CONTEXT/OBJECTIVE: Despite urinary tract infections (UTIs) being a common problem in patients with spinal cord injuries (SCIs), and a well-known complication of invasive urologic procedures, little consensus exists regarding the standard of care for peri-procedural antibiotic use for SCI patients undergoing urodynamics studies (UDS). Our research seeks to evaluate local antibiotic prophylaxis pattern in SCI patients undergoing UDS, assess incidence of post-procedural UTI, describe local antibiotic resistance trends, and provide antibiotic stewardship considerations to guide future practice...

CONTEXT: Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is an emerging neurorehabilitation therapy for people with spinal cord injury (SCI). OBJECTIVE: The study aimed to test whether priming the sensorimotor system using BCI-controlled functional electrical stimulation (FES) before physical practice is more beneficial than physical practice alone. METHODS: Ten people with subacute SCI participated in a randomized control trial where the experimental ( N  = 5) group underwent BCI-FES priming (∼15 min) before physical practice (30 min), while the control ( N  = 5) group performed physical practice (40 min) of the dominant hand...

BACKGROUND: In our published randomized controlled trial, we revealed that patients with acute ASIA Grade C incomplete cervical spinal cord injury (SCI) who underwent early surgery (within 24 h post-injury) had accelerated motor recovery at six months than those with delayed surgery (>2 weeks post-injury); however, neuropathic pain (NeP) worsened regardless of surgery timing. Here, we conducted post-hoc analyses to intensively assess NeP development and maintenance. METHODS: Of 44 patients (median 64...

CONTEXT: Spinal cord injury or disease (SCI/D) can lead to health challenges that are exacerbated with aging. Adaptive sport is understood to provide health benefits for the SCI/D population. Prior literature investigating adaptive sport in this population pertains to adults with SCI/D who are <50 years of age. However, most Canadians with SCI/D are >50 years of age. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to: (1) Compare demographics of those who do and do not participate in adaptive sport; (2) Describe the characteristics of adaptive sport that adults aged ≥50 years with SCI/D participate in; and (3) Identify barriers and facilitators to adaptive sport participation in this age group...

CONTEXT: Motor deficits are among the most common consequences of incomplete spinal cord injury (SCI). These impairments can affect patients' levels of functioning and quality of life. Combined robotic therapy and non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) have been used to improve motor impairments in patients with corticospinal tract lesions. OBJECTIVES: To examine the effects of combined robotic therapy and NIBS on motor function post incomplete SCI. METHODS: PubMed, SCOPUS, MEDLINE, PEDro, Web of Science, REHABDATA, CINAHL, and EMBASE were searched from inception until July 2023...

INTRODUCTION: Cervical radiculopathy is one of those disabling conditions which results in central and peripheral pain and thus affects the quality of life. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) and exercises produce analgesic effect but their long-term effect has not been available to date. Transcranial Direct Current stimulation (tDCS) is known to produce promising effects on central pain by targeting cortical activity. PURPOSE: To determine the combined effect of tDCS and TENS with exercises on pain and quality of life in patients with cervical radiculopathy...

CONTEXT: There is limited research on return to education (RTE) after spinal cord injury (SCI). As a result, few programs exist to help people achieve this goal. OBJECTIVE: The primary objective was to investigate the barriers and facilitators to RTE, and the relationship between RTE and quality of life (QOL). The secondary objective was to examine the role of a Vocational Resource Facilitation (VRF) program on RTE. METHODS: A mixed methods approach with a semi-structured interview and online survey was used...

CONTEXT: Despite a high prevalence of neurogenic bladder (NGB) in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI), clinicians are unable to predict long-term bladder outcomes due to variable phenotypes of bladder dysfunction. This study investigates if early bladder events, infections, and spinal cord injury characteristics during rehabilitation admission affect bladder outcomes one year after SCI. METHODS: This retrospective study included patients with SCI admitted to a tertiary rehabilitation center between 1 January 2016 and 1 January 2020...
