Syndrome du canal carpien : estimations de l’incidence, de la prévalence et du poids de l’activité professionnelle dans sa survenue dans les Pays de la Loire, France, 2002-2004

Abstract :

Carpal tunnel syndrome: estimations of incidence and prevalence rates and population attributable fraction of risk from the French Pays de la Loire region, 2002-2004 Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) represents one of the most frequent problems occurring in the working population. In France, CTS is the leading cause of worker’s compensation claims for occupational diseases. CTS has been chosen as the sentinel health event for upper limb musculoskeletal disorders within the work-related musculoskeletal disorders epidemiologic surveillance program, implemented in 2002 in the French Pays de la Loire region. This program combines several complementary components to describe the epidemiologic state of CTS: incidence rates and the proportion of cases that might be attributable to work in the general population, prevalence rates among the workers. The average 12-month incidence of surgical CTS was 2.7 in 1,000 women and 1.2 in 1,000 men in the Maine-et-Loire area. Prevalence rates of CTS estimated in a sample of workers from the whole region were 4.0% in women and 2.4% in men, after shoulder cuff rotator syndrome. The proportion of cases attributable to work was particularly high among blue collar workers of both genders and among female employees. According to the occupational categories and economic sector of activity, these estimations have allowed the identification of the ones for which intervention programs should be implemented as a priority
