Beeinflussen Meniskusverletzungen die posturale Stabilität und kann diese durch Bandagen verbessert werden?
Meniscal lesions are known to cause a loss of proprioception, which plays an important role in the regulation of postural stability. The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of meniscal lesions on postural stability. Further we investigate the influence of knee braces of postural stability. In this prospective study, postural stability was assessed by posturography in 27 patients with unilateral meniscal lesions. It was surprising to note that the loss of proprioception in patients with meniscus injuries did not influence postural stability in a stable level. The use of knee braces improves the postural stability significantly.
