This study compared the measurements of the Motor Assessment Scale (MAS) to that of the Fugl-Meyer Assessment (FMA), a reliable and valid test for motor function in stroke patients. Thirty-two patients (20 men, 12 women) with a mean age of 60 years, and a mean time since stroke of 64.5 days, were tested with the FMA and MAS on two consecutive days. The(More)
Acute intoxication by diethylene glycol (LD 50) in male rats is associated with a considerable urinary excretion of oxalate, which is significantly decreased by alkalinisatin and/or intraperitoneal injection of ethanol with hydration. Mortality during the five days following intoxication is significantly decreased by major hydration only or together with(More)
We studied motor recovery as shown by locomotor activities after arthroscopic partial medial meniscectomies in seventeen men who were twenty-five to forty-nine years old. The patients were evaluated before the operation and two, four, and eight weeks after the operation. Control values were obtained from twenty-two healthy men whose ages, weights, and(More)
Maximal isokinetic strength and electromyographic activity of the operated leg were measured preoperatively and one, two, three, and eight weeks postoperatively after a partial medial meniscectomy by arthroscopy in a group of ten patients. Strength deficits, measured with a Kin-Com dynamometer using a static preloading protocol, were found in comparison(More)
In this paper, we propose a silent self-stabilizing leader election algorithm for bidirectional connected identified networks of arbitrary topology. This algorithm is written in the locally shared memory model. It assumes the distributed unfair daemon, the most general scheduling hypothesis of the model. Our algorithm requires no global knowledge on the(More)
Although acute poisoning with ethylene glycol (EG) used in antifreeze mixtures is well known in man, only a few reports have described acute intoxication with diethylene glycol (DEG) and only one has mentioned oxaluria. Furthermore, there is no experimental evidence that DEG is metabolized into oxalate. The ability of ethanol infusions to prevent hepatic(More)
Intertrial reliability of work measurements was studied in 19 men with a partial medial meniscal tear (ME group) and in 10 men with no history of knee injury (control group). Three maximal voluntary concentric contractions of the muscles involved in knee extension (KE) and knee flexion (KF) were performed on a dynamometer at 30 degrees and 180 degrees/s(More)
