The aim of this study was to assess spinal mobility status and Quality of life (QoL) of patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and determine the relationship between spinal mobility and measures of clinical condition including QoL. A total of 74 patients with AS were included in this study. Disease specific instruments Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate short- and long-term effects of structured exercise program in euthyroid patients with Graves' disease. METHODS The study employed a retrospective case-control design. The exercise group (n = 62) underwent 3 weeks of structured exercise program consisting of daily walking, strengthening, and stretching exercises while the control group(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the relationship between the H-reflex (H/M ratio) and continuous intrathecal baclofen (CITB) dose after pump implantation for control of spastic hypertonia. METHODS Soleus H-reflexes were serially recorded in 34 subjects (19 men, mean age 32 years, mean follow-up 1.7 years) during simple continuous mode of CITB delivery. Different(More)
The assessment of the quality of life as a subjective measure of therapeutic intervention outcome appears to be increasingly adopted by different fields of medicine. In contrast to conventional indicators of condition, which are recognized as objective outcomes, the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) focuses on the patient himself. HRQoL has been(More)
INTRODUCTION Electrodiagnostic tests are performed in order to obtain information on the severity of lesions and the possibility of functional recovery. Classic electrodiagnostics implies excitability testing by faradic and galvanic currents, and chronaximetry. This method has been pushed out by new diagnostic procedures, although it is a reliable method(More)
INTRODUCTION Total hip arthroplasty improves the hip functional status and quality of life of operated patients. The surgery outcome is determined by several numerical methods. The aim of this study was to evaluate the hip functional status 1 and 5 years after total hip arthroplasty using a modified Harris hip score. MATERIAL AND METHODS 75 patients with(More)
INTRODUCTION Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic constantly deteriorating disease of unpredictable clinical course, with exacerbations, remissions and damaged joints. It leads to the loss of self-sufficiency, independence in performing many daily activities, decrease of working ability and invalidity. Beside physical factors, which are regarded as most(More)
INTRODUCTION This paper deals with implementation of functional tests used in early rehabilitation into medical record databases. A pilot-testing of certain measurement instruments was performed to establish if they can be used in short intervals as variables for traumatic brain injury patients and those with stroke in intensive care units. The steering(More)
Stimulation-induced plasticity represents an experimental model of motor cortex reorganization. It can be produced in awaked humans by combining the non-invasive electrical stimulation of somatosensory afferents via mixed peripheral nerves with the transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the motor cortex. Animal experiments indicate that an application(More)
