Background and aims: A low-fat diet has been traditionally recommended after cholecystectomy although evidence is lacking. The main aim of the study is to assess either if digestive symptoms improve following the operation and if the restriction of fat in diet does influence these symptoms. Methods: Symptoms have to be prospectively assessed by the GIQLI score (Gastrointestinal Quality of Life Index) at baseline, and one month after cholecystectomy. A low fat diet or equilibrated diet is randomly assigned to patientes distributed in two groups (N=80) candidates to gallbladder removal. Patients have to follow the prescribed diet and complet a questionnaire of symptoms (GIQLI Symptomantic score).
TITLE: Effects of a high-intensity progressive-cycle program on quality of life and motor symptomatology in Parkinson's disease population BACKGROUND: The benefits of aerobic exercise in persons with Parkinson's disease (PD) have been widely studied; however, little research has been done on the effect of high-intensity aerobic exercise in this group. HYPOTHESIS: The high-intensity aerobic training in pedaliers, combined with balance training, improves motor symptoms and quality of life in a population with Parkinson Disease, Hoehn & Yahr 1-3. OBJETIVES: To ascertain whether high-intensity aerobic training with exercise peddlers and balance training can improve motor symptoms and quality of life in a PD population of Hoehn &Yahr (H&Y) disability score 1-3. METHODOLOGY Setting: Rehabilitation centers in secondary care. Design: A pilot randomized controlled trial. Participants: A total of 14 patients participated in the 8-week study. Interventions: They were comprised of a control group (n=7) that followed a balance protocol and an experimental group (n=7) that performed high intensity (70%) aerobic workout using an exercise peddler + a balance protocol once a week. Main Outcome Measures: The primary outcome measures included the 8-Foot Up and Go, test, 6-minute walk test, test 2-minute step tets, Parkinson Disease Questionnaire-39 (PDQ39), Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS) and Tinetti test.
Aim of this study is to evaluate whether treating HCC recurrences in resected elderly patients is advantageous or not.
The aim of the study was to evaluate a new integrative day-care clinic concept for breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. This is an explorative pilot study. Therefore, all outcomes are analyzed exploratively.
The aim of this study was to assess the treatment effect of plates and conventional exercises on health related quality of life, pain, functional level, psychological state in young adults. Randomised controlled study. Participants were randomly divided into 3 groups: a plates exercise group (n = 29), a therapeutic exercise group (n = 21), and a control group (n = 35). The therapeutic and plates groups underwent related training programs for 3 month, while the controls had no specific training. After demographic knowledge were collected the investigators carried out the following assessments on all participants: the Visual Analog Scale (VAS), Waist/ Hip ratio (WHr), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), Notthingham Health Profile (NHP). All subjects were evaluated at baseline and post-training.
Overactive bladder syndrome (OAB) has a great negative impact on health-related quality of life. In literatures, few studies reported the comparisons of health related quality of life between OAB-wet and OAB-dry female patients. Thus, our aim is to compare the clinical variables and health-related quality of life between OAB-wet and OAB-dry women.
This study evaluates the implementation of the BOKS program in three schools (K-8) in Revere, MA, and its effect on participating students with regard to BMI, cognitive, and quality of life outcomes. BOKS (Build Our Kids' Success) is a before-school physical activity program that has been implemented in over 2,000 elementary and middle schools. Two sessions will be held (Spring 2018 and Winter 2018. This is a cohort study evaluating the impact of program participation on child BMI, quality of life, and executive function.
The Be-RALP database is Belgian prospective multicenter database governed by the Belgian cancer registry. This database investigates the status after robot assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) in prostate cancer patients. It was established by a collaboration between the Belgian association of Urology (BAU), the National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance (NIHDI) and the Belgian cancer registry. Between 2009 and 2016, 9235 patients were included in this patient registry. The studied outcomes covered quality of life measures as well as variables covering urinary and erectile function.
The study uses a mixed method study to evaluate wether the use of the indicators of the Quality of end-of-life cancer care, developed by Earle et al [Earle JCO 2003; DOI: 10.1200/JCO.2003.03.059] would be relevant and measurable in France. The qualitative part of study was designed to investigate the representations of quality by face-to face interviews with family carer of recently deceased cancer patients, and with their oncologists, and nurses. The quantitative part of the study, consisted in a decedents case series analysis, diagnosed with advanced cancer and followed up in 5 centers. Data on trajectory of care were collected from different complementary sources associating national mortality data, hospital activity data, and health records. The study was approved by the French data protection authority (CNIL) number 611273.
Pericoronitis is a painful inflammatory condition which is well known for its negative impact on quality of life of those affected. The aim of this study was to test two hypotheses: (1) that topical application of Benzydamine is as effective as oral Diclofenac or Flurbiprofen in improving pain and quality of life of patients with pericoronitis and (2) that there would be no difference between the effects of the two oral NSAIDs on pain and quality of life of patients with pericoronitis
