BACKGROUND: Surgical options for the unreconstructable elbow are limited to arthrodesis, total arthroplasty, or osteoarticular allograft reconstruction. Each of these options is limited by severe functional impairment and/or high complication rates. Vascularized allotransplantation of the elbow joint has the potential to mitigate these complications. In this study, we describe our technique for harvesting the elbow for vascularized joint transplantation and demonstrate the flap's vascularity using contrast angiography...

Tendons are directly associated with movement, amplifying power and reducing muscular work. Taking into account habitat and locomotor challenges faced by anurans, we identify the more conspicuous superficial tendons of a neotropical anuran group and investigate their relation to the former factors. We show that tendons can be visualized as an anatomical framework connected through muscles and/or fascia, and describe the most superficial tendinous layer of the postcranium of Leptodactylus latinasus. To analyze the relation between tendon morphology and ecological characters, we test the relative length ratio of 10 tendon-muscle (t-m) elements in 45 leptodactylid species while taking phylogeny into account...

A new surgical method is introduced offering a less invasive approach to reattach the medial retinaculum following acute patellar dislocation. This retrospective analysis comprised 12 cases of medial retinacular repair in 10 patients. The surgical technique achieved reinforced reattachment of the torn region of the medial retinaculum for improved patellar support and stabilization. During follow-up, no recurrent patellar dislocations occurred, except where one patient reported a subjective feeling of patellar dislocation...

We investigated the effects of the initial length of the muscle-tendon unit (MTU) and muscle pre-activation on muscle-tendon interactions during plantarflexion performed at maximal velocity. Ultrasound images of gastrocnemius medialis were obtained on 11 participants in three conditions: 1) active plantarflexion performed at maximal velocity from three increasingly stretched positions (10°, 20° and 30° dorsiflexion), 2) passive plantarflexion induced by a quick release of the ankle joint from the same three positions, and 3) pre-activation, which consisted of a maximal isometric con-traction of the plantarflexors at 10° of dorsiflexion followed by a quick release of ankle joint...

Tendons feature the crucial role to transmit the forces exerted by the muscles to the skeleton. Thus, an increase of the force generating capacity of a muscle needs to go in line with a corresponding modulation of the mechanical properties of the associated tendon to avoid potential harm to the integrity of the tendinous tissue. However, as summarized in the present narrative review, muscle and tendon differ with regard to both the time course of adaptation to mechanical loading as well as the responsiveness to certain types of mechanical stimulation...

Introduction: Cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX) is a rare autosomal recessive lipid storage disease caused by mutations of the CYP27A1 gene and deficiency of the sterol-27-hydroxylase enzyme in bile acid biosynthesis. It is characterized by the accumulation of cholestanol and bile alcohols in plasma, the formation of xanthomatous lesions in various tissues, and organ degeneration. This disorder is also associated with osteoporosis and increased risk of fracture. To date, only two CTX patients with femoral neck fractures have been reported...

AIMS: We conducted a study to identify factors that are prognostic of the outcome of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) for calcific tendinitis of the shoulder. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Since 1998, patients with symptomatic calcific tendinitis of the rotator cuff have been treated with ESWT using an electrohydraulic mode shockwave device. One year after ESWT, patients were grouped according to the level of resorption of calcification. RESULTS: Of 241 symptomatic shoulders, complete resorption (CR) of calcification occurred in 134 (CR group)...

Over the past few decades, applications of ultrasound (US) in drug delivery have been documented widely for local and site-specific release of bioactives in a controlled manner, after acceptable use in mild physical therapy for tendinitis and bursitis, and for high-energy applications in fibroid ablation, cataract removal, bone fracture healing, etc. US is a non-invasive, efficient, targetable and controllable technique. Drug delivery can be enhanced by applying directed US in terms of targeting and intracellular uptake...

The pes anserinus is a common tendon comprising the tendinous insertions of the sartorius, gracilis, and semitendinosus muscles. It inserts at the anteromedial aspect of the tibia and plays a significant role in stabilization of the medial side of the knee joint. The current article presents a case with recurrent lateral patellar dislocations causing chronic stress along the medial knee stabilizers and consecutive enthesophyte formation at the insertion of the pes anserinus tendon that showed a transverse fracture upon a subsequent incident of traumatic lateral patellar dislocation...

The quadratus plantae (QP) is a highly variable structure. A number of partly inexact descriptions of this entity have been provided in textbooks of anatomy. Although several authors have examined the QP, its exact site of origin and type of insertion have hitherto not been specified. The aim of this study has been to provide detailed qualitative and quantitative data about the number of heads, points of origin, and type of insertion of the QP. The QP in both feet of 50 formalin-fixed specimens of body donors (25 men and women) were analyzed by gross anatomical dissection...
