Bilateral vertebral artery occlusion following cervical spine trauma--case report. (1/271)

A 41-year-old female presented with a rare case of bilateral vertebral artery occlusion following C5-6 cervical spine subluxation after a fall of 30 feet. Digital subtraction angiography showed occlusion of the bilateral vertebral arteries. Unlocking of the facet joint, posterior wiring with iliac crest grafting, and anterior fusion were performed. The patient died on the 3rd day after the operation. This type of injury has a grim prognosis with less than a third of the patients achieving a good outcome.  (+info)

Separation of propulsive and adhesive traction stresses in locomoting keratocytes. (2/271)

Strong, actomyosin-dependent, pinching tractions in steadily locomoting (gliding) fish keratocytes revealed by traction imaging present a paradox, since only forces perpendicular to the direction of locomotion are apparent, leaving the actual propulsive forces unresolved. When keratocytes become transiently "stuck" by their trailing edge and adopt a fibroblast-like morphology, the tractions opposing locomotion are concentrated into the tail, leaving the active pinching and propulsive tractions clearly visible under the cell body. Stuck keratocytes can develop approximately 1 mdyn (10,000 pN) total propulsive thrust, originating in the wings of the cell. The leading lamella develops no detectable propulsive traction, even when the cell pulls on its transient tail anchorage. The separation of propulsive and adhesive tractions in the stuck phenotype leads to a mechanically consistent hypothesis that resolves the traction paradox for gliding keratocytes: the propulsive tractions driving locomotion are normally canceled by adhesive tractions resisting locomotion, leaving only the pinching tractions as a resultant. The resolution of the traction pattern into its components specifies conditions to be met for models of cytoskeletal force production, such as the dynamic network contraction model (Svitkina, T.M., A.B. Verkhovsky, K.M. McQuade, and G.G. Borisy. 1997. J. Cell Biol. 139:397-415). The traction pattern associated with cells undergoing sharp turns differs markedly from the normal pinching traction pattern, and can be accounted for by postulating an asymmetry in contractile activity of the opposed lateral wings of the cell.  (+info)

Successful conservative treatment of rheumatoid subaxial subluxation resulting in improvement of myelopathy, reduction of subluxation, and stabilisation of the cervical spine. A report of two cases. (3/271)

OBJECTIVE: To report the efficacy of conservative treatment with cervical traction and immobilisation with a Halo vest, in two consecutive rheumatoid arthritis patients with progressive cervical myelopathy caused by subaxial subluxation. METHODS: Description of neurological symptoms and signs and findings in plain radiography (PR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine before and after treatment of the subaxial subluxation by traction and immobilisation with a Halo vest during four months. RESULTS: During four months of traction and immobilisation neurological examination showed a considerable improvement of the signs and symptoms of cervical myelopathy. Afterwards PR and MRI of the cervical spine showed reduction of the subaxial subluxation. Eventually firm stabilisation was obtained in both patients without surgery of the cervical spine. CONCLUSION: Cervical traction and immobilisation with a Halo vest can be considered as an independent conservative treatment in rheumatoid arthritis patients with cervical myelopathy caused by subaxial subluxation.  (+info)

Halo femoral traction and sliding rods in the treatment of a neurologically compromised congenital scoliosis: technique. (4/271)

In severe congenital scoliosis, traction (whether with a halo or instrumental) is known to expose patients to neurologic complications. However, patients with restrictive lung disease may benefit from halo traction during the course of the surgical treatment. The goal of treatment of such deformities is, therefore, twofold: improvement of the respiratory function and avoidance of any neurologic complications. We report our technique to treat a 17-year-old girl with a multi-operated congenital scoliosis of 145 degrees and cor pulmonale. Pre-operative halo gravity traction improved her vital capacity from 560 c.c. to 700 c.c., but led to mild neurologic symptoms (clonus in the legs). To avoid further neurologic compromise, her first surgery consisted of posterior osteotomies and the implantation of two sliding rods connected to loose dominoes without any attempt at correction. Correction was then achieved over a 3-week period with a halofemoral traction. This allowed the two rods to slide while the neurologic status of the patient was monitored. Her definitive surgery consisted of locking the dominoes and the application of a contralateral rod. Satisfactory outcome was achieved for both correction of the deformity (without neurologic sequels) and improvement of her pulmonary function (1200 c.c. at 2 years). This technique using sliding rods in combination with halofemoral traction can be useful in high-risk, very severe congenital scoliosis.  (+info)

