161. ACUTE EFFECTS OF TWO HIP FLEXOR STRETCHING TECHNIQUES ON KNEE JOINT POSITION SENSE AND BALANCE (Full text)

ACUTE EFFECTS OF TWO HIP FLEXOR STRETCHING TECHNIQUES ON KNEE JOINT POSITION SENSE AND BALANCE Tightness of hip flexor muscles has been recognized as a risk factor for various musculoskeletal injuries in the lower extremities.The purpose of this study was to examine the acute effects of two hip flexor stretching techniques (dynamic and hold-relax proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, HR-PNF) on hip extension (ROM), knee joint position sense (JPS) and balance in healthy college age students (...) was utilized to explore if an interaction existed between the groups in tested variables.There was a significant effect of time on hip extension ROM in both groups (p < 0.001). There was also a significant effect of stretch type on hip extension ROM (p = 0.004) favoring hold-relax over dynamic stretching group. There was a non-significant effect of time on mean knee joint position replication error in both groups. There was a significant main effect of time on the Y-Balance test's mean distance of reach

162. Transurethral resection of bladder cancer on the lateral bladder wall without obturator nerve block: extent of adductor spasms using the monopolar versus bipolar technique-a prospective randomised study. (PubMed)

Transurethral resection of bladder cancer on the lateral bladder wall without obturator nerve block: extent of adductor spasms using the monopolar versus bipolar technique-a prospective randomised study. To establish whether bipolar transurethral resection of tumours (bTURB) on the lateral bladder wall is superior to monopolar transurethral resection (mTURB) of such tumours. To our knowledge, this is the first prospective randomised study, which defines complete resection depending on obturator (...) jerk as primary endpoint.In a prospective, randomised, single centre study, 52 patients with newly diagnosed or recurrent bladder tumour on the lateral bladder wall were enrolled and randomised to undergo mTURB or bTURB; 44 patients were eligible for analysis, of whom 21 underwent mTURB and 23 bTURB. Any differences between the two techniques related to the incidence of unwanted stimulation of the obturator nerve and subsequent adductor spasms were evaluated.

163. Evaluation of skeletal muscle microvascular perfusion of lower extremities by cardiovascular magnetic resonance arterial spin labeling, blood oxygenation level-dependent, and intravoxel incoherent motion techniques. (Full text)

Evaluation of skeletal muscle microvascular perfusion of lower extremities by cardiovascular magnetic resonance arterial spin labeling, blood oxygenation level-dependent, and intravoxel incoherent motion techniques. Noninvasive cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) techniques including arterial spin labeling (ASL), blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD), and intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM), are capable of measuring tissue perfusion-related parameters. We sought to evaluate and compare (...) these three CMR techniques in characterizing skeletal muscle perfusion in lower extremities and to investigate their abilities to diagnose and assess the severity of peripheral arterial disease (PAD).Fifteen healthy young subjects, 14 patients with PAD, and 10 age-matched healthy old subjects underwent ASL, BOLD, and IVIM CMR perfusion imaging. Healthy young and healthy old participants were subjected to a cuff-induced ischemia experiment with pressures of 20 mmHg and 40 mmHg above systolic pressure

They then viewed a picture of a chocolate bar for 3 min whilst either applying the decentering technique or letting their mind wander (control). Finally, all participants completed 20 letter strings, rated their motivation for weight loss and for healthy eating, and indicated whether or not they were dieting to lose weight. As predicted, those who had applied the decentering technique produced a greater number of health and weight loss (...) A Mindfulness-Based Decentering Technique Increases the Cognitive Accessibility of Health and Weight Loss Related Goals Previous research has shown that a mindfulness-based decentering technique can help individuals resist eating chocolate over a 5-day period. However, it is unclear how this technique exerts its effect. This study explored one potential mechanism; that decentering increases the cognitive accessibility of relevant goals. Male and female participants (n = 90) spent 5 min

Temporal Courses in EEG Theta and Alpha Activity in the Dynamic Health Qigong Techniques Wu Qin Xi and Liu Zi Jue Health Qigong is a common technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine applied to strengthen mental and physical health. Several studies report increases in EEG theta and alpha activity after meditative Qigong techniques indicating a relaxed state of mind. To date, little is known on the effects of dynamic Health Qigong techniques that comprise bodily movements on brain activity (...) . In the current study, we compared effects of two dynamic Health Qigong techniques on EEG brain activity. Subjects performed the techniques Wu Qin Xi (five animals play) and Liu Zi Jue (six healing sounds) in a within-subjects design. Eyes-open and eyes-closed resting EEG was recorded before and immediately after each 15-min practice block. Additionally, the Profile of Mood States (POMS) questionnaire was administered at pretest, and after each 15-min practice block. Results show a decrease in alpha activity

Substructure determination using phase-retrieval techniques Thus far, the application of phase-retrieval methods in crystallography has mainly been aimed at variants of charge flipping or structure-factor flipping. In this work, the relaxed averaged alternating reflections (RAAR) algorithm is applied to determine anomalously scattering substructures from single-wavelength anomalous diffraction (SAD) data of macromolecules. The algorithm has been implemented in a new program, PRASA, and has been

the accuracy and reproducibility of examination maneuvers such as the load-shift test. We propose an arthroscopic modification to the load-shift technique involving direct visualization to assess the direction and degree of shoulder instability. Our technique allows for the examination of a fully relaxed, anesthetized patient, eliminating guarding, and allows for intraoperative documentation of the patient's laxity both before and after surgical stabilization. In addition, this allows for custom titration (...) Arthroscopic Load-Shift Technique for Intraoperative Assessment of Shoulder Translation Shoulder instability represents a spectrum of disease, ranging from subluxation to dislocation. It may present acutely after trauma or chronically as a result of multiple events. Physical examination is a key component in evaluating the degree of instability and laxity present; however, in-office guarding or apprehension may limit the examination. In addition, patient anatomy or operator technique may limit

Closed reduction of the traumatic posterior-dislocation of hip joint using a novel sitting technique: A case series. Traumatic hip dislocation is a common joint dislocation. Delayed reduction has been shown to increase the risk of avascular necrosis of the femoral head. Most of the traditional methods must be performed under general anesthesia or spinal anesthesia to relax hip muscles. Anesthesia will prolong the interval between the injury and the reduction.16 patients presented with hip pain (...) and a leg shortened, flexed, internally rotated and adducted.X-ray and CT-scan showed acute closed posterior dislocation of hip.Closed reduction of the traumatic posterior-dislocation of hip joint using a novel sitting technique.Among these 16 patients, 15 hips were successfully reduced using the Sitting Technique (table 1), indicating the success rate was 93.8%(15/16).
