62. Which causes more ergonomic stress: Laparoscopic or open surgery? (PubMed)

Which causes more ergonomic stress: Laparoscopic or open surgery? There is increasing awareness of potential ergonomic challenges experienced by the laparoscopic surgeon. The purpose of this study is to quantify and compare the ergonomic stress experienced by a surgeon while performing open versus laparoscopic portions of a procedure. We hypothesize that a surgeon will experience greater ergonomic stress when performing laparoscopic surgery.We designed a study to measure upper-body muscle (...) activation during the laparoscopic and open portions of sigmoid colectomies in a single surgeon. A sample of five cases was recorded over a two-month time span. Each case contained significant portions of laparoscopic and open surgery. We obtained whole-case electromyography (EMG) tracings from bilateral biceps, triceps, deltoid, and trapezius muscles. After normalization to a maximum voltage of contraction (%MVC), these EMG tracings were used to calculate average muscle activation during the open

65. Understanding Contradictory Data in Contraction Stress Tests. (PubMed)

Understanding Contradictory Data in Contraction Stress Tests. The literature shows contradictory results regarding the role of composite shrinkage and elastic modulus as determinants of polymerization stress. The present study aimed at a better understanding of the test mechanics that could explain such divergences among studies. The hypothesis was that the effects of composite shrinkage and elastic modulus on stress depend upon the compliance of the testing system. A commonly used test (...) apparatus was simulated by finite element analysis, with different compliance levels defined by the bonding substrate (steel, glass, composite, or acrylic). Composites with moduli between 1 and 12 GPa and shrinkage values between 0.5% and 6% were modeled. Shrinkage was simulated by thermal analogy. The hypothesis was confirmed. When shrinkage and modulus increased simultaneously, stress increased regardless of the substrate. However, if shrinkage and modulus were inversely related, their magnitudes

67. Mechanical effects of muscle contraction increase intravascular ATP draining quiescent and active skeletal muscle in humans (PubMed)

Mechanical effects of muscle contraction increase intravascular ATP draining quiescent and active skeletal muscle in humans Intravascular adenosine triphosphate (ATP) evokes vasodilation and is implicated in the regulation of skeletal muscle blood flow during exercise. Mechanical stresses to erythrocytes and endothelial cells stimulate ATP release in vitro. How mechanical effects of muscle contractions contribute to increased plasma ATP during exercise is largely unexplored. We tested (...) the hypothesis that simulated mechanical effects of muscle contractions increase [ATP](venous) and ATP effluent in vivo, independent of changes in tissue metabolic demand, and further increase plasma ATP when superimposed with mild-intensity exercise. In young healthy adults, we measured forearm blood flow (FBF) (Doppler ultrasound) and plasma [ATP](v) (luciferin-luciferase assay), then calculated forearm ATP effluent (FBF×[ATP](v)) during rhythmic forearm compressions (RFC) via a blood pressure cuff

68. Effects of α-lipoic Acid on mtDNA Damage after Isolated Muscle Contractions. (PubMed)

Effects of α-lipoic Acid on mtDNA Damage after Isolated Muscle Contractions. Although pharmacological antioxidants have previously been investigated for a prophylactic effect against exercise oxidative stress, it is not known if α-lipoic acid supplementation can protect against DNA damage after high-intensity isolated quadriceps exercise. This randomized controlled investigation was designed to test the hypothesis that 14 d of α-lipoic acid supplementation can attenuate exercise-induced (...) of contraction = 60° · s(-1)).Exercise increased mitochondrial 8-hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) concentration in both groups (P < 0.05 vs rest) with a concomitant decrease in total antioxidant capacity (P < 0.05 vs rest). There was a marked increase in blood total antioxidant capacity after oral α-lipoic acid supplementation (P < 0.05 vs nonsupplemented), whereas DNA damage (Comet assay and 8-OHdG), lipid peroxidation, and hydrogen peroxide increased after exercise in the nonsupplemented group only (P

70. Corneal surface asphericity, roughness, and transverse contraction following uniform scanning excimer laser ablation. (PubMed)

Corneal surface asphericity, roughness, and transverse contraction following uniform scanning excimer laser ablation. To examine the interaction between the excimer laser and residual tissue.Ten cadaveric porcine eyes with exposed corneal stroma and plastic test spheres underwent uniform 6-mm ablation with a scanning excimer laser. Corneal profilometry of the central 3 mm was measured with submicrometer resolution optical interferometry, before and after uniform excimer ablation. Eleven surface (...) not seen with isotropic, inorganic material. Increases in asphericity, surface roughness, surface contraction, and stromal morphologic changes are supportive of this interaction. The surface changes demonstrated may be indicative of temperature-induced transverse collagen fibril contraction and stress redistribution, or the ablation threshold of the stromal surface may be altered. This phenomenon may be of increased importance using lasers with increased thermal load.

71. Reflex contraction of the levator ani in women symptomatic for pelvic floor disorders. (PubMed)

Reflex contraction of the levator ani in women symptomatic for pelvic floor disorders. Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common health problem in women. Reflex activation of muscular pelvic floor structures may play a role in preserving continence. In this study we aimed to analyze reflex pelvic floor activity on coughing in women seen for urodynamic testing.In a retrospective cohort study we analyzed the data sets of 191 women who attended a tertiary referral service for multichannel (...) urodynamic testing and four-dimensional pelvic floor ultrasound scan between May 2009 and February 2010. Coughs were registered on volume ultrasound at a minimum of 16 Hz and analyzed by postprocessing at a later date, the operator being blinded against all clinical data.Of 175 analyzable cough volume datasets, a levator reflex was seen in 138 (79%), and clitoral reflex movement in 160 (91%).

74. The use of behavioral contracting to increase exercise activity. (PubMed)

The use of behavioral contracting to increase exercise activity. Abstract A cardiovascular risk reduction program used a submaximal treadmill stress test to evaluate physical fitness. Of the 179 individuals who participated in the health education counseling activities which followed testing, 96 signed a behavioral contract to engage in a 12-week aerobic exercise program. Forty-one contractors fully met contract goals, and 21 reported increased activity levels. Analyses examined demographic (...) , risk factor, and attitudinal predictors of contract signing and contract adherence. Contract signing was related to education, smoking, and women's mean body weight. Only women's body weight was related to contract adherence. Attitudes toward exercise were related to neither. Level of contract adherence was significantly related to a decrease in exercising heart rate at the six-month follow-up assessment. These data suggest that contract signing may be a useful device for assessing client
