  1. Osteoarthritis of the hip and knee and mechanical occupational exposure : A systematic overview of the evidence.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To critically examine the epidemiologic evidence linking work related exposure to osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip and knee.

    Methods

    We investigated MEDLINE and EMBASE 1966-1994 with search terms osteoarthritis, osteoarthrosis, arthrosis ; risk factors, exposure ; occupational diseases, agricultural workers'diseases, work.

    From 123 original studies on risk factors for OA, 17 studies were identified as providing a comparison group and relating the presence or absence of radiologically diagnosed OA to occupational factors.

    The quality of the methodology of each study was evaluated independently by 4 reviewers using a standardized protocol.

    Results

    Common methodological problems were encountered in areas such as representativeness, recall of exposure, and evaluation of exposure and outcome.

    These problems often made a cause-effect relationship difficult to interpret.

    However, 7 of the 17 studies met our criteria for good methodological quality.

    A critical analysis of their results led to the following conclusions : (1) A consistently positive relationship exists between work involving knee bending and knee OA in men (range of odds ratios : 1.4-6). (2) The evidence suggesting a relationship between knee OA and occupational exposure in women is inconclusive. (3) A consistently positive but weak relationship exists between work related exposure (i.e., farming in particular) and hip OA in men. (...)
