Abstract [en]

Objective: To estimate patient acceptable symptom state (PASS) and treatment failure (TF) threshold values for Work Productivity and Activity Impairment (WPAI) measure and EQ-5D-5L among people with hip or knee osteoarthritis (OA) 3 and 12 months following participation in a digital self-management intervention (Joint Academy®).

Methods: Among the participants, we computed work and activity impairments scores (both 0–100, with a higher value reflecting higher impairment) and the Swedish hypothetical- (range: − 0.314 to 1) and experience-based (range: 0.243–0.976) EQ-5D-5L index scores (a higher score indicates better health status) at 3- (n = 14,607) and 12-month (n = 2707) follow-ups. Threshold values for PASS and TF were calculated using anchor-based adjusted predictive modeling. We also explored the baseline dependency of threshold values according to pain severity at baseline.

Results: Around 42.0% and 48.3% of the participants rated their current state as acceptable, while 4.2% and 2.8% considered the treatment had failed at 3 and 12 months, respectively. The 3-month PASS/TF thresholds were 16/29 (work impairment), 26/50 (activity impairment), 0.92/0.77 (hypothetical EQ-5D-5L), and 0.87/0.77 (the experience-based EQ-5D-5L). The thresholds at 12 months were generally comparable to those estimated at 3 months. There were baseline dependencies in PASS/TF thresholds with participants with more severe baseline pain considering poorer (more severe) level of WPAI/EQ-5D-5L as satisfactory.

Conclusion: PASS and TF threshold values for WPAI and EQ-5D-5L might be useful for meaningful interpretation of these measures among people with OA. The observed baseline dependency of estimated thresholds limits their generalizability and values should be applied with great caution in other settings/populations.

Abstract [en]

Objective: To investigate associations between postural orientation errors (POEs) in patients undergoing rehabilitation for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) and patient-reported outcomes (PROMs) at 2-year follow-up.

Design: Prospective cohort study.

Methods: Fifty-three participants (mean (SD) 27 (6.5) years, 24 women), (mean (range) 7 (4–10) months post ACLR) were included. At baseline, all participants were visually assessed for POEs using a validated test battery. The POE subscales Activities of Daily Living and Sport were used in the analysis. At 2-years, the following PROMs were collected: Global knee function, Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score, ACL Quality of Life (QoL), Knee Self-Efficacy Scale (K-SES), and ACL Return-to-Sport after Injury scale.

Results: Twenty-one participants answered the questionnaires at 2 years (7 women and 14 men). Worse baseline POE Sport was associated with worse scores on K-SES (rs ​= ​–0.435, p ​≤ ​0.049) and ACL-QoL (rs ​= ​−0.467 to −0.576, p ​≤ ​0.038) at follow-up. No statistically significant associations were observed between POEs and the other PROMs.

Conclusion: Postural orientation during the rehabilitation phase may be important for future knee self-efficacy and knee-related QoL after ACLR. Given the small population and low response rate, this result needs to be confirmed in future research.

Abstract [en]

Background: Sports function and psychological readiness to return to sports (RTS) are important outcomes when evaluating rehabilitation after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). It is, however, unclear which specific factors contribute most to these outcomes.

Purpose: To determine associations between demographic characteristics, objective measurements of physical function, patient-reported outcome measure scores, sports-related function assessed with the Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) Sport and Recreation subscale, and psychological readiness to RTS assessed with the Anterior Cruciate Ligament–Return to Sport after Injury (ACL-RSI) scale at 1 year after ACLR.

Study Design: Cross-sectional study; Level of evidence, 3. Methods: At a mean of 12.5 ± 2.0 months after ACLR, 143 participants (50.3% female), with a mean age of 25.0 ± 5.7 years, were assessed for demographic characteristics, physical factors (hop performance, muscle strength, ankle and hip range of motion), and psychological factors (KOOS Pain and Symptoms subscales, Perceived Stress Scale, fear of reinjury) as well as the KOOS Sport and Recreation subscale and ACL-RSI scale. Backward linear regression models were used to evaluate factors associated with sports function and psychological readiness to RTS.

Results: Lower isokinetic knee extension peak torque (limb symmetry index) (B = 18.38 [95% CI, 3.01-33.75]), lower preinjury activity level (B = 2.00 [95% CI, 0.87-3.14]), greater knee pain (B = 0.90 [95% CI, 0.70-1.10]), shorter time between injury and reconstruction (B = 0.16 [95% CI, 0.05-0.26]), and greater fear of reinjury (B = 0.11 [95% CI, 0.01-0.20]) were associated with a worse KOOS Sport and Recreation subscore (R2 = 0.683). A shorter hop distance (B = 0.15 [95% CI, 0.00-0.29]) was associated with a lower ACL-RSI score (R2 = 0.245).

