ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT INJURY-INDUCED ALTERATIONS IN INFLAMMATION AND MUSCLE PHYSIOLOGY

Emily Hunt
Long term weakness and atrophy of the quadriceps muscle are a direct result of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries and persist for up to 10 years post injury. Muscle atrophy ensues regardless of ligamentous reconstruction surgery, indicating that muscle atrophy following injury is a function of the ligament rupture and not reconstruction surgery. Elucidating the mechanisms underlying quadriceps atrophy following ACL rupture is crucial for developing interventions to restore proper quadriceps size and mitigate weakness...
