Comorbidity in patients after stroke: impact on functional outcome
The samples were later stratified into 2 groups: 1) those who had good functional outcome
All three studies had the same conclusion: whereas external fixation led to better radiological parameters, this did not correlate with functional outcome

One of many functional outcome
tools used by physical therapists is the Functional Independence Measure (or FIM[TM]).
Both the CODI and the CSOM were reported as being useful tools in the assessment of functional outcomes
in small animals, but further evidence is required to identify the validity, reliability, and sensitivity of these measures.
McLean places the Patient Specific Functional Scale (PSFS) alongside other existing functional outcome
measures in this inconsistency and variation in domains that make them unable to be compared.
after stroke severely affects quality of life (QoL), and for some patients, poor QoL is considered to be worse than death.
Our overall data collection strategy was to assess items from existing functional outcome
tools used in PAC so that they could be combined for analysis into one common scale.
Each patient would have four predicted functional outcomes
corresponding to each of the four PAC settings: home without formal PAC, home care, nursing home, and rehabilitation facility, and one of the predicted values would be the case mix--adjusted functional outcome
for the patient's actual PAC setting.
The purpose of this study is to share the experience of surgical technique involved in elbow arthodesis, its indications and functional outcome
in war injured patients.
The independent variables we hypothesized to potentially have an effect on functional outcome
included the following:
Conclusion: Percutaneous Kirschner's wires appeared to be more effective as compared to T-Plate fixation in terms of functional outcome
for treating intra-articular distal radius fractures.
4] Some studies have shown that prognostic factors such as stroke severity, age and onset admission interval to be a relevant prognostic indicator in motor recovery and therefore functional outcome
The aim of this study was to report the functional outcome
of first 26 unstable pelvic ring injuries surgically treated at the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology in Novi Sad.
