Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Pelvic ring fractures caused by high-energy trauma are severe injuries with well described radiological and clinical outcomes, whereas description from the patient's perspective is less well documented. The purpose of this study was to investigate patient-reported outcome following surgical treatment of pelvic fractures using quality of life instruments. METHODS: All 54 patients (28 male/26 female, ages 16-68) with pelvic fractures referred to our institution for surgical treatment 2003-2005 were prospectively included. The most common trauma was motor vehicle accident (44%). Additional injuries were seen in 74% and in 31% the ISS was >or=16. There were 31 B and 23 C type fractures. Patients were followed for two years using two validated questionnaires, SF-36 and LiSat-11, the latter an instrument consisting of 11 questions for evaluation of satisfaction with different aspects of life. RESULTS: 45 patients could be followed according to the study protocol for two years while 2 were untraceable and 1 died from unrelated causes. Of 6 nonresponders, 5 were unable due to psychiatric disorder. At two years pelvic fracture patients scored lower than the reference population in both physical and mental domains (SF-36). Highest mean score, 68, was in the domain Social Function (norm 89) while lowest mean score, 38, was in the domain Role Physical (norm 86). The mean score closest to the normative was for general health with 61 for patients and 78 for the normative group. In LiSat-11 pelvic fracture patients scored lower than the reference population in all areas. Satisfaction with life as a whole was 31% compared with 60% in the normative group. CONCLUSIONS: Two years after surgical treatment of pelvic ring fractures, patients reported substantially lower quality of life for both physical and mental domains, when compared with a reference population, even when radiological and clinical outcomes were considered favourable.

Abstract [en]

The overall aim was to study outcome following surgery of the injured pelvis with focus on assessment from the patient’s perspective. All adult patients operatively treated for pelvic ring injuries or acetabular fractures at the Department of Orthopaedics, Uppsala University, starting 2003 were prospectively included and followed with quality of life (QoL) instruments for 2 years. The most common trauma mechanism was motor vehicle accident (MVA). Study I included 54 patients with pelvic ring injuries during the three-year period 2003-2005. The two instruments, SF-36 and LiSat-11, were used. In 45 responders lower than normative QoL and life satisfaction prevailed at two years after the injury. Study II included 12 patients with pelvic ring injuries or acetabular fractures sustained following a jump from height in an attempt to commit suicide. At four years all patients were still alive and SCID-interviews performed by a psychiatrist revealed low recurrence of self-destructive behaviour and high QoL in the younger patients. Study III included 136 patients with acetabular fractures where 52 had elementary and 84 associated fracture patterns. Fracture reduction was 0-1 mm in 106 patients and 2 mm or more in 30. QoL was significantly higher in patients with anatomically reduced fractures. Physical SF-36 domains improved with time, albeit QoL was lower than norm. Study IV had the aim to construct a condition-specific outcome instrument for patients with acetabular fractures. Closed and open questions were sent to 127 consecutive acetabular fracture patients at 6, 12 and 24 months following surgery. Responses were validated through factor analysis, scree tests, item reduction and principal component analysis which resulted in a multi-item verbal descriptive scale (VDS) with six condition-specific questions related to “Pain”, “Walking”, “Hip motion”, “Leg numbness”, “Sexual life”, “Operation scar” and a global question concerning impact on daily life activities for acetabular fracture assessment.
