Diagnosis and Management of Hip Dislocation in Patients with Kabuki Syndrome.

Conclusions: The management of hip dislocation by conservative or surgical method showed successful results. Awareness of Kabuki syndrome could lead to an early diagnosis of this rare disease in patients with hip dislocation and allow for early detection of other underlying conditions and multidisciplinary management.

J Strength Cond Res 34(2): 382–388, 2020—Studies investigating skeletal maturity and motor abilities in youth Asian elite soccer players are lacking. We aimed to investigate the cross-sectional relationship among skeletal age (SA), physical characteristics, and motor abilities in youth elite soccer players. Skeletal age is commonly used to estimate the maturity status of youth athletes using a hand-wrist radiograph. We enrolled 49 youth elite male soccer players (12.7 &pl...

This study aims to develop an asset mapping tool in collaboration with people with ID to gain insight into assets for healthy nutrition and physical activity in such settings. The tool is based on previous research and development continued in an iterative and inclusive process in order to create a clear, comprehensive, and usable tool. Expert interviews (n = 7), interviews with end-users (n = 7), and pilot testing (n = 16) were conducted to refine the tool. Pilot participants perceived the tool as helpful in pinpointing perceived assets and in prompting ideas on how to create inclusive environments with support for physic...

For several years before I got married, I worked as a salaried employee for a large agency. “W-2” employment provided me, a young speech-language pathologist, with certain benefits while allowing me to work in a wide range of clinical settings.

In this study, we took a non-stringent score (score = 0) as the threshold to investigate the improvement of the calling results. Genotype Quality Genotype Quality (GQ) (Zhang et al., 2013) is used to evaluate the filtering results of DNSNVs, which indicates the quality value of the most likely genotype. The quality value refers the possibility of the genotype being present at the site. The larger value means the greater the likelihood of the genotype. Results To facilitate the appropriate choice of the trio calling pipelines for detecting the DNSNVs, in our study, we firstly evaluated the results of three commonly used...
