BACKGROUND The cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) results of blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) and arterial spin labeling (ASL) MRI studies performed in patients with cerebrovascular disease (steno-occlusive vascular disease or stroke) were systematically reviewed. SUMMARY Thirty-one articles were included. Twenty-three (74.2%) studies used BOLD MRI to(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effectiveness and safety of interventions used for rehabilitation after open reduction and internal fixation of ankle fractures. METHODS A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed using both randomized trials and cohort studies. The effect of mobilization, weight-bearing, and unprotected weight-bearing as tolerated on(More)
OBJECTIVE The postoperative care regimes of ankle fractures are studied for over 30 years and recommendations have shifted only slightly in the last decades. However, study methodology might have evolved. The aim of this study was to evaluate the changes in time in the design, quality and outcome measures of studies investigating the postoperative care of(More)

BACKGROUND The optimal post-operative care regimen after surgically fixed Lauge Hansen supination exorotation injuries remains to be established. This study compares whether unprotected weight bearing as tolerated is superior to protected weight bearing and unprotected non-weight bearing in terms of functional outcome and safety.
