Michael J Mullaney, Takumi Fukunaga
Patellofemoral disorders, commonly encountered in sports and orthopedic rehabilitation settings, may result from dysfunction in patellofemoral joint compression. Osseous and soft tissue factors, as well as the mechanical interaction of the two, contribute to increased patellofemoral compression and pain. Treatment of patellofemoral compressive issues is based on identification of contributory impairments. Use of reliable tests and measures is essential in detecting impairments in hip flexor, quadriceps, iliotibial band, hamstrings, and gastrocnemius flexibility, as well as in joint mobility, myofascial restrictions, and proximal muscle weakness...

Michael S Gart, Thomas A Wiedrich
The approach to rehabilitation of upper extremity injuries in athletes differs from traditional rehabilitation protocols. In general, athletes have higher functional demands and wish to return to competitive sport in a timely manner. Comprehensive rehabilitation must therefore be balanced with a timely and safe return to sport. Several rehabilitation programs and adjunctive therapies are available to hasten convalescence while minimizing the athlete's risks of reinjury. Here, we review techniques for soft tissue mobilization and strength training in athletic populations...

The multifidus muscle fascicles of horses attach to vertebral spinous processes after crossing between one to six metameres. The fascicles within one or two metameres are difficult to distinguish in horses. A vertebral motion segment is anatomically formed by two adjacent vertebrae and the interposed soft tissue structures, and excessive mobility of a vertebral motion segment frequently causes osteoarthropathies in sport horses. The importance of the equine multifidus muscle as a vertebral motion segment stabilizer has been demonstrated; however, there is scant documentation of the structure and function of this muscle...

BACKGROUND: Rotating hinge and mobile bearing tray knee replacement designs utilize a single fixed axis for tibial rotation, yet there is little published information regarding the natural internal-external axis (IEA) for tibial rotation. Identifying the IEA should provide an opportunity for reproducing normal knee kinematics and maintaining the balance of forces in the soft tissues that help control rotation of the tibia. METHODS: The location and orientation of the IEA relative to the tibial plateau were calculated in 46 fresh frozen human cadaveric specimens using an instant center of rotation analysis at fixed knee flexion angles ranging from five degrees to 105°...

The length of the stump and the quality of the soft tissue coverage are important for prosthesis fitting and mobility. In a high traumatic femoral amputation soft tissue reconstruction with a free musculocutaneous latissimus dorsi (LD) flap was performed to preserve bone length and provide proper tissue coverage. The extremely short stump was later on lengthened using a motorized intramedullary nail (Fitbone), and the achieved bone-lengthening was 14 cm. With the combined modalities of an LD-flap and Fitbone lengthening of the stump, the patient now has a useful limb function...

BACKGROUND: Patients with primary bone and soft tissue sarcoma are at risk for skeletal metastases. Although uncommon, these metastases can result in impending or pathologic fractures. Intramedullary nailing traditionally has been an accepted form of palliative treatment for patients with metastatic carcinoma, but we could find no studies that report specifically on intramedullary nailing of metastatic sarcoma lesions. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We asked: (1) What is the survival of patients with an impending or pathologic fracture from a sarcoma metastasis? (2) What proportion of patients treated with intramedullary nailing subsequently underwent a revision procedure or nail removal during their lifetimes? METHODS: Between 1996 and 2014, we performed 40 intramedullary nailing procedures in 34 patients with multifocal metastases from sarcomas who showed signs or symptoms of impending fracture or who presented with a pathologic fracture...

Pressure ulcers are a type of local soft tissue injury due to sustained mechanical loading and remain a common issue in patient care. People with spinal cord injury (SCI) are especially at risk of pressure ulcers due to impaired mobility and sensory perception. The development of load improving support structures relies on realistic tissue load evaluation e.g. using finite element analysis (FEA). FEA requires realistic subject-specific mechanical properties and geometries. This study focuses on the effect of geometry...

Background and purpose - Medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) is undertaken in patients with a passively correctable varus deformity. We investigated whether restoration of natural soft tissue tension would result in a lower limb alignment similar to that of the contralateral unaffected lower limb after mobile-bearing medial UKA. Patients and methods - In this retrospective study, hip-knee-ankle (HKA) angle, position of the weight-bearing axis (WBA), and knee joint line obliquity (KJLO) after mobile-bearing medial UKA was compared with that of the unaffected (clinically and radiologically) contralateral lower limb in 123 patients...

Restoration of stability of the thumb represents an enormous gain of function for the patient and can be achieved by arthrodesis or ligament reconstruction. Ligament reconstruction should only be performed if good stability and mobility and a pain-free grip can also be achieved. In every case surgery must protect the delicate soft tissues and should be based on a profound knowledge of the anatomical and biomechanical circumstances. Instability of the trapeziometacarpal joint is rare but metacarpophalangeal joint instability (ulnar, palmar and radial) is relatively frequent...

BACKGROUND: Cysticercosis is a parasitic infection caused by the larval stages of the pork tapeworm, Taenia solium. The subcutaneous form of the disease is a relatively rare clinical entity. Despite its rarity, it is imperative for a radiologist to be aware of this subcutaneous form of the disease and its various radiological patterns while evaluating any subcutaneous swelling. In this paper, we aimed to describe a typical case of 'subcutaneous cysticercosis involving the left anterior chest wall' with high resolution ultrasound findings...
