Peripheral nerve injuries and repair in the upper extremity. (1/835)

Peripheral nerve injuries are commonly seen as a result of domestic, industrial, or military trauma. Sharp objects usually cause these nerve injuries. When assessing these injuries, it is important to evaluate each nerves' motor and sensory function. One must be cognizant of associated injuries such as fractures, vascular damage, and musculotendinous lacerations. The time since the injury, level of injury, and age of the patient are important prognosticators impacting the return of function. Intraoperatively, one must assess the vascularity of the soft tissue bed and the nerve itself, the nerve gap, conduction, and the topography of the fascicles to insure proper orientation. Application of the principles of nerve repair (magnification, minimal tension, meticulous soft tissue handling, experienced surgeon and staff) can enhance the chances for a successful result. Additionally, to maximize functional recovery following peripheral nerve repair, a carefully planned program of postoperative occupational therapy and rehabilitation must be instituted.  (+info)

Cervical myelopathy due to a "tight dural canal in flexion" with a posterior epidural cavity. (2/835)

A 41-year-old man noticed weakness and atrophy in his right hand and forearm resembling the non-progressive juvenile muscular atrophy of unilateral upper extremity (Hirayama's disease). MRI showed an abnormal cavity in the posterior epidural space which appeared on neck flexion communicating with the subarachnoid space in addition to the flattening of the lower cervical spinal cord on neck flexion. When evaluating atypical cases of Hirayama's disease, the pathomechanism demonstrated in the present case should be taken into consideration.  (+info)

A review of functional status measures for workers with upper extremity disorders. (3/835)

In order to identify functional status measures for epidemiological studies among workers with mild to moderate disorders of the neck and upper extremity, a literature search was conducted for the years 1966 to 2001. Inclusion criteria were: (1) relevance to neck and upper extremity; (2) assessment among workers; and (3) relevance to mild to moderate disorders. Of 13 instruments reviewed, six measures were tested among workers. The three best measures, depending on the purpose of research, included the standardised Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire, the Upper Extremity Questionnaire, and the Neck and Upper Limb Instrument. Development of a functional protocol is regarded as a realistic enhancement for research of neck and upper extremity disorders in the workplace. For research and clinical practice, measures of functional status, sensitive enough to measure the subtle conditions in mild to moderate disorders, may provide prognostic information about the risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders in apparently healthy patients. Appropriate use of functional status questionnaires is imperative for a meaningful portrayal of health.  (+info)

Peripheral mechanisms in tremor after traumatic neck injury. (4/835)

Tremor is a rare manifestation after neck injury, and its physiological mechanism has not been elucidated. We studied the effects of torque loading and ischaemic nerve block on coarse postural tremor in the right upper extremity, which had developed in association with a C7-C8 radiculopathy after traumatic neck injury in a 55 year old man. Loading reduced the tremor frequency from 6.1 Hz to 4.2 Hz with corresponding electromyography (EMG) bursts at the same frequencies as the tremor. Ischaemic nerve block also reduced the tremor frequency from 6.2 Hz to 2.8 Hz, and the time course of the frequency was not in parallel with that of the size of the maximal M wave. A significant reduction of the tremor frequency by loading and ischaemic nerve block indicates a mechanical reflex mechanism underlying the tremor, and association of synchronous EMG bursts suggests an increase in gain in the stretch reflex loop. The stretch reflex loop plays an important role in generation of oscillation in tremor after neck injury.  (+info)

The effects of a contoured foam seat on postural alignment and upper-extremity function in infants with neuromotor impairments. (5/835)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Physical therapists and occupational therapists frequently use adaptive seating devices to improve stability in sitting for children with neuromotor impairments. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a contoured foam seat (CFS) on postural alignment and on the ability of infants with neuromotor impairments to engage with toys. Parental perceptions regarding the use and effects of the CFS also were assessed via semistructured interviews. SUBJECTS: Subjects were 4 infants, ages 9 to 18 months, who were unable to sit independently. METHOD: A time-series, alternating-treatments design was used, with data collected under 3 conditions: (1) a regular highchair, (2) a regular highchair with a thin foam liner, and (3) a CFS used as an insert in a regular highchair. The primary dependent measures were postural alignment and engagement with toys. Engagement with toys was defined as percentage of intervals with 2 hands on a toy and percentage of intervals with no hands on a highchair tray and 1 or 2 hands on a toy. RESULTS: Results showed a sustained effect of the CFS on improving postural alignment for all subjects. Effects of the CFS on increasing the number of intervals of bimanual play were not demonstrated for any subjects, although some improvement in the infant's ability to free the arms from support was observed for 2 subjects. Mothers reported acceptability of the CFS for everyday use and described benefits for themselves and their infants. DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: The results support the use of a CFS for improving postural alignment. Future research on adaptive seating should focus on interventions and outcomes that help children participate in functional activities relevant to them and their families.  (+info)

