Injuries to the fibrous cords of connective tissue which attach muscles to bones or other structures.
Fibrous bands or cords of CONNECTIVE TISSUE at the ends of SKELETAL MUSCLE FIBERS that serve to attach the MUSCLES to bones and other structures.
A fibrous cord that connects the muscles in the back of the calf to the HEEL BONE.
General or unspecified injuries involving the fingers.
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.
Clinical syndrome describing overuse tendon injuries characterized by a combination of PAIN, diffuse or localized swelling, and impaired performance. Distinguishing tendinosis from tendinitis is clinically difficult and can be made only after histopathological examination.
Forcible or traumatic tear or break of an organ or other soft part of the body.
General or unspecified injuries to the hand.
Injuries incurred during participation in competitive or non-competitive sports.

Late repair of simultaneous bilateral distal biceps brachii tendon avulsion with fascia lata graft. (1/627)

A 50 year old rock climber sustained a bilateral rupture of the distal biceps brachii tendons. He retained some flexion power in both arms but minimal supination, being weaker on the non-dominant right side. As the patient presented late, with retraction and shortening of the biceps muscle bellies, reconstruction was carried out using fascia lata grafts on both sides. Because of residual weakness on the left (dominant) side, three further surgical procedures had to be carried out to correct for elongation of the graft. A functionally satisfactory outcome, comparable with that on the right side, was eventually obtained. In summary, bilateral fascia lata grafts to bridge the gap between the retracted biceps bellies and the radial tuberosities were successful in restoring function and flexion power to the elbow. Despite being the stronger side, the dominant arm did not respond as well to the initial surgery. This may be due to overuse of this arm after the operation.  (+info)

Evaluation of chronic tears of the rotator cuff by ultrasound. A new index. (2/627)

The diagnosis of chronic lesions of the rotator cuff is challenging. We have developed a new index to improve the sonographic diagnosis of chronic tears of the cuff. In a pilot study, we examined 50 asymptomatic healthy volunteers by ultrasound to establish the diameter of the rotator cuff in relation to the tendon of the long head of biceps. Subsequently, the index was calculated in 64 patients who had had shoulder pain for more than three months caused by clinically diagnosed lesions of the rotator cuff. The compensatory hypertrophy of the biceps tendon was quantified sonographically in relation to the diameter of the cuff. Comparison with the contralateral shoulder revealed a significantly higher biceps rotator-cuff ratio (p < 0.05) for patients with torn rotator cuffs. A ratio greater than 0.8 was considered pathological (index positive); the mean ratio in the control group was 0.43. The sensitivity of a positive index was 97.8%, the specificity 63.2%, the positive predictive value 86.3%, and the negative predictive value 92.4% in comparison with surgical findings. Use of the index improves sensitivity in the diagnosis of chronic tears of the cuff by ultrasound.  (+info)

Safety of the limited open technique of bone-transfixing threaded-pin placement for external fixation of distal radial fractures: a cadaver study. (3/627)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the safety of threaded-pin placement for fixation of distal radial fractures using a limited open approach. DESIGN: A cadaver study. METHODS: Four-millimetre Schanz threaded pins were inserted into the radius and 3-mm screw pins into the second metacarpal of 20 cadaver arms. Each threaded pin was inserted in the dorsoradial oblique plane through a limited open, 5- to 10-mm longitudinal incision. Open exploration of the threaded-pin sites was then carried out. OUTCOME MEASURES: Injury to nerves, muscles and tendons and the proximity of these structures to the threaded pins. RESULTS: There were no injuries to the extensor tendons, superficial radial or lateral antebrachial nerves of the forearm, or to the soft tissues overlying the metacarpal. The lateral antebrachial nerve was the closest nerve to the radial pins and a branch of the superficial radial nerve was closest to the metacarpal pins. The superficial radial nerve was not close to the radial pins. CONCLUSION: Limited open threaded-pin fixation of distal radial fractures in the dorsolateral plane appears to be safe.  (+info)

Common extensor tendon rupture following corticosteroid injection for lateral tendinosis of the elbow. (4/627)

Contribution of lumbrical muscle activity to the paradoxical extension phenomenon induced by injuries to the finger flexor tendons. (5/627)

