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 poor functional outcomes within hours. In human echinococcosis cardiac involvement is a rare presentation, it may lead to life-threatening complications including cyst rupture; anaphylactic shock; tamponade; pulmonary, cerebral or peripheral arterial embolism. Cardiac hydatid cyst (CHC) may have different prese...
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 sustained by patients with hip fractures, and investigate how acute hospital stay, rehabilitation and patient outcomes are affected.
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 heterogeneous disease that poses a therapeutic dilemma. Patients may have a prolonged disease trajectory involving multiple or repeat treatment modalities for frequent recurrences. The management of ITM has evolved without the development of a standardized protocol. Owing to the variability of the disease course there are ...
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 coil choice have added to methodological difficulties of lower-limb studies and have challenged consistent interpretation of these parameters. The aims of this study were to determine the optimal coil choice for assessing lower-limb cortical excitability and assess laterality of normal cortical function.
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 (TMR) surgically transfers amputated nerves to nearby motor nerves for prevention of neuroma. The objective of this study was to determine whether TMR at the time of major limb amputation decreases the incidence and severity of PLP and residual limb pain.
Decreased perfusion in the lower extremities is one of the several adverse effects of placing patients in a lithotomy or Trendelenburg position during surgery. This study aimed to evaluate the effects of patient positioning in lower limb perfusion patients undergoing robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RARP) using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS).
GLI3 encodes a transcription factor in the sonic hedgehog signaling pathway, which is essential in regulating the human limb bud development, especially on the anteroposterior axis. Mutations in GLI3 have been confirmed to be associated with various human congenital malformations, including Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome, Pallister-Hall syndrome, and isolated polydactyly. A robust gene-phenotype relationship between GLI3 and Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome and Pallister-Hall syndrome has been wel...
In aortic surgery, a severely atherosclerotic aorta is a known risk factor for perioperative stroke. We adopted a novel procedure of selective cerebral perfusion, named isolated cerebral perfusion (ICP), for the prevention of stroke during aortic arch surgery.
Ulnar hemimelia is a very rare skeletal abnormality characterized by the total or partial absence of the ulna. It is reported to occur in approximately 1 per 150,000 live births. Some shortening of the forearm, radial bowing, and tendency of the hand to drift to the ulnar side of the wrist usually accompany ulnar hemimelia. Other skeletal anomalies such as humeroradial synostosis, radial head dislocation, carpal or metacarpal coalition, and digital abnormalities may also be seen in cases of ulnar hemimelia....
Appropriate pain relief enhances patient satisfaction and reduces patient anxiety. This study aimed to compare oral oxycodone with intravenous (IV) morphine sulfate (MS) in pain management of acute limb trauma.
The aim of this study was to review the perioperative complication rates and neonatal outcomes after fetoscopic release of amniotic bands that caused bilateral limb constrictions. We present 5 cases of limb constriction by amniotic bands occurring spontaneously or following fetoscopic surgery and also include a review of 21 previously published cases. The cases were analyzed for indication, surgical technique, and postoperative follow-up. In our population and the literature, the majority of the children ac...
SCMCIE94: an intensified pilot treatment protocol known to be associated with cure in CD 56-negative non-pelvic isolated Ewing sarcoma (EWS) is also associated with no early relapses in non-metastatic extremity EWS.
We report the unexpected absence of early relapse (before 30 months) in 24 consecutive patients with isolated limb primary Ewing sarcoma treated with an intensified pilot protocol, SCMCIE94.
To evaluate the short-term outcomes of percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy (PMT) in patients with acute lower limb ischemia (ALI) and to analyze the effect of ALI of different etiologies on the limb salvage.
In critical limb ischemia patients, an association is assumed between depression and worse outcome for morbidity, such as major limb amputation. After major amputation, anxiety and depression are common. We aimed to determine the association of depressive and anxiety symptoms in the elderly with critical limb ischemia, especially after major limb amputation.
Total flavones of Abelmoschus manihot L. Medic (TFA) is the major active component isolated from Chinese herb Abelmoschus manihot L. Medic. TFA has shown neuroprotective effect against cerebral ischemia injury in rats and rabbits. However, the effects of TFA on hind-limb ischemia and the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Therefore, in the present study, we used a rat hind-limb ischemia model to investigate protective effect of TFA against limb ischemia injury. The rat model of hind-limb ischemia was est...
Modulation of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) activity is essential to the progression of limb development in the mouse embryo. Genetic disruption of BMP signaling at various stages of limb development causes defects ranging from complete limb agenesis to oligodactyly, polydactyly, webbing, and chondrodysplasia. To probe the state of BMP signaling in early limb buds, we designed two sets of primers to measure both spatially and quantitatively the transcription of nine key genes indicative of canonical BMP ...
Small intermittent adjustments of socket size using adjustable sockets may be a means for people with transtibial amputation to better maintain residual limb fluid volume and limb position while using a prosthesis.
Hox genes are known to determine vertebral identity along with being required for normal limb patterning. A new study now finds that differential expression timing of Hox genes in the lateral plate mesoderm determines limb placement as well.
Melanocortin 4 receptor (Mc4r) plays a crucial role in the central control of energy homeostasis, but its role in peripheral organs has not been fully explored. We have investigated the roles of hypothalamus-mediated energy metabolism during Xenopus limb regeneration. We report that hypothalamus injury inhibits Xenopus tadpole limb regeneration. By loss-of-function and gain-of-function studies, we show that Mc4r signaling is required for limb regeneration in regeneration-competent tadpoles and stimulates li...
Measurements of residual limb volume often guide decisions on the type and timing of prosthetic prescription. To help inform these decisions, it is important that clinicians use measurement tools that are reliable and valid.
Predicting sensorimotor upper limb outcome receives continued attention. Measures by electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) could be neurophysiological predictors for sensorimotor upper limb recovery.
Children with lower limb loss face gait and balance limitations. Prosthetic rehabilitation is thus aimed at improving functional capacity and mobility throughout the developmental phases of the child amputee. This review of literature was conducted to determine the characteristics of prosthetic gait and balance among children and adolescents with lower-limb amputation or other limb loss.
Training exposure has been associated with injury epidemiology in elite youth soccer, where lower limb musculoskeletal screening is commonly used to highlight injury risk. However, there has been little consideration of the relationship between lower limb screening and the loading response to soccer activities.
