The use of mental images produced by the imagination as a form of psychotherapy. It can be classified by the modality of its content: visual, verbal, auditory, olfactory, tactile, gustatory, or kinesthetic. Common themes derive from nature imagery (e.g., forests and mountains), water imagery (e.g., brooks and oceans), travel imagery, etc. Imagery is used in the treatment of mental disorders and in helping patients cope with other diseases. Imagery often forms a part of HYPNOSIS, of AUTOGENIC TRAINING, of RELAXATION TECHNIQUES, and of BEHAVIOR THERAPY. (From Encyclopedia of Human Behavior, vol. 4, pp29-30, 1994)

Joint symmetry in early and late rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis: comparison with a mathematical model. (1/85)

OBJECTIVE: To establish a mathematical model to predict the probability of symmetry of joint involvement as a function of the number of joints involved and to compare expected with actual probabilities in psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and in early and late disease. METHODS: Random involvement of joints was assumed, and the binomial theorem was used to give the frequency distribution of involved joints as a function of each joint count. Ten joint pairs were included: shoulder, elbow, wrist, metacarpophalangeal joints, proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joints of the hands, hip, knee, ankle, metatarsophalangeal joints, and PIP joints of the feet. Observed probabilities were obtained from subjects with early (duration < or =12 months) and late PsA and RA. RESULTS: The number of subjects in each of the disease subgroups was as follows: early PsA n = 33, late PsA n = 77, early RA n = 61, late RA n = 93. Observed probabilities of symmetry exceeded predicted probabilities for all disease subgroups. The median number of involved joints in each group was as follows: early PsA 4, late PsA 8, early RA 8, late RA 15 (chi2 = 95.3, 3 degrees of freedom, P = 0.0001, by Kruskal-Wallis test). After correcting for the discrepancy in the number of involved joints, no difference in joint symmetry was found between the groups (chi2 = 1.77, P = 0.62 by Friedman two-way analysis of variance). Similar results were obtained when individual hand and foot joints were analyzed separately. CONCLUSION: The pattern of joint involvement is often used to distinguish between rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis. This study confirms that symmetry is largely a function of the total number of joints involved and that, in terms of joint pattern, differences between these disorders are more quantitative than qualitative. Both disorders have high absolute values of symmetry, particularly in the joints of the wrist and hand.  (+info)

Preliminary investigation of debridement of plantar callosities in rheumatoid arthritis. (2/85)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of expert debridement of foot callosities on forefoot pain and plantar pressure distribution in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: Plantar callosities on 14 feet of eight RA patients were debrided by a single podiatrist. Measurements of subjective pain severity in the forefoot and global arthritis pain were undertaken using a visual analogue scale, repeated at 7-day intervals to the next treatment (28 days). Plantar pressures were recorded at the lesion sites using an in-shoe flexible transducer insole before and after lesion debridement. RESULTS: Following debridement, all patients reported symptomatic relief with an average change in pain score of 48% (P = 0.01) but the treatment effect was lost by 7 days. Immediately following scalpel debridement, peak pressures were elevated in 10 of 14 feet, whilst contact time was reduced and peak force increased. None, however, reached statistical significance. CONCLUSION: Scalpel debridement of forefoot plantar callosities reduces forefoot pain for about 7 days, but pressure distribution is not significantly altered.  (+info)

Lymph draining from foot joints in rheumatoid arthritis provides insight into local cytokine and chemokine production and transport to lymph nodes. (3/85)

