ARAUJO, Carlos Delano Mundim et al. Influence of breast hypertrophy in the women's functional capacity. Rev. Bras. Reumatol. [online]. 2007, vol.47, n.2, pp.91-96. ISSN 0482-5004.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0482-50042007000200003.

OBJECTIVE: to investigate the influence of breast hypertrophy in the musculoskeletal-system through the evaluation of the functional capacity in women. METHOD: 50 women with breast hypertrophy were studied and the results were compared to the 50 women without breast hypertrophy. The STANFORD HEALTH ASSESSMENT QUESTIONNAIRE 20 (HAQ-20) was applied to assess the functional capacity. It contains 20 questions about daily activities in which the patient has four answer options, which are scored. Lower scores indicate better functional capacity. RESULTS: the mean score in the control group was 0.10, while in the breast hypertrophy group it was 0.71. When Mann-Whitney test was run, hypertrophy group showed statistically higher scores (p < 0.00). CONCLUSION: breast hypertrophy patients have more difficulties to perform common activities of the daily life.
