Achilles tendon replacement by a collagen fiber prosthesis: morphological evaluation of neotendon formation.

Abstract

Reconstituted type I collagen was processed into fibers which were subsequently severely dehydrated and cyanamide cross-linked. Fibers prepared by this method were stronger and more resistant to degradation than uncrosslinked fibers. When used as a tendon replacement prosthesis, morphological events occurred which were observed by light, scanning… (More)
