In a double-blind, partial cross-over study of 141 patients with mild to moderate hypertension, chlorthalidone 50 mg was compared with chlorthalidone 50 mg/triamterene 50 mg combination treatment. The study assessed clinical efficacy in the reduction of blood pressure, and safety with regard to serum potassium concentration and adverse reactions. Both(More)
BACKGROUND Mesenchymal stem cells can be differentiated into muscle satellite cells. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) promotes the differentiation of satellite cells into muscle cells. CASE REPORT A 31-year-old male with a T4 complete chronic spinal cord injury (SCI) had fixation for a mid-shaft fracture of the left femur. The participant received(More)
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is accompanied by deterioration in body composition and severe muscle atrophy. These changes put individuals at risk for insulin resistance, type II diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. To determine the relationships between skeletal muscle mitochondrial mass, activity, and body composition, 22 men with motor complete SCI were(More)
Finding an accurate and affordable method to quantify muscle size following spinal cord injury (SCI) could provide benefits clinically and in research settings. The purpose of this study was to validate the use of anthropometric measurements vs. magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to evaluate muscle cross-sectional area (CSA) and develop a field equation to(More)
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) and testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) are effective rehabilitation strategies to attenuate muscle atrophy and evoke hypertrophy in persons with spinal cord injury (SCI). However both interventions might increase heterotopic ossification (HO) size in SCI patients. We present the results of two men with chronic(More)
In our recent effort, we introduced a submaximal index that utilized ventilatory efficiency relative to CO2 production (VE/ CO2) to evaluate the cardiovascular effectiveness to functional electrical stimulation lower-extremity cycling (FESLEC) in persons with spinal cord injury (SCI) (Gorgey and Lawrence, 2016). When compared to the resting state, we found(More)
