Abstract: Introduction. Anterior cruciate ligament injuries are one of the most common injuries of the knee, with an incidence of approximately 85 per 100 000 in patients aged between 16 and 39 years [1]. Rates of return to sport at 2 years after ACLR range from 41% to 83%, depending on age and competition level [2]. In addition, psychological factors and their impact on recovery, rehabilitation, and return to sport have received more attention in recent years [6]. Research aim – to assess functional outcomes of the knee and the degree of psychological confidence in patients 6 months after ACL reconstruction. Research methods and organization. We have investigated 54 (24 women and 30 men) physically active patients after six months of ACL reconstruction. The average age of women was 23,25 ± 5,42 years, men - 24,97 ± 7,09 years. The patients were distributed into two groups: non – contact injury (I group, n=38 (17 women and 21 men)) and contact injury (II group, n=16 (7 women and 9 men)). Compare gender results between groups statistically significant difference was not found (p=1). The average age of first group was 22,63 ± 4,34 years, height – 182, 75 ± 12,31 cm, weight – 77,75 ± 17,37 kg and BMI – 22,99 ± 2,69. The average age of second group was 24,87 ± 7,05 years, height – 180,16 ± 10,95 cm, weight – 79,08 ± 12,83 kg and BMI – 24,3 ± 2,97. Compare these results between groups statistically significant difference was not found. Physical function was assessed by single – leg hop tests and the degree of psychological confidence was assessed by anterior cruciate ligament return to sport after injury scale (ACL – RSI). Data was presented as means ± standard deviation. The statistical analysis was performed using “IBM SPSS Statistics 22.0“. The nonparametric Mann-Whitney test was used for comparison of two independent samples. To compare two dependent samples, the nonparametric Wilcoxon [...]
