How Do Children Die in PICUs Nowadays? A Multicenter Study From Spain*

Conclusions: Currently, nearly half of the deaths in Spanish PICUs occur after the withdrawal of life-sustaining treatments. These children are more likely to have had previous admissions to the PICU, be severely disabled or to suffer from chronic diseases. Healthcare professionals who treat critically ill children ought to be aware of this situation and should therefore be prepared and trained to provide the best end-of-life care possible.

This study aimed to confirm the correlations among hip extension range of motion, hip extension asymmetry, pain intensity, disability index, and compensatory lumbar movement in patients with nonspecific chronic low back pain. MATERIAL AND METHODS Of 66 patients with nonspecific chronic low back pain and limited hip extension, 59 met the inclusion criteria and were enrolled in the study. Pain intensity, Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), hip range of motion, compensatory lumbar extension, and compensatory lumbar rotation of the subjects were assessed. Pain was measured using a numeric pain rating scale (NPRS), and hip extensi...

Conclusion. Patients undergoing minimally invasive lumbar surgery—in particular lumbar fusions—who are lost to follow-up and responded to subsequent email and phone interviews showed greater improvements in self-reported outcomes than those who continued to follow-up. Thus, our results suggest that a substantial subset of patients who are lost to follow-up do not fare worse than those who do follow-up. However, an opposite response cannot be excluded in those who did not respond to email and phone interviews. Level of Evidence: 3

Conclusion. Although groups showed no significant differences in clinical outcomes, cervical alignment worsened after surgery in the LAMP and PDF groups. Within the PDF group, lower CL was an independent risk factor for poor recovery. Therefore, the indications for PDF in DCM patients with preoperative kyphotic alignment should be carefully considered. Level of Evidence: 3
