For reinnervation of facial paralysis, the XII-VII nerve anastomosis provides tone and mass contraction but rarely allows selective muscle control. The efficacy of EMG rehabilitation was evaluated in 30 patients who had no coordinated control of facial muscles. EMG signals from bilateral homologous facial muscle sites were converted into computer-compatible(More)
Electromyographic (EMG) feedback has been proposed to enhance rehabilitation following hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis. Sixteen of 25 patients who underwent hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis with and without postoperative EMG rehabilitation were videotaped for evaluation of facial movement by four observers unaware of these patients' rehabilitation(More)
Advances in the understanding of the relationship of proprioceptive (kinesthetic) feedback to motor physiology have prompted the study of therapeutic effects of audiovisual displays of EMG activity. Patients with various manifestations of disturbed neuromotor control were studied prospectively for three years. This group included 114 patients with(More)
Despite the presence of some voluntary movement, the loss of discrete control impairs functioning of the arm and hand in most hemiparetics. Seventy hemiparetic patients, aged 12 to 78 years, were treated and followed up for six months to three years. Electromyographic activity monitored from dysfunctional primary movers during attempted movement was(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY It is estimated that between 15% and 35% of sporadic colorectal cancers (CRC) developing from adenomas come from serrated polyps. Currently, the most effective method used to prevent CRC is the removal of adenomas, including serrated polyps, during colonoscopy. The aim of this paper is to analyze the changes characterized as serrated polyps(More)
Heart rate variability biofeedback (HRV-BFB) has been shown as useful tool to manage stress in various populations. The present study was designed to investigate whether the biofeedback-based stress management tool consisting of rhythmic breathing, actively self-generated positive emotions and a portable biofeedback device induce changes in athletes' HRV,(More)
Brain insults, regardless of etiology, may disrupt the CNS servosystems concerned with patterned voluntary movements and result in disorders of such movement. To aid functional recovery, we applied in these patients oscilloscopic display of digitally integrated EMG, monitored from malfunctioning primary movers, during attempted execution of movement(More)
