Effects of Maximal Eccentric Exercise on Deep Fascia Stiffness of the Knee Flexors: A Pilot Study using Shear-Wave Elastography

The deep fascia is closely related to skeletal muscle, and it may be involved in delayed muscle soreness onset. The present study also investigated the effect of eccentric exercise on fascia stiffness and its relationship with DOMS. Shear wave elastography was used to determine the mechanical elasticity of the biceps femoris muscle and the overlying fascia before, as well as immediately thereafter, 1 hour and every day up to 72 hours. Though muscle elasticity remained unchanged, deep fascia stiffness increased from baseline to T24 and T72 post-exercise.

Molecular Mechanisms Underlying the Pain-Relieving Effects of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy: A Focus on Fascia Nociceptors

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy has gained a growing role in various bone and soft-tissue pathologies in recent years, yielding promising results for pain relief and functional recovery. Remarkably, sensory innervation and nociceptors of the fascial system are emerging to play a critical part as pain generators in MPS. Analgesia caused by the EWST's findings are expected to provide new insights into the deep fascia's dynamic interactions, including changes in innervation, sensibilization of fascial nociceptors, the pathophysiology of chronic musculoskeletal pains of MPS, and EWST-induced analgesia. Moreover, as gaining mechanistic insight into the pain-alleviating effects of ESWT may extend the field of shock waves clinical research far beyond the musculoskeletal system or its original application for lithotripsy.

The efficacy of fascia iliaca compartment block for pain control after total hip arthroplasty: a meta-analysis

Abstract Purpose The purpose of the Fascia iliaca compartment block blocks provides an analgesic alternative for total hip arthroplasty patients. This meta-analysis was designed to investigate FICB for pain control in THA patients. FICB could significantly reduce VAS pain scores at 1 u20138 h, 12 h, and 24 h compared to placebo. FICB could reduce the incidence of nausea and hospital stay by a large margin relative to the control group. Conclusions FICB can be used to effectively reduce pain intensity up to 24 hours, total morphine intake, and length of hospital stay in THA patients.

Comparison of the therapeutic outcomes between open plantar fascia release and percutaneous radiofrequency ablation in the treatment of intractable plantar fasciitis

Abstract Background Heel pain is one of the most common foot and ankle clinic disorders, and plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain, and heel pain is one of the most common complaints. In the enrolled 26 cases, 16 patients were provided open plantar fascia fascia, and the other 15 patients were treated with percutaneous radiofrequency ablation. In the percutaneous radiofrequency ablation case, the average operative time of the feet in the open plantar fascia release is longer than that of percutaneous radiofrequency ablation. In addition, the percutaneous radiofrequency ablation group had a shorter recovery time to normal activity than the open plantar fascia release group. There were no differences between the two groups in terms of postoperative VAS scores and the AOFAS-AH ratings. Conclusions Patients of both the partial plantar fascia release treated group and the percutaneous radiofrequency ablation treated group were markedly enhanced in pain and limb function.

Reliability of Various Measurement Stations for Determining Plantar Fascia Thickness and Echogenicity

This research sought to establish the relative and absolute reliability of ultrasound measurements of the plantar fascia's thickness and echogenicity at various measurement stations along its length using a standardized protocol. Image J, a digital image analysis and viewer software, was used to conduct a quantitative analysis of the plantar fascia's thickness and echogenicity. However, the measurement stations for both the PF thickness and echogenicity, which indicated the highest intraclass correlation coefficient, did not have the highest absolute reliability. Compared to other measurement devices, measuring the PF thickness at 3 cm distal and the echogenicity at a location of concern 1 cm to 2 cm distal from its insertion at the medial calcaneal tubercle showed the highest absolute reliability with the least systematic bias and random error.

Rotator cuff tear healing process with graft augmentation of fascia lata in a rabbit model

Using a rabbit rotator cuff defect model, the aim of the study was to determine the biological relevance of fascia lata augmentation during the early healing process of rotator cuff tears. In the safranin O staining, proteoglycan staining at the repaired enthesis in group A at 4 weeks postoperatively, type III and type I collagen was more prominent than that in group R. Picrosirius red staining at 4 weeks postoperatively, it was stronger than that in group R. Picrosirius red staining. type III and type I collagen in group A was more prominent than that in group R. Picrosirius red stain group A' The ultimate failure load of the infraspinatus tendon u2013humeral head complex in group A was significantly higher than in group R at 4 weeks postoperatively. Although the tissue matured, type III collagen was gradually replaced by type I collagen around the fascia lata grafts.

The effect of fascia iliaca block on postoperative pain and analgesic consumption for patients undergoing primary total hip arthroplasty: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

Abstract Background: This systematic review and meta-analysis sought to compare postoperative pain, analgesic intake, and complications following the fascia iliaca block versus control for patients undergoing primary total hip arthroplasty. We compared the effects of FIB versus placebo in two ways. After preoperative and postoperative FIB, we wanted to monitor pain and analgesic intake. Methods We searched through MEDLINE, Embase, Scopus, Web of Science, Google Scholar, ClinicalTrials. gov, and CENTRAL until February 2021 to find randomized controlled trials that assessed the safety of FIB versus control for patients undergoing primary THA. There were no differences between FIB and control groups in terms of postoperative pain, analgesic intake, or complication rate. In addition, preoperative and postoperative FIB studies that used preoperative and postoperative FIB found no significant difference in postoperative pain, analgesic intake, or complication rate.

Fascia Lata Alterations in Hip Osteoarthritis: An Observational Cross-Sectional Study

To determine any differences in the amount of Collagen type I, Collagen type III, and Hyaluronan, the current review compares the effectiveness and composition of fascia lata in healthy subjects and patients with hip osteoarthritis. During surgery, Fascia lata samples from voluntary healthy subjects and patients with OA were collected from voluntary healthy subjects and patients with OA were extracted during surgery. To determine fascial morphology and COL III, COL III, and Hyaluronan content in both groups, collagen type I, III antibody, and biotinylated hyaluronan binding protein immunohistochemistry stainings were used. The observed differences suggest a connection between fascial pathology and hip OA. The observed rise in COL I in OA patients, along with the lowering of COL III and HA, may have contributed to fascial stiffening, which could alter fascial mechanics and be attributed to OA-related diseases.

Breast Reconstruction after Mastectomy with the Use of an Implant and Serratus Anterior Fascia Flap—Initial Clinical Evaluation

Prosthesis-based procedures are the most common form of breast reconstruction worldwide. With outstanding results in terms of morbidity and cost-effectiveness, the use of a serratus fascia flap may be the correct option to create a subpoena for the placement of a tissue expander. The soft tissues over the implant were inspected by the U. S. in the aftermath of good coverage of the inferolateral area. During two-stage breast reconstruction, we found that using the serratus fascia flap to create a pocket with the pectoralis major for the placement of the tissue expander is an efficient tactic.
