BACKGROUND: Growing numbers of allogeneic stem cell transplants (HSCT) and improved post-transplant care have led to an increase of individuals with chronic graft versus host disease (cGVHD). Although cGVHD leads to functional impairment for many, there is limited literature regarding the benefits of acute inpatient rehabilitation for cGVHD patients. OBJECTIVE: To assess Functional Independence Measure (FIM) outcomes of cGVHD patients during acute inpatient rehabilitation, and to compare inpatient rehabilitation outcomes to burn patients, a rehabilitation patient population with similar co-morbidities...

The incidence of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in older adults is increasing. As the expected life expectancy increases, there is a heightened need for comprehensive rehabilitation for this population. Elderly patients with TBI benefit from rehabilitation interventions at all stages of injury and can achieve functional gains during acute inpatient rehabilitation. Clinicians should be vigilant of unique characteristics of this population during inpatient rehabilitation, including vulnerability to polypharmacy, posttraumatic hydrocephalus, neuropsychiatric sequelae, sleep disturbances, and sensory deficits...

As it is the case globally, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) make up the most frequent cause of death in Turkey also. Due to this fact, cardiac rehabilitation (CR) has gained a highly important role in the treatment of coronary artery diseases. In Turkey, mortality and morbidity rates among the elderly patients are significantly high. Disability due to coronary artery diseases is more frequent in the elderly compared to young patients. So, it is clear that CR has a considerable importance in this special group of patients...
