Abstract OBJECTIVE: To identify resolution time and economic impact of occupational finger fracture with permanent disability. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted in 2004; the main variables were age; sex; disability days and sequelae. The International Classification of Diseases (ICD 10) was used for the study. The analysis included frequency, exceeded disability days and estimation of cost of disabilities, pensions and direct costs. Chi square test was used to identify the differences. RESULTS: 13,410 Fractures occurred nationwide: multiple finger fractures (803); thumb fractures (1982) and other finger fractures (10,625). Days of resolution time were: 70.5 days for multiple finger fractures and 51.1 days for another finger fractures. Permanent disability partial rate of thumb fracture was 5.3/100, 15.8/100 multiple finger fractures and 5.9 fractures of other finger. The estimated cost by temporary disability in the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social was on $10,669,000 U.S., while permanent disability costs in cases of settlements and annual pension payments were $758,536 U.S. CONCLUSIONS: Finger-fracture is a prevalent pathology whichever needs that medical procedures are review, also identify factors that decrease resolution time and establish improve actions that create boundaries on the workers damage health. It must be considered that this condition affects enterprise' productivity and decrease the quality of life from workers.