Low-molecular-weight heparin (nadroparin) and very low doses of warfarin in the prevention of upper extremity thrombosis in cancer patients with indwelling long-term central venous catheters: a pilot randomized trial. (6/835)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Upper extremity thrombosis is a major complication of central venous catheters implanted for chemotherapy in cancer patients. Vitamin K antagonists and low-molecular-weight heparins have been recommended in this setting, but their relative benefit-to-risk ratios have never been compared. DESIGN AND METHODS: A prospective, randomized, open, parallel-group, multicenter trial was performed comparing the antithrombotic efficacy and safety of warfarin and the low-molecular-weight heparin, nadroparin, in cancer patients who had undergone central venous catheter implantation. Warfarin was given orally at a fixed daily dose of 1 mg and nadroparin was injected subcutaneously at a fixed daily dose of 2,850 IU for 90 days, or until venographically-confirmed thrombosis occurred. The primary efficacy outcome was the occurrence of upper extremity thrombosis confirmed by venography performed 90 days after insertion of the catheter, or earlier if symptoms of thrombosis had appeared. Safety end-points were bleeding and thrombocytopenia. RESULTS: Fifty-nine patients were included in the study. A total of 21 and 24 patients in the nadroparin and warfarin groups, respectively, were evaluable for primary efficacy. Six out of the 21 patients in the nadroparin group (28.6%) and 4 out of the 24 patients in the warfarin group (16.7%) had venographically-documented upper extremity thrombosis at day 90 (p=0.48). Safety was satisfactory and similar with both treatments. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: Warfarin at a fixed, very low dose and nadroparin at a fixed, prophylactic dose had comparable benefit-to-risk ratios in the prevention of thrombosis associated with central venous catheters in cancer patients.  (+info)

Kinematics and kinetics of multijoint reaching in nonhuman primates. (7/835)

The present study identifies the mechanics of planar reaching movements performed by monkeys (Macaca mulatta) wearing a robotic exoskeleton. This device maintained the limb in the horizontal plane such that hand motion was generated only by flexor and extensor motions at the shoulder and elbow. The study describes the kinematic and kinetic features of the shoulder, elbow, and hand during reaching movements from a central target to peripheral targets located on the circumference of a circle: the center-out task. While subjects made reaching movements with relatively straight smooth hand paths and little variation in peak hand velocity, there were large variations in joint motion, torque, and power for movements in different spatial directions. Unlike single-joint movements, joint kinematics and kinetics were not tightly coupled for these multijoint movements. For most movements, power generation was predominantly generated at only one of the two joints. The present analysis illustrates the complexities inherent in multijoint movements and forms the basis for understanding strategies used by the motor system to control reaching movements and for interpreting the response of neurons in different brain regions during this task.  (+info)

Evidence for cortical functional changes in patients with migraine and white matter abnormalities on conventional and diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging. (8/835)

BACKGROUND: In this study, we used functional MRI (fMRI) to investigate the pattern of cortical activations after a simple motor task in patients with migraine and white matter (WM) abnormalities on conventional MRI scans of the brain. We also investigated whether the extent of brain activations was correlated with WM structural pathology measured using diffusion tensor (DT) MRI. METHODS: From 15 right-handed patients with migraine and 15 sex- and age-matched, right-handed healthy volunteers, we obtained the following: (1) fMRI (repetitive flexion-extension of the last 4 fingers of the right hand), (2) dual-echo turbo spin echo scans, and (3) pulsed-gradient spin-echo echo-planar sequence to calculate DT-MRI maps. fMRI analysis was performed using SPM99 and cluster detection. We measured the volume, the average mean diffusivity (), and the average fractional anisotropy of all lesions seen on the dual-echo scans. histograms of the normal-appearing WM were also produced. RESULTS: Compared with healthy volunteers, migraine patients had a larger relative activation of the contralateral primary sensorimotor cortex (P=0.01) and a rostral displacement of the supplementary motor area (P=0.03). The shapes of the curves reflecting the time course for fMRI signal intensity changes were similar between migraine patients and controls for all of the cortical areas we studied. Compared with healthy subjects, migraine patients had significantly lower histogram peak height of the normal-appearing WM histogram (P=0.02), which was found to be correlated with the extent of displacement of the supplementary motor area (r=-0.80, P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that functional cortical changes occur in patients with migraine and brain MRI abnormalities and that they might be secondary to the extent of subcortical structural damage.  (+info)

