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)
The efficacy of an early, intensive, supervised rehabilitation program to accelerate knee strength recovery in the first 3 weeks postmeniscectomy by arthroscopy was evaluated using a randomized controlled trial design. The maximal voluntary isokinetic strength of 31 men, randomly allocated to either a treatment (EXP) or a control (CTL) group, was measured(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the effect of two sulphonylureas on the frequency of hypoglycaemic events and glycaemic control in elderly patients with Type 2 diabetes. Twenty-two untreated elderly patients were treated with glibenclamide or gliclazide in a randomized double-blind fashion. Prior to treatment, a biochemical profile, an oral(More)
The relationship between the type of meniscal lesion (bucket-handle, flap or degenerative tears) and preoperative knee function (5.1 +/- 6.2 days before arthroscopic meniscectomy) was studied in 35 patients. Patients with bucket-handle tears (group B, n = 12) had large knee extension work deficits during maximal voluntary contractions at 30 degrees and 180(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)
We reviewed 1.178 benign tumors treated between 1981/93 among which 39 appeared with a Phylodes Tumors diagnosis, disregarding 5 of them because they did not have a precise description and histologic classification, studying 34 proved cases which represented 2.89% of all benign tumors; if we add 89% cancers in these years, we have 2.074 and the relation(More)
After arthroscopic meniscectomy the relationship between the magnitude of knee extensor strength deficits and locomotor performance during stair ascent unloaded and when carrying a 22 kg load has been tested in 31 patients. The specific locomotor adaptations related to large strength deficits were also studied. The results indicate that large deficits were(More)
AIM To evaluate the clinical impact of confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) in the diagnosis and management of patients with an uncertain diagnosis. METHODS A retrospective chart review was performed. Patients who underwent CLE between November 2013 and October 2015 and exhibited a poor correlation between endoscopic and histological findings were(More)
