Home-based cycling program tailored to older people with lumbar spinal stenosis: Barriers and facilitators

Publication date: May 2018Source: Annals of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, Volume 61, Issue 3Author(s): Charlotte Pauwels, Alexandra Roren, Adrien Gautier, Jonathan Linières, François Rannou, Serge Poiraudeau, Christelle NguyenAbstractBackgroundLumbar-flexion-based endurance training, namely cycling, could be effective in reducing pain and improving function and health-related quality of life in older people with chronic low back pain.ObjectivesTo assess barriers and facilitators to home-based cycling in older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS).MethodsWe conducted a retrospective mixed-method study. Patients ≥ 50 years old followed up for LSS from November 2015 to June 2016 in a French tertiary care center were screened. The intervention consisted of a single supervised session followed by home-based sessions of cycling, with dose (number of sessions and duration, distance and power per session) self-determined by patient preference. The primary outcome was assessed by a qualitative approach using semi-structured interviews at baseline and 3 months and was the identification of barriers and facilitators to the intervention. Secondary outcomes were assessed by a quantitative approach and were adherence monitored by a USB stick connected to the bicycle, burden of treatment assessed by the Exercise Therapy Burden Questionnaire (ETBQ) and clinical efficacy assessed by change in lumbar pain, radicular pain, disability, spine-specific activ...

We report a successful case of hepatic ductoplasty combined with hepaticojejunostomy (H-J) for the treatment of iatrogenic Bismuth type 2 stricture.Presentation of caseThe patient was a 68-year-woman who had undergone choledochojejunostomy (C-J) 6 years earlier due to bile duct injury after laparoscopic cholecystectomy for cholelithiasis. She complained of recurrent chills and upper back pain. Cholangiography and computed tomography revealed a C-J anastomotic stricture with hepatolithiasis. The diagnosis was reflux cholangitis with hepatolithiasis due to C-J stricture and a fistula between the reconstructed jejunal limb an...

Authors: Zuo Q, Gao F, Song H, Zhou J Abstract The aim of the present study is to investigate the clinical value of Ilizarov transverse tibial bone transport and microcirculation reconstruction in the treatment of chronic ischemic diseases in lower limbs. A total of 90 patients with chronic ischemic diseases in lower limbs were selected and randomly divided into two groups: The observation group (n=45) and the control group (n=45). Those patients were treated with Ilizarov transverse tibial bone transport and microcirculation reconstruction, and percutaneous balloon angioplasty (PTBA), respectively. Changes in the ...

ConclusionsThe 30-degreed endoscopy had the advantages of obtaining a wider view. Full endoscopic decompression using 30-degreed endoscopy allowed satisfactory result clinically and reduction of surgical infection. It could be alternative method of microscopic laminectomy.

CONCLUSIONS: Neuropathic pain was slightly less frequently associated with chronic LBP in the elderly. Pregabalin was effective in reducing pain in patients with chronic LBP accompanied with neuropathic pain. Lumbar spinal stenosis and lower limb symptoms were observed in patients with neuropathic pain. We recommend the use of pregabalin for patients after evaluating a screening score, clinical symptoms and magnetic resonance imaging studies. PMID: 25901238 [PubMed]

Conclusion Impaired lumbar proprioception seems to improve shortly after decompressive surgery but tends to deteriorate again with longer follow-up despite the sustaining favorable clinical outcome. The surgery did not affect either the feed-forward or the feed-back muscle function, which indicates that the abnormal muscle activity in LSS is at least partly irreversible.
