We present an unusual case of spontaneous regression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). A 77-year-old man with alcoholic liver cirrhosis presented with a 50-mm tumor in the Couinaud's segment 8 (S8) of the liver, a 15-mm tumor in the S8-7 and 10-mm tumors in the other segments (S4, S6). The tumors were diagnosed as HCC by typical imaging findings and(More)

The aims of this study were to verify the relationship between rating of perceived exertion (RPE) and electromyography (EMG) increases during exhaustive constant-load cycling bouts and, to compare and to correlate the power outputs corresponding to perceived exertion threshold (PET) and neuromuscular fatigue threshold (NFT). 11 men completed 3-4 different(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the efficiency of pedaling (EP) and the electromyographic activity (EMG) between cyclists and non-cyclists during cycling in different cadences. Using a cyclosimulator, 12 cyclists (26.5 +/- 4.5 years; 68.2 +/- 10.5 kg; 175.6 +/- 8.2 cm) and 9 non-cyclists (25.1 +/- 4.3 years; 72.6 +/- 9.8 kg; 174.6 +/- 6.2 cm),(More)
The study evaluated the effect of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) applied over prefrontal cortex on the oxygen uptake (V˙ O2) at rest and during post-exercise recovery. The V˙ O2 was assessed in eleven healthy subjects before, during tDCS (sham or anodal tDCS, 2 mA, 20 min), and 30-min following isocaloric aerobic exercise (~200 kcal). During(More)
Among persons who do regular exercises, many include abdominal exercises in their customary routine. For this, there are a growing variety of movements being created for strengthening the abdominal muscles. This work aims to know, through electromyography analysis, the action potencies of the supra and infra umbilical of the Rectus Abdominis and Rectus(More)
Spontaneous regression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a rare phenomenon. We followed a detailed clinical course of a spontaneous and complete disappearance of HCC during a short interval. A 73-year-old man with hepatitis B virus infection presented with a 15-mm mass in the right anterior superior segment of the liver. The mass was diagnosed as HCC by(More)
The purpose of this study was to identify and compare the Electromyographic Fatigue Threshold (EMG(FT)) determined in the Vastus Lateralis (VL), Rectus Femoris (RF), Biceps Femoris (BF), Semitendinosus (ST) and Tibialis Anterior (TA) during stationary cycling in trained cyclists and non-cyclists. Using a cycle ergometer, 13 cyclists (28.4 +/- 6.9 years;(More)
The proposal of this study was to analyze the behavior of electromyographic activity of the Rectus Femoris, Vastus Lateralis and Vastus Medialis muscles during Maximum Isometric Voluntary Contraction (MIVC) performed before (MIVC-1) and after (MIVC-2) the series of repeated effort (four series of 12 repetitions) of the movement of extending the knee(More)
The Rectus Femoris muscle was analyzed by electromyography in 10 female subjects between 19 and 22 years old. Surface electrodes were utilized by placing them at the middle of the muscle. The course of the flexing/extending movements of the knee were analyzed on a Leg Extension Machine. The results showed that the MIC value was greater in the series with(More)
