Reliability of shoulder symptom recall after 1 year in a retrospective application of the Oxford Shoulder Score

Shoulder & Elbow, 04/24/2012

The recall of symptoms of a large group of patients at 1 year after the index intervention appears to have a moderate correlation with the preoperative scoring. Although statistically acceptable, this limit of agreement is much larger than the 4.5–point difference, established to be clinically relevant in prior studies. The variation seen within the scores at the individual level suggests that these data cannot be used as a retrospective tool.