Conclusion: A combination of knee muscle strength, activity level, knee pain, timing of surgery, and fear of reinjury accounted for approximately 70% of the variation in sports function at 1 year after ACLR. In contrast, there was only 1 weak association between physical function and psychological readiness to RTS at this time point. Thus, factors associated with current sports function are much better known than features related to psychological readiness to RTS.

Abstract [en]

Objective: Establish proportions of patients reporting important improvement, acceptable symptoms and treatment failure and define interpretation threshold values for pain, patient-reported function and quality-of-life after participating in digital first-line treatment including education and exercise for hip and knee osteoarthritis (OA).

Methods: Observational study. Responses to the pain Numeric Rating Scale (NRS, 0-10 best to worst), Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score 12 (KOOS-12) and Hip disability and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score 12 (HOOS-12, both 0-100 worst to best) were obtained for 4383 (2987) and 20341 (1264) participants with knee (hip) OA at 3 and 12 months post intervention.. Threshold values for Minimal Important Change (MIC), Patient Acceptable Symptom State (PASS) and Treatment Failure (TF) were estimated using anchor-based predictive modeling.

Results: 70–85% reported an important improvement in pain, function and quality of life after 3 and 12 months follow-up. 42% (3 months) and 51% (12 months) considered their current state as satisfactory, whereas 2-4% considered treatment failed. MIC values were -1 (NRS) and 0-4 (KOOS/HOOS-12) across follow-ups and joint affected. PASS threshold value for NRS was 3, and 53–73 for the KOOS/HOOS-12 subscales Corresponding values for TF were 5 (NRS) and 34–55 (KOOS/HOOS-12). Patients with more severe pain at baseline had higher MIC scores and accepted poorer outcomes at follow-ups.

Conclusion: Threshold estimates aid in the interpretation of outcomes after first-line OA interventions assessed with NRS Pain and KOOS/HOOS-12. Baseline pain severity is important to consider when interpreting threshold values after first-line interventions in these patients.

Abstract [en]

Background: The risk of sustaining a graft rupture after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) is high. Contributing risk factors are, however, still not clearly identified.

Objective: The aim of this systematic review was to identify and quantify risk factors for graft rupture after ACLR.

Methods: A systematic review with meta-analysis (PROSPERO CRD42020140129) based on PRISMA guidelines was performed. MEDLINE, CINAHL and EMBASE were searched from inception to September 2021. Prospective and retrospective studies addressing risk factors for graft rupture after ACLR in males/females of all ages were considered. Meta-analyses using a random effect model (effect measure: odds ratio [OR] with 95% confidence interval [CI]) were performed. The GRADE tool was used to assess evidence quality.

Results: Following full-text screening of 310 relevant papers, 117 were eventually included, incorporating up to 133,000 individuals in each meta-analysis. Higher Tegner activity level (≥ 7 vs < 7) at primary injury (OR 3.91, 95% CI 1.69–9.04), increased tibial slope (degrees) (OR 2.21, 95% CI 1.26–3.86), lower psychological readiness to return to sport (RTS) (OR 2.18, 95% CI 1.32–3.61), early surgery (< 12 vs ≥ 12 months) (OR 1.87, 95% CI 1.58–2.22), RTS (pre-injury level) (OR 1.87, 95% CI 1.21–2.91) and family history of ACL injury (OR 1.76, 95% CI 1.34–2.31) were all associated with increased odds of graft rupture. Higher age (OR 0.47, 95% CI 0.39–0.59), female sex (OR 0.88, 95% CI 0.79–0.98), fewer self-reported knee symptoms pre-reconstruction (OR 0.81, 95% CI 0.69–0.95) and concomitant cartilage injuries (OR 0.70, 95% CI 0.62–0.79) instead decreased the odds. Meta-analysis revealed no association between body mass index, smoking, joint laxity, RTS time, knee kinematics, muscle strength or hop performance and graft rupture.

Conclusion: Conspicuous risk factors for graft rupture were mainly sports and hereditary related. Few studies investigated function-related modifiable factors or included sports exposure data.

Abstract [en]

Aim: To study the association between within-person changes in patient-reported outcomes (PROMs) and wish for joint surgery during participation in a digital first-line intervention comprising exercise and education for knee/hip osteoarthritis (OA).

Methods: Retrospective observational registry study. Participants enrolled between 01/06/2018 and 30/10/2021 with follow-up data at 3 months (n=13,961). We used asymmetric fixed effect (conditional) logistic regressions to study the association between change in wish to undergo surgery at last available time point (3,6,9 or 12 months) and improvement or worsening of PROMs pain (0-10), quality of life (EQ5D-5L, 0.243-0.976), overall health (0-10), activity impairment (0-10), walking difficulties (yes/no), fear of movement (yes/no) and Knee/Hip injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score 12 Items (KOOS-12/HOOS-12, 0-100) function and quality of life (QoL) subscales.

