The postoperative programmed muscle tension induced by functional electrical stimulation (FES) was evaluated for its potential efficacy on acceleration of osteotendinous junction healing using an established partial patellectomy model in rabbits. After immobilization of the operated knee for 6 weeks, daily FES was applied to quadriceps muscles for 30 minutes per day and 5 days per week for 6 weeks in the treatment group and compared with the non-treatment control group at postoperative week 12… Expand
Biology and augmentation of tendon-bone insertion repair
TLDR
The biology and the factors influencing TBI healing using patella-patellar tendon (PPT) healing and tendon graft to bone tunnel healing in ACL reconstruction as examples were described and directions for future studies were discussed. Expand
A delayed bone–tendon junction healing model established for potential treatment of related sports injuries
TLDR
A delayed B–T healing experimental model was established for the first time for future sports medicine research and showed consistent delay in osteogenesis at the healing interface in all samples in the delayed healing group. Expand
Low-intensity pulsed ultrasound accelerated bone-tendon junction healing through regulation of vascular endothelial growth factor expression and cartilage formation.
TLDR
This was the first quantitative study to demonstrate that LIPUS improved B-T junction healing through regulation of VEGF expression in early healing phase and subsequent chondrogenesis. Expand
Low-Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound Stimulation for Tendon-Bone Healing: A Dose-Dependent Study
TLDR
Low-intensity pulsed ultrasound stimulation treatment twice a day was more effective than the once-a-day treatment on tendon-bone healing. Expand
The effects of an early return to training on the bone-tendon junction post-acute micro-injury healing.
TLDR
Resuming training in 48 hours did not significantly deteriorate the BTJ injury healing, but improved bone remodelling and increased fibrocartilage zone thickness, and provided a basic theory for the post-injury training. Expand
Initiation Timing of Low-Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound Stimulation for Tendon-Bone Healing in a Rabbit Model
TLDR
LIPUS started at postoperative day 7 had a more prominent effect on T-B healing compared with the other treatment regimens in this study, and the findings may help optimize the initiation timing of LIPUS for T- B healing. Expand
Peri-graft bone mass and connectivity as predictors for the strength of tendon-to-bone attachment after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
TLDR
Comparison of peri-graft bone mass and microarchitecture with tendon-to-bone (T-B) attachment strength after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in a rabbit model found it useful to monitor the quality of T-B healing and guide the postoperative rehabilitation. Expand
Histopathological changes in patellar tendon enthesis of rabbit induced by electrical stimulation intensity.
TLDR
The findings demonstrated that 18% of peak tetanic force was the threshold intensity which could induce pathological changes in enthesis in four weeks, and the degree of enthesis microdamage was directly related to the intensity of exercises. Expand
Evaluation of bone-tendon junction healing using water jet ultrasound indentation method.
TLDR
The results suggested that the noncontact ultrasound water jet indentation system provided a nondestructive way to evaluate the material properties of small animal tissues in situ and thus had the ability to evaluation the healing process of BTJ. Expand
