Clinical trial about the after-treatment of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using hamstring tendons with and without wearing an orthosis - a prospective randomized study

Project No. FF-FR 0251

Status:

ongoing

Aims:

The primary research objective is to evaluate the knee function measured by subjective and objective IKDC 2000 score. Secondary targets are the period of disability, the quality of life (SF36), as well as the Tegner and Lysholm Score in the after-treatment of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using hamstring tendons with and without wearing an orthesis.

Activities/Methods:

At the timepoints t0 (pre OP), t1 (6W), t2 (4M), t3 (6M) and t4 (12M) the following measurements are performed:

  • knee function with the IKDC 2000 Score (subjective and objective);
  • measurement of knee instability with a KT-arthrometer;
  • gathering of the activity by Lysholm and Tegner Score; isokinetic measurement (t3,4);
  • detecting the duration of the medical healing process.
