Objective. To compare 7 weeks of supervised physical rehabilitation with or without progressive strength training (PST) commenced early after fast-track total knee arthroplasty (TKA) on functional performance. Methods. Eighty-two patients with a unilateral primary TKA were randomized to 2 different interventions: 7 weeks of supervised physical rehabilitation with (PST-group) and without (CON-group) PST commenced early after fast-track TKA. The primary outcome was the maximal distance walked in 6 minutes (6-minute walk test). Secondary outcomes were lower limb strength and power, knee joint effusion and range of motion, knee pain and self-reported disability and quality of life. All outcome measures were assessed before (baseline) and 4, 8 and 26 weeks after TKA. Results. There was no statistically significant difference between the PST- and CON-group in the change score from baseline to the 8-week postoperative assessment (primary endpoint) for the 6-minute walk test with unadjusted baseline scores (mean difference between groups: -11.3 meters, 95% confidence interval -45.4 to 22.7 meters; analysis of variance (ANOVA), p=0.51). There were no statistically significant or clinically meaningful differences between groups in change scores from baseline to any other time point for all secondary outcomes. The secondary outcome, knee-extension strength did not reach the level recorded before surgery in both groups. Conclusions. Seven weeks of supervised physical rehabilitation with PST was not superior to 7 weeks of supervised physical rehabilitation without PST in improving functional performance, measured as the maximal walking distance in 6 minutes, at the primary endpoint 8 weeks after fast-track TKA. © 2014 American College of Rheumatology.

Knee pain during strength training shortly following fast-track total knee arthroplasty: a cross-sectional study.
PLoS ONE

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Loading and contraction failure (muscular exhaustion) are strength training variables known to influence neural activation of the exercising muscle in healthy subjects, which may help reduce neural inhibition of the quadriceps muscle following total knee arthroplasty (TKA). It is unknown how these exercise variables influence knee pain after TKA.

Number of test trials needed for performance stability and interrater reliability of the one leg stand test in patients with a major non-traumatic lower limb amputation.
Gait Posture

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Balance is beneficial for daily functioning of patients with a lower limb amputation and sometimes assessed by the one-leg stand test (OLST). The aims of the study were to examine (1) the number of trials needed to achieve performance stability, (2) the interrater reliability of the OLST in patients with a major non-traumatic lower limb amputation, and (3) to provide a test procedure.

[Positional plagiocephaly in infants can be prevented].

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The prevalence of positional plagiocephaly is increasing. A systematic database search (Cochrane, MEDLINE, Embase, Cinahl and PEDro), critical appraisal and systematic evaluation of the quality of 14 selected studies show that the following are certain risk factors for the development of positional plagiocephaly: supine sleeping position, positional preference, one-sided handling of the child, male sex, delayed motor development, reduced neck mobility, too little "tummy time", firstborn, multiple births and premature children. Recommendations for prevention are provided.

Reliability of the 6-min walk test after total knee arthroplasty.
Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The 6-min walk test is a simple clinical outcome measure, which has been used frequently to assess functional performance in many different patient groups, including patients with total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The 6-min walk test measures the maximal distance a subject is able to walk in 6 min. The reliability is unknown in patients with TKA. Therefore, the purpose of the study was to assess the reliability of the 6-min walk test in patients with recent TKA.

Cumulated Ambulation Score to evaluate mobility is feasible in geriatric patients and in patients with hip fracture.
Dan Med J
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Regaining basic mobility independence is considered important for elderly hospitalised patients. The Cumulated Ambulation Score (CAS) is a valid tool for evaluating these patients basic mobility (getting in and out of bed, sit-to-stand from a chair and walking) in orthopaedic wards, and its use is recommended in Denmark for patients with hip fracture. The aims of the present study were to evaluate the feasibility of the CAS in a geriatric ward and to describe its use after hip fracture in Denmark.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
