Cupping therapy has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years to relieve muscle pain/tendency/fatigue and to cure or reduce symbols of other diseases. However, its therapeutic effect is sparsely interpreted in the language of modern physiology. To objectively evaluate its therapeutic effect, we focused on dry cupping treatment and utilized near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to assess the concentration change in oxy-hemoglobin ([HbO2]), deoxy-hemoglobin ([Hb]), and blood volume in the course of cupping therapy over 13 volunteers on the infraspinatus muscle, where is usually applied for shoulder pains...

In short track speed skating, the relay exchange provides an additional strategic component to races by allowing a team to change the skater involved in the pack race. Typically executed every 1½ laps, it is the belief of skaters and coaches that during this period of the race, time can be gained or lost due to the execution of the relay exchange. As such, the aim of this study was to examine the influence of the relay exchange on a team's progression through a 5000 m relay race. Using data collected from three World Cup relay events during the 2012-2013 season, the time taken to complete the straight for the scenarios with and without the relay exchange were compared at different skating speeds for the corner exit prior to the straight...

E Röhner, G Matziolis
The dual mobility cup (DMC) is an increasingly important tool not only in primary but also in revision total hip arthroplasty to prevent dislocation and eventually reduce postoperative complication rates. Various studies have shown survival rates with DMCs of up to 100% with an average dislocation rate of less than 1.5% after primary hip arthroplasty and a follow-up of 10 years. In revision surgery, survival rates of up to 99% were reported with dislocation rates between 0 and 10% after an average of 5 years after implantation...

Thierry Aslanian
PURPOSE: Although the natural history of dual mobility has been exclusively borne for 20 years by a single company (due to industrial ownership), the concept has undeniably been very widely popularised with nearly 40 cups on the French market which should be regarded as a weight bearing surface, both broadly and in their own right. However, within the same original idea, these implants are not all identical (design, material, fixation ect.).The aim of this work is to propose a classification of different dual mobility cups by distinguishing between thegeneral characteristics of a conventional cup and those particular to this type of implant...

PURPOSE: Preoperative on-screen templating is a method of using acetate templates on digital images. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the accuracy, intra- and interobserver reliabilities of preoperative on-screen templating using digital radiographs for total hip arthroplasty (THA). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two hundred patients with hip disease who were treated with primary cementless THA were retrospectively evaluated. The accuracy of on-screen templating was assessed by comparing the predicted prosthesis sizes with the actual sizes used operatively...

In this study, known products from oxic transformation of the X-ray contrast medium iopromide were introduced for the first time as intrinsic tracer for in situ characterization of the transition zone between oxic and suboxic conditions during the initial phase of soil-aquifer treatment (SAT). Two wet-dry cycles of a full-scale infiltration basin were monitored to characterize hydraulic retention times, redox conditions, removal of bulk organic parameters and the fate of chemicals of emerging concern (CECs)...

Background and purpose - The use of a cemented cup together with an uncemented stem in total hip arthroplasty (THA) has become popular in Norway and Sweden during the last decade. The results of this prosthetic concept, reverse hybrid THA, have been sparsely described. The Nordic Arthroplasty Register Association (NARA) has already published 2 papers describing results of reverse hybrid THAs in different age groups. Based on data collected over 2 additional years, we wanted to perform in depth analyses of not only the reverse hybrid concept but also of the different cup/stem combinations used...

Green tea is a commonly consumed beverage in Asia and has been suggested to have anticarcinogenic properties. To date, epidemiological evidence of the effect of green tea consumption on liver cancer risk remains ambiguous. The aim of this meta-analysis is to evaluate the association between green tea consumption and the risk of liver cancer. The summary relative risk for the highest consumption (≥5 cups/day) of green tea on liver cancer incidence compared with nondrinkers was 0.62 (95% confidence interval: 0...

RATIONALE: IMS 7f-GEO isotope ratio applications increasingly involve analyses (e.g., S(-) or O(-) isotopes, coupled with primary ion currents < 30 pA) for which quasi-simultaneous arrival (QSA) could compromise precision and accuracy of data. QSA and associated correction have been widely investigated for the CAMECA NanoSIMS instruments, but not for the IMS series. METHODS: Sulfur and oxygen isotopic ratio experiments were performed using an electron multiplier (EM) detector, employing Cs(+) primary ion currents of 1, 2, 5 and 11...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to analyze dual mobility cup survival rate on young patients under 50 years old at more than 20 years of follow up. METHODS: One hundred thirty seven hips with a first generation of dual mobility Bousquet cup (Serf) were included. The mean age at the time of the surgery was 41 years and the mean follow-up was 21.9 years. RESULTS: Twenty year follow-up cup survival rate was 77%. No dislocation occurred, 44 hips were revised (including 21 cup aseptic loosenings isolated, 15 Intra Prosthetic Dislocations), seven hips were lost to follow-up, 11 patients died, and 75 hips were still in situ...

REVIEW
Luigi Zagra, Eleonora Caboni
Dual mobility cups are getting increasing interest for the prevention, but also in the treatment of THA instability. Nevertheless when a dislocation occurs the main issue remains the knowledge and the correction of the causes of dislocation, including reorientation of the components and soft tissues treatment. There are several options of alternative implants to DMCs including upsizing of the head, and constrained liners. The Authors present how to evaluate patients with THA instability, the advantages and the disadvantages of each procedure and their experience in the treatment of cases without DMCs during a five years' time period...

INTRODUCTION: Total hip arthroplasty (THA) with uncemented implants has been a relatively common procedure in Finland during the recent decades. The most common brand of uncemented implants was chosen for further analysis to study the survivorship of this uncemented cup design in comparison to cemented references. PATIENTS, MATERIALS AND METHODS: Since 1980, The Finnish Arthroplasty Register has collected information on THAs on a national level. This study was based on information of THAs recorded in the Finnish Arthroplasty Register from 1985 to 2013...

New methods, derived from animal work, for measuring food reward value, i.e. reinforcing value of food, and motivation (i.e. strength of desire) to consume, in humans are described and validated. A sipping device (sipometer) was developed that permits access to a liquid food or beverage on two reward schedules: continuous reinforcement (CR) and progressively increasing time spent exerting pressure on a straw (PR-schedule). In addition, a pictorial scale showing a cup, from which the 'amount wanted' could be marked was used to pre-test potential consumption...

#18
REVIEW
Nathan Nguyen, Vladimir Shteyn, Thomas J Melia
In response to intracellular stress events ranging from starvation to pathogen invasion, the cell activates one or more forms of macroautophagy. The key event in these related pathways is the de novo formation of a new organelle called the autophagosome, which surrounds and sequesters either random portions of the cytoplasm or selectively targets individual intracellular challenges. Thus the autophagosome is a flexible membrane platform with dimensions that ultimately depend upon the target cargo. The intermediate membrane, termed the phagophore or isolation membrane, is a cup-like structure with a clear concave face and a highly curved rim...

BACKGROUND: Studies that have previously examined the relationship between acetabular component inclination angle and polyethylene wear have shown increased wear of conventional polyethylene with high inclination angles. To date, there are no long-term in vivo studies examining the correlation between cup position and polyethylene wear with highly crosslinked polyethylene. METHODS: An institutional arthroplasty database was used to identify patients who had metal-on-highly crosslinked polyethylene primary total hip arthroplasty using the same component design with a minimum follow-up of 10 years...
