the force transfer between the spine and pelvis. (
  • Movements at the sacroiliac joint help to increase the range of motion of the legs relative to the trunk, much like the movement of the shoulder blades works with the shoulder joint. (
  • One of the effects of relaxin is the increased flexibility of the ligaments that hold the sacroiliac joint together, resulting in a looser joint and increased range of motion. (

  • The energy of the blow is absorbed by the fracture and may cause damage to the articular cartilage of both the patella and the femoral condyles. (
  • If the extensor mechanism has not been disrupted and if intra-articular stepoff is less than 2 mm, the fracture may be treated nonoperatively. (
  • This type of fracture, with less than 2 mm of intra-articular stepoff, can be treated with a nonoperative modality. (
  • Comminuted distal femur fracture is a challenging injury, and care must be taken to reduce the articular fragment and acquire the sufficient stability for the metaphyseal comminution. (

(
  • Computed tomography is often used to fully appreciate the complexity of the fracture and define the medial extent of the fracture, articular impaction, and metaphyseal and condylar comminution. (
  • Conclusion Initial fracture position, type of comminution, and intra-articular involvement influenced the clinical outcome in DRF. (
