We compared 222 adolescents with chronic pain and no documented physiological etiology (headache, back, limb(More)
Psychomotor dysfunction in depression is related to alterations in the 24-h pattern of motor activity. After antidepressant treatment the diurnal pattern may be changed due to improvement of clinical state or pharmacological actions. The purpose of this study was to evaluate in 52 depressed in-patients the effects of imipramine (tricyclic antidepressant)(More)
BACKGROUND Studies on Health Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) of chronic liver patients were performed in clinical populations. These studies included various disease stages but small variations in aetiology and no transplanted patients. We performed a large HRQoL study in non-cirrhotic, cirrhotic and transplanted liver patients with sufficient variety in(More)
UNLABELLED People with intellectual disabilities (IDs) have a higher risk of painful medical conditions. Partly because of the impaired ability to communicate about it, pain is often undertreated. To strengthen pain assessment in this population, we conducted a systematic review to identify behavioral pain indicators in people with IDs by using Embase,(More)
BACKGROUND The Amblyopia and Strabismus Questionnaire (A&SQ) was previously developed to assess quality of life (QoL) in amblyopia and/or strabismus patients. Here, factor analysis with Varimax rotation was employed to confirm that the questions of the A&SQ correlated to dimensions of quality of life (QoL) in such patients. METHODS Responses on the A&SQ(More)
DESIGN The authors reviewed the available pediatric pain literature and selected those studies that reported quantitative information on the reliability and validity of, and the optimal cutoff points for, the visual analog scale (VAS) when used as an observational pediatric pain tool. RESULTS Available psychometric findings concerning the observational(More)

We measured motor activity by wrist-actigraphy and personality dimensions by the Tridimensional Personality Questionnaire (TPQ) of Cloninger. Random Regression Models were used to estimate the effects of(More)

We determined how sociocultural and psychological determinants affect compliance. METHODS Included were amblyopic children between the ages of 3 and 6, living in low(More)
Interrater reliability is considered a precondition for the validity of theoretical models and their corresponding diagnostic instruments. Studies have documented good interrater reliability for structured interviews measuring personality characteristics on a descriptive-phenomenological level but there is little research on reliability of assessment(More)
