ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Introduction Among the many cases of sports injuries, the incidence of musculoskeletal injuries remains high. After a musculoskeletal injury occurs, athletes often need to suspend training and undergo rehabilitation. A suitable sport mode requires athletes to have sufficient joint range of motion, core stability, and balance ability in different positions to complete various complex movements in training and competition. Objective The paper analyzes the impact of warm-up exercises before the test on the test results of functional sports biological image data screening ( FMS TM ) and provides references for unifying test conditions, checking the reliability of FMS TM repeated tests, and discussing the comparability of the research results. Methods The paper used the same password and process to test 12 young male volleyball professional athletes without warm-up and warm-up. The two-dimensional motion analysis system Dartfish Pursuit 8.0 was used to analyze the video data recorded by the two cameras simultaneously. Results In the two tests before and after, the hurdle step score (1.75±0.62 vs. 2.42±0.52) and the total score (13.50±2.20 vs. 16.42±2.15) were significantly higher than those without the warm-up test (P<0.01). Besides, in squats (1.58±0.67 vs. 1.92±0.67), straight lunges (2.00±0.43 vs. 2.50±0.52), active straight leg lifts (1.50±0.67 vs. 2.00±0.60), rotation stability (1.42) ±0.52 vs. 1.92±0.29) showed a significant increase in the score (P<0.05). Conclusions Warm-up exercises before the test can improve the test results. This abnormal movement pattern observed only by visual inspection may not truly reflect the "dysfunction" of the movement. In the case of ignoring the pre-test warm-up factors, feedback on sports performance and formulating training strategies, this conclusion of predicting injury risk and evaluating training effects may have specific limitations in its reference value. Level of evidence II; Therapeutic studies - investigation of treatment results.


RESUMO Introdução Dentre os diversos casos de lesões esportivas, a incidência de lesões musculoesqueléticas permanece elevada. Após a ocorrência de uma lesão musculoesquelética, os atletas geralmente precisam suspender o treinamento e se submeter à reabilitação. Um modo de esporte adequado requer que os atletas tenham amplitude de movimento articular suficiente, estabilidade central e capacidade de equilíbrio em diferentes posições para completar vários movimentos complexos em treinamento e competição. Objetivo o artigo analisa o impacto dos exercícios de aquecimento antes do teste sobre os resultados dos testes de triagem de dados de imagens biológicas esportivas funcionais (FMSTM) e fornece referências para unificar as condições de teste, verificar a confiabilidade de testes FMSTM repetidos e discutir a comparabilidade dos resultados da pesquisa . Métodos O artigo utilizou a mesma senha e processo para testar 12 jovens atletas profissionais do sexo masculino de voleibol sem aquecimento e com aquecimento. O sistema de análise de movimento bidimensional Dartfish Pursuit 8.0 foi usado para analisar os dados de vídeo gravados pelas duas câmeras simultaneamente. Resultados Nos dois testes antes e depois, a pontuação do hurdle step (1,75 ± 0,62 vs. 2,42 ± 0,52) e a pontuação total (13,50 ± 2,20 vs. 16,42 ± 2,15) foram significativamente maiores do que aqueles sem o teste de aquecimento ( P <0,01). Além disso, em agachamentos (1,58 ± 0,67 vs. 1,92 ± 0,67), estocadas retas (2,00 ± 0,43 vs. 2,50 ± 0,52), levantamentos ativos de perna reta (1,50 ± 0,67 vs. 2,00 ± 0,60), estabilidade de rotação (1,42) ± 0,52 vs. 1,92 ± 0,29) mostrou um aumento significativo na pontuação (P <0,05). Conclusão Os exercícios de aquecimento antes do teste podem melhorar os resultados do teste. Este padrão de movimento anormal observado apenas por inspeção visual pode não refletir verdadeiramente a "disfunção" do movimento. No caso de ignorar os fatores de aquecimento pré-teste, feedback sobre o desempenho esportivo e formulação de estratégias de treinamento, esta conclusão de prever o risco de lesões e avaliar os efeitos do treinamento pode ter limitações específicas em seu valor de referência. Nível de evidência II; Estudos terapêuticos - investigação dos resultados do tratamento.