In this fixed cohort of automotive manufacturing workers, the prevalence of upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders was similar at follow up to that found in the baseline survey of the same population. MSD cases were defined both on the basis of symptoms uniquely and also by the combination of symptoms plus physical examination findings. Although disorders by symptoms alone were slightly more frequent than disorders confirmed by physical examination, the two case types had quite similar risk factors. The cumulative incidence of new disorders was strongly associated with previously assessed level of exposure to combined ergonomic stressors affecting the upper extremity. Nearly 60% of subjects who had disorders at baseline were still (or again) cases in the second survey. We did not identify consistent predictors of persistence.. The incidence results generally confirmed our previous cross sectional findings. Length biased sampling means that a cross sectional study necessarily identifies ...

Preventing UEMSD injury and disability is challenging. OHS practitioners are charged with designing and implementing solutions. Evidence-based approaches should help identify and implement more effective solutions. Optimal evidence-based practice employs the knowledge and experience of practitioners along with the most up-to-date evidence from the scientific literature in the context of the client (patient, worker, etc) to determine prevention solutions.113. It can be challenging for busy OHS practitioners to find and read the latest research on any given topic. This challenge is compounded by the increase in the number of OHS publications year to year. Using the same literature search strategy as the earlier review,23 we found over 9900 references in a 5-year period (2008-2013) as compared with approximately 15 400 in a much longer period (mid-1960s-2008). We did find a higher proportion of relevant high-quality studies (50% vs 39%) in the past 5 years as compared with the original ...

Background: Analysis of upper extremity weight bearing ability is important for athletes as some function largely in a closed chain capacity (e.g., wrestling, football, gymnastics); also, all require closed chain upper extremity function during strength and conditioning. Additionally, in a rehabilitation setting, closed chain upper extremity functional testing is often used as a return to play criterion. Lower extremity sway measures (biomechanical and clinical) have been published widely and have established reliability and validity; however, the reliability of upper extremity sway biomechanical measures has not been investigated to date.. Hypothesis/Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the repeatability of a variety of force plate measurements during an upper extremity task in an athletic population. It was hypothesized that variables measuring upper extremity sway in a closed kinetic chain position would have excellent reliability.. Study Design: Cross-sectional.. Methods: All ...

