    Article - En anglais

    The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of hand injuries due to farming accidents in a defined population with a representative mixture of agricultural activities.

    During a 12-month period all agricultural accidents treated at the five hospitals in the County of Ringkobing, Denmark were prospectively registered.

    Follow-up was done by telephone interview 4 months after the accident.

    Of the 260 persons injured in agricultural accidents, 117 (45%) had lesions of the upper extremity and 73 persons (28%) had hand injuries.

    The most common injuries were lacerations and amputations (45%) followed by fractures (36%). Mean sick leave was 25 days, and mean work impairment was 31 days in patients with hand injuries.
