The functional properties of latissimus dorsi (LTD) muscles were evaluated 160 to 180 days after tenotomy and repair, when grafts had stabilized. Our hypothesis was that, compared with control LTD muscles, LTD grafts would develop less absolute force and power but that the specific force and normalized power would not differ. Expressed as a percentage of the value for control LTD muscles, values for grafts were 67% for muscle mass, 74% for mean single fiber cross-sectional area, 56% for maximum… CONTINUE READING
