62. A Randomized Controlled Double-Masked Study of Transdermal Androgen in Dry Eye Patients Associated with Androgen Deficiency. (Abstract)

A Randomized Controlled Double-Masked Study of Transdermal Androgen in Dry Eye Patients Associated with Androgen Deficiency. To evaluate the efficacy, safety, and quality of life (QOL) of transdermal androgen in treatment of dry eye patients associated with androgen deficiency.Randomized controlled trial.Fifty patients with dry eye from a tertiary eye center in northern Thailand were randomized to receive transdermal androgen (AndroGel; Besins Healthcare, Brussels, Belgium) or placebo for 4 (...)  weeks. Main outcome measures were symptoms and signs of dry eye. Serum level of sex hormone and QOL questionnaires were also evaluated at the baseline and after treatment.After 4 weeks, the Ocular Surface Disease Index decreased significantly in the AndroGel group compared to the placebo (-14.36 ± 7.76 vs 0.14 ± 14.60, P < .001). Significant improvements of tear break-up time (7.40 ± 3.37 vs -1.14 ± 1.68 seconds, P < .001), corneal fluorescein staining (-0.62 ± 0.30 vs 0.19 ± 0.37, P < .001

63. Assessment of Dry Epidermal Electrodes for Long-Term Electromyography Measurements Full Text available with Trip Pro

Assessment of Dry Epidermal Electrodes for Long-Term Electromyography Measurements Commercially available electrodes can only provide quality surface electromyography (sEMG) measurements for a limited duration due to user discomfort and signal degradation, but in many applications, collecting sEMG data for a full day or longer is desirable to enhance clinical care. Few studies for long-term sEMG have assessed signal quality of electrodes using clinically relevant tests. The goal (...) the ESS and traditional electrodes were strongly correlated across tasks. Measures of signal quality, such as signal-to-noise ratio and signal-to-motion ratio, were also similar for both electrodes. Over the four-day trial, no significant decrease in signal quality was observed in the ESS electrodes, suggesting that thin, flexible electrodes may provide a robust tool that does not inhibit movement or irritate the skin for long-term measurements of muscle activity in rehabilitation and other

65. Severe Dry Eye With Combined Mechanisms is Involved in the Ocular Sequelae of SJS/TEN at the Chronic Stage. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Severe Dry Eye With Combined Mechanisms is Involved in the Ocular Sequelae of SJS/TEN at the Chronic Stage. Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), and its more severe variant, toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), are life-threatening diseases of the skin and mucous membranes. After the acute-stage damage subsides, serious visual impairment and severe dry eye remains as ocular sequelae. At the acute stage, ocular complications occur in 77% of SJS/TEN patients. In cases with pseudomembranous formation (...) and/or epithelial defects, the risk of ocular sequelae increases. Among 13 slit-lamp microscopy images that we obtained of SJS/TEN patients at the chronic stage, the loss of corneal epithelial stem cells and severe meibomian gland involvement were found to be the most common disorders. Severe dry eye in SJS includes three important mechanisms: (1) aqueous tear deficiency, (2) decreased wettability of corneal surface, and (3) increased evaporation. Dry eye severity in SJS patients is often underestimated when

SHORT-TERM EFFECTS OF TRIGGER POINT DRY NEEDLING ON PAIN AND DISABILITY IN SUBJECTS WITH PATELLOFEMORAL PAIN SYNDROME Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is a prevalent knee disorder. A novel yet increasingly popular treatment for PFPS is trigger point dry needling (DN).The purpose of this study was to determine if DN is more effective at reducing pain and disability than a sham treatment in individuals with PFPS.Randomized trial.Sixty military health care beneficiaries (36 males (...) ) with a clinical diagnosis of PFPS were recruited and completed the study. Subjects underwent a standardized clinical examination and were randomized into a DN or sham treatment group. DN treatment consisted of insertion of an acupuncture-like needle into six sites in the quadriceps femoris muscles of the symptomatic lower extremity based on a palpation examination. The sham grouped received a simulated treatment with a sharp object and needle guide tube without puncturing the skin. Self-reports of pain

