14] Edema and fatty infiltration scores were calculated in the gluteus maximus and thigh muscles (vastus intermedius, vastus medialis, vastus lateralis, rectus femoris, biceps femoris, semitendinosus, semimembranosus, adductor magnus, sartorius, long adductor, and gracilis).
1] When compared to individuals with low Q-angle (LQ-angle <15[degrees]), asymptomatic individuals with high Q-angle (HQ-angle [greater than or equal to]15[degrees]) displayed anatomical cross-sectional areas of the vastus medialis and lateralis that were approximately 10% smaller when using the Q-angle as an estimate of quadriceps muscle disorientation.
1,3,4] Musculus vastus medialis obliquus (VMO) and vastus lateralis are the most important dynamic forces having an effect on patella at the last 30 degrees of the knee extension.
Vastus medialis obliquus (VMO) was advanced & sutured to lateral border of patella & quadriceps, after locating patella in trochlear notch in 70[degrees] flexion.
The graft was passed between the second and third layers of the medial side of a knee by identifying the space between the vastus medialis and the capsule.
An MRI scan of the right thigh, however, revealed extensive periosteal and bone marrow edema, multilocular small periosteal-based fluid-collections throughout the femoral shaft, and extensive edematous changes in the soft tissues of the thigh, predominantly in the vastus medialis and biceps femoris muscles (Figure 1).
There was hollowing noted in the supra-medial aspect of the left knee indicating wasting of the vastus medialis.
2012) were placed on the following left lower limb muscles: Gluteus Medius, Tensor Fasciae Latae, Rectus Femoris, Vastus medialis, Vastus lateralis, Biceps Femoris, Tibialis Anterior and Gastrocnemius (Lateral Subdivision), and the reference electrode was placed on the left lateral malleolus.
Surface EMG signals concurrently with the isokinetic test were recorded from the vastus lateralis, vastus medialis, long head of biceps femoris and medial hamstring muscles of dominant leg.
They compared the root mean square (RMS) of muscles vastus lateralis, rectus femoris and vastus medialis during the knee flexion and extension in an isokinetic device at 60[degrees]/s without KT and non-elastic adhesive tape (kinesiotex gold[R]).
Muscle recruitment pattern for vastus medialis oblique muscle: a systematic review
Repeat as above, with the addition of turning your foot and knee outwards slightly to engage the vastus medialis (part of the quadricep muscle of the thigh).
