Knee arthrosis and its healing with pulsed magnet therapy in a test group of 40 patients. The results on this topic were evaluated after each underwent corrective osteotomy of the tibia and based on the strict conditions of a randomized double-blind study.
A total of 40 patients, as already mentioned, had undergone tibial osteotomy, an operation in which the bone is either shortened, lengthened or realigned, before starting therapy.
These patients were then divided into two groups for the purpose of the study – active and control. Finally, four orthopaedic surgeons unfamiliar with (independent of) the study and its conditions were asked to evaluate radiographs taken 60 days after surgery to determine the degree of healing in each patient. Individual cases were sorted into 4 categories, with the fourth category representing the most successful healing.
In the control group, 73.6% of patients were included in the 1. and category 2, whereas in the active group, which underwent pulsed magnetotherapy, the 72.2% of patients enrolled in 3. and category 4 (most successful healing).
Thus, in a homogeneous group of patients, pulsed magnet therapy has a very positive healing effect on patients with knee arthrosis who have undergone tibial surgery.
