Movement Analysis in Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery - Measurement Systems and Clinical Applications.

CONCLUSION: The instrumented movement analysis is an additional tool that aids clinical practitioners of O/U in the dynamic assessment of pathologic movement and loading patterns. In conjunction with common radiologic imaging it aids in the planning of type and extent of corrective surgical interventions. In the field of orthopaedics and trauma surgery movement analysis can help as an additional diagnostic tool to develop therapeutic strategies and evaluate clinical outcomes.

CONCLUSIONS: This is the largest cohort reported in the literature of patients with frostbite injuries treated with HBOT. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may show positive impact on the demarcation level of frostbite and, despite the common side effects, it generally causes no long-term sequelae.

ConclusionComputed tomography examinations are a more reliable method for differential diagnosis of thyroid nodules than ultrasound examinations followed by fine needle aspiration biopsy.Level of EvidenceIII.ResumoIntroduçãoA ultrassonografia é um método rápido para determinar de qual nódulo deve-se coletar uma amostra para biópsia por aspiração com agulha fina. Por outro lado, o exame de tomografia computadorizada não é restringido pela atenuação do eco e distingue entre nódulos benignos e malignos.ObjetivoComparar exames tom...

XingAbstractManganese oxide nanofoam has been prepared by pulsed laser deposition, from a metallic Mn target in a 5 Torr pressure O2 buffer atmosphere. The as-prepared samples were heat-treated at different temperatures (300 °C - 500 °C) in air. Both as-deposited and heat-treated samples have a high porosity foam-like morphology, as shown by Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy. High Resolution Transmission Electron Mi...

In this study, a corrosion-resistant polymer coating with self-cleaning properties on Mg alloy AZ31 was successfully fabricated via a pretreatment of amino-silane (poly(3-aminopropyl)trimethoxysilane, PAPTMS) and subsequently covered with a polypropylene (PP) film. Surface morphology and chemical compositions were examined using field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometry (FT-IR) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) as well. Contact angle was measured to determine hydrophobicity of the composite coatings. Water permeability of the coa...

The aim of this study was to investigate functional polymorphisms in NAT2 associated with the development of hepatotoxicity after initiating treatment for TB in people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in Pernambuco, Nor...
