Impingement pain affects kinematics of breast cancer survivors in work-related functional tasks

Impingement pain in breast cancer survivors influences functional task performance and may be more important to consider than self-reported disability when evaluating pain and potential injury development.

io FF Abstract BACKGROUND: Each year, the number of breast cancer (BC) cases increases in Brazil and worldwide. In addition, BC affects women of working age who need to resume their jobs after treatments. This is an observational, cross-sectional study that investigated the association of physical symptoms and work tasks with upper limb disability and return to work in BC survivors. METHODS: Sociodemographic, labor, clinical and surgical aspects, and physical incapacity of the upper limbs of 62 women diagnosed with BC were evaluated through a questionnaire of our own and the disability of the arm, shoulder, a...

AbstractThere is limited evidence regarding the combined effect of exercise and compression garment on breast cancer –related lymphedema (BCRL). Therefore, we investigate the effect of low-intensity resistance training alone or in combination with a compression garment on lymphedema volume, self-reported lymphedema symptoms, and shoulder mobility and function. A total of 60 women with unilateral BCRL were random ly assigned to low-intensity resistance exercises (Rex group,n = 30) or exercises and compression garment (Rex-Com-group,n = 30). Both groups take part in exercises program consist...

This study not only provides biological evidence to support the use of duloxetine as the first standard CIPN drug but will also lead to potential new targets for CIPN drug development. Introduction A major dose-limiting complication of chemotherapy is chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). The greatest contributors to CIPN are taxanes (e.g., paclitaxel) and platinum-based (e.g., oxaliplatin) treatments (Krukowski et al., 2015). Paclitaxel (PTX) can effectively treat several of the most common cancers including breast cancer, lung cancer, and ovarian cancer (Ewertz et al., 2015; Cetinkaya-Fisgin et al., ...

We analyze a correlation with dosimetric parameters and propose an algorithm for sparing strategies. METHODS:: A total of 111 patients treated for BC were included in this observational analysis during follow-up protocol...

Authors: Alhanafy AM, Labeeb A, Khalil A Abstract Background: Around 50% of women receiving Aromatase Inhibitors (AIs) develop musculoskeletal symptoms which may become severe causing interruption of treatment. Patients with AI-induced arthralgia had higher rates of joint effusions and fluid in the tendons, so use of diuretics may be helpful. Methods: This prospective phase II study was conducted in department of clinical oncology and nuclear medicine, Menoufia University Hospital, Egypt, between Jan. to Dec. 2015. Fifty Women with stage I,II and III breast cancer receiving AIs as adjuvant hormonal treatment compla...

This article, however, is more of a commentary on high level strategy and the effects of regulation, coupled with a desire to forge ahead rather than hold back in the matter of treating aging, thus I concur with much more of what is said than is usually the case. For decades, one of the most debated questions in gerontology was whether aging is a disease or the norm. At present, excellent reasoning suggests aging should be defined as a disease - indeed, aging has been referred to as "normal disease." Aging is the sum of all age-related diseases and this sum is the best biomarker of aging. Aging and its d...

arlos Ruiz-Frutos Sickness absenteeism in public institutions compromises the execution of services, and may also generate direct impacts on the population that receives coverage. To determine if sick leave duration for temporary disabilities is associated with non-work-related illnesses (NWRI), a historical cohort study was carried out of workers at a Brazilian University. The Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) was obtained from the most prevalent diagnoses in each expert examination and from the corresponding days of sick leave per episode, adjusting simple and multiple Cox regression models. As a result, 70% of the NW...

Conclusion Several forms of exercise appear to be safe interventions for clinicians to use when treating this population and offer benefits such as improved quality of life, strength, body mass index, and mental health and decreased pain and lymphatic swelling. Additional research should be conducted to further examine the efficacy and safety of nontraditional forms of exercise in the treatment of BCRL.
