INTRODUCTION Previous reviews have demonstrated that patient outcomes following orthopaedic surgery are strongly influenced by the presence of Workers' Compensation. However, the variability in the reviews' methodology may have inflated the estimated strength of this association. The main objective of this meta-analysis is to evaluate the influence of(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND The assessment of post-surgical outcomes among patients with Workers' Compensation is challenging as their results are typically worse compared to those who do not receive this compensation. These patients' time to return to work is a relevant outcome measure as it illustrates the economic and social implications of this phenomenon.(More)
Sickness absence (SA) is a complex phenomenon influenced by the health of the worker and socio-economic factors. An epidemiological study of SA has never been conducted for Brazilian university workers. This study aimed to determine the main diseases that are associated with SA and find out the average length of SA duration, and its variation among(More)

PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS Researchers assessed the outcomes every 2 weeks until bone healing and at discharge. INTERVENTIONS (1) Vascularized bone grafting (VBG) using the 1, 2 intercompartmental(More)
Watson & Ballet and Vender staging systems are widely known for classifying SNAC wrist osteoarthritis. Despite of its day-to-day use, no assessment for its agreement was performed. To Evaluate the intra and interobserver agreement for these classification systems. Forty-eight posteroanterior wrist radiographs from patients with osteoarthritis due to(More)
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE There is no consensus concerning which classification for distal radius fractures is best and the existing methods present poor reproducibility. This study aimed to describe and assess the reproducibility of the new IDEAL classification, and to compare it with widely used systems. DESIGN AND SETTING Reproducibility study, Hand Surgery(More)
Clinical research is focused in generating evidence that is feasible to be applicable to practitioners. However, translating research-focused evidence into practice may be challenging and often misleading. This article aims is to pinpoint these challenges and suggest some methodological safeguards, taking platelet-rich plasma therapies and knee(More)
BACKGROUND Various treatments are available for reducible unstable fractures of the distal radius, such as closed reduction combined with fixation by external fixator (EF), and rigid internal fixation using a locked volar plate (VP). Although there are studies comparing these methods, there is no conclusive evidence indicating which treatment is best. The(More)
INTRODUCTION Minimal important difference (MID) score is an important measure for surgical clinical research and impacts on treatment decisions. Our approach considered patient satisfaction as the relevant anchor criteria. The aims of this study were: determine after surgery MID for three relevant questionnaires: Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand(More)