The "Extensor habitus" phenomenon occurs in finger flexor tendon injuries and consists of a paradoxical extension of the interphalangeal joints after an attempt to flex the finger. The mechanism of extension is considered to be a contraction of the flexor digitorum profundus that is then transmitted via the lumbrical muscle structure to the extensor expansion. Using electromyography, we recorded the lumbrical muscle activity during the paradoxical extension phenomenon to determine whether the lumbrical muscle contributed to this event. Two patterns of electromyographical activity of the lumbrical muscle were observed. Group I (6 fingers) displayed electrical activities in the lumbrical muscle during flexion tasks, while group II (12 fingers) did not. In group I, the lesions were mainly located in zone V, and the response to range of motion exercises was satisfactory. In group II, nearly all of the lesion were located in zone II, and half of the cases required additional surgical interventions. Group II appeared to exhibit the "Extensor habitus" phenomenon, while group I exhibited an "Extensor habitus-like phenomenon." To distinguish between these two phenomena, an electromyographical examination of the lumbrical muscle must be performed.  (+info)

Comparison of sonography and magnetic resonance imaging for the diagnosis of partial tears of finger extensor tendons in rheumatoid arthritis. (6/627)

OBJECTIVE: Finger extensor tenosynovitis in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) may lead to partial and eventually to complete tendon tears. The aim of this study was to investigate the diagnostic value of sonography (SG) and/or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to visualize partial tendon tears. METHODS: Twenty-one RA patients with finger extensor tenosynovitis for more than 12 months underwent SG, MRI and surgical inspection, the latter being the gold standard. RESULTS: For partial tears, sensitivity and specificity were 0.27 and 0.83 for MRI, and 0.33 and 0.89 for SG, respectively. Positive and negative predictive values were 0.35 and 0.78 for MRI, and 0.50 and 0.80 for SG, respectively. Accuracy was 0.69 for MRI and 0.75 for SG. CONCLUSION: For visualization of partial finger extensor tendon tears in RA patients, SG performs slightly better than MRI, but both techniques are at present not sensitive enough to be used in daily practice.  (+info)

Brachial biceps tendon injuries in young female high-level tennis players. (7/627)

AIM: To evaluate brachial biceps tendon lesions in four young female tennis players who complained about anterior shoulder pain on their dominant side. METHODS: Medical and sport's activity history, palpation of the painful zone, Ghilchrist (palm-up) test, and brachial biceps contraction against resistance were performed. RESULTS: The two girls who suffered from mild tenderness in the bicipital groove and over the anterior aspect of the upper arm and the shoulder joint, had tendinitis of the long biceps head. The two girls who suffered from severe tenderness just under the groove, had a partial tear in the long head of the biceps. Ghilchrist test was positive in all girls. CONCLUSION: Tennis players can have shoulder pain without clear history of trauma. Pain occurred probably as a result of technical errors or use of inadequate equipment.  (+info)

Intracellular biogenesis of collagen fibrils in 'activated fibroblasts' of tendo Achillis. An ultrastructural study in the New Zealand rabbit. (8/627)

We have studied the formation of collagen fibrils in 'activated fibroblasts' of tendo Achillis of rabbits. The tendon was in the process of regeneration after experimental partial tenotomy. Samples were taken from the peri-incisional region and analysed by transmission electron microscopy. Ultrastructural examination showed the presence of a 'fine dense granular substance' inside the rough endoplasmic reticulum and procollagen filaments. These come together to form collagen fibrils in the dilated vacuoles of the rough endoplasmic reticulum. The possible intra- and extracellular origin of collagen fibrils is suggested. Within the cell biosynthesis of collagen fibrils take place with the formation of collagen substance which gives rise to procollagen filaments. These make contact in parallel apposition to produce striated 'spindle-shaped bodies' which elongate by the longitudinal attachment of more procollagen filaments and form intracellular nascent collagen fibrils.  (+info)

Flexor tendon injuries are relatively uncommon in children, especially those who are very young. The mechanism of injury, the size of the anatomical structures, the surgical procedures used to repair them and the therapy protocols used post operatively all vary greatly depending on the age of the child.. Limited knowledge exists as to which surgical and therapeutic options yield the most favourable outcomes in the paediatric population. This is due in part to there being limited literature on the outcomes of different treatment regimes across the various age groups and the sheer diversity of the population with regard to developmental maturity, anatomical differences, zone of injury and type of repair.. Children aged 0-5:. In children under the age of 5, delayed presentation and repair is common. The absence of movement in a digit can often go unnoticed by the child and their parents following lacerations to the wrist, hand or fingers. The most common mechanism of injury in this age group is ...

