Clinical and Functional Comparison between Anatomical and Non-Anatomical Acute Repair of Tears of the Distal Tendon of Biceps Brachii

SUMMARY Aim. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the anatomical reconstruction on the radial tuberosity could be superior to the non-anatomical repair by tenodesis on brachialis, in terms of clinical outcomes and isokinetic evaluation to treat distal biceps brachii tendon ruptures. Methods. We retrospectively evaluated 36 patients at the final follow up; … Continued

Reliability of an isometric and isokinetic strength testing protocol of the knee and ankle in young adults

Background. Isokinetic dynamometers are becoming very common in assessing muscle strength and pathology, both in research and clinical practice, but for most of those devices reliability studies are still needed to support their extended use. The aim of this study is to assess the test-retest reliability also in health adults. Methods. Thirty adults (13 male … Continued
