Logistic regression was used to examine the association between being a smoker at baseline and achieving at least 1 MCID
on the SPADI at 4 weeks and 6 months.
Il cambiamento dello SPADI non era clinicamente significativo perche non superava il MCID
stabilito in questo studio a 20 punti.
Table 2 Change in Outcomes over Time Variables Pre-treatment Post-treatment Mean, (SD), or N(%) DASH (1-100) 47 (18) 29 (18) Exceeded MCID
(Yes/No) 49 (72%)/19(28%) NPRS (1-10) [bar.
8 percent of the patients achieved MCID
in HAQ-DI at week 78 from baseline.
For the analysis of autoradiograms, the upper threshold to automatically determine the boundaries of the hypodense areas was set using the MCID
software, by setting the upper ROD threshold to the value that excluded the ROD values that were higher than the ROD of the corpus callosum.
The NDI decrease for Participant 1, from phase A3 was consistently greater than the MCID
of 20%, when compared to baseline (Young et al.
All studies included in this review which were of three weeks duration or less failed to reach MCID
figures for V[O.
Image fusion was performed with MCID
image analysis software.
In a previous study that followed up 825 patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain to determine the minimal clinically important difference (MCID
) of changes in pain and its association with the numerical rating scale (NRS), the authors observed that on average a reduction of one point or a reduction of 15% in the NRS represented a MCID
for the patients.
Each represents a different construct in that the MDD reflects measurement error and the MCID
reflects perceptible change.
Another limitation could be the fact that there is no definition yet of an MCID
(Minimum Clinically Important Difference) for the KOOS, however, there are studies that confirmed that KOOS questionnaire is a reliable and valid instrument to measure the condition of the patients with knee injuries (Collins et al.
