Predicting the need for surgery in frozen shoulder patients by biochemical and serological studies
MetadataShow full item record
Frozen Shoulder is a painful and debilitating condition with an incidence of 3% to 5% in the general population and up to 20% in people with diabetes. Clinically characterized by significant pain and limited mobility of the shoulder, which leads to loss of passive and active movements in all directions. Since there are still no clear indications for surgery in these patients and almost every patient undergoes surgery according to the disease and occupational conditions and the opinion of a specialist and other factors, we decided to conduct a study to predict need for surgery in these patients. Material & Method: The present study is a cohort study. In the first step, after selecting the target population and sample size, the patients entered the study using the history, examination and diagnosis of patients by a specialist physician. For all patients, a series of specific routine blood tests were requested and their shoulder scores were recorded. Then the patients were followed up for at least 9 months. Results: The results of the data analysis showed. The mean BMI of patients was 27.78±59.4 with a minimum of 21.37 kg / m2 and a maximum of 38.22 kg / m2. Statistically, the relationship between constant shoulder score and the requested experiments was evaluated, which was only significantly related to CRP. (P = 0.025) Only one patient underwent surgery during the study. There was no statistically significant relationship between the requested tests and surgery, CS and surgery using logistic regression test.
