Comparative study of vacuum extraction for artificial abortion by uterine cavity video monitoring and trans¬vaginal ultrasonography guidance

Objective: Validation of actual performance of the world's first disposable endoscopic cannula researched and developed by Chinese themselves.

Methods: Each case is used by disposable endoscopic cannula simultaneously videotape observation and transvaginal type B ultrasonic real-time monitoring in 32 patients suction abortion surgeries. A comparison of the difference in completion of intrauterine fetal tissue clearance time and the sensitivity of judging correctly are made by two monitoring methods.

Results: There is no significant difference in completion of intrauterine fetal tissue clearance time and the sensitivity of judging correctly by two monitoring methods.

Conclusions?The disposable endoscopic cannula monitoring in the surgery is a more detailed and broader application.

Computing technology is everywhere in our daily life; from personal handheld devices to machinery for industrial use. Today, even the medical and health care industries are increasingly dependent on computer technology as caregivers are expected to attend to more patients without compromising the quality of care.

In subjects with Parkinson the physiotherapy rehabilitation is a very important instrument to fight and slow down the progression of the disease symptoms.
Even if it doesn't have a healing value, integrating it with pharmacologic therapy, it is possible to preserve a good patient physical tone and a significant recovery of motor capacities that are not already compromised. Subjects affected by Parkinson are able to learn motor or procedure processes.
For this reason, a good rehabilitation must include tools that can stimulate the preservation and the improvement of all motor functions, especially to support the everyday life (ADL).

Stroke presents a major global public health challenge, with 5.5 million people dying from stroke each year (WHO 2003) and many more living with chronic disability (Wolfe 2000).
Early rehabilitation is described as an important feature of stroke unit care (Langhorne 1998), but patients are restricted to bed for some days (Diserens 2006) before mobilization is allowed. Very early mobilization has been recently recommended in a number of acute stroke clinical guidelines (Adams 2003; NSF 2007).

Orthodontics: after correction of tooth misalignment, the achievement of the neuromuscular balance, verified by means of BTS TMJOINT, will be safe from relapse.

Diagnosis and care of the dysfunctional patient: TMJOINT is a simple but highly predictive method for identifying the dysfunctional patient, and apply, as a result, suitable odonto-periodontal treatment plans, or otherwise to exclude the occlusal problems and to address the patient to other therapeutic options.

The selective grinding of occlusal surfaces, both natural and artificial (fillings, dentures) can be implemented not only using the conventional method with occlusion foil, but also guided by EMG (Ciusa et al., 2000). In this case the control by EMG can better highlight the existence of an alteration in the neuromuscular system (Ferrario et al., 1998a; Tartaglia et al., 2001).
