Skeletal muscle regrowth after atrophy is impaired in the aged and in this study we hypothesized that this can be explained by a blunted response of signaling pathways and cellular processes during reloading after hind limb suspension in muscles from old rats. Male Brown Norway Fisher 344 rats at 6 (young) and 32 (old) months of age were subjected to normal(More)
Shelter data in a recent study revealed discharges from psychiatric facilities to shelters or the street occurred at least 194 times in 2002 in London, Ontario, Canada. This problem must be addressed to reduce the disastrous effects of such discharge, including re-hospitalization and prolonged homelessness. An intervention was developed and tested to(More)
INTRODUCTION Semmes-Weinstein Monofilaments (SWM) are used to examine light touch sensation of the skin. Reliability of the 4-2-1 stepping algorithm approach for determining light touch detection thresholds has not been examined. The purpose of this study was to determine the interrater and intrarater reliability of the SWM 4-2-1 stepping algorithm on the(More)
Ankle dorsiflexion range of motion (DROM) is often a point of emphasis during the rehabilitation of lower extremity pathologies. With the growing popularity of weight-bearing DROM assessments, several versions of the weight-bearing lunge (WBLT) test have been developed and numerous reliability studies have been conducted. The purpose of this systematic(More)
OBJECTIVE The primary objective of this study was to measure serum cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (sCOMP) levels weekly in a group of collegiate soccer athletes over the duration of a spring soccer season and 2 weeks following the conclusion of the season while documenting minutes of exercise participation as a measure of exercise intensity. DESIGN A(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the responsiveness of six common patient-reported outcomes (PROs) following autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI). DESIGN A systematic search was conducted to identify reports of PROs following ACI. Study quality was evaluated using the modified Coleman Methodology Score (mCMS). For each outcome score, pre- to postoperative paired(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the intraday and interday reliability of serum cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (sCOMP) in a physically active population with no history of lower extremity surgery. DESIGN A repeated-measures reliability study was employed to determine the intraday and interday reliability of sCOMP in a physically active cohort. A total of 23(More)

Against common intuition, we find that variety in an assortment reduces its perceived quantity. Two studies show that people provide larger quantity estimates when shown random patterns of identical colored dots or geometric shapes than when those patterns contain variety. The difference in perceived quantity does not grow as the number of different types(More)
47 patients with a carpal tunnel syndrome were preoperatively examined not only by electrophysical studies (nerve velocity and distal motoric latency) and clinical tests (Phalen's sign, Tinel's sign) but also by measuring the strength of the M. abductor pollicis brevis with a specifically designed strength-testing unit. 30 patients agreed to participate in(More)
Our macroanatomical studies with cadaver specimens and clinical findings in the operative treatment of tendovaginitis stenosans de Quervain confirm the high number of anatomical variations in the first dorsal compartment of the wrist. With the help of thick transparent transversal-sections in one of 14 fetal wrists manufactured by plastination histology we(More)
