The healing response of flexor tendons treated with either sheath reconstruction or sheath excision, and early passive motion rehabilitation was investigated in a canine model. Flexor sheath repair, sheath excision, and autogenous sheath grafting were compared for biomechanical characteristics, and biochemical and ultrastructural alterations at the repair… CONTINUE READING
