Triangle Tilt Procedure Addresses Primary Issue of Scapular Elevation
Author: Andrew Lyons
 
The Triangle Tilt surgical procedure combined with capsulodesis restores the arm to a more natural position by addressing the primary issue of scapular elevation. The clavicle and acromion are repositioned in a controlled fashion and allowed to re-align and interlock naturally, effectively restoring the spatial relationship of the clavicle and scapula (tilting the triangle). A posterior gleno-humeral capsulodesis is also performed at this time, to tighten the laxity of the shoulder that has been

Threshold Electrical Stimulation (TES) and the TASC Network Model of Recovery from Brachial Plexus Injury (BPI)
Author: Rahul Nath
 
Threshold Electrical Stimulation or TES was first developed as a pediatric protocol for neuromuscular stimulation. There are some key differences between TES and classic Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES). Both techniques use an electrical current to affect the muscle, but the method of delivery is not the same. With NMES, there are short periods of relatively high intensity stimulation that causes the muscle to contract. TES delivers the stimulation over a longer period during sle
