As mentioned previously, Kosiak undertook seminal research by applying loads to the trochanters and ischial tuberosities
of dogs .
Other investigators, such as Micic50 and Clavert, (51) also found that early post-operative failures of the locking plate were associated with initial malreduction, poor operative technique (including inadequate screw length or plate positioning), loss of medial support, and failure to adequately fix the tuberosities
Contact pressures (mean [+ or -] standard deviation) under ischial tuberosities
for subjects (N = 10) while sitting on each studied cushions.
Prior to the study, the probes of the O2C were securely attached to the skin with adhesive medical tape right beneath the ischial tuberosities
One FSR was attached to the seat pan underneath the cushion where one of the subject's ischial tuberosities
would approximately rest, and the other two FSRs were affixed where the subject's thighs would rest.
However, if a tear cannot be repaired primarily to the tuberosities
despite all mobilization techniques, then the patient may require a salvage-type reconstruction in order to restore some level of function and reduce pain.
Such patients, who lack natural sensations of discomfort and pain, may experience prolonged compression of soft tissues under their ischial tuberosities
A horizontal line was drawn through the bottom of the ischial tuberosities
We studied how neuromuscular stimulation through a magnetic coil and a sacral anterior root stimulator (SARS) implant (used for bladder emptying) affects pressure and skin blood circulation under the ischial tuberosities
(ITs) of participants with spinal cord injury (SCI).
The ascending branch of the anterior humeral circumflex enters the proximal humerus at the upper end of the bicipital groove or via branches into the greater and lesser tuberosities
Pressures and skin blood circulation under ischial tuberosities
before and during functional magnetic stimulation (FMS) of five subjects with spinal cord injury.
Many investigators stress the importance of adequate fixation of the tuberosities
and note the importance of proper placement of the greater tuberosity in an anatomic position, approximately 5 mm beneath the most superior projection of the humeral head.
