We conducted a retrospective comparison of surgical treatment outcomes for acute Achilles tendon ruptures in nonobese and obese patients.
Repair of acute Achilles tendon ruptures is complicated by the severity of the rupture, quality of the tendon, and length of the defect. The adjunct use of biologics (eg, viable umbilical tissue) may ...
Lower extremity tendon injuries often occur in physically active individuals. Most ruptures not involving great force are diagnosed in patients presenting underlying tendon degenerations. This also ap...
In this prospective study, we used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to assess long-term Achilles tendon length, calf muscle volume, and muscle fatty degeneration after surgery for acute Achilles tendo...
Achilles tendon ruptures affect 15 of 100,000 women and 55 of 100,000 men each year. Controversy continues to exist regarding optimal treatment and rehabilitation protocols. The objective of this stud...
The purpose of this study is to measure the mechanical properties of the tendon after conservative treated Achilles tendon ruptures with or without early controlled loading. This is done i...
The purpose of this study is to directly compare traditional plaster treatment with early weightbearing in a walking boot for the non operative treatment of acute 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...
The purpose of this prospective study is to utilize a real-time ultrasound modality known as real-time Shear Wave Elastography (SWE) to first study the viscoelastic properties of the Achil...
The transfer of Flexor Hallucis Longus (FHL) in the management of chronic Achilles tendon ruptures has demonstrated good functional outcome, but an extensive surgical field at a vulnerable...
Tendon that connects the muscles in the back of the calf to the HEEL BONE.
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.
