Table 2 Health-related quality of life in patients with low-energy distal radius fracture and controls at baseline and after one year.

From: No long-term impact of low-energy distal radius fracture on health-related quality of life and global quality of life: a case-control study

  Patients with distal radius fracture (n = 160) Controls (n = 169)

  1. Data are given as means with standard deviation, and paired sample t-tests were applied to detect significant differences between baseline and follow-up.
  2. * the MHAQ scores range from 1 to 4, where 1 means high perception of their ability to perform activities of daily living.
  3. ** The score for SF-36 ranges from 0 to 100, where 100 means high HRQOL.
  4. PCS = physical component summary, MCS = mental component summary, MHAQ = The Modified Health Assessment Questionnaire.