ABSTRACT

Maneuvers to activate the equine's core can make a difference in their physical and psychic health. Although these activities are recommended and practiced, there is little research proving their effectiveness. This article aims to describe, through surface electromyography, the occurrences, durations and sequences activity of longissimus dorsi, rectus abdominis and gluteus medius during thoracolumbar flexion (TLF), lumbar and lumbosacral flexion (LLSF), global flexion (GF), which is the combination of TLF and LLSF, and tail traction (TT). Seven healthy adult horses of three different breeds performed five repetitions of these movements for five seconds (sec). Electromyographic activity was captured with non-invasive superficial sensors positioned in the skin regions covering these muscles. The sequence was performed once per animal, muscle activity captured by surface electromyography, data from two replicates of each animal were selected, analyzed on matLab software and data tabulation were described during each maneuver. These maneuvers provoked punctual and transient activation of muscles mentioned above, confirming the ability to activate equine core muscles. However, responses were not standardized, which means there were variations of occurrence, duration and sequence, suggesting that for practical application of those maneuvers it is necessary to perform more repetitions with longer durations to activate more muscles.(AU)


Manobras para ativação da musculatura do core equino podem ser diferenciais para saúde física e psíquica dos animais, sendo recomendadas e praticadas, mas existem poucas pesquisas comprovando a eficácia delas. Este artigo tem como objetivo descrever, por meio da eletromiografia de superfície, as ocorrências, as durações e as sequências temporais da atividade muscular do longuíssimo dorsal, do reto abdominal e do glúteo médio durante a realização das manobras de flexão toracolombar, flexão lombar e lombossacra, flexão global (toracolombar e lombossacra) e tração de cauda. Para isso, sete equinos adultos e hígidos de três raças realizaram esses quatro movimentos clássicos para ativar o core equino, com cinco repetições e manutenção do estímulo reflexivo por cinco segundos. Durante a realização, a atividade eletromiográfica foi capturada com a utilização de sensores superficiais posicionados de forma não invasiva em regiões cutâneas referentes a cada músculo. O protocolo completo de manobras foi realizado uma vez por cada animal enquanto a atividade muscular era capturada. Posteriormente, duas repetições de cada animal foram triadas e submetidas ao software matLab para análise. Com base na tabulação dos dados, foram descritas as variáveis eletromiográficas de presença ou ausência de ativação muscular, a duração média dos picos eletromiográficos superiores ao RMS (root mean square) e a sequência da atividade muscular observada durante cada manobra. Essas manobras provocaram ativações pontuais e transitórias nos três músculos, o que confirma a capacidade de excitar músculos do core equino. Contudo, as respostas não foram padronizadas, sugerindo que, na prática dessa atividade, devem-se realizar mais repetições com durações superiores a cinco segundos, a fim de se buscarem maiores ativações.(AU)

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To assess the impact of stiffness associated with lumbar spinal fusion on disability and quality of life. Methods: This is a retrospective study including 40 patients (mean age: 57.7 ± 16.2) who underwent spinal surgery with fusion including the lumbar segment and a minimum of 24-month postoperative follow-up. The version translated and adapted to Portuguese of the Lumbar Stiffness Disability Index (LSDI) questionnaire was applied to assess the disability associated with stiffness secondary to lumbar spinal fusion. To quantify postoperative clinical lumbar stiffness / mobility, the Modified-Modified Schober Test (MMST) was applied. Results: There was a moderate negative correlation (r = -0.320), but significant (p = 0.04), between the MMST value and the LSDI score. The average of LSDI score in patients with extension of spinal fusion to the sacrum was higher than in patients without extension to the sacrum (p = 0.002), indicating greater disability in those with extension to the sacrum. Conclusions: In patients undergoing lumbar spinal fusion, the disability related to lumbar stiffness, measured by the LSDI score, was directly related to clinical lumbar stiffness, measured by the modified-modified Schöber test. The inclusion of the sacrum in fusion showed an association with worsening of disability related to lumbar stiffness. Level of evidence III; Retrospective analysis.


RESUMO Objetivo: Avaliar o impacto da rigidez associada a artrodese lombar sobre a capacidade funcional e qualidade de vida. Métodos: Trata-se de um estudo retrospectivo que incluiu 40 pacientes (média de idade: 57,7±16,2) submetidos a cirurgia da coluna vertebral com artrodese incluindo o segmento lombar, com mínimo de seguimento pós-operatório de 24 meses. A versão traduzida e adaptada paro o Português do questionário Lumbar Stiffness Disability Index (LSDI) foi aplicada para avaliar as limitações funcionais associadas à rigidez secundária à artrodese lombar. Para quantificar a rigidez/mobilidade clínica lombar pós-operatória, foi aplicado o teste modificado-modificado de Schöber (TMMS). Resultados: Houve correlação negativa moderada (r= -0,320), porém significativa (p= 0,04), entre o valor do TMMS e o escore LSDI. A média do escore LSDI dos pacientes com extensão da artrodese ao sacro foi maior que nos pacientes sem extensão ao sacro (p= 0,002), indicando maior limitação funcional naqueles com extensão ao sacro. Conclusões: Em pacientes submetidos à artrodese da coluna lombar, a capacidade funcional relacionada a rigidez lombar, medida pelo escore LSDI, se mostrou diretamente relacionada com a rigidez lombar clínica, medida pelo teste modificado-modificado de Schöber. A inclusão do sacro na artrodese mostrou associação com piora da capacidade funcional relacionada à rigidez lombar. Nível de evidência III; Análise retrospectiva.


