    Background/aims: Surgical correction of ocular alignment in patients with third cranial nerve paralysis is challenging, as the unopposed lateral rectus muscle often pulls the eye back to exotropia following surgery. The authors present a simple surgical approach to overcome this difficulty. This...

    Diastasis recti abdominis during pregnancy is a frequent phenomenon with a prevalence of 30-70%. It is associated with functional and cosmetic limitations. Gold standard in diagnosis during pregnancy is the transabdominal ultrasonography. The most frequent localization is in the periumbilical...

    The otolith system contributes to the vestibulo-ocular reflexes (VOR) when the head moves linearly in the horizontal plane or tilts relative to gravity. The saccules are thought to detect predominantly accelerations along the gravity vector. Otolith-induced vertical eye movements following...

    The external knee adduction moment is considered a surrogate measure for the medial tibiofemoral contact force and is commonly used to quantify the load reducing effect of orthopedic interventions. However, only limited and controversial data exist about the correlation between adduction moment...
