Characteristics of the rat supraspinatus tendon during tendon‐to‐bone healing after acute injury
Rotator cuff repair is known to have a high failure rate. Little is known about the natural healing process of the rotator cuff repair site, hence little can be done to improve the tendon's abilityExpand

Mineral Distributions at the Developing Tendon Enthesis
Tendon attaches to bone across a functionally graded interface, “the enthesis”. A gradient of mineral content is believed to play an important role for dissipation of stress concentrations at matureExpand

Rotator cuff defect healing: a biomechanical and histologic analysis in an animal model.
Rotator cuff tears are one of the most common causes of pain and disability in the upper extremity. With the use of an animal model, we studied the healing response of a controlled defect in theExpand

Mechanisms of tendon injury and repair
Tendon disorders are common and lead to significant disability, pain, healthcare cost, and lost productivity. A wide range of injury mechanisms exist leading to tendinopathy or tendon rupture. TearsExpand

Contribution of extracellular matrix to the mechanical properties of the heart.
Extracellular matrix (ECM) components play essential roles in development, remodeling, and signaling in the cardiovascular system. They are also important in determining the mechanics of bloodExpand

Tendon to bone healing: differences in biomechanical, structural, and compositional properties due to a range of activity levels.
Little knowledge exists about the healing process of the tendon to bone insertion, and hence little can be done to improve tissue healing. The goal of this study is to describe the healing of theExpand

Functional attachment of soft tissues to bone: development, healing, and tissue engineering.
Connective tissues such as tendons or ligaments attach to bone across a multitissue interface with spatial gradients in composition, structure, and mechanical properties. These gradients minimizeExpand

Decreased muscle loading delays maturation of the tendon enthesis during postnatal development
Physical environment influences the development and maintenance of musculoskeletal tissues. The current study uses an animal model to explore the role of the physical environment on the postnatalExpand

The development and morphogenesis of the tendon-to-bone insertion - what development can teach us about healing -.
The attachment of dissimilar materials is a major challenge because of the high levels of stress that develop at such interfaces. An effective solution to this problem develops at the attachment ofExpand

Collagen fiber orientation at the tendon to bone insertion and its influence on stress concentrations.
The tendon to bone insertion serves the mechanical role of transferring loads from a relatively compliant tendon to a relatively rigid bone. The details of the mechanism of load transfer are of greatExpand
