BACKGROUND Most information on invasive Staphylococcus aureus infections comes from temperate countries. There are considerable knowledge gaps in epidemiology, treatment, drug resistance and outcome of invasive S. aureus infection in the tropics. METHODS A prospective, observational study of S. aureus bacteraemia was conducted in a 1000-bed regional(More)
BACKGROUND The effects of lumbosacral orthoses (LSOs) on neuromuscular control of the trunk are not known. There is a concern that wearing LSOs for a long period may adversely alter muscle control, making individuals more susceptible to injury if they discontinue wearing the LSOs. The purpose of this study was to document neuromuscular changes in healthy(More)
BACKGROUND Invasive Staphylococcus aureus infection is increasingly recognised as an important cause of serious sepsis across the developing world, with mortality rates higher than those in the developed world. The factors determining mortality in developing countries have not been identified. METHODS A prospective, observational study of invasive S.(More)
STUDY DESIGN Longitudinal, repeated-measures, factorial design. The trunk axial rotation repositioning error was the dependent variable, while the orthoses, test mode (passive versus active), and the testing session were the independent variables. OBJECTIVES To verify whether lumbosacral orthoses (LSOs) affect proprioception in the lumbar spine and(More)
