The article presents a case study of a 63-year-old man who had undergone right colon resection for cecal cancer following chemotherapy and lung radiation therapy and ischial bone metastases. He was admitted to the palliative care unit due to the developed right lower limb pain with numbness...
- The unreamed intramedullary tibial nail in tibial shaft fractures of soccer players: a prospective study. Fankhauser, Florian; Seibert, Franz J.; Boldin, Christian; Schatz, Bernd; Lamm, Bradley // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;May2004, Vol. 12 Issue 3, p254
Lower leg fractures are common and complex injuries in soccer players. Twenty-five mainly recreational soccer players who sustained a tibial shaft fracture were treated with the AO-UTN (Unreamed Tibial Nail). This prospective series included 25 males with a mean age of 28.1 years. These patients...
- Correction of post-traumatic lower limb deformities using the Taylor spatial frame. Ganger, Rudolf; Radler, Christof; Speigner, Bernhard; Grill, Franz // International Orthopaedics;Jun2010, Vol. 34 Issue 5, p723
Twenty-five post-traumatic leg length discrepancies combined with axial deviation in 22 patients were treated with the Taylor spatial frame. We retrospectively analysed the accuracy of correction, the complication rate and the clinical outcome including the duration of treatment. The cases were...

- Computerized analysis and modelling of patients with deformities of lower limbs. PAUK, JOLANTA // Acta of Bioengineering & Biomechanics;2009, Vol. 11 Issue 1, p47
The purpose of this paper was to model the human gait of typical subjects and patients with such deformities of lower limbs as: spastic diplegia cerebral palsy and spina bifida occulta. Model coefficients will lead to the development of a better computer system to support clinical...

- Comparison of Injury Rates between Cadets with Limb Length Inequalities and Matched Control Subjects over 1 Year of Military Training and Athletic Participation. Goss, Donald Lee; Moore, Josef H.; Slivka, Erin M.; Hatler, Brian S. // Military Medicine;Jun2006, Vol. 171 Issue 6, p522
Objectives: To compare lower-limb overuse injury and low back pain incidence among cadets with and without limb length inequality (LLI) over 1 year of military training and athletic participation. Methods: A total of 1,100 cadets were screened for LLIs; 126 of 1,100 were identified to have a LLI...
- USE OF INERTIAL SENSORS IN LOWER-LIMB REHABILITATION DEVICE. DUMITRIU, Adrian; BARBU, Daniela Mariana // Annals of DAAAM & Proceedings;Jan2009, p1209
A novel lower-limb rehabilitation device equipped with suitable inertial sensors is presented, which enables training in the knee-link of a leg affected by strokes or injuries, in coordination with movements of the other, normal, leg. Both complex inertial sensor units as well as distributed...
