The Role Effectiveness of Physical Activities on Mental Disorders in Students with Low Mobility Using General Health Questionnaire (Ghq): (OSMOAJ) - Lupine Publishers

Today, the emergence and growth of mental disorders are more noticeable in the student population due to the changes in health conditions of the world. Therefore, the purpose of this study was examining the role effectiveness of physical activities on mental disorders in students with low mobility using General Health Questionnaire (GHQ). The study was a causal-comparative research and has been conducted through the field method. The instrument was included the General Health Questionnaire-28 (GHQ-28). The statistical sample was included 430 male and female physical education and non-physical education students. The collected data was analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistical methods and analytical tests. The results showed that there was a significant difference between athlete and non-athlete students in all variable components of this study in two groups (P<0.05). It seems that regular physical activity can play an important role in students’ physical and mental health and students who participated in fitness and exercise programs have reported that their attitude and efficiency had a good state. Therefore, the increase of motivation through culture and the promotion of public awareness about the benefits of physical activity can be considered as one of the options for the development of the student sport.

Incidence of Patella Alta in Anterior Knee Pain- Assessment with Patellar Height Ratio's: (OSMOAJ) - Lupine Publishers

Incidence of Patella Alta in Anterior Knee Pain- Assessment with Patellar Height Ratio's by Balgovind S Raja in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Open Access Journal (OSMOAJ) in Lupine Publishers

 Altered patellar alignment is associated with anterior knee pain and multitude of conditions that affect the patellofemoral joint. The study aim was to report the incidence of patella altaand patella baja in indian population with anterior knee pain and to investigate whether the normal limits of the patellar height ratios are applicable in indian population.
 Lateral radiographs of 528 knees with anterior knee pain were performed. Patellar heights were measured to calculate the Insall-Salvati (IS), Insall-Salvati Modified (MIS), Blackburne-Peel (BP), Caton Deschamps (CD) ratios.
 The overall mean LT/LP ratio was 1.03 (SD 0.37) with incidence of 16.2% (86/528) for patella alta with Insall-Salvati. Mean MIS was found to be 1.68 (SD 0.018) and incidence of patella alta as per MIS ratio was 14.3% (76/528). Blackburne-Peel and Caton-Deschamps ratios revealed mean ratios of 0.88 (SD 0.15) and .99 (SD 0.16) and the incidence of patella alta 17.8% with BP ratio and 10.2% with CD ratio respectively.
 Incidence of patella alta was found to be 17.8% with BP ratio, 16.2% with IS ratio, 14.3% with MIS ratio and 10.2% with CD ratio. The BP and IS ratio were the most sensitive with MIS ratio being the more specific one and CD ratio the least sensitive.

Radiocarpal Dislocation-a Complication after Distal Radius Osteosynthesis: (OSMOAJ) - Lupine Publishers

Radiocarpal Dislocation-a Complication after Distal Radius Osteosynthesis by VĂ­tor Hugo Pinheiro in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Open Access Journal (OSMOAJ) in Lupine Publishers

The volar shearing distal radius fractures associated with subluxation or dislocation of the carpus were first described by Barton in 1838. To our knowledge there is no literature regarding spontaneous radiocarpal dislocation during an osteosynthesis recovery of a Barton's fracture. This article describes the treatment and outcome of a case of a patient submitted to radius osteosynthesis with an anatomic volar distal radius plate. After the cast removal he started to feel pain, with no history of associated trauma. Imaging showed a Dumontier type II dorsal radiocarpal dislocation. It was reduced through a double approach of the radius, and a radiocarpal fixation with 3 Kirschner wires was performed. There were no perioperative complications. The imobilization and the kirschner wires were maintained for 7 weeks. After removing the cast and the kirschner wires, the patient presented flexion of 20°and extension of 15°, which improved up to flexion 30° and extension 60°, supination 60°, with preserved pronation, 24 months after the trauma. At this time, the patient reports no pain, feeling of instability or signs of nerve compression. The DASH disability score result was 3, 1 and the Mayo Wrist Score was 93. The radiograph control did not show any relevant alteration. In the presence of a comminuted distal radius fracture two-dimensional and even three-dimensional computed tomographic scans may well provide important additional information preoperatively and in selected cases a temporary external fixation may prevent displacement of volar fragment.

A Combined Approach to the Treatment of Adults with Osteogenesis Imperfecta: (OSMOAJ) - Lupine Publishers

Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is an inherited disorder of bone characterized by bone fragility and increased fracture risk affecting approximately 25,000 children and adults in [1]. OI is caused by different gene mutations involving the synthesis of type I collagen alpha chains. Recently, mutations affecting post translational processing of type I collagen as well as several non-collagenous proteins (SP7. Osterix) involved in the Wnt signalling pathway have been recognized. To date, 19 genes are implicated in osteogenesis imperfecta phenotypes [2]. In individuals with OI fractures occur throughout the lifetime, more frequently at the extremes of age.
