OBJECTIVES: There is ambiguity concerning the walk tests available for functional assessment of coronary patients, particularly for the walking speed. This study explores the psychometric properties of two walking tests, based on fixed-distance tests, at comfortable and fast velocity, in stabilized patients at the end of a cardiac rehabilitation program. METHODS: At a three-day interval 58 coronary patients (mean age of 64.85±6.03 years, 50 men) performed three walk tests, the first two at a comfortable speed in a random order (6-minute walk test - 6MWT - and 400-metre comfortable walk test - 400mCWT) and the third at a brisk speed (200-metre fast walk test - 200mFWT)...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to evaluate the clinical outcomes after surgical repair of patellar tendon rupture (PTR) and compare the evolution of 2 types of rupture (acute and chronic) after the same rehabilitation protocol. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study of patients with PTR treated between January 2006 and January 2014 in the department of trauma surgery, Ibn Rochd university hospital, Casablanca. RESULTS: We evaluated 25 patients (21 men) after a median follow-up of 75 months (range 29-120)...

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a dehabilitating chronic condition occurring with peripheral lesions. There is growing consensus for a central contribution to CRPS. Although the nature of this central body representation disorder is increasingly debated, it has been repeatedly argued that CRPS results in motor neglect of the affected side. The present article describes a comprehensive and quantitative case report demonstrating that: (1) not all patients with chronic CRPS exhibit decreased spatial attention for the affected side and (2) patients may actually exhibit a substantial, broad and reliable attentional bias toward the painful side, akin to spatial neglect for the healthy side...

OBJECTIVES: The Constant-Murley score (CS) has been used for more than 25 years to assess shoulder function. Strength by itself accounts for 25% of the total score. The measurement at 90° abduction seems to be sometimes limited by pain, particularly with tendinopathy or subacromial impingement. We compared the assessment of isometric strength in anterior forward flexion and abduction and its effect on pain and total CS. METHODS: Strength was assessed by CS at both 90° forward flexion and abduction in the scapular plane by using an Isobex dynamometer, the first position tested being randomized...

Cardiovascular events and emotional disorders share a common epidemiology, thus suggesting fundamental pathways linking these different diseases. Growing evidence in the literature highlights the influence of psychological determinants in somatic diseases. A patient's socio-economic aspects, personality traits, health behavior and even biological pathways may contribute to the course of cardiovascular disease. Cardiac events often occur suddenly and the episode can be traumatic for people not prepared for such an event...

BACKGROUND: A growing need in clinical practice of rehabilitation and orthopaedic medicine is for objective outcome tools to estimate physical activity. Current techniques show limited validity or are too demanding for routine clinical use. Accelerometer-based activity monitors (AMs) have shown promise for measuring physical activity in healthy people but lack validity in impaired patients. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to validate an accelerometer-based AM in impaired, slow-walking, crutch-supported patients after total joint arthroplasty (TJA)...

BACKGROUND: Isometric strengthening has been rarely studied in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD), mainly because of possible potential side effects and lack of appropriate and reliable devices. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to compare 2 different modes of resistance training, an isometric mode with the Huber Motion Lab (HML) and traditional strength training (TST), in CHD patients undergoing a cardiac rehabilitation program. DESIGN: We randomly assigned 50 patients to HML or TST...

In this article, we discuss certain contemporary and controversial topics in cardiovascular (CV) nutrition including recent data regarding the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet, the role of saturated fatty acids, red meat and the microbiome in CV disease and the current role of personalized CV nutrition. Findings from the PREDIMED study now demonstrate the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet even in the absence of heart disease. The study highlighted that even small, sustained and easily implementable changes to diet can provide significant health benefits even in Mediterranean regions...

OBJECTIVE: Sleep breathing disorders (SBD) are the most common sleep disorders frequently under-diagnosed in elderly populations. However, it is it well known that this disorder may contribute to the age-related cognitive decline. In a cohort of healthy elderly subjects, we performed an 8-year longitudinal study to assess whether changes in cognitive function occur in untreated SBD elderly and the nocturnal factors implicated in these changes. MATERIAL/PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 559 participants of the community-based PROOF study aged 67years at the study entry and free from neurological disorders were examined...

OBJECTIVE: Gait disorders are associated with increased fall risk, dementia and loss of autonomy. Gait analysis has previously been validated in the identification of motor phenotypes in mild cognitive impairment [1]. We hypothesized that gait analysis under dual-task conditions in elderly patients with gait disorders might allow the identification of motor phenotypes linked to specific brain abnormalities. MATERIAL/PATIENTS AND METHODS: An observational study was instructed for elderly patients with gait disorders or memory impairment...

OBJECTIVE: Tuberculous spondylitis, or Pott's disease, is a public health problem in Tunisia, where it occurs as an endemic disease. It is the most common and most severe articular bone tuberculosis. It is responsible for a major handicap because of its location and its destructive nature. This work aims to assess the contribution of rehabilitation for patients with Pott's disease. MATERIAL/PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study that included 29 patients with Pott's disease and hospitalized in PMR Service...

OBJECTIVE: Psychosocial factors appear increasingly decisive in functional disability related to chronic low-back pain. Catastrophizing and kinesiophobia lead to deconditioning and the perpetuation of pain. The purpose of this study is to evaluate fear, beliefs, catastrophizing and kinesiophobia in chronic low-back pain patients about to begin a training programme in a rehabilitation centre. MATERIAL/PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective study conducted in the department of physical and rehabilitation medicine in the Military Tunis hospital between March and June 2015, concerning patients followed for chronic low-back pain...

OBJECTIVE: Determine the prevalence of non specific LBP in children and adolescents and identify factors directly associated with LBP, which will allow us to establish a program to prevent non specific LBP in childhood. MATERIAL/PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted an analytical cross-sectional study about 444 students, 201 boys and 243 girls, with average age of 14.95 years. Evaluation includes anthropometric assessment, extensibility of sub pelvic muscles and the endurance of back muscles and quadriceps with spine examination...

OBJECTIVE: To analyse the characteristic of back pain in schooled adolescents in the municipality of Cotonou. MATERIAL/PATIENTS AND METHODS: This is a prospective descriptive and analytic study of 334 schooled adolescents in the municipality of Cotonou from March 30 to June 30, 2015. RESULTS: The mean age of the adolescents was 16.96±0.18 years with a female predominance of 55.98% (sex ratio=0.71). Back pain was founded in 42.51% of respondents...