Conclusions Our results confirmed the surgery on upper extremity of RA improved the patients reported function, as well as the disease activity. There were surgical site-specific pattern of improvement of DASH and Hand20, such as that gross movement and pain significantly improved in larger joints, and dexterity movement and cosmetic factor in smaller joints. Postoperative upper extremity function was tend to improve, but more significantly in non-bDMARDs group, probably because the patients might had relatively better baseline function in the bDMARDs group. Understanding of site-specific patterns of improvement after surgery might be useful to achieve the functional remission, and may contribute to decision making of surgical indication, priority of surgical site on upper extremity, and prospection of surgical outcome. ...
The confusion between the terms open kinetic chain and closed kinetic chain becomes even greater with application to the upper extremity. Upper extremity function is very difficult to define, due to the numerous shoulder positions and the great velocities with which the shoulder can move. Classifying exercises for rehabilitation of the upper extremity is very difficult due to the complexity of the joint. Many definitions and classification systems have been proposed; however, none of these entirely encompass rehabilitation of the upper extremity. Using previous classifications we have developed a Functional Classification System that is designed to serve as a template for upper extremity rehabilitation. This system has been designed to restore functional shoulder stability, which is dependent upon proper scapulothoracic and glenohumeral stability, and humeral control; all of these are in part mediated by neuromuscular mechanisms. The objective of our new Functional Classification System is to ...
Background: Few studies have investigated motor function in the upper extremity in both ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke. Different recovery patterns in upper extremity motor function have clinically been described, but there is a lack of research. Purpose: To investigate differences in recovery of upper extremity motor function after ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke during the first year after a stroke. Methods: From the Stroke Arm Longitudinal Study at the Gothenburg University study, 45 people fulfilled eight assessment occasions during twelve months after a first ever stroke. People who had first ever stroke and reduced upper extremity function at day three post stroke were included in the study. Upper extremity motor function was investigated with the Fugl-Meyer Assessment for Upper Extremity (FMA-UE) at day 3, day 10, at 3, 4 and 6 weeks and at 3, 6 and 12 months. Descriptive statistics was used to present data, to compare differences between ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, subgroup analyses ...
The purpose of this study is to estimate the efficacy of Contralataterally Controlled Functional Electrical Stimulation (CCFES) in reducing upper extremity impairment and activity limitation in chronic upper extremity hemiplegia. CCFES is a rehabilitation intervention in which neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is applied to the finger and thumb extensor muscles of the paretic upper limb to open the hand. The stroke survivor controls the stimulation intensity, and consequent degree of hand opening, by modulating the degree of opening of the contralateral unimpaired hand, which is detected by an instrumented glove. Thus, volitional opening of the unaffected hand produces stimulated opening of the affected hand. The stimulation paradigm is used to assist the stroke survivor in practicing functional tasks with their affected hand. We will conduct a randomized controlled trial in which chronic stroke survivors (>6 months post-stroke) will be randomly assigned to receive 12 weeks of CCFES or ...

A mirror therapy program is an effective intervention for upper-limb motor recovery and motor function improvement in patients with acute stroke, say authors of an article published in American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. For this study, 26 patients who had an acute stroke within 6 months of study commencement were assigned to the experimental group (n = 13) or the control group (n = 13). Both experimental and control group patients participated in a standard rehabilitation program, but only the experimental group members participated in mirror therapy program for 25 minutes twice a day, 5 times a week, for 4 weeks. Researchers used the Fugl-Meyer Assessment, Brunnstrom motor recovery stage, and Manual Function Test to assess changes in upper-limb motor recovery and motor function after intervention.. In upper-limb motor recovery, the scores of Fugl-Meyer Assessment (by shoulder/elbow/forearm items, 9.54 vs 4.61; wrist items, 2.76 vs 1.07; hand items, 4.43 vs 1.46, ...

Some studies have been done to quantify the contribution of the upper limbs in able-bodied cycling but, to date, none in the para-cycling field. First, the aim of this pilot study is to verify a protocol and related setup defined to compare the impairments of the upper limbs widespread among the para-athletes competing in the C (Cycling) division. The comparisons are between the simulations of impairments and with respect to the able-bodied reference positions from a performance, kinematic and kinetic point of view. Secondly, we want to understand if it is necessary to study the upper limbs to define a new evidence-based classification system in para-cycling. Whole body kinematics, forces measured on both sides of a custom-made handlebar and power output from the ergometer were collected from a participant performing 15 sitting 10 s long maximum sprints in a random order. For the wrist, elbow and shoulder joints, the 3D range of motion has been calculated and through an inverse dynamic analysis ...

The long-term objective is to conduct comparative efficacy research to identify the possible mechanisms and the relative effectiveness of existing rehabilitation approaches of fully defined-, evidence-based, and theory-grounded approaches. This proposed project aims to (1) compare the effects of dose-matched unilateral vs bilateral vs unilateral combined with bilateral upper limb rehabilitation based on task-related practice; (2) compare the effects of unilateral vs bilateral training based on robot-assisted devices; and (3) study the predictors of treatment outcomes and clinimetric properties of the biomechanical measures. The outcome measures will span the spectrum of health-related functioning, including motor and neural control, movement performance, daily functions, and quality of life. Motor and neural control mechanisms involving movement strategies, muscle and force output, and brain reorganization will be evaluated using kinematic, electromyographic (EMG), and kinetic analyses, and also ...