Results: The proportion of participants wishing to undergo surgery declined by 2% (95% CI 1.9, 3.0), from 15.7% at the baseline to 13.3% at 3 months. Generally, improvements in PROMs were associated with reduced likelihood of wishing for surgery while worsening was associated with increased likelihood. For pain, activity impairment EQ-5D and KOOS/HOOS QoL, a worsening led to a change in the probability of wish for surgery of larger absolute magnitude than an improvement in the same PROM.

Conclusions: Within-person improvements in PROMs are associated with reduced wish for surgery, while worsenings with an increased wish for surgery. Larger improvements in PROMs may be needed to match the magnitude of the change in wish for surgery associated with a worsening in the same PROM.

Abstract [en]

Background: Metronome cueing has been shown to reduce gait variability and thereby potentially reduce falls risk in individuals with Parkinson's disease. It is unclear however, if metronome cueing has a similar effect in healthy older adults with a history of falls.

Aim: To investigate whether a traditional and/or an adaptive metronome, based on an individual's gait pattern, were effective in reducing gait variability in older adults with a history of falls.

Methods: Twenty older adults (15 women, 71 ± 4.9 years) with a history of falls were included in this cross-over study. Participants received two types of cueing (adaptive and traditional metronome) 1 week apart. The variability of the participants' stride time, stride length, walking speed and duration of double leg support were recorded during three walking conditions (baseline, during feedback and post-feedback gait). Repeated-measures ANOVA was used to assess the possible effects of the two cueing strategies on gait variables.

Results: Compared with the baseline condition, participants had significantly increased stride time variability during feedback (F (2) = 9.83, p < 0.001) and decreased double leg support time variability post-feedback (F (2) 3.69, p = 0.034). Increased stride time variability was observed with the adaptive metronome in comparison to the traditional metronome.

Conclusion: Metronome cueing strategies may reduce double leg support variability in older adults with a history of falls but seem to increase stride time variability. Further studies are needed to investigate if metronome cueing is more beneficial for individuals with greater baseline gait variability than those included in the current study.

Abstract [en]

Background: Two commonly used instruments to assess muscle strength after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction are the isokinetic dynamometer, which measures isokinetic torque and the hand-held dynamometer, which measures isometric torque. Isokinetic dynamometers are considered superior to other instruments but may not be commonly used in clinical settings. Hand-held dynamometers are small, portable, and more clinically applicable devices.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to assess agreement between a hand-held dynamometer and an isokinetic dynamometer, used to assess lower limb symmetry in knee muscle torque one year after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.

Study design: Cross-sectional measurement study

Methods: Seventy-two participants who had undergone ACL reconstruction (35 men, 37 women; age= 25.8 ± 5.4 years) were included. Isokinetic muscle torque in knee flexion and extension was measured with an isokinetic dynamometer. Isometric flexion and extension knee muscle torque was measured with a hand-held dynamometer. Bland & Altman plots and Cohen’s Kappa coefficient were used to assess agreement between measurements obtained from the instruments.

Result: Bland & Altman plots showed wide limits of agreement between the instruments for both flexion and extension limb symmetry index. Cohen´s Kappa coefficient revealed a poor to slight agreement between the extension limb symmetry index values (0.136) and a fair agreement for flexion limb symmetry index values (0.236). Cross-tabulations showed that the hand-held dynamometer detected a significantly larger number of participants with abnormal flexion torque limb symmetry index compared to the isokinetic dynamometer.

Conclusion: The wide limits of agreements and Cohen’s Kappa coefficients values revealed insufficient agreement between the measurements taken with the two instruments, indicating that the instruments should not be used interchangeably. The hand-held dynamometer was more sensitive in detecting abnormal limb symmetry index in flexion torque, which promotes the option of use of hand-held dynamometers to detect differences between the injured and uninjured leg after ACL reconstruction.

Abstract [en]

Objectives: To investigate the association between sensorimotor function and visual assessment of postural orientation during execution of weight-bearing activities in patients with anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR).

Design: Cross-sectional study.

Setting: Laboratory.

Participants: Fifty-two individuals (23 women and 29 men, mean (SD) age 26.5 (6.4)) approximately 7 months after ACLR.

Main outcome measures: Sensorimotor function (proprioception, ankle dorsiflexion range of motion, and isometric muscle strength of the hip, knee, and trunk) were recorded on the injured leg. Postural orientation errors (POEs) were visually scored from video-recordings of the injured leg during execution of 5 functional tasks, and POE subscales activities of daily living (ADL) and Sport, and Total POE score were used in the analysis.

Results: Lower hip external rotation strength was associated with higher Total POE score (B = −24.4, p = 0.041) and higher POE subscale ADL score (B = −24.9, p = 0.03). No associations between sensorimotor function and POE subscale Sport were found.

Conclusions: Decreased hip external rotation strength might contribute to higher scores on the POE subscale ADL and the Total POE score, in men and women following ACLR. Future studies will reveal if strengthening of hip external rotation strength improves postural orientation.