RESUMEN Objetivo: Evaluar el impacto de la rigidez asociada con la artrodesis lumbar en la capacidad funcional y la calidad de vida. Métodos: Este es un estudio retrospectivo que incluyó 40 pacientes (edad media: 57.7 ± 16.2) que se sometieron a cirugía del artrodesis de la columna, incluido el segmento lumbar, con un mínimo de 24 meses de seguimiento postoperatorio. La versión traducida y adaptada al portugués del cuestionario Lumbar Stiffness Disability Index (LSDI) se aplicó para evaluar las limitaciones funcionales asociadas con la rigidez secundaria a la artrodesis lumbar. Para cuantificar la rigidez / movilidad clínica lumbar postoperatoria, se aplicó la prueba modificada-modificada de Schöber (PMMS). Resultados: Hubo una correlación negativa moderada (r = -0.320), pero significativa (p = 0.04), entre el valor del PMMS y el puntaje LSDI. El puntaje promedio de LSDI de pacientes con extensión de artrodesis al sacro fue mayor que en pacientes sin extensión al sacro (p = 0.002), lo que indica una mayor limitación funcional en aquellos con extensión al sacro. Conclusiones: En pacientes sometidos a artrodesis de columna lumbar, se demostró que la capacidad funcional relacionada con la rigidez lumbar, medida por el puntaje LSDI, estaba directamente relacionada con la rigidez clínica lumbar, medida por prueba modificada-modificada de Schöber. La inclusión del sacro en la artrodesis mostró una asociación con el empeoramiento de la capacidad funcional relacionada con la rigidez lumbar. Nivel de evidencia III; Análisis retrospectivo.

ABSTRACT

A aptidão física se relaciona com marcadores de saúde na infância. O objetivo do presente estudo é mensurar os níveis de aptidão física de escolares, de 10 anos, de acordo com as classificações da base de dados do Projeto Esporte Brasil, 2016 e comparar os resultados das avaliações entre os escolares da rede pública e privada. Participaram desse estudo cento e vinte e seis escolares das cidades de Leme e Pirassununga. Foram determinados o Índice de Massa Corporal e Razão Cintura-Estatura dos indivíduos, que também foram avaliados quanto à aptidão cardiorrespiratória, flexibilidade, resistência muscular abdominal, potência de membros superiores, potência de membros inferiores, agilidade e velocidade. Concluímos que os estudantes da rede pública de ensino apresentaram nível de aptidão física superior em detrimento aos estudantes da rede particular e que os estudantes do sexo masculino da rede privada obtiveram resultados considerados abaixo dos níveis saudáveis para a faixa etária.


Physical fitness is related to health markers in childhood. The aim of this study is to measure the physical fitness levels of 10-year-old schoolchildren according to the classifications in the 2016 Projeto Esporte Brasil database and to compare the results among public and private schoolchildren. One hundred and twenty-six schoolchildren from the cities of Leme and Pirassununga took part in this study. The Body Mass Index and Waist-to-Height Ratio of the individuals were determined. The children were also evaluated for cardiorespiratory fitness, flexibility, abdominal muscle resistance, upper limb power, lower limb power, agility, and speed. It could be concluded that students from the public school system presented a higher level of physical fitness when compared to those from the private system, and that male students from the private school system presented results which were considered below the healthy levels for that age group.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCCIÓN: La artrodesis de cuatro esquinas es una técnica de salvataje para los pacientes con artrosis avanzada del carpo. Los objetivos quirúrgicos son disminuir el dolor y mantener cierto movimiento de la muñeca. En el último tiempo, se han descrito técnicas percutáneas con asistencia artroscópica que han logrado resultados favorables, a pesar de que la técnica abierta sigue siendo el gold estándar para realizar esa técnica quirúrgica. OBJETIVO: Comparar resultados funcionales y radiológicos en pacientes con muñecas con colapso avanzado escafolunar (scapholunate advanced collapse, SLAC) o colapso avanzado en la pseudoartrosis del escafoides (scaphoid nonunion advanced collapse, SNAC) operados con técnica quirúrgica abierta versus técnica percutánea con asistencia artroscópica. MATERIALES Y MÉTODOS: Estudio retrospectivo tipo caso-control, de fichas clínicas e imagenología de pacientes con artrosis avanzada del carpo operados con técnica percutánea y asistencia artroscópica y cirugía abierta. Se estudian variables demográficas, dolor mediante la Escala Visual Analógica (EVA), función en rangos de movilidad, tiempo de consolidación, y corrección del ángulo capitolunar. Se describe la técnica quirúrgica de la cirugía abierta y la cirugía percutánea con asistencia artroscópica. RESULTADOS: Se estudiaron 22 pacientes del sexo masculino con edad promedio de 32,5 años. Había 13 pacientes en el grupo de casos (técnica percutánea con asistencia artroscópica) y 9 pacientes en el grupo de controles (técnica abierta). El dolor en la EVA al momento del egreso hospitalario fue de 3 para los casos y de 5 para los controles (p » 0,008), y a los 30 días del postoperatorio, fue de 0 y 3 respectivamente (p » 0,00). Los rangos de extensión y flexión fueron de 52,6° y 38,7° para los casos y de 35,7° y 32,4° para los controles (p » 0,1119 y 0,0016, respectivamente). El ángulo capitolunar fue de 10° para los controles y de 5° para los casos (p » 0,0008). El tiempo de consolidación fue de 8,8 semanas para los casos y de 12,5 semanas para los controles (p » 0,039). DISCUSIÓN: Tanto la técnica percutánea con asistencia artroscópica cuanto la cirugía abierta para realizar una artrodesis de cuatro esquinas son técnicas reproducibles y efectivas en lograr consolidación, disminución del dolor, y mantenimiento de rangos de movimiento en la muñeca. CONCLUSIÓN: En el presente trabajo se demuestran mejores promedios de los parámetros evaluados con la técnica percutánea que con la cirugía abierta; sin embargo, es necesario realizar estudios prospectivos para realizar una recomendación con respecto a la técnica quirúrgica de elección.


