A series of subjective and objective measures were chosen to determine impairment of upper extremity function in 157 workers performing repetitive tasks. Workers were asked to respond to questions regarding their perception of the presence or absence of numbness, pain, weakness, or swelling in their upper extremities. Objective tests consisted of the(More)
In conclusion, animal experiments have shown the following: (1) extensive elevation (mobilization) of a nerve from its bed does not interfere with its capacity to regenerate as long as the longitudinal epineural vessels are preserved, (2) suturing nerve ends under tension has a deleterious effect on the final results, (3) when a segment of nerve has been(More)
Three-dimensional surface changes that accompany facial surgical procedures were measured noninvasively and evaluated quantitatively. An optical three-dimensional surface scanner with 360-degree surface coverage of a subject's head and a subsecond data acquisition was used. The scanner employs six pairs of "white light" pattern projectors and digital TV(More)
Abdominal obesity is associated with metabolic risk factors for coronary heart disease (CHD). Although we previously found that using liposuction surgery to remove abdominal subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) did not result in metabolic benefits, it is possible that postoperative inflammation masked the beneficial effects. Therefore, this study provides a(More)
BACKGROUND Phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate (PC-DC) injections are a popular nonsurgical method to eliminate unwanted fat. The safety and efficacy of this approach is uncertain. OBJECTIVE The authors evaluate the effects of PC-DC treatments on body composition, adipocyte function, and mechanisms responsible for fat loss. METHODS This randomized,(More)
Grip and pinch strength testing are commonly used to evaluate hand strength for disability ratings and to assess responses to various forms of therapy. This study determined the variations in grip and pinch strength in normal individuals. Ninety-five healthy subjects--61 women and 34 men--were examined prospectively by use of a Jamar dynamometer and a(More)
The amount of silicone (polydimethylsiloxane [PDMS]) in capsular tissue surgically removed from women with breast implants was measured by using (29)Si and (1)H magic-angle spinning solid-state NMR spectroscopy. Twelve women having smooth surface silicone gel-filled implants, including a subject with "low-bleed" double-lumen implants, had detectable levels(More)

Ulnar nerve entrapment can be divided into compression at the elbow and the wrist. Etiologies range from direct trauma to metabolic derangements. Guidelines for diagnosis at each site have been presented. Surgical release at the elbow begin at the mid arm where the nerve passes from the anterior to the posterior compartment through the intermuscular septum(More)
