Abstract
The aim of this study was to describe social participation expressed as accomplished ordinary activities, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and life satisfaction (LS), among elderly men and women with osteoporosis-related fractures with and without pain, compared to non-fractured controls. The study was a population-based case–control study conducted at a university hospital, including 408 subjects from the Good Ageing in Skåne investigation. Fractured men and women of age 60–93 years were divided into two groups: one with pain (FP; n = 87) and one without pain (FnP; n = 82). Fractures included vertebrae, hip, pelvis or ankle according to International Classification of Diseases version 10 (ICD-10). A third group of non-fractured... (More)
The aim of this study was to describe social participation expressed as accomplished ordinary activities, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and life satisfaction (LS), among elderly men and women with osteoporosis-related fractures with and without pain, compared to non-fractured controls. The study was a population-based case–control study conducted at a university hospital, including 408 subjects from the Good Ageing in Skåne investigation. Fractured men and women of age 60–93 years were divided into two groups: one with pain (FP; n = 87) and one without pain (FnP; n = 82). Fractures included vertebrae, hip, pelvis or ankle according to International Classification of Diseases version 10 (ICD-10). A third group of non-fractured subjects without pain (n = 239) was used as controls (CnP). Questionnaires were used to collect information about HRQoL, LS, social participation in ordinary activities such as social, cultural and leisure time activities, pain during past month, co-morbidity, alcohol and tobacco consumption, medication, exercise earlier in life, walking-aid, and socio-demographic variables. The results showed that FP scored significantly lower than CnP in HRQoL and LS. In general, fractured were more restricted in participation and in 12 out of 21 activities FP had a significant lower participation compared to CnP. In a regression model, participation in social and leisure activities as well as fracture predicted independently levels of HRQoL and LS. (Less)
