Return-to-Work Following Open Reduction and Internal Fixation of Proximal Humerus Fractures
Michael Dietrich, Mathias Wasmer, Andreas Platz & Christian Spross
MAIN OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS
Jobs which require higher physical demands were likely to influence and to delay RTW. This study identifies cut off values for CMS and SF-36 at which a patient feels capable or willing to RTW after PHF. These values show the importance and impact of a patient's occupation or demands on RTW. We were able to show, that besides age, sex and fracture, the type of occupation might alter the scores in postoperative outcomes.
