Bone-tendon junction (BTJ) overuse injuries are common athletic and occupational problems. BTJ injuries may sometimes be caused by resuming training too early after injury. To study the effects of post-injury resuming training within 48 hours on the acute injury healing process, as it is often the case for athletes. Twelve mature female rabbits were assigned to one of the following groups: acute injury (AI, n = 6), post-injury early return to training (PIERT, n = 6) and normal control (CON, n…

VEGF and BFGF Expression and Histological Characteristics of the Bone-Tendon Junction during Acute Injury Healing.

The bFGF and VEGF expression revealed that the bone-tendon junction acute injury delayed healing concern with the repairing stop, and the healing process stopped at 8 weeks post injury or was not activated, although the injury had not healed by histological examination.

Effects of Time to Start Training After Acute Patellar Tendon Enthesis Injuries on Healing of the Injury in a Rabbit Model

The optimal time to start training may be longer than 96 hours after an acute patellar tendon enthesis injury for the best overall healing of the tendonEnthesis 4 weeks after the injury.



Evidence of tendon microtears due to cyclical loading in an in vivo tendinopathy model

A delayed bone–tendon junction healing model established for potential treatment of related sports injuries

A delayed B–T healing experimental model was established for the first time for future sports medicine research and showed consistent delay in osteogenesis at the healing interface in all samples in the delayed healing group.

Morphology and Matrix Composition During Early Tendon to Bone Healing

This study outlines the early morphologic phenomenon of tendon to bone healing in the rabbit model and characterization of the insertion between tendon and bone is important to the understanding of healing in commonly used orthopaedic grafting procedures, such as anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions.

Delay of supraspinatus repair by up to 12 weeks does not impair enthesis formation: A quantitative histologic study in rabbits

Results support both a trial of conservative treatment after a rotator cuff tear and a positive outcome of rotators cuff repair even if delayed by up to 12 weeks.

The effect of muscle loading on flexor tendon‐to‐bone healing in a canine model

It is found that muscle loading was beneficial to healing and the formation of a gap between the healing tendon and bone correlated with failure properties.

Surgical treatment of ruptures of the Achilles tendon: a review of long-term results.

The need for new and extensive studies regarding the various alternative treatment forms, such as functional, non-operative options, to finally resolve the debate about the optimal treatment of Achilles tendon ruptures is shown.

The effect of matrix metalloproteinase inhibition on tendon-to-bone healing in a rotator cuff repair model.

The Role of Transforming Growth Factor-β and Bone Morphogenetic Protein with Fibrin Glue in Healing of Bone-Tendon Junction Injury

BMP-2 in combination with fibrin glue accelerates healing in a bone-tendon injury and also improves the histological and biomechanical properties of the repair tissue so formed.

ESW was able to induce osteogenesis at OTJ with delayed healing with enhanced endochondral ossification process and regeneration of fibrocartilage zone with a scientific basis to potential clinical application of ESW for treatment of delayed OTJ healing.
