  • Left/Right Judgment Task for the Chest Region, Part 1: Performance
           Outcomes in Healthy Women Compared to Women Post Breast Cancer Treatment

      Authors: Boyd; Benjamin S.; Smoot, Betty J.; Nee, Robert J.
      Abstract: imageBackground: Movement planning and execution involve using our internal representations within motor and sensory areas of our brain. Left/right judgment tasks (LRJTs) are behavioral tests that involve determining the side of the body when shown an image, without performing the movement. Individuals theoretically need to use their working body schemas to complete LRJTs.Objectives: To develop a chest LRJT testing protocol and document performance in healthy women and women post breast cancer (BrCA) treatment.Design: Observational, cohort study.Method: We recruited women with and without a history of unilateral BrCA. Participants provided demographic and health history information online, followed by hand, shoulder, and chest LRJTs. Images were digitally mirrored to create equal numbers of left and right images. Images were presented in random order within each body region. We measured accuracy and response time for LRJTs.Results: A total of 316 healthy women and 160 women post-BrCA treatment competed all testing. The BrCA group was consistently slower and less accurate at performing LRJTs for all 3 regions. The side of the image presented was not associated with performance.Conclusions: We successfully developed a chest LRJT testing method. Performance on LRJT of the upper quarter is diminished after BrCA treatment. We established tolerance intervals for anticipated performance in healthy women for future clinical and research comparisons.

  • Left/Right Judgment Task for the Chest Region, Part 2: Evidence for Mental
           Maneuvering in Performance During Chest Versus Shoulder Regions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Boyd; Benjamin S.; Smoot, Betty J.; Nee, Robert J.
      Abstract: imageBackground: Left/right judgment tasks (LRJTs) theoretically require mental maneuvering one's body to reorient and match a viewed image. Mental maneuvering strategies may include spatial transformation and/or motor imagery. LRJT performance outcomes do not inherently distinguish between mental maneuvering strategies used to accomplish the task. Orientation difference (OD) describes the difference between the observer's position and the body orientation within an image. Evaluating whether LRJTs elicit mental maneuvering has traditionally been based upon the premise of an inverse linear relationship between LRJT performance and OD (“exact match” hypothesis). If true, larger ODs should lead to slower LRJT performance.Objectives: To evaluate the relationship between OD and chest and shoulder LRJT performance.Design: Observational, cohort study.Method: Associations between OD and LRJT accuracy and response time were evaluated in women with and without a history of unilateral breast cancer. Images from chest and shoulder LRJTs were categorized by various OD methods that assume more efficient (shortest path: OD(shortest path)) or less efficient (rotation by dimensions: (OD(rotation by dimensions)) participant mental maneuvering. Shoulder analyses also incorporated the angle between the arm and trunk (OD(shortest path + arm angle) and OD(rotation by dimensions + arm angle)).Results: Chest LRJT response time was most associated with OD(shortest path) (R2 = 0.510). Shoulder LRJT response time was most associated with OD(rotation by dimensions + arm angle) (R2 = 0.807). Both relationships were nonlinear.Discussion: Strong relationships between chest and shoulder LRJT and different OD models suggest these are discrete tasks that elicit mental maneuvering. The nonlinear nature of these relationships does not support the “exact match” hypothesis. Factors that can explain the remaining variance in LRJT performance need to be identified.

  • Development of a Reference Chart for Monitoring Cancer-Related Fatigue
           Throughout a Supervised Exercise Program

      Authors: Marker; Ryan J.; Kittelson, Andrew J.; Jankowski, Catherine M.; Scorsone, Jared J.; Peters, John C.; Purcell, W. Thomas
      Abstract: imageBackground: Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) is one of the most reported and functionally limiting symptoms experienced by individuals living with and beyond cancer. Exercise is effective at reducing CRF, although currently it is not possible to predict the magnitude and time course of improvement for an individual participating in an exercise program.Objective: To develop a reference chart of CRF improvement for individuals participating in a 3-month cancer-specific exercise program.Methods: In this retrospective cohort study, CRF was assessed every 2 weeks (using the FACIT-Fatigue scale, range: 0-52, with lower scores indicating greater fatigue) in 173 individuals participating in a 3-month supervised exercise program (741 observations). No cancer types were excluded and individuals were either undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation, or within 6 months of completing treatment. The reference chart was developed using Generalized Additive Models for Location Scale and Shape.Results: Each participant had an average of 4 CRF observations. Lower centiles demonstrated greater improvement than higher centiles (11 points over the duration of the program for the 10th and 4 points for the 90th percentiles).Limitations: The population is biased to individuals self-selecting or being referred to a clinical exercise program.Conclusions: This reference chart provides a novel method of monitoring CRF improvement during a cancer-specific exercise program. Setting appropriate expectations and informing exercise prescription adaptation are discussed in the context of representative data from 3 participants. Future research can investigate improvements in clinical outcomes and the remote monitoring of CRF through the implementation of the reference chart.

  • High-Intensity Interval Training for Reducing Cancer-Related Fatigue in
           Survivors of Cancer: Challenges and Solutions for Translation and
           Implementation in Cancer Rehabilitation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hidde; Mary C.; Leach, Heather J.; DeBord, Alexa; Schmid, Arlene A.; Eagan, Jeffrey
      Abstract: imageModerate-intensity continuous aerobic exercise training (MICT) is used to help alleviate symptoms of cancer-related fatigue (CRF) in many cancer rehabilitation programs. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) has become increasingly popular, including several research studies demonstrating promising effects of HIIT on CRF among patients and survivors of cancer. However, we propose that 2 primary limitations exist in the current literature that must be addressed before HIIT should be translated from research studies and implemented in cancer rehabilitation. These limitations are the lack of generalizability of this research and a paucity of studies that have directly compared MICT with HIIT while matching for total exercise volume. In this commentary, we expand on the rationale for the proposed limitations and provide suggestions for future research directions.

  • The Effect of Cancer Rehabilitation on Functional Outcomes in a Patient
           With Stage IV Melanoma With Subsequent Brain Metastases: A Case Report

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Bucio; Daniela; Bertram, Jessica
      Abstract: imageBackground and Purpose: Malignant melanoma has a high propensity to metastasize, specifically to the brain. Research has shown that incorporating oncology rehabilitation as part of the interdisciplinary care team promotes independence in functional mobility that leads to an improvement in a patient's quality of life.Case Description: A 70-year-old man presented with recurrent melanoma to the brain 10 years after initial diagnosis. Multiple brain metastases led to left hemiparesis of the arm and leg. Left-sided weakness affected his ability to perform activities of daily living and exercise regularly. The confounding impairments in balance resulted in multiple falls at home.Interventions: Interventions included balance training on various surfaces, core and proximal lower extremity strengthening, aerobic conditioning, and implementation of a home exercise program.Outcomes: The patient attended outpatient cancer rehabilitation for 19 weeks and discharged from physical therapy with a reported 47.7% improvement in global physical health and 26.7% improvement in global mental health on the PROMIS tool. At discharge, performance on the Five Times Sit to Stand Test, Timed Up and Go Test, and Dynamic Gait Index was below cutoff scores, indicating the patient was no longer a high risk for falls at home.Discussion: Physical therapy specifically tailored for the oncology patient allows for a customized rehabilitation approach that incorporates oncologic medical history and treatment into the episode of care, with the ultimate goal of improving quality of life and function throughout the patient's cancer journey.
