Objetive: The aim of this study is to know the effect of different eccentric exercises programs in the morphology of the patellar tendon. Methods: This is an experimental study. Eighty-five athletes were included: 25 college basketball players (GBC) and 60 college students (GCAFD) with regular sport activity (at least 3 times/week). A 12-weeks eccentric exercise program was performed. Morphology of patellar tendon was seen with ultrasound both at the beginning and at the end of the program. The… Expand

Effectiveness of eccentric exercise in patellar tendinopathy . Literary review
Introduction: Chronic patellar tendinopathy is described as the appearance of pain, inflammation and a loss of function of the patellar tendon. It is a pathology that develops through overuse inExpand


What are causes and treatment strategies for patellar-tendinopathy in female runners ?
Patellar-tendinopathy (PT) is a common overuse injury in long distance runners, especially in women. Until today, no definite combinations of clinical, biomechanical, or training variables, orExpand
Treatment of infrapatellar Tendinitis: A Combination of Modalities and Transverse Friction Massage versus Iontophoresis
The results suggest that iontophoresis may be more effective and efficient in decreasing pain, reducing inflammation, and promoting h... Expand
Neovascularisation in chronic painful patellar tendinosis—promising results after sclerosing neovessels outside the tendon challenge the need for surgery
Treatment with sclerosing injections, targeting the area with neovessels in patellar tendinosis, has the potential to cure the pain in the tendons and also allow the patients to go back to full patellAR-tendon loading activity. Expand
Significance of Ultrasonographically Detected Asymptomatic Tendinosis in the Patellar and Achilles Tendons of Elite Soccer Players: A Longitudinal Study
It is now possible to identify risk factors for the development of serious tendon disorders in asymptomatic athletes and to reduce the risk of chronic, therapy-resistant symptoms of tendinosis and ruptures. Expand
Patellar ligament hypertrophy evaluated by magnetic resonance imaging in a group of professional weightlifters.
The first description of PL midregion hypertrophy due to professional weightlifting training initialised and continued from a pubertal spurt is presented, which is more intensified than has been reported for other parts of the PL. Expand
Extracorporeal Shockwave for Chronic Patellar Tendinopathy
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy appeared to be more effective and safer than traditional conservative treatments in the management of patients with chronic patellar tendinopathy. Expand
Eccentric training in tendinopathy – more questions than answers
Eccentric rehabilitation needs to be compared directly with other modalities in order to establish the most effective way of treating tendinopathies and the question on the optimal load, volume and frequency of eccentric training in tendinopathy has to be addressed. Expand
The evolution of eccentric training as treatment for patellar tendinopathy (jumper’s knee): a critical review of exercise programmes
Most studies suggest that eccentric training may have a positive effect, but the ability to recommend a specific protocol is limited and the studies available indicate that the treatment programme should include a decline board and be performed with some level of discomfort, and that athletes should be removed from sports activity.

Open and Arthroscopic Patellar Tenotomy for Chronic Patellar Tendinopathy
Both procedures provided virtually all subjects with symptomatic benefit, but only about half the subjects who underwent either open or arthroscopic patellar tenotomy were competing at their former sporting level at follow-up. Expand
Effects on neovascularisation behind the good results with eccentric training in chronic mid-portion Achilles tendinosis?
In patients with chronic painful mid-portion Achilles tendinosis, a good clinical result after eccentric training seems to be associated with a more normal tendon structure and no remaining neovascularisation. Expand
