Musculotendinous infraspinatus ruptures belong to the category of "muscle strain injuries". They differ from a classic rotator cuff tear by the following features: tendon attachment remains intact and the acute initial stage typically undergoes an intense muscular edema, replaced, 6 to 12 months later, by complete and permanent fatty infiltration ...

BACKGROUND: Latissimus dorsi tendon transfer is a well-established method for the treatment of massive irreparable posterosuperior defects of the rotator cuff. Subsequent rupture of the transferred tendon may contribute to the rate of failure of the index procedure. We hypothesized that modification of our technique of tendon harvesting would lead ...

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 ...
Jeon Suk Ha - - 2009
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 ...
El Shewy Mohamed Taha - - 2009
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 ...
Nich Christophe - - 2009
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 ...
