Knee osteoarthritis results in changes that affect balance. It has been reported that osteoarthritis worsens proprioception and increases the risk of falling. The objective of this study was to assess changes in balance among patients with knee osteoarthritis at 1 year after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery and its relationship with clinical variables.(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the efficacy of botulinum toxin type A for the treatment of spastic shoulder pain in patients after stroke. DESIGN Double-blind randomized clinical trial. PATIENTS Of 31 patients enrolled from an acute-care hospital in Spain, 2 cases dropped out (drop-out rate 6.5%). Fourteen subjects were treated with infiltration of 500 units of(More)
BACKGROUND Although it has been demonstrated that the peak height velocity (PHV) is a predictive factor of progression in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS), little is known about the usefulness of angle progression in clinical practice. The purpose of this study was to establish a relationship between height and angle velocities, as well as to determine(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate prospectively the Trunk Control Test (TCT) correlation at admission to rehabilitation with length of stay, functional independence measure (FIM), gait velocity, walking distance and balance measured at discharge in 28 hemiparetic patients. FIM and TCT were registered on admission. Outcome measures at discharge were:(More)
The opinion of patients expressed in terms of satisfaction is extremely important in any evaluation of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) results. The primary endpoint of this study was to determine the quantitative and qualitative expectations of elderly patients before undergoing TKA. Cross-sectional study of 497 patients over 65 years was performed before(More)
INTRODUCTION Among stroke consequences highlights the negative impact on the informal carers' health related quality of life (HRQoL). OBJECTIVES To identify HRQoL dimensions most greatly affected in stroke caregivers and establish relations with dependent variables of survivors and caregivers. METHODS Transversal study of 215 informal caregivers of(More)
BACKGROUND Despite preoperative anaemia treatment, a risk of postoperative anaemia remains. This randomized, controlled study evaluated the efficacy of i.v. ferric carboxymaltose (FCM) as postoperative anaemia treatment after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). METHODS TKA patients with postoperative anaemia [haemoglobin (Hb) 8.5-12.0 g dl(-1)] without prior(More)
STUDY DESIGN A retrospective study of a cohort of 132 girls with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). OBJECTIVES Evaluate the changes in height and scoliosis angle over time by the use of a mathematical model and determine a relationship between height and angle values in patients with AIS. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The influence of growth on(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy of low-frequency low-intensity electrotherapy and manual lymphatic drainage in the treatment of chronic upper limb breast cancer-related lymphoedema. DESIGN Cross-over single-blind random clinical trial. SETTING Rehabilitation service. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-six women with chronic upper limb breast cancer-related(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the changes in shoulder strength of patients with breast cancer during the first year after surgery; and to compare the effect of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) and axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) on shoulder strength. DESIGN Prospective longitudinal observational study from presurgery to 1 year after. SETTING Tertiary(More)
