14] Edema and fatty infiltration scores were calculated in the gluteus maximus and thigh muscles (vastus intermedius, vastus medialis, vastus lateralis, rectus femoris, biceps femoris, semitendinosus, semimembranosus, adductor magnus, sartorius, long adductor, and gracilis).
It was also hypothesized that due to reduced assistance from the contralateral leg in the recovery phase, there would be increased muscle activation in the rectus femoris and biceps femoris during IC cycling compared to NC cycling as external load is increased.
176, respectively; 2) 30 min after administration of 1 mL of 1 mol/L N-isopropyl oxamate injected in biceps femoris muscle, the concentration of N-isopropyl oxamate in blood was 0.

Case 1 showing injuries involving the popliteus tendon and popliteofibular ligament, the fabellofibular ligament, the biceps femoris tendon.
Biceps femoris showed no significant difference at times T1, T2 and T3, as well as at times IR and FR of the four sessions, both for DG and HG.
Next, the regions of interest (ROI) were defined on the T2 images of each portion proximal (Figure 1), medial, and distal of the following muscles: gluteus maximus, biceps femoris (long head), vastus lateralis, and rectus femoris.
Adaptive potential of human biceps femoris muscle demonstrated by histochemical, immunohistochemical and mechanomyographical methods.
Once habituated, surface EMG (sEMG) electrodes were placed on the participants' right lower erector spinae, rectus abdominis, biceps femoris, gastrocnemius and rectus femoris muscles, as detailed in studies by Silfies et al.
A Posterior knee pain can result from a number of issues, such as injury to one or more muscles and tendons that connect to the back of the knee: the biceps femoris tendon (a hamstring tendon); the popliteus muscle/tendon, which rotates the shin bone (tibia); and the gastrocnemius tendon, which connects the calf muscle to the back of the knee.
It turns around the biceps femoris muscle and passes through the peroneal tunnel between the insertion of the peroneus longus muscle and the fibula.
In terms of some of the more frequently biopsied muscles, type 2 fiber predominance would then be defined as approximately more than 55% in the biceps femoris, more than 70% in the biceps brachii, more than 73% in the vastus lateralis, and more than 59% in the deltoid.
Nociceptive flexor reflex, recorded after sural nerve stimuli was in a continuous pattern in anterior tibial (AT), biceps femoris, and lumbar paraspinal (LP) muscles, was recorded by four consecutive stimulations administered from the foot base (Figure 1 a).
However, deep palpation between the iliotibial tract, on the proximal head of the fibula, and the biceps femoris elicited mild tenderness.
Superficial electrodes (biopac electrode) determined the puffy region of biceps femoris (BF) and quadriceps by checking with hands, and were placed lengthwise over the muscle surface with 2 cm spacing.
