PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine whether lower extremity fatigue affects the ability of an individual to balance on an unstable platform. METHODS Twenty healthy subjects (average age, 29 yr, range, 20 to 39 yr) were tested on an instrumented balance assessment system. Static tests were done on the limbs unilaterally and then bilaterally,(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcome of patients treated with limited immobilization and early motion after repair of acute Achilles tendon ruptures. Thirteen consecutive patients with complete ruptures of the Achilles tendon were identified, repaired, and rehabilitated with early motion starting an average of 10 days after(More)
Viscoelastic creep is a well-known phenomenon associated with collagenous soft tissues under sustained tensile load. Despite our understanding of this phenomenon and the potential for "loosening" of the graft over time, pretensioning of bone-patellar tendon-bon (B-PT-B) grafts for reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) to eliminate this(More)
This study evaluated the shoe-surface interaction of 15 football shoes made by 3 manufacturers in both anterior translation and rotation using a specially designed pneumatic testing system. The shoes included traditional cleated football shoes, "court" shoes (basketball-style shoes), molded-cleat shoes, and turf shoes. Under an 11.35-kg (25-pound) axial(More)
Damage to the cerebral microvasculature is a feature of cerebral malaria. Circulating endothelial progenitor cells are needed for microvascular repair. Based on this knowledge, we hypothesized that the failure to mobilize sufficient circulating endothelial progenitor cells to the cerebral microvasculature is a pathophysiologic feature of cerebral malaria.(More)
PURPOSE We determined the fluctuation of nocturia in a 12-month period in men with lower urinary tract symptoms. MATERIALS AND METHODS Men with lower urinary tract symptoms were allocated to the placebo arm of the United States Department of Veterans Affairs Cooperative Studies Program Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Study. Reported nocturia frequency using(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate 5-alpha-reductase (5alphaR) expression in benign and malignant urothelium and to assess the relationship between 5alphaR expression and tumor stage, tumor grade, and clinical outcome in patients with urothelial carcinoma/transitional cell carcinoma. METHODS We performed immunohistochemistry for 5alphaR on 53 urothelial specimens(More)
Haven Hospital with an illness which resembled primary atypical pneumonia of the type which has been increasingly prevalent since The history revealed not only that two other members of the household had recently had a similar illness and that one was sick at home, but also that eight of twelve cats on the farm had died of a respiratory disease during(More)
Evidence has been accumulating from many sources that infection with the virus of lymphocytic choriomeningitis may produce a variable clinical picture in man. The finding by Armstrong and others28 of neutralizing antibodies in 18 per cent of 680 random sera from all over the United States indicated that the disease was widespread, although a review of the(More)
Rehabilitation of the anterior cruciate ligament absent or reconstructed knee is becoming a true artform. Accelerated, but controlled rehabilitation, is becoming more commonplace. Scientific-based data along with clinical experiences are the basis of the rehabilitation guidelines brought forth in this article. Anterior cruciate ligament strain and(More)
