Patient satisfaction: an indicator of quality in disablement services centres. (1/188)

OBJECTIVES: To develop a patient satisfaction system for disablement services centres and to report on how the initial findings have been used in audit to improve their quality of care and services. DESIGN: Interview survey of randomly selected users attending in three centres: Birmingham (centre X), Oxford (centre Y), and Cambridge (centre Z) to establish core topics for developing a patient satisfaction questionnaire with incorporation into a computer patient satisfaction system (PATSAT) to enable collation of responses to the questionnaire. A pilot of the questionnaire was undertaken in the centres to assess the sensitivity of the questionnaire, which was subsequently used as part of clinical audit process during June 1991 and April 1992 in centre X and the patient satisfaction system used to monitor changes in routine practice. PATIENTS: 123 amputees in the development phase, selected by cluster sampling, and 1103 amputees in the pilot study. MAIN MEASURES: Satisfaction scores for components of the service. RESULTS: The questionnaire included 16 core topics contributing to quality of care and services, including comfort of limbs, appointments, interpersonal aspects of care, a system of support and counselling, and organisation. The pilot survey demonstrated high satisfaction scores for aspects of interpersonal care, organisation, and physical surroundings of the centres and lower satisfaction for counselling services, comfort of the limb and the number of alterations made before the limb was considered acceptable. During the audit in centre X these results prompted changes to care and services which produced significant improvements in satisfaction. CONCLUSIONS: The early results suggest that the questionnaire, coupled with PATSAT software system, enable users' views to be expressed, collated, and fed back to staff; the information provided has already prompted change, and the system is sufficiently sensitive to measure changes in satisfaction with the service.  (+info)

Stem length and canal filling in uncemented custom-made total hip arthroplasty. (2/188)

We reviewed 60 custom-made femoral components of two different lengths : 125 mm (group A) and 100 mm (group B), in order to investigate the relationship between stem length and canal filling in uncemented custom-made total hip arthroplasty. There were no statistical differences between the two groups in age, gender, height, body weight, canal flare index, or bowing angle of the femur. Postoperatively there was no statistical difference between the two groups in the proximal canal filling, but significant difference in the distal canal filling (75.5% vs 85.8% on the anteroposterior view and 76.0% vs 82.5% in the lateral view, P<0.001). The distal canal filling inversely correlated with the ratio of the proximal portion and the distal portion of the stem curvature on the lateral view (lateral curve ratio of the stem, P=0.002). We conclude that superior filling at both the proximal and the distal levels can be obtained by using 100-mm custom made components with a small lateral curve ratio.  (+info)

Computer assisted implantation of the femoral stem in THA - an experimental study. (3/188)

Fourteen femoral stems were implanted either manually by an experienced surgeon or by a robot in fresh human cadaveric femora. The neck-shaft angle, the anteversion, the length of the femoral neck and the gap between stem and bone was measured in each specimen. Implantation by robot showed higher precision in reconstructing the true anatomic situation as well as providing a better press fit.  (+info)

Planar anteversion of the acetabular cup as determined from plain anteroposterior radiographs. (4/188)

In total hip replacement, orientation of the cup is critical to the stability of the prosthesis. A new method to determine the angle of planar anteversion is described. A simple mathematical formula uses the measurements taken from anteroposterior radiographs to calculate the planar anteversion without reference to tables or charts. An experimental study in vitro has shown the efficacy of the formula in giving results which are within a clinically acceptable range.  (+info)

Extensible endoprostheses of the humerus after resection of bone tumours. (5/188)

We carried out extensible endoprosthetic replacement of the proximal or total humerus in 18 children aged between six and 12 years, after resection of primary bone tumours mainly for osteosarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma. In 11 patients we performed 44 lengthening procedures, with an average of two per child annually and a mean total extension of 29.9 mm per patient. We were able to achieve lengthening of the operated limb with few complications and a mean functional rating of 79.3% according to the Enneking system. Progressive lengthening of these prostheses does not adversely affect the overall function of the arm, and superior subluxation of the head of the prosthesis has not been a problem.  (+info)

A prospective study of changes in aneurysm and graft length after endovascular exclusion of AAA using balloon and self-expanding endograft systems. (6/188)

