Background: Increasing attention has been paid to posttraumatic affective disorders. However, orthopedic surgeons dealing with trauma often ignore the harm of such diseases.
Objective: To investigate the point prevalence and influencing factors of acute stress disorder (ASD) in elderly patients with osteoporotic fractures (EPOFs) from the perspective of orthopedic surgeons.
Patients and Methods: A total of 595 cases of EPOFs were treated at our hospital from January 1, 2018, to June 30, 2019. The patients meeting our inclusion criteria were assessed using a structured interview based on the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) criteria to verify the presence of ASD. After diagnosis, the participants were divided into two groups (those with and without ASD). The sociodemographic characteristics, disease characteristics, and Social Support Rating Scale (SSRS) scores were assessed. The chi-square test was used for univariate analysis, and multivariate analysis was performed using binary logistic regression.
Results: Of the 524 participants, 32 (6.1%) met the criteria for the diagnosis of ASD. The results of the univariate analysis showed that gender, personality, living alone, monthly family income, initial fear, poor prognosis expectation, anxiety/depression, pain, and social support were associated with ASD in EPOFs (P< 0.05). The multivariate regression analysis showed that isolation, low monthly family income, introversion, poor prognosis expectation, previous traumatic history, and intense pain were the main influencing factors and risk factors (OR> 1) for ASD in EPOFs.
Conclusion: Being female, living alone, introversion, poor family income, intense initial fear, poor prognosis expectation, anxiety/depression, intense pain perception and low social support were significantly related to the occurrence of ASD in EPOFs. To achieve optimal recovery in EPOFs, orthopedic surgeons should meet both the physiological and psychological needs of the patients.
