A Controlled Trial of Effectiveness of a Backward Walking Program in Patients Recovering From Abdominal Aorta Surgery
Summary Question: Does backward walking offer additional therapeutic value in patients after aortic aneurysm surgery? Participants: The study of backward walking as an addictive physiotherapy procedure was conducted in the group of 65 patients who underwent abdominal aorta surgery. The patients were randomly divided into three subgroups and three various models of physiotherapy were applied. Control group has only routine physiotherapy since therapeutic group I and II have also walking exercises forward in group I and backward in group II respectively.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
