OBJECTIVES There is a paucity of long term studies on exercise training in elderly women. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of one year of progressive resistance exercise (PRE) on dynamic muscular strength and the relations to bone mineral density (BMD) in elderly women. METHODS Forty four healthy sedentary women (mean age 68.8(More)
Three dimensional reconstruction images of bony and soft tissue surfaces have improved understanding of complex facial deformities. Applied to CT studies of complex craniofacial abnormalities, this method has delineated abnormal facial soft tissue and bony morphology, facilitated surgical planning, and improved quantitative postoperative evaluation.(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a generalized water-based exercise program (WBE) compared to a land-based exercise program (LBE) on improving cardiorespiratory fitness, body composition, forward trunk flexion and strength measurements of elderly women aged 70 +/- 3.2 years (mean +/- SD). Forty-one healthy, sedentary women(More)
OBJECTIVES To use population-based data to accurately delineate the types and incidence of complications, risk of readmission, and influence of age and surgical approach on short-term mortality after radical prostatectomy. METHODS Medicare claims from 1991 to 1994 were used to identify and quantify the types and risks of complications, rehospitalization(More)
The understanding of complex craniofacial deformities has been aided by high resolution computed tomography. Nonetheless, the planar format limits spatial comprehension. Reconstruction of fully three-dimensional bony and soft tissue surfaces from high resolution CT scans has been accomplished by a level slicing edge detector coupled to a hidden surface(More)
Recent developments in computer-aided medical imaging coupled with the related emergence of computer-aided design and manufacturing technology have had a significant effect on our management of patients with congenital and acquired head and neck deformities. In our institution, plain film skull radiography, cephalometry, and pluridirectional tomography have(More)
A patient with sleep apnea syndrome, concurrently taking clonidine as an antihypertensive, presented with severe respiratory acidosis, hypotension, and associated central nervous system depression. Acidosis was improved by mechanical ventilation, and central nervous system (CNS) depression and hypotension were reversed with yohimbine. Clonidine may have an(More)
By the year 2025, more than 25% of Canadians will be older than 65; and nearly half the population older than 65 has some degree of disability. With physiologic aging comes a gradual loss of functional capacity and independence that becomes a major health burden. Researchers have shown that lifelong, moderate levels of exercise are associated with increased(More)
