The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of Schroth scoliosis-specific exercises (SSE) on patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) during bracing. The goal is t...
A variety of postoperative bracing are routinely applied after spinal procedures but there are limited data regarding their efficacy, especially with the increasing use of internal fixatio...
The study will examine clinical and radiographic outcomes of microfracture surgery (a common technique to address isolated areas of cartilage loss) in the knee used with or without unloade...
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a structural curve of the spine with no clear underlying cause. Bracing is currently the standard of care for preventing curve progression and trea...
This study intends to investigate the three dimensional (3D) effect of bracing on the adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). In particular, it will look at the relationship between frontal...
Context: Prior studies have shown common use of post-operative bracing, despite advances in modern day instrumentation rigidity and little evidence of brace effectiveness.
Nitrous acid (HONO) plays an important role in atmospheric photochemistry processes because its photolysis provides an efficient source of hydroxyl (OH) radicals in the troposphere. However, few studi...
Nighttime environmental noise affects sleep quality. However, the effects of daytime occupational noise remain unclear.
The climate change scenarios besides foreseeing a severe drought imposition also emphasize the temperature rising in the Mediterranean region, with special prominence at nighttime. Despite the high ol...
Previous studies have found more frequent increases in dietary intake and nonrestorative nocturnal sleep during the luteal phase than in the follicular phase, but few studies have investigated how inc...
Function of the human eye that is used in dim illumination (scotopic intensities) or at nighttime. Scotopic vision is performed by RETINAL ROD PHOTORECEPTORS with high sensitivity to light and peak absorption wavelength at 507 nm near the blue end of the spectrum.
A group of enzymatic disorders affecting the nervous system and to a variable degree the skeletal system, lymphoreticular system, and other organs. The conditions are marked by an abnormal accumulation of catabolic material within lysosomes.
The system of glands that release their secretions (hormones) directly into the circulatory system. In addition to the ENDOCRINE GLANDS, included are the CHROMAFFIN SYSTEM and the NEUROSECRETORY SYSTEMS.
The biochemical and electrophysiological interactions between the NERVOUS SYSTEM and IMMUNE SYSTEM that result in regulation of the immune system by the nervous system.
Method for assessing flow through a system by injection of a known quantity of dye into the system and monitoring its concentration over time at a specific point in the system. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
