Elbow Disease Patients Reported Outcomes Elbow Surgery

Detailed Description:

An Italian version of the Oxford Elbow Score has been created by an experts committee, according to the published guidelines for the cross-cultural adaptation of self-reported measures.

patients undergone elbow surgery
Patients undergone elbow surgery at routine follow up at 2 or 6 months

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. the Italian version of the Oxford Elbow Score (OES) [ Time Frame: up to 1 month post-surgery ]
    The Oxford Elbow Score (OES) is a disease-specific questionnaire, completed by patients, which assesses: pain, function and psychological status related to the elbow joint. Each domain is transformed into a 100-point score, where the highest value indicates a better condition. The total score is the result of the average of the three domains.

  2. The Mayo Elbow Performance Score (MEPS) [ Time Frame: up to 1 month post-surgery ]

    This questionnaire evaluates pain, range of motion, joint stability and the ability to perform 5 movements, respectively.

    The function of the elbow is considered excellent (score ≥ 90), good (75-89), modest (60-74), and poor (<60).

  3. Quick Disability of Arm Shoulder and Hand [ Time Frame: up to 1 month post surgery ]
    The Quick DASH is scored in two components: the disability/symptom section (11 items, scored 1-5) and the optional high performance sport/music or work modules (4 items, scored 1-5).

  4. The Short Form - 36 (SF-36) Questionnaire [ Time Frame: up to 1 month post-surgery ]
    The Sort Form-36 is widely used questionnaire to survey health related quality of life. The questionnaire is a 36-items that measures eight domains of health reporting a score from 0 (worst) to 100 (best).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Minimal clinical change of the Italian version of the Oxford El bow Score [ Time Frame: Att 1month and 3 month post-surgery ]
    A group of patients will be interviewed at two different times points interval
