Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet med studien är att jämföra resultatet i Cobbvinkeln och livskvalitet för adolescens idiopatiska skoliospatienter, behandlade med Providence nattkorsett eller Boston dagkorsett. 

Metod: Studiedesign var en systematisk litteraturstudie och databaserna som användes vid artikelsökning var Medline, CINAHL och Scopus. Artiklar identifierande var 270st i första sökningen. Inklusionskriterier bestämdes innan och ej matchande artiklar exkluderade och värderingsverktyg som användes var JBI. 

Resultat: Sex artiklar inkluderades där sammanlagt 645 patienter deltog. Tre fokuserade på Cobbvinkel och tre på livskvalité. Det var ingen statistiskt signifikant skillnad i Cobb vinkeln mellan Providence nattkorsett och Boston dagkorsett. I livskvalitéfrågeformulären kunde det ses en statistiskt signifikant skillnad mellan de två korsetterna på vissa domäns. De flesta av studierna mätte utfallen på ett giltigt sätt. I några av studierna var resultatet inte lika giltigt, vilket resulterade i bristande i validitet och reliabilitet.

Slutsats: Det är ingen signifikant skillnad mellan Providence nattkorsett och Boston dagkorsett i resultat gällande Cobbvinkeln. Inom livskvalité kunde ingen slutsats dras på grund av att studierna som innehöll Boston dag korsett hade olika resultat. Mer forskning krävs inom båda områdena.

Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim of the study is to compare the result in Cobb angle and quality of life (QoL) for patients with idiopathic scoliosis in adolescence treated with Providence nighttime brace or Boston full-time brace.

Method: The study is a systematic review and the databases used were Medline, CINAHL and Scopus. The appraisal tool used was JBI. Non-matching articles to the inclusion criteria were excluded. Outcome of interest is Cobb angle and QoL.

Result: Six articles were included in which a total of 645 patients participated. Three articles evaluated Cobb angle and three QoL. No statistically significant difference in Cobb angle between Providence nighttime brace and Boston full-time brace was found. QoL questionnaires had statistically significant difference between the two braces in some domains. There were differences regarding validity and reliability of the included studies, although the majority measured outcome in a valid way.

Conclusion: There is no significant difference between Providence nighttime brace and Boston full-time brace in Cobb angle. No conclusion could be drawn from current articles in QoL since the studies evaluated Boston full- time brace had different results. More research must be conducted in both Cobb angle and QoL.
