Table 3 Muscle strength and muscle volume

From: Unilateral-dominant reduction in muscle volume in female knee osteoarthritis patients: computed tomography-based analysis of bilateral sides

  Operated side Contralateral side Difference (%) P value
Muscle strength (N) 0.52 ± 0.22* 0.61 ± 0.25 −10.14 ± 25.18 P = 0.001
% Muscle strength to body weight (% BW) 28.78 ± 9.71* 33.62 ± 11.57 P = 0.001
Muscle volume (cm3) 77.95 ± 13.11* 83.03 ± 12.09 −6.0 ± 8.9 P = 0.001
