Previous reports on the results of treatment for aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) have been based only on activities of daily living after discharge, whereas resumption of work has received insufficient attention.
Most Japanese work under a lifetime employment system, and it is best for those who have recovered from SAH to return to work for their previous employer.
The present study was conducted to determine the extent to which discharged patients who have suffered an SAH resume their former occupations in Japan, focusing on those between 40 and 49 years of age, who usually have a strong desire to return to work.
The participants consisted of 193 patients with SAH.
Based on the results of telephone interviews or written questionnaires, their work status at I year after onset was analyzed.
The work resumption rates for patients with Hunt and Kosnik neurological Grades 1 or 2 on admission were higher than for those with Grades 3 or 4 (p=0.015) and lower for patients with basilar artery aneurysms than for those with aneurysms at other sites (p=0.028).
With regard to premorbid occupation, the work resumption rates were high (80%) for professionals and engineers, many of whom were public servants, or teachers at junior or senior high schools.
The resumption rates were also high for primary industry workers (80%), but lowest (20%) for professional drivers (p=0.04-0.001).
The work resumption rate was lower for women than for men (p=0.01). (...)
