Reliability of standardized ultrasound measurements of quadriceps muscle thickness in neurological critically ill patients: a comparison to computed tomography measures.
Charline Tourel, Laetitia Burnol, Julien Lanoiselé, Serge Molliex, Magalie Viallon, Pierre Croisille, Jerome Morel
Objective: Muscle atrophy is frequent in critically ill patients and is associated with increased mortality and long-lasting alteration in quality of life. Muscle ultrasound has not been clearly validated in intensive care unit patients. The aim of this study was to compare the level of agreement between ultrasound and computed tomography scan for the measurement of quadriceps muscle thickness. D ...
AbobotulinumtoxinA and rehabilitation vs rehabilitation alone in post-stroke spasticity: An cost-utility analysis
Carlo Lazzaro, Alessio Baricich, Alessandro Picelli, Patrizia Maria Caglioni, Marco Ratti, Andrea Santamato
Objective: To investigate costs and quality-adjusted life years of rehabilitation combined with abobotulinumtoxinA (aboBoNT-A; Dysport®) (rehab/aboBoNT-A) vs rehabilitation alone (rehab) in post-stroke spasticity in Italy. Design: Based on both Italian National Health Service and societal perspectives, a 2-year cost-utility analysis model was performed. Subject/patients: The cost-utility analys ...
Applied cognitive strategy behaviours in people with parkinson’s disease during daily activities: A cross-sectional study
Ingrid H.W.M. Sturkenboom, Melissa Therese Nott, Bastiaan R. Bloem, Christine Chapparo, Esther M. J Steultjens
Objective: To explore the use of applied cognitive strategy behaviours during performance of daily activities in people with Parkinson’s disease. Design: Quantitative cross-sectional design. Methods: A total of 190 persons living at home with non-dementing Parkinson’s disease were videotaped while performing a self-chosen activity in their natural environment. The videotaped performance was ...

Behrouz Fard, Jan H.B. Geertzen, Pieter U. Dijkstra
Objective: To report the rates of persons returning home within one year following dysvascular major amputation of the lower limb in the Netherlands, and to identify factors associated with returning home directly after hospital admission and after discharge to care facilities. Design: Retrospective cohort study. Patients: Dysvascular major amputation of the lower limb, n = 382, mean age 71. ...
Acute care models for hip fracture treatment vs post-acute rehabilitation services in older adults after hip fracture: A comparative claims data analysis from Germany
Clemens Becker, Kilian Rapp, Dietrich Rothenbacher, Claudia Schulz, Hans-Helmut König, Gisela Büchele
Objective: Acute geriatric care (geriatric early rehabilitative treatment) and sub-acute (inpatient) geriatric rehabilitation are delivered to geriatric patients in Germany after hip fracture. The aim of this study was to compare patients’ outcomes after hip fracture between 3 German federal states (Hesse, Bavaria, and Baden-Wuerttemberg) that nearly exclusively offered 1 of the 2 geriatric care ...
