This study investigated the effects of passive warming on the biomechanical properties of the musculotendinous unit. Paired tibialis anterior (TA) and extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscles in the rabbit hindlimb were passively heated to different temperatures and then subjected to controlled strain injury. The parameters examined were: 1) percent increase(More)
The purpose of this paper is to describe in detail the shoulder myology of the La Plata River Dolphin, Pontoporia blainvillei, and to review the literature on cetacean shoulder myology. Three fetal and one adult animal were used for the collection of morphological information. Pontoporia is less specialized in its shoulder anatomy that most delphinid(More)
UNLABELLED The trapezius muscle plays a crucial role in maintaining proper shoulder mechanics and is often considered a source of weakness and dysfunction in patients. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the activation patterns of the middle and lower trapezius during four prone horizontal abduction exercises of the glenohumeral joint(More)
The axial muscular system of Pontoporia blainvillei is described and compared with published reports of this system in other cetaceans. A comprehensive system for classification of axial muscles is presented, based on the studies of Slijper. A discrete obliquus capitis inferior is described for the first time in cetacea, and it is suggested that its absence(More)