Dr Duncan Wells at Atlas Orthopaedics in Woodstock, GA performs flexor tendon repair surgery to treat flexor tendon tears and injuries.
Chronic low inflammation prompted by high cholesterol levels has been linked to tendon abnormalities and pain. Tendons connect muscles and bones within the body. Obesity, fat distribution, and overuse, either through exercise or work, put extra stress on the tendons. Research suggests, however, that these factors do not attribute to the rising number of cases of tendon injury and pain.. The researchers found that those with familial hypercholesterolemia - genetically determined high cholesterol - were more likely to suffer from tendon injury and pain, compared to those who did not.. The researchers went through six medical research databases to collect their information and came up with 1,607 articles. Seventeen of them involved 2,612 participants.. They found that those with abnormal tendon structures were more likely to have high blood fat. These individuals also had higher LDL (bad) cholesterol. Continue reading…. ...

Currently, horses with tendon injury are treated using their own mesenchymal stem cells, those which form muscular and connective tissues. For this, each horse has to have a tissue sample isolated, which results in a delay while the cells are processed and grown to sufficient numbers for injection into the tendon.. Our research is determining whether using embryo-derived stem cells could be a safe and effective alternative to current treatment. The advantage of these stem cells is that they can be grown indefinitely in the laboratory and could provide an off the shelf source of cells for treating injuries. Through their use, we could develop new therapies for tendon injuries, allowing more horses to successfully return to work following an injury.. ...

Methods: Using a New York statewide hospital administrative database covering an 8-year period, we examined unique patient discharges with an index procedure of flexor tendon repair for reoperation (re-repair or tenolysis). We compared the age, sex, race, and insurance type by reoperation status using standard univariate statistics and multivariate regression analysis. We performed trend analysis using the Cochran-Armitage trend test. Results: From 1998 to 2005, there were 5,229 flexor tendon repairs with a frequency of reoperation of 6%; of these, 91% were in the first year after the primary procedure. Those who ...
Tendon tears can be incomplete or complete. An incomplete tear does not go through all of the fibers of the tendon. A complete tear of a tendon is also referred to as a rupture. When a tendon is ruptured, your orthopedic doctor will need to see you promptly for evaluation and treatment. Even an incomplete tear may cause you to experience considerable pain, which is why it is important to arrange for an orthopedic evaluation as soon as possible.. Symptoms of a Torn Tendon. When a tendon suddenly ruptures, you may experience instantaneous intense pain. You may even hear a popping sound or snapping sound when the tendon ruptures. The area will be weak and it may look deformed. You will be unable to bear weight on the tendon, such as the case when the Achilles tendon ruptures. The area may begin to swell, bruise, and turn red within 30 minutes of the rupture.. Causes of a Torn Tendon. Direct trauma is the most common cause of tendon tears. Some examples of direct trauma include getting hit with a ...

The flexor tendons of the human hand are prone to injuries due to their superficial anatomical position and the multiple functions of the hand. The repair of flexor tendon injuries is complicated by the formation of fibrotic adhesions, which restrict tendon gliding and flexion of the injured digits. Even a small reduction in digits range of motion can be disabling and complicate everyday activities. Despite implementation of modern suture techniques and post-operative motion protocols, the rehabilitation following these injuries is unpredictable. Further improvement and consistency of the outcome following flexor tendon injuries is likely to warrant manipulation of the biological tendon-healing response. For further understanding of the molecular mechanisms contributing to adhesion formation, in vivo screening models are needed. In this thesis I describe the first mouse model of flexor tendon injury and reconstruction. We have developed a functional test of tendon gliding and adhesions, and a ...

Tendon injuries can occur in the forearm, at the wrist, in the palm, or along the finger. Depending on whether the tendon was partially or fully torn, this type of injury may make it difficult or impossible to bend or straighten one or more joints in a finger. Since tendons are under tension as they connect muscle to the bone (like a rubber band), if a tendon is completely cut, the ends of the tendon will recoil and pull apart. Timely surgical intervention is required to reattach the two separated ends in order for them to heal ...

