BACKGROUND: Syngnathia is a congenital craniofacial disorder characterized by bony or soft tissue fusion of upper and lower jaws. Previous studies suggested some causative signals, such as Foxc1 or Bmp4, cause the disruption of maxillomandibular identity, but their location and the interactive signals involved remain unexplored. We thus wanted to examine the embryonic origin of syngnathia based on the assumption that it may be located at the separation between the maxillary and mandibular processes...

This current concepts review outlines the role of different imaging modalities in the diagnosis, preoperative planning, and follow-up of osteochondral ankle defects. An osteochondral ankle defect involves the articular cartilage and subchondral bone (usually of the talus) and is mostly caused by an ankle supination trauma. Conventional radiographs are useful as an initial imaging tool in the diagnostic process, but have only moderate sensitivity for the detection of osteochondral defects. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are more accurate imaging modalities...

BACKGROUND: Medical marijuana (MMJ) laws and policies have evolved rapidly over the past decade in the United States. Public health concerns over the impact of these laws might be influenced by the degree of MMJ participation, but little is known about changes to this population over time. Trends in registered MMJ participation are described for 13 states in the US and District of Columbia (DC) since 2001. METHODS: Numbers of MMJ participants were obtained from state MMJ patient registries...

BACKGROUND: The cause of ankle osteoarthritis (OA) is usually trauma. Patients are relatively young, since ankle trauma occurs at a relatively young age. Several conservative treatment options are available, evidence of the benefits and harms of these options are lacking. OBJECTIVES: To assess the benefits and harms of any conservative treatment for ankle OA in adults in order to provide a synthesis of the evidence as a base for future treatment guidelines. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL 2014, issue 9), MEDLINE (Ovid) (1946 up to 11 September 2014), EMBASE (1947 to September 2014), PsycINFO (1806 to September 2014), CINAHL (1985 to September 2014), PEDro (all years till September 2014), AMED until September 2014, ClinicalTrials...

BACKGROUND: The Reflux Finding Score for Infants (RFS-I) was developed to objectively assess signs of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR). Based on review of flexible laryngoscopic videos, only moderate inter- and highly variable intraobserver reliability was found. We hypothesized that examination of the infant larynx with rigid laryngoscopy would provide better agreement. AIM: to assess the validity of the RFS-I in the detection of LPR-related findings using flexible versus rigid laryngoscopy...

PURPOSE: Procedures involving needles are the most common and major sources of pain in children. External cold and vibration via Buzzy (MMJ Labs, Atlanta, GA) is a method that combines cooling and vibration. DESIGN: This study investigated the effect of the combined stimulation of skin with external cold and vibration via Buzzy on the pain and anxiety levels in children during immunization. METHODS: This study was a prospective, randomized controlled trial...

INTRODUCTION: Injury of the lateral ligament complex of the ankle joint occurs in about one in 10,000 people a day, accounting for a quarter of all sports injuries. METHODS AND OUTCOMES: We conducted a systematic review and aimed to answer the following clinical question: What are the effects of treatment strategies for acute ankle ligament ruptures? We searched: Medline, Embase, The Cochrane Library, and other important databases up to November 2009 (Clinical Evidence reviews are updated periodically, please check our website for the most up-to-date version of this review)...

The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of speaking rate variation on aerodynamic and acoustic measures of velopharyngeal (VP) function. Twenty-seven healthy adult speakers (14 males, 13 females) participated in the study. The modified pressure-flow method was used to collect aerodynamic data of /m/ and /p/ segments in the word 'hamper' and the utterances 'Mama made some lemon jam' (MMJ) and 'Buy Bobby a puppy' (BBP). SPL was collected simultaneously with aerodynamic data for all utterances. A Nasometer was used to obtain nasalance scores and nasalance distance for MMJ and BBP...

BACKGROUND: Patellofemoral pain syndrome is a frequently reported condition in active adults. A wide variety of conservative treatment strategies have been described. As yet, no optimal strategy has been identified. Application of orthotic devices e.g. knee braces, knee straps, forms of taping of the knee, active training devices, knee sleeves and inlay soles to support the foot have been advocated to treat this condition. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness of foot and knee orthotics for treatment of patellofemoral pain syndrome...

BACKGROUND: We present the design of an open randomized multi-centre study on surgical versus conservative treatment of acute Achilles tendon ruptures. The study is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of conservative treatment in reducing complications when treating acute Achilles tendon rupture. METHODS/DESIGN: At least 72 patients with acute Achilles tendon rupture will be randomized to minimally invasive surgical repair followed by functional rehabilitation using tape bandage or conservative treatment followed by functional rehabilitation with use of a functional bracing system...

By using serial mutations, i.e., a residue replaced by 19 kinds of naturally occurring residues, the stability of native conformation and folding behavior of mutated sequences are studied. The 3 x 3 x 3 lattice protein model with two kinds of interaction potentials between the residues, namely the original Miyazawa and Jernigan (MJ) potentials and the modified MJ potentials (MMJ), is used. Effects of various sites in the mutated sequences on the stability and foldability are characterized through the Z-score and the folding time...

OBJECTIVE: To study the ultrastructural changes of neuromuscular junction (NMJ) in patients with lambert-Eaton myasthenia syndrome (LEMS) and mitochondrial encephalomyopathy (MEMS). METHODS: The MMJ of internal intercostal muscles from patients with LEMS, MEMS or cardiac disease (control group) was labelled by HRP-BuTx and was quantitatively studied using image analysis system on electron microscopic photo. RESULTS: The ratio of nerve terminal area with postsynaptic membrane of NMJ was less in the MEMS group than controls...

OBJECTIVE: To find out how much information of the Vancouver Norms (VANNOR) are given to prospective authors in the Instructions for Authors (IFA) in a sample of Mexican medical journals (MMJ) published in 1994 and 1995. DESIGN: Prospective, cross sectional, descriptive, observational. MEASUREMENTS: The IFA in the last issue of the MMJ that were published in 1994 and 1995, were reviewed and 121 characteristics in the VANNOR were scored in nine categories (characteristics, presentation, title page, summary and key words, text order and contents, references, tables, illustrations and other instructions)...

We studied unidirectional [14C]HCO3- efflux from human resealed red cell ghosts with 1 mM acetazolamide under self-exchange conditions at pH = pH(i = o) 7.4-9.0 and 0-38 degrees C by means of the Millipore-Swinnex and continuous flow tube filtering techniques. 14CO2 loss from cells to efflux medium and further to the atmosphere was insignificant. [14C]HCO3- efflux was determined at pH 7.8, 38 degrees C under symmetric variation of the HCO3- concentrations (C(i = o)), and asymmetric conditions: C(i) varied, C(o) constant, or C(o) varied, C(i) constant...

OBJECTIVE: To find out how much information of the Vancouver norms (VANNOR) are given to prospective authors in the instructions for authors (IFA) in some Mexican medical journals (MMJ). DESIGN: Prospective, cross sectional, descriptive, observational. MEASUREMENTS: To score the IFA in the MMJ published between 1989 and 1991. The scoring was done on the basis of presence in the IFA of the VANNOR characteristics grouped in categories (characteristics and presentation of the manuscript, title page, summary and keywords, text order and contents, references, tables, illustrations, and other instructions)...
