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.
