A systematic review on biomechanical characteristics of walking in children and adolescents with overweight/obesity: Possible implications for the development of musculoskeletal disorders.

Obes Rev 2019 Apr 3. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

PROFITH "PROmoting FITness and Health through physical activity" research group, Department of Physical Education and Sports, Faculty of Sport Sciences, University of Granada, Granada, Spain.

It is known that obesity is associated with biomechanical alterations during locomotor tasks, which is considered a potential risk factor for the development of musculoskeletal disorders (MSKD). However, the association of obesity with biomechanical alterations of walking in the early stages of life have not yet been systematically reviewed. Thus, this review aims to summarize the biomechanical characteristics of walking in children and adolescents with overweight/obesity (OW/OB) versus their normal-weight (NW) counterparts. Read More

Gut rest strategy and trophic feeding in the acute phase of critical illness with acute gastrointestinal injury.

Nutr Res Rev 2019 Mar 28:1-7. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

Intensive Care Unit,First Hospital of Jilin University, 71 Xinmin Street, Changchun,People's Republic of China.

Critically ill patients frequently suffer from gastrointestinal dysfunction as the intestine is a vulnerable organ. In critically ill patients who require nutritional support, the current guidelines recommend the use of enteral nutrition within 24-48 h and advancing towards optimal nutritional goals over the next 48-72 h; however, this may be contraindicated in patients with acute gastrointestinal injury because overuse of the gut in the acute phase of critical illness may have an adverse effect on the prognosis. We propose that trophic feeding after 72 h, as a partial gut rest strategy, should be provided to critically ill patients during the acute phase of illness as an organ-protective strategy, especially for those with acute gastrointestinal injury.

[Carpal tunnel syndrome secondary to a rare anatomical variation of the median nerve].

Pan Afr Med J 2018 20;31:39. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Traumatologie-Orthopédie Aile 4, CHU Ibn Rochd, Casablanca, Maroc.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the the most common reasons for consultation in hand surgery with an annual incidence of 300 per 100 000 inhabitants and, in France, of 80 000 surgical interventions. In most cases, carpal tunnel syndrome is idiopathic occurring without a recognizable cause. However, beyond these forms, the merging of several mechanisms can explain the cause-and-effect relationship of this pathology . Read More

Reviewing the Variability-Overuse Injury Hypothesis: Does Movement Variability Relate to Landing Injuries?

Res Q Exerc Sport 2019 Mar 25:1-16. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

b University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Purpose: Overuse injuries are common in sport, but complete understanding of injury risk factors remains incomplete. Although biomechanical studies frequently examine musculoskeletal injury mechanisms, human movement variability studies aim to better understand neuromotor functioning, with proposed connections between overuse injury mechanisms and changes in motor variability.

Method: In a narrative review, we discuss the variability-overuse injury hypothesis, which suggests repeated load application leads to mechanical tissue breakdown and subsequent injury when exceeding the rate of physiological adaptation. Read More

Vigilance/Avoidance to Expected and Presented Stimuli in Trauma Survivors: An Eye-Tracking Study.

J Trauma Dissociation 2019 Mar-Apr;20(2):228-241. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

a Department of Psychology , Middlebury College , Middlebury , VT , USA.

Attention in trauma-related disorders has been characterized by both vigilance and avoidance of trauma-related or aversive stimuli. This study used eye-tracking technology to investigate how cumulative trauma, as well as hypervigilance and dissociative symptoms, affected attentional patterns to anticipated negative stimuli and actual negative stimuli. A sample of forty-two trauma participants recruited from the community had a choice about where to look on a computer screen knowing which segments of the screen negative stimuli were likely to appear.

The recovery after Achilles tendon rupture: a protocol for a multicenter prospective cohort study.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2019 Feb 11;20(1):69. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Trauma Surgery, University of Groningen, University Medical Center Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands.

Background: Achilles tendon rupture (ATR) is a common sports injury, with a rising incidence and significant impairments. Due to the lack of treatment guidelines, there is no consensus about diagnostic methods, primary treatment (non-surgical or surgical) and rehabilitation. It is hypothesized that this lack of consensus and guidelines leads to sub-optimal recovery and higher societal costs. Read More

Entrapment Neuropathies of the Upper Extremity.

Med Clin North Am 2019 Mar;103(2):357-370

Department of Neurology, Massachusetts General Hospital, 55 Fruit Street, WACC 739B, Boston, MA 02114, USA. Electronic address:

Upper extremity entrapment neuropathies are common and can cause pain, sensory loss, and muscle weakness that lead to functional disability. In this article, the authors review common entrapment neuropathies of the upper extremities, including median neuropathy at the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome), ulnar neuropathy at the elbow, and radial neuropathy. The authors discuss the pathophysiology of nerve compression and typical etiologies, as well as strategies for differentiating between common mimics such as cervical radiculopathy and for selecting between various treatment modalities.

Segment Coordination Variability Differs by Years of Running Experience.

Med Sci Sports Exerc 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Michigan Performance Research Laboratory, School of Kinesiology.

Running is a popular activity that results in high rates of overuse injury, with less-experienced runners becoming injured at higher rates than their more-experienced peers. While measures of joint kinematics and kinetics and ground reaction forces have been associated with overuse running injuries, similar differences across levels of running experience have not been found. As running is a motor skill that may develop with experience, an analysis of segment coordination and its variability could provide additional insight into why injury incidence decreases with increasing experience.
