Dimopoulou I, Anthi A, Mastora Z, Theodorakopoulou M, Konstandinidis A, Evangelou E, Mandragos K, Roussos C: Health-related quality of life and disability in survivors of multiple trauma one year after intensive care unit discharge. Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2004;83:171–176. ObjectiveTo evaluate health-related quality of life and disability in multiple-trauma patients requiring intensive care unit management. DesignA total of 87 survivors of multiple trauma, with a median age of 31 yrs and a median… Expand
Outcome after injury: memories, health-related quality of life, anxiety, and symptoms of depression after intensive care.
TLDR
The results highlight the importance of treating the delusional memories experienced by ICU patients with a trauma diagnosis as a postinjury factor with a potential to create anxiety and symptoms of depression and which may affect HRQoL after discharge. Expand
Quality of life after severe trauma: results from the global trauma trial with recombinant Factor VII.
TLDR
Three months after severe trauma injury, survivors report very poor HRQOL, a sign that physical wellbeing is generally more negatively affected than mental wellbeing. Expand
Health related quality of life in trauma patients. Data from a one-year follow up study compared with the general population
TLDR
Better HRQOL at 12 months was predicted mainly by optimism, low score for depression and PTS symptoms at baseline, which improved significantly from the 3 to the 12 months follow up in the trauma patients. Expand
Psychological morbidity and health-related quality of life after injury: multicentre cohort study
TLDR
Hospitalised injuries result in substantial reductions in HRQoL up to 12 months later, and depression and anxiety early in the recovery period are independently associated with lower HRZoL. Expand
Predictors of health-related quality of life 3 months after traumatic injury.

TLDR
Findings can help clinicians to understand illness perceptions of patients with traumatic injury, and help provide a foundation for an interventional program to help patients have better HRQoL following traumatic injury. Expand
A study of patients’ quality of life more than 5 years after trauma: a prospective follow-up
TLDR
More than five years after a moderate to severe injury, patients’ quality of life was significantly impacted, resulting in significant socio-economic consequences, which raises the question of whether or not early rehabilitation programs should be implemented in order to limit the long-term impact of major trauma. Expand
Long-term multidimensional functional consequences of severe multiple injuries two years after trauma: a prospective longitudinal cohort study.
TLDR
Assessment of functioning and quality of life after severe injuries using a prospective cohort design showed that the largest difference was for physical functioning, social functioning, and physical and emotional role functioning. Expand
Long-term survival and health-related quality of life 6 to 9 years after trauma.
TLDR
Outcome 6 years to nine years after moderate to severe injury in terms of survival, Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL) and employment status was significantly lower for injured patients than a matched control group. Expand
Quality of life after multiple trauma: results from a patient cohort treated in a certified trauma network
TLDR
The consistently low EQ-5D index relative the reference population and the lack of a difference between level I and II centers within an entire trauma network suggest that improved strategies for polytrauma aftercare are called for. Expand
Health-related quality of life and influence of age after trauma: An overview
TLDR
The purposes of this review were to review the HRQOL in patients after trauma and to discuss measures of HRQ OL in patients with and without brain injury as well as the effects of age on outcome andHRQOL. Expand

Quality of life after multiple trauma requiring intensive care
TLDR
After multiple trauma, patients reported significant decreases in their quality of life in relation to their overall health, happiness, ability to think and to pursue leisure activities, their income and their employment. Expand
Analysis of quality of life in polytraumatized patients two years after discharge from an intensive care unit.
TLDR
Quality of life after 2 years is influenced by age, severity of illness, and previous quality of life, which showed that polytraumatized patients admitted into ICU showed a worsening of theirquality of life 1 and 2 years after ICU discharge, with an improvement between 1 and2 years. Expand
The importance of gender on outcome after major trauma: functional and psychologic outcomes in women versus men.
TLDR
Men are at risk for markedly worse functional and psychological outcomes after major trauma than men, independent of injury severity and mechanism, and gender differences in short- and long-term trauma outcomes have important implications for future studies of recovery from trauma. Expand
The Sickness Impact Profile as a tool to evaluate functional outcome in trauma patients.
TLDR
The Sickness Impact Profile (SIP), a widely used measure of general health status, would be a useful tool to evaluate the long-term functional outcome of trauma patients and that the SIP would identify unexpected problems in the recovery process and groups of patients at high risk for long- term disability. Expand
The impact of major in-hospital complications on functional outcome and quality of life after trauma.
TLDR
These results provide new evidence that major in-hospital complications may have an important impact on functional outcomes after major trauma. Expand
A prospective study of predictors of disability at 3 months after non-central nervous system trauma.
OBJECTIVE To delineate which injury-related, demographic, and psychosocial variables were predictive of severe disability (limitations in the performance of socially defined roles and tasks) at 3Expand
Functional limitation after major trauma: a more sensitive assessment using the Quality of Well-being scale--the trauma recovery pilot project.
Little is known about the degree of disability and quality of life of patients after major trauma. We conducted a prospective study to examine the incidence and predictors of functional limitationExpand
Outcome after major trauma: discharge and 6-month follow-up results from the Trauma Recovery Project.
TLDR
Postinjury functional limitation is a clinically significant complication in trauma patients at discharge and a 6-month follow-up, and the Quality of Well-Being (QWB) scale yields a more sensitive assessment of functional status than traditional ADL instruments. Expand
Long-term prevalence of impairments and disabilities after multiple trauma.
TLDR
Although overall changes in social network quantity and quality were small, significantly more subjects with cognitive impairment or vocational disability experienced a decline in the quality and quantity of their social network after trauma. Expand
Outcome, functional autonomy, and quality of life of elderly patients with a long-term intensive care unit stay
TLDR
It is suggested that persistent high levels of ICU therapeutic intensity were associated with a reasonable hospital survival in elderly patients experiencing prolonged mechanical ventilatory support and these results are sufficient to justify prolonged ICU stays for elderly patients. Expand