INTRODUCTION: Four-corner arthrodesis is a salvage technique for patients with advanced carpal osteoarthritis. This procedure aims to reduce pain and preserve wrist motion. Even though percutaneous techniques with arthroscopic assistance reportedly have favorable outcomes and the advantages of minimal invasiveness, open surgery remains the gold standard for four-corner arthrodesis. OBJECTIVE: The present study aims to compare the functional and radiological outcomes of patients with scapholunate advanced collapse (SLAC) or scaphoid nonunion advanced collapse (SNAC) submitted to open surgery versus percutaneous surgery with arthroscopic assistance. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective case-control study of clinical records and radiological images of patients with advanced carpal osteoarthritis submitted to percutaneous surgery with arthroscopic assistance versus open surgery. Demographic variables, pain score using the visual analog scale (VAS), function ranges of motion, time until consolidation, and correction of the capitolunate angle were analyzed. Both techniques are described. RESULTS: In total, 22 male patients with an average age of 32.5 years were studied, including 13 patients from the case group (percutaneous surgery with arthroscopic assistance) and 9 patients from the control group (open surgery). The VAS score for pain at discharge was of 3 for the cases and of 5 for the controls (p » 0.008); 30 days postoperatively, it was of 0 and 3 respectively (p » 0.00). The ranges of extension and flexion were of 52.6° and 38.7° for the case group, and of 35.7° and 32.4° for the control group (p » 0.119 and 0.0016 respectively). The capitolunate angle was of 10° for the controls and of 5° for the cases (p » 0.0008). The time until consolidation was of 8.8 weeks for the cases and of 12.5 weeks for the controls (p » 0.039). DISCUSSION: Both four-corner arthrodesis techniques are reproducible and effective in achieving consolidation, pain reduction and preservation of wrist motion. CONCLUSION: The present study demonstrates the superiority of the percutaneous technique with arthroscopic assistance over open surgery. Further prospective studies are required for an adequate recommendation.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To compare clinical efficacy and safety of plate internal fixation (ORIF) and external fixator (EF) in treating distal radius fractures by Meta-analysis.@*METHODS@#From establishment of database to August, 2019, randomized controlled trial (RCT) about open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) and external fixation (EF) in treating distal radius fractures was conducted by using computer-based databases, including CNKI, VIP, Wanfang Data, Medline, Cochrane library databases. Data extraction and quality evaluation of included study according to inclusion and exclusion criteria, RevMan 5.3 software was used to perform Meta-analysis. Palm angle, ulnar deflection angle, radius height, grip strength, ulnar variation, disabilities of arm, shoulder and hand (DASH) score, total complication rate, infection rate and tendon rupture between two groups were compared.@*RESULTS@#Totally 19 RCT were included with 1 730 patients, 873 patients in ORIF group and 857 patients in EF group. Meta analysis result showed that after operation at 12 months, there were no significant difference in radial height [@*CONCLUSION@#Compared with EF in treating distal radius fracture, ORIF has better clinical effects in postoperative complications, palm angle, ulnar deviation angle, ulnar variation rate and infection rate. While there were no significant difference between in DASH score, radial height, tendon rupture and carpal tunnel syndrome better EF and ORIF. For the patient pursue rapid recovery of function, ORIF is better choice.