We studied motor recovery as shown by locomotor activities after arthroscopic partial medial meniscectomies in seventeen men who were twenty-five to forty-nine years old. The patients were evaluated before the operation and two, four, and eight weeks after the operation. Control values were obtained from twenty-two healthy men whose ages, weights, and(More)
After arthroscopic meniscectomy the relationship between the magnitude of knee extensor strength deficits and locomotor performance during stair ascent unloaded and when carrying a 22 kg load has been tested in 31 patients. The specific locomotor adaptations related to large strength deficits were also studied. The results indicate that large deficits were(More)
The relationship between the type of meniscal lesion (bucket-handle, flap or degenerative tears) and preoperative knee function (5.1 +/- 6.2 days before arthroscopic meniscectomy) was studied in 35 patients. Patients with bucket-handle tears (group B, n = 12) had large knee extension work deficits during maximal voluntary contractions at 30 degrees and 180(More)
Intertrial reliability of work measurements was studied in 19 men with a partial medial meniscal tear (ME group) and in 10 men with no history of knee injury (control group). Three maximal voluntary concentric contractions of the muscles involved in knee extension (KE) and knee flexion (KF) were performed on a dynamometer at 30 degrees and 180 degrees/s(More)