PURPOSE: Longitudinal shrinkage of aneurysms post-endovascular repair, employing unvalidated measurement techniques has been held to account for endograft disruption. In this study we record changes in aneurysm length, diameter and volume using the gold standard of calibrated spiral CT angiography (SCTA). METHOD: From 179 patients with AAA scanned by SCTA, 68 were selected for endografting. Twenty-seven had PTFE home-made prostheses while 41 patients had Talent endografts. SCTA was performed on the fifth postoperative day and 6-monthly intervals thereafter. The distance between the lowest renal artery and the aortic bifurcation (VBL - vertical body length) and the luminal centre line length (LCL) were measured. Maximal sac diameters and volumes were recorded using 3DCT reconstruction. RESULTS: Significant increase was noted in VBL (3.2) mm for PTFE-treated patients accompanied by an increase in sac volume at day 5 (12.5 ml). No changes in LCL or maximal diameters were evident. At 1.5 years further lengthening of both VBL (6.4 mm) and LCL (9.3 mm) was unaccompanied by sac diameter/volume changes. Talent patients - no changes in VBL or LCL were evident. Volumes and maximal AP and transverse diameters showed marked shrinkage: AP -11. 2 mm; transverse -2.6 mm; volumes by -35.5 ml at 6 months. CONCLUSION: With PTFE increase in VBL but not graft length, without concurrent changes in maximal diameters at day 5, is commensurate with increase in sac volume; after 1.5 years graft lengthening overtakes aortic lengthening. In Talent patients VBL/graft length remained unchanged. There is no evidence for longitudinal aneurysmal contracture. Volumes and maximal diameters for the Talent endograft but not for PTFE show shrinkage.  (+info)

Hemodynamic and clinical impact of prosthesis-patient mismatch in the aortic valve position and its prevention. (7/188)

Prosthesis-patient mismatch is present when the effective orifice area of the inserted prosthetic valve is less than that of a normal human valve. This is a frequent problem in patients undergoing aortic valve replacement, and its main hemodynamic consequence is the generation of high transvalvular gradients through normally functioning prosthetic valves. The purposes of this report are to present an update on the concept of aortic prosthesis-patient mismatch and to review the present knowledge with regard to its impact on hemodynamic status, functional capacity, morbidity and mortality. Also, we propose a simple approach for the prevention and clinical management of this phenomenon because it can be largely avoided if certain simple factors are taken into consideration before the operation.  (+info)

Prosthesis-patient mismatch affects survival after aortic valve replacement. (8/188)

BACKGROUND: Surgeons traditionally avoid the use of "small" aortic prostheses because of the potential for residual left ventricular outflow tract obstruction and persistent transvalvular gradients. This study examines the ratio between prosthetic valve size and the body surface area (BSA) of patients undergoing aortic valve replacement (AVR). We sought to determine the effect of potential "prosthesis-patient" mismatch on long-term survival. METHODS AND RESULTS: Follow-up was conducted on 2981 patients who underwent AVR with stented bioprostheses between 1976 and 1996. To account for differences between manufacturers' labeled valve sizes, we calculated the ratio between the prosthetic valve effective orifice area (EOA) and the patient's BSA (recorded for 2154 patients). The lowest decile in this cohort had a calculated EOA/BSA of <0.75 cm(2)/m(2) (Small group, n=227) compared with the control group (n=1927), in whom the EOA/BSA ratio was >0.75 cm(2)/m(2). Operative mortality was higher in the Small group (8% versus 5%, P:=0.03). Actuarial survival at 12 years was 50+/-5% in the Small group compared with 49+/-2% in the control group (P:=0.27). However, freedom from valve-related mortality was significantly lower in the Small group (75+/-5% versus 84+/-2%, P:=0.004). Cox regression analysis determined age and NYHA functional class to be the multivariate predictors of overall mortality, whereas advanced age and EOA/BSA <0.75 cm(2)/m(2) were found to be the predictors of valve-related mortality. CONCLUSIONS: Prosthesis-patient mismatch results in significantly higher early and late mortality after bioprosthetic AVR. We recommend careful selection of stented bioprostheses to ensure an adequate ratio of EOA to BSA. An EOA/BSA ratio of >0.75 cm(2)/m(2) may avoid residual left ventricular outflow tract obstruction and persistent transvalvular gradients. Careful prosthesis-patient matching will improve both early and late survival after AVR.  (+info)

