Abstract

Focused Clinical Question: Is there evidence to suggest that blood flow restriction (BFR) training improves strength, cross-sectional area, and thigh girth of the quadriceps musculature in patients after arthroscopic surgical procedures of the knee? Clinical Bottom Line: There is moderate consistent, but low-level, evidence supporting the use of BFR training to improve knee extensor muscular outcomes (strength, cross-sectional area, and/or thigh girth) immediately after arthroscopic knee surgery.
