• Canine common calcaneal (Achilles) tendon injury is a well-known cause of lameness in the dog. (illinois.edu)
  • Common calcaneal tendons and calcaneii were obtained as paired units from pelvic limbs of adult, sexually intact mixed breed dogs euthanized for unrelated reasons and free of gross evidence of orthopedic disease. (illinois.edu)
  • This study assesses the functional outcomes and complications of chronic insertional tears of Achilles tendon. (ijoro.org)
  • The material properties of PDS were generally better for suturing than those of Prolene, but no difference was found in offset yield strength or initial extension. (nih.gov)
  • a) I am interested in the biomechanics of a specific tendon in a specific high-speed deformation. (imechanica.org)
  • A large gap (>3 mm) in repaired tendon results in slower healing and decreased ultimate tensile strength (UTS) at 6 weeks, compared to those with a smaller gap. (illinois.edu)
  • As these sutures are processed from existing materials and result in a smaller core diameter, it is recommended to select a barbed suture 1-2 sizes larger than the appropriate smooth suture, with the expectation of at least equal tensile strength. (illinois.edu)
  • The tendons were randomly assigned to three groups of equal number (n=20 each). (e-aps.org)
  • Recent veterinary studies demonstrate that knotless barbed sutures have supraphysiologic, and in some cases, increased load to failure compared to conventional sutures in selected soft tissue surgeries. (illinois.edu)
  • He described surgeries of combining tenodeses and tendon transfers to restore hand function. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hahn F, Maiwald C, Horstmann T, Vienne P. Changes in plantar pressure distribution after Achilles tendon augmentation with flexor hallucis longus transfer. (ijoro.org)
  • It is a procedure in which the tendon of a functioning muscle is detached or divided at or near it's insertion, mobilized and reinserted into a bony part or another tendon to supplement or substitute for the lost function. (blogspot.com)
  • The following data were evaluated: pain intensity, functional limitation, Hannover score, Achilles tendon total rupture score (ATRS), AOFAS ankle-hindfoot score, Tegner activity score, complications, maximum calf circumference (MCC) on both sides, and the Matles test for tendon lengthening. (springeropen.com)
  • To obtain enough working portals and space, two accessory portals were made on the anterior aspect of the shoulder and use an elevator to retract the conjoined tendons and deltoid muscle. (ajou.ac.kr)
