Título Health status of pesticide applicators - Postural stability assessments
Información bibliográfica Dec. 1993, Vol.35, No.12, p.1196-1202. Illus. 51 ref.
Resumen Postural sway testing was performed on 37 pesticide-exposed workers and 35 non-exposed subjects. All subjects were asymptomatic. Weight/height ratio, exposure to pesticides, recent organophosphate exposure and plasma cholinesterase level were associated with increased body sway. The pattern of sway performance suggested a proprioceptive impairment, well compensated by visual cues, potentially attributable to pesticide exposure. The finding is of unclear clinical significance because neurological examinations and nerve conduction studies that were reported separately did not show evidence of neuropathy.
