Acute limb ischemia caused by ruptured cardiac hydatid cyst - A case report.

Acute limb ischemia is a sudden decrease in limb perfusion that threatens the viability of the limb. Complete or even partial occlusion of the arterial supply to a limb can lead to rapid ischemia and ...

Comparison of outcomes between hip fracture patients with concurrent upper limb injuries and patients with an isolated hip fracture.

Concurrent upper limb injuries can occur with hip fractures, and its incidence and effect on outcomes are unclear. The objective of this study was to review the number and types of upper limb injuries...

Management of in-transit melanoma metastases: a review.

In-transit metastases (ITM) of cutaneous melanoma are locoregional recurrences confined to the superficial lymphatics that occur in 3.4-6.2% of patients diagnosed with melanoma. ITM are a heterogeneou...

The effect of coil type and limb dominance in the assessment of lower-limb motor cortex excitability using TMS.

Clinical application of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has rapidly increased but the majority of studies have targeted upper limb muscles, with few exploring the lower-limb. Differences of co...

Preemptive Treatment of Phantom and Residual Limb Pain with Targeted Muscle Reinnervation at the Time of Major Limb Amputation.

A majority of the nearly two million Americans living with limb loss suffer from chronic pain in the form of neuroma-related residual limb and phantom limb pain (PLP). Targeted muscle reinnervation (T...

Isolated Limb Infusion of Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Melanoma or Soft Tissue Sarcoma of the Arm or Leg That Cannot Be Removed By Surgery

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Infusing chemotherapy to the tumor area only may kill more tumor cel...

Evaluating the Effect of Nivolumab for Patients With In-transit Metastases Treated With Isolated Limb Perfusion

To evaluate safety and the effect of isolated limb perfusion together with nivolumab as a way to increase efficacy and give further insights in early immunological mechanisms. In the firs...

TITAN With Isolated Limb Perfusion With Melphalan and Tumour Necrosis Factor-α in Patients With Advanced Extremity Tumours Including Metastatic Melanoma

This study will look at the safety and effects of combining a new drug called Talimogene Laherparepvec (T-VEC) with chemotherapy delivered by Isolated Limb Perfusion (ILP). The investigato...

Isolated Limb Perfusion With Melphalan in Treating Patients With Stage IIIB-IV Melanoma or Sarcoma

This pilot clinical trial studies isolated limb perfusion with melphalan in treating patients with stage IIIB-IV melanoma or sarcoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as melphalan, work in...

Minimally-Invasive Isolated Limb Perfusion

The aim is to analyse feasibility of a minimally-invasive isolated limb perfusion.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Distinct regions of mesenchymal outgrowth at both flanks of an embryo during the SOMITE period. Limb buds, covered by ECTODERM, give rise to forelimb, hindlimb, and eventual functional limb structures. Limb bud cultures are used to study CELL DIFFERENTIATION; ORGANOGENESIS; and MORPHOGENESIS.

Perception of painful and nonpainful phantom sensations that occur following the complete or partial loss of a limb. The majority of individuals with an amputated extremity will experience the impression that the limb is still present, and in many cases, painful. (From Neurol Clin 1998 Nov;16(4):919-36; Brain 1998 Sep;121(Pt 9):1603-30)

An apraxia characterized by the affected limb having involuntary, autonomous, and purposeful behaviors that are perceived as being controlled by an external force. Often the affected limb interferes with the actions of the normal limb. Symptoms develop from lesions in the CORPUS CALLOSUM or medial frontal cortex, stroke, infarction, and neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., CREUTZFELDT-JAKOB SYNDROME, corticobasal degeneration).

White matter pathway, flanked by nuclear masses, consisting of both afferent and efferent fibers projecting between the cerebral cortex and the brainstem. It consists of three distinct parts: an anterior limb, posterior limb, and genu.

An alternative to amputation in patients with neoplasms, ischemia, fractures, and other limb-threatening conditions. Generally, sophisticated surgical procedures such as vascular surgery and reconstruction are used to salvage diseased limbs.
