BACKGROUND: Penetrating trauma or lacerations within zone II of the flexor sheath may result in partial tendon injury. The proper management of this injury is controversial; the literature contains differing indications for surgical treatment and post-operative rehabilitation. METHODS: A literature review of the Cochrane, Medline and Pubmed databases was performed using the following search criteria: partial, flexor, tendon, laceration. All English language studies that evaluated biomechanical strength, complications, and outcomes after partial tendon injury in human and animal studies were included and reviewed by two of the authors...

BACKGROUND: Chronic Achilles tendon ruptures can lead to reduced power of plantar flexion in the ankle with impaired gait ability. The open 1- or 2-incision technique for flexor hallucis longus transfer has proven good functional outcome but has the disadvantage of relatively extensive surgery performed at a vulnerable location. To reduce the risk of soft tissue problems, the flexor hallucis longus transfer can be performed endoscopically. MATERIAL AND METHOD: An endoscopic technique for flexor hallucis longus transfer is presented together with the experiences from the first six patients operated with this method...

Superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT) of the bovine hindlimb originates from the caudolateral aspect of the distal femur and finally inserts onto the plantar aspect of the middle phalanges. In the present study, morphology and morphometry of the bovine SDFT at the muscle-tendon junction (MTJ), middle metatarsus (mM) and tendon-bone interface (TBI) were investigated. Cross-sectional morphology at the three regions of SDFT were oval, semioval and ring-formed, respectively. Significant difference in cross-sectional area was found only between MTJ-mM and mM-TBI (P<0...

Subject-specific musculoskeletal models require accurate values of muscle moment arms. The aim of this study was to compare moment arms of wrist tendons obtained from non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to those obtained from an in vitro experimental approach. MRI was performed on ten upper limb cadaveric specimens to obtain the centrelines for the flexor carpi radialis (FCR), flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU), extensor carpi radialis longus (ECRL), extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB), extensor carpi ulnaris (ECU), and abductor pollicis longus (APL) tendons...

Introduction  Pyogenic flexor tenosynovitis (PFT) of the hand remains a challenging problem that often requires surgical irrigation and parenteral or oral antibiotics. The authors hypothesize that the pathophysiology and microenvironment of PFT can be likened to that of periprosthetic joint infections (PJIs), in which bacteria thrive in a closed synovial space with limited blood supply. As such, they postulate that PFT is also facilitated by bacterial attachment and biofilm formation rendering standard treatments less effective...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) grafts that are placed for reconstruction are subject to complex forces. Current "anatomic" ACL reconstruction techniques may result in greater in situ graft forces. The biological effect of changing magnitudes of ACL graft force on graft-tunnel osseointegration is not well understood. PURPOSE: The research objective is to determine how mechanical force on the ACL graft during knee motion affects tendon healing in the tunnel...

OBJECTIVE: To compare knee isokinetic performance six months after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament using grafts from either the patellar tendon or the hamstrings among patients who underwent the same rehabilitation protocol. METHODS: Thirty-four patients were evaluated (17 with grafts from the patellar tendon and 17 with grafts from the hamstrings). Operated and non-operated knees were compared with regards to the variables of peak torque, work and the hamstring/quadriceps relationship at velocities of 60º/s and 180º/s and power of 180º/s after six months of surgery...

Triggering of the toes is rare, with isolated cases reported in the literature involving predominantly the flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon, a condition known as "hallux saltans" (HS). We report the dynamic sonographic findings of a 42-year-old female with a 2-month history of ankle pain and triggering of right hallux, consistent with HS. Sonography demonstrated tenosynovitis and focal thickening of FHL at the level of hindfoot, with a fibrous band adjacent to the tendon. Dynamic ultrasound showed triggering and snapping of FHL tendon during hallux flexion and extension, respectively...

Giant cell tumors of the tendon sheath (GCT-TS) are one of the most common tumors of the hand, along with ganglions. However, occurrence in the toes is far less common. Here we present a rare case of GCT-TS at the middle phalanx level of the flexor digitorum longus tendon sheath. Magnetic resonance imaging showed low intensity both on T1 and T2 weighted images. To the best of our knowledge, our case is the first report of a GCT-TS arising at the middle phalanx level of the flexor digitorum longus tendon sheath of the fourth toe...

A 66-year-old man with a history of renal transplant on chronic immunosuppression presented to his primary care physician with a swollen right index finger. On examination, mild swelling was present. Conservative management failed and initial plain films were negative. Corticosteroid injection was performed by orthopaedics, but symptoms recurred several months later and an MRI showed flexor digitorum tenosynovitis and abscesses of the superficialis and profundus tendons. A flexor tenolysis was performed with cultures positive for Mycobacterium szulgai, a rare, non-tuberculous mycobacterial infection...

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...

Pre-surgical investigation of digital flexor tendon sheath pathology remains challenging with current standard imaging techniques. The aim of this prospective, anatomical, pilot study was to describe the anatomy of the equine hind limb digital flexor tendon sheath using a combination of computed tomography (CT) and computed tomographic contrast tenography in clinically normal cadaver limbs. Ten pairs of hind limbs with no external abnormalities were examined from the level of the tarsometatarsal joint distally...

Tendon grafts are a component of the therapeutic arsenal for managing chronic flexor tendons injuries in the hand, especially during two-stage Hunter reconstruction. The purpose of this anatomical study was to compare the strength of the Pulvertaft weave versus the step-cut suture used for flexor tendon reconstruction to determine their role in early active mobilization. We performed a biomechanical study with cadaver specimens. Thirty-four hands were randomized and the tendons from both hands were equally assigned to each group...

In the human hand, independent movement control of individual fingers is limited. One potential cause for this is mechanical connections between the tendons and muscle bellies corresponding to the different fingers. The aim of this study was to determine the tendon displacement of the flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) of both the instructed and the neighboring, non-instructed fingers during single finger flexion movements. In nine healthy subjects (age 22-29 years), instructed and non-instructed FDS finger tendon displacement of the index, middle and ring finger was measured using 2D ultrasound analyzed with speckle tracking software in two conditions: active flexion of all finger joints with all fingers free to move and active flexion while the non-instructed fingers were restricted...

Post activation potentiation (PAP) is a phenomenon in which muscular force is acutely enhanced as a result of prior contractile activity. The net augmentation is dependent upon the intensity of the preceding conditioning contraction influencing calcium release and phosphorylation of the regulatory myosin light chain. This phenomenon has been recorded after various types of conditioning contractions, however the interaction of a warmup on PAP remains uncertain and whether this differs between males and females requires consideration...
