BACKGROUND The treatment of a malignant bone tumor in the distal aspect of the femur often requires great sacrifice of bone and muscle. The extent of quadriceps removal has been reported to influence the long-term functional efficiency of a patient's gait. The objective of the present study was to determine gait function as it relates to the residual quadriceps strength and to the specific component or components of the quadriceps removed in patients treated with total knee replacement because… CONTINUE READING
