When insertional Achilles tendinopathy is addressed surgically via a central-Achilles splitting approach, the calcaneal osteotomy has classically been performed from distal to proximal. We describe a simple proximal to distal technique that allows optimal resection of both the calcaneal exostosis and Achilles enthesophyte, minimizes risk to the soft tissues and skin, provides a bony attachment surface parallel to the axis of the Achilles tendon, and avoids the risk of osteotomy extension into the subtalar joint...

Tendon injury belongs to the less known side effects of some drugs, reported until recently only for glucocorticoids and fluoroquinolones. To date, some other classes of drugs such as statins, aromatase inhibitors, anabolic steroids, potentially causing tendon injury, have been added to the list. The authors discuss the most common clinical presentations, diagnosis, and management as well as latest experimental data regarding this issue. The most often, the Achilles tendon is affected, however, nearly every tendon of the entire body may be affected...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to examine the quantitative tissue properties of the Achilles tendon and plantar fascia using a handheld, non-invasive MyotonPRO device, in order to generate normal values and examine the biomechanical relationship of both structures. DESIGN: Prospective study of a large, healthy sample population. PARTICIPANTS: The study sample included 207 healthy subjects (87 males and 120 females) for the Achilles tendon and 176 healthy subjects (73 males and 103 females) for the plantar fascia...

Metabolic factors such as cholesterol appear to play an important role in the development of Achilles tendinopathy. There is, however, no morphologic proof explaining the link between high cholesterol and tendinopathy. As apolipoprotein A1 (Apo-A1) is essential for reverse cholesterol transport, it may be related to cholesterol overload in tendon. Nothing is known about Apo-A1 expression in tendon tissue. We examined the distribution of Apo-A1 protein in biopsies from normal and tendinopathy affected human Achilles tendons, and APOA1 mRNA production from cultured human hamstring tenocytes...

Achilles tendinopathy is a common cause of disability. Despite the economic and social relevance of the problem, the causes and mechanisms of Achilles tendinopathy remain unclear. Tendon vascularity, gastrocnemius-soleus dysfunction, age, sex, body weight and height, pes cavus, and lateral ankle instability are considered common intrinsic factors. The essence of Achilles tendinopathy is a failed healing response, with haphazard proliferation of tenocytes, some evidence of degeneration in tendon cells and disruption of collagen fibers, and subsequent increase in noncollagenous matrix...

Due to the increasing age of our society and a rise in engagement of young people in extreme and/or competitive sports, both tendinopathies and tendon ruptures present a clinical and financial challenge. Tendon has limited natural healing capacity and often responds poorly to treatments, hence it requires prolonged rehabilitation in most cases. Till today, none of the therapeutic options has provided successful long-term solutions, meaning that repaired tendons do not recover their complete strength and functionality...

Issue: Lower extremity tendon injuries often occur in physically active individuals. Most ruptures not involving great force are diagnosed in patients presenting underlying tendon degenerations. This also applies to patients taking medications because of a disease. We have observed several cases of bilateral Achilles tendon ruptures in patients who have been taking cortisone for a long period. We treated a healthy colleague (neurologist) in our clinic who sustained ruptures of the Achilles tendon on the left side (2012) and the peroneus brevis tendon on left side (2015) and right side (2016) after minimal traumata...

BACKGROUND: Midportion Achilles tendinopathy (AT) can cause long-term absence from sports participation, and shows high recurrence rates. It is important that the decision to return to sport (RTS) is made carefully, based on sharply delimited criteria. Lack of a well-defined definition and criteria hampers the decision to RTS among athletes with AT, and impedes comparison of RTS rates between different studies. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to systematically review the literature for definitions of, and criteria for, RTS in AT research...

NEW FINDINGS: What is the central question of this study? The aim was to determine the effect of mid-portion Achilles tendinopathy (MAT) on free Achilles tendon three-dimensional morphology and volume at rest and under load in people with unilateral MAT. What is the main finding and its importance? Tendinopathic tendon had a larger resting tendon cross-sectional area and anteroposterior diameter relative to healthy tendon. When loaded, tendinopathic tendon experienced a reduction in transverse morphology (i...

