The purpose of the present study was to compare and quantify with ultrasound imaging (USI) the extensor digitorum longus (EDL), tibialis anterior (TA) and peroneus muscles (PER) muscle thickness and c...
The changes in the viscoelasticity of the Achilles tendon are related to tendinopathy. Therefore, constructing a data model in the healthy population is essential to understanding the key factors affe...
Determine how the strength and endurance of the plantar flexors are affected by Achilles tendinopathy and whether one muscle is more affected than another.
Achilles and patellar tendinopathy are common in runners. Despite the relevance of the problem, causative factors remain poorly understood. This cross-sectional study evaluated the association between...
Female runners that habitually use a forefoot/midfoot strike pattern (non-rearfoot runners) may be at greater risk for Achilles tendinopathy compared to runners that habitually use a rearfoot strike p...
Overuse injury of the Achilles tendon is a common entity in athletes. Currently, the usual treatment for chronic midportion Achilles tendinopathy is an eccentric exercise program. In most ...
Exercise is a preferred treatment modality for mid-portion achilles tendinopathy. Despite this, as many as 44 % of achilles tendinopathy patients do not respond to exercise treatment. ...
The purpose of this study is to compare in a randomized double blinded controlled trial the effect of heavy slow resistance exercises combined with ultrasound guided injections with local ...
Chronic Achilles tendinopathy is a painful condition with frequently unsatisfactory results of conservative treatment. Extracorporal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) has been introduced in the ma...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether sclerotherapy using a 25% dextrose and 1% lidocaine solution is an efficacious treatment for patients with chronic Achilles tendinopathy w...
A heterogenous group of inherited muscular dystrophy without the involvement of nervous system. The disease is characterized by MUSCULAR ATROPHY; MUSCLE WEAKNESS; CONTRACTURE of the elbows; ACHILLES TENDON; and posterior cervical muscles; with or without cardiac features. There are several INHERITANCE PATTERNS including X-linked (X CHROMOSOME), autosomal dominant, and autosomal recessive gene mutations.
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.
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
The analysis of a critical number of sensory stimuli or facts (the pattern) by physiological processes such as vision (PATTERN RECOGNITION, VISUAL), touch, or hearing.
Inflammation (tendinitis) or degeneration (tendinosis) of the tendons of the elbow.
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...