The goal of this critically appraised topic was to review current evidence regarding the relationship between kinesiophobia and patient perceptions of disability in those with upper-extremity injuries. There is currently moderate evidence regarding the psychological effect of kinesiophobia on self-reported disability in patients with upper-extremity injuries. All 3 of the appraised studies found that either pain catastrophizing, kinesiophobia, or pain-related fear impacted the perception of disability in the upper-extremity.4,8,10 All reviewed studies were characterized as level 3 evidence according to the Oxford Centre of Evidence-Based Medicine. Based on the findings in this critically appraised topic, it can be concluded that clinicians should be evaluating and monitoring kinesiophobia in patients following an upper-extremity injury.. While these articles have moderate evidence supporting a psychological impact of kinesiophobia, some differences were found between studies that were included. ...
TY - GEN. T1 - Virtual reality-augmented rehabilitation in the acute phase post-stroke for individuals with flaccid upper extremities. T2 - 11th Annual International Conference on Virtual Rehabilitation, ICVR 2015. AU - Patel, Jigna. AU - Fluet, Gerard. AU - Merians, Alma. AU - Qiu, Qinyin. AU - Yarossi, Matthew. AU - Adamovich, Sergei. AU - Tunik, Eugene. AU - Massood, Supriya. PY - 2015/12/16. Y1 - 2015/12/16. N2 - Rehabilitation of individuals with flaccid or severely affected upper extremities is challenging due to their limited motor ability and few options for therapeutic training. This initial study tested the feasibility of training individuals with severe hemiparesis using virtual reality (VR) based mirrored feedback and pinch force modulation tasks. The results demonstrated that the simulations were well tolerated early after stroke. Priming effects of the mirror tasks were suggested by increased maximal pinch force immediately after training. Furthermore, despite having no clinically ...
It is the purpose of this article to identify and review criteria that rehabilitation technology should meet in order to offer arm-hand training to stroke patients, based on recent principles of motor learning. A literature search was conducted in PubMed, MEDLINE, CINAHL, and EMBASE (1997-2007). One hundred and eighty seven scientific papers/book references were identified as being relevant. Rehabilitation approaches for upper limb training after stroke show to have shifted in the last decade from being analytical towards being focussed on environmentally contextual skill training (task-oriented training). Training programmes for enhancing motor skills use patient and goal-tailored exercise schedules and individual feedback on exercise performance. Therapist criteria for upper limb rehabilitation technology are suggested which are used to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a number of current technological systems. This review shows that technology for supporting upper limb training after stroke

BACKGROUND: Few prospective cohort studies of distal upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders have been performed. Past studies have provided somewhat conflicting evidence for occupational risk factors and have largely reported data without adjustments for many personal and psychosocial factors. METHODS/DESIGN: A multi-center prospective cohort study was incepted to quantify risk factors for dis
Studies of stroke patients undergoing robot-assisted rehabilitation have revealed various kinematic parameters describing movement quality of the upper limb. However, due to the different level of stroke impairment and different assessment criteria and interventions, the evaluation of the effectiveness of rehabilitation program is undermined. This paper presents a systematic review of kinematic assessments of movement quality of the upper limb and identifies the suitable parameters describing impairments in stroke patients. A total of 41 different clinical and pilot studies on different phases of stroke recovery utilizing kinematic parameters are evaluated. Kinematic parameters describing movement accuracy are mostly reported for chronic patients with statistically significant outcomes and correlate strongly with clinical assessments. Meanwhile, parameters describing feed-forward sensorimotor control are the most frequently reported in studies on sub-acute patients with significant outcomes albeit
Few community-based epidemiological investigations of upper limb disorders (ULDs) have classified cases by validated procedures involving a structured clinical examination.To compare risk factor profiles for different diagnostic categories of ULD using one such examination scheme.A questionnaire about upper limb pain and demographic, occupational and psychosocial risk factors was mailed to 10,264 adults from two English general practices, followed by standardized physical examination in those with arm or neck pain. Logistic regression was used to compare those with specific ULDs and non-specific arm pain with those who had no neck or arm symptoms.There was a 59% response rate. A total of 1,197 subjects with arm or neck pain underwent standardized physical examination and were classified as having one or more of 11 specific ULDs or non-specific regional pain. Among these, 250 subjects with specific ULDs and 176 with only non-specific arm pain were compared with 2,248 subjects who had no neck or arm