OBJECTIVE: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is characterized by inflammatory reactions in joints and adjacent tissues unaccompanied by clinically evident changes in lymphatics and lymph nodes draining the inflamed areas. The explanation for this phenomenon, which contrasts with infectious processes in joints and soft tissues that evoke major changes in the lymphatic system, is unclear. To determine which inflammatory factors produced in the joints of RA patients are transported in lymph to lymph nodes, we measured levels of immunoglobulins, cytokines, and chemokines in prenodal lymph from the foot joints of RA patients and quantified their rate of transport to regional lymph nodes. METHODS: Lymph was collected from the cannulated lymphatics draining the foot joints, tendons, fascia, and skin of 20 RA patients. Lymph flow rate and concentrations of proteins and immunoglobulins were measured. Cytokine and chemokine levels were quantified by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays. Results were compared with those obtained in 20 control subjects. RESULTS: In the cannulated vessel, the mean +/- SEM lymph flow rate in RA patients was almost 2-fold that in control subjects (22.6 +/- 3.2 ml/24 hours versus 13.2 +/- 1.1 ml/24 hours; P < 0.01). Lymph concentrations of total protein, IgG, and IgM were 1.80 +/- 0.14 gm/dl, 384 +/- 45 mg/dl, and 32.0 +/- 1.5 mg/dl, respectively, in RA patients and 1.66 +/- 0.14 gm/dl, 238 +/- 32 mg/dl, and 15.0 +/- 1.3 mg/dl, respectively, in control subjects. The corresponding lymph:serum (L:S) ratios were 0.21 +/- 0.02, 0.22 +/- 0.02, and 0.15 +/- 0.02, respectively, in RA patients and 0.22 +/- 0.02, 0.19 +/- 0.02, and 0.11 +/- 0.02, respectively, in control subjects. The L:S ratios of <1 and the absence of significant differences between groups suggested a lack of local production of immunoglobulins. In RA patients, lymph concentrations (in pg/ml) were as follows: interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) 14.8 +/- 3.9, IL-6 511 +/- 143, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha) 9.9 +/- 1.1, IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra) 4,274 +/- 737, IL-10 13.3 +/- 4.4, IL-8 846 +/- 174, IL-15 6.2 +/- 0.9, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) 2.30 +/- 0.15, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) 80.4 +/- 8.6, and macrophage inflammatory protein 1alpha (MIP-1alpha) 171 +/- 34. In control subjects, these values were as follows: IL-1beta 1.50 +/- 0.25, IL-6 79.0 +/- 14.6, TNFalpha 4.4 +/- 1.1, IL-1Ra 208 +/- 52, IL-10 0.0, IL-8 216 +/- 83, IL-15 5.00 +/- 0.45, GM-CSF 0.40 +/- 0.05, VEGF 42.0 +/- 2.4, and MIP-1alpha 3.4 +/- 1.7 (P < 0.05 versus RA patients for all except IL-15). The L:S ratio was >1 in all RA patient samples for IL-1beta, IL-6, IL-1Ra, IL-8, GM-CSF, IL-10, IL-15, TNFalpha, and MIP-1alpha, indicating local production of cytokines. Great variability in lymph cytokine concentrations, presumably reflecting differences in the intensity of local inflammation, was not reflected in serum cytokine concentrations. Intravenously infused methylprednisolone decreased lymph cytokine levels to normal within 12 hours. In contrast, their concentrations in serum showed little or no change. CONCLUSION: High lymph concentrations of cyto kines and chemokines, exceeding those in serum, were found in RA patients. The L:S concentration ratios of > 1 indicate the local production of these cytokines and chemokines in the inflamed tissues. High flow rates of lymph containing high cytokine concentrations through the regional lymph nodes are likely to affect node lymphocytes and dendritic cells. Analysis of cytokines in lymph should provide insight into events in inflamed tissues in RA and in regional lymph nodes.  (+info)

Mycobacterium kansasii arthritis of the foot in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus. (4/85)

Mycobacterium kansasii, an atypical Mycobacterium, may cause serious illness in humans. We describe a M. kansasii infection of the foot joint, which was diagnosed in a 46-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus. The diagnosis was based on a positive culture from degenerative tissue and histological diagnosis of a synovium. We reviewed the literature regarding M. kansasii infection of the joint, bone, and periarticular structures focusing on the complication of rheumatic diseases.  (+info)

The foot in chronic rheumatoid arthritis. (5/85)

The feet of 200 consecutive admissions with classical or definite rheumatoid arthritis were studied. 104 were found to have pain or deformity. Clinical involvement of the joints was seen more often than radiological joint damage in the ankle, but the reverse was the case in the midtarsal joints. The metatarsophalangeal joints were involved most frequently both clinically and radiologically. Sixty per cent of the patients required modified shoes but only a third of these had received them. The need for more shoes is clear, and although this is a highly selected group of patients they were all under specialist care. The increased expenditure on special footwear would benefit the patient, firstly by improving ambulation, and secondly perhaps by reducing the number of operations necessary. Hallux valgus was very common and occurred with similar frequency to disease in the other metatarsophalangeal joints. Although not exclusive to rheumatoid arthritis, hallux valgus must have been caused for the most part by the rheumatoid arthritis and if so, then it is suggested that the provision of suitable shoes for patients may be less costly than subsequent surgical treatment.  (+info)

Increased arthritis severity in mice coinfected with Borrelia burgdorferi and Babesia microti. (6/85)

Increased severity of disease and persistence of symptoms have been recently reported in some patients with simultaneous infection of Borrelia burgdorferi and Babesia microti in the northeastern and northern midwest United States. This study used a murine model to examine whether defined disease conditions such as arthritis and carditis differed in severity in mice infected solely with B. burgdorferi and in mice coinfected with B. microti and B. burgdorferi. C3H.HeJ and BALB/c mice cohorts were coinfected or singly infected and then monitored experimentally for 15 and 30 days after inoculation. Carditis and arthritis was determined by blinded histopathologic evaluation of myocardium and tibiotarsal joints. Cytokine measurements were made on lymph node and spleen supernatants for interferon-gamma, interleukin (IL)-4, IL-10, and IL-13. No differences were observed for C3H.HeJ mice cohorts; however, coinfected BALB/c mice had a significant increase in arthritis severity at day 30. This clinical observation was correlated with a significant reduction in expression of the cytokines IL-10 and IL-13.  (+info)

