BACKGROUND: The Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) is being used to assess outcomes in many patient populations despite limited validation. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) and Simple Shoulder Test (SST) scores and PROMIS Physical Function (PF) and Upper Extremity (UE) function scores collected preoperatively in patients undergoing rotator cuff repair. METHODS: This cross-sectional study analyzed 164 consecutive patients undergoing arthroscopic rotator cuff repair...

PURPOSE: The Patient-Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS®) is a National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded initiative to develop reliable, valid, and normed item banks to measure health. We describe the first large-scale translation and cross-cultural adaptation effort to German and Spanish of eight pediatric PROMIS item banks: Physical activity (PAC), subjective well-being (SWB), experiences of stress (EOS), and family relations (FAM). METHODS: We utilized methods outlined in the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) PRO Translation Task Force recommendations...

Background: PROMIS (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System) scores in patients undergoing anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction have not been fully described in the literature to date. The ability of preoperative patient-reported outcome scores to directly predict postoperative outcomes in patients who undergo primary ACL reconstruction is unknown. Hypothesis: Postoperative PROMIS physical function (PF), pain interference (PI), and depression (D) scores in patients who undergo ACL reconstruction will show improvement when compared with preoperative scores...

BACKGROUND: Adolescent e-cigarette use (i.e., "vaping") likely confers risk for developing nicotine dependence. However, there have been no studies assessing e-cigarette nicotine dependence in youth. We evaluated the psychometric properties of the 4-item Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System Nicotine Dependence Item Bank for E-cigarettes (PROMIS-E) for assessing youth e-cigarette nicotine dependence and examined risk factors for experiencing stronger dependence symptoms...

Painful extensor carpi ulnaris tendon instability has various treatments with limited available outcome data. We treated 12 wrists of 11 patients (including eight collegiate or professional athletes) with dorsal transposition of the extensor carpi ulnaris tendon to lie over the 5th compartment, stabilized with a retinacular sling from 2010-2015. All patients had symptom resolution and returned to sport at the pre-injury level by 3 months after surgery. Mean post-surgical Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) upper extremity score was 56, and PROMIS pain interference score was 42...

OBJECTIVES: A pilot study showed that an internet-based self-management program improves self-efficacy in systemic sclerosis (SSc). The objective of the present study was to compare the internet-based self-management program to an educational book developed for people with SSc in measures of self-efficacy and other patient-reported outcomes. METHODS: A 16-week randomized, controlled trial. RESULTS: Of the 267 participants who completed baseline questionnaires and were randomized to the intervention (internet) or control (book) condition, 123 (93%) in the internet and 124 (94%) in the control completed the 16-week RCT...

OBJECTIVES: To compare outcomes and costs between locking and nonlocking constructs in the treatment of bicondylar tibial plateau (BTP) fractures. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: Level 1 academic trauma center. PATIENTS: All patients that presented with complete articular, BTP fractures (AO/OTA 41-C and Schatzker 6) between 2013-2015 were screened (n=112). Patients treated with a mode of fixation other than plate-and-screw were excluded...

PURPOSE: To examine how mental health measures, sleep, and physical function are associated with presence and type of urinary incontinence (UI) and severity in women seeking treatment for lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). METHODS: This is a baseline cross-sectional analysis in treatment-seeking women with LUTS. All participants completed the LUTS Tool, which was used to classify women based on UI symptoms and measure severity. Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) questionnaires for depression, anxiety, sleep disturbance, and physical function; the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS); and the International Physical Activity Questionnaire Short Form (IPAQ-SF) were administered...

PURPOSE: To compare the predictive validity of two self-reported outcome measures, the Patient-Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Global Health measure and the 12-item Health Survey (SF-12). METHODS: Data were obtained from 1286 persons (55% female) aged 61-77 responding to a longitudinal survey. Inter-correlations of the SF-12 and PROMIS physical and mental summary scores were examined. ROC and AUC analyses were conducted to compare mental health score sensitivity to high levels of depression symptoms...

PURPOSE: Patients with obstructing ureteral stones typically experience sudden onset, severe pain. We examine the National Institutes of Health's Patient Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS®) pain instruments in patients with acute ureteral stones. METHODS: PROMIS® pain measures were obtained from a complete cohort of patients presenting to a subspecialty kidney stone clinic after discharge from emergency department (ED). Patients were followed longitudinally through course of care...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the reliability and validity of the PROMIS Pediatric Global Health scale, a 7-item measure of perceived physical, mental, and social health, in children with asthma. METHODS: From February 2014 to February 2015, convenience samples of children 8-17 years-old (n = 182) and parents of children 5-17 years-old (n = 328) visiting an emergency department for treatment of asthma were enrolled. The Asthma Control Test was used to characterize children as controlled versus not controlled, and the PROMIS Asthma Impact Scale was used to assess the effects of asthma symptoms on functional status...

Importance: Cognitive dysfunction (CD) is recognized by the American Cancer Society as a treatment effect in head and neck cancer, but the extent of this problem at baseline in oropharyngeal cancer (OPC), the most common subsite in current practice, to our knowledge has never been studied. Objective: To assess the baseline cognition of patients with OPC using National Institutes of Health (NIH)-sponsored instruments of Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) and NIH Toolbox Cognitive Battery (NIHTB-CB)...

BACKGROUND: The aim of our study was to evaluate the change in Patient reported outcome measurement information system (PROMIS) scores at baseline, 3 months and 12 months post procedure and correlate with legacy measures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed patients in 3 cohorts: lumbar, cervical and the pooled cohort from our database, 2014-2017. Outcome variables were PROMIS items of pain interference, emotional distress and physical function, EuroQol five dimensions (EQ-5D), Visual analogue scale (EQ VAS), Oswestry/Neck Disability Index (ODI/ND), back, leg/neck and arm pain scales and Patient Satisfaction Index (PSI)...
