Neuromuscular Control During the Bench Press Movement in an Elite Disabled and Able-Bodied Athlete

Introduction The disabled population varies significantly in regard to physical fitness, what is conditioned by the damage to the locomotor system. There are disabled individuals that move and function independently, as well as those that are affected by total disability and are entirely dependent on others. A major type of damage to the locomotor system includes spinal cord injuries (SCI), cerebral palsy and amputations. The development of medical sciences and technological advances have led to the extension of life expectancy and better quality of life in

Dealing with Bone Metastases from Breast Cancer - A Pathological and Clinical Overview

Abstract

From breast malignant tumors, bone is the most frequent site of metastasis. Bone metastases from breast cancer are correlated with pathological fractures, spinal cord compression and other skeletal-related events as well as bone pain and hypercalcemia. These lead to impaired mobility, decreased quality of life, and overall decrease in survival. Clarification of mechanisms regulating bone metastasis has advanced greatly in the last years and this has translated into plentiful unused therapeutic options. Greater understanding of the pathophysiology of bone metastases has led to the detection and clinical efficiency of bone-targeted agents. This review summarizes the key evidence for current clinical practice and future directions.

Defect Reconstruction After Hip Tumor Resection - Our Clinical Experience

Abstract

Aim. Short and mid-term analysis of postoperative results after hip vicinity tumor resection and reconstruction with salvage of the lower limb. Material and method. Retrospective study on a number of 13 cases: 6 pelvis tumors, 3 femur tumors and 4 femur and pelvis tumors. 3 out of the total pelvis tumors were treated using custom pelvis reconstruction prosthesis, the other ones using bone graft and standard implants. The femoral tumors were treated using modular prosthesis and bone graft and osteosynthesis implants. Results. Short-term outcome was favorable. Conclusion. Bone defect reconstruction after hip vicinity tumor resection is a technically difficult procedure, which requires significant material resources. In terms of quality of life, the results are clearly superior compared to tumor resection with the sacrifice of the affected member.

Reconstructive Surgery in Nose Tumors

Abstract

Introduction. Cutaneous malignancies localized on the nasal pyramid are one of the most frequent non-melanocytic skin cancers with a great psychosocial impact. A predominant pathology of the elderly is distinguished by slow development, with a tendency to ulceration and addressability to medical services in advanced local stages. Reconstruction after oncologic intervention is diverse, locoregional flaps, grafting, and simple direct sutures can be made, the case per se dictating the appropriate attitude. The variables to be considered are location, size of the remaining defect and quality of potential donor areas. The following are also taken into account: reduction of morbidity, increasing quality of life, patient’s psychological impact. Materials and methods. 7 cases of basocellular carcinoma of the nose addressed between 2017- 2018 are described throughout an observational analysis based in the Emergency Hospital for Plastic Reconstructive Surgery and Burncare in Bucharest, referred to by various reconstructive methods, depending on the particularities encountered. Locoregional flaps-bilobed, nasogenian, frontal, dorsal nasal - as well as full-thickness skin grafts and simple direct sutures were performed. Results. Carcinoma excision was complete and safety margins were confirmed histopathologically. Evolution of postoperative patients was favorable without complications. Conclusion. There are numerous surgical options for repairing nose defects. Oncological radicality and satisfactory aesthetic and functional outcome are the main objectives in choosing the method. The aims of reconstructive surgery are functionality of the nose, aesthetic appearance with finer scars, preserving the aesthetic subunits of the nose, but also the relationship with the neighboring structures.
