  1. This table shows entheseal thickness stratified by 10 kilogram intervals. The mean with standard deviations and interquartile ranges are reported. The minimum and maximum thickness (range) in each weight group is also reported.
  2. PPL= proximal patellar ligament insertion thickness, DPL=distal patellar ligament insertion thickness AT=Achilles tendon insertion thickness.
