 en Prevention Of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries In Skiers
Tudor, Anton; Legović, Dalen; Roth, Šandor & Prpić, Tomislav

Abstract

Epidemiology and mechanisms of injury of anterior cruciate ligament in skiers are unique and mostly different from others sports. Although skiing injury rate in general has virtually decreased over the last four decades, at the same time, the rate of the knee, particularly anterior cruciate ligament injury has dramatically increased. Nowadays, it is estimated that half of all money spending for medical treating of all skiing injuries are going for the treating anterior cruciate ligament rupture.

Correctly adjusted bindings and adequate educational program which is focused on prevention of the knee injury can significantly reduce skier’s knee. The elementary strategy of the education is to prepare every skier to recognize and adequately respond when find herself/ himself in typical mechanism of a high risk fall, potentially dangerous for anterior cruciate ligament injury.

 hr Prevencija Ozljeda Prednje Ukrižene Sveze U Skijaša
Tudor, Anton; Legović, Dalen; Roth, Šandor & Prpić, Tomislav


Učestalost kao i mehanizam ozljede prednje ukrižene sveze u skijaša jedinstveni su i uglavnom različiti od ostalih sportova. Premda je posljednjih četiri desetljeća učestalost skijaških ozljeda u opadanju, istovremeno je učestalost ozljede koljena, posebno prednje ukrižene sveze, u dramatičnom porastu. Danas se procjenjuje da se od sredstava utrošenih za liječenje svih skijaških ozljeda polovica troši na liječenje rupture prednje ukrižene sveze.

Ispravno prilagođeni vezovi, uz odgovarajući edukacijski program usmjeren na prevenciju ozljede prednje ukrižene sveze, mogu značajno smanjiti učestalost skijaške ozljede koljena. U osnovi je edukacije skijaša naučiti ih kako prepoznati i pravilno reagirati kada se nađu u potencijalno opasnoj situaciji koja može rezultirati takvom ozljedom.
