Muscle fibers are dynamic structures capable of altering their phenotype under various pathological conditions. The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of long-lasting diabetes mellitus on the process of muscle regeneration in the skeletal muscle. Wistar rats were made diabetic by a single intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin(More)
INTRODUCTION The Reg genes play a major role in the regeneration of various tissues; however, no reports have been published regarding expression of the Reg3G gene in skeletal muscle. In this study we investigated the expression of the Reg3G gene in regeneration of rat skeletal muscle and injured nerves. METHODS We used 3 experimental models of muscle and(More)
3D shape reconstruction is a common task in many areas of interests. Yet, very often it involves sophisticated hardware and software. This paper represents cheap and simple system, both in hardware and software sense, for 3D subjects shape reconstruction. It consists of video camera(s) and video projector and is based on well known principle of structured(More)
OBJECTIVES (A) Describe a new method of investigation of the possible muscular effects of the commonly practiced Mills manipulation for lateral elbow pain (epicondylalgia), (B) ascertain if myoelectric activity is influenced during the pre-manipulative stretch for Mills manipulation, (C) establish whether muscle responses are influenced by ipsilateral(More)
Spinal and pelvis motion has been studied by a variety of different methods, the majority of which have a number of limitations. The present study investigated motion characteristics of the lumbar spine and pelvis using a three-dimensional optoelectronic system. The aim of our study was to determine kinematic parameters of spine and pelvis during trunk(More)
PURPOSE The purpose was to investigate the changes of the psoas major muscles (PM) cross-sectional area (CSA) and fat infiltration in the PM and to investigate the association between the morphology of the PM and expression of the degenerative changes of lumbar spine in patients with low back pain (LBP). METHODS T2-weighted scans for measurements of the(More)
In this study iliopsoas muscle strength was measured by portable dynamometer and it was explored to what extent independent predictors (age, body weight, body height and body mass index) affect iliopsoas strength in healthy subjects and in subjects with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. The study population was consisted of 183 girls (90 healthy girls and 93(More)
Compared to a 2D plate camera calibration and a traditional 3D calibration cage, it is generally regarded that a wand-based camera calibration of 3D photogrammetric systems is more user-friendly. Not surprisingly, nowadays commercially available 3D kinematic systems for a human motion analysis are offering almost exclusively a wand calibration. Still a 2D(More)
PURPOSE Increased oxidative stress and impaired antioxidant defense are important mechanisms in the pathogenesis of diabetic myopathy. Since diabetes mellitus type 1 decreases muscle regeneration capacity the present study was designed to determine the influence of alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), a potent biological antioxidant, on the process of regeneration of(More)
