Abstract

Purpose: The goal is to identify the effectiveness of the IKDC subjective score in the clinical outcome study after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament. Materials and Methods: Twenty-four patients after ACL reconstructions using twelve hamstring autografts and twelve Achilles allografts were evaluated. Lysholm knee score, IKDC subjective score, Knee Outcome Survey score and Tegner activity score were evaluated for the subjective outcome value. Static instability tests, Biodex dynamometer and one-legged hop for distance tests were done for the objective outcome value. Three functional performance tests (FPTs) including Carioca test, Shuttle run test and Co-contraction test were performed for deciding the final results. Each scale was compared with FPTs results and Pearson's correlation test was used to test the correlation between the parameters. Results: IKDC subjective score, single hop test, and quadriceps power in low velocity of Biodex dynamometer tests had a positive correlation with the total FPTs results. Conclusion: IKDC subjective score can be an effective test to evaluate the functional status as well as the subjective outcome after ACL reconstruction.
