Front crawl arm stroke trajectories of physically impaired swimmers: A preliminary study

ConclusionThe stroke presented large inter-swimmer variability, reflecting individual characteristics and severity of the impairment. The swimmers who combined shallow and narrow stroke movements produced a shorter trajectory. This study provides swimmers and coaches with an overview of the kinematic characteristics of a range of physically impaired swimmers.RésuméIntroductionCette étude a eu pour objectif d’évaluer les paramètres tridimensionnels de la cinématique du mouvement crawlé chez des nageurs présentant des limitations fonctionnelles de différents niveaux.Synthèse des faits et résultatsHuit nageurs de haut niveau (5 hommes et 2 femmes) classés dans les catégories S5 à S9 du Comité International Paralympique ont réalisé des essais de nage crawlée maximale sur 50 m, filmés par six caméras vidéos (4 sous l’eau et 2 au-dessus). Le point le plus distal de l’avant-bras droit a été numérisé à 50 Hz pour permettre la reconstruction tridimensionnelle de la trajectoire du bras dans l’eau.ConclusionsLe mouvement de bras présentait une grande variabilité entre les nageurs, reflétant les caractéristiques individuelles et la gravité de la déficience. Les nageurs qui combinaient un mouvement de bras...

Authors: Antinozzi C, Sgrò P, Di Luigi L Abstract Among metabolic diseases, carbohydrate metabolism disorders are the most widespread. The most common glucose pathological conditions are acquired and may increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart diseases, stroke, and kidney insufficiency. Phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5i) have long been used as an effective therapeutic option for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). Different studies have demonstrated that PDE5i, by sensitizing insulin target tissues to insulin, play an important role in controlling the action of insulin and gluco...

Authors: Hirayama T, Morioka H, Fujiwara H, Iwamoto K, Kiyozuka T, Takeo H, Ikeda K, Kano O Abstract The frequency and risk of embolism by Lambl's excrescences (LEs) remain unclear. We herein report an autopsy case of LEs that caused cardioembolic stroke. A 74-year-old man with colon cancer was hospitalized for ischemic stroke. His D-dimer levels were elevated. Thus, a diagnosis of ischemic stroke with Trousseau syndrome was made. At the autopsy, we found LEs in the aortic valves and thromboembolism of the brain blood vessels. This finding demonstrated that fibrin clots had adhered to the LEs because of coagulation...

Authors: Araki K, Takeuchi R, Katada F, Fukutake T Abstract Rotatory vertigo is known to have not only peripheral causes, e.g., Meniere's disease, vestibular neuritis, and benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, but also central causes, e.g., stroke, hemorrhage, and tumor. In most cases, central rotatory vertigo is caused by a lesion in the brainstem or cerebellum, but rare cases with a cerebral lesion have also been reported. We herin describe a unique case with acute rotatory vertigo following a small hemorrhage in the left superior temporal gyrus, which probably led to a dysfunction of the visual-vestibular system...

Authors: Zhang H, Cao Y, Pei H, Wang H, Ma L, Wang Z, Diao X, Yang Y, Liu N, Wei Y, Li H Abstract Shenmayizhi formula (SMYZF) has been shown to have an effect on vascular dementia (VaD) in previous studies. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether a combination of SMYZF with Ginkgo extract tablets improves mild-to-moderate VaD. In this 12-week, randomized, double-blind, controlled study, we randomly assigned 196 patients with VaD (aged 50-85 years) to either the SMYZF group (n = 98) or the Ginkgo group (n = 98). All patients received Ginkgo extract tablets as a basic treatment, whil...

acute;jo PA Abstract OBJECTIVES: to unveil the experience of mothers of children who had a cerebrovascular accident due to sickle cell disease. METHODS: qualitative, phenomenological research based on Martin Heidegger's philosophical framework. Ten mothers participated in the Association of People with Sickle Cell Disease of Minas Gerais. For the interpretative analysis of the reports, we performed the vague and medium understanding followed by hermeneutics. RESULTS: the study revealed that, for the mother, the experience means remembering the diagnosis of the disease that had a significant impact. These...

Authors: Janjua T, Moscote-Salazar LR Abstract Neurological complications from novel coronavirus is becoming more common. These patients usually have primary pulmonary problem of acute lung injury. Presentation in the form of encephalitis, meningitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome and seizures are noted. It is also noted that SARS-CoV-2 has predilection for brain stem leading to patient not feeling extensive pulmonary injury. Here we share another neurological presentation.

CONCLUSION: poor physical function can be assessed to identify risk of diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Healthcare personnel should provide education programs that inform patients on the importance of maintaining a healthy physical ability. PMID: 32778624 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Grond-Ginsbach C, Meisenbacher K, Böckler D, Leys D Abstract Dissecting aneurysms of the internal carotid artery were considered as very rare disorders before the seventies. Undiagnosed carotid-artery dissections, however, may have gone hidden behind earlier reports of delayed "apoplexy" due to "traumatic carotid thrombosis". Here, we present a case report of delayed stroke after trauma, published by Aristide Verneuil in 1872 in the Bulletin de l'Académie de Médecine and cited under the heading of vascular rupture and dissecting aneurysm by Heinrich Quincke in 1876. V...
