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)
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)
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)
BACKGROUND Numerous studies investigating the effect of exercise on reaction time have yielded contradictory results. Most of the studies use computer based methods to measure reaction time instead of electromyography, yielding total reaction time rather than premotor time. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effect of a single session aerobic(More)
BACKGROUND To find out how many trials of electromyographic reaction time measurements are needed for reliable interpretation. METHODS The electromyographic reaction time values were obtained by surface electromyography from the flexor digitorum superficialis muscle of the 20 healthy volunteers. After five practice trials, the measurements were repeated(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate whether tramadol had a dose-dependent blocking effect on nerve conduction when administered perineurally to the sural nerve of healthy volunteers. METHODS Twenty-four informed healthy subjects were randomized into four equal groups [Saline (placebo), 0.5% tramadol, 1% tramadol and 1.5% tramadol]. The(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)
