EARLY AND LATE RESULTS OF THE PHYSIOTHERAPY PROGRAM IN THE PATIENT WITH SIMULTANEOUS BILATERAL ROBOTIC SURGERY DUE TO DEVELOPMENTAL HIP DYSPLASIA-CASE REPORT
MSc. PT. Cemaliye Hürer* and Prof. Dr. PT. Zafer Erden
Developmental Hip Dysplasia (DHD) is defined as a pathological condition where the structures that make up the hip joint show structural impairment for various reasons and the relationship between the femur and acetabulum is disturbed, although normal in intrauterine life. The aim of this case study is to present the results of the physiotherapy program after simultaneous bilateral MAKOplasty surgery due to DHD. In the literature, bilateral simultaneous hip arthroplasty surgical procedures are very rare and there is no study showing the effectiveness of the physiotherapy program after MAKOplasty surgery. The results of our case are the first study of this nature. 50-year-old woman who underwent total hip prosthesis with bilateral simultaneous robotic surgery due to DHD, 8 weeks of physiotherapy and rehabilitation program, early and late effects on pain intensity, lower extremity range of motion, lower extremity muscle?s strength, kinesiophobia, ability to forget the artificial joint and hip function were evaluated. According to the results of the evaluation made at the end of the study and at the end of the 6 th month, it was observed that the pain intensity of the individual decreased, hip and knee joint range of motion and muscular strength increased, at the same time began to forget the artificial joint and joint awareness improved, decreased fear of movement and increased functional level. The 8-week physiotherapy program planned for the individual is considered to be of great importance in increasing the functional level of the patient.[Full Text Article]