In the attention network, disruption of interhemispheric FC was significantly correlated with abnormal detection of visual stimuli (Pearson r with field effect = −0.624, p = 0.002). In the somatomotor network, disruption of interhemispheric FC was significantly correlated with upper extremity impairment (Pearson r with contralesional Action Research Arm Test = 0.527, p = 0.036). In contrast, intrahemispheric FC within the normal or damaged hemispheres was not correlated with performance in either network. Quantitative lesion analysis demonstrated that our results could not be explained by structural damage alone. ...
Background and objectives There are a limited number of publications on the features of arteriovenous graft infection in hemodialysis patients. The authors compared the clinical presentation, complications, and outcomes of infections of thigh and upper extremity grafts. Design, setting, participants, and measurements The authors queried a prospective access database at a large university medical center and identified 132 patients with graft infections (40 in the thigh and 92 in the upper extremity) requiring surgical excision. The authors collected information regarding the microbiology, complications, and clinical outcomes. Results The two graft groups were similar in age, gender, race, and frequency of diabetes. The median age of infected grafts was 162 days for thigh grafts versus 168 days for upper extremity grafts (P = 0.35). Thigh graft infections were more likely than upper extremity graft infections to be caused by a Gram-negative rod (31% versus 4%; P = 0.003), and more likely to result ...
Upper limb disability is a common musculoskeletal condition frequently associated with neck pain. Recent literature has reported the need to utilise validated upper limb outcome measures in the assessment and management of patients with neck pain. However, there is a lack of clear guidance about the suitability of available measures, which may impede utilisation. This review will identify all available measures of upper limb function developed for use in neck pain patients and evaluate their measurement and practical properties in order to identify those measures that are most appropriate for use in clinical practice and research. This review will be performed in two phases. Phase one will identify all measures used to assess upper limb function for patients with neck pain. Phase two will identify all available studies of the measurement and practical properties of identified instrument. The COnsensus-based Standards for selection of health Measurement INstrument (COSMIN) will be used to evaluate the
Upper-limb surgery in tetraplegia includes a number of surgical interventions that can help improve the quality of life of a patient with tetraplegia. Loss of upper-limb function in patients with following a spinal cord injury is a major barrier to regain autonomy. The functional abilities of a tetraplegic patient increase substantially for instance if the patient can extend the elbow. This can increase the workspace and give a better use of a manual wheelchair. To be able to hold objects a patient needs to have a functional pinch grip, this can be useful for performing daily living activities. A large survey in patients with tetraplegia demonstrated that these patients give preference to improving upper extremity function above other lost functions like being able to walk or sexual function. Surgical procedures do exist to improve the function of the tetraplegic patients arms, but these procedures are performed in fewer than 10% of the tetraplegic patients. Each tetraplegic patient is unique, ...
Introduction: Experimental studies show that stem cells can improve motor recovery in animal stroke models. In humans, upper extremity motor impairment (UEMI) is a major consequence following stroke and can entail substantial disability. As stem cell therapy (SCT) may become clinically applicable to promote arm/hand motor recovery after stroke, we aimed to examine the frequency and recovery of UEMI, as well as its correlation to functional status and health-related quality of life (HRQoL), in a selected sample of stroke patients potentially suitable for SCT.. Methods: Consecutive first-ever ischemic stroke patients (n=108) were included in the Lund Stroke Recovery Study in 2009-2011 if: they were aged 20-75 years; underwent brain DW-MRI within 4 days of stroke onset; and their baseline stroke severity was 1-18 according to the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS). All survivors were invited to a clinical follow-up after 3.5-5.5 years, including: NIHSS arm and extended NIHSS hand ...

Aging, even in healthy older adults, is accompanied by a reduction in muscle mass and muscle strength (Gallagher et al., 1997). The gradual loss of muscle strength (below a certain threshold) results in functional impairment. This may result in the need for assistance in the performance of daily activities and an increased risk of falling and non-vertebral fractures (Goodpaster et al., 2006). Therefore, the preservation of muscle strength in older adults is of major importance. Lower extremity function is the use of lower limbs and is imperative for mobility, lower extremity function can be assessed using various practical tests with the patient and is most commonly evaluated via a lower extremity functional scale. A practical non-invasive and cost-effective solution to keeping good lower extremity function is through a basic exercise program (Marsh et al., 2009). Mobility is the key to leading a high quality of life with independence, thus a diminished lower extremity function may result in the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Reliability of lower extremity functional performance tests. AU - Bolgla, Lori Ann. AU - Keskula, Douglas R.. PY - 1997/1/1. Y1 - 1997/1/1. N2 - Clinicians routinely have used functional performance tests as an evaluation tool in deciding when an athlete can safely return to unrestricted sporting activities. These practitioners assumed that these tests provide a reliable measure of lower extremity performance; however, little research has been reported on the reliability of these measures. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the reliability of lower extremity functional performance tests. Five male and 15 female volunteers were evaluated using the single hop for distance, triple hop for distance, 6-m timed hop, and cross-over hop for distance as described by Noyes (10). One clinician measured each subjects performance using a standardized protocol and retested subjects in the same manner approximately 48 hours later. The order of testing was randomly determined. ...