N2 - Background: After flexor tendon repair, the strength of the repair and the resistance to digital motion are important considerations in deciding when to initiate postoperative rehabilitation. Our objective was to assess these factors in a short-term in vivo canine model of flexor tendon repair. Methods: Forty-eight dogs were randomly allocated to four groups based on the duration of postoperative follow-up (one, three, five, or seven days). In each group, two flexor digitorum profundus tendons of one forepaw were exposed. One tendon (the repair tendon) was sharply transected and repaired with a modified Kessler suture, and the other one (the sham tendon) was simply ...

PY - 2012/3. Y1 - 2012/3. N2 - Background: Options for repair of distal biceps tendon ruptures are well-described. However, scant data exist in the literature regarding failure strength of the native tendon. We hypothesize that a) the distal biceps tendon failure strength is sensitive to loading angle, and b) the failure strength is greater than what has been previously reported in the literature. Methods: 15 radii were potted in a simulated supine position, and the native tendon was pulled from the tuberosity at angles of 90, 60, and 30° of flexion (5 per group) relative to the long axis of the radius. The failure load and stiffness were recorded and compared. Findings: The native tendons mean failure load tended to increase as flexion angle decreased. Due to the large variability in strength, mean ...
Achilles tendon rupture is one of the most common tendon injuries in the adult population. The incidence of this injury is increasing as aging adults continue their participation in high-demand sports. Although the impact of an Achilles tendon rupture is substantial, often resulting in prolonged disability and rehabilitation. Studies have showed that the operation treatment of acute Achilles tendon ruptures had some advantages. But the rebuild of blood supply was not involved in previous studies. And the epitenon of tendon is the interior layer, closest to the endotenons which contains the vascular supply. Main difference of two suture methods were if the epitenon was repaired and sewed indirectly or unrepaired and sewed directly ...
Patients who have an Achilles tendon injury typically feel pain in the calf. The Achilles tendon connects the heel to the calf muscles, and may become damaged or torn while participating in certain sporting activities. It enables the foot to point and flex, which is necessary in order to walk, run, and jump. The Achilles tendon may tear or become ruptured as a result of repetitive stress on the feet and ankles. It can happen gradually from consistent running, or happen suddenly from an increase in exercise intensity. Some of the symptoms that are typically associated with this condition can include swelling surrounding the heel, severe pain in the back of the leg, and difficulty walking. If you feel you have endured an Achilles tendon injury, it is advised that you are under the care of a podiatrist.. Achilles tendon injuries need immediate attention to avoid future complications. If you have any concerns, contact Dr. Jeffrey Wachtel of Wachtel Family Foot Care. Our doctor can provide the care ...
Foot and ankle surgeon, Dr John Kennedy in New York, NY offers Achilles tendon repair to treats Achilles tendon ruptures, Achilles tendon injuries and Achilles tendon tears.
The most common Achilles tendon injuries are Achilles tendinosis (also known as Achilles tendinopathy or misspelled Achilles tendonopathy) and Achilles tendon rupture. Achilles tendinosis is a soreness and stiffness that comes on gradually and continues to worsen until treated. It often starts with stiffness and creaking when first getting out of bed in the morning. Lightly pinching the Achilles tendon with the forefinger and thumb will indicate soreness. Achilles tendinosis is a common injury among middle and long distance runners. Achilles tendon rupture is a partial or complete tear of the Achilles tendon. It comes on suddenly, sometimes with a popping sound, and is debilitating. Partial and full Achilles tendon ruptures are most likely to occur in sports requiring sudden eccentric stretching, such as sprinting and racquet sports ...

Abstract Fibrin glue has been widely used in a variety of surgical procedures to promote haemostasis and tissue bonding. It can also be used as a cell carrier for stem cells on tendons. However, the data about the effect of fibrin glue on flexor tendon healing is very limited. The present study examined the role of fibrin glue TISSEEL® in a rabbit model of flexor tendon injury. The rabbits were killed 3 or 8 weeks after the operation. The range-of-motion of the fingers and biomechanical properties of tendons were measured and compared between the control group and TISSEEL-treated group. The findings have shown that the range-of-motion in the TISSEEL-treated group was significantly different from that of the control group at 3 weeks after the operation. However, there is no significant difference in range-of-motion at 8 weeks after the operation. Moreover, there is no significant difference in biomechanical properties between the control group and TISSEEL-treated group. The results indicate that TISSEEL

During the lockout, many of them worked together with Loren Landow, the director of performance enhancement at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic.. Achilles tendon injuries caused the most concern in NFL training camps last year. Ten players in the league, including Broncos cornerback SydQuan Thompson, suffered an Achilles tendon injury before Week 1 of the regular season.. Researchers associated with Ohio State looked into the issue and concluded that these numbers have already exceeded all previously reported Achilles tendon ruptures that normally occur over an entire NFL season. For a period covering 20 NFL seasons ...

