Tendon to bone healing: differences in biomechanical, structural, and compositional properties due to a range of activity levels.

Abstract

Little knowledge exists about the healing process of the tendon to bone insertion, and hence little can be done to improve tissue healing. The goal of this study is to describe the healing of the supraspinatus tendon to its bony insertion under a variety of loading conditions. Tendons were surgically detached and repaired in rats. Rat shoulders were then… (More)