Critical to the longevity of an implant is the surgeons ability to restore the mechanical axis while balancing the flexion and extension gaps. Most surgeons accomplish this goal through a combination of measured resection and gap-balancing techniques, with the assistance of intramedullary and extramedullary guides.. Experience has shown that an optimal window exists with respect to the mechanical axis, and that outliers are prone to fail at an accelerated rate [1]. Additionally, better alignment is correlated with faster rehabilitation and better outcomes [2,3].. In an effort to limit the number of outliers, patient-specific instrumentation was developed. Using preoperative CT or MRI imaging to determine each particular patients mechanical axis, patient-specific instrumentation aims to improve the predictability and ease of component insertion. This technique has been shown to improve alignment and assist in component sizing [4-8] while providing the added benefits of decreased operative ...
Author(s): Jamali, Amir A. | Abstract: Analysis of deformity and subsequent correction are the basis for many orthopaedic surgical procedures. In advanced cases of joint degeneration, arthroplasty may be the only available treatment option. Until recently, these analyses and preoperative surgical plans have been performed using standard radiographs, tracing paper, and/or plastic overlays. Numerous customized, commercially available, computer-based preoperative planning software programs have been introduced. The purposes of this study were to describe (1) the techniques used in deformity analysis and preoperative surgical planning using standard radiographs for joint arthroplasty and corrective osteotomies of the extremities, (2) the use of computed tomography (CT) scans to analyze rotational deformities in the presence and absence of joint prostheses and in planning corrective rotational osteotomies or revision joint replacement, and (3) the techniques for analyzing angular deformities of the spine.
Inherently consistent with the concept of VP-PM is that it should be identified by a parameter taking into account both the expected hemodynamic performance of the prosthesis and the cardiac output requirements of the patient, which at rest are largely related to body size (1). Indeed, it is the extent of the mismatch between these 2 variables that determines the eventual consequences that may be associated with high post-operative gradients. Hence, a prosthesis that might be adequate for a small patient (e.g., a child) might become obstructive for a large patient (e.g., a tall patient with a body surface area ,2.0 m2), and, therefore, the only parameter that has proven to be consistently and realistically useful for this purpose is the indexed effective orifice area (EOAi). As pointed out by Daneshvar and Rahimtoola (2), there are nonetheless many caveats to be emphasized with regard to this measurement. First, the hemodynamic performance of the prosthesis is determined by the effective orifice ...

Reoperative aortic valve replacement (AVR) is associated with increased mortality compared with initial surgery, and a smaller valve might be implanted during repeat AVR (re-AVR; AVR after prior AVR). We describe the clinical outcomes and incidence of prosthesis-patient mismatches (PPM) after reoperative AVR. Among 113 patients who underwent reoperative AVR between 2007 and 2018, 44 underwent re-AVR and 69 underwent a first replacement of a diseased natural valve after any cardiac surgery except AVR (primary AVR). We then compared early and late outcomes, the impact of re-AVR on the effective orifice areas (EOA), and the incidence and influence of PPM on reoperative AVR. Hospital mortality was 2.7%, and the overall 1-, 3-, and 5-year survival rates were 95, 91 and 86%, respectively. The reference EOA of the newly implanted valve was smaller than that of the previous valve (1.4 ± 0.3 vs. 1.6 ± 0.3 cm2, p | 0.01). The mean pressure gradient was greater (15.2 ± 6.4 vs. 12.7 ± 6.2 mmHg, p = 0.04) and

Assessment of outcome of hearing aid fitting in children should contain several dimensions: audibility, speech recognition, subjective benefit and speech production. Audibility may be: determined by means of aided hearing thresholds or real-ear measurements. For determining speech recognition, methods different from those used for adult patients must be used, especially for children with congenital hearing loss. In these children the development of the spoken language and vocabulary has to be considered, especially when testing speech recognition but also with regard to speech production. Subjective assessment of benefit to a large extent has to rely on the assessment by parents and teachers for children younger than school age. However, several studies have shown that children from the age of around 7 years can usually produce reliable responses in this respect. Speech production has to be assessed in terms of intelligibility by others, who may or may not be used to the individual childs ...

