Our findings also indicated time-dependent decreases in SFI values due to sciatic nerve degeneration and gastrocnemius
muscle atrophy in the axotomy groups compared to the control group.
Total RNA was extracted and isolated from gastrocnemius
and soleus muscles using TRIsure reagent (Bioline, United Kingdom).
However, we observed no additional effect of electrical stimulation to the gastrocnemius
muscle after BTX-A injection which was administered to the gastrocnemius
and soleus muscles in this patient population.

Data for the three factors were needed to understand the muscle contraction and fatigability of the gastrocnemius
muscle for each treatment concentration.
Anatomic basis of the gastrocnemius
After sampling, the gastrocnemius
and lower right lung specimens were immediately weighed to gain wet weight, then samples were dried at a temperature of 80[degrees]C for 48 hours, and the dry weight were measured.

Surface EMG profiles of the gastrocnemius
are shown in Figure 8(b).
Specifically, thigh IMAT or calf IMAT (standardized to CSA) and soleus IMAT or gastrocnemius
IMAT (standardized to MT) were regressed against glucose, insulin, HOMA-IR, TG, TC, LDL, HDL, and TC : HDL.
In this study, 70 patients with gastrocnemius
spasticity of grade 3 were recruited.
The obese animals (SED-O and RT-O) had a lower tissue weight (P<0.05) for the four muscles analyzed (brachioradial, tibialis anterior, gastrocnemius
, and soleus) compared to the lean heterozygous animals (SED-L and RT -L).
