  • Extensor tendon ruptures in rheumatoid wrists. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol. 2020 Jul 03 [Online ahead of print]Biehl C, Rupp M, … Szalay G
  • CONCLUSIONS: In rheumatoid patients, a rupture of an extensor tendon must be expected at 4%. Patients tolerate and compensate this damage for a long time. The function of the hand including the tendon function is the most important factor in assessing the success of the operation. The subjective patient acceptance depends on the progress of the underlying disease, postoperative care (ergotherapy, physiotherapy, orthosis) and the patients' demands.
  • Alterations in forearm muscle activation patterns after scapholunate interosseous ligament injury: A dynamic electromyography study. [Journal Article]
    J Hand Ther. 2020 Jun 30 [Online ahead of print]Eraktas İ, Ayhan C, … Soylu AR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Dynamic stabilization of the wrist, flexor carpi ulnaris, and flexor carpi radialis muscles have been shown to play an active role with ECU and ECR. Increased ECU and decreased ECR activation may pose a potential risk in terms of enhancing the scapholunate gap. We, therefore, propose that appropriate preventive neuromuscular exercise strategies implemented as part of a physiotherapy program for patients with SLIL lesions might increase the contribution of the dynamic stability effect of the relevant muscles.
  • Evidence for improved systemic and local vascular function after long-term passive static stretching training of the musculoskeletal system. [Journal Article]
    J Physiol. 2020 Jul 01 [Online ahead of print]Bisconti AV, Cè E, … Esposito F
  • CONCLUSIONS: Vascular function and arterial stiffness are important markers of cardiovascular health and cardiovascular co-morbidity. Transitional phases of hypoemia and hypermia, with consequent fluctuations in shear rate, occuring during repetitive passive stretching adminstration (passive stretching training) may constitute an effective stimulus to induce an amelioration in vascular function, arterial stiffness and vascular remodelling by improving central and local blood flow control mechanisms. Vascular function, arterial stiffness and vascular remodelling were evaluated before and after 12 weeks of passive stretching training and after 6 weeks from training cessation, in the femoral, popliteal (treated with stretching), and brachial arteries (untreated) of both sides. After passive stretching training, vascular function and arterial remodelling improved, and arterial stiffness decreased in all the arteries, suggesting modifications of both central and local blood flow control mechanisms. Passive stretching-induced improvements related to central mechanisms seemed to have a short duration, as they returned to pre-training baseline within 6 weeks from training cessation, whereas those more related to a local mechanism persisted in the follow-up.
  • Mechanical Differences Between Adolescents and Adults During Two Landing Phases of a Drop Jump Task. [Journal Article]
    J Strength Cond Res. 2020 Jun 24 [Online ahead of print]Moir GL, Munford SN, … Davis SE
  • Moir, GL, Munford, SN, Snyder, BW, and Davis, SE. Mechanical differences between adolescents and adults during two landing phases of a drop jump task. J Strength Cond Res XX(X): 000-000, 2020-The mechanical differences between the first and second landing phases of a drop jump (DJ) task performed by adolescent and adult male players were investigated. Eleven adolescent basketball players (age: 16…
  • Fingertip Injuries and Amputations: A Review of the Literature. [Review]
    Cureus. 2020 May 26; 12(5):e8291.Kawaiah A, Thakur M, … Hassan A
  • The fingertip is defined as the part of the digit distal to the insertion of the extensor and flexor tendons on the distal phalanx. Devastating injuries to the hand occur every year that lead fingertip amputations in thousands of people. The highest incidence rates are usually seen in children less than five years old and in adults over the age of 65. There are various presentations of injury tha…
  • Diagnosis of dorsal screw penetration after volar plating of a distal radial fracture. [Journal Article]
    Bone Joint J. 2020 Jul; 102-B(7):874-880.Langerhuizen DWG, Bergsma M, … Doornberg JN
  • CONCLUSIONS: Advanced intraoperative imaging helps to identify screws which have penetrated the dorsal compartments of the wrist. However, based on diagnostic performance characteristics, one cannot conclude that 3D fluoroscopy outperforms dorsal tangential views when used for this purpose. Dorsal tangential views are sufficiently accurate to detect dorsal screw penetration, and arguably more efficacious than 3D fluoroscopy. Cite this article: Bone Joint J 2020;102-B(7):874-880.
  • Spectral Analysis of Heart Rate Variability During Trigger-Point Acupuncture of Various Muscles. [Journal Article]
    Med Acupunct. 2020 Jun 01; 32(3):150-156.Kitagawa Y
  • Objective: The aim of this research was to clarify changes in cardiovascular autonomic nervous system function due to trigger-point (TP) acupuncture; the current author evaluated differences in responses among acupuncture at TPs of various muscles using spectral analysis of heart rate variability. Materials and Methods: Subjects were 48 healthy men. Before measurements began, subjects were assi…
  • Bilateral swelling of the forearms revealing muscular sarcoidosis: a case-based review. [Review]
    Clin Rheumatol. 2020 Jun 27 [Online ahead of print]Ahmed Ghassem M, El Maghraoui A, … Achemlal L
  • Muscular sarcoidosis is rarely symptomatic and mainly affects proximal muscles of the lower extremities. However, the distal localization in the upper extremities is rare. We used systematic approach to analyze all relevant literature review and we identified only three cases of muscular sarcoidosis of the upper extremities. We report the case of a 56-year-old woman who presented distal and bilat…
  • Bilateral Quadriceps Tendon Repair with Suture Anchors: Case Series. [Journal Article]
    Perm J. 2020; 24Tucker JE, Jones CR
  • CONCLUSIONS: These quadriceps tendon ruptures occurred in patients with a predisposition to injury as a result of excessive weight bearing. When addressing bilateral quadriceps tendon ruptures in this patient population, we found that a suture anchor-based construct allows for a secure repair, early initiation of physical therapy, and a noted improvement in pain scores on the Visual Analog Scale.
  • Is the cross-finger flap a good option at the extensor zone defect? [Journal Article]
    Jt Dis Relat Surg. 2020; 31(2):267-272.Ekinci Y, Gürbüz K
  • CONCLUSIONS: Due to reasons such as minimal donor site morbidity, satisfactory functional finger outcomes, and easy applicability, reversed cross-finger subcutaneous flap is a good option for reconstruction of defects in the dorsal aspect of the finger with or without extensor mechanism defects.
