Results

42  patellar tendons and 42 quadriceps tendon were examined.

For each tendon, the results of ratio between the two ROI were compared

using the t-test.

 

In passive extension the elasticity of the patellar tendon was significantly lower (p<0.001) than in passive flexion.

 

In passive extension the elasticity of the quadriceps tendon was significantly lower (p<0.005) than in passive flexion.

 

No differences between right and left sides were evident.
