Abstract

A termografia infravermelha (IR) tem sido cada vez mais utilizada como uma ferramenta não invasiva para monitorar a recuperação pós-cirúrgica em atletas de alto rendimento que passaram por cirurgia no ligamento cruzado anterior (LCA). Esta revisão exploratória teve como objetivo avaliar a literatura disponível sobre o uso da termografia IR para o monitoramento pós-cirúrgico em atletas de alto rendimento após a cirurgia do LCA. A revisão constatou que a termografia IR é uma ferramenta promissora para avaliar a recuperação pós-cirúrgica em atletas, pois permite uma avaliação mais objetiva e precisa da inflamação e do processo de cicatrização. Os resultados sugerem que a termografia IR pode identificar as mudanças de temperatura associadas à inflamação e cicatrização dos tecidos, permitindo que os clínicos monitorem a recuperação dos pacientes de forma mais precisa. Os benefícios potenciais da termografia IR para o monitoramento da recuperação pós-cirúrgica em atletas de alto rendimento são substanciais. A detecção precoce de inflamação e outras complicações pós-cirúrgicas pode permitir a intervenção imediata dos clínicos, reduzindo assim o risco de lesões adicionais ou complicações a longo prazo. Além disso, o uso de técnicas de imagem não invasivas, como a termografia IR, pode reduzir a necessidade de procedimentos invasivos repetidos e exposição à radiação. Em conclusão, embora a termografia IR seja uma ferramenta promissora para o monitoramento pós-cirúrgico em atletas de alto rendimento submetidos à cirurgia do LCA, mais pesquisas são necessárias para estabelecer sua eficácia e confiabilidade.
