Peripubertal Exposure to Glyphosate-Based Herbicides Promotes Histopathological Impairment in the Structure of the Diaphragm Muscle of C57BL/6 Mice

SUMMARY Introduction. Glyphosate is an organophosphate herbicide most used in Latin America, with multisystemic effects, including the respiratory system. In this sense, the objective of this research was to analyze the muscle fibers and neuromuscular junctions (NMJs) of the diaphragm muscle of adult mice exposed to the glyphosate-based herbicide in the peripubertal period. Methods. Twelve … Continued

Three-Dimensional Silicon Mold Analysis of the Carpal Tunnel: A Morphometric Study in Human Cadavers

SUMMARY Purpose. Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common entrapment neuropathy with an incidence rate of 6%. The significance of carpal tunnel shape and dimensions in idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome has long been debated. Recent studies have exam­ined the accuracy of previous morphometric studies, as the reported dimensions have conflicting results. The purpose of this … Continued

Lower-Limb Connective Tissue Morphologic Characteristics in Runners. How Do They Relate with Running Biomechanics and Tendon Pathology? A Systematic Review

SUMMARY Although the role of connective tissue in running injuries and biomechanics has been widely investigated, systematic reviews on this issue were rarely reported. The aim of this study is to systematically review the current literature regarding the morphological characteristics (i.e., cross-sectional area and thickness) of the main connective tissue of the lower limb in runners and its … Continued

The anatomical characteristics of Vietnamese adult hip joint: a multiplanar reconstruction computer tomographic study

Background. The present study evaluated some anatomical characteristics of the acetabulum and proximal femur in the hips of adult asymptomatic Vietnamese individuals. Methods. We used 32 slice computed tomographic system with a multiplanar reconstruction (MPR CT) protocol to evaluate several parameters of the acetabulum and proximal femur, including Acetabular diameter (ADi), Acetabular depth (ADe), Acetabular … Continued
