Among these, rheumatoid arthritis is a well-known cause of popliteal cysts, since inflammation and synovial proliferation can destroy the unidirectional valve mechanism between the medial head of the gastrocnemius muscle and semimembranosus muscle
The secondary site in both instances was the semimembranosus muscle
. As previously mentioned, 5 of 30 cases of hamstring injury reported in this study involved the short head of biceps femoris.
The carcass composition and carcass characteristics were not significantly different in Longissimus and Semimembranosus muscle
by feeding soybean oil and whole cotton seed compared with the control treatment.
Both cases presented with unilateral pyomyositis involving the thigh and semimembranosus muscles
, respectively, and occurred in immunocompetent patients [2, 3].
(2001) worked on the sensory analysis in Longissimus dorsi and Semimembranosus muscles
in the genotypes of Awassi, Red Karaman, Tushin and Awassi X Tushin.
A popliteal cyst, which is a distension of the bursa existing between the gastrocnemius and the semimembranosus muscles
, is a representative of this type of bursa developing as a result of the check-valve mechanism [2, 11].
Similarly the piriformis (Hollinshead, 1969, Moore, 1985; Romanes, 1964; Testut, 1899; Williams et al., 1995), obturator internus (Testut, 1899), semitendinosus and semimembranosus muscles
(Bergman et al, 1984; Le Double, 1884) have also been described as attaching to the sacrotuberous ligament (Figure 3 and 4).
Effect of pH (24), NaCl content and proteolysis index on the relationship between water content and texture parameters in biceps femoris and semimembranosus muscles
in dry-cured ham.
Relationships between biochemical characteristics and meat quality of longissimusc thoracis and semimembranosus muscles
in five porcine lines.
Additionally, a high level of dietary Se (2.5 mg Se/kg diet) had no significant effects on FA concentrations in longissimus dorsi and semimembranosus muscles
of Merino lambs (Liu et al., 2011).
The colour and colour stability of beef longissimus dorsi and semimembranosus muscles
after effective electrical stimulation.
Relationships between biochemical characteristics and meat quality of Longissimus thoracis and Semimembranosus muscles
