An underlying neurologic disorder buy propranolol 80mg low price coronary artery x-ray using contrast, as yet undetermined order 40 mg propranolol with amex capillaries disorder, is currently considered as the likely basic pathomechanism. The initial type demonstrates generalized joint contractures involving primarily the limbs; a second type shows limb contractures in association with other areas of affectation of the viscera, or face and skull; and a third group has been differentiated as having congenital contractures associated with central nervous system disturbance. In the initial group of congenital joint contractures primarily involving the limbs, children are symmetrically affected with a combination of ﬂexion and extension contractures in all limbs. There is marked apparent atrophy of muscle tissue (amyoplasia) and a tremendous reduction in active and passive motion of joints. Characteristically there are usually a few degrees of passive motion beyond the voluntarily producible range of motion. Skin creases tend to be absent and “dimpling” may be present at the joint levels. Commonly in the upper extremities, the shoulders are internally rotated, the elbows may either be ﬂexed or Miscellaneous disorders 122 extended, and the forearms are pronated with the wrists usually in ﬂexion and the thumbs ﬂexed into the palm (Figure 6. In the lower extremities the feet are characteristically in equinovarus (clubfoot) with the knees presenting with either ﬂexion or extension contractures and even knee dislocation. The hips may be located and lying in ﬂexion and external rotation, or they may be dislocated (Figure 6. It is important to remember that intelligence is generally normal, and treatment is designed to deal with the very severe contractures and deformities. A distal form of this basic type of involvement has been recognized, primarily involving the hands and feet, with a characteristic posturing as seen in the more extensive type. A much larger group of patients have multiple congenital contractures associated with central nervous system dysfunction and are commonly associated with chromosomal abnormalities. There is a very high attrition rate during the ﬁrst few years of life – nearing 50 percent. Two types of presentation of this are generally recognized: a neuropathic form and a myopathic form. The myopathic form is not associated with changes in the brain or the anterior horn cells and appears to be a direct affectation of the muscle tissue with replacement thereof with ﬁbrous and fatty tissue. The deformities seen are common to all types of arthrogryposis, and pose perplexing problems in orthopedic management. The severe rigidity of the tissues necessitates extensive surgical releases and bony reconstructive procedures to restore 123 Cerebral palsy alignment, and position the lower extremities for weight bearing. Surgery is most often directed at the lower extremities, the hand, and the management of spinal deformity. Cerebral palsy In spite of the fact that entire texts have been written about this condition, it is appropriate to include a discussion of management, particularly as it pertains to the perspectives of the pediatric orthopedist and the primary care physician. Cerebral palsy is generally deﬁned as a non-progressive, non-transient disorder affecting the brain or spinal cord and occurring during the antenatal or early postnatal period. It is suggested that the lesion affects the developing central nervous system in a one-time fashion. Associated with the noted impairment are the obvious involvement of mentation, speech, hearing, vision, and sensation. The result of the neurologic impairment is a disturbance of movement with skeletal deformation. Cerebral palsy classiﬁcation by type Affected patients are generally classiﬁed as to the type of neurologic involvement, and as to Spasticity (85–90%) the pattern of involvement within the trunk Athetosis and extremities (Pearls 6.
In effect cheap propranolol 40 mg free shipping blood vessels on the liver, each author must be able to present the results proven 40 mg propranolol cardiovascular klabunde, defend the implications, 31 Scientific Writing Decide authorship Agree on authors’ roles and responsibilities Agree on acknowledgements Agree on up to three journals Obtain instructions to authors Collect the “Uniform Requirements” and any other useful checklists Figure 2. These responsibilities protect coauthors and preclude “gift” authors, since no researcher should allow their names to be associated with results that they know very little about. Whatever their positions in the author list, coauthors always have both ethical and professional responsibilities for the content of the paper. Thus, only the people who have participated sufficiently in the research project to take public responsibility for the content should be included. Once the authorship list is finalised, you can work towards an agreement on the role of each coauthor and the work that they will put into the paper. There are no formal guidelines so you will have to negotiate your expectations with those of your coauthors. Although the number of authors on journal articles has tended to increase in recent years, four or five authors is usually optimal. Limiting the number of authors may be particularly important for the career advancement of students who are undertaking a higher degree and who are required to make a very substantial contribution to their papers. Having fewer authors also avoids diluting the responsibility that each author must take for the paper. In practice, more than four authors should be included only if there is a good reason for doing so and some journals set author limits. For example, the journal Thrombosis and Haemostasis sets a limit of eight and Chest sets a limit of seven. The New England Journal of Medicine sets a limit of 12 authors, after which other names must appear in a footnote. A suggested maximum number of authors for each type of publication is shown in Table 2. A study on multiple authorship showed that the mean number of authors on journal articles increased from 2·2 in 1975 to 4·5 in 1995, with a disproportionate growth in the inclusion of professors and departmental chairpersons. Some journals, for example JAMA and the New England Journal of Medicine, now ask authors to certify that they meet the Vancouver criteria when a paper is submitted, and many journals include these criteria in their instructions to authors. Journals such as the BMJ and Lancet also request a statement of each author’s exact contribution to the paper. To avoid authorship problems, research groups need to develop a departmental policy on authorship criteria that is regularly visited, discussed, and updated in a consensus forum. Many 34 Getting started research institutions also develop their own code of ethics for acknowledgements and contributions in publications. Standardised policies that are developed collaboratively and ratified by the heads of research departments within institutions are worth their weight in gold in preventing conflicts and resolving contentious and often emotional authorship and acknowledgement issues. Because authorship is such a serious issue, many journals will not consider a paper for publication without the signatures of all authors. Most journals also require a declaration of competing interests from their authors and contributors. The Lancet in its instructions to authors suggests that authors use the following statement: I declare that I participated in the (here list contributions made to the study such as design, execution or analysis of the paper) by … and colleagues entitled … and that I have seen and approved the final version. It is also a good idea to add “I also declare that I have no conflict of interest in connection with this paper other than any noted in the covering letter to the editor”. If these statements are completed on separate pages and left undated, they can be used if the paper is rejected and then submitted to another journal. There have been cases where pharmaceutical companies have applied undue pressure on researchers to avoid publishing data that suggest that their products are inferior or ineffective. In response to what editors perceive as increasing control by drug companies over how the results of sponsored studies are analysed, many journals now require that authors fully disclose their own roles and those of their sponsors.
