Several procedures have been proposed for the treatment of eyelid ptosis, and both levator advancement and levator plication are widely used to shorten the levator palpebrae superioris. The purpose of...
Recently a two-port open fetoscopic myelomeningocele (MMC) repair technique, performed together by a pediatric neurosurgeon and maternal-fetal medicine specialist was described.(1) Acquiring skills fo...
The aim of this study was to determine whether pre-operative levator function and degree of ptosis affect surgical outcomes in children with congenital ptosis undergoing anterior levator resection und...
Kawasaki disease is an acute febrile exanthematous disease that affects children younger than 5 years of age. It is regarded as the most common cause of childhood acquired heart disease, but ocular ...
To determine the accuracy of ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of penile fracture and preoperative mapping for modified surgical repair.
To test the hypothesis that preoperative injections along the levator ani muscles and pudendal nerve with bupivacaine and dexamethasone improve pain control after vaginal apical reconstruc...
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...
This study will compare ultrasound 0.4 W/cm^2 and 100% duty cycle versus no ultrasound (placebo) for bilateral masseter myalgia in up to 38 adult women. The dose will be applied for 5 minu...
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 top layer of the back muscles whose function is to move the SCAPULA. This group of muscles consists of the trapezius, latissimus dorsi, rhomboid major, rhomboid minor and levator scapulae.
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.
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...
