Effects of comprehensive rehabilitation training in combinationwith multi-mode analgesia on body function recovery after tumor-type knee replacement
Objective: To discuss the significance of comprehensive rehabilitation training combined with multimodal analgesia (MMA) for the early knee function recovery of patients with knee bone tumor who underwent prosthesis replacement operation.
Methods: Sixty patients with knee bone tumor who underwent prosthesis replacement operation were selected and randomly divided into two groups according to rehabilitation training and postoperative analgesic methods, namely, observation group and control group, 30 cases in each group. The control group was treated with symptomatic treatment (drugs were given based on pain before and after surgery) and continuous passive motion (CPM) functional training, while the observation group was treated with comprehensive rehabilitation training combined with MMA. The compliance of patients in the two groups was compared and the first-time off-bed activity time was recorded. Recovery conditions of wounds were observed, and recovery conditions of limb functions after operations were evaluated.
Results: The compliance of patients in the observation group was significantly higher than that in the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). The first-time off-bed activity time of patients of the observation group was earlier than that of the control group. The wound recovery condition of the observation group 7 days after operation was better compared to that of the control group, and the difference between two groups two weeks after operation was not statistically significant. The Hospital for special surgery knee (HSS) score and evaluation result of range of motion (ROM) of knees of the observation group were both better than those of the control group in different periods after operation, and the differences were statistically significant (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Comprehensive rehabilitation training combined with MMA can improve the compliance of patients and help patients off bed earlier, and remarkably promote the early recovery of knee functions; hence it deserves to be promoted clinically.
