  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. Outcomes of arthroscopic hip surgery in patients with Femoro-acetabular Impingement

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Mikael Sansone; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hip joint; hip arthroscopy; register; PROM; femoro-acetabular impingement; athlete; cam; outcome;

    Abstract : Hip and groin problems are common, especially among athletes. The treatment of hip and groin problems has undergone rapid change during the latest 15 years, mainly due to our understanding of femoro-acetabular impingement (FAI). READ MORE

  3. 3. Hormones, muscles and oncological outcome in men with rectal cancer

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : John Tapper; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Paper I. The aim was to elucidate if testosterone (T) dose-dependently increase muscle size in abdomen and pelvis, analogous to the known anabolic influence on appendicular muscles. Participants were young (age 18-50) healthy men participating in the 5a-reductase trail, a double blinded RCT. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structure and function of the cytoskeleton in cardiac and skeletal muscle

    University dissertation from Lunds universitet

    Author : Johanna Balogh; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ATP-receptor; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet; cardiomyopathy; transgenic mice; skeletal muscle; heart; muscle contraction; cytoskeleton; desmin;

    Abstract : We have examined the functional and structural roles of the cytoskeletal protein desmin in cardiac and skeletal muscles using a genetically modified mouse (Des-/-) with the desmin gene ablated. Desmin forms filaments at the Z-disks in the striated muscle sarcomere, have connections to the sarcolemma and most likely align sarcomeres and whole cells. READ MORE

  5. 5. Asymmetric lateral loading of the human trunk

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Qiang-Min Huang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Eccentric; concentric; isokinetic; electromyography; co-activation; trunk; spinal biomechanics; contraction patterns; lateral bending; lifting and lowering; balance; kinematics; postural control; IAP; support translation.;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to characterize the biomechanics and neuromuscular control of the human trunk in response to asymmetric lateral loading. The pulling force and strength capacities as well as muscle activation patterns, trunk kinematics and postural balance in relation to lateral trunk flexion and loading were given special consideration.
