The supraspinatus tendon was detached from the greater tubercle in 30 rabbits. After 6 weeks (group A), 3 months (group B) and 6 months (group C) in vivo evaluation of the twitch-tension and fatigue index were done. Next the scapulas with muscles were examined by CT. During the first 6 weeks a marked reduction in power and fatigue index by about 20% and 10… CONTINUE READING