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND@#The open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) was a standard treatment approach for fracture at distal humerus intercondylar, whereas the optimal way before ORIF remains inconclusive. We, therefore, performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the efficacy and safety of olecranon osteotomy vs. triceps-sparing approach for patients with distal humerus intercondylar fracture.@*METHODS@#The electronic searches were systematically performed in PubMed, EmBase, Cochrane library, and Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure from initial inception till December 2019. The primary endpoint was the incidence of excellent/good elbow function, and the secondary endpoints included Mayo elbow performance score, duration of operation, blood loss, and complications.@*RESULTS@#Nine studies involving a total of 637 patients were selected for meta-analysis. There were no significant differences between olecranon osteotomy and triceps-sparing approach for the incidence of excellent/good elbow function (odds ratio [OR]: 1.37; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.69-2.75; P = 0.371), Mayo elbow performance score (weight mean difference [WMD]: 0.17; 95% CI: -2.56 to 2.89; P = 0.904), duration of operation (WMD: 4.04; 95% CI: -28.60 to 36.69; P = 0.808), blood loss (WMD: 33.61; 95% CI: -18.35 to 85.58; P = 0.205), and complications (OR: 1.93; 95% CI: 0.49-7.60; P = 0.349). Sensitivity analyses found olecranon osteotomy might be associated with higher incidence of excellent/good elbow function, longer duration of operation, greater blood loss, and higher incidence of complications as compared with triceps-sparing approach.@*CONCLUSIONS@#This study found olecranon osteotomy did not yield additional benefit on the incidence of excellent/good elbow function, while the duration of operation, blood loss, and complications in patients treated with olecranon osteotomy might be inferior than triceps-sparing approach.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: El objetivo de este trabajo es describir e identificar variables determinantes de la progresión del rango de movilidad articular (RMA) postoperatorio en artroplastia total de rodilla primaria (ATRp). Materiales y métodos: estudio prospectivo de pacientes con gonartrosis, operados de ATRp por un mismo equipo quirúrgico, implante y protocolo de rehabilitación. Se excluyeron pacientes con seguimiento menor a seis meses. Se midió el RMA (extensión-flexión) preoperatorio, durante la hospitalización y al primer, tercer y sexto mes postoperatorio. Se definió RMA funcional y satisfactorio como 5-95º y 0-120º, respectivamente. El análisis estadístico incluyó modelos mixtos, buscando relación entre la progresión del RMA postoperatorio y variables demográficas, pre, intra y postoperatorias externas a la técnica quirúrgica (p < 0.05).Resultados: cincuenta pacientes (53 ATRp), edad mediana 68 (49-91), 75.5% mujeres. Al sexto mes, el 100% presentó un RMA funcional y un 72.2% un RMA satisfactorio. Un umbral de 105º de flexión al tercer mes fue significativo para discriminar aquellos pacientes que alcanzaron un RMA favorable al sexto mes (sensibilidad = 97.1%; especificidad = 75%). Conclusión: la progresión del RMA postoperatorio de ATRp fue determinante del RMA satisfactorio (0-120º) a los seis meses. Un umbral de 105º de flexión al tercer mes postoperatorio posee una excelente capacidad de identificar aquellos pacientes que no lograrán el RMA apropiado. Nivel de Evidencia: Estudio pronóstico Nivel I


