OBJECTIVE: Quality of life (QOL), sexual satisfaction (SS) and physical performance have been assessed in the management of numerous chronic diseases. METHODS: In this study, the following tests and surveys were applied: (i) QOL questionnaire [Cystic Fibrosis Questionnaire (CFQ)]; (ii) SS questionnaire (SSQ) [female sexual quotient (FSQ) and male sexual quotient (MSQ)]; (iii) 6-minute walk test (6MWT). Spearman's correlation was used for comparison between the data; the Mann-Whitney test was applied to analyze the difference between genders...

BACKGROUND: Patients with heart failure (HF) should exercise at 40%-60% heart rate reserve (HRR) during the first 3 weeks of an outpatient cardiac rehabilitation (CR) program and at 50%-80% HRR thereafter. Arbitrary methods to prescribe exercise intensity such as resting HR (RHR) plus 20 or 30 beats per minute (bpm) (RHR + 20 or RHR + 30) are recommended for inpatients after a myocardial infarction or those recovering from heart surgery. This approach has been repurposed by outpatient CR programs to prescribe exercise intensity for patients with HF, yet its efficacy has not been evaluated...

QUESTION: Does inspiratory muscle training improve respiratory muscle strength, functional capacity, lung function and quality of life of patients with chronic kidney disease? Does inspiratory muscle training improve these outcomes more than breathing exercises? DESIGN: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised trials. PARTICIPANTS: People with chronic kidney disease undergoing dialysis treatment. OUTCOME MEASURES: The primary outcomes were: maximal inspiratory pressure, maximal expiratory pressure, and distance covered on the 6-minute walk test...

To examine the functional effects of walking retraining at faster than self-selected speed (SSS). Ten individuals with chronic stroke participated in a 4-week training over a treadmill at walking speeds 40% faster than SSS, three times per week, 30 min/session. Outcome measures assessed before, after, and 2 months after the end of intervention were the Timed Up and Go, the 6-Minute Walk, the 10-Meter Walk test, the Modified Ashworth Scale, SSS, and fastest comfortable speed. After 4 weeks of training, all outcome measures showed clinically meaningful and statistically significant improvements (P<0...

CONTEXT: The hybrid assistive limb (HAL) (the wearable robot) can assist kinesis during voluntary control of hip and knee joint motion by detecting the wearer's bioelectric signals on the surface of their skin. The purpose of this study was to report on walking ability following the wearable robot treatment in a patient with chronic myelopathy after surgery for cervical ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL). FINDINGS: The patient was a 66-year-old woman with cervical OPLL who was able to ambulate independently with the aid of bilateral crutches...

PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of comorbidities as potential predictors of the response to pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). METHODS: The study included 165 patients with COPD with exercise limitations. Comorbidity was classified as cardiac, metabolic, orthopedic, behavioral health problems, or other diseases. Number of comorbidities was grouped as 0, 1, or ≥2. Outcomes were defined as improvement in exercise capacity (maximal exercise capacity, 6-minute walk test, and constant workload cycle exercise duration) and quality of life (Chronic Respiratory Questionnaire)...

Importance: Research shows that resveratrol, a sirtuin activator in red wine, improves exercise endurance and skeletal-muscle oxidative metabolism in animals and may enhance vascular function in humans. Resveratrol supplement sales exceed $30 million annually in the United States, but few data are available regarding its efficacy in humans. Objective: To determine whether resveratrol, 125 mg/d or 500 mg/d, improves the 6-minute walk performance in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD)...

Introduction.:  Post-laminectomy syndrome (PLS) patients who have previously undergone spinal cord stimulation and failed to have significant improvement create a unique challenge for ongoing pain management. We hypothesize that, following successful completion of intensive, interdisciplinary pain rehabilitation (IPR), this patient population can achieve a significant reduction in pain, improvement in mood, functional levels, and self-efficacy. Materials and methods...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to evaluate health-related quality of life (QOL), dyspnea and functional exercise capacity during the year following the diagnosis of a first episode of pulmonary embolism. METHODS: Prospective multicenter cohort study of 100 patients with acute pulmonary embolism recruited at 5 Canadian hospitals from 2010-2013. We measured the outcomes QOL (by SF-36 and PEmb-QOL measures), dyspnea (by the University of California San Diego Shortness of Breath Questionnaire (SOBQ)) and six-minute walk distance at Baseline, 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after acute pulmonary embolism...

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a fatal disease although significant improvements in treatment are achieved. Easily implemented and noninvasive prognostic techniques are needed while following-up these patients. The aim was to investigate the role of fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) in follow-up for patients with PH. In this longitudinal study, patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and chronic thromboembolic PH (CTEPH) who were seen in PH Outpatient Clinic, Istanbul Faculty of Medicine, Istanbul University, were enrolled in the study...

BACKGROUND: Clinical Gait Analysis is commonly used to evaluate specific gait characteristics of patients affected by Multiple Sclerosis. The aim of this report is to present a retrospective cross-sectional analysis of the changes in Clinical Gait Analysis parameters in patients affected by Multiple Sclerosis. METHODS: In this study a sample of 51 patients with different levels of disability (Expanded Disability Status Scale 2-6.5) was analyzed. We extracted a set of 52 parameters from the Clinical Gait Analysis of each patient and used statistical analysis and linear regression to assess differences among several groups of subjects stratified according to the Expanded Disability Status Scale and 6-Minutes Walking Test...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the study was to assess the effectiveness of the multi-modal exercise program (MMEP) in patients after stroke, and to identify muscles that are the best predictors of functional performance and changes in functional status in a 3-week rehabilitation program. METHODS: Thirty-one post-stroke patients (60.6±12.7 years) participating in a 3-week MMEP took part in the study. Measurements of extensor and flexor strength of the knee (Fext, Fflex) were done...

BACKGROUND: When transplanted into failing heart, autologous somatic tissue-derived cells yield functional recovery via paracrine effects that enhance native regeneration. However, the therapeutic effects are modest. We developed a method in which scaffold-free cell sheets are attached to the epicardial surface to maximize paracrine effects. This Phase I clinical trial tested whether transplanting autologous cell-sheets derived from skeletal muscle is feasible, safe, and effective for treating severe congestive heart failure...

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that combined aerobic and resistance training and non-invasive ventilatory support result in additional benefits compared with combined aerobic and resistance training alone in heart failure patients. DESIGN: A randomized, single-blind, controlled study. SETTING: Cardiac rehabilitation center. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 46 patients with New York Heart Association class II/III heart failure were randomly assigned to a 10-week program of combined aerobic and resistance training, plus non-invasive ventilatory support ( n = 23) or combined aerobic and resistance training alone ( n = 23)...

BACKGROUND: In-depth analyses of the measurement properties of the 6-minute walk test (6MWT) in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) are lacking. We investigated the reliability, construct validity, and determinants of the distance covered in the 6MWT (6MWD) in CHF patients. METHODS: 337 patients were studied (median age 65years, 70% male, ejection fraction 35%). Participants performed two 6MWTs on subsequent days. Demographics, anthropometrics, clinical data, ejection fraction, maximal exercise capacity, body composition, lung function, and symptoms of anxiety and depression were also assessed...
