TY - JOUR. T1 - Patient and surgical prognostic factors for inpatient functional recovery following THA and TKA. T2 - a prospective cohort study. AU - Hewlett-Smith, Nicola A. AU - Pope, Rodney P. AU - Hing, Wayne A. AU - Simas, Vini P. AU - Furness, James W. PY - 2020/8/27. Y1 - 2020/8/27. N2 - BACKGROUND: The introduction of enhanced recovery pathways has demonstrated both patient and organisational benefits. However, enhanced recovery pathways implemented for total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) vary between health-care organisations, as do their measures of success, particularly patient-related outcomes. Despite inpatient functional recovery being essential for safe and timely hospital discharge, there is currently no gold standard method for its assessment, and the research undertaken to establish prognostic factors is limited. This study aimed to identify prognostic factors and subsequently develop prognostic models for inpatient functional recovery following ...
In this prospective study of a large cohort of patients with primary THA, we found that after adjusting for important predictors, patients with OA had significantly better functional outcomes compared to those with RA/inflammatory arthritis at two-year follow-up. Results were notable for overall ADL limitation and key ADLs. Pain outcomes were not significantly different for OA versus RA. We also found that patients with AVN experienced better ADL outcome at two years compared to RA patients. In contrast, patients with AVN reported worse pain outcomes at five years compared to those with RA. Several findings in our study are of interest and merit further discussion.. One of the main findings of our study was that patients with OA had significantly better functional outcomes compared to those with RA at the two-year follow-up, as indicated by lower odds of overall moderate-severe ADL limitation. These findings were confirmed for patients younger and older than 65 years. To our knowledge, this is ...

Promoting post-stroke neurogenesis has long been proposed to be a therapeutic strategy for the enhancement of functional recovery after cerebral ischemic stroke. Despite numerous approaches have been widely reported the proliferation or differentiation of the neurogenic population therapeutic strategies by targeting adult neurogenesis not yet to be successfully clarified in clinical settings. Here, we hypothesized that alterations in microenvironment of the ischemic brain might impede the functional maturation of adult newly generated neurons that limits functional recovery after stroke. The in vivo retroviral based labeling model was applied to directly birth-date and trace the maturation process of adult newly generating neurons after hypoxic challenge. A rehabilitation therapy procedure was adopted through the combination of task-specific motor rehabilitating training with environmental enrichment to promote functional recovery after stroke. In addition, a pharmacological or genetic suppression of

Results Questionnaires were returned by 6,713 (64.2%) of 10,452 eligible patients of whom 4,453 were in remission after a major resection and 3,988 formed the final sample for analysis. Overall, 32.9% of respondents reported perfect HRQL (no problems) whilst 67.1% reported ≥1 HRQL problem (on any EQ-5D domain). Individuals with a stoma still present were more likely to report ≥1 HRQL problem than those without a stoma (74.6% compared to 61.7%, p , 0.001). Respondents who had radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy were more likely to report ≥1 HRQL problem than those who did not. Respondents who had radiotherapy reported lower levels of bowel control: 24.8% reported good control compared to 41.6% in the no radiotherapy group (p , 0.001). Urinary dysfunction and sexual difficulties were consistently higher for those with a stoma present. For sexual difficulties, receipt of radiotherapy resulted in a higher level of difficulties (33.5% answered Quite a bit/Very much compared to 18.9% in those who ...

A combination of enriched environment and daily reaching therapy (i.e. enriched rehabilitation) enhances functional recovery following focal ischemia in rats. However, the mechanisms contributing to recovery, and potentially critical influence of timing of rehabilitation, remain unclear. -- Enriched rehabilitation is especially effective when initiated early, however the mechanisms underlying this critical time window have not been determined. Chapter 2 examined the effects of early rehabilitation on neuronal activation (FosB/∆FosB), delayed cell death (Fluoro Jade C) and inflammation (ED-1) following endothelin-1 induced focal ischemia. Enriched rehabilitation increased the activity of perilesional cortex in the early post-stroke treatment period. This increased activity likely contributes to the neuroplastic changes and functional recovery observed with extended periods of rehabilitation. Importantly, enriched environment alone did not lead to enhanced activity suggesting that task-specific ...

