Role of xenogenous bovine platelet gel embedded within collagen implant on tendon healing: an in vitro and in vivo study.

Abstract

Surgical reconstruction of large Achilles tendon defects is demanding. Platelet concentrates may be useful to favor healing in such conditions. The characteristics of bovine platelet-gel embedded within a collagen-implant were determined in vitro, and its healing efficacy was examined in a large Achilles tendon defect in rabbits. Two cm of the left Achilles… (More)
