The objective of this study was to determine the biomechanical properties of the healing patellar tendon after removal of its central third. This was accomplished by removing the central third of the patellar tendon from the right limb of 30 mature New Zealand White rabbits. The tendon of the contralateral normal limb served as the unoperated control. The rabbits were separated into five test groups according to healing time: time of surgery and 1, 2, 3, and 6 months after surgery. The ultimate… CONTINUE READING
