Ptosis repair was performed in patients with ocular myasthenia gravis by a posterior approach (Fasanella-Servat, 12 eyelids of nine patients) or levator advancement (eight eyelids of five patients) te...
Cervical dystonia, also called spasmodic torticollis, is a painful condition in which neck muscles contract involuntarily, and may cause abnormal head position or movements. The primary (or first line...
To determine the prevalence of levator ani (LA) muscle subdivision defects in patients with SUI using three-dimensional endovaginal ultrasound (3D EVUS).
At our institution, core muscle biopsies are performed on muscles selected using electromyography (EMG). Ultrasound guidance is not used routinely.
To determine the rate of pelvic floor trauma, levator ani muscle (LAM) avulsion as well as the mean difference in levator hiatus area, after normal vaginal deliveries (NVD) and vacuum assisted deliver...
The purpose of the study is to characterize the levator ani structures (pubovaginalis, puboperinealis, puboanalis, puborectalis, and the iliococcygeous) using 3-D ultrasonography in nullip...
Blepharoptosis, inferodisplacement of the upper eyelid, can be congenital or acquired. Acquired Blepharoptosis is usually aponeurotic, due to stretching or disinsertion of the levator apon...
The purpose of this study is to compare the use of ultrasound-guided bilateral rectus sheath blocks to local infiltration of anesthetic agent in the surgical wound in a pediatric populatio...
The objective of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of the Cordis Bilateral AAA device and its Delivery System compared to open surgical repair for the treatment of Abdom...
Injury to the muscles of the back passage (anal canal) is a relatively common problem. This injury can result in problems with bowel control later in life and usually occurs during vaginal...
The muscles of the palate are the glossopalatine, palatoglossus, levator palati(ni), musculus uvulae, palatopharyngeus, and tensor palati(ni).
The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.
The 3d cranial nerve. The oculomotor nerve sends motor fibers to the levator muscles of the eyelid and to the superior rectus, inferior rectus, and inferior oblique muscles of the eye. It also sends parasympathetic efferents (via the ciliary ganglion) to the muscles controlling pupillary constriction and accommodation. The motor fibers originate in the oculomotor nuclei of the midbrain.
The muscles that move the eye. Included in this group are the medial rectus, lateral rectus, superior rectus, inferior rectus, inferior oblique, superior oblique, musculus orbitalis, and levator palpebrae superioris.
The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
