Realizing Efficient EMG-Based Prosthetic Control Strategy.

As an integral part of the body, the limb poses dexterous and fine motor grasping and sensing capabilities that enable humans to effectively communicate with their environment during activities of daily living (ADL). Hence, limb loss severely limits individuals' ability especially when they need to perform tasks requiring their limb functions during ADL, thus leading to decreased quality of life. To effectively restore limb functions in amputees, the advanced prostheses that are controlled by electromyography (EMG) signal have been widely investigated and used. Since EMG signals reflect neural activity, they would contain information on the muscle activation related to limb motions. Pattern recognition-based myoelectric control is an important branch of the EMG-based prosthetic control. And the EMG-based prosthetic control theoretically supports multiple degrees of freedom movements  that allows amputees to intuitively manipulate the device. This chapter focuses on EMG-based prosthetic control strategy that involves utilizing intelligent computational technique to decode upper limb movement intentions from which control commands are derived. Additionally, different techniques/methods for improving the overall performance of EMG-based prostheses control strategy were introduced and discussed in this chapter.

Carotid endarterectomy and carotid artery stenting: changing paradigm during 10 years in a high-volume centre.

We analysed the results of internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis treatment at our institution over the last 10 years according to treatment modalities (carotid endarterectomy [CEA] vs carotid artery stenting [CAS]). Furthermore, we compared our results of treatment prior to the EVA-3S study being implemented into our practice (2003-2007) and after that (2008-2012).

[Atherogenic dyslipidemia and the metabolic syndrome: pathophysiological mechanisms].

Atherogenic dyslipidemia (ADL), a frequent metabolic derangement found in patients with manifest atherosclerosis, is characterized by hypertriglyceridemia, low plasma HDL cholesterol and prevalence of small dense LDL particles. The key pathogenetic mechanisms of ADL are closely linked to insulin resistance, the lack of appropriate responses to insulin in peripheral cells, especially in adipose tissue, skeletal muscles and liver. Impaired insulin signalling leads to a decreased suppression of lipolysis, defective fat storage in adipocytes, and increased flux of free fatty acids to the liver, which together with posttranslational stabilization of apolipoprotein B enhances the assembly and secretion of VLDL particles. Decreased activity of lipoprotein lipase contributes to slow clearance of triglyceride-rich particles, with negative consequences in LDL metabolism. Impaired HDL synthesis, intravascular remodelling, and catabolism decreases reverse cholesterol transport from peripheral tissues, hepatocytes and macrophages. Small dense LDL particles are considered to be highly atherogenic, due to increased penetration of arterial intima, and decreased antioxidant capacity. Better understanding of pathophysiological mechanisms involved in ADL could promote new therapeutic methods, as well as increase the compliance with essential lifestyle interventions.

Observing the onset of disability in older adults.

One of the greatest threats to the ability of older adults to live independently is the onset of disability in activities adults perform in their daily lives, such as dressing, eating, toileting, managing one's money, preparing meals and so on. This article examines the onset of disability in older adult Americans using three waves of the Asset and Health Dynamics Among the Oldest Old (AHEAD) survey (1993, 1995, 1998; n=4228). We use medical/demographic factors (arthritis, heart disease, diabetes; age, gender, race/ethnicity, wealth), baseline characteristics (affect, cognition, health behaviors, medical insurance), and time-varying covariates (changes in chronic conditions and baseline characteristics) to predict the onset of activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) disability, individually and in the aggregate, over time. We find the onset of ADL and IADL disability is a complex process, suggesting important roles for medical, demographic, social, psychological, and behavioral triggers, specifically negative affect, higher body weight, and by the lack of vigorous exercise. We also find that individual ADL and IADL impairments are predicted by a variety of different factors, suggesting that summary measures of disability may be masking a wealth of potentially useful interventions. In general, public health efforts in the area of controlling obesity and treating depressive symptoms should be supported.
