This article is from Journal of Physical Therapy Science, volume 26.AbstractPurpose The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between clinical parameters, radiological staging and evaluated ultrasound results of quadriceps muscle thickness in knee osteoarthritis. Subjects The current study comprised 75 patients 51 female, 24 male with a mean age of 57.9±5.2 years range 40–65 years and a diagnosis of osteoarthritis in both knees. Methods Knee radiographs were evaluated according to the Kellgren-Lawrence grading system. Clinical evaluation performed with the visual analog scale VAS, Western Ontario and McMaster Osteoarthritis Index WOMAC, the 50-meter walking test, and the 10-step stair test. The thickness of the muscle layer of the quadriceps femoris M. vastus intermedius and M. rectus femoris was measured with high-resolution real-time ultrasonography. Results The results of this study showed a significant negative correlation between quadriceps thickness and age, duration of disease, stage of knee OA, and VAS, WOMAC, 50-m walking test, and 10-step stair test scores. Conclusion The evaluation of quadriceps muscle thickness with ultrasound can be considered a practical and economical method in the diagnosis and follow-up of knee osteoarthritis.
