Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is an important tool to predict prognosis in children and adults with heart failure. A much less sophisticated exercise test is the 6 min walk test, which has been shown an independent predictor for morbidity and mortality in adults with heart failure. Therefore, we hypothesized that the 6 min walk test could be predictive for outcome in children with dilated cardiomyopathy. We prospectively included 49 children with dilated cardiomyopathy ≥6 years who performed a 6 min walk test...

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) require serial assessment of right and left ventricular (RV & LV) volumes and function. Because the RV is not assisted, its function is a critical determinant of the hemodynamic and contributes significantly to postoperative morbidity and mortality. We evaluated the feasibility and the accuracy of tomographic-equilibrium radionuclide ventriculography (t-ERV) for the assessment of patients with LVADs. METHODS: Twenty-four patients with LVAD underwent t-ERV...

BACKGROUND: The six-minute walk test (6MWT) is an established functional test assessing exercise capacity and is used to predict clinical prognosis in patients with chronic heart failure (HF). Tele-accelerometry is a novel approach to activity monitoring using telemedical data transfer and allows a Tele-6MWT to be performed in an outpatient setting. It offers patients the option of performing simple serial follow-up tests in their own home. AIMS: The aim of this study was to investigate the prognostic value of serial Tele-6MWTs using tele-accelerometry in patients with HF...

Congestive heart failure (HF) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Although advances in medical therapy, mechanical support and heart transplantation have been made, almost half of all patients with HF succumb to the disease within five years of the initial diagnosis. Therefore, treatment methods need to be identified to restore the structure and function of cardiac muscle. Three patients with HF caused by ischemic cardiomyopathy received human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cell (HUC-MSC) intravenous infusion were included in the present study...

OBJECTIVE: Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are common in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the BODE index is an important tool for the prognostic assessment of COPD patients. It is well known that epicardial fat thickness (EFT) is related to CVD. However, there are very few data about the relationship between EFT and BODE index. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between EFT and BODE index in patients with COPD. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We prospectively included 157 patients with COPD and 45 controls in the present study...

Multidisciplinary treatments have shown to be effective for fibromyalgia. We report detailed functional outcomes of patients with fibromyalgia who attended a 3-month Multidisciplinary treatment program. The hypothesis was that patients would have increased functional status, physical activity level, and exercise regularity after attending this program. We performed a retrospective analysis of a randomized, simple blinded clinical trial. The inclusion criteria consisted of female sex, a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, age 18-60  and 3-8 years of schooling...

BACKGROUND: Enhancement of functional ambulation is a key goal of rehabilitation for children with cerebral palsy (CP) who experience gross motor impairment. Physiotherapy (PT) approaches often involve overground and treadmill-based gait training to promote motor learning, typically as free walking or with body-weight support. Robotic-assisted gait training (RAGT), using a device such as the Lokomat(®)Pro, may permit longer training duration, faster and more variable gait speeds, and support walking pattern guidance more than overground/treadmill training to further capitalize on motor learning principles...
