The purpose of this study was to find if the performance of the vertical jump is improved by the result of increasing the force, velocity, and muscle adaptation(s). For the experiment, there were four groups (Gr): three groups did the training programs and the fourth group was the control group (CG). In order to establish improvements in force and velocity,(More)
The schedule induced self-injection procedure was used to establish ethanol self-injection in 16 rats. Pretreatment with an injection of 0.3 mg/kg buprenorphine significantly reduced ethanol self-injection in a group of 8 rats. This effect was not found in a second group of 8 rats which received saline pretreatment. The findings provide support for an(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the effects of plyometric training performed with rapid or slow stretch contraction on jump performance and muscle properties. Thirty males between the ages of 19 and 22 volunteered for the 8-week experiment. Subjects were divided into the following three groups: training group 1 (TG1), training group 2 (TG2), and(More)
PURPOSE Since improvement of facial aesthetics after orthognathic surgery moves increasingly into the focus of patients, prediction of soft tissue response to hard tissue movement becomes essential for planning. The aim of this study was to assess the facial soft tissue response in skeletal class II and III patients undergoing orthognathic surgery and to(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to compare the standard methods of cephalometry and two-dimensional photogrammetry, to evaluate the reliability and accuracy of both methods. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty-six patients (mean age 25.5, standard deviation (SD) 5.2 years) with Class II relationship and 23 patients with Class III relationship (mean age 26.4, SD 4.7 years)(More)
BACKGROUND There has been a growing emphasis on evidence-informed decision-making in health care. Systematic reviews, such as those produced by the Cochrane Collaboration, have been a key component of this movement. The UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Systematic Review Programme currently supports 20 Cochrane Review Groups (CRGs). The aim(More)
Skills trainings are increasing in popularity in undergraduate medical education enhancing clinical competencies and motivation for clinical practice. A suprapubic aspiration (SPA) is the gold standard to obtain urine from toddlers and young infants with fever and unclear focus to prove an urinary tract infection. In a blended-learning scenario with virtual(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Transient pain in humans is usually quantified using visual analog or numeric rating scales, but no assessment method has yet been validated in real time during such stimulation. METHODS To validate a transient pain monitor, healthy volunteers submitted to stimulations generated by a CO(2) laser at graded levels of stimulation(More)
