Bilan des connaissances sur les facteurs de risque de l’arthrose du genou et sur les outils d’évaluation et les interventions en matière de soins et services
L'arthrose est une maladie chronique caractérisée par une dégénérescence progressive du cartilage et de l'os sous-chondral, entraînant de la douleur, des limitations fonctionnelles et des incapacités à long terme. Les articulations portantes sont particulièrement vulnérables au développement de la maladie, mais l'arthrose du genou (AG) est plus susceptible de causer des incapacités fonctionnelles. Bien que la maladie soit principalement présente chez les personnes âgées de plus de...
Ankle fractures and employment
A life-changing event for patients PURPOSE: Ankle fractures, one of the most common types of orthopaedic injury, have been associated with reduced functional outcome and significant changes in long-term employment. Although information on unemployment following ankle fractures can be important in cases of financial compensation, no studies have investigated rates of short-term disability and employment status among patients who have suffered isolated ankle fractures in the US. METHOD: We retrospectively reviewed 573 medical charts for patients who were treated for ankle fractures in the last 3...
Evaluation of Functional Restoration Outcomes for Chronic Disabling Occupational Lower Extremity Disorders
Objective: To compare patients with chronic low back pain (LBP) with those with chronic lower extremity (LE) disorders. Methods: Participants were 2164 consecutive patients with either LE or LBP disorders, admitted to a functional restoration program (FRP). Analyses compared demographic, psychosocial, and work-related factors and 1-year post-FRP socioeconomic outcomes. Results: Patients with LE disorders initially reported lower symptom levels of depression, pain, and disability and were also less likely to have a substance use or opioid dependence disorder, relative to LBP patients. Both groups...
Trajectories and predictors of return to work after traumatic limb injury
A 2-year follow-up study Objectives: This study aims to explore the trajectories of return to work (RTW) and examine the predictors of different trajectories among workers following traumatic limb injury. Methods: A total of 804 participants were recruited during hospital admission for a 2-year prospective study. The RTW outcome was repeatedly assessed at 1, 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24 months after the injury. A group-based trajectory model (GBTM) was employed to identify trajectories of RTW among the participants. Comparisons of group characteristics of different trajectories were performed based on...
A prospective cohort study on severe pain as a risk factor for long-term sickness absence in blue- and white-collar workers
Andersen, Lars Louis et al. (2011). A prospective cohort study on severe pain as a risk factor for long-term sickness absence in blue- and white-collar workers. Occuputional and Environmental Medicine , 68 : 590-592. Source: Objective To estimate the impact of pain in different body regions on future long-term sickness absence (LTSA) among blue- and white-collar workers. Method Prospective cohort study in a representative sample of 5603 employees (the Danish Work Environment Cohort Study) interviewed in 2000, and followed in 2001–2002 in a national...
A Review of Occupational Knee Disorders
Lower extremity knee disorders, like other cumulative disorders of the body, build up over time through cumulative exposures. 2006 data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reveal that cumulative knee disorders account for 65% of lower extremity musculoskeletal disorders and 5% of total body musculoskeletal disorders. Methods The objective of the literature review was to find papers on work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) common to the knee region. From these, symptoms of the disorders, affected industries, and potential risk factors were assessed. Results A review of the literature...
Sociodemographic, clinical, and work characteristics associated with return-to-work outcomes following surgery for work-related knee injury
This study examined the association between return-to-work (RTW) outcomes and sociodemographic, clinical, and work characteristics among a cohort of injured workers who underwent knee surgery between 2001–2005 in British Columbia, Canada. Source :
