  journal={Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy},
This case report describes a 20-year-old elite-level Australian Rules football player who suffered three unilateral hamstring injuries within a 2 month period. The first two episodes were managed conservatively. Magnetic resonance imaging following the third episode revealed full thickness disruption of the proximal musculotendinous junction of the biceps femoris long head and semitendinosus muscles and the common proximal (conjoint) tendon. The injury was subsequently surgically repaired. At… Expand
Avulsion of the Hamstring Muscle Group: A Follow-Up of 6 Adult Non-Athletes with Early Operative Treatment: A Brief Report
Early surgical intervention and subsequent therapy in a complete hamstring avulsion injury may prevent loss of hip-joint stability and prevent the sequalae of degradative hip or vertebral events. Expand
Total proximal hamstring ruptures: clinical and MRI aspects including guidelines for postoperative rehabilitation
Early surgery together with a specific rehabilitation program appears to be the treatment of choice for timely and safe return to sport and an active lifestyle for total proximal hamstring tendon ruptures. Expand
Hamstring strength and morphology progression after return to sport from injury.
Residual edema and deficits in isokinetic knee flexion strength were present at RTS but resolved during the subsequent 6 months, suggesting that neuromuscular factors may contribute to the return of strength. Expand
Biomechanical response to hamstring muscle strain injury.
It is concluded that hamstring strains during sprinting most likely occur during terminal swing as a consequence of an eccentric contraction. Expand
Patterns of Hamstring Muscle Tears in the General Population: A Systematic Review
A proportion of adults suffering grade 2 or 3 hamstring injuries from activities other than the classic sports trauma are highlighted, with the majority of these non-sporting injuries that clustered in older female and skeletally immature patients suggesting a potential link to bone mineral density. Expand
Hamstring muscle forces prior to and immediately following an acute sprinting-related muscle strain injury.
Results lend support to the paradigm that the hamstrings are most susceptible to muscle strain injury during the terminal swing phase of sprinting when they are contracting eccentrically. Expand

A vision is presented for how patient-specific multibody dynamic models can serve as the foundation for an objective treatment planning approach that identifies optimal treatments and treatment parameters on an individual patient basis. Expand


Surgical repair of complete proximal hamstring tendon ruptures in water skiers and bull riders: a report of four cases and review of the literature
Surgical repair restores the distorted anatomy, allows early functional rehabilitation, and avoids the potential debilitating neurological problem of gluteal sciatica. Expand
Surgical Repair of Complete Proximal Hamstring Tendon Rupture *
Satisfactory results can be achieved with both early and late hamstring tendon repairs in a majority of cases with surgical repair, and no difference between early andLate repairs was identified in regard to functional outcome or return to sport. Expand
Evaluation of the hamstring muscle complex following acute injury
Imaging can discriminate a hamstring tendon avulsion from musculotendinous strain and helps identify which patients necessitate surgical management as opposed to conservative treatment. Expand
Rupture of the Ischial Origin of the Hamstring Muscles
Unlike cases of bony avulsion of the ischial apophysis in growing children, acute complete rupture of the proximal hamstring muscles origin in adults should be treated with prompt surgery. Expand
Surgical Repair of Chronic Complete Hamstring Tendon Rupture in the Adult Patient
Surgical treatment in nine patients treated by late operative repair consisted of reattachment of the hamstring tendons to the origin on the ischium, and in all cases it was necessary to perform neurolysis of the sciatic nerve. Expand
Distal tears of the hamstring muscles: review of the literature and our results of surgical treatment
Surgical treatment seems to be beneficial in distal hamstring tears in selected cases, especially in events requiring sprinting and running. Expand
Distal rupture of the biceps femoris muscle
The 2 patients described both had a complete rupture of the femoral biceps tendon a few centimetres proximally to its insertion at caput fibulae, and both sustained the injury during a soccer game. Expand
Complete Rupture of the Distal Semimembranosus Complex in a Professional Athlete
A case of a complete rupture of the distal semimembranosus tendon complex occurring in a professional football player with resultant functional disability is reported here. Expand
Surgical treatment of partial tears of the proximal origin of the hamstring muscles
In most cases, excellent or good results can be expected after surgical repair of partial proximal hamstring tears even after conservative treatment has failed, according to retrospectively analysed cases between 1994 and 2005. Expand
Functional assessment after acute and chronic complete ruptures of the proximal hamstring tendons
Evaluating the functional status after primary and delayed surgical treatment including objective (isokinetic hamstring and quadriceps muscle testing, hamstring flexibility) and subjective parameters (overall satisfaction, postoperative sports level) found patients were satisfied with the functional outcome and would undergo operative treatment again.
