- Non O1 Vibrio cholerae as a cause of bacteremic lower limb cellulitis: A case report. [Journal Article]Int J Surg Case Rep 2019; 64:62-65IJ
- CONCLUSIONS: Upon review of literature, we only found few cases have been reported of cellulitis due to V. cholerae. A degree of hepatic impairment or immunocompromised state like Diabetes Mellitus, chronic infections, malignancies, and peripheral vascular disease are seen in the majority of non-gastrointestinal V. cholerae infections which suggests that it should be included in the differential diagnosis of bacteremic skin and soft tissue infections in patients with underlying illnesses.Cholerae should be included in the differential diagnosis of any bacteremic skin and soft tissue infections especially in elderly, comorbid and immune-compromised patients. Well-timed, proper antibiotic and surgical treatments are important in management of the infection to decrease morbidity and mortality.
- Automated and objective measures of gait dynamics in camptocormia Parkinson's Disease subthalamic deep brain stimulation. [Journal Article]Clin Neurol Neurosurg 2019; 186:105537CN
- CONCLUSIONS: The gait parameters and camptocormia of both patients objectively improved after surgery, as assessed by the two quantitative measurement systems. STN-DBS might have a beneficial effect on controlling axial posturing and gait, being a potential surgical treatment for camptocormia in patients with PD. However, further studies are needed to derive adequate selection criteria for this patient population.

The aim of this study was to investigate knee intra-articular cartilage volume changes after a prolonged running bout in three footwear conditions. Twelve participants performed 75-minute running bouts in the three footwear conditions. Before and after each running bout, MRI scans were obtained using a high-resolution 3.0 Tesla MRI. Three-dimensional reconstruction of the cartilage plates of the patella, the femur and the tibia were created to quantify cartilage volume change due to the 75-minute running bout. Three-dimensional biomechanical data were also collected using an integrated motion capture and force treadmill system. There were no statistically significant differences among shoe conditions for all anatomical regions. However, significant cartilage volume reductions at all anatomical sites were observed after the 75-minute running bout in each footwear condition. These data suggest that the intra-articular knee cartilage undergoes a significant reduction in cartilage volume during a prolonged run that may indicate an increase in joint loading. There was a considerable variation in cartilage volume between participants across footwear conditions indicating an individual cartilage volume response to footwear. An individualistic approach to footwear recommendations may help in minimizing this change in cartilage.

There is strong evidence linking an athlete's movement technique during sidestepping with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury risk. However, it is unclear how these postures are influenced by prior movement. We aim to describe preparatory trunk and thigh kinematics at toe-off of the penultimate-step and flight-phase angular momenta, and explore their associations with frontal-plane risk factors during unplanned sidestepping maneuvers. We analyzed kinematic and kinetic data of 33 male Australian Football players performing unplanned sidestepping tasks (103 trials). Linear mixed models tested for reliable associations between ACL injury risk during weight acceptance of the execution-step, with preparatory kinematics and angular momenta of the trunk and thigh during the penultimate-step. Multi-planar flight-phase trunk momenta along with hip abduction angle at penultimate-step toe-off were significantly associated with peak knee valgus moments during the execution-step (R2 = 0.21, p < 0.01). Execution-step trunk lateral flexion was significantly predicted by frontal and sagittal-plane preparatory trunk positioning at toe-off of the penultimate-step (R2 = 0.44, p < 0.01). Multi-planar flight-phase trunk momentum, as well as multi-planar trunk and hip positioning at penultimate-step toe-off were associated with hip abduction during the execution-step (R2 = 0.53, p < 0.01). Preparatory positioning of the trunk and hip, along with flight-phase trunk momentum adjusting this positioning are linked to known ACL injury risk factors. We recommend during the penultimate-step athletes maintain an upright trunk as well as minimize frontal-plane trunk momentum and transverse-plane trunk momentum towards the sidestep direction to reduce risk of ACL injury during unplanned sidesteps.
- Long-Term Effects of Whole-Body Vibration in Trained Adolescent Swimmers: Does It Increase Strength, Power, and Swimming Performance? [Journal Article]Int J Sports Physiol Perform 2019; :1-7IJ
- CONCLUSIONS: There is no current evidence to support the use of WBV training, and therefore, coaches and sports specialists should select other methods of training when the aim is to increase LBS, LBP, or swimming performance.
- The Physiological Characteristics of an 83-Year-Old Champion Female Master Runner. [Journal Article]Int J Sports Physiol Perform 2019; :1-5IJ
- CONCLUSIONS: This single case study shows that the remarkable cardiorespiratory fitness coupled with intensive endurance training observed in a female master athlete was not associated with specific preservation of her muscular and skeletal characteristics.
- Clinical Effectiveness of 3 days Preoperative Treatment with Recombinant Human Erythropoietin in Total Knee Arthroplasty Surgery - A Clinical Trial. [Journal Article]QJM 2019QJM
- CONCLUSIONS: Daily dose of rhEPO combined with iron supplement administered 3 days before TKA procedures could significantly decrease perioperative blood loss and improve postoperative Hb levels, without significantly elevating risks of complication, when compared with admission of rhEPO on the day of surgery and iron supplement alone. Preoperative daily rhEPO treatment could be a more effective blood-saving protocol in TKA procedures.
