Design and biomechanical evaluation of a rodent spinal fixation device.
Flexion/extension ROMs (average±s.d.) were 18.1±3.3°, 19.9±7.5° and 1.5±0.7°, respectively for the intact, injured/fixed, and injured/8-week groups, with the differences being highly significant for the injured/8-week group (P=0.0002). Flexion/extension NZs were 3.4±2.8°, 5.0±2.4°, and 0.7...
Opportunities for research to improve employment for people with spinal cord injuries.
Literature and findings on key factors related to employment illustrate the multiple dimensions of work environments, and health demands, that effect employment outcomes for people with SCI.Conclusion:Employment is important for people with SCI and valued in society. The literature reviewed indicates...
Substance use in young adults with pediatric-onset spinal cord injury.
Sample included 215 individuals with a mean age at interview of 23.3 (s.d.=0.9) years and mean age at injury of 13.2 (s.d.=4.9) years. In all, 24% had a college degree, 36% were employed and 12% were married. Regular substance use was reported by 28% for tobacco, 55% for alcohol and 11% for marijuana...
Occurrence and predictors of employment after traumatic spinal cord injury: the GISEM Study.
A total of 403 patients, 336 men and 67 women, with a mean age of 41.8±16.3 years, were included in the follow-up. In all, 42.1% of patients were employed at the moment of the interview, though 62% reported a worsening in their employment level. Predictors of employment were education (P<0.0001), bo...
Extent of spontaneous motor recovery after traumatic cervical sensorimotor complete spinal cord injury.
There were no overall differences between the EMSCI and Sygen datasets in motor recovery patterns. After 1 year, up to 70% of subjects spontaneously recovered at least one motor level, but only 30% recovered two or more motor levels, with lesser values at intermediate time points. AIS grade conversio...

Cross-sectional study. To assess the importance of proprioceptive and vision information on different types of wheelchair seats with regard to postural control in paraplegic individuals during static posture. Centre of Rehabilitation at the University Hospital/FMRP-USP and Rehabilitation Outpatient...
Plasma iron levels appraised 15 days after spinal cord injury in a limb movement animal model.
We found a significant reduction in iron plasma levels after SCI compared with the CTRL group: SCI1 (CTRL: 175+/-10.58 mug dl(-1); SCI: 108.28+/-11.7 mug dl(-1)), SCI3 (CTRL: 195.5+/-11.00 mug dl(-1); SCI: 127.88+/-12.63 mug dl(-1)), SCI7 (CTRL: 186+/-2.97 mug dl(-1); SCI: 89.2+/-15.39 mug dl(-1)) an...
Re: stem cells in the treatment of chronic spinal cord injury: evaluation of somatosensitive-evoked potentials in 39 patients.
Transplantation of a combination of autologous neural differentiated and undifferentiated mesenchymal stem cells into injured spinal cord of...
At 5 weeks after transplantation, the presence of transplanted cells was detected in the spinal cord parenchyma using immunohistochemistry analysis. In all treatment groups (differentiated, undifferentiated and mix), there was less cavitation than lesion sites in the control group. The Basso-Beattie-...
