Rehabilitation Approach After Surgical Repair of Spontaneous Bilateral Quadriceps Tendon Rupture in a Healthy Mason
Quadriceps tendon rupture is a rare lesion, occurring most frequently in males older than 60 yrs after a fall or trauma and associated with systemic diseases and risk factors. Bilateral injury is even more uncommon and disabling. The authors report a case of spontaneous bilateral quadriceps tendon rupture, nonsimultaneous (8 days apart), in a healthy 54-yr-old black male mason, that may be work related. The patient was included in a 6-mo rehabilitation program after surgical repair. Pain control and gait reacquisition were particularly difficult. Following the customized and phased rehabilitation program, the patient achie...

Microdialysis to Quantify Inflammatory Cytokines in the Glenohumeral Joint: A Brief Methods Report
Microdialysis quantifies in vivo soft-tissue biochemical concentrations via passive diffusion of interstitial molecules through a porous membrane into a dialysate. The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate a technique to measure inflammatory cytokines associated with rotator cuff tendinopathy by inserting a microdialysis catheter into the posterior glenohumeral joint. The technique was tested in a convenience sample of six pain-free, able-bodied veterans. Complete dialysate samples were collected in two participants. Two participants' sample volumes were smaller than what was required for analysis (30 μl) and thus...

Walking Speed Is Correlated With the Isokinetic Muscular Strength of the Knee in Patients With Charcot-Marie-Tooth Type 1A
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A is the most common hereditary neuropathy. Affected individuals have a distal motor deficit, initially affecting the lower limbs and impairing walking performance. Isokinetic dynamometry can be used to objectively assess muscle strength of patients with neuromuscular disorders. No studies have evaluated the effect of muscle strength deficits of knee extensors and flexors on walking parameters for patients with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A. The purpose of this study was to determine correlations between the isokinetic muscular strength of knee flexors and knee extensors and walk par...

Conservative Management and Rehabilitation in the Older Runner With Knee Osteoarthritis: An Evidence-Based Review
This study reviews the current literature to provide an overview of conservative (nonpharmacological and pharmacological) management strategies including patient education, therapeutic modalities and exercises, mechanical measures, dietary factors, oral and injectable pharmacotherapies, and orthobiologics. Rehabilitation considerations and return-to-sport guidelines are discussed, emphasizing the notion that a return to running activity requires reduction in mileage and formulation of a structured exercise program that includes strengthening, flexibility, and stability exercises, as well as modifications in the running tec...

Objective The purpose of this study was to quantify the activation of partitions within supraspinatus and infraspinatus and some periscapular muscles during four resistance exercises with elastic bands. Design Twenty-seven right-handed healthy volunteers (age, 22.5 ± 2.7 yrs) were recruited. Intramuscular electromyography from supraspinatus (anterior and posterior) and infraspinatus (superior and middle) and surface electromyography data from the upper, middle, and lower trapezius and serratus anterior were recorded during four elastic resistance exercises (Y, T, W, L). Kinematics were recorded synchronously. E...

Measuring the Impact of Research Using Conventional and Alternative Metrics
Bibliometrics use statistical methods to measure the scholarly impact of publications. Bibliometrics are categorized as conventional metrics or alternative metrics. Conventional metrics have often been considered the standard to measure the impact of publication-related scholarship. With the growing popularity of social media and ease of instantaneous distribution of information globally, alternative metrics have become an important complementary measure of scholarly activity. Bibliometrics may provide a standard performance measurement that may be used for tenure and/or promotion among academic institutions. The alternati...

Race and ethnicity play a significant role in poststroke outcomes. This brief report describes the presence of depression among stroke survivors who received inpatient rehabilitation and whether depression differs by race. Data from eRehabData and electronic medical records were analyzed for patients who received rehabilitation after an acute ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke. Of 1501 stroke patients, 61.3% were white, 33.9% were African American, and 4.8% were of other race/ethnic backgrounds. By retrospective clinical review, depression was documented for 29.7% of stroke patients. Premorbid versus new onset of poststroke de...

Using a Workshop Format for Physiatry Trainees in the Management of Acute Sports-Related Concussion
Select residency and medical student training programs have developed and researched skill-based workshops, focusing on mastering a surgical or communication skill; however, they are less frequently studied in physiatry residency programs. Given the importance of concussion care in physiatric practice, this study sought to measure the effectiveness of a novel sports-related concussion workshop. Based on the 5th International Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport, a 6-hr concussion workshop was developed. Participants were administered a preworkshop and postworkshop questionnaire to gauge level of comfort managing vari...

Physiatry as a Leader for Postacute Care in Integrated Healthcare Systems
Because health care is being moved to a higher level of accountability, there has been a focus on improving outcomes through improving postacute care. The issues of cost and readmissions to acute care settings are very important, but the focus on patient function has not been foremost. Because of the fact that most postacute care needs are based on functional limitations and that physiatrists are well versed in transitions of care, rehabilitation of patients back to community settings, team building, and leadership, it is appropriate for rehabilitation medicine to take a leadership role in the planning and development of p...

Distinct Patterns of Fiber Type Adaptation in Rat Hindlimb Muscles 4 Weeks After Hemorrhagic Stroke
Conclusions Because slower myosin heavy chain fiber types are associated with weaker contractile force and slower contractile speed, this faster to slower fiber type shift in tibialis anterior muscles may contribute to weaker and slower muscle contraction in this muscle after stroke. This finding may indicate potential therapeutic benefit from treatments known to influence fiber type plasticity. (Source: American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation)

Mechanical In-exsufflation-Expiratory Flows as Indication for Tracheostomy Tube Decannulation: Case Studies
Mechanical insufflation exsufflation-expiratory flows (MIE-EFs) correlate with upper airway patency. Patients dependent on continuous noninvasive ventilatory support with severe spinal muscular atrophy type 1, now over 20 yrs old, have used MIE sufficiently effectively along with continuous noninvasive ventilatory support to avoid tracheotomy indefinitely. Although MIE-EFs can apparently decrease in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to necessitate tracheotomy, they can increase over time and remain effective in all spinal muscular atrophy types. Two cases demonstrate an association between increasing MIE-EF and, ultimately, su...
