Electromyographic evaluation of the midvastus approach.

Abstract

Compared with the standard median parapatellar approach, the muscle-splitting midvastus approach to the knee has led to claims of an easier and earlier recovery after total knee arthroplasty, but some investigators have questioned whether the midvastus approach damages the vastus medialis obliquus. We used electromyographic and nerve conduction studies to… (More)
