Quality of working life, posture analysis of upper extremity musculoskeletal complaints among office workers

Akyıldız, Ayça
This thesis analyzes the relationship between upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders and longtime computer usage. Firstly; maastricht upper extremity questionnaire is applied to Financial Control and Information Technology Departments of Turk Telekom. Results are analyzed by using spss 16.0 tool by conduction of ordinal logistic regression analysis to determine the significance between work environment and postural information and upper extremity musculoskeletal complaints. Then; development of a new tool, namely PACU (postural analysis of computer users), takes place aiming to determine the factors of disorders, by mainly focusing on work-related neck and upper limb disorders, for long time computer users of Financial Control and Information Technology Departments of Turk Telekom. Results of the PACU are analyzed by using the methods of correlation, chi square goodness of fit test, factor analysis, and ordinal logistic regression.

Objectives: To identify the factors that affect SF-36 mental component summary (MCS) in patients with adult spinal deformity (ASD) at the time of presentation, and to analyse the effect of SF-36 MCS on clinical outcomes in surgically treated patients. Methods: Prospectively collected data from a multicentric ASD database was analysed for baseline parameters. Then, the same database for surgically treated patients with a minimum of 1-year follow-up was analysed to see the effect of baseline SF-36 MCS on t...
Unique Contributions of Metacognition and Cognition to Depressive Symptoms
YILMAZ, ADVİYE ESİN; Gençöz, Tülin; Wells, Adrian (2015-01-01)
This study attempts to examine the unique contributions of cognitions or metacognitions to depressive symptoms while controlling for their intercorrelations and comorbid anxiety. Two-hundred-and-fifty-one university students participated in the study. Two complementary hierarchical multiple regression analyses were performed, in which symptoms of depression were regressed on the dysfunctional attitudes (DAS-24 subscales) and metacognition scales (Negative Beliefs about Rumination Scale [NBRS] and Positive B...
Performance of Antenatal Diagnostic Criteria of Twin-Anemia-Polycythemia Sequence
Liu, Becky; Kalafat, Erkan; Bhide, Amar; Thilaganathan, Basky; Khalil, Asma (2020-09-01)
This study aims to elicit the validation performance of different diagnostic criteria and to evaluate the disease course and perinatal outcomes of pregnancies complicated by twin anemia polycythemia sequence (TAPS). Monochorionic diamniotic (MCDA) twin pregnancies who received serial middle cerebral artery (MCA) peak systolic velocity (PSV) measurements without non-TAPS-related demise or major anomalies were included. Course of disease, antenatal intervention, additional ultrasound features, and perinatal o...
Evaluation of Glycomic Profiling as a Diagnostic Biomarker for Epithelial Ovarian Cancer
Kim, Kyoungmi; Ruhaak, L. Renee; Uyen Thao Nguyen, Uyen Thao Nguyen; Taylor, Sandra L.; Dimapasoc, Lauren; Williams, Cynthia; Stroble, Carol; Özcan Kabasakal, Süreyya; Miyamoto, Suzanne; Lebrilla, Carlito B.; Leiserowitz, Gary S. (2014-04-01)
Background: Prior studies suggested that glycans were differentially expressed in patients with ovarian cancer and controls. Wehypothesized that glycan-based biomarkers might serve as a diagnostic test for ovarian cancer and evaluated the ability of glycans to distinguish ovarian cancer cases from matched controls.
