This study aimed to investigate the acute effects of exercise on bone turnover and to determine whether brisk walking with or without weight-lifting makes a difference on bone metabolism. Nine healthy women performed two exercise bouts: brisk walking on a treadmill for 30 min (E), and similar exercise carrying 5 kg of weight in a backpack (WE). Serum(More)
AIM The tethered cord syndrome refers to a variety of lesions that can cause the conus medullaris to be low-lying or incapable of movement within the spinal canal. Permanent or temporary neurological complications were reported following surgical release. In this report, peri- and postoperative results in cases with tethered cord syndrome that were followed(More)
Autonomic nervous system involvement with peripheral neuropathy is a well known complication of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In the assessment of autonomic function of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, we performed sympathetic skin response (SSR) and R-R interval variation (RRIV) tests in 30 patients and in 30 normal controls. Of 30 patients, 5 had(More)
Spinal cord lesions have various aetiologies, and trauma is one of the leading causes. Patients with spinal cord injuries (SCI) often have motor, sensory and autonomic dysfunctions and require a multidisciplinary rehabilitation programme. In this study 1694 SCI patients were investigated, including the frequency, and the distribution by age, sex,(More)
Temporal-distance variables of gait were investigated in 8 female and 23 male hemiplegic patients in order to assess the distribution of these variables according to functional ambulation category and to evaluate their validity. Video-recording technique was used for obtaining the temporal-distance values. Velocity, step-time, stride length and stride(More)
Forty healthy young volunteers were divided randomly into four equal groups. 2 ml of solutions of pethidine (meperidine) in concentrations of 0.5%, 1% and 1.5% were given to three groups of 10 subjects: a fourth group received saline. Sensory evoked responses obtained via surface electrodes from both sural nerves simultaneously in the pethidine groups and(More)
In this study the effects of agonist acting drugs (morphine sulphate, fentanyl citrate and meperidine hydrochloride) on nerve conduction were studied in 43 healthy young volunteers divided into four groups randomly. According to analgesic equivalent doses, the first group received 2 mg morphine sulphate, the second group 0.02 mg fentanyl citrate, the third(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE We aimed to study the effects of perineural tramadol on both sensory and motor conduction of ulnar nerve by electroneurography (ENG). DESIGN Prospective. SETTING Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Electrophysiology Laboratory. PATIENTS Eight healthy volunteers. INTERVENTION Either 3-mL of saline or 50 mg of tramadol in 3-mL saline(More)
INTRODUCTION In this prospective clinical study, we investigated the effects of rapid maxillary expansion (RME) on the electromyographic (EMG) activities of the anterior temporal and superficial masseter muscles. METHODS The sample included 18 subjects (11 girls, 7 boys; mean age, 12.54 years) with unilateral or bilateral posterior crossbites involving 3(More)
OBJECTIVE To measure the motor performance of the flexor pollicis brevis, first dorsal interosseus, and flexor pollicis longus muscles using the parameters electromyographic muscle reaction time and movement time in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome during key turning function. METHOD A total of 37 female patients with right hand pain were divided into(More)
