Find out more about tendon neuroplastic training -- and what role it could play in tendon rehabilitative strategies. British Journal of Sports Medicine
Findings from this study showed after an ACL rupture it was possible to return to preinjury performance or even higher and age is a high indicator for postoperative recovery. Researchers evaluated ski...
Use of either bioabsorbable poly-l-lactide or nonabsorbable polyetherether ketone screws in the treatment of acute distal biceps tendon ruptures had excellent clinical and functional outcomes, accordi...
Patients with distal biceps tendon ruptures who underwent repair with Endobutton fixation experienced return to nearly normal strength and function compared to patients who were nonoperatively treated...
(HealthDay)—Esophageal rupture can occur in association with colonoscopy preparation, according to a letter to the editor published in the March issue of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Socie...
As different cells penetrate through tight, confining spaces within tissue, they often deform, causing their nuclei to rupture under the associated stress. A new study led by Cornell University engine...
Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have discovered a previously unknown weakness; an "Achilles heel", of bacteria. Their discovery may be the first step in developing an entirely novel form o...
Deep infection is one of the most devastating complications following repair of an Achilles tendon rupture. Treatment requires not only culture-driven antibiotic therapy, but more importantly, appropr...
While rupture of the Achilles tendon is one of the most frequent injuries sustained in sports and physical activity, bilateral Achilles tendon rupture is uncommon. We present the case of a 33-year-old...
Chronic rupture of the Achilles tendon (delayed diagnosis of more than 4 weeks) can result in retraction of the tendon and inadequate healing. Direct repair may not be possible and augmentation method...
Tendon healing differs between the sexes. Comparisons in outcome between the sexes after an Achilles tendon rupture are often not possible because of the small cohort (
Rupture of the Achilles tendon is a common injury during working years. Aggressive rehabilitation may provide better outcomes, but also a greater chance of re-rupture.
