BACKGROUND: Members of the Maasai tribe spend their days either barefoot or wearing traditional shoes made from recycled car tires. Although they walk long distances (up to 60 km) daily, they do not generally experience foot ailments. Here, we compared parameters associated with the feet, ankles, and gait of middle-aged women in Korea and the Maasai tribe. METHODS: Foot length, calf circumference, hindfoot alignment, step length, cadence, and walking velocity were compared among 20 middle-aged Korean and bush-living Maasai women...

An extremely rare case with delayed-onset heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is described. A 46-year-old man underwent arch replacement for aortic dissection under cardiopulmonary bypass and initial exposure of unfractionated heparin. In post operative 7 days, persistent atrial fibrillation was occurred, so a continuous infusion of heparin (10000 IU/day) and Vitamine K antagonist (Warfarin) taking was started for preventing thrombosis. By 32 days after the operation, his platelet count had fallen (3×10(3)/µL) and oral hematoma and ecchymoma of bilateral lower legs were occurred...

BACKGROUND: Quality of life (QoL) is an important outcome measure in the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR), a condition for which homeopathy is frequently used. OBJECTIVE: The assessment of the effect of homeopathic medical prescriptions with the Rhino-conjunctivitis Quality of Life Questionnaire (RQLQ) in the treatment of SAR. METHODS: A prospective, open, non-comparative study was conducted in Belgium. Patients aged between 14 and 68 years with SAR were treated by one of seven homeopathic physicians...

Among the fragments of Heraclitus preserved to our times there is one saying that corpses ought to be disposed of more urgently than excrements Diels/Kranz 22 B 96. This sentence of an aphoristic nature, as frequently in the case of Heraclitus' scripts, allows many different interpretations. Even in antiquity these words led to vitriolic reactions and perplexed other writers. It is why they have been frequently quoted. Nevertheless, it has been overlooked until now that Euripides, the youngest of the three great Attic tragedians, had inserted them into one of his dramas...

PURPOSE: To assess multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) findings in facial trauma in adults who accidentally fall from heights. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Of the MDCT scans of 2413 cases requested by emergency-room physicians for suspected facial injury, 155 (age 15.3-76.7, mean 42.0 years; 134 male, 21 female) met the criteria of falling from heights. These were reviewed by two researchers by consensus. RESULTS: Of these 155, 118 (104 male, 14 female) had 247 fractures, while 37 had no fracture...

In this work, we present an experimental study of the jamming that stops the free flow of grains from a silo discharging by gravity. When the outlet size is not much bigger than the beads, granular material jams the outlet of the container due to the formation of an arch. Statistical data from the number of grains fallen between consecutive jams are presented. The information that they provide can help one to understand the jamming phenomenon. As the ratio between the size of the orifice and the size of the beads is increased, the probability that an arch blocks the outlet decreases...

OBJECTIVE: To discuss a case of occipital-atlantoaxial rotatory subluxation successfully treated with manipulation under general anesthesia. CLINICAL FEATURES: A 4-year-old girl presented to the Taichung Veterans General Hospital with acute torticollis and neck stiffness for 1 week after she had fallen. Although some nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs had been prescribed for her, her neck still tilted to the right side and her chin inclined to the left side. There were no neurological signs, no significant pain if she did not move her neck and head, and no muscular hypertonocity...

New technology and advances in extracorporeal bypass circuitry and surgical techniques have drastically improved outcomes in infants with congenital heart defects. Hypothermia with circulatory arrest has fallen out of favor in many institutions over the last decade in part from data implicating even short circulatory arrest times to long-term neurologic sequelae. Implementing continuous cerebral perfusion techniques for aortic arch reconstruction is desirable in ameliorating neurologic complications because long-term survival of complex defects can be more routinely achieved...

Posterior tibial tendon insufficiency, or adult acquired flatfoot deformity, involves collapse of the longitudinal arch of the foot with ensuing changes in the bony architecture of the foot as well. While it is generally accepted that a medializing calcaneal osteotomy (MCO) is a very useful treatment for restoring the fallen arch, questions regarding the effects of this procedure upon plantar foot pressures and Achilles tendon length changes need to be answered. This study focuses on changes in plantar foot pressures and Achilles tendon length as the result of performing a MCO...

From early April into mid-June 1977, sequential groups of juvenile rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and brown trout (Salmo trutta) were each exposed for 10 days to the parasite Myxobolus cerebralis by immersion in a stream inhabited by infected wild trout. Following incubation in a M. cerebralis-free facility, trout were subsequently killed, and heads and gill arches were examined by routine histologic methods. A grading scale to quantify lesion severity was developed and applied. Percentage infected, lesion severity scores, effects of water temperature and flow rates on percentage infected and lesion severity scores, and resulting pathology were determined for each species at each exposure period...

Penetrating head and neck trauma in children is uncommon and are potentially life-threatening injuries. Penetrating trauma to the head in children is a challenging problem for both the initial evaluating physicians and surgeons. We report upon a patient who had fallen from a tree while cutting vegetables and sustained a penetrating faciocranial injury caused by his knife. Clinical examination showed a knife which had entered his face in the right preauricular, pre-temporomandibular joint area below the zygomatic arch...

We reported a case of juvenile cerebral infarction following minor head injury. The patient, a 12-year-old girl, developed right hemiparesis and aphasia almost immediately after having fallen from about 1 meter height during the exercise class at school. CT and MRI study showed lacunar lesions bilaterally and almost symmetrically in the paraventricular deep white matter on both sides. A new stroke area, responsible for the symptoms, was recognized about 24 hours later on CT scan just next to the lacuna of the left side...

Sculpted autologous ossicle and cortical bone grafts were the first materials successfully used to reconstruct the ossicular chain in chronic ear surgery. Over the last 20 years, the use of biocompatible implants has been popularized; as a result, bone grafts have fallen into disfavor with most otologists. To determine if autologous bone grafts remain stable with time, 115 cases in which autologous bone grafts were used between 1971 and 1984 were reviewed. Eighty patients underwent Type III tympanoplasty, stapes arch present...

Giant cell arteritis (GCA) and polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) are common diseases in the elderly. The arteritis usually affects medium sized vessels, but large vessel involvement can also occur leading to arm claudication, bruits, loss of pulses and pallor of the upper extremities. The differential diagnosis of large vessel arteritis includes atherosclerosis and Takayasu's disease. Atherosclerosis, which affects patients of similar age to GCA is usually confined to the lower limbs and can be differentiated on the basis of the clinical setting and investigations such as the ESR, arteriography and temporal artery biopsy...
