Salvini2 Abstract Objectives: The purpose of this study was to investigate the contributions of functional and morphological factors in the recovery of the quadriceps muscle after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.
Methods: Nine subjects (31.3±5.8 years) underwent eccentric exercise sessions twice a week for 12 weeks.
Quadriceps muscle function was evaluated using an isokinetic dynamometer (isometric and eccentric peak torque) and electromyography (RMS).
Morphological changes were measured using magnetic resonance imaging. Results: The initial evaluation showed a significant deficit in knee extensor torque in the involved limb and signif...
