Our earlier study indicated that latency, besides duration and amplitude, of SSR of a given normal(More)
We present an adolescent with distal radius nonunion following an open fracture and failed surgery which eventually united when the length and stability was restored for eight weeks duration. The intact periosteal sleeve at the nonunion site formed new bone when its tension was restored by gradual differential distraction. This case report highlights the(More)

The effects of undernutrition and sex difference on skeletal muscle contractile characteristics were studied in young albino rats. The skeletal muscle (gastrocnemius) of 8 week old pups with only one-third normal food intake (undernourished group = UN group; n = 18), as compared to free fed pups (control group = cont. group; n = 16), showed prolongation of(More)