Introduction: This study aims to describe and identify determinants for the postoperative RMA progression after a primary total knee arthroplasty (pTKA).Materials and methods: prospective study in patients with knee osteoarthritis who underwent pTKA. Patients were operated by the same surgical team, implant, and followed the same rehabilitation protocol. Exclusion criteria included a follow-up of less than six months. The RMA (extension-flexion) was evaluated preoperatively, during the hospital stay, and postoperatively (first, third and sixth months). Functional and satisfactory RMA were established as 5-95º and 0-120º, respectively. Statistical analysis included mixed models for association between postoperative RMA and demographic, pre, intra, and postoperative non-related surgical technique variables (p < 0.05).Results: fifty patients (53 pTKA), median age 68 (49-91), 75.5% females. At six months, 100% of patients presented with functional RMA, and 72.2% with satisfactory RMA. A threshold of 105º of flexion at the third postoperative month, was statistically significant for identifying patients who achieved an acceptable RMA at six months (sensitivity = 97.1%; specificity = 75%).Conclusions: the postoperative RMA progression was determinant for a satisfactory RMA at six months after pTKA. A threshold of 105º of flexion at the third postoperative month has an excellent accuracy to identify patients who will not achieve an acceptable RMA. Level of Evidence: Prognostic study Level I

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES: Arthrocentesis is the simplest surgical intervention for the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). It can be performed on an outpatient basis at a low cost and with low morbidity. The objective is to release the articular disc by disrupting the adhesion formed between its surfaces and the mandibular fossa through hydraulic pressure generated by irrigation of the upper compartment of the TMJ. Viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid during or after arthrocentesis improves clinical outcomes, increases mouth opening, and reduces pain levels. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of arthrocentesis plus hyaluronic acid viscosupplementation through clinical examination and preoperative magnetic resonance imaging in patients with unilateral disc displacement without reduction (DDwoR). METHODS: This analytical retrospective cross-sectional study clinically and radiologically evaluated 72 patients of both sexes with unilateral DDwoR. The following data were collected: sex, pain, age, duration of pain, maximum mouth opening, and patient pain perception on a visual analog scale. TMJ arthrocentesis was performed only once for each of the indicated joints. Data were collected before arthrocentesis (baseline) and at 7, 14, 30, 60, 90, and 180 days after the procedure (final evaluation). RESULTS: Between the baseline and final evaluation, there was a significant reduction in pain (p=0.001) and restoration of articular function. In addition, there was a significant increase in maximum mouth opening (p=0.001). CONCLUSION: Patients with DDwoR undergoing arthrocentesis combined with hyaluronic acid injection showed significant improvement in the perceived pain and maximum mouth opening in the mid-term follow-up periods.

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: evaluar la rehabilitación funcional de la ATM en pacientes con osteoartrosis, con abordaje neuromuscular. La osteoartrosis se caracteriza por la degeneración del cartílago articular y la cortical ósea, que conduce a dolor e inmovilidad. Se incluyó a 8 mujeres entre 20 y 42 años de edad con dolor en la región orofacial, signos de oclusión disfuncional e imágenes compatibles con trastornos degenerativos en ATM. Clínicamente se evaluó el dolor y la oclusión y, mediante tecnología electrónica, se obtuvieron datos objetivos de los movimientos de apertura-cierre y lateralidades, la velocidad de apertura-cierre mandibulares y de los ruidos articulares. Las mediciones fueron realizadas al inicio y al finalizar el tratamiento de estabilización mandibular con una ortosis neuromuscular. Para determinar la significación estadística se utilizaron el Student`s test de comparaciones múltiples y el análisis de varianza, ANOVA, de un factor. Las diferencias entre medias se consideraron significativas con p <0.05. Los resultados demostraron ausencia de dolor en el 100% de los casos al primer mes de tratamiento. Se incrementaron la apertura bucal (6,73 mm promedio), ambas lateralidades (P=0.0023), velocidad en apertura y en cierre (no estadísticamente significativo). Después de estabilizar la mandíbula se redujo la frecuencia de los ruidos. En conclusión, la oclusión dental disfuncional es el principal factor etiológico de la artrosis de la ATM. El establecimiento de una oclusión fisiológica produce la descompresión de la ATM, aumenta el rango de los movimientos mandibulares y disminuye significativamente el dolor (AU)


Objective: to evaluate the functional rehabilitation of the TMJ in patients with osteoarthritis, with a neuromuscular approach. Osteoarthrosis is characterized by degeneration of articular cartilage and bone cortex, which leads to pain and immobility. Eight women between 20 and 42 years of age with pain in the orofacial region, signs of dysfunctional occlusion, and images consistent with degenerative TMJ disorders were included. Clinically, pain and occlusion were evaluated and, using electronic technology, objective data were obtained on the opening-closing movements and lateralities, the opening-closing speed of the jaws and joint noises. Measurements were made before and at the end of the mandibular stabilization treatment with a neuromuscular orthosis. To determine the statistical significance, the Student`s multiple comparisons test and the analysis of variance, ANOVA, of one factor were used. The differences between means were considered significant with p <0.05. The results showed absence of pain pain in 100% of cases in the first month of treatment. Mouth opening (6.73 mm average), both lateralities (P = 0.0023), opening and closing speed (not statistically significant) were increased. After stabilizing the jaw the noise frequency value was reduced. In conclusion, dysfunctional dental occlusion is the main etiologic factor of TMJ osteoarthritis. Establishing a physiological occlusion causes TMJ decompression, increases the range of mandibular movements, and significantly decreases pain (AU)

