Variation in the insertion of the latissimus dorsi & its clinical importance.

The latissimus dorsi is the larger, flat, dorso-lateral muscle on the trunk, posterior to the arm, and partly covered by the trapezius on its median dorsal region. Origin of the latissimus dorsi is fr...

Acute traumatic tear of latissimus dorsi muscle in an elite track athlete.

Soft tissue injuries constitute 30-50% of all sports related injuries; however, injury to the latissimus dorsi muscle is quite rare with only a few cases reported in the literature. Herein, we describ...

Latissimus dorsi tendon transfer for irreparable postero-superior cuff tears: current concepts, indications, and recent advances.

Latissimus dorsi tendon transfer is a method for surgical treatment of massive irreparable posterosuperior cuff tears. It partially restores active anteflexion, external rotation, and function of the...

Humeral resurfacing arthroplasty in combination with latissimus dorsi tendon transfer in patients with rotator cuff tear arthropathy and preserved subscapularis muscle function: preliminary report and short-term results.

Humeral resurfacing arthroplasty represents an alternative option to hemiarthroplasty for treatment of cuff tear arthropathy (CTA), with the advantages as follows: suitability for relatively young and...

A Comparative Study of Postoperative Patient-Controlled Analgesia Use in Latissimus Dorsi and Muscle-Sparing Latissimus Dorsi Flaps in Breast Reconstruction.

Clinical Trials [522 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Operative Versus Non-Operative Treatment of Achilles Tendon Rupture

This study is intended to determine whether the optimal treatment of acute Achilles tendon ruptures is surgical repair or functional bracing. Our hypotheses are surgical repair will: 1) R...

Comparison of Tendon Repair and Physiotherapy in the Treatment of Small and Medium-Sized Tears of the Rotator Cuff

The purpose of this study is to compare treatment benefits from surgical treatment by tendon repair and from physiotherapy for small and medium-sized rotator cuff tears.

Acute Achilles Repair With or Without OrthADAPT Augmentation

The purpose of this study is to assess the clinical performance of the OrthADAPT Bioimplant in patients with acute mid-substance Achilles tendon tears requiring surgical repair.

Surgical Treatment for Acute Patella Tendon Rupture

We will compare two groups for acute patella tendon repair: one treated with surgical anchors and the second, with transpatellar tunnels.

Collagenase in the Treatment of Zone II Flexor Tendon Adhesions in the Hand

The purpose of this study is to dissolve flexor tendon adhesions associated with failed tendon repair surgery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An operation that uses stimulated latissimus dorsi muscle (SKELETAL MUSCLE VENTRICLE) to assist cardiac function. The latissimus dorsi muscle is mobilized from the chest wall and moved into the thorax through the bed of the resected 2nd or 3rd rib. The muscle is then wrapped around the left and right ventricles and stimulated to contract during cardiac systole by means of an implanted burst-stimulator. (Stedman, 26th ed)

Autologous skeletal muscle that is wrapped around the heart and electrically stimulated in order to provide mechanical heart assistance. The latissimus dorsi muscle is commonly used to form this ventricle that functions to independently augment cardiac performance by pumping in series with the heart.

Inflammation of the synovial lining of a tendon sheath. Causes include trauma, tendon stress, bacterial disease (gonorrhea, tuberculosis), rheumatic disease, and gout. Common sites are the hand, wrist, shoulder capsule, hip capsule, hamstring muscles, and Achilles tendon. The tendon sheaths become inflamed and painful, and accumulate fluid. Joint mobility is usually reduced.

Surgical procedure by which a tendon is incised at its insertion and placed at an anatomical site distant from the original insertion. The tendon remains attached at the point of origin and takes over the function of a muscle inactivated by trauma or disease.

A band of fibrous tissue that attaches the apex of the PATELLA to the lower part of the tubercle of the TIBIA. The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.
