Bone fracture during electrical stimulation of the quadriceps in a spinal cord injured subject.

Abstract

We report a fracture through the lateral femoral condyle of a paraplegic subject caused by electrical stimulation (ES). The subject was a 50-year-old man who 4 years earlier had sustained a complete spinal cord injury (SCI) at level T6. The fracture occurred during ES-induced measurement of maximal isometric torque of the quadriceps with the knee flexed at… (More)
