  • Biomechanical evaluation of FDS (flexor digitorum superficialis), 1/2FDS, and palmar fascia in the correction of claw fingers and the clinical exploration of 5 cases with 1/2FDS as tendon stiffness

    Purpose FDS (flexor digitorum superficialis), 1/2FDS, and palmar fascia are 3 surgical procedures commonly used to correct the deformities of claw fingers after ulnar nerve injury. FDS and palmar fascia traditionally are the more common procedures. The fomer requires the whole FDS, while the latter sometimes causes the recurrence of deformity because of its transfiguration. The of 1/2FDS spare the motor tendon and the recurernce rate is expected to be lower. A biomechanical study was performed to determine whether the biomechanical character of the three tissues is suit for surgery procedure ; Another follow-up study was performed to determine the clinical outcome with the 1/2FDS loop tenodesis operation in treatment of patients with ulnar claw fingers. Methods Ten fresh symmetrical arms in adults were tested, whose palmar fascias and FDSs of each finger were cut down respectively. And then 5 of the 10 FDSs were split into two tails equally. All samples were tested by an Instron Universal Test Instrument (model AG-10TA; made in Japan),which would control the stress and strain exerted on the test sample automatically, and print out the data of each load, elongation, stress and strain, then the curve of stress compared with elongation. 5 patients presented 5 affected 5 hands with ulnar claw fingers had the 1/2FDS loop tenodesis procedure from May 1990 to March 2010. Each hand was assessed before surgery and at follow-up evaluation by predetermined angle measurements, power grip, motion, mechanical function, and patients'satisfaction. Results Biomechanical study showed that FDS and that in half could endure large amount of stress exerted on it with less elongation in size. The difference between half FDS with palmar fascia group was statistically significant (P&lt;;0.05) in maximum stress and in maximum elongation in size. The maximum stress of half FDS was ten times larger than that of palmar fascia, while the maximum elongation in size of palmar fascia was two times bigger than that of half FDS. In the aspect of modulus of elasticity, there was no significant difference between the two groups of FDS integrated and that in half (P &gt;; 0.05)f, but it was significant weaker in half FDS than palmar fascia(P&lt;;0.05). After an average follow-up period of 34 months, Correctionsof deformity with the 1/2FDS loop tenodesis procedure was satisfactory in all patients without recurrence. Power grip remained static in most cases. Motion and function of the fingers were satisfactory. Conclusion The 1/2FDS provided us a better procedure for tenodesis than palmar fascia by biomechanical testing. It avoids the disadvantage to sacrifice large amount of FDSs that would result in new disorders of hand.

  • Effect of the Plantar Fasciotomy on the Movement of the Foot Arch

    Plantar fascia release has long been a mainstay in the surgical treatment of persistent heel pain, although its effects on the biomechanics of the foot are not well understood. The purpose of this study was to explore the role of the plantar fascia in the foot arch biomechanics, especially the fore foot motion after plantar fasciotomy via a three-dimensional finite element model of a normal left foot which comprising most joints of the foot. The validity of the three-dimensional finite element model was verified by cadaveric experiment. The vertical and horizontal displacement of the foot bones were calculated as well as the angulation under different situations. The height of the longitudinal arch decreased from 17.923 mm to 19.353 mm after the plantar fasciotomy in sagittal plane. The average contribution of the plantar fascia to the rotation of the foot bones were 34.53%, 22.46% and 12.63% in sagittal, transversal and coronal plane respectively. The plantar fascia is one of the major stabilizing structures of the longitudinal arch of human foot.