Joint distraction in treatment of osteoarthritis (II): effects on cartilage in a canine model. (5/271)

OBJECTIVE: From a clinical point of view, joint distraction as a treatment for osteoarthritis (OA) of hip and ankle has been demonstrated to be very promising. Pain, joint mobility and functional ability, the most important factors for a patient with severe OA, all improved. Although radiographic joint space enlargement in a significant number of patients suggested cartilage repair, actual cartilage repair remains difficult to evaluate. Therefore the present study was initiated to evaluate the actual effects of joint distraction on cartilage. METHODS: For this purpose a canine model for OA, anterior cruciate ligament transection (ACLT) was used. Sixteen weeks after ACLT articulating Ilizarov joint distraction of the knee was carried out. Absence of mechanical contact between articular surfaces and presence of intra-articular intermittent fluid pressure, characteristics of Ilizarov joint distraction, were confirmed. Twenty-five weeks after ACLT joint tissue of the dogs was analyzed. RESULTS: Biochemical analysis showed that after joint distraction the abnormal cartilage proteoglycan (PG) metabolism, characteristic for OA, had changed to a level found in control joints. Moreover, a mild degree of inflammation, present after ACLT, was reduced upon joint distraction. PG-content and histological cartilage degeneration had not (yet) improved within the time of treatment. DISCUSSION: Results suggest that the promising clinical results of Ilizarov joint distraction in patients with OA are accompanied by changes in cartilage metabolism. A change in proteoglycan turnover, indicating normalization of overall chondrocyte function, might in the long term, with normal joint use, lead to actual repair of cartilage.  (+info)

The treatment of femoral shaft fractures in children: a systematic overview and critical appraisal of the literature. (7/271)

OBJECTIVE: Through a critical systematic overview of the literature on the treatment of pediatric femoral shaft fractures to determine if any method of treatment can be recommended over others. DATA SOURCES: A MEDLINE search was performed for all cohort and randomized clinical trials for the years 1966 to 1996. STUDY SELECTION: Of 1217 identified articles, 15 cohort studies (where 2 or more treatments were compared in the same study) reported the treatment of children with femoral fractures. DATA EXTRACTION: Information was abstracted and articles rated for quality blind to author, institution and journal. DATA SYNTHESIS: Children having early application of a hip spica cast had an average hospital stay of 11 days (range from 5 to 29 days), average charges of $5784 (range from $590 to $11,800), average rates of limb-length discrepancy (greater than 2 cm) of 3% (range from 0 to 25%), angulatory malunion rates (greater than 10 degrees) of 8% (range from 0 to 19%), and rotational malunion rates (greater than 10 degrees) of 13% (range from 0 to 5%). The costs and malunion rates of early application of a hip spica cast were lower than for traction. Internal fixation (including intramedullary nails) had low angulatory malunion rates compared with early application of a hip spica cast but higher over-lengthening rates (greater than 2 cm) of 25% (range from 5% to 100%) and mean rotational malunion rates (greater than 10 degrees) of 25% (range from 11% to 32%). CONCLUSION: Early application of a hip spica cast had lower costs and malunion rates than traction.  (+info)

Soft-tissue interposition after closed reduction in developmental dysplasia of the hip. The long-term effect on acetabular development and avascular necrosis. (8/271)

We reviewed 98 children (133 hips) with developmental dysplasia of the hip who underwent arthrography immediately after closed reduction by overhead traction. We followed the patients to skeletal maturity to investigate whether soft-tissue interposition influences acetabular development and avascular necrosis over the long term. The shape of the limbus and the thickness of the soft-tissue interposition at the acetabular floor, as shown on arthrograms at the time of reduction, were not directly related to the final radiological results or to the incidence of avascular necrosis. Even if marked soft-tissue interposition was found on the initial arthrogram, spontaneous disappearance was noted in 71% up to the age of five years. The final radiological results showed no difference between those in which the interposition disappeared and those with none at the time of closed reduction. However, the requirement for secondary surgery at the age of five years was significantly higher in those with more than 3.5 mm of soft-tissue interposition. In the no-disappearance group (group C) further operation was necessary in 100% and the results were significantly worse at maturity according to Severin's classification. We suggest that the indications for open reduction should not be based solely on the arthrographic findings at the time of closed reduction.  (+info)

