BACKGROUND: Medial epicanthoplasty is a common aesthetic surgery in Asia to remove the epicanthal fold. With increasing use of this surgery, unsatisfactory results have grown. Several methods have been developed to correct it. However, there are limitations in restoration if the patient has a severe scar or does not have enough skin for reconstruction. By aggressively removing scar tissue, the authors present a better reverse redraping epicanthoplasty. METHODS: The procedure was performed on 512 patients who had complications of medial epicanthoplasty from May 2011 to October 2015...

BACKGROUND: Physical exercise is the main strategy for improving physical fitness in elderly population. However, it is not clear which training method lead to greater adaptations on maximal dynamic strength, muscle power, muscle endurance and isometric strength in this population. Thus, our aim was to compare the effects of functional and traditional training on these variables in the elderly. METHODS: This study lasted twelve weeks, where forty-four elderly women were randomly divided into three groups: Functional (FT; n = 18); Traditional (TT; n = 15); and Control (CG; n = 11)...

Introduction: Avulsion fractures of lesser trochanter (LT) of femur are generally seen following trauma with intertrochanteric or sub trochanteric fractures. Non-traumatic fractures of LT could oc-cur due to sudden violent contraction of the iliopsoas muscle that inserts on the LT; during vigorous exercise, or sudden pull involving flexion of hip. These are seen commonly in adolescents where the physis has not fused yet. Such a scenario in an adult patient most often or not leads to a diagnosis of an underlying malignancy or metastatic lesion...

Peritoneal fibrosis (PF) with associated peritoneal dysfunction is almost invariably observed in long-term peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are pro-oxidant compounds produced in excess during the metabolism of glucose and are present in high levels in standard PD solutions. The GTPase RhoA has been implicated in PF, but its specific role remains poorly understood. Here, we studied the effects of RhoA/Rho-kinase signaling in AGEs-induced epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in human peritoneal mesothelial cells (HPMCs), and evaluated morphological and molecular changes in a rat model of PD-related PF...

This study compared the effects of a 4-week supervised (SUP) and unsupervised (UNSUP) resistance training programme followed by 12 weeks of detraining (DET). Thirty-six healthy aging adults (age: 53.6 ± 3.6 years; body mass index: 28.3 ± 5.1 kg/m) were randomly allocated to a SUP group (n = 17) or an UNSUP group (n = 19). Participants completed three training sessions per week using resistance bands and body weight movements. Measures of physical performance were administered at baseline, at the end of the training programme, and after the DET period...

INTRODUCTION: Although the pathomechanism of isolated infraspinatus atrophy (ISA) in throwing sports is known to be traction, it is unclear why only some players are affected. One likely explanation is that the infraspinatus pulling force exerted by its contracture generate the compressive resultant component force (Fn) compressing the lateral trunk of the suprascapular nerve (LTSN) against the edge of scapular spine. This paper makes two key assumptions (1) the course of LTSN in relation to the scapular spine, defined as the suprascapular-scapular spine angle (SSSA) is the key individual anatomical feature influencing the Fn magnitude, and thus potentially ISA development (2) SSSA is correlated with scapular notch type...

This clinical report describes the successful use of lip repositioning technique for the reduction of excessive gingival display. The lip repositioning technique was performed with the main objective of reducing gummy smile by limiting the retraction of elevator muscles (e.g., zygomaticus minor, levator anguli, orbicularis oris, and levator labii superioris). This technique includes removing a strip of mucosa from the maxillary buccal vestibule, creating a partial-thickness flap between mucogingival junction and upper lip musculature, and suturing the lip mucosa with mucogingival junction, resulting in a narrow vestibule and restricted muscle pull, thereby reducing gingival display...

