The degree of atrophy or hypertrophy of selected pelvic limb muscles was determined in the canine homologue of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. While most muscles were atrophied, the caudal and cranial sartorius were hypertrophied. Cranial sartorius weights were corrected for body weight and endomysial space to determine true muscle weights (g/kg; mean+/-SD) in three golden retriever muscular dystrophy age groups, 4-10 (Group 1; n=15), 13-26 (Group 2; n=4), and 33-66 (Group 3; n=4) months and… CONTINUE READING
