DESIGN: Data on patients treated by primary contact physiotherapists were collected prospectively and compared with historical and concurrent cohorts of patients treated by other clinicians, using diagnosis and urgency. PARTICIPANTS: Twenty-nine primary contact physiotherapists, working at 10 sites, treated a total of 14 452 patients with musculoskeletal conditions in triage categories 3, 4 and 5...

BACKGROUND: Since 2013 the number of suspected adverse reactions to the quadrivalent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine reported to the Danish Medicines Agency (DMA) has increased. Due to the resulting public concerns about vaccine safety, the coverage of HPV vaccinations in the childhood vaccination programme has declined. The aim of the present study was to determine health care-seeking prior to the first HPV vaccination among females who suspected adverse reactions to HPV vaccine. METHODS: In this registry-based case-control study, we included as cases vaccinated females with reports to the DMA of suspected severe adverse reactions...

BACKGROUND: Physiotherapy with exercises is generally recommended in the treatment of patients with subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS). OBJECTIVE: We aimed to investigate the use of physiotherapy in patients with SIS in Danish hospital settings as part of initial non-surgical treatment and after SIS-related surgery and to evaluate to which extent sex, socio-demographic and clinical factors predict the use of physiotherapy. METHODS: Using national health registers, we identified 57,311 patients who had a first hospital contact with a diagnosis of ICD-10, groups M75...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Several randomized controlled trials have not shown any added benefit of arthroscopy over placebo surgery or physiotherapy in middle-aged patients with knee symptoms without trauma. We studied the characteristics of the knee arthroscopies performed in southern Sweden. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From the orthopedic surgical records from 2007-2009 in the Skåne region of Sweden (with a population of 1.2 million), we retrieved ICD-10 diagnostic codes and selected all 4,096 arthroscopies that were diagnosed peroperatively with code M23...

OBJECTIVE: To determine effects of physical activity on depressive symptoms (primary objective), symptoms of schizophrenia, anthropometric measures, aerobic capacity, and quality of life (secondary objectives) in people with mental illness and explore between-study heterogeneity. DATA SOURCES: MEDLINE, Cochrane Controlled Trials Register, PsycINFO, CINAHL, Embase, and the Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro) were searched from earliest record to 2013. STUDY SELECTION: Randomized controlled trials of adults with a DSM-IV-TR, ICD-10, or clinician-confirmed diagnosis of a mental illness other than dysthymia or eating disorders were selected...

BACKGROUND: Spasticity after stroke has been internationally recognized as an important health problem causing impairment of mobility, deformity, and pain. The aim of this study was to assess the frequency of first-ever and recurrent stroke and of subsequent spastic and flaccid paresis. Factors influencing the development of spasticity were analyzed. A further major aim was to provide a "real-life" assessment of the treatment of spasticity in Germany and to discuss this in view of the treatment recommended by German and international clinical guidelines...

INTRODUCTION: In order to ensure we provided an appropriate patient focused service we undertook a prospective audit of referrals to our surgical foot and ankle department in a large District General Hospital/Treatment centre. METHODOLOGY: An audit was conducted over a 12 month period to establish the initial referral patterns to a dedicated foot and ankle service. This was undertaken by completion of a dedicated audit form, with departmentally agreed terms and domains following the International coding of diseases (ICD) system...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Diagnosis-related systems (ICD-10, OPS, PCCL) are used in acute medical care as part of the multidisciplinary classification of overall care and related costs. In contrast, such systems, reflecting therapeutic requirements and distinguishing between patients according to the level of effort and costs incurred, are still not available for use in clinical rehabilitation units. METHODS: 215 consecutive patients (aged 63.8 +/- 11.1 years; 68...

Treatment of mitochondrial disorders (MIDs) is a challenge since there is only symptomatic therapy available and since only few randomized and controlled studies have been carried out, which demonstrate an effect of some of the symptomatic or supportive measures available. Symptomatic treatment of MIDs is based on mainstay drugs, blood transfusions, hemodialysis, invasive measures, surgery, dietary measures, and physiotherapy. Drug treatment may be classified as specific (treatment of epilepsy, headache, dementia, dystonia, extrapyramidal symptoms, Parkinson syndrome, stroke-like episodes, or non-neurological manifestations), non-specific (antioxidants, electron donors/acceptors, alternative energy sources, cofactors), or restrictive (avoidance of drugs known to be toxic for mitochondrial functions)...

AIMS: Several case reports have demonstrated negative interactions between various physiotherapy modalities and cardiac rhythm devices (CRD). Fear of these potential interactions may lead to suboptimal utilization of physiotherapy treatments in CRD patients. No prior review of available guidelines, or management strategies, on the interaction between physiotherapy modalities and CRD patients has been reported. To review existing guidelines regarding the use of physiotherapy modalities in patients with pacemakers and/or implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs)...

UNLABELLED: Various pain complaints are the most frequent symptoms in depression. However neither ICD-10 nor DSM-IV do not treat the pain as an essential and vital indicator of depression. There is also lack of works which describe shown above relation. AIM: The aim of our research determines the connection between the intensity of depression symptoms and pain perception in elderly patients who are treated for pain in arthrosis of spine and arthrosis of hip. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The research was conducted in a group of 60 patients...

The caregivers of the persons affected must perform a constant and very demanding care, if they want to cope with daily life and strive for a meaningful social existence. The given situation prompted the question how professional caregivers take care of individuals with autism, who are both apraxic and aphasic...

Postpolio syndrome is defined as a clinical syndrome of new pareses in individuals who had been affected by acute paralytic poliomyelitis years before. The objective of this study was to describe neurologic and psychiatric signs of the disease. We evaluated the clinical signs and treatment of 16 patients with postpolio syndrome. Possible symptoms of depression were evaluated by the Hamilton and Geriatric Depression Scales. Postpolio syndrome manifested at a median age of 57.5 years (range 25-73) in a median of 41 years (range 16-70 years) after acute poliomyelitis...

In the management of psychogenic chest pain, the family doctor has a key role to play. His main task is to exclude physical or organic causes and identify the underlying psychogenesis--admittedly without wishing to establish a definitive (ICD-10) diagnosis. For this purpose, empathic reassurance of the patient is of major importance. Wherever possible, hospitalization of the patient for a diagnostic clarification should be avoided. Therapeutic options comprise suitable physiotherapy, psychohygienic measures, and appropriate pharmacotherapy...