If you experience a stroke, you should expect some degree of spontaneous recovery in the first 6 months or so after the stroke. Recovery may continue for over a year. Your degree of recovery depends on the severity and location of the stroke. It is very difficult to predict. Many times, improvements in physical abilities occur more rapidly than in communication and cannot be used as a predictor for future speech and language improvements.. ...
One of the worries with people choosing solo recovery can be that they are suffering from terminal uniqueness. This is where the individual becomes convinced that the situation they are facing is unlike anything that other people have faced. People suffering from terminal uniqueness will therefore not consider that the solutions that work for other people will be appropriate for them. This means that they put their recovery at risk because they are not prepared to make use of what is available. This type of thinking often stems from ignorance and arrogance. It can lead people right back into the midst of addiction. This type of thinking is also associated with the addictive personality.. ...

Recovery is also about accepting the ups and downs that inevitably come with life and recovery and learning how to cope with them healthily. Learning how to ask for support. Learning that recovery is NOT perfect. And honestly it wouldnt get us anywhere if it was. I think when we have slips or lapses it gives us the chance to learn new things and grow. I was doing really well for years and all of the sudden had a relapse. It took awhile to figure it out but I was able to work on two things I had never been in a place to work on before then. I could have lived my whole life thinking I was totally fine and in perfect or close to perfect recovery. But honestly I am so glad I got the chance to work on those things, because now I am in an even higher level of recovery than I was before. The only way to move up is to be able to deal with and use the downs :) our ED will be a warning system for when something is wrong at least for awhile.

One of the biggest challenges that comes with a real addiction problem is facing that the problem actually exists. For some people the realization will come to them after realizing theyve gone through an episode involving a loss of control. For others, it may come when they have to face a major crisis thats come about due to their addiction. Ultimately, the issue is one of hitting bottom, and realizing theres no way up except through honestly facing the problem, as its only then that real recovery can happen.. When a person faces their addiction, they can start to ask for real help. For someone addicted to Adderall, Aderall detox is the solution to starting over. Luckily there are many reputable centers available now that offer real help for those addicted to drugs and alcohol. The first step is in contacting a center and making an appointment for a consultation.. Coming in for treatment.

At The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care, we are very sensitive to our patients concerns about post-operative pain. Weve learned that patients have less pain and get well faster when they know what to expect after surgery. We believe a well-informed patient has a better recovery.. Our focus is to stay ahead of the pain curve by eliminating pain before it starts. We preempt and diminish pain by using a multi-modal approach with less emphasis on narcotics than traditional treatments. With our approach, weve been able to avoid many of the complications which plague patients post-operatively, including nausea, vomiting, constipation and confusion.. Our patients are given IV Tylenol, alternating with an IV NSAID (called Toradol) and a steroid before and after surgery, while emphasizing excellent hydration. During surgery, the tissues around the hip or knee are infiltrated with a pain-management cocktail, which includes a combination of a local anesthetic, Toradol, and morphine.. A new medication, ...

Background Persistence of ST segment depression in recovery signifies a strongly positive ETT, predictive of more ischemia and underlying CAD. It is unclear if early recovery of the ST segment portends a similar prognosis. We sought to determine if persistence of horizontal / down-sloping ST depression into recovery correlates with CAD burden based on myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI). Methods Retrospective analysis of men and women referred for exercise MPI testing was performed. Normal groups were defined as negative ETT (,1mm of ST depression). Those with positive ECG tests were further stratified based on the ST segment at 1 min in recovery. Persistence group was those with ,1mm while the Early Recovery group ,1mm. Measured MPI variables were summed stress scores (SSS) and high-risk MPI findings. Analysis of variance was used to compare SSS among groups. To assess whether SSS of Early Recovery is no worse than the Normal group, a one-sided 95% confidence limit was calculated for the ...

