Abstract [sv]

Patienter med idiopatisk normaltryckshydrocefalus (iNPH) som utreds och opereras med shunt på Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset, kan få en bättre gångförmåga och livskvalité efter operation. Begränsad kunskap finns avseende den utredning som leder till shuntoperation på Karolinska universitetssjukhuset, samt hur operationen påverkar gångförmåga och hälsorelaterad livskvalité hos patienter med iNPH.Studien undersökte skillnader avseende gångförmåga och även hälsorelaterad livskvalité preoperativt och tre månader postoperativt hos patienter med iNPH. Urvalet bestod av 118 patienter med iNPH som genomgått shuntoperation. De fick utföra gångtester samt skatta sin hälsorelaterade livskvalité pre- och tre månader postoperativt. Patienterna hade signifikant bättre gångförmåga och funktionell gångförmåga postoperativt. Ingen klinisk signifikant skillnad sågs avseende skattad hälsorelaterad livskvalité postoperativt. Patienter med iNPH som utreds och opereras med shunt på Karolinska universitetssjukhuset hade en bättre gångförmåga och en högre skattad hälsorelaterad livskvalité postoperativt. Idiopatisk normaltryckshydrocefalus, gångförmåga, hälsorelaterad livskvalité, shuntoperation.

Abstract [en]

Patients with idopatic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) that are investigated och treated with shunt surgery may improve their walking ability and health related quality of life after surgery. There is limited knowledge regarding the investigation that leads to shunt surgery at Karolinska University Hospital, and how the surgery affects walk ability and health related quality of life, in patients with iNPH. The study investigated the differences regarding gait ability as well as health related quality of life, among patients with iNPH, before and three months after surgery. The study included 118 patients with iNPH, that underwent shunt surgery. The patients performed walking tests and estimated their health related quality of life, before and three months after surgery. The patients had a significant better walking ability after surgery. No clinical significant difference was seen regarding health related quality of life. Patients with suspected iNPH who were investigated and treated with shunt surgery at Karolinska University Hospital, had a better walking ability and a higher health related quality of life after surgery. Idopatic normal pressure hydrocephalus, gait, gait ability, health related quality of life, shunt surgery.
