The following procedures were performed on 23 patients (15 of them males): a shoulder strength isokinetic evaluation of the internal (IR) and external (ER) rotators (with the shoulder 45 degrees and 90 degrees abducted in the frontal plane), a passive range of motion measurement, a Rowe score and a scanner exam. These patients had previously undergone open coracoid transposition using Latarjet's technique according to two different surgical procedures: a tenotomy (n = 6) or a splitting (n = 17) of the subscapularis muscle approach. In our retrospective study, the period of time between surgery and assessment was an average of 30 months. The average Rowe score was 89 on a scale of 100, with a good pattern of passive mobility. The isokinetic data showed an external rotator weakness (in all testing conditions), most notably at 60 degrees/s in 45 degrees of abduction position (p < 0.001 - 12.2%). By contrast, the internal rotators were only significantly (p < 0.05) impaired (8.2%) at 60 degrees/s in the 90 degrees of abduction position. Consequently, the external/internal rotator ratio (ERAR) was reduced in the 45 degrees of abduction installation only, highlighting the influence of testing position on the isokinetic results and therefore on the shoulder muscle profile. Surgical technique comparison revealed that only the tenotomy procedure entailed an IR deficit (17%) measured at 45 degrees of abduction installation. Shoulders (n = 5) presenting a fatty degeneration of the subscapularis muscle >= stage II (corresponding exclusively to the tenotomy surgical approach) showed an internal rotator weakness (19%) measured in 45 degrees of abduction. Patients (n = 13) without subscapularis fatty degradation (corresponding solely to the horizontal splitting approach) did not develop any impairment of strength in internal rotators. Furthermore, no correlation between mobility pattern and strength impairment was observed in the study. [less ▲]

Objective. To establish the inter-session reproducibility of isokinetic concentric strength and fatigue profile of the elbow flexors and extensors in sedentary women. Methods. Forty healthy women who were physically inactive or engaged in recreational sports were included in the study. Strength was evaluated at 60 and 180 degrees/s. The fatigue protocol consisted of 30 maximal-intensity elbow flexion and extension at 180 degrees/s. Results. The extensors were stronger than flexors while no dominance effect was apparent. In addition the work output of the extensors during the fatigue protocol was larger than the flexors', the previous being more fatigue resistant. A dominance effect was observed for the extensors in the fatiguing protocol. Reproducibility expressed by the coefficient of variation was less or equal to 11%. Conclusions. This study highlights satisfactory reproducibility of isokinetic strength and fatigue parameters. The values derived may be useful for interpretation of clinical tests or characterization of pathological states in women with similar characteristics. [less ▲]

Objectives: To explore the role of muscular strength and imbalance as predisposing factors in the development of anterior knee pain syndrome (AKPS). Methods: 96 male military recruits without history of knee pain volunteered for the study. Each volunteer underwent an isokinetic test prior to the start of a strenuous training program (approximately 8 to 12 hours/day for 6 weeks). The isokinetic test consisted of concentric contractions of the knee flexors and extensors at 60degrees/s and 240degrees/s. A detailed history and clinical examination of the patellofemoral joint was performed on each recruit. Independent sample t-tests were used to compare the isokinetic muscle parameters in recruits who developed AKPS during the training (pathological group) and in those who did not (control group). Binary logistic regression analysis was used to define the predictive outcome of anthropometrics and the isokinetic parameters for the development of AKPS. Results: 31 recruits developed AKPS. Absolute and bodyweight normalized peak extensor torque at 60degrees/s was significantly lower in the pathological group in comparison to the control group. Significant lower peak torque/BMI (Body Mass Index) were also indicated at both velocities. Recruits who developed AKPS had a shorter stature. No regression model could be set up to give any predictive value to the analyzed parameters. Conclusions: Recruits with shorter stature and lower quadriceps strength are more prone to develop AKPS during BMT. However, as the etiology of AKPS is multifactorial these parameters alone may not suffice to predict the occurrence of this pathology. On the other hand, the results of this study emphasize the importance of the reinforcement of quadriceps strength in the treatment and prevention of AKPS. [less ▲]

Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) follows unaccustomed muscular exercise, most notably in the eccentric mode. That concept refers to a dull ache combined with tenderness, stiffness and weakness of the previously active muscles. lsokinetic device constitutes a specific model in generating and investigating DOMS. Respective effects of concentric and eccentric actions have been compared, emphasizing on the variability in the response (serum activity of CK for instance). The particular sensitivity of the hamstrings was underlined although causes remained unexplained. Some treatment have been proposed in the management of DOMS. Several studies reported that anti-inflammatory agents fail to alleviate pain and discomfort even if other authors indicated a relative effectiveness. Based on the repeated-bout effect, submaximal eccentric exercise currently represent the most useful preventive strategy. [less ▲]
