Purpose: We investigated the influence ankle dorsiflexion range has on center of foot pressure (COP) during squat action and the ability to perform it. Subjects and Methods: We performed measurements of the ankle dorsiflexion range and center of gravity sway during squat action by 42 healthy adults (average age, 20.1 ± 2.4 years). Results: Among the 42 subjects there were 27 who could perform the squat action. A significant correlation, r=0.718, was found between the range of ankle dorsiflexion and anteroposterior COP displacement in squatting. The ranges of ankle dorsiflexion for those who could and could not squat were 18.9 ± 4.6° and 9.6 ± 3.5°, respectively, significantly larger for those who could squat. The number of those who could squat became smaller as the range of ankle dorsiflexion got smaller, and at less than 10° none of the subjects (9) could squat. Conversely, at more than 20°, all subjects (13) could perform the action. Conclusion: The results suggest that when the range of ankle dorsiflexion is insufficient, COP displacement is forced to move posteriorly in squatting, and when the dorsiflexion range is below a set limit, the action becomes impossible.

Case: An 82-year-old man died because of squamous cell carcinoma of the right lung with metastasis to the left femoral bone. At the age of 75 years, he was admitted to our hospital because of hematemesis. Widespread type 3 gastric cancer was detected in the lesser curvature. Computed tomography (CT) showed multiple liver metastases. Preoperative chemotherapy with TS-1/cisplatin (CDDP) was administered. TS-1 was orally administered at 80 mg/body/day and CDDP was administered by intravenous infusion at 20 mg/body/day every week for 3 weeks and this was followed by a drug-free 2-week period as the first course. After the fourth course, gastrectomy was performed for the primary lesion and radiofrequency ablation (RFA) was performed for the liver metastases. The patient survived for more than 7 years with a complete response (CR) and died thereafter because of squamous cell carcinoma of the lung.

Objective: We investigated the relationship between the gross motor function and the causes of death and complications in persons with severe motor and intellectual disabilities (SMID). Methods:The causes of death, complications and ages of the 777 patients who had been admitted to the wards for persons with SMID in institutions involved in the national hospital organization and died from 1999 to 2008, were reported. Of these patients, 679 patients had data available. The patients were divided into 4 groups;group A (479 cases who could not roll over), group B (31 cases who could roll over but could not sit up), group C (53 cases who could sit up but could not stand up), and group D (22 cases who could stand up but could not walk without support). Results:The frequency of swallowing disturbance in group A was significantly higher than that in the other groups, while the frequency of gastroesophageal reflux was significantly lower in group C than in groups A and B. The percentage of tube feeding in group A was higher than that in the other groups. The differenc between groups A and C was statistically significant. The frequency of tracheotomy in group B was significantly lower than in group A and there were no cases of tracheotomy in groups C and D. Concerning the causes of death, the percentages of respiratory disorders in groups A, B, C, D were 52.4, 32.3, 35.8, 31.8, respectively. The mean age of death in group A was about 10 years younger than in the other groups. Conclusions:The gross motor function predicted the likelihood of respiratory and digestive systems complications and was related to life expectancy.
