Bilateral Hidden Isokinetic Quadriceps Performance before and after MPFL Reconstruction in Pediatric Patients

J Knee Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-3402031We perform prospective study to evaluate the isokinetic performance of quadriceps before and 1 year after medial patella-femoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction with the adductor magnus tendon in the case of recurrent patellar dislocation. The present study is the first to describe the isokinetic function of the quadriceps of the involved and uninvolved extremity, in such a wide range. The MPFL is a crucial passive stabilizer of patella and, along with the conditions of the anatomical shape of the femoral-patellar joint and the function of quadriceps, influences the overall patellar stability. However, only a few studies have examined indirectly or directly the function of quadriceps. A total of 27 patients (average age at surgery was 15.8 years) with recurrent monolateral patellar dislocation were treated with MPFL reconstruction using the adductor magnus tendon. In the study group, healthy and operated quadriceps were evaluated for the following parameters at the velocities of 60 and 180 deg/s before surgery and in the follow-up examination: peak torque, peak torque to body weight, time to peak torque, peak torque angle, torque in 30 degree of the knee flexion (TQ 30 degree), and the torque in the first 180 milliseconds (TQ 180). Preoperative patellar instability and its normalization after MPFL reconstruction have no impact on the isokinetic quadriceps index value which depends on the time and degree of inactivit...

Abstract The Alberta Infant Motor Scale (AIMS) is a well-known, norm-referenced scale that evaluates the gross motor development of children from birth to 18 months. The aim of the study was to compare the Canadian norms with the AIMS scores of a Turkish sample of infants, and to investigate whether the current reference values of the AIMS are representative for Turkish full-term infants. The study was conducted with 411 Turkish infants of both sexes (195 girls and 216 boys), born with gestational age 38 weeks and older, weighing ≥2500 g at birth. Motor performance of all the cases at different ages were assess...

Conclusions: Lower back pain is a serious health problem, and this review article will help educate physicians and physiotherapists dealing with LBP in the options of evidence-based treatment. Ultimately, the article introduces and postulates the need to systematize therapeutic procedures in LBP therapy, with a long-term perspective. PMID: 32256908 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

What we call a disease matters. It matters to the person because a diagnosis is a marker: this problem is known, it’s recognised, it’s real (Mengshoel, Sim, Ahlsen &Madden, 2017). It matters to the clinician, particularly medical practitioners, but also those clinicians working within a largely “disease-oriented” framework (for example, physiotherapists, osteopaths) (Haskins, Osmotherly, Rivett, 2015; Kennedy, 2017). It matters also to insurance companies, or funding providers – who is in, and who is out. The diagnostic label itself hides a great many assumptions. The ways in which diag...

Conclusion: Differences in the knowledge, use, and implementation of two NCGs among rehabilitation unit managers, staff in charge of professional development, and physiotherapists in municipality-based rehabilitation were identified. It seems that NCGs do not necessarily translate directly into local guidelines. PMID: 32250194 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
