We aimed to investigate the characteristics of changes in amount of physical activity of patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) before/after endovascular treatment (EVT) combined with exercise training. Twenty-two patients with peripheral arterial disease at stage-II of the Fontaine classification who received EVT combined with exercise training(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical significance of in-patient step count after cardiac surgery remains unknown. The aim of this study was to determine whether the number of steps walked during the in-patient stay after cardiac surgery predicts the risk of cardiac re-hospitalization in the following year. METHODS One hundred and thirty-three patients who underwent(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this multicenter study was to evaluate the relationship between preoperative kidney function, postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI), and postoperative fluid balance (POFB) with the progress of early postoperative cardiac rehabilitation (CR) in patients undergoing isolated cardiac surgery. METHODS Four hundred twenty three(More)
[Purpose] This study aimed to elucidate characteristics of postoperative physical functional recovery in octogenarians undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery. [Subjects and Methods] This was a multi-center, retrospective study. Nine hundred and twenty-seven elective isolated coronary artery bypass graft surgeries were evaluated (746 males and 181(More)
[Purpose] It is important to facilitate intestinal motility in patients with reduced bowel movement through physiotherapy. The purpose of the present study was to compare the effects of passive exercise of the lower limbs and trunk (PELT) and combination therapies (COM) with those of conventional thermotherapy (TT) on bowel sounds (BSs) in healthy adult(More)
[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to clarify the effects of passive exercise of the lower limbs and trunk (PELT) in ICU patients after cardiovascular surgery with decreased bowel motility. [Subjects and Methods] Ten ICU patients with clinically-apparent decreased bowel motility during the period of April to July 2016 were enrolled this study. Bowel(More)
[Purpose] Currently, the six-minute walk distance (6MWD) is used to evaluate exercise capacity in people following lung resection for non-small cell lung cancer. However, it is unclear whether the 6MWD can detect changes in cardiorespiratory fitness induced by exercise training or lung resection. Conversely, the stair-climbing test is used frequently for(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to examine factors that delay weaning from ventilation after cardiac surgery. METHODS A retrospective examination was made on 1,033 patients who had undergone cardiac surgery through a midsternal incision between January 2009 and July 2011. The items examined were duration of postoperative ventilation, patient's background, and(More)
This study is to evaluate the impact of cooperation between acute care hospital and rehabilitation hospital on physical function, exercise tolerance, activities of daily living (ADL), health-related quality of life (HR-QOL), and psychological function in heart disease patients undergoing cardiac rehabilitation. Among patients undergoing concurrent medical(More)
[Purpose] This study aimed to evaluate the effect of in-hospital physical activity on patient prognosis after lower extremity bypass surgery for peripheral arterial disease. [Subjects and Methods] A total of 13 patients (16 limbs; 11 males and 2 females; mean age [standard deviation], 72.8 [5.9] years) who underwent lower extremity bypass surgery for(More)
