The clinical and electromyographic examination of musculi quadriceps femoris is performed in 13 patients with extension contractures of the knee joints. The correlation between the pronounced hypotrophy, hypertension and denervational process stage in the muscle is revealed. The pathophysiological mechanisms of the formation of hypertension of the muscles in passive contracture are considered.
