Background Even though typically developing youth are already at risk for physical inactivity, youth with spina bifida may be even at higher risk as a consequence of their reduced mobility. No objective data is available for youth with spina bifida who use a manual wheelchair, so the seriousness of the problem is unknown. The purpose of this observational study was to quantify physical activity in wheelchair-using youth with spina bifida and evaluate the intensity of activities.

Background Fatigability has emerged as an important dimension of physical impairment in patients with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). At present reliable and valid outcome measures for both mildly and severely affected patients are lacking. Therefore the primary aim of this study is the development of clinical outcome measures for fatigability in patients with SMA across the range of severity.

Aim: To describe active and sedentary time in children with spina bifida and to compare their physical activity on weekdays versus weekends. Method: In this exploratory cross-sectional study, data from 13 Canadian and 22 Dutch children with spina bifida (14 females, 21 males; mean age 10y 11mo, standard deviation [SD] 3y 6mo, range 5y 6mo–18y; Hoffer classification distribution: community [n=28], household [n=3], non-functional [n=3], and non-ambulator [n=1]) were analysed. Objective measures of...

A reduced exercise capacity is a common finding in adult congenital heart disease and is associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. However, data on exercise capacity in patients after repair of coarctation of the aorta (CoA) are scarce. Furthermore, a high rate of exercise-induced hypertension has been described in CoA patients. This study sought to assess exercise capacity and blood pressure response in asymptomatic patients long-term after CoA repair in relation to left ventricul...

ABSTRACTIntroduction: Reference values for cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) parameters provide the comparative basis for answering important questions concerning the normalcy of exercise responses in patients, and significantly impacts the clinical decision-making process.Areas covered: The aim of this study was to provide an updated systematic review of the literature on reference values for CPET parameters in healthy subjects across the life span.A systematic search in MEDLINE, Embase, ...