Objectives: To define upper extremity outcome measures focusing on trauma and level of initial psychometric evaluation and to assess methodological quality of relevant patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures. Data Sources: A broad search strategy using PubMed, OVID, CINAHL, and PsycINFO was deployed and reported using PRISMA (PROSPERO: CRD42016046243). Study Selection Extraction Synthesis: PRO measures involving orthopedic trauma in their original development were selected and original publications assessed, including psychometric evaluations. Extraction, synthesis, and quality assessment were performed using COSMIN. Results: Of 144 upper extremity outcome measures, the majority were designed for the shoulder, wrist, and hand; 20% (n = 29/144) involved trauma conditions in their initial development, PRO measurements, and psychometric evaluation on introduction. Methodological quality was highly variable. Conclusion: A few PRO measures were originally designed for use in upper extremity trauma.

In this post, the author tells us that due to increase in technological gadgets that has broadened the communication realm, there has been an increase in repetitive stress injuries sustained in the neck and upper extremities as seen in her practice. People suffering from such injuries may show up with complaints that can include numbness, tingling, burning, aching, and pins and needle in one or more of the following areas: shoulders, deltoids, biceps, triceps, forearms, wrists, palms, thumbs, the entire hand or any of the fingers. Often the sensations that an individual is experiencing can be related to their cervical spine/neck. It is essential when diagnosing these conditions to find out where the pain actually stems from. The author feels that the problem arises when the diagnoses and treatments are aimed at the area of complaint vs. the actual area of injury. With all the hours we spend sitting at our desks, using our computers and/or hand- held devises, we put a great deal of strain on the muscles

The Box and Blocks Test (BBT) is a functional test used in upper limb rehabilitation. The test is used to measure the gross manual dexterity of a patient, or of a person using an upper limb prosthetic device. The test consists of a box with a partition in the middle. Blocks are placed at one side of the partition. The box is placed at a table. The test subject is seated, facing towards the box. During the tests the test subject is given 60 seconds to move as many blocks as possible from one side to the other, by using only his tested hand. The tested hand can be either the subjects own hand or a prosthetic device operated by the subject. The number of displaced blocks is a measure of the gross manual dexterity. A higher number of displaced blocks indicates a better gross dexterity. The outcome can be compared to reference values of healthy test subjects, or reference values of tests performed with a prosthesis. The Box and Blocks Test enables measuring progress of gross hand dexterity during ...

A review of the literature on the pathophysiology of upper extremity muscle disorders (UEMDs) was performed. An overview is given of clinical findings and hypotheses on the pathogenesis of UEMDs. The literature indicates that disorders of muscle cells and limitations of the local circulation underlie UEMDs. However, these disorders identified do not necessarily lead to symptoms. The following mechanisms have been proposed in the literature: (1) selective recruitment and overloading of type I (Cinderella) motor units; (2) intra-cellular Ca2+ accumulation; (3) impaired blood flow; (3b) reperfusion injury; (3.3c) blood vessel-nociceptor interaction; (4a) myofascial force transmission; (4b) intramuscular shear forces; (5) trigger points; (6) impaired heat shock response. The results of the review indicate that there are multiple possible mechanisms, but none of the hypotheses forms a complete explanation and is sufficiently supported by empirical data. Overall, the literature indicates that: (1) ...

