  1. 1. EMG and strength in trunk and hip muscles

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet

    Author : Eva A Andersson; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Neurophysiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Neurofysiologi; abdominal muscles; biomechanics; electromyography; erector spinae; iliacus; iliopsoas; hip flexor muscles; locomotion; motor control; normalization; posture; psoas; quadratus lumborum; rehabilitation; running; sit-ups; strength; training exercises; u;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to study the myouelectric activity of all major muscles involved in the movements and stabilization of the trunk, pelvis and hips during training exercises, postures, motor tasks, maximal strength performance and locomotion. By use of ultra-sound, EMG electrodes could be guided safely and accurately into muscles situated even close to the spinal column, such as psoas, quadratus lumborum and deep parts of erector spinae.

  2. 2. Closure of midline abdominal incisions with small stitches : studies on wound complications and health economy

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Daniel Millbourn; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Wound closure techniques; Postoperative complications; Surgical wound infection; Surgical wound dehiscence; Hernia; Costs; Cost analysis;

    Abstract : Background A midline incision inflicts minimal damage to muscles, nerves and blood supply. Postoperative complications cause patients suffering and costs for society. Midline incisions should be closed with a continuous single-layer technique and a suture length (SL) to wound length (WL) ratio over 4. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the role of transversus abdominis in trunk motor control

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Martin Eriksson Crommert; Martin Eriksson Crommert; Örebro universitet.; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicin; Medicine; transversus abdominis; trunk muscles; EMG; intramuscular; IAP; motor control; postural control; spine stability; postural demand;

    Abstract : All trunk muscles are important contributors to spine stability. However, the deepest abdominal muscle, transversus abdominis (TrA), with its characteristically horizontal fibre orientation seems to serve a unique function in trunk motor control. READ MORE

  4. 4. Alternatives in the treatment of abdominal rectus muscle diastasis : an evaluation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology

    Author : Peter Emanuelsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Introduction Abdominal rectus diastasis (ARD) is defined as a widening of the distance between the two rectus muscles located on either side of the Linea Alba (LA). A width of more than 3 cm is, in this thesis, considered as pathological. There are several reasons why ARD occurs, where pregnancy is one of the most common. READ MORE

  5. 5. The evaluation, preoperative and operative aspects of abdominal wall reconstruction for giant ventral hernia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology

    Author : Leonard Clay; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: The optimal method for surgical repair of giant ventral hernia remains to be determined. Different concepts for reinforcement have been used, which have decreased the risk for recurrence. READ MORE