Today, Ill again be using a new data set that can be found here at my website (called leagueoutcomes.csv). The data set includes the standings results of the 2009 season for MLB along with average game attendance by team. Ill use this to go over some basic regression techniques and tools in R. Hopefully this tutorial will help those with some more statistical background. Those looking to use fun data to learn things like Logistic Regression, Probits, and Non-Parametric smoothing methods should use this to get acquainted with the R fitting procedure and come back later for those tutorials.Before doing any analysis, its always a good idea to look at the data and make sure what were doing makes sense. For this, we can create histograms and summarize the data in order to look at the distribution (standard regression assumes normal data, but for our purposes I wont worry too much about this here). Lets load the data and check out some properties of it. All of the code should be familiar from previous
One way to ensure this is to make sure you have coded up all of the things you do to fit the model, even tinkering. This way, when you run the process repeatedly, say via cross-validation, you are keeping things consistent between runs. This ensures that all of the potential sources of variation are captured by the cross-validation process.. The other vitally important thing is to ensure that you have a representative sample, in both data sets. If your data set is not representative of the kind of data you expect to be using to predict, then there is not much that you can do. All modelling rests on an assumption that induction works - the things we havent observed behave like the things we have observed.. As a general rule, stay away from complex model fitting procedures unless (i) you know what you are doing, and (ii) you have tried the simpler methods, and found that they dont work, and how the complex method fixes the problems with the simple method. Simple and complex are meant in ...
Certain weakness of this equation is fitting procedure - though there are apparently only 2 straight line parameters (m ln(K12) and m or m ln(K12) and r12) one of the remaing parameters must always be included in fitted variables (r12 or m, respectively) in fitted line x,y-data.

In the past decade, advances in upper limb socket design and technology have been proposed to increase comfort and decrease perceived weight of the prosthesis. There have been no scientific studies to date that have evaluated the benefits of these designs, and thus no evidence to support use of one type of prosthetic socket design over another. Thus, the overall purpose of this pilot study was to conduct a head-to-head comparison of two designs for transhumeral level upper limb prosthetic sockets: a traditional socket design and a socket design hypothesized to provide greater skeletal stabilization ...

Envision a hearing aid fitting in which the patients audiogram is entered into the computer, the hearing aids are inserted into the patients ears, and, with the push of a button, the hearing aids are adjusted for the patients hearing loss. Youre done! Now you can spend the remainder of the appointment developing a rapport with the patient, counseling on communication techniques, and explaining the use and care of the new devices.. At first glance this might seem appealing, but we must remember that the typical goal of any hearing aid fitting is to achieve acceptable audibility for speech. Despite the sophistication of modern fitting software, initial-fit algorithms, also known as first-fit algorithms, are unable to guarantee appropriate audibility. Thus, it is inappropriate to rely exclusively on the fitting software.1-3. ...while not a complete substitute for traditional real-ear measurement, Integrated Real-Ear Measurement offers a significant benefit to patients... .

Prosthesis-patient Mismatch (PPM) is not uncommon with an incidence reported up to 70% after aortic valve (AV) replacement. Severe forms of PPM are less common (up to 20%); PPM can lead to increased short- and long-term morbidity and mortality. It is important to discriminate PPM from other forms of prosthetic valve dysfunction. Sometimes, prosthetic valve degenerative disease may coexist with PPM. Echocardiography plays an important role in the prevention and diagnosis of PPM. Preemptive strategies to prevent PPM include insertion of newer generation prosthetic valves with better hemodynamic characteristics, stentless prosthesis, aortic root enlargement to insert a larger prosthesis, aortic homograft, and transcutaneous AV implantation ...

METHODS: Subjects reporting to a contact lens clinic of a tertiary eye-care centre in India from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2014, with a minimum of five years of lens wear, were included in the study ...

Abstract: For every discrete or continuous location-scale family having a square-integrable density, there is a unique continuous probability distribution on the unit interval that is determined by the density-quantile composition introduced by Parzen in 1979. These probability density quantiles (pdQs) only differ in shape, and can be usefully compared with the Hellinger distance or Kullback-Leibler divergences. Convergent empirical estimates of these pdQs are provided, which leads to a robust global fitting procedure of shape families to data. Asymmetry can be measured in terms of distance or divergence of pdQs from the symmetric class. Further, a precise classification of shapes by tail behavior can be defined simply in terms of pdQ boundary derivatives ...
210). Visual inspection of empirical. cross-sectional data in 2003 and 2009 shows no obvious decreasing trend between 2003 and 2009, and especially in cross-sectional data of 2009, no significant difference for the human body burdens in pools of different age groups, except for the youngest cohort that is likely exposed by breastfeeding (see Supplementary material, Fig. S1-n). The modeled intrinsic elimination half-life for p,p′-DDT is about 115 years, which is much longer than that estimated by Ritter et al. (2009). However, the intrinsic elimination half-life could be unresolvable by our model fitting procedure because of ongoing low-level exposure to fresh DDT, which was also indicated by our modeled intake trend of p,p′-DDT showing an almost unchanged intake levels (see Supplementary material, Fig. S1-n). Mueller et al. (2008) speculated that the decline in DDT contamination in human milk in Australia slowed after the 1980s due selleck to new selleck screening library input via long ...