Jumping and kicking in bush crickets. (7/85)

Bush crickets have long, thin hind legs but jump and kick rapidly. The mechanisms underlying these fast movements were analysed by correlating the activity of femoral muscles in a hind leg with the movements of the legs and body captured in high-speed images. A female Pholidoptera griseoaptera weighing 600 mg can jump a horizontal distance of 300 mm from a takeoff angle of 34 degrees and at a velocity of 2.1 m s(-1), gaining 1350 microJ of kinetic energy. The body is accelerated at up to 114 m s(-2), and the tibiae of the hind legs extend fully within 30 ms at maximal rotational velocities of 13500 deg. s(-1). Such performance requires a minimal power output of 40 mW. Ruddering movements of the hind legs may contribute to the stability of the body once the insect is airborne. During kicking, a hind tibia is extended completely within 10 ms with rotational velocities three times higher at 41800 deg. s(-1). Before a kick, high-speed images show no distortions of the hind femoro-tibial joints or of the small semi-lunar groove in the distal femur. Both kicks and jumps can be generated without full flexion of the hind tibiae. Some kicks involve a brief, 40-90 ms, period of co-contraction between the extensor and flexor tibiae muscles, but others can be generated by contraction of the extensor without a preceding co-contraction with the flexor. In the latter kicks, the initial flexion of the tibia is generated by a burst of flexor spikes, which then stop before spikes occur in the fast extensor tibiae (FETi) motor neuron. The rapid extension of the tibia can follow directly upon these spikes or can be delayed by as long as 40 ms. The velocity of tibial movement is positively correlated with the number of FETi spikes. The hind legs are 1.5 times longer than the body and more than four times longer than the front legs. The mechanical advantage of the hind leg flexor muscle over the extensor is greater at flexed joint angles and is enhanced by a pad of tissue on its tendon that slides over a protuberance in the ventral wall of the distal femur. The balance of forces in the extensor and flexor muscles, coupled with their changing lever ratio at different joint positions, appears to determine the point of tibial release and to enable rapid movements without an obligatory co-contraction of the two muscles.  (+info)

Fracture dislocations of Lisfranc's joint treated with closed reduction and percutaneous fixation. (8/85)

We reviewed 42 patients (mean age 37.7+/-14.2 years) with closed fracture dislocations of Lisfranc's joint treated with percutaneous screw fixation. Mean follow-up was 58.4+/-17.3 months. The aim was to compare dislocations in which a perfect anatomical reduction had been reached with dislocations in which reduction was only near anatomical. The mean American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society score for all patients was 81.0+/-13.5. There were no significant differences in outcome scores between patients with perfect anatomical reduction and patients with near anatomical reduction. However, patients with combined fracture dislocations obtained statistically better scores than patients with pure dislocations.  (+info)

The calcaneocuboid joint is the joint between the calcaneus and the cuboid bone. The ligaments connecting the calcaneus with the cuboid are five in number, viz., the articular capsule: the dorsal calcaneocuboid ligament, part of the bifurcated ligament, the long plantar ligament, and the plantar calcaneocuboid ligament. The calcaneocuboid joint is conventionally described as among the least mobile joints in the human foot. The articular surfaces of the two bones are relatively flat with some irregular undulations, which seem to suggest movement limited to a single rotation and some translation. However, the cuboid rotates as much as 25° about an oblique axis during inversion-eversion in a movement that could be called obvolution-involution. This article incorporates text in the public domain from the 20th edition of Grays Anatomy (1918) Grays Anatomy (See infobox). Greiner & Ball 2008 Greiner, Thomas M; Ball, Kevin A (2008). The calcaneocuboid joint moves with three degrees of freedom. J ...
Subtle Lisfranc injuries are seen less often than high energy displaced Lisfranc injuries. They typically occur during athletic activity resulting from low-energy mechanisms. These injuries pose diagnostic and treatment challenges to the clinician. Therefore, one must have a high index of suspicion for an unstable Lisfranc injury when the diagnosis of a mid-foot sprain is made. Appropriate diagnostic work up with weight-bearing radiographs and other studies, if needed, must follow. Treatment of an unstable subtle Lisfranc injury requires open reduction and stable fixation for the best long-term results. When the diagnosis is missed, leading to inappropriate treatment, outcomes are poor. This article will focus on diagnosis and management of subtle Lisfranc injuries, proximal variants, and the use of bridge plating as an option for surgical stabilization ...

