The relationship between the migration of tendinous insertions, periosteal growth and muscular traction was studied in young rabbits. Normal growth was modified in two ways: (i) the growth of the proximal and distal epiphyseal plates of the tibia was arrested by staples. as a consequence, the neighbouring periosteum, no longer stretched, stopped growing in length; insertions were thus no longer dragged by the periosteum and ceased to migrate. (ii) The nature of the insertion of the anterior… CONTINUE READING