During muscle development myonuclei undergo a complex set of movements that result in evenly spaced nuclei throughout the muscle cell. In Drosophila two separate pools of Kinesin and Dynein work in synchrony to drive this process. However, how these two pools are specified is not known. Here, we investigate the role of Aplip1 ( Drosophila JIP1), a known regulator of both Kinesin and Dynein, in myonuclear positioning. Aplip1 localizes to myotendinous junction and has genetically separable roles in myonuclear positioning and muscle stability...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Studies over the last 20 years have revealed that there are fibrous connective tissues between the suboccipital muscles, nuchal ligament and cervical spinal dura mater(SDM). This fibrous connection with the SDM is through the posterior atlanto-occipital and/or atlanto-axial interspaces and is called the Myodural Bridge(MDB). Researches have inferred that the MDB might have important functions. It was speculated that the function of MDB might be related to proprioception transmission, keeping the subarachnoid space and the cerebellomedullary cistern unobstructed, and affecting the dynamic circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)...

Mimetic muscles contract and pull the overlying skin toward the muscle's bony attachment. Numerous books and articles have shown the mimetic muscles via cadaveric dissection. However, for dentistry and oral surgery, the mimetic muscles have not been detailed from intraoral dissection. Recently, several papers have addressed various mimetic muscles in relation to intraoral dissection. However, to our knowledge, there has been no overview of these muscles beneath the oral mucosa. Here, we review the literature concerning the mimetic muscles as revealed during intraoral dissection, create novel illustrations, and discuss the relationship of these muscles with general dentistry and oral surgery...

Bifid condyle is a rare entity with a difficult diagnosis and usually identified as an incidental finding on routine radiographic examination. The etiology is not well known, possible causes may be developmental, traumatic, vascular, abnormal muscle pulling, nutritional, endocrinal, teratogenic, and infections. The orientation of the condylar heads can behelpful for the etiological diagnosis.This case report describes a 56-year-old woman who suffered from a unilateral, progressively increasing, radiating pain which intensified with the movement of the mandible and includes information about the diagnosis, management, radiographic and three-dimensional model features and review of the literature...

BACKGROUND: In judo, rapid force production during pulling movements is an important component of athletic performance, which is why this capacity needs to be specifically exercised in judo. This study aimed at examining the effects of a judo-specific resistance training program using a judo ergometer system (PTJ) versus a traditional resistance training regime using a partner (PTP) on kinetics and muscle activity of judo-specific pulling exercises. METHOD: Twenty-four male judo athletes (age: 22 ± 4 years, training experience: 15 ± 3 years) were randomly assigned to two groups...

Single-molecule atomic force microscopy and magnetic tweezers experiments have demonstrated that titin immunoglobulin (Ig) domains are capable of folding against a pulling force, generating mechanical work that exceeds that produced by a myosin motor. We hypothesize that upon muscle activation, formation of actomyosin cross bridges reduces the force on titin, causing entropic recoil of the titin polymer and triggering the folding of the titin Ig domains. In the physiological force range of 4-15 pN under which titin operates in muscle, the folding contraction of a single Ig domain can generate 200% of the work of entropic recoil and occurs at forces that exceed the maximum stalling force of single myosin motors...

An unruptured aneurysm was incidentally found in the right middle cerebral artery in a 67-year-old woman. During an attempt to turn the temporalis muscle for surgical clipping, systolic blood pressure suddenly increased. After opening the dura mater, we found a subarachnoid hemorrhage and severe brain swelling. We promptly expanded the craniotomy area to reach the aneurysm while pulling part of the frontal lobe to apply a clip. We retrospectively analyzed the aneurysm using computational fluid dynamics. Our analysis suggests that the rupture of the aneurysm occurred at a location with very low wall shear stress...

BACKGROUND: Cell surface mechanics is able to physically and biomechanically affect cell shape and motility, vesicle trafficking and actin dynamics. The biophysical properties of cell surface are strongly influenced by cytoskeletal elements. In mammals, tissue-specific expression of six actin isoforms is thought to confer differential biomechanical properties. However, the relative contribution of actin isoforms to cell surface properties is not well understood. Here, we sought to investigate whether and how the composition of endogenous actin isoforms directly affects the biomechanical features of cell surface and cellular behavior...

The relationship between muscle strength and bone mineral content (BMC) and bone mineral density (BMD) is supposed from the assumption of the mechanical stress influence on bone tissue metabolism. However, the direct relationship is not well established in younger men, since the enhancement of force able to produce effective changes in bone health, still needs to be further studied. This study aimed to analyze the influence of muscle strength on BMC and BMD in undergraduate students. Thirty six men (24.9 ± 8...
