Preventing Bone Loss Improves Tendon-Bone Healing in a Canine Model

Abstract

Studies have shown that tendon insertion site injuries can lead to bone loss. Following tendon-bone repair, bone loss can lead to widening of the repair tunnel. This widening may negatively affect the establishment of a strong tendon-bone interface, leading to recurrence of failure. Our goal was to suppress bone loss after insertion site repair using… (More)
