BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Few authors have considered the outcome after acute traumatic rotator cuff tears in previously asymptomatic patients. We investigated whether delay of surgery, age at repair, and the number of cuff tendons involved affect the structural and clinical outcome. PATIENTS AND METHODS 42 patients with pseudoparalysis after trauma and no(More)
The gait of 50 spastic children 3-16 years old was recorded and analyzed. All children showed abnormal values of both basal parameters and phases of the stride. In gait velocity and stride length, their values were lower than normal, but they increased with age, with stride length increasing in parallel with normal values. Stride frequency showed a decrease(More)
Gait patterns of 230 normal children, 3 to 16 years old, were studied with the aid of footswitches. They walked in three different requested velocities. Velocity, stride length, cadence, and the temporal phases of the stride were recorded along with leg length of the subjects. These gait parameters change with age, and the changes are most pronounced up to(More)

BACKGROUND The pathophysiology of chronic supraspinatus tendinitis is not fully understood. This may be due to the scarcity of experimental studies on this issue. METHODS In search for a system suitable for experimental analysis, the present study describes the relevant gross anatomy of the rat shoulder region (dissection), and examines the fiber(More)
