BACKGROUND Tendons are viscoelastic tissues that deform (elongate) in response to cyclic loading. However, the ability of a tendon to recover this elongation is unknown. HYPOTHESIS Tendon length significantly increases after in vivo or in vitro cyclic loading, and the ability to return to its original length through a cell-mediated contraction mechanism is an age-dependent phenomenon. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. METHODS In vitro, rat tail tendon fascicles (RTTfs) from… CONTINUE READING
