Purpose Nephrolithiasis contributes significantly to the world-wide health care burden. Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are widely recognized as important outcome measures for patient-centered care. We sought to summarize what is currently known about PROMs in urinary stone disease and to characterize use of PROMs in randomized controlled trials (RCTs) for nephrolithiasis. Materials and Methods Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in patients with nephrolithiasis is reviewed. A search of both MEDLINE and EMBASE databases for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in nephrolithiasis was performed to assess utilization of PROMs in these trials...

Thallium (Tl) is a well-recognized hazardous toxic heavy metal that has been reported to have embryotoxicity and fetotoxicity. However, little is known about its association with preterm birth (PTB) in humans. We aimed to evaluate the predictors of Tl exposure and assessed its relation with PTB. The study population included 7173 mother-infant pairs from a birth cohort in Wuhan, China. Predictors of Tl concentrations were explored using linear regression analyses, and associations of Tl exposure with risk of PTB or gestational age at birth were estimated using logistic regression or generalized linear models...

BACKGROUND: Pressure garment therapy (PGT) is an established treatment for the prevention and treatment of hypertrophic scarring; however, there is limited evidence for its effectiveness. Burn survivors often experience multiple issues many of which are not adequately captured in current PGT trial measures. To assess the effectiveness of PGT it is important to understand what outcomes matter to patients and to consider whether patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) can be used to ascertain the effect of treatments on patients' health-related quality of life...

AIM: Iatrogenic premature rupture of membrane (PROM) is one of the major complications related to fetoscopic laser photocoagulation (FLP) for twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS). However, amniotic fluid leakage (AFL) sometimes spontaneously disappears. This study evaluated the incidence and clinical characteristics of transient AFL after FLP. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed pregnancies that underwent FLP for TTTS at a single center. Patients with apparent AFL within 2 weeks after FLP were divided into two groups: transient AFL, defined by the disappearance of fluid leakage within a week; and PROM, if AFL persisted continuously for more than a week or premature birth occurred, including miscarriage, within a week of the first symptom of AFL...

PURPOSE: In the foot and ankle literature, a wide range of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) is used, however, consensus as to which PROMs are preferred is lacking. Selection of a PROM is among other reasons, often based on measurement properties without considering the methodological quality of the studies that evaluate these measurement properties. The aim of current study was first to identify the most frequently used foot and ankle-specific PROMs in recent orthopaedic foot and ankle literature, and second to conduct a systematic review to synthesize and critically appraise the measurement properties of these PROMS...

Patients at the center of care is often the stated focus of clinicians and healthcare services. The quality and safety movement has shown that effective organization of care is needed, in addition to professional skills. This movement has provided professionals and others with methods to improve both organization and practice for patients. These methods include measurement to give those carrying out improvement feedback about the effects of their changes. New types of measures that enable patients to report treatment outcomes can now be use in quality improvement and quality reporting to bring a renewed focus on making care more patient-centered...

BACKGROUND: Patient-reported outcome performance measures (PRO-PMs) incorporate outcomes from the patient's perspective into performance measures and may have great potential to impact health care. The various patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) used to assess the same outcome challenge widespread use of PRO-PMs. A potential solution is to statistically link PROMs to provide equivalent PRO-PM conclusions to be drawn regardless of which PROM was used. OBJECTIVES: To determine the level of agreement in the performance of two depression-related PRO-PMs assessed using the nine-item Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) depression scale and the eight-item Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Depression short form and the PHQ-9 cocalibrated on the PROMIS metric...

INTRODUCTION: Meta-analyses of clinical trials often provide sufficient information for decision-makers to evaluate whether chance can explain apparent differences between interventions. Interpretation of the magnitude and importance of treatment effects beyond statistical significance can, however, be challenging, particularly for patient-reported outcomes (PROs) measured using questionnaires with which clinicians have limited familiarity. The objectives of our study are to systematically evaluate Cochrane systematic review authors' approaches to calculation, reporting and interpretation of pooled estimates of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) in meta-analyses...