Introduction: Lisfranc injuries are often difficult to diagnose and treat causing long term disability without proper management. Lisfranc injuries refer to bony or ligamentous compromise of the tarsometatarsal and intercuneiform joint complex. Improper treatment of these fractures might lead to negative outcomes such as soft tissue necrosis, posttraumatic arthritis and arch abnormalities. This study aims to help in diagnosis and treatment of tarsometatarsal Lisfranc injuries.. Materials and Methods: Study comprises of 10 patients diagnosed with Lisfranc injury. All of them were treated with open reduction and internal fixation. Post-operatively, all patients were assessed using AOFAS midfoot scale for outcome after the surgery and scores were recorded at each follow up and final results were evaluated after 1 year of surgery.. Observation and Results: Mean AOFAS midfoot score was 82 at the end of one year. Majority of the patients had AOFAS score of more than 80. Majority of patients had B2 ...
The midtarsal joint (MTJt) consists of the combined articulations of the talonvicular and calcaneocuboid joints and represent the functional articulation between the rearfoot (talus and calcaneus) and the midfoot (navicular and cuboid). The movement of the transverse tarsal region has been described as a segment rotating around two distinct axes of the MTJt; the longitudinal and the oblique. Recent research has suggested that the two axes model of the MTJt is a theory of convenience to explain clinical observation, and that the MTJt moves in a more complex manner. It has been hypothesised that the MTJt has one triplanar axis of motion, so there remains the need to investigate the practical application of this understanding in terms of how this motion affects the MTJt in gait and the implications this may have on podiatric treatment ...

Emphasizing fundamental biomechanical principles, these authors discuss comprehensive evaluation and management of midtarsal joint pathology, including salient anatomical insights, key orthotic considerations and practical treatment applications.
Anyone who has symptoms of a Lisfranc injury should see a foot and ankle surgeon right away. If unable to do so immediately, it is important to stay off the injured foot, keep it elevated (at or slightly above hip level), and apply a bag of ice wrapped in a thin towel to the area every 20 minutes of each waking hour. These steps will help keep the swelling and pain under control. Treatment by the foot and ankle surgeon may include one or more of the following, depending on the type and severity of the Lisfranc injury:. ...
Tarsal coalitions (TC) are defined as fibrous (beyond normal ligaments), cartilaginous, or osseous unions of at least two tarsal bones. Most of the clinical studies report the prevalence of TC as ,1%, but they disregard the asymptomatic coalitions. Because TC have been associated with pathologic conditions, including degenerative arthritic changes, knowledge of their prevalence has clinical importance. The aim of our study was to establish the prevalence of TC and tarsal joint variants. A total of 114 feet from 62 cadavers (average age = 78 years) without obvious foot pathologies were dissected at the Department of Anatomical Sciences, The University of Adelaide. Ten non-osseous TC in eight subjects were identified: two talocalcaneal and eight calcaneonavicular (occurred twice bilaterally). Variant calcaneonavicular and cuboideonavicular joints were found in 8% and 31% of feet, respectively. Other joint variants included a variable number of talocalcaneal joint surfaces and sesamoid bones. No ...