Objective: To determine the efficacy in treatment of vertically unstable sacral fractures with pelvic external fixation and skeletal traction. Patients and Methods: The pelvic external fixation and skeletal traction were applied on 12 cases of vertically unstable sacral fracture (eight males and four females, at age of 19 - 52 years, mean 35.2 years) including two cases of Denis Zone I, nine of Zone II, and one of Zone III. All patients were treated with the pelvic external fixation, and pre- and post-operational longitudinal skeletal traction. Results: The mean operation time, skeletal traction time, skeletal traction removal time and full weight bearing time were 38 min, 4.5 weeks, 8.5 weeks, and 10.3 weeks respectively. All these patients were followed up for 12 - 36 months (average, 22.5 months), which showed no associated complication. The function results were rated as excellent in four cases, good in six and fair in two, with a mean score of 84.4 points, according to Majeed scoring system.

Diaphyseal femur fractures are a common occurrence in busy level one trauma centers and even in the age of damage control orthopaedics most of these fractures are fixed definitively within 24 hours. The historical method of temporizing these fractures has been to place a distal femoral or proximal tibial skeletal traction pin. However, in the pediatric population skeletal traction is not utilized due to concern for physeal injury and cutaneous traction has been the gold standard for decades. Reasons for skeletal traction in adults are not well defined and there are no clinical studies showing that skeletal traction provides better outcomes in time of reduction in the operating theater or better pain control than cutaneous traction. With the ever increasing amount of high energy trauma seen by junior residents in the emergency department time constraints have become a large factor in patient care. Long delays for sedation and equipment procurement make stabilizing a diaphyseal femur fracture a ...

For people with hip fractures, traction involves either using tapes (skin traction) or pins (skeletal traction) attached to the injured leg and connected to weights via a pulley. The application of traction before surgery is thought to relieve pain and make the subsequent surgery easier. Where traction is not used, the injured limb is usually placed on a pillow and the patient encouraged to adopt a position of greatest comfort.. This review summarising the evidence from randomised controlled trials included 11 trials with 1654 participants. Consistent with the general hip fracture population, most of the trial participants were older persons of around 80 years of age and the majority were female. Ten trials compared traction versus no traction and two trials, including one of the preceding 10 trials, compared skin and skeletal traction. As well as limitations in the trial methods, there were very limited data for pooling and a lack of information about the longer-term consequences of applying or ...

Traction is rarely used in diagnostic and more frequently used in therapy (mostly together with repositioning of the skull and then halo fixation).. Traction basically pulls your head from your spine which relieves the intervertebral discs, nerves and other structures that might be compressed. With simultaneous repositioning it is ensured that the structures will continue to be relieved. Thats why often the cervical spine is then fixed in that correct position.. CAUTION! Excessive traction can cause additional damage, especially with already stretched ligaments. Do not use online available self therapy traction devices!. Note: Were NOT talking about traction therapy like sling tables. This should be avoided with c-spine instabilities.. Traction as diagnostic test is rarely used and as therapy it should only be performed by specialists and in combination with other therapies such as the application of a halo..

We reviewed the evidence on the effect of traction on pain intensity, ability to perform normal daily activities, overall improvement and return to work among people with low back pain (LBP) in the acute (less than four weeks duration), subacute (from four to 12 weeks duration) or chronic (more than 12 weeks duration) phase. Some patients also had sciatica. We examined the effects of traction immediately after the traction session, in the short-term (up to three months after traction) and in the long-term (around one year after traction).. LBP is a major health problem around the world and is a major cause of medical expenses, absenteeism and disability. One treatment option for LBP that has been used for thousands of years is traction, the application of a force that draws two adjacent bones apart from each other in order to increase their shared joint space. Various types of traction are used, often in combination with other treatments. The most commonly used traction techniques are ...

Home traction units are a great option for patients with chronic neck and back pain, headaches, muscle tension and other cervical spine problems. Often the use of these home traction units can actually prevent the need for surgical procedures or allow the patient to try alternative types of treatment options while staying pain and discomfort free.
Adhesion between vehicle wheels and rail is dictated by top of rail surface conditions/contamination. We have developed the TGA3 to be capable of distributing approved traction enhancing materials directly to the position on the rail where they are required. It is specifically configured to distribute L.B. Foster traction enhancer ALLEVIATE.. The deployment of traction enhancing material can be both a seasonal and all year round requirement. In the autumn, loss of traction results from seasonal leaf fall with the leaves covering the running rails creating a slippery surface. Throughout the year there are certain areas of track where traction is an issue; for example, wet rail phenomenon or where vehicles have to travel up inclines. Loss of adhesion results in braking and traction problems, which in turn lead to potential signal failures (loss of track circuit detection), station overruns and insufficient traction on inclines. The result being train delays, operational disruption and wheel ...

