Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate compliance and satisfaction of adult patients to intensive rehabilitation treatment during chemotherapy cycles after surgery for bone-musculoskeletal tumours, as well as to identify possible predictive factors. An observational, prognostic, prospective study was conducted. The study enrolled 27 patients who previously had undergone modular knee prosthesis surgery in the period between October 2014 and October 2015. The outcome was compliance to intensive rehabilitation treatment during hospitalisations in the chemotherapy unit and patient satisfaction 6 months' post-surgery. The variables taken into account were linked to the patient's characteristics, to the oncological pathology and to the chemotherapy treatment administered. Patients' compliance was 100% (range, 61-100). The presence of surgery complications (29.6%) produced 5% loss in compliance to treatment; likewise, chemotherapy treatment with prevalent use of ifosfamide reduced compliance to rehabilitation by 6%. The mean patient satisfaction score was 7.9 in the Likert scale from 0 to 10. Intensive physiotherapy starting during chemotherapy administration is a feasible treatment for bone tumour patients that have shown to be able to positively adhere to it. Rehabilitation treatments, within chemotherapy wards, should therefore be promoted according to satisfaction level as reported by patient.