AU - Harrison, Stacy A.. PY - 2008/3/1. Y1 - 2008/3/1. N2 - Previous research has shown that dietary magnesium (Mg2+) deficiency prior to injury worsens recovery of function and that systemic administration of Mg2+ pre or post-injury significantly improves functional recovery. The purpose of the present study was to determine if manipulations in dietary Mg2+ would alter functional recovery following unilateral cortical injuries. Two weeks prior to injury, rats were placed on a customized diet enriched with Mg2+, deficient in Mg 2+, or on a standard Mg2+ diet. Rats were then prepared with unilateral cortical contusion injuries (CCI) of the sensorimotor cortex. Two days following CCI, rats were tested on a battery of sensorimotor (vibrissae-forelimb placing and bilateral tactile adhesive removal tests), as ...
Report to Congress on the Recovery Program for Threatened and Endangered Species 1996 U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Report to Congress on the Recovery Program for Threatened and Endangered Species 1996 U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Cover photo by P. Mullen/USFWS Introduction The Endangered Species Act of 1973, [16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.] (Act), has as its primary purpose the conservation of endangered and threatened species and the ecosystems upon which they depend. The ultimate goal of such conservation is the recovery of endangered and threatened species and their ecosystems, so that they no longer need the conservation measures afforded them under the Act. Among other things, the Act requires the development of recovery plans for listed endangered or threatened species (except for those species where it is determined that such a plan will not promote the conservation of the species), which serve as an important tool to organize and guide the recovery process, and ensure that recovery is achieved. ...
The Hart Stroke Recovery Program is based on one of the nations longest running post-graduate specialty training programs at Kaiser Permanente Hospital.
Background: Most stroke survivors continue to experience motor impairments even after hospital discharge. Virtual reality-based techniques have shown potential for rehabilitative training of these motor impairments. Here we assess the impact of at-home VR-based motor training on functional motor recovery, corticospinal excitability and cortical reorganization. Objective: The aim of this study was to identify the effects of home-based VR-based motor rehabilitation on (1) cortical reorganization, (2) corticospinal tract, and (3) functional recovery after stroke in comparison to home-based occupational therapy. Methods: We conducted a parallel-group, controlled trial to compare the effectiveness of domiciliary VR-based therapy with occupational therapy in inducing motor recovery of the upper extremities. A total of 35 participants with chronic stroke underwent 3 weeks of home-based treatment. A group of subjects was trained using a VR-based system for motor rehabilitation, while the control group followed

Article Type: Research Article Abstract: Purpose: Despite advances towards potential clinically viable therapies there has been only limited success in improving functional recovery following traumatic brain injury (TBI). In rats, exposure to an enriched environment (EE) improves learning and fosters motor skill development. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) have been shown to survive transplantation and influence the recovery process. The current study evaluated EE and iPSC as a polytherapy for remediating cognitive deficits following medial frontal cortex (mFC) controlled cortical impact (CCI) injury. Methods: Sixty adult male rats received a midline mFC CCI or sham injury and were randomly placed in either EE or standard …environment (SE). Seven days post-injury rats received bilateral transplantation of iPSCs or media. Behavioral measures were ...
A team of researchers at and associated with the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), The Scripps Research Institute, the biotechnology company Theraclone Sciences, and Monogram Biosciences Inc., a LabCorp company, report in the current issue of Nature the isolation of 17 novel antibodies capable of neutralizing a broad spectrum of variants of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The new antibodies, large protein molecules that bind to pathogens and flag them for destruction, were isolated from blood serum samples collected in a continuing global search for broadly neutralizing antibodies launched by IAVI. They should provide researchers with a new set of targets for the design of vaccine candidates that can elicit similar antibodies to protect people from contracting HIV. Some of the broadly neutralizing antibodies blocked HIV infection of cells as much as 10 to 100 times as potently as previously discovered broadly neutralizing antibodies. Most antiviral vaccines depend on stimulating ...

