The transosseous-equivalent (TOE) rotator cuff repair technique increases failure loads and contact pressure and area between tendon and bone compared to single-row (SR) and double-row (DR) repairs, but no study has investigated if this translates into improved healing in vivo. We hypothesized that a TOE repair in a rabbit chronic rotator cuff tear model(More)
PURPOSE The optimum number of cross-stitches in modified Becker repair for extensor tendon injury is not known. The purpose of this study was to compare the biomechanical characteristics of 1, 2, and 3 cross-stitches in modified Becker extensor repairs. METHODS We used 8 fresh-frozen cadaveric hands (24 fingers). We exposed extensor tendons of the index,(More)