What is an extensor tendon?. Extensor tendons, located on the back of the hand and fingers, allow you to straighten your fingers and thumb (see Figure 1). These tendons are attached to muscles in the forearm. As the tendons continue into the fingers, they become flat and thin. In the fingers, these tendons are joined by smaller tendons from the muscles in the hand. It is these small-muscle tendons that allow delicate finger motions and coordination.. How are extensor tendons injured?. Extensor tendons are just under the skin, directly on the bone, on the back of the hands and fingers. Because of their location, they can be easily injured even by a minor cut. Jamming a finger may cause these thin tendons to rip apart from their attachment to bone. After this type of injury, you may have a hard time straightening one or more joints. Treatment is necessary to return use to the tendon.. How are extensor tendon injuries treated?. Cuts that split the tendon may need stitches, but tears caused by ...

The Achilles tendon is a strong bands of fibrous connective tissue that attaches the calf muscle to the heel bone. When the muscle contracts, the tendon transmits the power of this contraction to the heel bone, producing movement. The Achilles tendon ruptures because the load applied to it is greater than the tendons ability to withstand that load. This usually occurs as a result of a sudden, quick movement where there is a forceful stretch of the tendon or a contraction of the muscles eg: jumping, sprinting, or pushing off to serve in tennis. This occurs most often in sports that require a lot of stopping and starting (acceleration-deceleration sports) such as tennis, basketball, netball and squash. The Achilles tendon is on average 15cm in length. Most ruptures occur 2-6cm above where the tendon inserts into the heel bone. This is the narrowest portion of the Achilles tendon and is also the area with the poorest blood supply. achilles tendon rupture is most common when the muscles and tendon ...
In the US, by far the most common treatment choice for an achilles tendon rupture is an open surgery. In this type of surgery, one large incision is made at the back of the leg in order to access the tendon. If the gap between ruptured tendon ends is too large, a tendon transfer from the toe or other place is often necessary. There are many variations in surgical technique, type of stitches used, type of anesthesia, and more. Below, I will post the best links I can find related to open surgery related articles, studies and videos.. The Krackow Suture, by Dr. Kenneth Krackow, 2008.

