The author identifies main etiologic factors causing intoeing in children. The levels hip joint and proximal femur-tibial torsion and foot deformities are followed. Among foot deformities metatarsus varus in pointed out and described, as the literature is not yet uniform about strict criteria. The clinical appearance is shown and X-ray signs-subluxation of os naviculare laterally on talus and changes of shape of os cuneiforme primum are mentioned. Discussed is conservative therapy-excersises and plaster casts...

Chronic venous disease affecting one-third of the European population has a considerable socioeconomic impact. There is increasing evidence, that the structural remodelling of the vein wall is caused by two etiological factors: the disturbed flow patterns in cosequence of the high venous pressure and a progressive inflammatory cascade. In the microcirculation the trapping of the white cells and the leukocyte-endothelium interaction lead to skin changes and leg ulcer. The CEAP classification has been adopted world-wide to faciliate the uniform communication and the description of all classes of the disease...

Adult patients with metabolic myopathies typically present with exercise-induced pain, cramps, fatigue, and myoglobinuria. The current therapeutic options of glycogen and lipid storage myopathies include dietary treatments, excersise training, and pharmacological supplementations. Herein is a review of evidence from randomized controlled trials in McArdle disease (glycogen storage disease type V, muscle phosphorylase deficiency) and carnitine palmitoyltransferase (CPT) 2 deficiency. A brief overview on current treatment options in rhabdomyolysis is also included because patients with McArdle disease and CPT 2 often experience such potentially life-threatening complications...

THE AIM OF THE STUDY: The aim of this study was to assess of treatment of spasticity in children with baclofen pump, before and after pump implantation. MATERIAL AND METHOD: In a group of 17 patients with spastic hemiparesis, with a different etiology, 2 groups were separated. In the group of 12 the most injured children, spasticity was measured by The Modified Ashworth Scale, before and after baclofen pump implantation. In the group of 5 patients spasticity was assessed by The Modified Ashworth Scale, functional benefits were evaluated with the Barthel index score, and the digree of disability with the Rankin Scale...

Relationships between muscular strength and the level of energy sources in the muscle. Acta Physiol. Pol., 1978, 29 (2): 139--151. An attempt was made to establish a relationship between the post-excercise changes in the level of anaerobic energy sources and changes in the muscular strength. The gastrocnemius muscle of Wistar rats was examined. The muscle strength was measured by the resistance tensometry. In muscle specimens ATP, CP and glycogen contents were determined. It was demonstrated that changes in the post-excersise muscle response to electric stimulus have a phasic character resembling the overcompensation curve...