Achilles tendinopathy can be a chronic disabling condition affecting both athletic and sedentary patients. Multiple new treatment approaches have developed, including shock wave therapy and various types of injection. One of the novel treatment methods used is the injection of Aethoxysklerol or polidocanol, a sclerosing substance injected under ultrasound guidance targeting areas of neovascularisation. We report the case of a 78-year-old lady who suffered a complete Achilles tendon rupture following injection of Aethoxysklerol...

We thank Wu (2017) and the editors for the opportunity to provide greater discussion on the association of tendon shear wave velocity (SWV) with potentially important covariates including sex and age. We would like to first clarify that we did not directly compare the Achilles and patellar tendinopathy groups. Instead, the (most) affected tendon from each tendinopathy group was compared with a matched tendon from the healthy control group. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: We aimed to investigate the diagnostic accuracy with which shear wave elastography (SWE) can be used to monitor response to treatment of tendinopathies, and to compare it to conventional ultrasound (US)-imaging methods (B-mode US (B-US) and power Doppler US (PD-US)). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective Institutional Review Board-approved longitudinal study on 35 patients with 47 symptomatic tendons (17 Achilles-, 15 patellar-, and 15 humeral-epicondylar) who underwent standardized multimodal US and standardized clinical assessment before and after 6 months of treatment (tailored stretching exercise, sport break, and local Polidocanol) was carried out...

Insertional Achilles tendinopathy (IAT) is a frequent cause of posterior heel pain and is often associated with Haglund's deformity. Surgical correction for refractory cases of IAT has been well studied; however, the method of tendon fixation to bone in these procedures remains controversial, and to date, no standard technique has been identified for tendon fixation in these surgeries. Often, after Haglund's resection, there is large exposed cancellous surface for Achilles reattachment, which may require unique fixation to optimize outcomes...

BACKGROUND: The ultrastructural alterations related to tendinopathy have not been well described. Most studies on this subject have been conducted many years ago and focused on material from the Achilles tendon. It was demonstrated that various comorbidities can affect ultrastructural alterations in the advanced tendinopathy, however there is very little data on ultrastructural morphology in tendinopathies related to mechanical overload as in case of the long head of the biceps brachii tendon (LHBT)...

BACKGROUND: Recent investigation of human tissue and cells from positional tendons such as the rotator cuff has clarified the importance of inflammation in the development and progression of tendon disease. These mechanisms remain poorly understood in disease of energy-storing tendons such as the Achilles. Using tissue biopsies from patients, we investigated if inflammation is a feature of Achilles tendinopathy and rupture. METHODS: We studied Achilles tendon biopsies from symptomatic patients with either mid-portion tendinopathy or rupture for evidence of abnormal inflammatory signatures...

PURPOSE AND HYPOTHESIS: Mid-portion Achilles tendinopathy is characterized by a proliferation of small vessels, called neovascularization, which can be demonstrated by power Doppler sonography (PD). Neovascularization can be correlated with diagnosis and consequent therapies focused on vascular supply. Published data regarding the relationship between neovascularisation and symptoms, such as pain and disability, are contradictory. The hypothesis that contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) could detect with more sensibility than PD the new vessel ingrowth in human degenerated Achilles tendons and therefore the correlation of neovascularization with pain and disability, was evaluated...

The transfer of the flexor hallucis longus tendon or flexor digitorum longus tendon is frequently used for the treatment of posterior tibial tendon insufficiency or chronic Achilles tendinopathy. According to several anatomical studies, harvesting the flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon may cause nerve injury. Sixty-eight embalmed feet were dissected and anatomically classified to define the relationship between Henry's knot and the plantar nerves. Two different configurations were identified. In Pattern 1, which was observed in 64 specimens (94...
