Seven-year follow-up of white-finger symptoms and radiographic wrist findings in lumberjacks and referents.
In 1978, a cross-sectional study of 279 lumberjacks exposed to hand-arm vibration and 178 unexposed referents was conducted.
The aim of the present study was to provide a sevenyear follow-up on (i) the changes in the white-finger symptoms among the lumberjacks and the referents, (ii) the effect of white-finger symptoms on the professional prognosis of the lumberjacks, and (iii) the relationship between hand-arm vibration and changes in wrist bones, METHODS - The methods consisted of a questionnaire, a routine clinical examination, and radiographs of the wrists and hands.
The examinations were conducted as a field study using a mobile unit.
