Overuse disorders of tendons, or tendinopathies, present a challenge to sports physicians, surgeons, and other health care professionals dealing with athletes. The Achilles, patellar, and supraspinatus tendons are particularly vulnerable to injury and often difficult to manage successfully. Inflammation was believed central to the pathologic process, but histopathologic evidence has confirmed the failed healing response nature of these conditions. Excessive or inappropriate loading of the… Expand

New options in the management of tendinopathy
TLDR
The new options for the management of tendinopathy are reported, including eccentric exercises, extracorporeal shockwave therapy, injections, injections (intratendinous injections of corticosteroids, aprotinin, polidocanol platelet-rich plasma, autologous blood injection, high-volume injections) and surgery.

Management of Achilles and patellar tendinopathy: what we know, what we can do
TLDR
A narrative review of the recent available scientific literature on Achilles and patellar tendinopathies to provide evidence-based opinions on these two common and troublesome conditions. Expand
Achilles tendinopathy - Part 1: Aetiology, diagnosis and non-surgical management
Non-insertional Achilles tendinopathy is by far the most common condition affecting this strong tendon and the incidence is on the rise due to increasing participation in recreational sportsExpand
Management of the Injured Tendon : Difficulties in Diagnosis and T reatment
Background: Tendon injury is a painful and often debilitating affliction, which commonly presents to the sports medicine professional. Researchers have often struggled to determine the mostExpand
Achilles tendinopathy.
TLDR
The clinical diagnosis and management of AT are not straightforward, and patients should understand that symptoms may recur with either conservative or surgical approaches. Expand
The treatment of patellar tendinopathy
TLDR
Physical training, and particularly eccentric training, appears to be the treatment of choice for PTM, and the literature does not clarify which surgical technique is more effective in recalcitrant cases. Expand
New Treatments for Degenerative Tendinopathy, focused on the Region-Specific of the Tendon
TLDR
This brief review aims to update recent information on the treatment approaches of tendinopathy focused on the specific area of the tendon. Expand
Patellar tendinopathy: a critical review of current therapeutic options
TLDR
This present critical re-view, focused on the treatment of patellar tendinopathy, aims to shine a light on the different studies of each of these treatment options by analysing each ones level of scientific recovery time, the tendon will initiate evidence. Expand
Treatment of Achilles tendinopathy: state of the art
TLDR
Treatment of Achilles tendinopathy with highest evidence entail non-surgical methods to promote tendon healing with focused eccentric exercises and biophysical procedures, but future therapies should target the differential underlying pathologies of NIAT using combined non-Surgical and minimal-invasive including biological approaches. Expand
Achilles Injuries in the Athlete: Noninsertional
TLDR
Percutaneous repair followed by early functional rehabilitation is becoming increasingly common and should be considered in selected patients, and minimally invasive techniques appear to reduce the risks of infection and provide better cosmetic results. Expand

an Operative Approach to Achilles Tendinopathy
TLDR
In insertional tendinopathy, the pre-Achilles bursa is removed, together with the lateral and medial outgrowth of bone and cartilage of the posterior border of the calcaneus, as is done with Haglund deformity, thus preventing further impingement of the tendon insertion. Expand
Current concepts in the management of tendon disorders.
TLDR
The advent of 'eccentric loading' training programmes has revolutionized the treatment of Achilles tendinopathy in some patients, and this concept is currently being extended to include other commonly injured tendons. Expand
On the nature and etiology of chronic achilles tendinopathy
TLDR
Most patients were athletes but physical activity was not correlated to histopathology and could be more important in provoking symptoms than in the evolution of the actual lesion, refuted the popular theory of the mid-tendon hypovascular zone as a cause of ruptures and chronic lesions. Expand
Surgical management of Achilles tendinitis
TLDR
Surgery offers a solution for highly motivated runners with chronic posterior heel pain who would like to continue running when conservative measures have failed, and particularly if they are competitive. Expand

TLDR
In overuse clinical conditions in and around tendons, frank inflammation is infrequent, and is associated mostly with tendon ruptures, and this leads athletes and coaches to underestimate the proven chronicity of the condition. Expand
Etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of tendonitis: an analysis of the literature.
TLDR
It was concluded that much of the pathology and etiology of tendonitis remains unclear and the possibility must be considered that current treatment methods may not significantly affect the natural history. Expand

TLDR
Findings support this procedure as a valid alternative to treat AT disorders such as peritenonitis, which is readily released by endoscopy in cadaveric specimens. Expand

TLDR
An anatomic cadaver study was performed, diagnostic and therapeutic tendoscopy was performed in nine consecutive patients with a history of persistent posterolateral ankle pain, and a new finding is the vincula that was consistently present in all autopsy specimens, as well as in all patients.

Adiposity and tendinopathy
TLDR
There may be an interaction between adiposity and tendon pathology, and body composition may be a key intrinsic risk factor that is translated into tendon disease in the presence of additional intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Expand

TLDR
Two athletes with persistent infrapatellar tendonitis were treated with an arthroscopic debridement and both athletes returned to full activities without restrictions within 8 weeks of surgery. Expand