We all know this stroke has been a whirlwind of an adventure, it started off as nightmare and it broke me for a bit, I was angry, anxious and unsure of my future. The Stroke Association recently published a statistic saying that 45% of stroke survivors feel abandoned once discharged from hospital and I am most definitely part of that percentage. Although the Community Stroke Team were in touch with my Mum, arranging to see me within 24 hours, I still felt lost. Stroke recovery is a waiting game and survivors switch between being the most motivated people to get their lives back to wondering if life will ever be the same again. I can confirm it won
Background Enhanced recovery programme, originally called the multi-modal approach, was developed by Professor Henrik Kehlet. It is also called fast track surgery. Torbay Hospital developed the enhanced recovery programme based on the experience of Robin Kennedy (Yeovil Hospital - North East Somerset Trust) and Polly Kings experience of enhanced recovery as Robin Kennedys Research Specialist Registrar). He conducted surgical master classes with the surgeons to help them improve their laparoscopic skills. Torbay were also helped by Polly as someone who had already experienced the benefits of the enhanced recovery programme.

Authors: Martelli, Michael F. , Zasler, Nathan D. , MacMillan, Pamela Article Type: Research Article Abstract: The World Health Organization (1980) started the process of classifying consequences of disease and structuring a comprehensive model of illness by publishing its International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities, and Handicaps (ICIDH). Since that time, the field of brain injury rehabilitation has witnessed an evolution from biomedical to biopsychosocial conceptualizations of adaptation and outcome. In the current paper a vulnerability, stress and coping model is presented which incorporates psychological, social and cultural factors with biological factors to offer a schema for increasing understanding of variability in functional outcomes following brain injury. A procedural methodology with preliminary instruments for identifying important vulnerability …and stress and coping factors is presented, along with preliminary data which supports the utility of this approach, and ...

How does this information benefit an athlete? Monitoring this recovery can make the time used in exercising more efficient, because it is good to know when you can exercise on full speed, and when you should take it more slowly and simply let your body recover. Recovery measurement tests will also tell you when you are training too hard, or when you should work harder, so that an athlete can measure the risk of exercising too hard, or not exercising at all. Recovery monitoring is a learning process for you; it enables an athlete to reflect on how he/she is feeling.. What about muscle pain or flue, will the recovery test recognize these?. Even though the autonomic regulation has regained normal levels, intense or abnormal exercises done by an athlete might cause muscle damage, as well as risk to the overall body energy levels. These situations cannot be monitored via autonomic regulation tests. Weakened muscle level recovery can be seen during the exercise, although you wouldnt be able to see it ...
Post stroke depression (PSD), occurring in 33% of stroke survivors, is considered the most critical obstacle to rehabilitation after stroke. PSD is consistently linked with increased length of hospital stay, motivation to undergo rehabilitation, poorer rehabilitation outcomes, decreased engagement in recreational and social pursuits, decreased quality of life, and mortality. Although addressing PSD should be considered a critical factor in stroke recovery, the condition remains largely under-diagnosed. A challenge to diagnosis of PSD is a lack of appropriate screening tools. Existing screening tools were not designed for stroke populations or are too time consuming and complex to be utilized routinely. The goal of the present study was to identify a quick, two item screening tool for PSD that requires no training or scoring. Specifically, we examined what brief combination of dichotomized self-report questions can be used as indicators for a DSM-IV-TR classification of depression in stroke ...
Among the therapeutic strategies under study to improve long-term outcome after stroke are drugs targeting events that underlie recovery. Drugs that enhance recovery are separate from those that promote neuroprotection or reperfusion in patients with stroke. Recovery-based drugs have distinct therapeutic targets that are related to plasticity and growth after stroke, and in general, improvements in behavioral outcome are not accompanied by a reduction in infarct volume. Interventions targeting recovery have a time window measured in days or sometimes weeks-months, suggesting potential utility for a large percentage of patients with stroke. Currently, among drugs that enhance motor recovery after stroke in humans, the strongest evidence exists for serotonergic and dopaminergic agents. Restorative therapies generally target the brain directly, in contrast to approved stroke therapeutics that target arteries, clots, platelets, glucose, or cholesterol. Targeting the brain has wide-ranging ...
Addiction and substance abuse disorders are complex and deep-rooted, affecting all areas of a teens life. While developing coping mechanisms, stress management, and other life skills is part of the inpatient recovery process, the journey shouldnt end at discharge. The early days of sobriety are among the most vulnerable, especially for teens who may struggle not to resort to harmful habits. Continued support and guidance during the transition back into normal life helps fortify your teens commitment to long-term recovery.. For teens in early recovery, partial hospitalization programs offer a safe and secure space for learning to incorporate the lessons of inpatient care into real world situations to reduce the risk of relapse. This outpatient treatment method maintains a focus on recovery to give teens the best chance at a bright future. ...
The backbone of our recovery program is education. Our goal is to provide the education and skill sets necessary to allow our patients to recover from their addiction. We begin by teaching people about the nature of addiction, including how and why a person may have been at risk for addiction in the first place. By providing individual counseling with our licensed addiction counselor, we guide our patients toward recovery with the tools and insights necessary to avoid relapse and regain control of their lives.Group counseling and cognitive behavior training are also offered as additional approaches to furthering recovery.. ...

