Effects of home-based training with telemonitoring guidance in low to moderate risk patients entering cardiac rehabilitation: short-term results of the FIT@Home study
TLDR
This analysis shows that HT with telemonitoring guidance has similar short-term effects on exercise capacity and quality of life as CT in CR patients, without significant between-group differences. Expand
Percutaneous laser disc decompression versus conventional microdiscectomy in sciatica: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Overall, a strategy of PLDD, with delayed surgery if needed, resulted in noninferior outcomes at 1 year, compared with conventional surgery. Expand
Cost-effectiveness of pharmacogenomics in clinical practice: a case study of thiopurine methyltransferase genotyping in acute lymphoblastic leukemia in Europe.
TLDR
The model has established that TPMT testing in ALL patients has a favorable cost-effectiveness ratio and should be seriously considered as an integral part of healthcare prior to the initiation of therapy with thiopurine drugs. Expand
Interspinous process device versus standard conventional surgical decompression for lumbar spinal stenosis: randomized controlled trial
TLDR
This double blinded study could not confirm the hypothesized short term advantage of interspinous process device over conventional “simple” decompression and even showed a fairly high reoperation rate after interspinning process device implantation. Expand
Domains of quality of life: results of a three-stage Delphi consensus procedure among patients, family of patients, clinicians, scientists and the general public
TLDR
The Delphi-procedure shows that health-related QoL (utility) scales need to put sufficient emphasis on mental and social domains to capture aspects ofQoL that are essential to people. Expand
Present evidence on the value of HPV testing for cervical cancer screening: a model-based exploration of the (cost-)effectiveness.
TLDR
Although small follow-up studies and studies with limited strength of design suggest that HPV testing may well improve cervical cancer screening, only large longitudinal screening studies on the association between HPV infection and the development of neoplasias can give outcomes that would enable a firm conclusion to be made on the (cost-)effectiveness of HPV screening. Expand
Cost-effectiveness of cervical cancer screening: comparison of screening policies.
TLDR
For some countries, the recommended screening policies were close to efficient, but the cost-effectiveness could be improved by reducing the number of scheduled examinations, starting them at later ages, or lengthening the screening interval. Expand
Remifentanil patient controlled analgesia versus epidural analgesia in labour. A multicentre randomized controlled trial
TLDR
It is hypothesize that remifentanil patient controlled analgesia is as effective in improving pain appreciation scores as epidural analgesia, with lower costs and easier achievement of 24 hours availability of pain relief for women in labour and efficient pain Relief for those with a contraindication for epidural morphine. Expand
Cost of rheumatic disorders in the Netherlands.
TLDR
Total societal costs of rheumatic disorders in the Netherlands amount to €4.7 million a year, that is, €2665 per person with rhematic disorders, including intangible costs, in this study. Expand
Management of Undescended Testis
TLDR
There is room for patient (or parent) preference with respect to the performance and timing of surgery in case of unilateral UDT, and for bilateral UDT (both congenital and acquired), orchidopexy at any age provides considerable benefit, in particular through improved fertility. Expand