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the clinical effect of anterior cervical Hybrid surgery in the treatment of cervical degenerative diseases (CDD) and observe the incidence of heterotopic ossification of disc replacement segment at 1 year after surgery.@*METHODS@#From January 2015 to April 2018, 35 patients who received anterior cervical hybrid surgery met the inclusion and exclusion criteria and the complete clinical follow up data were analyzed retrospectively. Complete imaging follow-up data were obtained from 24 patients. There were 15 males and 20 females, aged from 39 to 70(55.57±7.73) years old. The amount of bleeding was for 20 to 100 (40.29±18.39) ml, and the hospitalstay was for 4 to 28(11.03±4.63) days, and the follow-up time was(12.97±1.36) months. Clinical outcomes were assessed by the Tanaka Yasushi cervical spondylitis symptom scale 20 score (YT20), and Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) score. The occurrence of heterotopic ossification after Hybrid surgery was evaluated by X-ray according to McAfee standard one year after operation. Patients with or without heterotopic ossificationwere divided into two groups and their clinical effects were compared.@*RESULTS@#At the final follow up, the mean YT20 score and JOA score were significantly higher than those before operation (P <0.05), and the average improvement rate of JOA was (70.66 ±0.44)%. One year after operation, the heterotopic ossification occurred in 10 of 24 segments, with incidence of 41.70%(10/24), including 29.20% in gradeⅠand 12.50% in gradeⅡ. The results of clinical efficacy comparison between patients with and without heterotopic ossification were as follows:there was no significant difference in JOA score before and after operation (@*CONCLUSION@#The short-term clinical effect of Hybrid surgery is satisfactory for cervical degenerative diseases, and the cause of heterotopic ossification still needs tobe further explored.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the biomechanical affect of percutaneous transforaminal endoscopic discectomy(PTED) on adjacent segments with different degrees of degeneration and related risk of adjacent segment diseases (ASD) caused by this operation.@*METHODS@#A healthy male adult volunteer was selected, and the lumbosacral vertebra image data was obtained by CT scan, and the external contour of the bone structure was reconstructed. On this basis, the external contour of the bone structure was fitted by using the smooth curve in 3D-CAD software, and the complete three-dimensional finite element modelof the non degenerate L@*RESULTS@#In the finite element model without adjacent segmental disc degeneration, the annulus fibrosus von Mises stress and intradiscal pressure of the PTED model showed only a slight increase under most stress conditions, and a slight decrease in a few conditions, and there was no significant change trend before and after surgery. In the original degenerated adjacent segment disc model, the biomechanical indicators related to disc degeneration in the pre- and post-PTED model showed significant deterioration, leading to an increased risk of potential adjacent spondylopathy.@*CONCLUSION@#PTED surgery will not lead to the significant deterioration of postoperative biomechanical environment of non-degeneration adjacent intervertebral discs, and the original degeneration of adjacent intervertebral discs is a important risk factor for ASD.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To compare therapeutic effects of internal fixation with volar locking plate in treating extension and flexion type of distal radius fracture (DRF).@*METHODS@#From January 2015 to June 2018, 103 patients with DRF were retrospectively analyzed. According to original fracture displacement direction, patients were divided into extension fracture(Colles) group and flexion fracture (Smith) group. In Colles fracture group, there were 24 males and 44 females aged from 20 to 79 years old with an average of (59.0±13.4) years old;according to AO classification, 9 patients of type A2, 13 patients of type A3, 16 patientsof type C1, 17 patients of type C2 and 13 patients of type C3;the time from injury to operation ranged from 2 to 9 days with an average of (3.9±0.8) days. In Smith fracture group, there were 15 males and 20 females, aged from 27 to 87 years old with an average of (60.1±15.3) years old;according to AO classification, 4 patienst of A2, 7 patients of A3, 14 patients of C1, 5 patients of C2 and 5 patients of C3;the time from injury to operation ranged from 2 to 6 days with an average of (4.1±0.9) days. Operation time, fracture healing time and postoperative complications were recorded between two groups. Disabilities of arm, shoulder and hand (DASH) score at 6 and 8 weeks, 6 and 8 months were used to evaluate functional recovery of affected limbs during each follow up. Volar tilt, radial inclination and radius height were measured at 8 months after operation. Mayo score was measured at 8 months after operation to evaluate recovery of limb function.@*RESULTS@#All patients were followed up for 8 to 30 months with an average of (14.8±4.3) months, and no difference in follow up between two groups (@*CONCLUSION@#Patients with Colles fracture and Smith fracture could receive good reduction and fixation through volar locking plate. The radiographic parameters of both groups recovered satisfactorily after operation. Recovery of volar tilt of Smith fracture group is better than that of Colles fracture group, and early recovery function of Colles fracture group is better than that of Smith group, but there is no significant difference in long-term wrist joint function and incidence of postoperative complications between two groups.

