Effect of suture material and bone quality on the mechanical properties of zone I flexor tendon-bone reattachment with bone anchors.

Abstract

PURPOSE To compare the initial biomechanical properties of zone I flexor tendon to bone repairs performed using pull-out and anchor techniques and to investigate the effect of bone quality and suture materials on the strength of anchor repairs. METHODS Using computed tomography, we measured bone mineral density and cortical thickness of the distal phalanx… (More)
