Early weightbearing protocols after Achilles tendon repair promote mobilization, yet little is known about their effect on tendon lengthening.

To compare treadmill versus cycling-based exercise in cardiac rehabilitation (CR) on functional capacity (FC) outcomes.
Crown lengthening is one of the most common surgeries in clinical practice. Under the premise of ensuring the biologic width, the adequate crown is exposed by resecting the periodontal soft tissue and...
Injuries to the hands, wrists, and fingers often involve damage to the tendons. The ability to measure tendon movements during the rehabilitation process can provide clinicians with important informat...
Rehabilitation is an important aspect of both non-operative and operative treatments of knee ligament tear. Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) non-operative treatment consists of a step-by-step rehabil...
To compare accelerated corneal crosslinking (CXL) alone, CXL with simultaneous intrastromal corneal ring segments (CXL-ICRS), and CXL with simultaneous topography-guided photorefractive keratectomy (C...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the surgically repaired tendon of a ruptured achilles tendon. We will investigate fixation slippage and tendon creep and correlate how these post-r...
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 aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of this new therapeutic method, which is based on the percutaneous sliding technique with three hemi-cuts in the tendon.
The project sets out to compare two different splints in the outcome of zone II flexor tendon injury hand therapy rehabilitation programme. Traditional hand therapy is based on using a lon...
This is a randomised controlled trial involving patients who have a double-row arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. Null hypothesis: There is no difference in outcome between standard rehabi...
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
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.
Increase in the longest dimension of a bone to correct anatomical deficiencies, congenital, traumatic, or as a result of disease. The lengthening is not restricted to long bones. The usual surgical methods are internal fixation and distraction.
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.
