We developed a 12-item questionnaire for completion by patients having shoulder operations other than stabilisation. A prospective study of 111 patients was undertaken before operation and at follow-up six months later. Each patient completed the new questionnaire and the SF36 form. Some filled in the Stanford Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ). An orthopaedic surgeon assessed the Constant shoulder score. The single score derived from the questionnaire had a high internal consistency…

A questionnaire to assess patient-reported outcome after surgery of the elbow from interviews with patients is developed, which comprises three unidimensional domains, 'elbow function', 'pain' and 'social-psychological'; with each domain comprising four items with good measurement properties.
The benefits of using patient-based methods of assessment. Medium-term results of an observational study of shoulder surgery.
While all scores improved substantially at six months, the Constant score was reduced significantly at four years, and this did not correlate with the patients' judgement of the change in symptoms or of the success of the operation.
Validation of the Danish version of Oxford Shoulder Score.
The psychometric properties of the Danish version of OSS showed good validity and reliability with a substantial correlation between the OSS and the Constant Score (CS).

Using an assortment of questionnaires, relevant questionnaires were found to represent a feasable means of acquiring information regarding elderly patients in a cross-sectional design, and the SF-12 and the Oxford-12 ranked as the most appropriate general and disease specific questionnaire, respectively, in the context of the SKAR.
Reliability of Shoulder Symptom Recall after 1 Year in a Retrospective Application of the Oxford Shoulder Score
The recall of symptoms of a large group of patients at 1 year after the index intervention appears to have a moderate correlation with the preoperative scoring.
Development and validation of an elbow score.
This is a reliable, internally consistent score, correlating well with other, non-elbow specific scores and sensitive to change on treatment, which is consistent, sensitive, reliable and elbow-specific.
The Munich Shoulder Questionnaire (MSQ): development and validation of an effective patient-reported tool for outcome measurement and patient safety in shoulder surgery
An instrument which allows a quantitative self-assessment of shoulder function is developed which can be used by shoulder surgeons to effectively monitor the outcome, safety and quality of their treatment and also compare the results to published data in the literature.


Ask patients what they want. Evaluation of individual complaints before total hip replacement.
Individual differences in complaints in patients just before total hip replacement (THR) and the importance attached to the relief of each of them are assessed to improve evaluation of the outcome of orthopaedic treatments.
Measurement of shoulder related disability: results of a validation study.
A questionnaire to quantify disability associated with shoulder symptoms was simple to complete and should prove useful for both general practice and population-based studies of shoulder pain.
Comparative Measurement Sensitivity of Short and Longer Health Status Instruments
The brief health status measures were equally or more responsive than the SIP after total hip arthroplasty in the physical and global dimensions and had the highest SRM on the psychological dimension.
Controlled two year follow up of rehabilitation for disorders in the neck and shoulders.
Active, multidisciplinary rehabilitation of neck and shoulder disorders was not more effective than traditional treatment, and changed work conditions were associated with decreased sick leave, independent of type of treatment provided.
Comparison of two approaches to measuring change in health status in rheumatoid arthritis: the Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) and modified HAQ.
The original Health Assessment Questionnaire is compared with a modified version of the HAQ (MHAQ) which contains transition questions used at follow up, and results were strikingly in favour of encouraging patients to assess their own degree of change through the use of transition questions in the MHAQ.
Musculoskeletal disorders and disability in persons aged 85 and over: a community survey.
Musculoskeletal pain and disorders, in addition to disability were frequent in this very elderly population, however, as a cause of disability, other disorders were at least as important as musculoskletal disorders.
Methods for assessing condition-specific and generic functional status outcomes after total knee replacement.
It is hypothesized that knee-specific role function and pain measures were more specific than generic measures among patients with other comorbid conditions, and less so among Patients with only knee problems.
Changing profile of joint disorders with age: findings from a postal survey of the population of Calderdale, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom.
The increase in joint problems with age was accompanied by an increase in reported morning stiffness of more than half an hour, taking drugs, and disability, but not in reporting seeing a specialist for these conditions.