Little information on quantitative sagittal plane postural alignment and evolution in children exists. The objectives of this study are to document the evolution of upright, static, sagittal posture in children and to identify possible critical phases of postural evolution (maturation). A total of 1084 children (aged 4-12 years) received a sagittal postural evaluation with the Biotonix postural analysis system. Data were retrieved from the Biotonix internet database. Children were stratified and analyzed by years of age with n = 36 in the youngest age group (4 years) and n = 184 in the oldest age group (12 years). Children were analyzed in the neutral upright posture. Variables measured were sagittal translation distances in millimeters of: the knee relative to the tarsal joint, pelvis relative to the tarsal joint, shoulder relative to the tarsal joint, and head relative to the tarsal joint. A two-way factorial ANOVA was used to test for age and gender effects on posture, while polynomial trend analyses
Lisfranc injuries are a spectrum of injuries to the tarsometatarsal joint complex of the midfoot. These range from subtle ligamentous sprains, often seen in athletes, to fracture dislocations seen in
Musculoskeletal trauma to the foot is a common presentation to EDs. A Lisfranc fracture dislocation involves injury to the bony and soft tissue structures of the tarsometatarsal joint. While it is most commonly seen post high velocity trauma, it can also present post minor trauma. It is also misdiagnosed in approximately 20% of cases. These Lisfranc injuries typically present to EDs with pain particularly with weight bearing, swelling and post a characteristic mechanism of injury. Diagnosis is via clinical examination and radiological investigation-typically plain radiographs and CTs. Once diagnosed, Lisfranc injuries can be classified as stable or unstable. Stable injuries can be immobilised in EDs and discharged home. Unstable injuries require an orthopaedic referral for consideration of surgical fixation. ...
One physiological method for estimating the motor unit number in a muscle depends on dividing into the maximum compound muscle action potential, the potential average of the first few motor unit potentials excited by a motor nerve stimulus above motor threshold. To be valid, such an average unit potential size must be representative of the whole motor unit population. This assumption may not be justified. The present study has shown that there are single motor units in healthy and abnormal, thenar, and EDB motor unit populations, many times larger than any motor unit excited close to the motor threshold. This finding suggests that previously reported motor unit estimates may not only be an overestimate of the true motor unit population number, but have excluded much larger motor units with higher thresholds. Low motor unit estimates in neuropathies may result from a change in the order of activation of motor units with the appearance of larger motor units, normally of higher threshold among the ...
Lisfranc joint injuries are rare, complex and often misdiagnosed. Typical signs and symptoms include pain, swelling and the inability to bear weight. Clinically, these injuries vary from mild sprains to fracture-dislocations. On physical examination, swelling is found primarily over the midfoot region. Pain is elicited with palpation along the tarsometatarsal articulations, and force applied to this area may elicit medial or lateral pain. Radiographs showing diastasis of the normal architecture confirm the presence of a severe sprain and possible dislocation. Negative standard and weight-bearing radiographs do not rule out a mild (grade I) or moderate (grade II) sprain. Reevaluation may be necessary if pain and swelling continue for 10 days after the injury. Proper treatment of a mild to moderate Lisfranc injury improves the chance of successful healing and reduces the likelihood of complications. Patients with fractures and fracture-dislocations should be referred for surgical ...
What is a Lisfranc Injury? Lisfranc injuries affect the midfoot region and can range from a sprain, to a fracture, to a dislocation. Some Lisfranc injuries will result in broken bones, while others may only affect the joints and ligaments. Lisfranc injuries were originally discovered when soldiers fell from their horses with their foot caught in ...
In a high energy injury to the midfoot, such as a fall from a height or a motor vehicle accident, the diagnosis of a Lisfranc injury should, in theory at least, pose less of a challenge. There will be deformity of the midfoot and X-ray abnormalities should be obvious. Further, the nature of the injury will create heightened clinical suspicion and there may even be disruption of the overlying skin and compromise of the blood supply. Typical X-ray findings would include a gap between the base of the first and second toes.[8] The diagnosis becomes more challenging in the case of low energy incidents, such as might occur with a twisting injury on the racquetball court, or when an American Football lineman is forced back upon a foot that is already in a fully plantar flexed position. Then, there may only be complaint of inability to bear weight and some mild swelling of the forefoot or midfoot. Bruising of the arch has been described as diagnostic in these circumstances but may well be absent.[9] ...

Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) with transarticular screws to stabilize Lisfranc injuries may increase the risk of arthritis or affect outcomes
Some joints seem to get all the attention. The ankle joint, for instance, is forever being coddled by bandage strips and ice packs. Even the big toe joint has its fair share of groupies. But who ever stops to think about the Lisfranc joint? Of the more than 30 joints in the foot, the Lisfranc joint is hardly the most well-known. It would be hard-pressed to be considered a household name. And yet, problems with this joint can be just as disruptive as injuries to other joints. (So take that, smug ankle joint.). The Lisfranc joint is located at the point where the metatarsals (the long, thin bones that connect to the bottoms of the toes) meet the tarsals (squat, squarish bones that make up the arch of the foot and the midfoot). Additionally, there are ligaments that connect these bones together and keep them properly aligned.. Injuries to the Lisfranc joint usually happen to people involved in car accidents, people in the military, athletes (runners, football players, horseback riders, etc.), those ...
A series of three principal joints allow for most of the movement that occurs in the region of the ankle. These are complex joints with strong ligaments between the articulating bones. From proximal to distal these joints are the ankle or talocrural joint, subtalar or talocalcaneal joint, and the transverse tarsal joint. The last two joints mentioned are intertarsal joints within the foot proper, while the first joint is the joint between the leg skeleton and foot skeleton. Like the hand, the foot also has joints associated with the digits ...

