The distal branch arose from the radial margin of the MN 5.2 cm proximal to the WFC (0.5 cm proximal to the FDS myotendinous junction
Impairment of the myotendinous junction
and tendons distinguishes orbital myositis from thyroid ophthalmopathy.
The results of this study indicate that healthy, classically-trained ballet students have lower calf endurance as measured by total work performed on the heel-rise test and shorter Achilles tendons from the calcaneal insertion to the gastrocnemius myotendinous junction
Normally, the myotendinous junction
of plantaris occurs approximately at the level of origin of soleus muscle from tibia in the proximal part of leg, the long tendon passes between the medial head of gastrocnemius and soleus, continues along the medial aspect of tendocalcaneus for its insertion on calcaneum either independently or in association with tendocalcaneum, Andreo A Spina DC.
Muscle damage related to indirect injury (e.g., eccentric contraction where the muscle is contracting as it is forced to stretch) is far more prevalent and most commonly occurs at the myotendinous junction
First-degree strains show hemorrhage at the myotendinous junction
. There is also a feathery pattern of edema that runs from the myotendinous junction
along the muscle fascicles.
The myotendinous junction occurs approximately at the level of the origin of the soleus muscle from the tibia in the proximal portion of the lower leg.
An abnormally high signal intensity may be seen both within, and adjacent to the muscular fibers of the plantaris muscle at the level of the knee joint, or at the myotendinous junction on T2-weighted images.
It is readily appreciated as a triangular structure having the soleus muscle as its base and the medial and lateral bellies of the gastrocnemius as it sides.10 While utilizing the transducer in a transverse fashion it is possible to follow the muscle from its most proximal attachment on the lateral femoral condyle, down to the myotendinous junction at the level of the fibular head.
