Isokinetic strength profile of subjects with proximal patellar tendinopathy

Background. Proximal patellar tendinopathy is relatively common among sportsmen. However, the strength profile of subjects with proximal patellar tendinopathies is poorly described. Purpose. We aimed to determine the isokinetic strength profile in order to estimate the difference of muscular performance between the healthy and pathological limbs of subjects suffering of this chronic pathology. Study design. … Continued

Evolution of isokinetic strength and return to sport after proximal hamstring rupture without surgical repair: a retrospective series of cases

Introduction. Proximal ruptures of hamstrings are rare. Their evolution in absence of surgery is relatively unknown. We aimed to describe the evolution of patients with non-operated proximal hamstring ruptures, in terms of strength recovery, self-satisfaction and return to sport. Methods. We included retrospectively 16 patients addressed for isokinetic strength evaluation of the hamstrings after non-operated … Continued