Victor Dubois-Ferrière,Anne Lübbeke, Ashwin Chowdhary, Richard Stern, Dennis Dominguez,Mathieu Assal. Background: Injuries to the tarsometatarsal (TMT) joint complex, or Lisfranc injuries, have been reported to result in osteoarthritis (OA) following surgical treatment. Good outcomes with respect to short and medium-term results have been reported. However, long-term results, specifically regarding clinical outcomes and the development of symptomatic OA, are limited. The objectives of this study were to assess clinical outcomes, the occurrence of symptomatic OA, and risk factors for OA at 2 to 24 years after a Lisfranc injury treated surgically with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) or with primary arthrodesis ...
Choparts fracture-dislocation is a dislocation of the mid-tarsal (talonavicular and calcaneocuboid) joints of the foot, often with associated fractures of the calcaneus, cuboid and navicular. Choparts fracture-dislocation is usually caused by falls from height, traffic collisions and twisting injuries to the foot as seen in basketball players. The foot is usually dislocated medially (80%) and superiorly, which occurs when the foot is plantar flexed and inverted. Lateral displacement occurs during eversion injuries. Associated fractures of calcaneus, cuboid and navicular are frequent. Open fractures occur in a small percentage. Diagnosis is made on plain radiograph of the foot, although the extent of injury is often underestimated. Treatment comprises early reduction of the dislocation, and frequently involves open reduction internal fixation to restore and stabilise the talonavicular joint. Open reduction and fusion of the calcaneocuboid joint is occasionally required. With prompt treatment, ...

Your Lisfranc joint, also known as the tarsometatarsal joint, lies within your midfoot area as part of a bone cluster that makes up the arch along the top part of your foot. The joint plays a role in transferring force between your midfoot and forefoot area. Common symptoms of a fracture or dislocation include ...
U-Shaped portion surrounds sore callus and reduces pain by transferring pressure from callus to the cushion. Soft orthotics cushion the ball and arches of the feet and protect them from injury and pain, while rigid orthotics correct abnormal foot angles and movements that can cause or worsen pain in the ball of the foot. Many insoles fit inside of slippers so that people suffering from pain in the ball of the foot can walk more comfortably inside their homes as well as outside. In addition, some insoles include added deodorizers to help decrease foot odor. While gel or foam insoles are sold at pharmacies, grocery stores and sporting-goods stores, orthotics require a visit to a podiatrist, who will make a cast of the foot and build a custom-fit insole from the cast. Foam, gel and soft orthotics require replacement once a year or more as the cushioning wears out. Rigid orthotics rarely need replacement. Hip bone spur can cause a lot of discomfort ...

The Ottawa foot rules recommend a radiographic series of the foot if there is bony tenderness at the base of the fifth metatarsal or over the tarsal navicular and the inability to take four steps both immediately and in the emergency department.1 These rules apply to just the midfoot. Routine radiographs of the foot include the anteroposterior (AP), oblique, and lateral views (Fig. 23-3). These radiographs can be difficult to interpret because bones overlap in all projections. The AP radiograph is used to best assess the medial two tarsometatarsal joints, whereas the oblique image provides the best view of the lateral three tarsometatarsal joints.2 This alignment is important and will be altered in patients with Lisfranc fracture-dislocations. The lateral radiograph is best for detecting calcaneus fractures. Advanced imaging will be required with certain injuries and conditions. ...

Introduction: Lisfranc joint injuries are the most common injuries of the midfoot. Injuries include (1) pure Lisfranc joint dislocations, (2) Lisfranc joint fracture disl..
A support arranged for disposition within a shoe, boot or sandal, to raise the arch of the foot by everting the forefoot and inverting the rearfoot, thereby locking the midtarsal joint. The support basically comprises a base portion and a wedge portion. The base portion has an upper surface on which the wedge portion is disposed. The wedge portion includes a medial side edge and a lateral side edge and extends from the base of all five metatarsals of the persons foot to the heads of all five metatarsals. The wedge portion tapers in thickness from at least the midline of the wedge portion to the medial side edge. The wedge portion includes an anterior portion that is tapered to the sulcus section of the wearers foot.
Lisfranc injuries result if bones in the midfoot are broken or ligaments that support the midfoot are torn - learn the common symptoms and treatment.
This thesis concerns the analysis of dynamical systems suitable to be modelled by piecewise-smooth differential equations. In such systems the continuous-in-time dynamics is interrupted by discrete-in-time jumps in the state or governing equations of motion. Not only can this framework be used to describe existing systems with strong nonlinear behaviour such as impacts and friction, but the non-smooth properties can be exploited to design new mechanical devices. As suggested in this work it opens up the possibility of, for example, fast limit switches and energy transfer mechanisms.. Particularly, the dynamics at the onset of low-velocity impacts in systems with recurrent dynamics, so called grazing bifurcations in impact-oscillators, are investigated. As previous work has shown, low-velocity impacts is a strong source of instability to the dynamics, and efforts to control the behaviour is of importance. This problem is approached in two ways in this work. One is to investigate the influence of ...

