dc.description.abstract [Purpose] The aim of this study was to determine the functional level of activity and postural control after rehabilitation of anterior cruciate ligament reconstructed knees and compare them with non-operated limbs and healthy limbs in control subjects. [Subjects] Twenty-seven patients participated in the study: 17 had undergone reconstruction with a bone-patellar tendon-bone and 10 with a semitendinosus graft technique. The same rehabilitation protocol was used for all of the patients. Besides the patients, 18 healthy volunteers participated as a control group. [Methods] Both groups were tested for one-leg standing (eyes open and closed), static (eyes open and closed) and dynamic postural control on The Kinesthetic Ability Trainer-KAT 2000 (OWM Medical, Carlsbad, California, USA) at the 3, 6 and 12 month post-operation. Functional outcomes of the rehabilitation were evaluated by Lysholm scoring. [Results] There were no significant differences for the eyes open static stabilometry test between operated and non-operated limbs of the patients. On the other hand, there were statistically significant differences for the closed eyes static balance test between the operated and non-operated limbs at 3 and 6 months after surgery. There were significant differences for the eyes open static balance test between the 3rd and 6th, and 6th and 12th months and for the eyes closed test of non-operated limbs between the same months as well. No statistically significant differences were noted in the dynamic balance tests between the patients and the control group. Lysholm scores of the patients obtained at 6 and 12th months after surgery were significantly better than those at 3 months after surgery. Different operation techniques revealed no significant differences in any test performed at any time. [Conclusions] Performing a postoperative sportive rehabilitation including specific proprioceptive training sessions has positive effects both on clinical status and postural control of the patients. en_US
