[Thoracic outlet syndrome: A case of scalene muscle hypertrophy in long-term follow-up of diagnosis of cervical discopathy].
 

Author(s): Damla Yürük, Güngör Enver Özgencil, Ahmet Yılmaz, Merve Hayriye Kocaoğlu, Sırrı Sinan Bilgin, İbrahim Aşık

Journal: Agri. 2016 Jul;28(3):158-161.

 

Described in this article is diagnosis and treatment of mixed type of thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) resulting from scalene muscle hypertrophy. Many diseases should be considered in the differential diagnosis to definitively diagnose this syndrome, and it is necessary to ask about ...

Protein Supplementation Does Not Further Increase Latissimus Dorsi Muscle Fiber Hypertrophy after Eight Weeks of Resistance Training in Novice Subjects, but Partially Counteracts the Fast-to-Slow Muscle Fiber Transition.
 

Author(s): Antonio Paoli, Quirico F Pacelli, Pasqua Cancellara, Luana Toniolo, Tatiana Moro, Marta Canato, Danilo Miotti, Marco Neri, Aldo Morra, Marco Quadrelli, Carlo Reggiani

Journal:

 

The response to resistance training and protein supplementation in the latissimus dorsi muscle (LDM) has never been investigated. We investigated the effects of resistance training (RT) and protein supplementation on muscle mass, strength, and fiber characteristics of the LDM. Eighteen ...

Exome Sequencing Identified a Splice Site Mutation in FHL1 that Causes Uruguay Syndrome, an X-Linked Disorder With Skeletal Muscle Hypertrophy and Premature Cardiac Death.
 

Author(s): Yuan Xue, Benedikt Schoser, Aliz R Rao, Roberto Quadrelli, Alicia Vaglio, Verena Rupp, Christine Beichler, Stanley F Nelson, Gudrun Schapacher-Tilp, Christian Windpassinger, William R Wilcox

Journal: Circ Cardiovasc Genet. 2016 Apr;9(2):130-5.

 

Previously, we reported a rare X-linked disorder, Uruguay syndrome in a single family. The main features are pugilistic facies, skeletal deformities, and muscular hypertrophy despite a lack of exercise and cardiac ventricular hypertrophy leading to premature death.

Muscle memory and a new cellular model for muscle atrophy and hypertrophy.
 

Author(s): Kristian Gundersen

Journal: J. Exp. Biol.. 2016 Jan;219(Pt 2):235-42.

 

Memory is a process in which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved. For vertebrates, the modern view has been that it occurs only in the brain. This review describes a cellular memory in skeletal muscle in which hypertrophy is 'remembered' such that a fibre that has previously ...

The molecular basis for load-induced skeletal muscle hypertrophy.
 

Author(s): George R Marcotte, Daniel W D West, Keith Baar

Journal: Calcif. Tissue Int.. 2015 Mar;96(3):196-210.

 

In a mature (weight neutral) animal, an increase in muscle mass only occurs when the muscle is loaded sufficiently to cause an increase in myofibrillar protein balance. A tight relationship between muscle hypertrophy, acute increases in protein balance, and the activity of the mechanistic ...

Skeletal muscle hypertrophy after aerobic exercise training.
 

Author(s): Adam R Konopka, Matthew P Harber

Journal: Exerc Sport Sci Rev. 2014 Apr;42(2):53-61.

 

Current dogma suggests that aerobic exercise training has minimal effects on skeletal muscle size. We and others have demonstrated that aerobic exercise acutely and chronically alters protein metabolism and induces skeletal muscle hypertrophy. These findings promote an antithesis ...
