Walking training associated with virtual reality-based training increases walking speed of individuals with chronic stroke: systematic review with meta-analysis

CONCLUSIONS: This review provided evidence that walking training associated with virtual reality-based training was effective in increasing walking speed after stroke, and resulted in better results than non-virtual reality interventions. OBJETIVO: Revisar estudos sobre a eficácia do treino direcionado à marcha associado à realidade virtual em pacientes pós-acidente vascular encefálico (AVE). As perguntas clínicas foram: o treino direcionado à marcha associado à realidade virtual é eficaz para promover aumento em velocidade de marcha de indivíduos com hemiparesia? Essa modalidade de intervenção promove maior aumento em velocidade de marcha comparada a outras intervenções sem uso de realidade virtual? MÉTODO: Foi realizada uma revisão sistemática com metanálise de ensaios clínicos aleatorizados. Os participantes eram adultos pós-AVE, e a intervenção experimental considerada foi o treino direcionado à marcha associado ao uso de realidade virtual com o objetivo de melhorar a velocidade de marcha. Os dados referentes à velocidade de marcha foram extraídos para combinação por metanálise. RESULTADOS: Sete estudos representando oito comparações foram incluídos nesta revisão sistemática. O treino de marcha associado à realidade virtual aumentou a v...

AbstractAimsThe PREPARE ‐MVR study (PRediction of Early PostoperAtive Right vEntricular failure in Mitral Valve repair (MVR) and to explore the associations between/Repair patients) sought to investigate the alterations of right ventricular (RV) contraction pattern in patients undergoing mitral valve replacement/repair ( MVR) and to explore the associations between pre‐operative RV mechanics and early post‐operative RV dysfunction (RVD).Methods and resultsWe prospectively enrolled 42 patients (63  ± 11 years, 69% men) undergoing open‐heart MVR. Transthoracic three‐dimensional (3D) echocardio...

Abstract Preeclampsia is a dangerous hypertensive disorder of pregnancy with known links to negative child health outcomes. Here, we review epidemiological and basic neuroscience work from the past several decades linking prenatal preeclampsia to altered neurodevelopment. This work demonstrates increased rates of neuropsychiatric disorders [e.g., increased autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)] in children of preeclamptic pregnancies, as well as increased rates of cognitive impairments [e.g., decreased intelligence quotient (IQ), academic performance] and neurological disease (e...
