Abstract

to evaluate the effect of physical therapy on the range of motion of the shoulders and perimetry of the upper limbs in women treated with radiotherapy for breast cancer. a total of 35 participants were randomized into two groups, with 18 in the control group (CG) and 17 in the study group (SG). Both of the groups underwent three evaluations to assess the range of motion of the shoulders and perimetry of the upper limbs, and the study group underwent supervised physical therapy for the upper limbs. the CG had deficits in external rotation in evaluations 1, 2, and 3, whereas the SG had deficits in flexion, abduction, and external rotation in evaluation 1. The deficit in abduction was recovered in evaluation 2, whereas the deficits in all movements were recovered in evaluation 3. No significant differences in perimetry were observed between the groups. the applied supervised physical therapy was effective in recovering the deficit in abduction after radiotherapy, and the deficits in flexion and external rotation were recovered within two months after the end of radiotherapy. Registration number of the clinical trial: NCT02198118. avaliar o efeito da fisioterapia na amplitude de movimento do ombro e na perimetria do membro superior, aplicada durante o período da radioterapia nas mulheres em tratamento para o câncer de mama. 35 voluntárias foram randomizadas em dois grupos, 18 para o grupo controle e 17 para o grupo de estudo. Os dois grupos foram submetidos a três avaliações da amplitude de movimento do ombro e perimetria do membro superior, sendo o grupo de estudo também submetido à fisioterapia supervisionada para os membros superiores. o grupo controle apresentou déficit entre os membros para o movimento de rotação externa nas avaliações 1, 2 e 3. O grupo de estudo apresentou déficit entre os membros para os movimentos de flexão, abdução e rotação externa na avaliação 1. Houve recuperação do déficit de movimento de abdução na avaliação 2 e, na avaliação 3, os déficits de todos os movimentos estavam recuperados. Na análise da perimetria não foi observada diferença significativa. o protocolo fisioterapêutico supervisionado aplicado foi efetivo na recuperação do déficit de abdução pós-radioterapia e de flexão e rotação externa quando avaliados até 2 meses após o término da radioterapia. Número do registro do ensaio clínico: NCT02198118. evaluar el efecto de la terapia física en el rango de movimiento de los hombros y la perimetría de las extremidades superiores en mujeres tratadas con radioterapia debido a cáncer de mama. un total de 35 participantes fueron aleatorizadas en dos grupos, 18 en el grupo control y 17 en el grupo de estudio. Ambos grupos fueron sometidos a tres evaluaciones para evaluar el rango de movimiento de los hombros y la perimetría de las extremidades superiores, y el grupo de estudio fue sometido a terapia física supervisada de las extremidades superiores. el grupo de control tuvo déficits en la rotación externa en la evaluación 1, 2, y 3, mientras que el grupo de estudio tuvo déficits en la flexión, abducción y rotación externa en la evaluación 1. El déficit en la abducción fue recuperado en la evaluación 2, mientras que los déficits en todos los movimientos fueron recuperados en la evaluación 3. No se observaron diferencias significativas en la perimetría. la terapia física supervisada aplicada fue efectiva en la recuperación del déficit en la abducción después de la radioterapia y los déficits en flexión y rotación externa fueron recuperados dos meses después de terminada la radioterapia. Número de registro del ensayo clínico: NCT02198118.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 13 October 2020.
All research outputs
#12,138,456
of 19,102,798 outputs
Outputs from Revista Latino-Americana de Enfermagem
#298
of 649 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#150,193
of 274,508 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Revista Latino-Americana de Enfermagem
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 19,102,798 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 649 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.7. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 50% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 274,508 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
