Background: Developing a stroke health-education mobile app (SHEMA) and examining its effectiveness on improvement of knowledge of stroke risk factors and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in patients with stroke. Methods: We recruited 76 stroke patients and randomly assigned them to either the SHEMA intervention (n = 38) or usual care wher...

Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of electrical stimulation in arm function recovery after stroke. Methods: Data were obtained from the PubMed, Cochrane Library, Embase, and Scopus databases from their inception until 12 January 2019. Only randomized controlled trials (RCTs) reporting the effects of electrical...

BACKGROUND Education regarding risk factors for stroke can prevent stroke recurrence and improve health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in patients with stroke. However, health-education mobile apps addressing risk factors for recurrent stroke are required. OBJECTIVE To develop a health-education mobile app related to stroke and examine its effect...

Background: The improvement of breast cancer treatment and the extension of survivorship have led to the development of postoperative complications among cancer survivors. Health literacy (HL), defined as patients' capability of using health information to maintain their health status, can enable breast cancer patients to manage postoperative comp...

Introduction: Managing patients with open pelvic fractures continues to be challenging and requires a multidisciplinary approach. In this study, we examined the characteristics of patients with open pelvic fractures and strategies for managing such patients. Materials and methods: The records of patients with open pelvic fractures from January 2...

This study analyzed the content of phenolic acids and flavonoids in extracts of guava fruit (Psidium guajava L.), and examined the renal protective effects of guava aqueous extract (GAE) and ethanol extract (GEE) in diabetic mice. GAE had more caffeic acid, myricetin, and quercetin; and GEE had more cinnamic, coumaric and ferulic acids. GAE or GEE...

The incidence of acute appendicitis in elderly patients is increasing due to prolonged life span. The associated morbidity and mortality related to perforation of acute appendicitis continue to present challenges to physicians. The role of laparoscopic appendectomy is still controversial. This study aimed to compare the postoperative outcomes of el...

... As several interventions had a small sample size, researchers acknowledged limitations, including being unable to explore the relationship between participants' profiles and adherence and compliance information or conduct subgroup analyses [112,135,157,205]. Researchers reported that sampling bias could have had an impact on the generalizability of their results because the samples were small [115,141,165] and homogenous (ie, primarily White) [150] and could have been exacerbated because inclusion was limited to participants with internet-enabled devices [201]. Missing data was another concern reported by researchers that may have affected the reliability of the intervention results [158]. ...
... Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is one of the most common strategies for improving limb function in the clinical setting. Studies have shown that NMES can improve muscle strength, reduce spasticity, increase joint range of motion by promoting active movement, reorganize the damaged cortico-cerebral circuit, and improve movement control [7][8][9][10]. However, during the NMES process, the hemiplegic limb is passively moved, and bilateral limbs exhibit no movement to work together, which greatly reduces the effect of the patient's rehabilitation training. ...
... The causes of death of pelvic fracture include uncontrolled retroperitoneal hemorrhage, associated intra-abdominal injuries or associated injuries of other body regions [2][3][4]. Compared with closed pelvic fractures, open pelvic fractures are relatively rare but more complex because of concomitant internal and external hemorrhaging [5]. In addition, open pelvic fracture is usually associated with soft tissue disruption and direct communication between the fracture site and the environment [6,7]. ...
