Hamstring Muscle Activity After Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction-A Protective Mechanism in Those Who Do Not Sustain a Secondary Injury? A Preliminary Study.

Summary of "Hamstring Muscle Activity After Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction-A Protective Mechanism in Those Who Do Not Sustain a Secondary Injury? A Preliminary Study."

Individuals who experience a subsequent ipsilateral anterior crucoate ligament (ACL) reinjury may use hazardous muscle activation strategies after primary ACL reconstruction (ACLR). The purpose of this study was to compare electromyograms (EMGs) of the quadriceps, hamstrings, and gastrocnemius muscles during a dynamic hopping task among individuals with a single ACL injury (ACLx1), individuals who went on to have secondary ipsilateral ACL injury (ACLx2), and individuals who have never sustained an ACL injury (ACLx0).

Allograft Augmentation of Hamstring Anterior Cruciate Ligament Autografts Is Associated With Increased Graft Failure in Children and Adolescents.

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in adolescents is commonly performed with hamstring tendon autografts. Small graft diameter is one risk factor for graft failure and options to upsize t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rebuilding of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT to restore functional stability of the knee. AUTOGRAFTING or ALLOGRAFTING of tissues is often used.

Sprain or tear injuries to the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT of the knee.

A strong ligament of the knee that originates from the posteromedial portion of the lateral condyle of the femur, passes anteriorly and inferiorly between the condyles, and attaches to the depression in front of the intercondylar eminence of the tibia.

Rebuilding of the POSTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT to restore functional stability of the knee.

An instrument used to assess the results of rehabilitation from knee injuries, especially those requiring ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTION. It measures recovery of knee joint function based on ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING.
