Myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is a neuromuscular disorder presenting with major muscle impairments. However, few studies have addressed muscle strength progression using quantitative methods. The aims of this study were to document muscle strength changes in eight muscle groups among adults with DM1 over a 9-year period, and to compare this progression between phenotypes (adult and late-onset) and sex. Patients with a genetic diagnosis of DM1 with the late-onset or the adult phenotype were recruited at baseline through the clinical registry of the Saguenay Neuromuscular Clinic...

Background: The influence of graft type on recovery after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) has not been adequately studied in pediatric patients. Purpose: To describe lower extremity functional recovery parameters at the 6-month mark after ACLR across 3 distinct groups of skeletally immature patients: pediatric male patients with transphyseal hamstring grafts (PM-HS), pediatric female patients with transphyseal hamstring grafts (PF-HS), and pediatric male patients with extraphyseal iliotibial band grafts (PM-ITB)...

In a Turkish League Against Rheumatism (TLAR) project, evidence-based recommendations for the management of knee osteoarthritis (OA) was developed for the first time in our country in 2012 (TLAR-2012). In accordance with developing medical knowledge and scientific evidence, recommendations were updated. The committee was composed of 22 physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists (4 have rheumatology subspeciality also) and an orthopaedic surgeon. Systematic literature search were applied on Pubmed, Embase, Cochrane and Turkish Medical Index for the dates between January the 1st 2012 and January the 29th of 2015...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study is to show whether there are any changes in quality or incidence of complications in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) after establishing a centre for endoprothesis (EPZ). MATERIAL AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study comparing 100 TKAs one year before establishing an EPZ (Group I) with 100 TKAs one year after establishing an EPZ (group II). Data were collected by analysing our electronic documentation system, and the report of the rehabilitation hospital...

Background: Proper rehabilitation after matrix-associated autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI) is essential to restore a patient's normal function without overloading the repair site. Purpose: To evaluate the current literature to assess clinical outcomes of MACI in the knee based on postoperative rehabilitation protocols, namely, the time to return to full weightbearing (WB). Study Design: Systematic review; Level of evidence, 1. Methods: A systematic review was performed to locate studies of level 1 evidence comparing the outcomes of patients who underwent MACI with a 6-week, 8-week, or 10/11-week time period to return to full WB...

Cryotherapy is widely used in sports and rehabilitation to aid recovery and injury management. The purpose was to examine if a low temperature computer controlled continuous knee cooling protocol (10°C) for one hour and a moderate continuous knee cooling protocol (18°C) for one hour affected neuromuscular activity and functional performance tests. We used a randomized controlled study design. Twenty healthy male subjects (age = 24 ± 3 years) were included and randomized into 2 groups (10°C and 18°C). On day one, participants performed a maximal voluntary contraction of the quadriceps (MVC), single leg hop for distance (SLHD), and crossover hop for time (COHT) with both legs before and after cooling of their right leg...

We investigated the difference in relationship between muscle strength and quality of life (QOL)/fatigue in long-term cancer survivors and healthy subjects. Thirty-six cancer survivors and 29 healthy subjects were assessed for body composition and bone status at the calcaneus using the Osteo Sono Assessment Index. Muscle strength was evaluated via handgrip and knee extensor strength. Health-related QOL was assessed using the Medical Outcome Study 36-item Short-Form Health Survey. Fatigue was measured using the brief fatigue inventory...

Background: Patient education is an integral part of the management of osteoarthritis. The educational needs assessment tool (ENAT) was developed in the UK to help direct needs-based patient education in rheumatic diseases. Aim: The aim of the study was to adapt and validate the ENAT into Chinese, for use in severe knee osteoarthritis (KOA). Methods: This cross-cultural validation study took two phases: 1) adaptation of the ENAT into Chinese (CENAT) and 2) validation of the CENAT...

BACKGROUND: Total hip and knee replacements are common surgeries, and an optimal pain treatment is essential for early rehabilitation. Since data from randomized controlled trails on the use of regional anesthesia in joint replacements of the lower extremities are conflicting, we analyzed the international PAIN OUT registry for comparison of regional anesthesia vs. general anesthesia regarding pain and morphine consumption on the first postoperative day. METHODS: International Classification of Diseases-9 (ICD-9) codes were used to identify 2,346 cases for knee and 2,315 for hip arthroplasty between 2010 and 2016 from the PAIN OUT registry...

BACKGROUND: Gait re-education is a primary rehabilitation goal after stroke. In the last decades, robots with different mechanical structures have been extensively used in the clinical practice for gait training of stroke survivors. However, the effectiveness of robotic training is still controversial, especially for chronic subjects. In this study, we investigated the short-term effects of gait training assisted by an endpoint robot in a population of chronic stroke survivors. METHODS: Subjects were evaluated before and after training with clinical scales and instrumented gait analysis...

The aim of the study was to analyze the effect of knee compression bandage and arm swing control on the maximum horizontal distance and ground reaction force variables in standing long jump. Adult male (n=8; mean age, 22.75±1.98 years; mean heights, 1.77±0.03 m; mean weights, 71.82±12.87 kg) participated in the experiment. The results obtained from variables of ground reaction force (GRF) in medial lateral, anterior posterior (AP), vertical (V) direction, resultant GRF (RGRF), decay rate (%), and maximum horizontal distance (MHD) were as follows; MHD, AP GRF, VGRF, RGRF (AP-V), and ratio of load reduction (%) showed more effective result under both wearing of knee compression bandage and arm swing...

One of the most common injuries of the knee joint is a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Most authors believe that early rehabilitation of patients after ACL reconstruction promotes better treatment outcomes. Less is known about the influence of the time that passes from injury to surgical reconstruction. Therefore, the goal of this study was to assess the dependence of treatment outcomes of ACL on injury-to-reconstruction and reconstruction-to-rehabilitation time lags. The study included 30 patients of the mean age 34 ± 7 years with trauma-related rupture of ACL and its surgical reconstruction...

The treatment of joint contracture continues to represent a challenging problem in orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation medicine. Existing animal models of knee contracture for evaluating new treatments are mostly created by extensive joint tissue damage with Kirschner-wire immobilization which requires a second surgery to remove Kirschner-wires. This study aimed to develop a less invasive rabbit model of moderate knee contracture through a single surgery. Skeletally mature New Zealand White rabbits had their right knee operated to create surgical damage to the posterior capsule under direct visualization...

BACKGROUND: 2-6 months after successful medical rehabilitation in gonarthrosis, the positive effects remit without the implementation of adequate aftercare strategies. OBJECTIVES: A prospective comparative study aimed to investigate whether and to what extent the sustainability model of knee school for the secondary preventive treatment of occupational gonarthrosis is able to maintain positive treatment effects in the medium term. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 292 male employees from the building trade went through the three-week phase 1 of the biopsychosocial knee college with a focus on ergonomics and muscle strength training...