3. The traction control system uses the anti lock brake control module to access the wheel speed sensors. These sensors are responsible for detecting the speed in which your wheels are rotating. If youâ re not sure if youâ ve ever noticed the system at play, try this: Find a secluded parking lot on a wet or icy day. It prevents loss of traction of the wheels driven on roads. Cassy. When one loses traction, it alerts the system that itâ s spinning too fast. The traction control system (TCS) helps a driver maintain control and stability of the vehicle if it loses grip and starts to skid or slide. It becomes active when the engine torque and throttle input do not match with the surface you are driving. Excessive wheel spin is controlled in two ways, which may work separately or in tandem; engine traction control and brake traction control. How to fix traction control system light issue - Answered by a verified Auto Mechanic. While modern systems are electronic and highly reliable, it is still ...

Introduction: Manual traction is a commonly used technique in manual therapy. However, depicting changes in joint space distance via real time imaging during traction is seldomly applied. The aims of the study were to identify ACJ joint space distance changes during manual traction and creation of a classification of the techniques upon the largest change in the resultant parameter (l) representing joint space distance. Material and methods: Thirteen healthy volunteers were examined unilaterally. Acromioclavicular joint space distance changes were measured with dynamic ultrasound imaging during followingmanual traction techniques: International Academy of Orthopedic Medicine technique (IAOM AC), Karel Lewits Prague School of Manual Medicine & Rehabilitation technique (LAC) and authors own proposition (B AC). The differences in joint space distance between resting position (RP) and the traction technique position, created three parameters of displacement - horizontal (x), vertical (y) and (l) - ...

In the final evaluation, traction is the key driver for your business valuation, and is needed to attract investors, partners or a public stock offering. Your challenge as an entrepreneur is to generate traction and at the same time choose the right metrics to quantify and sell that traction to your team and to outsiders. For all practical purposes, if you cant or dont measure it, it doesnt exist.. Many entrepreneurs feel they need to spend more money to increase traction. In fact, the right solution in the right market will get traction at minimal cost, so that should be your target. Traction purchased by a huge marketing spend may indicate a business that is not sustainable in the long term. Smart investors and acquisition candidates heavily discount these efforts.. While the traction term may be overused by investors, it is a key concept that every entrepreneur should understand for assessing their own valuation and the level of uptake by customers that they are seeing on their business. ...

Introduction: A retrospective audit of electronic patient care records (ePCRs) highlighted the infrequent use of the traction splint for the management of femur fractures. The aim of this study was to improve the use of the traction splint for patients presenting with a mid-shaft femur fracture in the absence of contraindications, by means of introducing a purpose-designed trauma CPD training course. Methods: An intervention consisting of a simulation-based mandatory trauma CPD training session for all operational prehospital care providers was implemented over a 3-month period, supported by a pre- and post-implementation staff survey regarding staff perceptions of using a traction splint. Following the intervention period, a repeat retrospective audit of the ePCR database was conducted to identify any improvement in the use of the traction splint. Results: The use of the traction splint for a femur fracture in the pre-intervention stage was found to be underutilised (Median 16%). Following the

A surgical instrument for applying intracorporeal traction on tissue in an endoscopic workspace. An elongate introducer sleeve carries a distal jaw structure incorporating cooperating rolling tracks with tissue-gripping serrations for applying continuous traction on tissue. A proximal handle includes a jaw-actuating mechanism to close the jaws and the rolling tracks around tissue and to maintain the jaws in any pivoted position. The handle further includes a drive mechanism to roll the rolling tracks. Thus, counter-rotation of the cooperating tracks causes tissue to be progressively gripped and pulled into the throat or bore of the introducer sleeve. The handle includes a plurality of flexible bows as a drive mechanism so that the surgeon may rotate the instrument 360 to align the jaws with tissue and thereafter roll the tracks in any angular position by a simple squeezing force.

