To elucidate the location of motor entry points (MEPs) and intramuscular nerve endings of the hamstring muscles. We dissected 50 cadaveric lower extremities to identify the MEPs, where the nerve branch first pierced the muscle belly, and the proximal and distal limit points (PLPs and DLPs, respectively) of the terminal intramuscular nerve endings. These points were measured in relation to a reference line, expressed in x-coordinate, which connected the superior medial aspect of ischial… CONTINUE READING
