Snapping biceps femoris tendon: A dynamic real-time sonographic evaluation.
Summary of "Snapping biceps femoris tendon: A dynamic real-time sonographic evaluation."
Snapping of the distal arms of the biceps femoris tendon may explain pain and discomfort at the lateral aspect of the knee. We report two cases in which dynamic sonography was able to confirm the diagnosis and document which of the main arms was involved in the process. (c) 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A band of fibrous tissue that attaches the apex of the PATELLA to the lower part of the tubercle of the TIBIA. The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.
Ultrasonography, Doppler, Duplex
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect combined with real-time imaging. The real-time image is created by rapid movement of the ultrasound beam. A powerful advantage of this technique is the ability to estimate the velocity of flow from the Doppler shift frequency.
The quadriceps femoris. A collective name of the four-headed skeletal muscle of the thigh, comprised of the rectus femoris, vastus intermedius, vastus lateralis, and vastus medialis.
Inflammation of the synovial lining of a tendon sheath. Causes include trauma, tendon stress, bacterial disease (gonorrhea, tuberculosis), rheumatic disease, and gout. Common sites are the hand, wrist, shoulder capsule, hip capsule, hamstring muscles, and Achilles tendon. The tendon sheaths become inflamed and painful, and accumulate fluid. Joint mobility is usually reduced.
Surgical procedure by which a tendon is incised at its insertion and placed at an anatomical site distant from the original insertion. The tendon remains attached at the point of origin and takes over the function of a muscle inactivated by trauma or disease.
Snapping knee associated with biceps femoris tendon that caused lateral knee pain is reported. The long head of the biceps femoris tendon had an anomalous tibial insertion in addition to the direct ar...
Snapping biceps femoris syndrome is an uncommon cause of lateral knee pain and may be difficult to diagnose, resulting in unsuccessful surgical intervention. In this report, we present an unusual case...
Ruptures of the adductor muscles, the m. rectus femoris or the m. biceps femoris are sports injuries which need quick and reliable diagnostic management. Treatment of muscle injuries is mostly conserv...
Authors present a case of rupture of the distal end of the biceps femoris. Injuries at this site are relatively rare. Clinical assessment can be aided by instrumental examinations such as ultrasound a...
Isolated avulsions involving the tendon of the biceps femoris muscle are rare injuries. Injury patterns are similar to those of posterolateral knee injuries mostly due to hyperextension and external r...
The investigaotors want to establish a real-time and computerized score reporting system based on the significant predictors of the measured sonographic parameters and demographic data.
To prospectively assess the healing process following suture of profound fexor tendon due to traumatic rupture of FDP-Tendon in Zone II by ultrasound.
The purpose of this randomized clinical trial is to determine the difference in quality of life outcome at two years, in patients undergoing an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruct...
At this point in time the approach to the diagnosis of rotator cuff tendon tears is not consensual. The French surgeons, considering they have a good experience of this method, preferably...
To review the influence of patient derived PRGF on the healing process of Achilles tendon after a surgical correction of a complete tear.
