Therefore, we have conducted a systematic review to determine the effect of complementary and integrative therapies on fatigue in hemodialysis patients. Relevant studies published from 2005 to 2019, in PubMed, EBSCOhost, ScienceDirect, and Cochran Library databases have been reviewed. In the study, initially, 21 039 pieces of data were ob...

Conclusion: In the acutely ill patients with DFNFs, “damage control” fixation with CRPP can be safely performed in lieu of HA to stabilize the fracture in those unable to tolerate anesthesia or the sequelae of major surgery. Patients should be followed closely to evaluate the need for secondary surgery. Level of Evidence: Therapeutic Level III. See Instructions for Authors for a complete description of Levels of Evidence.

Statistical comparisons of results were made via paired t-test and Wilcoxon signed rank test.Over the course of 17 years, 214 participants [median age 62 (IQR 56-67ys), 63% female] attended the course. On completion, PPS relat...

Exercise self-efficacy (Swedish SCI Exercise Self-Efficacy Score), dyspnea (mMRC), fatigue (Fatigue Score), pain (five-level question), anxiety an...
