What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Surgery
  • Anatomy
  • Internal medicine

Kai Nan An mainly investigates Anatomy, Cadaver, Biomechanics, Elbow and Orthodontics. Ligament, Tendon, Wrist, Humerus and Cadaveric spasm are among the areas of Anatomy where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His Cadaver research also works with subjects such as

  • Biceps most often made with reference to Upper limb,
  • Ulna and related Forearm.

His Biomechanics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Stress and Biomedical engineering. His Elbow research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Joint, Medial collateral ligament and Valgus. Kai Nan An has researched Orthodontics in several fields, including Range of motion, Shear force, Ankle and Isometric exercise.

His most cited work include:

  • A standardized method for the assessment of shoulder function (1150 citations)
  • Articular and ligamentous contributions to the stability of the elbow joint (699 citations)
  • The effect of a glenoid defect on anteroinferior stability of the shoulder after Bankart repair: a cadaveric study. (651 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Anatomy, Tendon, Biomechanics, Cadaver and Surgery. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Orthodontics and Anatomy. Kai Nan An combines subjects such as Joint, Kinematics and Range of motion with his study of Orthodontics.

His Tendon research incorporates elements of Carpal tunnel syndrome, Carpal tunnel, Rotator cuff and Biomedical engineering. The various areas that he examines in his Cadaver study include Humerus, Upper limb and Displacement. His Elbow research includes elements of Forearm, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Ulna and Valgus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Anatomy (49.21%)
  • Tendon (24.85%)
  • Biomechanics (22.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Anatomy (49.21%)
  • Tendon (24.85%)
  • Surgery (18.07%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Kai Nan An mainly focuses on Anatomy, Tendon, Surgery, Orthodontics and Biomedical engineering. His study connects Weight-bearing and Anatomy. His Tendon study incorporates themes from Ultimate tensile strength, Stromal cell, Carpal tunnel syndrome, Carpal tunnel and Bone marrow.

His research integrates issues of Saline and Hyaluronic acid in his study of Surgery. His research on Orthodontics also deals with topics like

  • Range of motion which connect with Muscle stiffness,
  • Thumb, which have a strong connection to Kinematics. His studies in Cadaver integrate themes in fields like Pulley and Elbow.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Validation of shear wave elastography in skeletal muscle. (268 citations)
  • Ultrasound elastography: the new frontier in direct measurement of muscle stiffness. (151 citations)
  • The stabilizing mechanism of the Latarjet procedure: a cadaveric study. (140 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Surgery
  • Internal medicine
  • Orthopedic surgery

Kai Nan An spends much of his time researching Tendon, Anatomy, Surgery, Cadaveric spasm and Biomedical engineering. His Tendon research includes themes of Ultimate tensile strength, Ligament, Carpal tunnel syndrome, Rotator cuff and Bone marrow. His Anatomy research integrates issues from Weight-bearing and Ultrasound.

The various areas that Kai Nan An examines in his Surgery study include Hyaluronic acid and Histology. His studies deal with areas such as Orthodontics, Bone plate, Torsion, Cadaver and Shoulders as well as Cadaveric spasm. In his research on the topic of Orthodontics, Muscle stiffness is strongly related with Range of motion.
