Improvement of gliding function of flexor tendons by topically applied enriched collagen solution.

Abstract

The long flexor tendons of the second, third and fourth toes of 94 chickens were cut and sutured. After operation the birds were divided into three groups. To reduce peritendinous adhesions, an aqueous solution of beta-aminopropionitrile (BAPN) was added to a solution of enriched native collagen (ECS) and applied to the cut tendons of one group; untreated… (More)
