OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of shoulder muscle fatigue on glenohumeral proprioception. DESIGN A repeated proprioception test was performed. BACKGROUND The role of conditioning and fatigue in sport injuries remains controversial. It has been hypothesized that proprioceptive information plays an important role in joint stabilization and that(More)
Proprioception and muscle strength are both reported to influence single-limb stance balance in patients with chronic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. However, the effects of these parameters on dynamic stance balance in such patients are currently unknown. This study was undertaken to ascertain whether proprioception, muscle strength, and knee(More)
The antioxidant property and other health benefits of the most abundant catechin, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), are limited because of poor stability and permeability across intestine. Protecting the EGCG from the harsh gastrointestinal tract (GIT) environment can help to increase its bioavailability following oral administration. In this study, EGCG was(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the study is to retrospectively review the clinical outcome of our study population of middle-aged RA patients who had suffered extensor-tendon rupture. We reported the outcome of autogenous palmaris tendon grafting of multiple extensor tendons at wrist level in 14 middle-aged rheumatoid patients. METHODS Between Feb. 2000 to(More)
From September 1996 to September 1997, 27 adult patients were diagnosed with chronic triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) tears with distal radioulna joint (DRUJ) instability in our clinic. They all received the procedure of TFCC reconstruction with partial extensor carpi ulnaris (ECU) tendon combined with or without ulnar shortening. There were 26(More)