Post-traumatic arthritis following a Lisfranc complex injury is a common occurrence. Although the injury itself predisposes to this complication, popular fixation modes using transarticular screw stabilization result in iatrogenic damage to the joint and results in another possible mechanism of post-traumatic DJD. This complication often results in the need for tarsal metatarsal joint fusion as the definitive treatment.. This case involved a 32-year-old male status post motocross injury. Three years earlier he was treated with an ORIF of his Lisfranc injury using transarticular screws. Patient has continued to have pain. Radiographs suggested, and CT scan confirmed post traumatic degenerative changes.. Treatment consisted of hardware removal and fusion of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd TMT articulations. Fusion preparation consisted of meticulous joint preparation along with the addition of StimuBlast® DBM mixed with bone marrow concentrate with the Arthrex Angel® system. Fixation was obtained using ...
The ostrich (Struthio camelus) is the largest extant biped. Being flightless, it exhibits advanced cursorial abilities primarily evident in its characteristic speed and endurance. In addition to the active musculoskeletal complex, its powerful pelvic limbs incorporate passive structures wherein ligaments interact with joint surfaces, cartilage and other connective tissue in their course of motion. This arrangement may enable energy conservation by providing joint stabilisation, optimised limb segment orientation and automated positioning of ground contact elements independently of direct muscle control.. The intertarsal joint is of particular interest considering its position near the mid-point of the extended limb and its exposure to high load during stance with significant inertial forces during swing phase. Functional-anatomical analysis of the dissected isolated joint describes the interaction of ligaments with intertarsal joint contours through the full motion cycle. Manual manipulation ...
This study evaluated the 3D angle between the joint moment and the joint angular velocity vectors at the intrinsic foot joints, and investigated if these joints are predominantly driven or stabilized during gait. The participants were 20 asymptomatic subjects. A four-segment kinetic foot model was used to calculate and estimate intrinsic foot joint moments, powers and angular velocities during gait. 3D angles between the joint moment and the joint angular velocity vectors were calculated for the intrinsic foot joints defined as follows: ankle joint motion described between the foot and the shank for the one-segment foot model (hereafter referred as Ankle), and between the calcaneus and the shank for the multi-segment foot model (hereafter referred as Shank-Calcaneus); joint motion described between calcaneus and midfoot segments (hereafter referred as Chopart joint); joint motion described between midfoot and metatarsus segments (hereafter referred as Lisfranc joint); joint motion described between
In modern times, a Lisfranc injury indicates an injury to the normal alignment of the cuneiforms and metatarsal joints with the loss of their normal spatial relationships.. The most common injury to the Lisfranc joint occurs at the joint involving the 1st and 2nd metatarsals and the medial cuneiform. If the ligaments between the medial and mid cuneiforms are disrupted, or between the 1st, 2nd mt and the medial cuneiform, then the bones separate and the normal alignment of the joints is lost.. Figure 3: Abnormal AP xray of right foot. The red circle represents the Lisfranc joint between the 1st and 2nd metatarsals and the medial cuneiform bone. Notice the abnormally large space (outlined by red line) between the two metatarsal bones (compare to Figures 1 & 2) which indicates that the ligament complex has been torn allowing for the bones of the Lisfranc joint to begin to dislocate (sublux).. When recognized, this injury may be treated surgically and has a much better prognosis then when it is not ...

Prior to radiographic assessment, one needs to be familiar with the normal ossification centers and accessory bones in the pediatric foot. The initial workup for a suspected calcaneus fracture involves anterior posterior (AP), lateral and an axial view. The AP view allows assessment of the talonavicular and the calcaneocuboid joints. The posterior facet can be seen on the lateral and Bohlers angle is measured on this view. Bohlers angle is the angle between a line drawn between the highest points of the anterior and posterior facets and a line drawn tangential to the highest point on the calcaneal tuberosity. The normal value in adults is between 20 and 40 degrees. It is typically less in children ...
OBJECTIVES: In patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the talonavicular joint is commonly involved and midfoot collapse can lead to progressive flattening of the arch. Despite a general awareness of the important structural role of the talonavicular joint in rheumatoid foot disease, details of its destructive pattern has not been elucidated. METHODS: We cross-sectionally investigated 176 RA patients (342 feet) and classified their feet into the following five groups according to radiographic findings: arthritis; (RA changes with normal navicular shape), Müller-Weiss Disease (MWD); (collapse of the lateral aspect of the tarsal navicular), flat; (flattened navicular), ankylosis; (ankylosis of the talonavicular joint), and normal ...

Objectives: The aim of this pilot study was to compare clinical examination (CE) and ultrasound (US) with high field MRI (as the reference standard) for the detection of rearfoot and midtarsal joint synovitis and secondly tenosynovitis of the ankle tendons in patients with established RA.. Methods: Patients with RA (modified ACR criteria) with symptoms of mid- and rearfoot disease were recruited. Demographic data were collected. All underwent CE, US and high field MRI (with iv gadolinium contrast) of their right foot. Percentage exact agreement (PEA), sensitivity and specificity were calculated for CE and US when compared to MRI. Inter-reader reliability for CE and US was also assessed.. Results: Compared to the gold standard of MRI, for CE (joint synovitis) the ranges for sensitivity, specificity and PEA were 55-83%, 23-46% and 46-60%, and for US were 64-89%, 60-80% and 64-78%. Compared to the gold standard of MRI, for CE (tenosynovitis) the ranges for sensitivity, specificity and PEA were ...