ABSTRACT

By analyzing the physiological structure and motion characteristics of human ankle joint, a four degree of freedom generalized spherical parallel mechanism is proposed to meet the needs of ankle rehabilitation. Using the spiral theory to analyze the motion characteristics of the mechanism and based on the method of describing the position with spherical coordinates and the posture with Euler Angle, the inverse solution of the closed vector equation of mechanism position is established. The workspace of mechanism is analyzed according to the constraint conditions of inverse solution. The workspace of the moving spherical center of the mechanism is used to match the movement space of the tibiotalar joint, and the workspace of the dynamic platform is used to match the movement space of subtalar joint. Genetic algorithm is used to optimize the key scale parameters of the mechanism. The results show that the workspace of the generalized spherical parallel mechanism can satisfy the actual movement space of human ankle joint rehabilitation. The results of this paper can provide theoretical basis and experimental reference for the design of ankle joint rehabilitation robot with high matching degree.

ABSTRACT

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction mostly relies on the experience of surgeons. To improve the effectiveness and adaptability of the tension after ACL reconstruction in knee joint rehabilitation, this paper establishes a lateral force measurement model with relaxation characteristics and designs an on-line stiffness measurement system of ACL. In this paper, we selected 20 sheep knee joints as experimental material for the knee joint stability test before the ACL reconstruction operation, which were divided into two groups for a comparative test of single-bundle ACL reconstruction through the anterolateral approach. The first group of surgeons carried out intraoperative detection with routine procedures. The second group used ACL on-line stiffness measurement system for intraoperative detection. After that, the above two groups were tested for postoperative stability. The study results show that the tension accuracy is (- 2.3 ± 0.04)%, and the displacement error is (1.5 ± 1.8)%. The forward stability, internal rotation stability, and external rotation stability of the two groups were better than those before operation (

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective To compare the functional results of patients with complex proximal humerus fracture submitted to total shoulder reverse arthroplasty with and without tuberosity healing. The secondary goal was to know the tuberosity healing rate after reverse shoulder arthroplasty with our surgical technique. Methods A retrospective, cohort type study, with a prospective database collection. In total, 28 patients fulfilled the inclusion criteria: age ≥ 65 years, reverse shoulder arthroplasty for complex proximal humerus fracture (type-3 or -4, according to Neer), and a minimum of 24 months of follow-up. At six months of follow-up, all of the patients were evaluated radiographically for tuberosity, and then they were divided into 2 groups: those with healed tuberosities and those with non-healed tuberosities. A clinical evaluation using the Constant score, active range of motion and the Visual Analog Scale (VAS) at the last follow-up was also performed. Results Tuberosity healing occurred in 21 patients (76.3%). There were statistically significant differences in the Constant scoring system (p < 0.001), forward elevation (p = 0.020), internal rotation (p = 0.001) and external rotation (p = 0.003) when comparing the group of healed tuberosities with the group of non-healed tuberosities. No differences were found regarding the VAS score. Conclusion Tuberosity healing results in an improvement of the functional outcomes of patients submitted to reverse shoulder arthroplasty as a treatment for complex proximal humeral fractures in the elderly.


Resumo Objetivo Comparar os resultados funcionais entre pacientes com fratura complexa do úmero proximal submetidos a artroplastia reversa com tubérculos consolidados e tubérculos não consolidados. O objetivo secundário foi determinar a taxa de consolidação dos tubérculos com este tipo de prótese. Métodos Estudo de tipo coorte, retrospectivo, com coleta prospectiva de dados. No total, 28 pacientes cumpriram os critérios de inclusão: idade superior a 65 anos, prótese reversa do ombro por fratura complexa do úmero proximal (3 ou 4 partes, segundo Neer), e tempo de seguimento mínimo de 24 meses. Aos seis meses, todos os pacientes foram avaliados radiograficamente quanto à consolidação dos tubérculos e divididos em dois grupos: grupo com tubérculos consolidados e grupo com tubérculos não consolidados. A avaliação funcional realizou-se segundo o sistema de pontuação de Constant, da amplitude de movimento ativo, e da Escala Visual Analógica (EVA) à data da última consulta. Registaram-se todas as complicações. Resultados A consolidação dos tubérculos ocorreu em 21 pacientes (76,3%). Verificou-se diferenças estatisticamente significativas no sistema de pontuação de Constant (p < 0.001), elevação anterior (p = 0.020), rotação interna (p = 0.001) e externa (p = 0.003), quando se comparou o grupo dos tubérculos consolidados com o grupo dos tubérculos não consolidados. Não houve diferenças significativas na EVA entre os 2 grupos. Conclusão A consolidação dos tubérculos traduz uma melhoria dos resultados funcionais em pacientes submetidos a artroplastia reversa do ombro como tratamento de fraturas complexas do úmero proximal em idosos.