Quadriceps tendon is a thick tissue located at the top of the kneecap. The quadriceps tendon works together with the quadriceps muscles to allow us to straighten our leg. The quadriceps muscles are the muscles located in front of the thigh.. Quadriceps tendon rupture most commonly occurs in middle-aged people who participate in sports which involve jumping and running. Quadriceps tear occurs by fall, direct blow to the leg and when you land on your leg awkwardly from a jump. Other causes include tendonitis (inflammation of quadriceps tendon), diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes mellitus, infection, and chronic renal failure which weakens the quadriceps tendon. Use of medications such as steroids and some antibiotics also weakens the quadriceps tendon.. When the quadriceps tendon tears, the patella may lose its anchoring support in the thigh. As a result, the patella moves towards the foot. You will be unable to straighten your knee and upon standing the knee buckles upon itself. To ...
Frank Boehm (Nanoapps Medical Inc. Founder) has contributed to Platelet-Rich Plasma Applications for Achilles Tendon Repair: A Bridge between Biology and Surgery, published by International Journal of Molecular Sciences/ MDP.. Abstract: Achilles tendon ruptures are very common tendon ruptures and their incidence is increasing in modern society, resulting in work incapacity and months off sport, which generate a need for accelerated and successful therapeutic repair strategy.. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is emerging as adjuvant human blood-derived constructs to assist Achilles tendon rupture treatment. However, myriad PRP preparation methods in conjunction with poor standardization in the modalities of their applications impinge on the consistent effectiveness of clinical and structural outcomes regarding their therapeutic efficacy. The purpose of this review is to provide some light on the application of PRP for Achilles tendon ruptures.. PRP has many characteristics that make it an attractive ...
Achilles tendon ruptures commonly occur in athletic individuals in their 30s and 40s while performing activities that require sudden acceleration or changes in direction (ex. basketball, tennis, etc.). Patients usually describe a sharp pain in their heel region almost as if they were struck in the back of the leg. The diagnosis of an acute Achilles tendon rupture is made on clinical examination as x-rays will reveal the ankle bones to be normal. The Achilles is the largest and strongest tendon in the body. It is subject to 2-3 times body weight during normal walking so regaining normal Achilles tendon function is critical. Achilles tendon ruptures can be successfully treated non-operatively, or operatively, but they must be treated. Surgical treatment leads to a faster recovery and a lower rate of re-rupture. However, surgery can be associated with very serious complications such as an infection or wound healing problems. For this reason non-operative treatment may be preferable in many ...
Dr Michelle Wolcott offers Achilles tendon tear repair in Inverness and Denver, CO. She performs Achilles tendon rupture surgery to decrease the recurrence of the Achilles tendon.
New research into how tendons age has found that the material between tendon fibre bundles stiffens as it gets older and that this is responsible for older horses being more susceptible to tendon injuries.. Researchers from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), University of East Anglia, University College London and University of Liverpool, repeatedly stretched samples of horse tendons, which are very similar to human ones, to test their elasticity and ability to recover.. Experiments in the past have shown that stiffening in aging tendons contributes to increased injuries in older tendons and this new research shows that it is specifically the stiffening and decreased resistance to repetitive loading of the tissue which holds tendon fibre bundles in place that is responsible.. Tendon fibre bundles are surrounded by the interfascicular matrix (IFM), made up of tissue which enables the fibre bundles to slide past each other and stretch independently. In horses, the superficial digital flexor ...
It is rare to hear about an athlete who has surgery to repair a torn achilles tendon, and then re-ruptures the same achilles tendon while recovering. Many athletes re-rupture several years after the initial rupture, usually while playing their main sport. However, re-rupture rates in the weeks immediately following surgery are extremely low in the general populace, and considering that rich athletes have access to the best surgeons, equipment, doctors and physios, it almost never happens to them.. However, Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who ruptured his achilles tendon in 2014 at the age of 30, re-ruptured it five weeks after surgery during a slip at home. A similar thing happened to Philadelphia Eagles left tackle Jason Peters in 2012.. This makes me even more pleased at choosing the non-surgical option to repair my achilles tendon rupture in 2013. ...

A retrospective review of consecutive biceps tendon repairs was performed at one institution over a 5-year period. Thirty-six patients met the inclusion criteria and 26 were available for follow-up including subjective assessment, physical examination, and strength testing. Patients were divided into two groups based on the surgical approach utilized: 12 patients ...
Tendon Healing Tendons are made of living cells. If the cut ends of the tendon can be brought back together, healing begins through the cells that are inside of the tendon as well as the tissue outside of the tendon. Because the cut ends of a tendon usually separate after an injury, a cut tendon can not heal without surgery. Your doctor will advise you on how soon surgery is needed after a flexor tendon is cut. There are many ways to repair a cut tendon, and certain types of cuts need a specific type of repair. In the finger, it is important to preserve certain pulleys, and there is very little space between the tendon and pulley in which to perform a repair. Nearby nerves and blood vessels may need to be repaired as well. After surgery, and depending on the type of cut, the injured area can either be protected from movement or started on a very specific limited-movement program for several weeks (see Figure 3). Your doctor may prescribe hand therapy for you after surgery. If unprotected finger ...
If the rotator cuff injury has developed suddenly, often patients will feel intense pain, arm weakness and the sensation of the shoulder popping-out. How weak the arm is will depend on the severity of the injury.. A partial tear may only cause mild shoulder pain and arm weakness, accompanied by clicking as the arm are is elevated. Conversely, a full tear will typically present with severe pain in the shoulder and in inability to move the elbow away from the body. In some cases, due to the severity of the tear, many of the pain receptors in the shoulder are also damaged. This can reduce the degree of pain, although movement will be significantly impaired.. When a rotator cuff tendon is torn, it is no longer fully attached to the humerus head. Most cases begin with fraying due to repeated strain. As this continues a complete tear can develop suddenly, such as lifting a heavy object.. In diagnosing a rotator cuff tear medical history and a physical examination will be preformed. Doctors will ...
Presenting a logical, comprehensive approach to the patient with a massive rotator cuff tear, this book begins with the pathoanatomy and diagnostic work-up for this common injury, including imaging. Both non-operative and operative treatment options for massive tears follow, including arthroscopy, the use of biologics and patches, tendon transfers, and hemiarthroplasty and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. A practical treatment algorithm for clinicians treating patients with massive rotator cuff tears is also included. Each chapter opens with pearls and pitfalls covering the main key points for quick reference. The overarching theme of this book is that patients with similar imaging findings may demonstrate very different clinical presentations, and the final treatment recommendation should be made based on their complaints and expectations. As such, it will be an excellent resource for orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine and shoulder physicians, physiatrists, physical medicine and rehab specialists

