Crouch gait, one of the most common movement abnormalities among children with cerebral palsy, is characterized by persistent flexion of the knee during the stance phase. Short hamstrings are thought to be the cause of crouch gait; thus, crouch gait is often treated by surgical lengthening of the hamstrings. In this study, a graphics-based model of the(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to examine the influence of muscle fiber type composition on the patterns of responses for electromyographic (EMG) and mechanomyographic (MMG) amplitude and mean power frequency (MPF) during a fatiguing submaximal isometric muscle action. Five resistance-trained (mean +/- SD age = 23.2 +/- 3.7 yrs) and five(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine if supplementation with a liquid multi-vitamin/mineral would improve anaerobic exercise performance. Fourteen resistance-trained men performed a 30-second cycle sprint and one set of squat exercise on 2 separate days before and following 8 weeks of supplementation with either a liquid multi-vitamin/ mineral or a(More)
Gait analysis was performed on 16 children with high-sacral-level myelomeningocele who walked with and without crutches to evaluate the influence of crutches on their unique walking pattern. All of the patients used solid ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs). Deviations in coronal and transverse planes improved with assisted walking. The timing of stance phase pelvic(More)
The aim of this study was to determine whether it is more efficient for adolescents with low lumbar myelomeningocele (MM) to walk with a reciprocal or a swing-through gait pattern. Energy measurements for subjects with MM were compared for reciprocal and swing-through gait and also with an able-bodied control group. The rate of oxygen consumption (in(More)
The purpose of the current prospective, randomized study was to compare the value of a new mechanically aligned patient-matched instrument system for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) (Visionaire; Smith & Nephew, Inc, Memphis, Tenn) (VIS) to that of standard TKA surgical instrumentation (STD). Twenty-nine primary TKA patients were enrolled and completed surgery(More)
Polysomnographic data recorded from a large sample of normal, healthy, adult volunteer subjects are reported. First and second night summary values are included. Results agree remarkably well with previously published findings and the age-related differences in sleep architecture that we found are described in detail. We also discuss some of the unique(More)
Gait analysis was used to evaluate 15 patients who had previously undergone clubfoot surgery. Because six patients had had bilateral surgery, 21 feet had undergone previous clubfoot surgery. Three of the operated feet had no residual deformity. In the remaining 18 feet, the reason for referral was intoeing in 13, calcaneovalgus in three, hindfoot varus in(More)
Charcot arthropathy (CA) is an insidious, destructive, and disabling pathology of the foot and ankle. Efficient and effective treatment is therefore required to improve clinical outcomes and to reduce overall mortality risk. The purpose of this case series report is to propose a treatment algorithm for correcting deformity and restoring a plantigrade,(More)
Sleep-related penile erections provide a unique opportunity to objectively study erectile physiology in man. Testosterone is one of several factors involved in normal sexual function and testosterone reduction can be achieved by administering luteinizing-hormone releasing-hormone agonists (LHRH-A). In this study, ten healthy, young adult males were(More)