  • Parallel analysis of large graph-structured data in genomics and proteomics

    This talk presents two new software tools that our research group is developing: lark, a de novo genome assembler, and FASCIA, a tool to approximately count and enumerate network motifs. Our de novo genome assembly approach involves construction, traversal, and simplification of de Bruijn graphs on large multicore clusters. We present new parallelization strategies and optimizations for various steps of the assembly process, focusing on techniques for scalable de Bruijn graph construction from short-read data. We demonstrate the parallel efficiency and scalability of our assembler with performance results and analysis of several recent metagenomic data sets. The problem of subgraph counting refers to determining the frequency of occurrence of a given subgraph or template within a large network. Subgraph counting is used to detect and characterize local structure (network motifs) in several biological networks, including protein interaction networks and metabolic networks. Exhaustive enumeration and exact counting is extremely compute- intensive, with running time growing exponentially with the number of vertices in the template. In FASCIA, we combine parallelism with the color coding technique to determine approximate counts of non-induced occurrences of the subgraph in the original network. The color coding technique gives a fast approximate algorithm for this problem, using a dynamic programming-based counting approach. Our new contributions are a multilevel shared-memory parallelization of the counting scheme and several optimizations to reduce the memory footprint. We show that approximate counts can be obtained for templates with up to 12 vertices, on networks with up to millions of vertices and edges.

  • A new instrument for endoscopic release of the ulnar nerve in the cubital tunnel-a cadaveric investigation

    Ulnar nerve entrapment within the cubital tunnel is a common clinical condition. Traditionally, nerve releases have been performed utilizing a long incision on the medial side of the elbow leaving a long scar, usually with some damage to the cutaneous nerves around the elbow and associated morbidity, plus, on the average, a three-to-four day stay in the hospital, With endoscopic techniques, improved results should be possible with one small incision on the postero-medial side of the arm and a much more aesthetic result. This should be possible as an out-patient surgical procedure with decreased overall morbidity. Early mobilization after endoscopic surgery could also aid in an earlier return to work, resulting in a substantial reduction in health care costs. Safe endoscopic release of the ulnar nerve in the cubital tunnel at the elbow with a single 1.5 centimeter incision is possible thus eliminating many problems associated with the commonly used open release procedure. The newly developed technique with associated instrumentation for this surgical procedure was proven to be feasible under the in vitro conditions of this investigation.

  • Segmentation of colorectal pathology images using level sets

    Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in men and women. Generally surgery is by total excision of the mesorectum (TME), though it often has a poor outcome due to affected lymph nodes close to the resection boundary. Advancements in diagnosis and treatment of colorectal cancer require integration of information from different sources such as pathology macroscopic and microscopic images and magnetic resonance images. Evaluation of the mesorectal fascia and the rectal wall are important for both staging the cancer and predicting the outcome of the TME. An algorithm is developed for segmentation of the rectal wall on macroscopic pathology slice images. The information is vital for registration of the images for reconstruction of the resected volume but more importantly for fusion of images in order to evaluate different measures and establish correspondences across modalities. The resected specimen is segmented from the background using thresholding. Following, a number of features such as intensity different order statistics and phase information are evaluated for the region of interest. The features are incorporated in a level set framework for the segmentation of the rectal wall.

  • A model to measure the characterizing parameters of the deep fascia

    The aim of this work is to create a computerized tridimensional model of the deep fascia, as useful and flexible tool suitable for any histological section's analysis. It allows determinations, also quantitative, of the elements that formed the evaluated tissue, their spatial dispositions and relationships. Every manipulation and elaboration do not necessarily ask an irreversible alteration of the original tissue, as happen with the biological specimens. The present study considers a crural fascia specimen, taken from the posterior region of the knee.

  • Diseño e implementación de un prototipo de ortesis para prevención y tratamiento del Síndrome del Túnel del Carpo (STC)

    We present the design and implementation of a prototype orthosis to treat and prevent carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), disease suffered especially by women, when they use their hands in repetitive actions. The device is designed based on the pathology of the disease and the anatomy of the body segments of the right hand, getting a four-piece mechanism in stainless steel AISI 304, to which he exercises sequences implemented to prevent and treat the disease. For movement of the prototype were installed four servomotors coupled to each of the movable segments of the device which are controlled by a microcontroller PIC16F628A, programming four sequences of motion, operated by the respective pushbuttons. The device is aimed to complement the treatments supervised by physiotherapists.
