INTRODUCTION: The daily protein recommendation for adults is 0.8 g/kg/day; however, several studies argue that an intake of 1.0-1.5 g protein/kg/day could benefit the health of the elderly. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the protein intake and serum lipid levels in elderly patients with hip fracture, determining their correlation with the grip strength in both hands. METHODS: The study included 47 adult patients aged 65-85 years hospitalized for recent hip fracture...

Thoracic paravertebral block (TPVB) can be performed with or without general anaesthesia for various surgical procedures. TPVB is a popular anaesthetic technique due to its low side effect profile and high analgesic potency. We used 20 mL of 0.5% levobupivacaine for a single injection of unilateral TPVB at the T7 level with neurostimulator in a 63 year old patient with co-morbid disease who underwent cholecystectomy. Following the application patient lost consciousness, and was intubated. Haemodynamic instability was normalised with rapid volume replacement and vasopressors...

BackgroundThe anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture accounting for about 50% of all knee ligament injuries. The rehabilitation program requires a long time to rebuild muscle strength and to reestablish joint mobility and neuromuscular control. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the muscle strength recovery in athletes with ACL reconstruction. MethodsWe enrolled soccer atlethes, with isolated anterior cruciate ligament rupture treated with bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft artroscopic reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: The best treatment for acute rupture of the Achilles tendon is still under debate. Our purpose was to evaluate surgical triple-bundle technique in selected patients with full subcutaneous rupture of Achilles tendon. METHODS: Sixty-six consecutive patients (56 men, 10 women; age range 20-61 years) with full unilateral rupture of the Achilles tendon were surgically treated by the triple-bundle technique. Seventy-four percent of the lesions occurred during sport activity...

Inclusion body myositis is the most common disabling inflammatory myopathy in the elderly. It is more frequent in men and after the age of 50 years. Inflammatory and degenerative features coexist. There is a T-cell mediated autoimmunity driven by in situ clonally expanded cytotoxic CD8-positive T-cells invading non-necrotic muscle fibres expressing MHC-I antigen. The hallmarks of degeneration are the deposition of protein aggregates and the formation of vesicles. The course of the disease is slow and the diagnosis is usually set after several years...

Systematic variations in the tensile strenght of cooked beef M. semitendinosus across the muscle fibre direction due to the cross-sectional size of specimens are demonstrated in specimens from (a) longitudinal and (b) transverse slices. The strength perpendicular to the fibre direction of longitudinal slices of thickness 0·25-5·75 mm varied by a factor of 2, thicker slices being stronger. This factor of 2 is in approximate agreement with the difference in strength of transverse versus longitudinal slices across the fibre direction...

Pectoralis major rupture is a very uncommon injury first time described by Patissier in 1822. Tears are classified on the type (partial and complete) or on the site (tendinous, myotendinous junction, intramuscular). Ruptures are reported in young high-performance athletes as results of eccentric contractions of the musculotendinous unit. The most probable mechanism in elderly patients is a brisk tearing movement applied to stiff atrophic muscle. Injuries generally involve the sternal portion; the localization to the clavicular portion is rare and can be misdiagnosed as muscle sprain...

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is frequently used for relief of chronic benign pain resistant to conservative therapies. Clinical practice suggests, at least in patients with failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS), the possibility that SCS significantly improves motor performances. We present here the case of a 41-years-old female patient with FBSS, who showed a clear improvement in muscle strength after SCS, persisting at 6-months follow-up. We speculate that the electrical stimulation of posterior columns could potentiate the caudal, segmental spinal reflexes resulting in a facilitation of motoneurons activation...

Local anesthesia of the intact skin is difficult because of the skin barrier to epicutaneous penetration. Using solutions of local anesthetics in organic agents, which have the ability of penetrating the skin without causing irreversible damage and enhancing the percutaneous absorption of all materials dissolved therein, topical anesthesia seems to be attainable. A satisfactory method for determining pain threshold in uninjured skin of animals has been set up. Measurments of the pricking pain threshold have been made by exposing the skin of guinea-pigs to defined mechanical and electrical stimuli...

Our experience with 32 infants seen with Erb's palsy, of whom 11 were followed as long as 18 years, suggests two management axioms. First, it is probably harmful to the infant to use airplane splints. Seocnd, passive stretching of the tight scapulohumeral adductors and passive normal range of motion exercises to shoulder and elbow will usually give a successful outcome in this obstetrical complication. Finally, even though the shoulder muscles regain their strenght, the "Erb engram" may remain as a mark of Erb's palsy...

The author describes a method of levator strength measurement with the oculomyodynamometer with which he measured a maximum strength of the levator muscle in adults of 58 G. The levators were much weaker in congenital ptosis. In three such cases the levators had strengths of only 9 G, 5 G and 5 G. In cases of acquired ptosis the reduced strength of the levators was on an average about half normal. This method allows 1. better diagnosis with levator paresis, 2. a control of its behaviour during the clinical course, 3...

Twenty-nine adult rhesus monkeys underwent complete laceration of both tibial nerves at mid-thigh level and repair by different methods to study the relative efficacy of autogenous interfascicular nerve grafts. Sixteen animals in Group I had an interfascicular graft repair using short sural nerve autografts on one limb and fascicular repair without grafts on the other limb. Thirteen animals in Group II, after having a 1-cm segment of tibial nerve resected, had an interfascicular graft repair without tension in one limb and an epineurial repair under moderate tension in the other limb...

The trade-off between current strength and duration of a stimulating pulse was studied for the rewarding and priming effects of brain stimulation reward (BSR). With cathodal pulses, strenght-duration functions for BSR had chronaxies of .8-3 msec. No differences were observed between the results for rewarding and priming effects. With anodal pulses. strength-duration curves were parallel to the cathodal curves at pulse durations of .1-5 msec, but at pulse durations greater than 5 msec the anodal curves showed a greater drop in required current intensity than did the cathodal curves...
