Sagittal knee kinematics after rectus femoris transfer without hamstring lengthening


, : Sagittal knee kinematics after rectus femoris transfer without hamstring lengthening. Journal of Pediatric Orthopedics 26(2): 265-267

The purpose of this study was to assess the sagittal knee kinematics of rectus femoris transfer without hamstring lengthening. A retrospective review of seventeen children (29 knees) was performed. Gait analysis was performed prior to surgery and repeated at a minimum of one year after surgery. Sagittal knee kinematics were analyzed. Stance minimum knee flexion increased 7 degrees; swing maximum knee flexion increased 5 degrees; and swing minimum knee flexion increased 5 degrees. The present study confirmed previously reported increases in swing maximum knee flexion. Increases in stance minimum knee flexion and swing minimum knee flexion were also found. These findings have not been previously reported.
