To define the matrix composition and architecture of canine flexor tendon, and to correlate tissue structure with applied mechanical loading, five anatomical regions of flexor tendon were studied. Histologically, two prominent fibrocartilaginous areas were observed on concave aspects of the tendon. The location of the major fibrocartilaginous area at the metacarpophalangeal joint correlated well with the region predicted by biomechanical modeling to be under greatest compressive loads during… CONTINUE READING
