BACKGROUND Although anterior shoulder dislocation is common in everyday practice in Emergency Departments, bilateral presentation is a rare entity. OBJECTIVES The aim of this article is to report two additional cases of this rare injury and to introduce a new mechanism that can produce it. We made an exhaustive review of the literature and found 68 cases(More)
Ligamentomuscular and muscular stretch reflexes are known to contribute to knee joint stability. After anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, a more intense and adjusted muscular response is required to maintain joint stability, but this neuromuscular control of the knee has not been clearly proved. The aim of the study is to record electromyography (EMG)(More)
UNLABELLED A 23-month-old girl was referred to us because of a right leg limp for 10 days that had not improved despite anti-inflammatory treatment and that did not show signs of infection. Upon examination, gait was in abduction and external rotation of the hip. Plain radiographs showed a solitary lucent lesion of the posteroinferior two thirds of the(More)
BACKGROUND Operative and nonoperative treatment of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries is often associated with a lack of proprioception and persistent muscle weakness of unknown origin. METHODS This long-term study in the cat experimentally compares both neural and muscular activity in the articular nerves of the knee (PAN and MAN), quadriceps and(More)
This article describes the implementation of custom DSP based on Artificial Neuronal Networks intended for the classification of joint ligament patterns. The system forms part a research project of the study of the knee movement. The system analyzes signals from deformation sensors, previously placed in the surfaces of the knee ligaments. This system of(More)
In the absence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), secondary restraints such as menisci, ligaments, and tendons restrict anterior knee laxity. Strain detection at these sites could define the contribution of this alternative signalling system to knee proprioception after ACL injury. The hypothesis in this study questions if measurements of anterior tibial(More)
Gold chloride technique can be combined with Adobe Photoshop® software to yield a quantitative assessment of the different areas in heterogeneous structures as are ligament. A semi-automatized method based on the sum of two- and three-dimensional morphological criteria upon colorimetric criteria allows the identification and measurement of the area occupied(More)
Besides current strategies to treat potentially disabling anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, a new and innovative approach was designed based on electrical stimulation of the muscle to prevent unwanted displacement of the tibia relative to the femur. Our aim was to measure muscular strain and anterior tibial translation (ATT) in a controlled study(More)
