AIM: To analyze the cognitive abilities of older patients undergoing spinal deformity surgery so as to understand whether adult spinal deformity (ASD) surgery is associated with postoperative cognitive malfunction.


Does bilateral total knee arthroplasty affect gait in women? Comparison of gait analyses before and after total knee arthroplasty compared with normal knees
Solak, AS; Kentel, B; Ates, Y (Elsevier BV, 2005-09-01)
We performed gait analysis of 24 patients with bilateral knee osteoarthritis (OA) before, 1 year, and 2 years after bilateral total knee arthroplasty and compared these results to 12 normal controls. Cadence was significantly decreased in OA patients when compared with controls. Step and stride lengths were significantly different preoperatively (shorter) and postoperatively (P < .05), but postoperative results showed no significant difference when compared with normal controls ( P < .05). Step and stride t...
Predicting the Outcome of Limb Revascularization in Patients With Lower-extremity Arterial Trauma: Development and External Validation of a Supervised Machine-learning Algorithm to Support Surgical Decisions.

Objectives: Estimating the likely success of limb revascularization in patients with lower-extremity arterial trauma is central to decisions between attempting limb salvage and amputation. However, the projected outcome is often unclear at the time these decisions need to be made, making them difficult and threatening sound judgement. The objective of this study was to develop and validate a prediction model that can quantify an individual patient's risk of failed revascularization. Methods: A BN progno...
Realization of human gait in virtual fluid environment on a robotic gait trainer for therapeutic purposes
Ertop, Tayfun Efe; Yuksel, Tolga; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan (Elsevier BV, 2018-7)
Patients with disorders such as spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy and stroke can perform full gait when assisted, which progressively helps them regain the ability to walk. A very common way to create assistive effects is aquatic therapy. Aquatic environment also creates resistive effects desired for strength building. In this study, realization of a virtual fluid environment on a robotic gait trainer is presented as an alternative method. A model was created to determine torques and forces acting on the h...
Analysis of factors affecting baseline SF-36 Mental Component Summary in Adult Spinal Deformity and its impact on surgical outcomes

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...
Meta-analysis of prognostic factors for amputation following surgical repair of lower extremity vascular trauma
Perkins, Z. B.; Yet, Barbaros; Glasgow, S.; Cole, E.; Marsh, W.; Brohi, K.; Rasmussen, T. E.; Tai, N. R. M. (Wiley, 2015-04-01)
Background: Lower extremity vascular trauma (LEVT) is a major cause of amputation. A clear understanding of prognostic factors for amputation is important to inform surgical decision-making, patient counselling and risk stratification. The aim was to develop an understanding of prognostic factors for amputation following surgical repair of LEVT.
