The Sitting (tahiyyat) position consists of sitting on the floor with lumbar and thoracic spine in neutral position, hip joint in flexion and knee joint in full flexion, and may last up to 30-60 seconds.14 This results in a stretching of the quadriceps femoris muscle. The hands are placed on the distal aspect of anterior thigh, with shoulders flexed and elbows extended though full extension is not present, along with slight extension at the wrists.

In the study, the authors found that the quadriceps femoris muscle weakness after the injection of 0.125% bupivacaine was comparable for the initial 12 h in both the FNB and adductor canal block (ACB) groups.
In addition, the entire quadriceps femoris muscle, the target tissue with the site of injection, from the treated left hind limb (containing the marked area of injection site), and the untreated right hind limb from all animals (control and 3 dose groups at 48 hours, 28 days, and 63 days after treatment) were collected in formalin for fixation, histologic processing, and microscopic examination.
Additionally, there was a decreased of muscular deep sensitivity and decreased muscular tonus of the tensor fasciae latae muscle and quadriceps femoris muscle. In the palpation, there was a reduction of the quadriceps femoris muscle volume.

The purpose of the present study was to examine 10 goitrous patients diagnosed as HT by thyroid biopsy, in order to relate the clinical study with laboratory results and the histological and ultrastructural findings in the quadriceps femoris muscle and to try to disclose if muscle alterations can be related to hormonal action and/or to autoimmunity.
