Pseudomonas aeruginosa lung infection is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in cystic fibrosis (CF). Longitudinal assessment of the phenotypic changes in P. aeruginosa isolated from young children with CF is lacking. This study investigated genotypic and phenotypic changes in P. aeruginosa from oropharynx (OP) and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid(More)
Tien et al. (J. Appl. Physiol.: Respirat. Environ. Exercise Physiol. 46: 565-570, 1979) found reproducible details in the configuration of averaged maximal expiratory flow-volume curves and suggested that these details may correspond to sudden relocations of airway choke points. The occurrence of choke points depends on factors affecting local airway(More)
The elbow joint is highly susceptible to joint contracture, and treating elbow contracture is a challenging clinical problem. Previously, we established an animal model to study elbow contracture that exhibited features similar to the human condition including persistent decreased range of motion (ROM) in flexion-extension and increased capsule(More)
BACKGROUND The microstructural organization (collagen fiber alignment) of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), which likely corresponds with its functional properties, has only been described qualitatively in the literature, to our knowledge. The goal of this study was to quantify the tensile mechanical and microstructural properties of the PCL and(More)
