Upper extremity function has a strong impact on the quality of life in cervical spinal cord-injured patients. Upper extremity function depends on many factors, such as muscle strength, level of lesion, and extension of the cord damage in its axial axis produced by the injury. These variables can be obtained by the International Standards for Neurological Classification of Spinal Cord Injury, which is the standard for the functional evaluation of traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) patients. The aim of this study was to describe the relationship between upper limb muscle strength, level of injury, and axial damage with the functionality of upper limb measured using the Jebsen-Taylor Hand Function Test (JTHFT) and the 9 Hole Peg Test (9HPT) in cervical SCI...

In recent years, there have been several important refinements in the classification of cutaneous mesenchymal neoplasms, including the description of new tumour types, along with the identification of novel and recurrent molecular genetic findings. In addition to providing new insights into tumour biology, many of these advances have had significant clinical consequences with regard to diagnostics, management, and prognostication. Newly described entities include pseudomyogenic haemangioendothelioma, haemosiderotic fibrolipomatous tumour, and fibroblastic connective tissue naevus, which are reviewed in the context of the principal differential diagnoses and significant clinical implications...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Colonoscopy provides a means for screening and removal of colon adenomas, preventing such lesions from progressing to late-stage carcinoma. No preclinical model currently exists that closely parallels the clinical scenario with respect to polyp resection and recovery after endoscopy. METHODS: When we used the polyposis in rat colon (Pirc) model, a new polypectomy methodology was developed. A novel PLC classification system (polyp number/location/clockwise orientation) also was devised in order to accurately and reproducibly specify the location of each lesion within the colon...

Muscle injuries are frequent in athletes. Despite their high incidence, advances in clinical diagnostic criteria and imaging, their optimal management and rehabilitation strategies are still debated in literature. Furthermore, reinjury rate is high after a muscle lesion, and an improper treatment or an early return to sports can increase the rate of reinjury and complications. Most muscle injuries are managed conservatively with excellent results, and surgery is normally advocated only for larger tears. This article reviews the current literature to provide physicians and rehabilitation specialists with the necessary basic tools to diagnose, classify and to treat muscle injuries...

Dermatomyositis (DM) is an idiopathic inflammatory myopathy (IIM) characterized by an inflammatory infiltrate primarily affecting the skeletal muscle and skin. Most common and peculiar cutaneous lesions include Gottron's papules, Gottron's sign and heliotrope rash. Different DM subsets have been identified until now encompassing classic DM, amyopathic DM, hypomyopathic DM, post-myopathic DM, and DM sine dermatitis. Patients with DM have a higher incidence rate of malignancy than the normal population. In these patients cancer occurs in about 30% of cases with higher occurrence in men and in elderly people...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral palsy (CP) results from a static brain lesion during pregnancy or early life and remains the most common cause of physical disability in children (1 in 500). While the brain lesion is static, the physical manifestations and medical issues may progress resulting in altered motor patterns. To date, there are no prospective longitudinal studies of CP that follow a birth cohort to track early gross and fine motor development and use Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to determine the anatomical pattern and likely timing of the brain lesion...

Cardiopulmonary involvement in adult-onset Still's disease is not as common as cutaneous and articular involvement. Pleuropericarditis is the most frequent thoracic manifestation. Although difficult, diagnosis of other thoracic manifestations, which may reveal the disease, is crucial, due to the high risk to life and the efficacy of new immunosuppressive agents. The pathophysiology involves essentially immunological factors, Still's disease being increasingly seen as an autoimmune inflammatory disease. Pro-inflammatory cytokines such as interleukine (IL) 1, 6 and 18 play a crucial role in macrophage activation, which is central in the pathophysiology of adult Still's disease...

BACKGROUND: The absence of a coherent classification system has hampered communication about the treatment and outcomes of the various types of subscapularis tendon lesions. In addition, a reliable classification system allows comparisons of epidemiological and therapeutic data. The classification systems used until now fail to incorporate the radiological and intraoperative abnormalities of the bicipital sling, and they do not consider the degree of subscapularis tendon cleavage. Here, we describe a new arthroscopy-based classification system intended for therapeutic and prognostic purposes...

BACKGROUND: Diabetic foot syndrome is a complication of diabetes mellitus that has serious socioeconomic implications for the individual, family and the society as a whole. When there are ulcers, the condition becomes limb threatening. Early detection of the risk factors and appropriate management of the ulcers reduces the incidence of amputations, morbidity and mortality. OBJECTIVE: To find the pattern of diabetic foot laesions (DFL) as seen at the orthopaedic clinic of Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital, Sokoto, Nigeria over a five-year period and to present a classification of DFL...

BACKGROUND: A precise understanding of the mechanism of human neointimal stenoses and atherosclerotic fibrous plaques, which give rise to thromboses in vital arteries, requires a suitable animal model that would mimic the same characteristics well. We developed a rabbit model of neointimal stenosis and fibrotic plaque rupture in the carotid artery to visualize the lesion progress and to characterize the lesion types according to the American Heart Association classification. METHODS: Twenty-eight healthy male New Zealand white rabbits were randomly divided into two groups: The rabbits in group A (n = 14) consumed a standard chow diet, and those in group B (n = 14) were injured via perivascular cold injury using liquid nitrogen at the right common carotid artery before being fed a high cholesterol diet (1...

PURPOSE: To better define and classify acute muscle strain injuries. METHODS: Historically, acute muscle strains have been classified as grade I, II and III. This system does not accurately reflect the anatomy of the injury and has not been shown to reliably predict prognosis and time for return to sport. RESULTS: We describe an imaging (magnetic resonance or ultrasound) nomenclature, which considers the anatomical site, pattern and severity of the lesion in the acute stage...
