Different knee joint affections are apt to initiate different specific atrophy forms in quadriceps muscle. By a biopsy-technique using the histochemical demonstration of ATPase and succinate dehydrogenase fast twitch fibre atrophy can be correlated with increasing age and a moderate impairment but still ambulatory condition. Fast twitch and slow twitch(More)
Motor blockade during epidural anesthesia was assessed using dynamometry to measure the maximum force of plantar flexion, and the Bromage score method. In a randomized double-blind study, 40 orthopedic patients received one of the following four local anesthetics epidurally: 0.5% bupivacaine-HCl (n = 10), 0.5% bupivacaine-CO2 (n = 10), 1.0% etidocaine (n =(More)
The article demonstrates, taking muscles of feathery structure as an example, that loss of contractile muscular mass by one-half would correspond to one-half of the power at the tendon if the muscle fibres are arranged in parallel. In the force-distance profile changes after the muscular mass has been reduced to one-half; the muscles with a more pronounced(More)
In view of the hazards of extensive laminectomy in children, an osteoplastic laminectomy was used in an eight-year-old child suffering from an intramedullary astrocytoma extending from C4 to C7. The laminae were first of all divided bilaterally about 2 mm medial to their origin, with a fine spherical cutter. After dividing the ligamenta flava and the(More)
