BACKGROUND: Injury to distal of posterior cord of brachial plexus leads to palsy of the radial and axillary nerves. The symptoms are usually motor deficits of the deltoid muscle, triceps brachii muscle, and the extensor muscles of the wrist, thumb and fingers. Tendon transfers, nerve grafts, and nerve transfers are options of surgical treatment of proximal radial nerve palsy to restore some motor functions. Tendon transfer is painful, requires a long immobilization, and decreases donor muscle strength; nevertheless, nerve transfer produces promising outcome...

Ruptures of the tendon of the tibialis anterior muscle tend to occur in the context of degenerative impairments. This mainly affects the distal avascular portion of the tendon. Owing to the good compensation through the extensor hallucis longus and extensor digitorum muscles, diagnosis is often delayed. In addition to the clinical examination, magnetic resonance inaging (MRI) diagnostics are of particular importance, although damage or rupture of the tendon can also be demonstrated sonographically. Therapeutic measures include conservative or operative measures, depending on the clinical symptoms...

Achilles tendinopathy at the calcaneal insertion is classified into insertional tendinopathy, retrocalcaneal and superficial bursitis. The aim of this study was to present the current evidence on conservative and surgical treatment of insertional tendinopathy of the Achilles tendon. Conservative first-line therapy includes reduction of activity levels, administration of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), adaptation of footwear, heel wedges and orthoses or immobilization. In addition, further conservative therapy options are also available...

BACKGROUND: Non-traumatic radial nerve palsy (RNP) caused by local tumors is a rare and uncommon entity. METHODS: A 62-year-old female presented with a left non-traumatic RNP, initially starting with weakness only. It was caused by a benign giant lipoma at the proximal forearm that was misdiagnosed over a period of 2 years. The slowly growth of the tumor led to an irreparable overstretching-related partial nerve disruption. For functional recovery of the patient, a triple tendon transfer procedure had to be performed...

Background: The ability to rapidly generate and transfer muscle force is essential for effective corrective movements in order to prevent a fall. The aim of this study was to establish the muscle and tendon contributions to differences in rate of torque development (RTD) between younger (YM) and older males (OM). Method: Twenty-eight young males (23.9 years ± 1.1) and 22 old males (68.5 years ± 0.5) were recruited for assessment of Quadriceps Anatomical CSA (ACSA), maximal voluntary contraction (MVC), rate of torque development (RTD), and tendon biomechanical properties...

PURPOSE: The state-of-the-art tendon transfer surgery for high median-ulnar nerve palsy involves directly suturing four finger flexor tendons to one wrist extensor muscle. This couples finger flexion limiting the patient's ability to grasp objects. Therefore, we propose a new approach to attach a novel passive implant to the extensor digitorum longus tendon in order to create a differential mechanism in situ. The implant is expected to enable the fingers to adapt to an object's shape during grasping...

Tendons are the connective tissue responsible for transferring force from muscles to bones. A key factor in tendon development, maturation, repair and degradation is it's biomechanical environment. Understanding tendon mechanobiology is essential for the development of injury prevention strategies?rehabilitation protocols and potentially novel treatments in tendon injury and degeneration. Despite the simple overall loading on tendon tissue, cells within the tissue in vivo experience a much more complex mechanical environment including tension, compression and shear forces...

Subtalar joint arthroereisis (SJA) has been introduced to control the hyperpronation in cases of flatfoot. The objective of this study is to evaluate the biomechanical consequence of SJA to restore the internal stress and load transfer to the intact state from the attenuated biomechanical condition induced by posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD). A three-dimensional finite element model of the foot and ankle complex was constructed based on clinical images of a healthy female (age 28 years, height 165 cm, body mass 54 kg)...

BACKGROUND: The latissimus dorsi (LD) is often used for tendon transfers to treat massive irreparable posterosuperior rotator cuff tears. The operation requires the LD tendon to be mobilized to reduce tension on the tendon. In that respect, any connection between the LD tendon and contiguous muscles may hamper tendon mobility and affect the surgical outcome. The goal of this study was to document the occurrence of connections between the LD and adjacent muscles and nerves. METHODS: We studied the scapular region on 48 embalmed cadavers...

Camitz abductorplasty is the most commonly used tendon transfer in patients with severe carpal tunnel syndrome with significant muscle wasting and loss of opposition. This procedure requires a long incision in the palm to harvest a strip of palmar aponeurosis to lengthen the palmaris longus tendon, allowing it to reach the abductor pollicis brevis insertion. Several complications have been attributed to this extensive dissection in the palm. We describe a minimally invasive palmaris longus abductorplasty using a strip of free flexor carpi radialis tendon graft to achieve the necessary length...

Tibial dorsiflexion osteotomy for recalcitrant equinus in clubfeet is reported to have a high recurrence rate with growth. We present the results of closing wedge tibial dorsiflexion osteotomy and tendon transfers in 15 feet and 11 patients. The mean age at presentation was 7 (range: 3.98-12.38) years. At a mean follow-up of 4.16 (range: 2.09-6.87) years, 11 of the 15 feet remained corrected. Mean correction of the dorsiflexion was 24.5° and mean correction of anterior distal tibial angle was 10.9° at final review...

BACKGROUND: Injury to long thoracic and the spinal accessory nerves can cause winging scapula as a result of weakness and paralysis of the trapezius and serratus anterior muscles. Although these nerve and muscle operations have been reported to correct winging scapula due to various causes, there is no report on comparing the outcomes of these procedures in peer-reviewed Pubmed-indexed literature. In this article, we compared the improvements in the restoration of shoulder functions in winging scapula patients after long thoracic nerve decompression (LTND) in our present study with outcomes of muscle and tendon transfer operations published in the literature (Aetna cited articles)...

The plantar plate is a major structure that maintains metatarsophalangeal joint (MTPJ) stability and has only recently gained attention. Anatomic plantar plate repair can directly address the pathologic entity, rather than relying on indirect reduction of the MTPJ instability by osteotomy or tendon transfer techniques. The present report aimed to determine the effectiveness of plantar plate repair for the treatment of patients with lesser MTPJ instability. Different databases were searched using the guidelines in the Cochrane Handbook and recommendations from the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analysis statement...

BACKGROUND: The extensor digiti minimi (EDM) tendon is commonly divided into a radial slip (EDM-R) and an ulnar slip (EDM-U). To our knowledge, the degree to which each EDM slip concomitantly abducts the small finger with active extension has not been formally tested. This study sought to characterize the comparative contributions of finger abduction inherent to each slip of the EDM to observe the sequelae of active small finger extension following transfer of the contralateral slip. METHODS: Eighteen fresh-frozen cadaveric hands were used in this study...

Capsulolabral reconstruction (Bankart repair) is recommended as the first line treatment in young and functionally demanding active patients with anteroinferior shoulder instability, due to the high tendency to recurrent dislocation. This has become established both for arthroscopic and open primary shoulder stabilization with good clinical outcome; nevertheless, recurrence of dislocation is reported in up to 25% of patients. Risk factors for failed surgery are patient (e.g. young age, male gender and contact sports) and surgery (e...

Injury to the central slip of the extensor tendon may occur with open and also with closed injuries, such as volar dislocation of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint. For adequate treatment, it is necessary to identify all injured structures. Without appropriate primary management, the patient is likely to develop a subacute to chronic posttraumatic boutonnière deformity. A fixed boutonnière deformity requires recovery of joint mobility. Once joint mobility is achieved, secondary surgical reconstruction of the central slip can be performed with a tendon transfer or a tendon transplant...
