ASSESSMENT OF STRENGTH ABILITY, STRENGTH-SPEED ABILITIES AND FUNCTIONAL STATUS IN PATIENTS AFTER ARTHROSCOPIC RECONSTRUCTION OF MASSIVE ROTATOR CUFF DAMAGE 2 YEARS AFTER THE TREATMENT.
Goal. The aim of the study was to assess the current capabilities of strength, strength-speed abilities and the functional use of the operated limb during activities of daily living.
Conclusions. The results of the studies showed significant deficits within the parameters of the isokinetic tests (PEAK TORQUE, TOTAL WORK i AVG. POWER) especially for the group of external rotators in reference to the unoperated limb. At incomplete return of functional performance operated limb could be affected by difficult access to comprehensive rehabilitation especially taking the continuity of what people from the study group pay attention to.
Material and methods. The study was conducted in the period from March to June 2015 among 10 patients operated because of massive damage of the rotator cuff in the Specialist Hospital Holy Family in Rudna Mala. To evaluate the functional status scales below were used: ConstantShoulderScore and Western Ontario Rotator Cuff Index, while the assessment of muscle strength: Biodex System 4 Pro. The statistical analysis of the collected material was performed in the Statistica 10.0 package provided byStatSoft.
Keywords: rotator cuff, shoulder, arthroscopic reconstruction.
