  1. Shoulder tendinitis and its relation to heavy manual work and exposure to vibration.

    Article - En anglais

    Three categories of construction industry workers (54 bricklayers, 55 rockblasters, and 98 foremen) were compared in a cross-sectional study.

    In a structured interview they reported exposure to loads lifted, vibration, and years of manual work.

    They were also subjected to a clinical investigation including medical history and a detailed shoulder examination.

    Among the rockblasters 33% had signs of tendinitis in the left and 40% in the right shoulder.

    Among the bricklayers and foremen 8-17% had signs of shoulder tendinitis.

    In a multiple logistic regression being a rockblaster compared with being a foreman showed an odds ratio (OR) of 3.33 for left-sided and 1.71 for right-sided shoulder tendinitis.
