Motor learning results from practice but also between practice sessions. After skill acquisition early consolidation results in less interference with other motor tasks and even improved performance of the newly learned skill. A specific significance of the primary motor cortex (M1) for early consolidation has been suggested. Since synchronized oscillatory(More)
BACKGROUND The metacarpophalangeal joints exhibit range of motion that is influenced by wrist position. Synergistic motion occurs between the wrist and the metacarpophalangeal joints with different static wrist positions affecting joints' motion capability. The aim of this study was to determine how different wrist positions influence the active range of(More)
Introduction: Until now we treated 1,200 patients with hemorrhoids of grade II, III and IV using the Doppler-guided hemorrhoidal artery ligation. In a follow-up of 550 patients we investigated the surgical outcome, the functional recovery, and postoperative pain.

In the current literature, no report exists about postoperative brachial artery entrapment in combination with an inconspicuous preoperative neurovascular(More)
Fracture dislocations of the STT joint are extremely rare. We present the case of a 50-year-old worker, who sustained a crush injury of his left hand with a dorsal fracture dislocation of the trapezoid bone and the associated second metacarpal bone at the STT, and a concomitant compartment syndrome of the hand. The fracture was reduced immediately and(More)
INTRODUCTION Aim of this retrospective cohort study was to identify fracture epidemiology and off times after different types of fractures in German male elite soccer players from the first division Bundesliga based on information from the public media. METHODS Exposure and fracture data over 7.5 consecutive seasons (2009/10 -1.Half 2016/17) were(More)
