Evaluation Of Measure Functional Independence In Patients Mastectomized With Armpit Lymphadenectomy After Physiotherapeutic Preoperative Treatment

      Objective

      To evaluate the influence of preoperative physiotherapy on Functional Independence Measure (MIF) in mastectomized women with armpit lymphadenectomy after preoperative physiotherapy.

      Design

      Pilot study of a randomized clinical trial

      Setting

      Hospital Dr. Luiz Antônio, Unit LEAGUE Northern Rio Grande Against Cancer, Natal, Brazil.

      Participants

      14 women divided into control group (n = 7) and GI (n = 7). Women aged 30-65 years, diagnosed with infiltrating breast carcinoma (ductal and lobular) or in situ, submitted to modified radical mastectomy associated with armpit lymphadenectomy, with shoulder motion in functional range and ability to understanding capacity preserved.

      Interventions

      The reviews were made in the preoperative, immediately postoperatively (POD 1°) and late postoperative day (POD 15°), were performed through physiotherapy reviews chips and MIF. The GI received preoperative physiotherapy assistance through shoulder cinesiotherapy. The CG received information by primer.

      Main Outcome Measure(s)

      Functionality by Functional Independence Measure (MIF).

      Results

      The mean age of the women found in the GC were 61.1 ± 14 years and in the GI were 64.3 ± 11.1 years. Concerning the MIF, we noticed a score significant difference (p <0.05) in preoperatively and 15° days postoperatively.

      Conclusions

      The preoperative physiotherapy exerts a fundamental role in greater functional independence on AVDs from 1° to 15 ° DPO.
