In brief: Thirty-three prepubescent, pubescent, and postpubescent males participated in a nine-week resistive exercise program to test the hypothesis that pubescent males respond better to strength training than older and younger groups do. Before and after the program, the subjects' strength in elbow and knee flexion and extension was tested bilaterally on(More)
We investigated the effects of peritendon injections of hydrocortisone acetate on the separation force required to completely avulse a posttraumatized Achilles tendon of the adult male rat. One hundred thirty-five rats were randomly assigned to 3 groups and subsequently traumatized, treated, and sacrificed. One group was used to examine the effect of(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine normal, mean quadriceps angles (Q angles) for college-aged men and women, and to compare Q angles measured in the supine and the standing positions. The Q angles of 269 men and 257 women were measured in both positions by use of a specially modified goniometer. The mean Q angle for men was 12.7 degrees in the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The quadriceps femoris muscle angle (Q angle) is used to reflect the quadriceps femoris muscle's force on the patella in the frontal plane. We found no studies, however, that validate this assumption. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the Q angle can be used to represent the force on the patella in the frontal plane.(More)
The purpose of this phase of the Utah study was to determine the prevalence of scoliosis in college-aged women over a three-year period. The subjects were 3,210 female college students (mean age = 19.7 +/- 2.1 years) from 34 states and 5 foreign countries. The majority (98.2%) of the students were Caucasian. Nearly 12% of the study sample (n = 380)(More)
Lipoid proteinosis caused specific changes in the brain, larynx, and cervical esophagus of a young adult man. Laryngography clearly depicts the distribution and degree of pharyngeal and laryngeal pathology. Florid calcification, conforming to the classical temporal lobe distribution, is documented by plain films and tomography. The clinical picture and the(More)
This study investigated the effect of ultrasound applied to traumatized muscle tissue of an adult male rat. Sixty-six rats were traumatized, treated, and sacrificed. The rats were assigned to one of 11 groups, to which experimental and control (two mock) ultrasound treatments were given at 3- and 7-minute time periods at 0.5 and 1.5 watts per square(More)
