Significance of Stabilometry for Assessing Postoperative Body Sway in Patients with Cervical Myelopathy.

Significance of Stabilometry for Assessing Postoperative Body Sway in Patients with Cervical Myelopathy. Asian Spine J. 2017 Oct;11(5):763-769 Authors: Tanishima S, Nagashima H, Ishii H, Fukata S, Dokai T, Murakami T, Morio Y Abstract Study Design: Prospective study. Purpose: To examine the changes in body sway using stabilometry in patients who underwent cervical laminoplasty for cervical myelopathy. Overview of Literature: Although the patients of cervical myelopathy complain body sway there are few report to examine body sway objectively. Methods: Patients who received treatment for cervical myelopathy between October 2010 and February 2013 were included. Twenty-one patients underwent cervical laminoplasty (myelopathy group). Body sway was assessed using stabilometry, wherein patients stood on a stabilometer with their eyes closed for 30 seconds. The Romberg ratio, outer peripheral area (OPA) with eyes closed (cm2), and total locus length per unit area (L/A) with eyes closed (/cm) were examined. Examinations were performed preoperatively (at baseline) and at 8 weeks postoperatively. Examination results of patients in the myelopathy group were compared with those of 17 healthy individuals (control group). Clinical symptoms were evaluated using the Japanese Orthopaedic Association scale score (JOA score) and the timed up and go (TUG) test. Results: In the myelopathy and control groups, the mean baseline Romberg ratio, OPA, and L/A were 2....

Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 27;: Authors: Mao Y, Nie Q, Yang Y, Mao G Abstract Retinoblastoma is a common intraocular malignant tumor in children. However, the molecular and genetic mechanisms of retinoblastoma remain unclear. The gene expression dataset GSE110811 was retrieved from Gene Expression Omnibus. After preprocessing, coexpression modules were constructed by weighted gene coexpression network analysis (WGCNA), and modules associated with clinical traits ...

Authors: Cui Y, Li Y, Ning J, Mi Y, Wang X, Qiu Z, Li L, Gou X Abstract Mechanical allodynia, which develops in patients of diabetes mellitus as a neuropathic manifestation, remains without an effective treatment. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects and potential mechanisms underlying resveratrol (RES) in a rat model of streptozocin (STZ)‑induced diabetic mechanical allodynia (DMA). The rat model of DMA was established by the administration of an intraperitoneal injection of STZ. From day 8 post‑STZ injection, rats were administered with an intragastric injection of various doses of RES ...
