Background: Every year, over 1 lakh ACL reconstructions are performed in the United States, and the number of surgical operations ranging from open to minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures is increasing globally. The present study's objective was to evaluate outcomes after anterior cruciate ligament surgery and structured rehabilitation with the IKDC, KOOS, and TAL scores.
Materials and Methods: This study objective to assess outcomes following anterior cruciate ligament restoration and structured rehabilitation utilizing the IKDC, KOOS, and TAL scores. Materials and methods: The current investigation was carried out in Narayana Medical College & Hospital and involved 30 surgical patients (Arthroscopic Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction using hamstring graft and structural rehabilitation). For six months, structural rehabilitation was pursued. All cases were followed for two weeks, six weeks, ten weeks, sixteen weeks, and six months. The outcome was evaluated using the IKDC score, the KOOS score, and the Tegner activity level scale.
Results: The 30 individuals included 24 men and 6 women, according to the study. Subjects averaged 30. BMI averaged 25.04 kg/m2. 17 patients (Group A) underwent preoperative ACL exercises, while 13 did not (Group B) 14 patients had twisting injuries, 10 had sports injuries, and 6 underwent RTAs .At 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 10 weeks, 16 weeks, and 6 months, IKDC is statistically significant (p 0.001). At 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 10 weeks, 16 weeks, and 6 months, KOOS is statistically significant (p 0.001). At 10 weeks, 16 weeks, and 6 months, TAL is statistically significant (p 0.001).
Conclusion: There is a need for numerous studies that use patient- reported outcomes that reflect patients' most critical concerns, as well as more prospective longitudinal related research.
