Association Between Injury Mechanisms and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Findings in Rectus Femoris Injuries in 105 Professional Football Players
Thigh injuries are the most common muscle injuries in football. In professional football, 79% of all muscle injuries occur in the thigh, of which 19% are related to the quadriceps, predominantly in the rectus femoris muscle. Despite the prevalence of rectus femoris injuries and relatively high reinjury rate (up to 17%), the current literature on […]
Different effects of the lateral meniscus complete radial tear on the load distribution and transmission functions depending on the tear site.
Most of the load onto the tibiofemoral joint is transmitted through the menisci. The load distribution and transmission functions are pivotal roles of the meniscus for cartilage protection and joint preservation. Radial tear of the meniscus disrupts the integrity of the circumferential collagen fibers and has a detrimental effect on the load distribution and transmission […]