67. Analysis of Consistency of Transthoracic Bioimpedance Measurements Acquired with Dry Carbon Black PDMS Electrodes, Adhesive Electrodes, and Wet Textile Electrodes Full Text available with Trip Pro

Analysis of Consistency of Transthoracic Bioimpedance Measurements Acquired with Dry Carbon Black PDMS Electrodes, Adhesive Electrodes, and Wet Textile Electrodes The detection of intrathoracic volume retention could be crucial to the early detection of decompensated heart failure (HF). Transthoracic Bioimpedance (TBI) measurement is an indirect, promising approach to assessing intrathoracic fluid volume. Gel-based adhesive electrodes can produce skin irritation, as the patient needs to place (...) them daily in the same spots. Textile electrodes can reduce skin irritation; however, they inconveniently require wetting before each use and provide poor adherence to the skin. Previously, we developed waterproof reusable dry carbon black polydimethylsiloxane (CB/PDMS) electrodes that exhibited a good response to motion artifacts. We examined whether these CB/PDMS electrodes were suitable sensing components to be embedded into a monitoring vest for measuring TBI and the electrocardiogram (ECG). We

of low-cost sham dry needles and evaluates their validity. Forty-two healthy asymptomatic subjects received either sham or real dry needling intervention to their right gluteal muscles and reported if they felt that the needle pierced the skin. They also graded the severity and qualified (sharp or dull) the pain associated with the intervention. The results showed that most of the subjects in both groups believed the needle penetrated the skin. The quantity of pain associated with the treatment (...) The Construction of Sham Dry Needles and Their Validity. Appropriate control interventions are necessary to show the treatment effect of dry needling. Different control procedures, such as dry needling of the contralateral side, and sham treatments, such as random and superficial needle insertion, have been utilized in trials. However, those methods might elicit a physiological response and are subsequently not ideal for use as a control. This descriptive study illustrates the construction

Once the needle is inserted subcutaneously, the guide tube is removed. The controller deepens the needle to myofascial trigger point, and makes fast inputs and outputs into it.

Once this hemostasis is completed, the patient is incorporated and dressed. Placebo Comparator: Sham technique in tibialis posterior Placebo tibialis dry needling

Randomized, double-blind study comparing percutaneous electrolysis and dry needling for the management of temporomandibular myofascial pain To assess whether the techniques of percutaneous needle electrolysis (PNE) and deep dry needling (DDN) used on trigger points (TrP) of lateral pterygoid muscle (LPM) can significantly reduce pain and improve function in patients with myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) compared to a control group treated with a sham needling procedure (SNP).Sixty patients (...) diagnosed with MPS in the LPM were selected and randomly assigned to one of three groups. The PNE group received electrolysis to the LPM via transcutaneous puncture. The DDN group received a deep puncture to the TrP without the introduction of any substance. In the SNP group, pressure was applied to the skin without penetration. Procedures were performed once per week for 3 consecutive weeks. Clinical evaluation was performed before treatment, and on days 28, 42 and 70 after treatment.Statistically

Procedure: Sham Dry Needling In addition to the standard PT treatment, patients in the sham DN group will receive what appears to be a DN treatment, but it will not be done with the acupuncture needles and the skin will not be punctured. The Sham DN procedure will be performed over the site of identified MTrPs using a guide tube and a toothpick. A guide tube is positioned firmly over the area (...) to be treated and a toothpick is inserted in the guide tube. The clinician taps the toothpick to mimic the skin prick from a needle and the guide tube is removed. The clinician maintains pressure on the end of the toothpick and moves the end furthest from the skin in different directions to mimic the pistoning and changes in needle angle that occur in actual dry needling. Care will be taken to treat from 1-3 muscle groups for 5-10 seconds per MrTP identified. Outcome Measures Go to Primary Outcome Measures
