Título The French musculoskeletal disorders surveillance program: Pays de la Loire network
Información bibliográfica July 2009, Vol.66, No.7, p.471-479. 29 ref.
Resumen An epidemiological surveillance system for work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) was implemented in 2002 in France's Pays de la Loire region to assess the incidence and prevalence of MSDs in the general and working populations, identify levels of exposure to occupational risk factors and investigate the proportion of cases attributable to work exposure. The estimated incidence of carpal tunnel syndrome was 1.00 per 1000 person-years in those aged 20-59 years (0.60 in men and 1.40 in women). The incidence rates were higher in employed than unemployed persons in the year of diagnosis (0.6 vs 0.3 in men and 1.7 vs 0.8 in women). Prevalence rates were 11% among men and 15% among women for upper limb clinically-diagnosed MSDs. The survey showed that MSDs represented 65% of notified work-related diseases.
