Asha

 

al-Asha (poetic nickname meaning “weak-sighted”; real name, Abu Basir Maimun ibn-Qais al-Bakri). Born 530; died about 629. Arab poet.

Asha spent most of his life wandering about Arabia and supporting himself by reading his poetry. He was associated with Nestorian Christians in Hira. He did not accept Islam although he was a monotheist and wrote a laudatory qasida (ode) in honor of the prophet Muhammad. He was considered the innovator and best representative of “wine” poetry in ancient Arabia. His qasida is included in the collection of the seven best works of ancient Arabian poetry.

Early diagnosis and intervention have been claimed to reduce the risk of long-term disability and injury progression (2,6,8,31), with early arthroscopy and peripheral TFCC repair recommended for cases of DRUJ instability (10,20).
19,33,35) Generally speaking, arthroscopic repair of peripheral tears involves increased immobilization and delayed rehabilitation as compared to central tears due to the influence TFCC function on DRUJ stability.
The soft tissue stabilizers of the DRUJ can be divided into static and dynamic restraints.
3) Motion through the DRUJ is composed of rotation and translation or gliding of the radius around a stable ulna.
In chronic isolated DRUJ dislocations more than one components of TFCC would have been injured apart from dorsal and volar radio ulnar ligaments.
One of the problem in intra articular reconstruction of DRUJ would be chances of injuring the normal components of TFCC and its related morbidity.
If there is significant posttraumatic arthritis or persistent instability at the DRUJ after a corrective osteotomy of the radius, a distal ulna resection may be necessary.
Early intervention allows correction of the deformity through immature callus before soft tissue contracture develops, minimizes potential DRUJ dysfunction or arthritis, and lessens the period of disability for the patient.
The DRUJ is conferred stability through intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms.
The bony and ligamentous restraints of the DRUJ enable controlled pronation and supination.
They are often associated with injuries to the ECU subsheath and DRUJ instability.
The DRUJ is one of the most significant causes of pain and disability in the RA patient.
