BackgroundA small proportion of chiropractors, osteopaths, and other manual medicine providers use spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) to manage non-musculoskeletal disorders. However, the efficacy and effectiveness of these interventions to prevent or treat non-musculoskeletal disorders remain controversial.ObjectivesWe convened a Global Summit of international scientists to conduct a systematic review of the literature to determine the efficacy and effectiveness of SMT for the primary, ...

BACKGROUND: Assessment of range of motion (ROM) and muscle strength is fundamental in the clinical diagnosis of hip osteoarthritis (OA) but reproducibility of these measurements has mostly involved clinicians from secondary care and has rarely reported agreement parameters. Therefore, the primary objective of the study was to determine the inter-rater reproducibility of ROM and muscle strength measurements. Furthermore, the reliability of the overall assessment of clinical hip OA was ...

AIMS: To evaluate the impact of using myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) as gatekeeper for coronary angiography and revascularization in stable angina pectoris.

METHODS AND RESULTS: A prospective series of 507 out of 972 adult patients referred to coronary angiography for known or suspected stable angina pectoris underwent clinical examination followed immediately by MPS, the result of which was not communicated. MPS showed normal perfusion in 258/507 (51%) patients, reversible ...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the intraobserver reliability (in terms of hour-to-hour and day-to-day reliability) and the interobserver reliability with 3 palpation procedures for the detection of spinal biomechanic dysfunction in the upper 8 segments of the thoracic spine.

DESIGN: A repeated-measures design was used in all substudies.

SETTING: Department of Nuclear Medicine, Odense University Hospital, Denmark.

PARTICIPANTS: Two chiropractors examined 29 patients and 27 subjects in the ...

PurposeCoronary revascularisation is the treatment of choice in patients with stable angina who have significant stenoses. From a pathophysiological point of view, however, mitigation of angina is to be expected only in the presence of reversible ischaemia. Therefore it was the aim of this study to examine the effect of revascularisation on stable angina in relation to the myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) pattern prior to intervention.MethodsThree hundred and eighty-four patients ...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of musculoskeletal dysfunctions based on a standardized clinical examination of patients with chronic pelvic pain (CPP) who were referred to a specialized tertiary care center for laparoscopic examination. In addition, we stratified levels of self-reported pelvic pain, self-rated health, education, and work status based on musculoskeletal dysfunction status.

METHODS: This study used a cross-sectional design to determine ...

BackgroundObserver variability of dual-isotope myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with single photon emission computed tomography has rarely been investigated. The aim of our study was to evaluate the interpretive reproducibility with this technique.Methods and ResultsWe report on 507 patients with known or suspected stable angina who were studied before coronary angiography. A 1-day thallium 201/technetium 99m sestamibi rest/stress MPI protocol was used. MPI was interpreted by 2 ...

BackgroundMost previous studies on the accuracy of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) are hampered by post-test referral bias, in that referral for coronary angiography was influenced by the MPI result. In this way, patients with a normal MPI result less frequently underwent catheterization, a tendency supposed to cause an underestimation of test specificity and an overestimation of test sensitivity.Methods and ResultsMPI by use of a gated dual-isotope protocol was undertaken before ...

OBJECTIVE: To asses the interobserver and intraobserver reliability (in terms of day-to-day and hour-to-hour reliability) of palpation for muscular tenderness in the anterior chest wall.

DESIGN: A repeated measures designs was used.

SETTING: Department of Nuclear Medicine, Odense University Hospital, Denmark.

PARTICIPANTS: Two experienced chiropractors examined 29 patients and 27 subjects in the interobserver part, and 1 of the 2 chiropractors examined 14 patients and 15 subjects in the ...

Chest pain may be caused by joint and muscle dysfunction of the neck and thorax (termed musculoskeletal chest pain). The objectives of this study were (1) to determine inter-observer reliability of the diagnosis 'musculoskeletal chest pain' in patients with acute chest pain of non-cardiac origin using a standardized examination protocol, (2) to determine inter-observer reliability of single components of the protocol, and (3) to determine the effect of observer experience. Eighty ...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the decision-making process of an experienced chiropractor in diagnosing noncardiac musculoskeletal chest pain of cervicothoracic angina in patients with stable angina pectoris, based on patient history and clinical examination. Secondly, to examine the possibility of obtaining an objective diagnostic rule tool for the identification of cervicothoracic angina and to validate the diagnosis of this disorder.

METHODS: A nonrandomized prospective trial was performed ...

OBJECTIVE: Poor reproducibility of spinal palpation has been reported in previously published literature, and authors of recent reviews have posted criticism on study quality. This article critically analyzes the literature pertaining to the inter- and intraobserver reproducibility of spinal palpation to investigate the consistency of study results and assess the level of evidence for reproducibility.

METHODS: Systematic review and meta-analysis were performed on relevant literature ...

BACKGROUND: The chiropractic profession has been well established in Denmark for several decades with state authorization, partial reimbursement by the state and a formal academic education. Biennial systematic data collections among all chiropractors and clinics have been performed since 2010 in order to provide exact information on the profession to The Danish Chiropractic Association (DCA). It is the aim of this study to outline the major characteristics and developments of the ...

BACKGROUND: Recognition of homogeneous subgroups of patients can usefully improve prediction of their outcomes and the targeting of treatment. There are a number of research approaches that have been used to recognise homogeneity in such subgroups and to test their implications. One approach is to use statistical clustering techniques, such as Cluster Analysis or Latent Class Analysis, to detect latent relationships between patient characteristics. Influential patient characteristics can ...

OBJECTIVE: To assess reproducibility and validity of clinical classification of angina pectoris (AP) patients.

DESIGN: Fifty-six patients scheduled for coronary angiography because of stable AP were classified by two independent observers with regard to (i) type and (ii) severity of chest pain (Canadian Cardiovascular Society, CCS) and (iii) cardiac functional status (New York Heart Association, NYHA). Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) was performed in 55 including measurement of ...
