BACKGROUND: The clinical significance and management of preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) remains a topic of a controversy. Although PROM is associated with a low rate of complications, PPROM may lead to significant neonatal and maternal morbidity. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study of 714 women who presented to Jiangsu Province Hospital with third trimester PPROM or PROM between January and December 2015. The data were analyzed by SPSS; the significance of maternal characteristics, and maternal and neonatal outcomes were tested using Student's t test and the χ(2) test...

In spite of the increasing interest in palliative care for heart disease, data on the detailed methods of palliative care and its efficacy specifically in heart disease are still lacking. A structured PubMed literature review revealed no quality indicators of palliative care in heart disease. Therefore, we performed a narrative overview of the potential quality indicators in heart disease by reviewing previous literature concerning quality indicators in cancer patients. We summarize seven potential categories of quality indicators in heart disease: (1) presence and availability of a palliative care unit, palliative care team, and outpatient palliative care; (2) human resources such as number of skilled staff; (3) infrastructure; (4) presence and frequency of documentation or family survey; (5) patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) data and disease-specific patient quality of life such as The Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire (KCCQ); (6) questionnaires and interviews about the quality of palliative care after death, including bereaved family surveys; and (7) admission-related outcomes such as place of death and intensive care unit length of stay...

AIM: The aim of this study was to determine accuracy and response time of duo of insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1)/alpha-fetoprotein (Amnioquick duo+) versus placental alpha-microglobulin-1 (PAMG-1) in diagnosing premature rupture of membranes (PROM). METHODS: A multicenter prospective study was conducted among women with features suggestive of PROM between 24 and 42 gestational weeks (GW). PROM was confirmed post-delivery based on presence of any two of these criteria: delivery within 48 h to 7 days, chorioamnionitis, membranes overtly ruptured at delivery, and adverse perinatal outcomes strongly correlated with prolonged PROM...

In this study, 30 case of patients with full-term premature membrane rupture and another 30 cases of full-term delivered subject without premature rupture of membranes (PROM) were selected to explore the relationship between premature membrane rupture with matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9) and its substrate level. Results showed the plasma zinc, MMP-9 in serum and amniotic fluid increased in patients with PROM; their type IV collagen in serum and foetal membrane decreased. Increased Zinc ion concentration results in increased concentration of MMP-9, a zinc-dependent enzyme; the degradation of type IV collagen by MMP-9 might be the potential mechanism of premature rupture of membranes in full-term pregnant women...

The field of rehabilitation has increasingly called for the use of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) in research and practice. Given that many rehabilitation clients present with conditions associated with cognitive impairments, it is imperative to reduce barriers to PROM use for this population. The purpose of this paper is develop a comprehensive understanding of cognitive accessibility that can prospectively inform the design of PROMs. We put forth the following definition of cognitive accessibility for PROMs: Cognitive accessibility is present when assessment design anticipates respondent variability in cognitive abilities and, to the greatest extent possible, reduces cognitive demands and/or supports cognitive processes to enable respondents with a range of cognitive abilities to interpret and respond to assessment items as intended...

BACKGROUND: There is little known in the literature about whether preoperative patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) would affect the risk of periprosthetic fractures (PPFs) after primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Our study aims to evaluate the predictive values of PROMs on PPF after primary TKA. We hypothesize that poorer PROMs are associated with a higher risk of PPF after primary TKA. METHODS: We reviewed prospectively collected data in our hospital arthroplasty registry...

OBJECTIVES: Tonsil surgery is associated with significant morbidity during recovery. Patient-reported outcome measures (PROM) are the golden standard for the planning and follow-up of delivered care, which should also be an axiom for children. The current aims were to describe self-reported postoperative recovery in children after tonsil surgery, and to compare tonsillotomy and tonsillectomy in this respect. METHODS: In total, 238 children (4-12 years old) with a history of obstructive problems and/or recurrent tonsillitis, and undergoing tonsil surgery were included...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become a commonplace procedure for the treatment of aortic stenosis in higher risk surgical patients. With the high cost and steadily increasing number of patients receiving TAVR, emphasis has been placed on optimizing outcomes as well as resource utilization. Recently, studies have demonstrated the feasibility of conscious sedation in lieu of general anesthesia for TAVR. This study aimed to investigate the clinical as well as cost outcomes associated with conscious sedation in comparison to general anesthesia in TAVR...

BACKGROUND: Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are increasingly used to quantify patients' perceptions of functional ability. The American Medical Association and NIH suggest patient materials be written at or below 6th to 8th grade reading levels, respectively, yet one recent study asserts that few PROMs comply with these recommendations, and suggests that the majority of PROMs are written at too high of a reading level for self-administered patient use. Notably, this study was limited in its use of only one readability algorithm, although there is no commonly accepted, standard readability algorithm for healthcare-related materials...

BACKGROUND: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common condition in primary care. Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are crucial in the evaluation of interventions to improve diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of UTI. The aim of this study was to identify an existing condition-specific PROM to measure symptom severity, bothersomeness and impact on daily activities for adult patients with suspected urinary tract infection in primary care; or, in the absence of such a PROM, to test items identified from existing PROMs for coverage and relevance in single and group interviews and to psychometrically validate the resulting PROM...