Semi- and unskilled (blue-collar) workers have a higher risk of premature drop-out from the labor market than skilled and white-collar workers (1). An important explanatory factor is the high physical work demands faced by semi- and unskilled workers (such as spending a large proportion of ones worktime standing, walking and forward bending) which impose an adverse effect on health and act as a barrier to sustainable employment (2). However, these employee groups also face various psychosocial work conditions which may deplete personal resources (3). If ample recovery opportunities are not available, the resulting continuous depletion of resources can lead to adverse effects on workers well-being and health (4). Ultimately, in the absence of adequate recovery, negative long-term effects such as exhaustion, losses of function, and physical and mental impairment can occur (4, 5). Long-term effects of poor recovery from work are often preceded by acute symptoms, measured by the need for recovery ...

Guiding Principles of Recovery Recovery emerges from hope: The belief that recovery is real provides the essential and motivating message of a better future - that people can and do overcome the internal and external challenges, barriers, and obstacles that confront them. Hope is internalized and can be fostered by peers, families, providers, allies, and others. Hope is the catalyst of the recovery process.. Recovery is person-driven: Self-determination and self-direction are the foundations for recovery as individuals define their own life goals and design their unique path(s) towards those goals. Individuals optimize their autonomy and independence to the greatest extent possible by leading, controlling, and exercising choice over the services and supports that assist their recovery and resilience. In so doing, they are empowered and provided the resources to make informed decisions, initiate recovery, build on their strengths, and gain or regain control over their lives.. Recovery occurs via ...

Hypertrophic localized mononeuropathy is a condition that comes to clinical attention as a painless focal swelling of a peripheral nerve in an arm or leg and is associated with a slow but progressive loss of motor and sensory function. Whether the proliferation of perineurial cells is neoplastic or degenerative-an ongoing controversy among nerve pathologists-for some patients resection of the involved portion of a nerve with autologous interposition grafting results in better functional outcome than allowing disease to follow its natural course. Patients with a painless focal enlargement of a nerve associated with progressive weakness and/or sensory loss may benefit from surgery for resection and grafting. ...
It is well established that ischemic stroke leads to brain inflammation, involving activated astrocytes and microglia, as well as infiltration of myeloid cells and lymphocytes into the ischemic brain hemisphere (Kochanek and Hallenbeck, 1992; Tomita and Fukuuchi, 1996; Stoll et al., 1998; Campanella et al., 2002; Stevens et al., 2002; Danton and Dietrich, 2003; Gelderblom et al., 2009; Denes et al., 2010; Jin et al., 2010; Miró-Mur et al., 2016). Although excitotoxicity causes neuronal death shortly after the onset of the ischemic insult, the inflammatory reaction is part of the repair mechanism that takes days to reach its peak and, therefore, gives a reasonable window for therapeutic interventions (Dirnagl et al., 1999; Shechter and Schwartz, 2013). Here we demonstrate, for the first time, that the monocytes recruited from the blood to the stroke-injured brain are importantly involved in the long-term spontaneous functional recovery. At the lesion site, MDMs with two distinct phenotypes were ...