Background: Difficulties in orchestrating simultaneous tasks (i.e., dual-tasking) have been associated with cognitive impairments in older adults. Gait tests have been commonly used as the motor task component for dual-task assessments; however, many older adults have mobility impairments or there is a lack of space in busy clinical settings. We assessed an upper-extremity functional (UEF) test as an alternative motor task to study the dual-task motor performance in older adults. Methods: Older adults (≥ 65 years) were recruited, and cognitive ability was measured using the Montreal cognitive assessment (MoCA). Participants performed repetitive elbow flexion with their maximum pace, once single-task, and once while counting backward by one (dual-task). Single- and dual-task gait tests were also performed with normal speed. Three-dimensional kinematics were measured both from upper-extremity and lower-extremity using wearable sensors to determine UEF and gait parameters. Parameters were compared for

  • BACKGROUND: Lower extremity edema occurs in many conditions including congestive heart failure, lymphedema, diabetes-related, kidney and liver disease, chronic venous insufficiency with venous hypertension. (
  • Our goals were to introduce a simple noninvasive measurement procedure potentially useful to characterize lower extremity edema by providing normative values from which edema thresholds might emerge. (
  • From these direct measurements lower-to-upper extremity TDC ratios (foot/arm and leg/arm) were determined for each gender. (
  • Possible edema threshold ratios were calculated as the mean lower-to-upper ratio to which was added two standard deviations of the overall ratio thereby providing initial thresholds for future testing. (
  • CONCLUSIONS: This assessment method together with the normative ratios and calculated thresholds may aid in rapid detection of lower extremity edema in patients and possibly as a way to quantitatively track changes in edema status with time or treatment. (
  • However, the suitability of these thresholds is subject to future validation in persons with clearly defined lower extremity edema for which this report's findings serve as an initial quantitative starting point. (

  • Purpose: Fungal infections involving the tenosynovium of the upper extremity are uncommon and are often misdiagnosed. (
  • Symptomatic upper-extremity arterial occlusive disease is uncommon because of the abundant collateral network and the infrequency of atherosclerosis in the upper extremity. (
  • Tearing in the bones of the arms and joints, and in the upper part of the fingers. (
  • If nerve regeneration is inadequate after upper-arm replantation, elbow preservation allows for a forearm amputation and a below-elbow prosthesis. (
  • Its only direct territorial afferents are those which accompany the cephalic vein and one which drains the upper peripheral part of the mamma, but it receives the efferents of all the other axillary glands. (
  • One third of peripheral emboli lodge in the upper extremity, producing acute arterial occlusion. (
  • what plexus is total nerve supply of all upper extremity structures? (
  • Upper extremity overuse injuries in swimming. (
  • For acute upper extremity DVT, anticoagulation therapy should be started promptly, for example, with LMWH once daily. (
  • When technical failures were excluded, the median cumulative survival was 27.6 mo for thigh grafts and 22.5 mo for upper extremity grafts (P = 0.72). (
  • The frequency of angioplasty (0.28 versus 0.57 per year), thrombectomy (1.58 versus 0.94 per year), surgical revision (0.28 versus 0.18 per year), and total intervention rate (2.15 versus 1.70 per year) was similar between thigh and upper extremity grafts. (
  • Accurate measurement of joint kinematics is required to understand the musculoskeletal effects of a therapeutic intervention such as upper extremity (UE) ergometry. (
  • The objectives of this intervention research project were to develop and evaluate engineering control s for the reduction of the upper extremity injury risk in workers in the furniture manufacturing industry. (
  • Walker Design for Kinetic Assessment of Upper Extremity Joint Demands " by Katherine A. Konop, Kelly M.B. Strifling et al. (
  • Occupational factors including exposure to noise , the upper extremity demands of gillnetting, and long working hours while fishing exacerbate these chronic health conditions. (
  • In Canada, upper extremity MSDs and low-back pain are the leading causes of disabling work-related injuries. (
  • Four months prior to presentation, she suffered a fall in the garden resulting in intractable upper cervical pain. (
  • Methods: A retrospective review of all culture-confirmed cases of fungal tenosynovitis of the upper extremity treated between 1990 and 2013 at a single institution was performed. (
  • DVT involve the upper extremities, resulting in an annual incidence of 0.4 to 1 case per 10,000 people," writes Nils Kucher, MD, from the Departments of Angiology and Cardiology, Cardiovascular Division, Inselspital, University Hospital Bern in Bern, Switzerland. (
  • The Institute for Work & Health (IWH) first tried to fill this research gap about 10 years ago when it conducted a review of the research to look for occupational health and safety (OHS) interventions that effectively prevent and manage upper extremity MSDs. (
  • 5. A medial or subclavicular group of six to twelve glands is situated partly posterior to the upper portion of the Pectoralis minor and partly above the upper border of this muscle. (
