The occurrence of ameloblastic fibro-odontoma (AFO) in the oral region is unusual and accounts for 1-3% of all odontogenic tumors. AFO presents mixed radiopaque patterns within the lesion with diverse findings; therefore, it is important to compare this tumor with other odontogenic tumors that radiographically present with calcified bodies. Herein, we observed the calcification patterns within the lesion in seven AFO cases (five males, two females; mean age, 8.3 years; age range, 4-13 years). Periapical and panoramic radiographs were obtained from all seven cases...

INTRODUCTION: Neurologic paralysis of the foot due to damage to the central nervous system is primarily caused by a cerebral insult. The ankle-foot orthosis (AFO), which is the classical conservative treatment option, is associated with drawbacks, e.g., increased contractures, limited mobilization from the sitting position, and cosmetic aspects. METHODS: Functional external electrostimulation (FES) is an suitable treatment method for patients with a central lesion and intact peroneal nerve...

Musculoskeletal modeling and simulation techniques have been used to gain insights into movement disabilities for many populations, such as ambulatory children with cerebral palsy (CP). The individuals who can benefit from these techniques are often limited to those who can walk without assistive devices, due to challenges in accurately modeling these devices. Specifically, many children with CP require the use of ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs) to improve their walking ability, and modeling these devices is important to understand their role in walking mechanics...

The separation of carbon dioxide from flue gas is essential for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. In adsorptive methods, the challenge lies in the choice of suitable porous materials. Among all zeolite topologies, a number of adsorbents with pore dimensions in the range of the guest molecules were identified to allow an excellent separation by diffusion, and MRE and AFO zeolite topologies appear to be the best candidates based on equilibrium adsorption. Also, it was found that the behavior of this gas mixture in DFT and APD zeolites differed from the normal behavior...

OBJECTIVE: Toe filler combined to ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) can be used to improve gait after a partial foot amputation. The AFO supports the plantar aspect of the foot, and the toe filler gives a longer lever arm that helps for pivoting over the lost metatarsals. However, the AFO type can influence gait parameters. The objective of this study case was to evaluate the effect of prosthesis with toe filler combined to: - an articulated AFO; - a fixed carbon-fiber AFO on gait. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A gait analysis was practiced on a 20-year-old male with a partial foot amputation...

BACKGROUND: Many individuals with cerebral palsy wear ankle foot orthoses during daily life. Orthoses influence joint motion, but how they impact muscle remains unclear. In particular, the gastrocnemius is commonly stiff in cerebral palsy. Understanding whether orthoses stretch or shorten this muscle during daily life may inform orthosis design and rehabilitation. OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the impact of different ankle foot orthoses on gastrocnemius operating length during walking in children with cerebral palsy...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Foot equinus and leg length discrepancy (LLD) are common problems in hemiplegic cerebral palsy (hCP), both causing secondary deviations of pelvic motion during gait. It can therefore be assumed that the spinal deviations observed in hCP patients are secondary as a compensation for the position of the pelvis arising from the disturbed leg function. This study investigated the effects of correcting lower extremity function by orthotics on spinal gait kinematics in hCP patients...

Flavonoids are a large class of polyphenolic compounds ubiquitously distributed in dietary plants with an array of biological activities. Flavonols are a major sub-class of flavonoids featuring a hydroxyl group at C-3. Certain natural flavonols, such as quercetin and fisetin, have been shown by in vitro cell-based and in vivo animal experiments to be potential anti-prostate cancer agents. However, the Achilles' heel of flavonols as drug candidates is their moderate potency and poor pharmacokinetic profiles...

BACKGROUND: Proprioception is important for proper motor control. As the central nervous system modulates how sensory information is processed during movement (sensory gating), proprioceptive tests performed at rest do not correlate well with performance during dynamic tasks such as walking. Proprioception therefore needs to be assessed during movement execution. OBJECTIVES: 1) To develop a test evaluating the ability to detect movement errors during walking, and its test-retest reliability; 2) to quantify the relationship between proprioceptive threshold (obtained with this new test) and performance in a standardized dynamic balance task...