Results Six cryopreserved intact ankle-foot specimens from three male and three female cadavers (two right and four left), with a mean age of 74 years (range, 66-80 years) were studied. A recommended list of standardized scanning technique which allows sonographers to evaluate both compartments of the subtalar joint (ASTJ and PSTJ) from the medial, lateral and posterior aspect were developed. All of the specimens (6/6, 100%) contained the appropriate colored latex in the appropriate subtalar joint compartment with minimal leakage into the surrounding soft tissues (Figure 1). Of note, five of the six (5/6, 83%) specimens revealed communication between the PSTJ and the posterior tibiotalar joint. There was no communication between the ASTJ and the tibiotalar joint, nor was there evidence of spread of the latex, i.e. communication, from one subtalar joint compartment to the other. ...

Miniplates (titanium) are standard of care in humans and are becoming more common in small animals.5 Veterinary cuttable plates can also be used. They are useful for buttressing bone defects and the thin thread pitch of their screws provides adequate purchase in the thin bone.1 Their small size and number of screw holes per unit length means screws can be placed between tooth roots. Screws can additionally be angled. If non-locking plates are used, accurate contouring is required or screw tightening will result in a shift in the planned construct and an occlusion abnormality. Principles of miniplate fixation are similar to wiring - two plates are required in the mandible. A plate is placed along the alveolar surface to resist bending and act as a tension band. A secondary plate is required on the ventral surface to resist shear and rotation.1 A larger plate can be used for the ventral plate if large loads or buttressing requires a stronger construct.. Postoperative care includes feeding soft ...

Introduction: Chronic inflammation is widely recognized as an underlying etiological factor in carcinogenesis; there is enough evidence to support the use of non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and more importantly, their chemically‐modified NO‐releasing prodrugs (NO‐NSAIDs) as promising chemopreventive agents. Metabolic activation of organic nitrate‐containing NO‐aspirins may lead to a cytotoxic activated linker (a quinone methide), raising safety concerns. Replacement of organic nitrates with N‐diazeniumdiolates as a second‐generation NONO‐NSAIDs allowed us to conduct a head‐to‐head comparison between NCX‐4016 (NO‐aspirin), CVM‐01 (NONO‐aspirin), and aspirin as analgesic, anti‐inflammatory, and anti‐pyretic agents with no significant gastrointestinal toxicity.. Methods: a) Anti‐inflammatory: paw edema induced by intraplantar injection of 100 µL of 1% carrageenan, paw volumes measured up to the tibiotarsal joint immediately prior to ...
October 16, 2002. American Ballet Theatre is one of the most spectacular dance companies in the world. ABT was founded in 1940 and tours the United States annually, performing for over 600,000 people. It has made more than 15 international tours to 42 countries and is often sponsored by the State Department of the United States. From 1940 to 1980 ABT was directed by Lucia Chase and Oliver Smith. Its original aim was to encourage the creation of new choreographed works and to develop a superb repertoire of ballets, including full-length ballets. Its repertoire has been realized, with the presentation, over the years, of all the great full-length ballets, such as Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty. Its repertoire also includes early 20th Century works, such as Les Sylphides and Rodeo, and late 20th Century works, such as Airs and Push Comes to Shove. In 1980, Mikhail Baryshnikov became Artistic Director, followed in 1990 by Jane Hermann and Oliver Smith. Kevin McKenzie, named Artistic Director in 1992, ...

Bionicare is a new, non-invasive therapy (FDA approved) for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee and rheumatoid arthritis of the hand. A wrap is placed on the affected site and attached to a small battery-powered transmitter for six to eight hours every day. The transmitter sends an electrical signal to the hyaline cartilage cells in your joint. This signal has been shown in animals to stimulate the cells to regenerate the cartilage and reduce the inflammatory enzymes that cause pain and stiffness in joints.

In a word, I think the audition process youre about to face is just a little bit ridiculous. The single most important factor that will determine whether your daughter embarks on a professional ballet career is an overriding desire to dance and a willingness to work hard for it. Most eight-year-olds dont know what they want to do with their lives, making this factor impossible to assess at age 8.,P,Ballet academies naturally want to accept students who will go on to make fine professional dancers.

At SAB (School of American Ballet, maybe the top ballet academy in America), for example, very few of the students who enter at age 8 go on to professional careers with NYC Ballet. Most SAB students who go on to NYC Ballet trained elsewhere for many years, and then attended SAB during high school.,P,In the face of this reality, I think it makes sense for ballet academies to accept as many students as possible at an early age. ...
