The purpose of this case was to assess the isokinetic strength adaptations of eccentric knee flexors (eccKF) and concentric knee extensors (conKE) in a professional male soccer player during anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rehabilitation. Progress was monitored relative to a noninjured control group. Isokinetic strength assessments were initiated 18 weeks post ACL reconstruction and comprised assessments at eight angular velocities between 60–270°·s−1. The assessments ceased at the point where the player was cleared for return to play by his club 6 months after reconstructive surgery. The results identified that conKE peak torque of the treatment limb and eccKF peak torque of both lower limbs demonstrated meaningful changes. In addition, the eccKF angle of peak torque also demonstrated meaningful change that occurred at increased knee extension. The inclusion of additional angular velocities and angle-specific measures provide new insight into rehabilitation and return to play.

Thus, the aim of this case study was to implement the CEUS quantification in monitoring of muscle injuries and to demonstrate the revascularization of an intramuscular lesion during the different healing phases.

A rare injury in collegiate athletics is the Lisfranc fracture-dislocation of the foot. This case study will give team physicians and athletic trainers an idea of what to look for in this type of injury. It will be shown how an 18-year-old college football player received the injury, how it was evaluated by the sports medicine staff, and how it was surgically treated by the team physician. Finally, the athlete's rehabilitation will be summarized and the time frame during which full activities were started again will be outlined. This case study will give sports medicine specialists a better understanding of the Lisfranc topic and how to deal with it.
