Postfixation loosening within the Krackow stitch-tendon construct may be associated with gap formation in patellar tendon repair. Pretensioning the Krackow stitch-tendon construct decreases postfixation gap formation in transpatellar patellar tendon repair. Controlled laboratory study. Patellar tendon rupture was simulated in 8 pairs of cadaveric knees. Standard manual traction was used ...

In the surgical repair of Achilles tendon ruptures, suturing is standard, although fibrin glue also has been used for repair since the 1980s. Augmentation with the plantaris longus tendon is also a popular technique; however, no study has yet compared the outcome of augmented versus only glued repair of ruptured ...
Richardson David R - - 2009
Achilles tendinosis and chronic Achilles tendon ruptures are relatively frequently encountered by orthopaedic surgeons. One treatment for patients who fail to respond to conservative management involves augmentation of the repair with transfer of the flexor hallucis longus (FHL), using either a single-incision or double-incision technique. Despite the frequency of this ...

PURPOSE: The loop-tendon method for the stabilization of tendon transfers or grafts has been demonstrated previously to have greater initial tensile strength than that of the end-weave method. To our knowledge, a comparison of the mechanical strengths of these methods over the early postoperative period has not been made. The ...

Recurrent dislocation of the peroneal tendons following operative treatment is relatively uncommon, but can be difficult to treat. We asked whether subligamental transposition of the peroneus brevis tendon, fibular grooving, and reattachment of the superior peroneal retinaculum for failed peroneal tendon dislocation surgery would achieve a stable fixation of the ...

Percutaneous repair of Achilles tendon (AT) ruptures reportedly reduces the risk of rerupture compared to nonoperative treatment and reduces the risk of wound infection compared to open surgery. We retrospectively reviewed the postoperative Achilles tendon total rupture score (ATRS), and the maximum calf circumference in 35 patients over 65 years ...

BACKGROUND: Chronic rupture of the Achilles tendon is a surgical challenge, owing to the presence of a gap between the retracted ends, which renders direct repair almost impossible. PURPOSE: In this study, 2 intratendinous distally based flaps fashioned from the proximal gastrocnemiussoleus complex are used to bridge the gap between ...

Open repair of full-thickness tears of the rotator cuff generally improves function, although anatomic failures are not uncommon. We asked whether the presence or absence of an anatomic repair influenced outcomes. We retrospectively analyzed 47 patients (49 shoulders) treated by open proximalized reinsertion of the supraspinatus tendon for chronic retracted ...

AIM: The etiology, pathogenesis and natural course of Achilles tendinopathy are not yet completely known. Various forms of therapies, either conservative or surgical, have been proposed for its treatment. In the last few years, extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) has been proposed in the treatment of these tendinopathies and has shown ...

We prospectively analyzed and compared the functional and clinical results of patients with standard open and minimally invasive repair with the Achillon suture system at mid-term followup. From February 2004 to May 2007, 40 consecutive patients were operated for the treatment of acute Achilles tendon rupture with two different methods. ...
Pajala Ari - - 2009
BACKGROUND: Augmented and nonaugmented techniques have been used for the operative repair of a fresh complete Achilles tendon rupture. Augmented techniques have been favored for their stronger pullout strengths but have been avoided because of the risk of wound complications. If proven to be equally good, the nonaugmented technique would ...

Our objective was to evaluate the cell biology and biomechanical aspects of the healing process after two different techniques in open rotator cuff surgery - double-loaded bio-absorbable suture anchors combined with so-called arthroscopic Mason-Allen stitches (AAMA) and a trans-osseous suture technique combined with traditional modified Mason-Allen stitches (SMMA). Thirty-six mature ...

Chronic Achilles tendinopathy may require tendon transfer for treatment. Relatively few studies have reported the clinical outcome for flexor hallucis longus (FHL) transfer for chronic Achilles tendinopathy. Both single and double incision techniques have been reported. We present our series of a single incision technique. A retrospective study measured the ...
