    Purpose: Childhood cancer and its treatment may affect health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in childhood cancer survivors, but population-based studies in young survivors are scarce. We aimed to: (1) compare HRQoL between young survivors and population norms and (2) find factors that influence...

    Background: The goal of the study was to investigate the long-term course of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in stroke survivors during and up to 2.5 years after inpatient neurological rehabilitation and to identify predictors of HRQoL. Methods: HRQoL was determined in 152 stroke...

    White matter hyperintensities (WMH) are common in stroke. The influence of WMH on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) following a lacunar stroke is unknown. This study evaluated the impact of WMH on HRQoL in acute lacunar stroke. A cohort of 160 patients with acute lacunar stroke admitted to...
