OBJECTIVES: Targeting remission in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) improves health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and disability. However, the impacts of different remission criteria and durations and their frequencies are uncertain. Our observational study assessed these factors. METHODS: We recruited RA patients with disease durations <10 years, stable suppressive therapies and stable disease activity scores for 28 joints using ESR (DAS28-ESR) ≤3.2. Intermittent and sustained remisisons were classified using DAS28ESR, simple disease activity index (SDAI) and ACR/EULAR Boolean criteria...

Quitting smoking is the most important element in the therapeutic management of chronic respiratory diseases. Combining pharmacotherapy with behavioral support increases smoking cessation success rates. In addition, hospitalized smokers have increased motivation to quit. We investigated the efficacy on smoking cessation, of varenicline in combination with behavioral support, in smokers hospitalized due to (a) acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or (b) bronchial asthma attack, or (c) community-acquired pneumonia (CAP)...

INTRODUCTION: Several studies report on functional outcome after operative treatment for midshaft clavicular fractures. According to the published data not much is known about the quality of life after operative treatment. The purpose of this study is to investigate long term patient reported quality of life (QoL) and functional outcome after plating for midshaft clavicular fractures. METHODS: Patients between 16 and 65 years of age, with a midshaft clavicular fracture which were treated with plate fixation between 2006 and 2014, were included...

Background context Revision surgery represents a major event for patients undergoing ASD surgery. Previous reports suggest minimal or no impact on HRQOL outcomes. Purpose To investigate the impact of early reoperations within the first year on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and on the likelihood of reaching the MCID after ASD surgery. Design Retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data from consecutive surgically treated adult deformity surgery (ADS) patients included in a multicenter, international database...

In this study, we evaluated clinical and radiological outcomes in patients with 41.C1,41.C2,41.C3 fractures according to AO classification. We also provide a specific therapeutic algorithm for each type of fracture. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study was conducted in 43 patients who underwent surgical treatment for complex tibial plateau fractures and were followed for a minimum of 12 months...

BACKGROUND: The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health is the international standard for describing and monitoring functioning. While the categories, the units of the classification, were not designed with measurement in mind, the hierarchical structure of the classification lends itself to the possibility of summating categories into some higher order domain. Focusing on the chapters of d4 Mobility, d5 Self-Care and d6 Domestic Life, this study seeks to ascertain if qualifiers rating of categories (0-No problem to 4-Complete problem) within those chapters can be summated, and whether such derived measurement is consistent with estimates obtained from well-known instruments which purport to measure the same constructs...

Etoricoxib is a selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor, with a lower risk of gastrointestinal toxicity compared to traditional nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). We evaluated the effectiveness and tolerability of etoricoxib in extreme elderly patients with chronic pain due to osteoarthritis (OA). A prospective, single-center, single-arm study was conducted, enrolling 19 extreme elderly men with OA (mean age 85.9, range 79-96 years), who responded inadequately to NSAIDs or other analgesics...

PURPOSE: Oral cancer diagnosis and treatment could influence the well-being of patients. The aim of this study was to assess the quality of life (QOL) of oral cancer patients after their treatments. METHOD: In this descriptive-analytical study, all oral cancer patients' records were retrieved from the archives of the oral pathology departments of Isfahan dental school and Sayed-al-Shohada from 2004 to 2015. Telephone interviews were conducted to collect data using the short form 36 (SF-36) and Head and Neck (H&N35) questionnaire...

OBJECTIVES: Our aims were to (1) measure quality of life (QoL) in spinal cord injury (SCI) patients using different methods and analyze differences; (2) enable targeted treatments by identifying variables that affect QoL; and (3) provide decision-makers with useful data for cost-utility analyses in SCI population. METHODS: Seventy-one participants were enrolled. The computer-based tool UceWeb was used to elicit QoL in terms of utility coefficients, through the standard gamble, time trade-off, and rating scale methods...

Purpose Studies on ultrasound-accelerated, catheter-directed thrombolysis of acute deep vein thrombosis emphasize good patency rates and low complication rates. Therefore, we analyzed quality of life besides technical success and patency in our patients after ultrasound-accelerated, catheter-directed thrombolysis. Methods Between 2009 and 2014, 42 patients suffering from iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis received ultrasound-accelerated, catheter-directed thrombolysis. Follow-up included clinical exanimation and ultrasound...

BACKGROUND: The prognosis and survival rate of women with breast cancer have significantly improved worldwide. Effective home-based multidimensional programmes for breast cancer survivors have gained an ever greater emphasis in survivorship care to maximise women's quality of life for their successful transition to rehabilitation and normal life. It is important to summarise the best available evidence to evaluate the effects of home-based multidimensional survivorship programmes on quality of life in women within 10 years of the completion of surgery or adjuvant cancer therapy for breast cancer, or both...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To explore young women's health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and investigate whether menstrual and menarche experiences and objectification predict mental and physical health components of HRQOL. BACKGROUND: Menstruation plays a fundamental role in female biology, in women's relationship to their bodies and consequently in women's health and their HRQOL. DESIGN: Cross-sectional explorative survey design. METHOD: A questionnaire that included the SF-36v2, the Self-objectification Questionnaire (SOQ), the Body Surveillance and Body Shame subscales of the Objectified Body Consciousness Scale, the Belief and Attitudes Towards Menstruation Questionnaire (four subscales), and questions on menarche and menstruation was administered at the end of 2013 to 319 Icelandic women who represented the population by age...

PURPOSE: Higher health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in dialysis patients has been associated with fewer hospitalizations and lower mortality. Since Arab patients on dialysis have better survival rates than Jewish patients, we hypothesized that they would have higher HRQOL. We also studied the impact of several risk factors on HRQOL in each population. METHODS: Based on a national dialysis registry, patients from 64 hemodialysis units were recruited to participate...

Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is influenced by the disease state, associated complications and their management. In patients with liver cirrhosis co-morbidity, severity of liver disease and their complications are likely to affect the QOL. The aim of the study was to determine the factors that are likely to influence the domains of HRQOL using SF-36 in patients with liver cirrhosis. For the study, 149 patients with liver cirrhosis were compared with age-gender matched healthy controls for physical and mental components of SF-36 score and the effects of age, co-morbidity severity of liver disease and complications of liver cirrhosis on HRQOL were assessed using the same questionnaire...