NORFOLK, Va. - Norfolk Southern continues to convert older D.C.-traction locomotives into A.C.-traction units at a pace of just over 100 locomotives per year.. Some 54% of the NS road fleet is now A.C. traction, Chief Financial Officer Mark George told an investor conference today. Thats up from a third of the fleet at the end of 2018. The railroad aims to have 65% of its road locomotives feature AC traction.. The D.C.-to-A.C. conversion program provides NS with a like-new locomotive for half the cost of buying a brand-new road locomotive. The A.C. units are more reliable, have reduced maintenance costs, are more efficient, and have better tractive effort than the D.C. locomotives they replace.. NS continues to add energy management systems to its road fleet, as well, as a way to improve fuel efficiency. About 80% of the road fleet is equipped now, as the railroad moves toward a goal of 90%. The railroad aims to put locomotives with energy management systems on the point so that the software ...

AbstractSoil Compaction results from compressive forces applied to compressible soil by machinery wheels, combined with tillage operations. Draft animal‐pulled equipment may also cause soil compaction, but a huge gap exists on experimental data to adequately assess their impacts and, actually, animal traction is an option seen with increasing potential to contribute to sustainable agriculture, especially in mountain areas. This study was conducted to assess the impacts on soil compaction of tillage operations with motor tractor and draft animals. In a farm plot (Vale de Frades, NE Portugal) treatments were applied in sub‐plots (30 m × 3 m), consisting in a two way tillage with tractor (T), a pair of cows (C) and a pair of donkeys (D). Undisturbed soil samples (120) were taken before and after operations for bulk density (BD) and saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ks). The relative changes in BD observed after tillage in the 0-0.05 m soil depth increased after operations in all treatments. The
Thirty-six patients with complete quadriplegia were reviewed. Twenty-two underwent surgery, and 14 did not. There were 11 burst fractures and 3 extension fracture-dislocations, which were treated with anterior decompression and rigid plate fixation. There were 22 flexion injuries that were treated with posterior stabilization using Kirschner-wire tension band fixation, Harrington compression hooks, or Halifax laminar hooks. The non-operative group was treated with skeletal traction with skull tongs for 6-12 weeks followed by the application of a hard collar or halo vest for 3 months. Of the 22 patients who underwent surgery, 32% descended one level and 18% two levels. In the nonoperative group, only one patient descended one level. It is concluded that the heretofore pessimistic outlook regarding complete quadriplegia is unwarranted and that a more aggressive approach may result in a better functional outcome.

Traction engine. Engraving of a steam-powered traction engine (at right) driving a threshing machine (at centre). Agricultural workers are putting whole, harvested corn into the top of the thresher which then beats and rubs it to separate the grain from the straw and seed husks. The grain is put into a sack (at lower centre) whilst the straw and husks are removed by a conveyor belt to be stacked (at far left). Traction engines were widely used in farming and engineering until the advent of the internal combustion engine to provide power for a variety of implements.

This 8.5 x 11 (21.59 x 27.94 cm) brochure is for the model 616 highway widener, which was manufactured by Buckeye Traction Ditcher Company between 1948 and 1951. The brochure is four pages in length. One of largest tile-ditching and construction-trenching companies in the world for fifty years, the Buckeye Steam Ditcher Company (later Buckeye Traction Ditcher Company and Garwood Industries) was established in Bowling Green, Ohio in 1893 by James B. Hill. He moved it to Deshler and Carey, Ohio before selling the company in 1902 to Van Buren, Heck & Marvin Co. At that time the firm moved to Findlay, Ohio, changing its name to the Buckeye Traction Ditcher Company. The firm later switched ownership several times; Garwood and Sergeant Industries were among the owners. The company discontinued production in Findlay in 1973, although Ohio Locomotive Crane Company of Bucyrus continued to manufacture a version of the machine ...
Vitrectomy has recently been investigated as an alternative treatment to laser photocoagulation. The clinical entity of a TTPH was first described by Lewis et al,1 who suggested that the hyaloid in these circumstances exerts tangential traction on the retinal surface inducing or exacerbating oedema and that relief of this traction resulted in visual improvement. Kaiser et al later published OCT data supporting the hypothesis that TTPH is associated with signs of traction.38 The importance of OCT imaging is increasingly being recognised and has now revolutionised the clinical analysis of the vitreomacular interface.39-41 OCT features suggesting vitreoretinal traction may however occur in the absence of a clinical TTPH. This was the case in four patients included in this study. Massin et al have retrospectively reported an improvement of two lines in 70% (5/7) of patients with OCT features of traction, compared to only 12.5% (1/8) rate of two line improvement and a median doubling of the visual ...
