Authors: Gil JA, Goodman AD, Kleiner J, Walsh DF, Kosinski LR, Hsu R Abstract INTRODUCTION: The incidence of geriatric ankle fractures is rising. With the substantial variation in the physiologic and functional status within this age group, our null hypothesis was that mortality and complications of open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) between patients who are aged 65 to 79 are equivalent to ORIF in patients who are aged 80 to 89. METHODS: Patients with ankle fracture were identified using the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification diagnosis codes. Patients treate...

Authors: Schmidt T, Simske NM, Audet MA, Benedick A, Kim CY, Vallier HA Abstract INTRODUCTION: It is well known that patients with diabetes mellitus experience higher complication rates after torsional ankle fracture; however, the functional consequences remain less clear. The goal of this study was to determine the effects of diabetes on complications, secondary operations, and functional outcomes after torsional ankle fracture. METHODS: Nine hundred seventy-nine adult patients treated surgically for a torsional ankle injury (Orthopaedic Trauma Association 44B, 44C) over 13 years were retrospectively reviewed....

CONCLUSIONS: The FOIS was robustly associated with indicators of dysphagia. However, associations with postural control, wakefulness, age and diagnosis highlights that tube feeding may be attributed to other issues than dysphagia. It should be further investigated whether FOIS level 4 is meaningful in neurorehabilitation. PMID: 32772736 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The aim of this systematic review was, first, to determine whether or not individuals with cognitive deficits after stroke were enrolled in trials that investigated upper limb robot-assisted therapy effectiveness, and, second, whether these trials measured cognitive outcomes. We retrieved 6 relevant systematic reviews covering, altogether, 66 articles and 2214 participants. Among these 66 clinical trials, only 10 (15%) enrolled stroke participants with impaired cognition, whereas 50 (76%) excluded those with impaired cognition. The remaining six trials (9%) were classified as unclear as they either excluded individuals una...

We describe clinical characteristics associated with robotic exoskeleton gait training and examine outcomes of people with spinal cord injury and stroke who completed usual rehabilitation care with or without robotic exoskeleton gait training. Retrospective review of medical records over a 36 months period. Inpatients with spinal cord injury or stroke and ≥1 robotic exoskeleton gait training session were included. After obtaining a complete list of robotic exoskeleton gait training participants, medical records were reviewed for comparable matches as determined by gait functional independence measure score

In this pilot study, we aimed to determine the safety and feasibility of a 15-day protocol consisting of in-hospital repetitive peripheral magnetic stimulation (rPMS) combined with intensive physical therapy for the recovery of the gait disturbance in chronic stroke patients with lower limb hemiparesis. Seven hemorrhagic stroke patients with lower limb hemiparesis and gait disturbance (age: 50–78; time from onset of stroke: 7–107 months) were enrolled. rPMS was applied to the muscles of the paretic lower limb with a parabolic coil. A train of stimuli at a frequency of 20 Hz was applied for 3&thins...

This study aimed to determine the efficacy of using real-time visual feedback during overground walking training to improve walking function in patients with post-stroke hemiparesis. Twenty-four patients with post-stroke hemiparesis who were able to walk independently under less impact of synergy pattern on the affected lower limbs (Brunnstrom stage IV or V) were randomly assigned to either the experimental group or the control group. All subjects performed overground walking for 30 min, three times a week for 6 weeks, with real-time visual feedback (weight load to the affected lower limb) provided during tra...