The patient is positioned prone after administration of either general or regional anesthesia. A longitudinal incision is made on either the medial or lateral aspect of the tendon. If a lateral incision is chosen care must be taken to identify and protect the sural nerve. Length of the incision averages 3 to 10 cm. Once the paratenon is incised longitudinally, the tendon ends are easily identifies. These are then re-approximated with either a Bunnell or Kessler or Krackow type suture technique with nonabsorbable suture. Next, the epitenon is repaired with a cross stitch technique. The paratenon should be repaired if it will be useful to prevent adhesions. Finally, a meticulous skin closure will limit wound complications. An alternative method is to perform a percutaneous technique, with a small incision (ranging from 2-4 cm). A few salient points include: the incision should be extended as needed, no self-retaining retractors should be used, and meticulous paratenon and wound closure is ...

A torn rotator cuff tendon is damage to one or more of the four tendons that cover the shoulder joint. These tendons connect the rotator cuff muscles to the upper arm bone (humerus), shoulder bone (scapula), and collarbone (clavicle). It takes tremendous force to tear a healthy rotator cuff tendon. This may occur from a...
There are few assessment tools available to objectively measure in-vivo flexor tendon healing in the hand. Ultrasound properties of echogenicity and tendon thickness, which indicate structural properties of the healing tendon, have previously been used to evaluate healing of the surgically repaired Achilles tendon in humans, and various animal tendons. In the past, tendon excursion has been measured invasively by radiographic measurement of implanted metal markers, however a non-invasive alternative is to measure the distance moved by tendon-suture material, which is rendered visible by ultrasound imaging. Gapping of the tendon ends has also been previously measured ultrasonographically, as has margination (definition of tissue borders), which indicates tendon adhesions. In addition, power Doppler ultrasound is a sensitive measure of tendon vascularity and is able to detect change in tendinopathy lesions and inflammatory conditions. However, it is not known if the ultrasound properties (of ...

What is It?. The flexor tendons of the fingers allow the fingers to bend and grip. When the tendon is no longer attached to the bone at the end of the finger (rupture), it is impossible to bend the fingertip.. What is it caused by?. The most common cause of a flexor tendon injury is a deep cut to the finger. When cut, the tendon acts like a rubber band, and the ends pull away from one another. When this happens, it becomes impossible to bend the tip of the finger. Sometimes, the flexor tendon may tear or pull away from the bone. In sports such as rugby or rugby league, a player may grab another players jersey, and get their finger may get caught in the fabric of the jersey causing the flexor tendon to tear. This injury is called a jersey finger.. How is it treated?. The torn FDP tendon may retract slightly, remaining within the finger, or it can retract more fully into the palm of the hand. This injury requires surgical repair as soon as possible! After surgery, when the tendon is re-attached ...

Treating Achilles Tendon Injuries Of all of the tendons in the human body, the Achilles tendon is the largest. The muscles at the posterior of the lower leg are attached to the calcaneous (heel bone) by the Achilles tendon. Because if its location, the Achilles tendon must withstand a great deal of pressure during strenuous exercise - especially sporting activities that involve a lot of pivoting.. Two types of injury are quite common for the Achilles tendon:. #1 Achilles tendonitis is inflammation caused by overuse.. Second is the tearing of the Achilles tendon.. What is Achilles Tendonitis?. Achilles tendonitis is caused by a sudden increase in the intensity of activity to which the Achilles tendon is subjected. So, for example, if you suddenly change the type of training you are doing or greatly increase the intensity of your existing training, you are likely to experience Achilles tendonitis. This is why you must take great care when adding very strenuous exercise to your routine or when ...
