Quality of life in patients with multiple sclerosis and their caregivers in Colombia: One-year follow-up.

CONCLUSIONS: The quality of life of several Colombian patients diagnosed with multiple sclerosis was very good.

We also observed and indicated an inversely proportional correlation between the Expanded Disability Status Scale and the quality of life indexes. PMID: 32220169 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The objective of this study was to provide an overview of whether adherence to brain trauma foundation (BTF) guidelines improved outcomes following TBI utilizing intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring. Methods: This cohort study between 2000 and 2013 involved 1848 patients who sustained severe blunt TBI. Outcomes were correlated with whether or not ICP monitoring was utilized based on BTF guidelines. Results: The BTF guideline adherence rate for utilizing ICP monitoring in patients with TBI was 30% in 1848 patients. Adherence rates positively correlated with younger age, high injury severity scores, lower Glasgow C...

CONCLUSION: Smoking and symptoms of adjustment disorder, specifically preoccupations, are associated with functional outcome 1 year post-operation in patients recovering from ankle or lower leg fractures. The results support the notion that differences in functional recovery are attributable to psychological and behavioural factors rather than to fracture type. Psychological, fracture-specific, symptoms play a role in functional recovery rather than general affective symptoms. PMID: 32495846 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
