Sonoelastographic Assessment of the Gender Related Changes in the Achilles Tendon

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.501
Synopsis: 
The effect of gender on the Achilles tendon's elastic property is not a significant co-variable in the young, healthy sample. Muscle strength may play a more important role in the Achilles tendon's injury rather than in tendon's elasticity.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The objective of this study is to assess the gender related differences in the elasticity and thickness of the Achilles among healthy young participants.

Methods: Forty-eight volunteers, which were healthy adults between the ages of 20 and 25 years, included the study. Metabolic equivalents (MET) scores, tendon thickness and shear wave velocities (SWVs) were compared between males and females.

Does Nasal Septal Deviation Have an Influence on Distribution Patterns of the Frontal Ethmoidal Cells?

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.076
Synopsis: 
The effect of nasal septal deviation on the presence of the frontal ethmoidal cells have not been studied before. Our study suggests that the presence and distribution of frontal ethmoidal cells are not influenced by nasal septal deviation.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the role of nasal septal deviation on the presence or distribution patterns of the frontal ethmoidal cells (types I to IV), the pneumatization patterns of the frontal sinus, and to search the association between the frontal ethmoidal cells and the pneumatization degree of the frontal sinus and the presence of concha bullosa.
