Surviving critical illness: what is next? An expert consensus statement on physical rehabilitation after hospital discharge

Background The study objective was to obtain consensus on physical therapy (PT) in the rehabilitation of critical illness survivors after hospital discharge. Research questions were: what are PT goals, what are recommended measurement tools, and what constitutes an optimal PT intervention for survivors of critical illness? Methods A Delphi consensus study was conducted. Panelists...

Versican and vascular endothelial growth factor expression levels in peritoneal metastases from colorectal cancer are associated with survival after cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy

Cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) can increase survival of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients with peritoneal metastases (PM). This treatment is associated with high morbidity and mortality rates. Therefore, improvement of patient selection is necessary. Assuming that the clinical phenotype is dictated by biological mechanisms...

Angiogenesis-Related Markers and Prognosis After Cytoreductive Surgery and Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy for Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

Background Patients presenting with peritoneal metastases (PM) of colorectal cancer (CRC) can be curatively treated with cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). Angiogenesis is under control of multiple molecules of which HIF1a, SDF1, CXCR4, and VEGF are key players. We investigated these angiogenesis-related markers and their prognostic...
