Mental Health

The prospective cohort study included 207 patients over a 14-month period, with two follow-ups.Patients completed the Common Mental Disorders – Screening Questionnaire, Oxford Hip Score, and Euro Qol 5 Dimension questionnaire before surgery and at twelve and 52 weeks after surgery. Data were analysed by multiple linear regression and t-tests. . In order to assess patients’ mental health, the focus primarily has been on Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), SF-36 and other small scales [9], not including patients’ mental health according to anxiety, depression, concern, somatoform disorders, alcohol abuse and emotional disorders in the same questionnaire. Poor mental health and pain have been shown to influence the outcome of total knee arthroplasty [14], while associations between psychological factors, co-morbidity and patient-reported outcome of hip surgery are uncertain. Patients at the end-stage of hip osteoarthritis (OA) are affected by pain, maybe for a long time; and a correlation between pain and this populations’ mental health is well-known. However, it remains to be shown whether patients’ mental health is a predictor for their own report of outcomes and no studies have analysed whether patients’ mental health can predict PRO (OHS) by using a mental health scale including anxiety, depression, concern and somatoform disorder.
