  • Prevalence of the Linburg-Comstock Anomaly in a Brazilian Population Sample. [Journal Article]
    Rev Bras Ortop (Sao Paulo). 2020 Jun; 55(3):317-322.Barreto LCA, Fernandes CH, … Faloppa F
  • Objective  To determine the prevalence of the Linburg-Comstock anomaly in a Brazilian population sample. Methods  A cross-sectional observational study was carried out between October 2017 and April 2018. We included male and female volunteers aged 18 years or older. The presence of the Linburg-Comstock anomaly was determined by performing the clinical tests described by Linburg and Comstock. The…
  • Importance of shear-wave elastography in prediction of Achilles tendon rupture. [Journal Article]
    Int Orthop. 2020 Jun 29 [Online ahead of print]Ivanac G, Lemac D, … Brkljacic B
  • CONCLUSIONS: Irrespective of the lack of difference in the subjective feeling assessed by AOFAS, the contralateral tendon in the patients with reconstructed Achilles tendon has significantly lower stiffness than healthy individuals. Therefore, contralateral tendons in patients who suffered from rupture are more prone to future ruptures.
  • Flexor Tendon Avulsion Injury Associated with Distal and Proximal Phalanx Fracture: A Case Report. [Journal Article]
    Tokai J Exp Clin Med. 2020 Jul 20; 45(2):97-101.Serigano K, Ikeda M, … Watanabe M
  • We present an extremely rare case of avulsion injury of the flexor digitorum profundus and the flexor digitorum superficialis tendons associated with fracture of the distal phalanx and bone bruise of the proximal phalangeal base of the small finger. Because of the nondisplaced transverse fracture of the distal phalanx, the early diagnosis of the injury was missed. The patient was treated with two…
  • Fingertip Injuries and Amputations: A Review of the Literature. [Review]
    Cureus. 2020 May 26; 12(5):e8291.Kawaiah A, Thakur M, … Hassan A
  • The fingertip is defined as the part of the digit distal to the insertion of the extensor and flexor tendons on the distal phalanx. Devastating injuries to the hand occur every year that lead fingertip amputations in thousands of people. The highest incidence rates are usually seen in children less than five years old and in adults over the age of 65. There are various presentations of injury tha…
  • The vascularization of the peroneal tendons: An anatomic study. [Journal Article]
    Foot Ankle Surg. 2020 Jun 15 [Online ahead of print]Mota Gomes T, Guerra-Pinto F, … Oliva XM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Peroneal tendons are well vascularized throughout their course, running through a common vincula, with vascularization provided by various arteries. Avascular areas were observed in the PBT, but none at the PLT.
  • Bilateral Quadriceps Tendon Repair with Suture Anchors: Case Series. [Journal Article]
    Perm J. 2020; 24Tucker JE, Jones CR
  • CONCLUSIONS: These quadriceps tendon ruptures occurred in patients with a predisposition to injury as a result of excessive weight bearing. When addressing bilateral quadriceps tendon ruptures in this patient population, we found that a suture anchor-based construct allows for a secure repair, early initiation of physical therapy, and a noted improvement in pain scores on the Visual Analog Scale.
  • Dynamic Touch as Common Ground for Enactivism and Ecological Psychology. [Journal Article]
    Front Psychol. 2020; 11:1257.Travieso D, Lobo L, … Jacobs DM
  • The main purpose of this article is to show that enactivism and ecological psychology share more aspects than is often recognized. Rather than debating about differences, commonalities between the approaches are illustrated with the example of dynamic touch. Dynamic touch is a form of touch that implies muscles and tendons and that allows the perception of hand-held objects that are wielded but n…
  • Tenolysis rate after zone 2 flexor tendon repairs. [Journal Article]
    Jt Dis Relat Surg. 2020; 31(2):281-285.Civan O, Gürsoy MK, … Karalezli MN
  • CONCLUSIONS: The repair of the FDP with FDS tendon increases the tenolysis rate in zone 2. The tenolysis rate does not change according to the number or distribution of injured fingers and gender of the patient.
  • Does methylene blue reduce adhesion during the healing process after tendon repair? [Journal Article]
    Jt Dis Relat Surg. 2020; 31(2):246-254.Boz M, Çakıcı H, … Çelik M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Histopathological and biomechanical results show that MB, which has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antimicrobial and antioxidant effects, reduces adhesion during the healing process after tendon repair. We think that local MB application, particularly in surgeries performed after this type of injury, will be beneficial on early rehabilitation and functional results.
  • Improved Tracking of Muscle Tendon Junctions in Ultrasound Images Using Speckle Reduction. [Journal Article]
    Stud Health Technol Inform. 2020 Jun 23; 271:1-8.Englmair B, Leitner C, Baumgartner C
  • Ultrasound imaging enables in-vivo investigations of muscle and tendon behaviour during human movement. Individual contributions of muscles and tendons to the behaviour of the whole muscle-tendon unit during locomotion are versatile. Therefore, movements of distinct landmarks, such as muscle tendon junctions are recorded and tracked in order to investigate internal dynamics of the muscle-tendon c…
  • Pregnancy and Lactation Impair Subchondral Bone Leading to Reduced Rat Supraspinatus Tendon Failure. [Journal Article]
    J Biomech Eng. 2020 Jun 25 [Online ahead of print]Fung A, Shetye S, … Soslowsky LJ
  • Pregnant women experience weight gain, gait changes, and biochemical fluctuations that impair joint function and alter the maternal skeleton. Hormonal changes increase pelvic ligament laxity in preparation for childbirth and affect peripheral joint laxity. Calcium demands also rise during pregnancy and lactation, resulting in reduced bone mineral density and maternal bone loss. Altered tendon pro…
  • Fibularis Intersection Syndrome - A Rare Cause of Lateral Foot Pain in Runners: A Case Report. [Journal Article]
    Am J Phys Med Rehabil. 2020 Jun 22 [Online ahead of print]Monsour M, Sangha H, … Mittal N
  • Running is a common cause of foot and ankle injuries. Accurate diagnosis is important for appropriate management to resolve the issue. For clarity of diagnoses the physician should be able to perform a thorough physical examination in conjunction with point of care ultrasound (POCUS). The authors report a case study of a young male runner with lateral ankle pain. Based on clinical assessment and …
  • Optimising the conservative management of closed tendinous mallet finger injury. [Journal Article]
    Emerg Nurse. 2020 Jun 23 [Online ahead of print]Duarte A
  • Mallet finger injuries are a common presentation in the emergency department. These injuries result from a forced flexion at the distal interphalangeal joint (DIPJ) that causes extensor tendon disruption, and possibly bone avulsion, at the base of the distal phalanx. This article describes the anatomy, mechanisms, classification and assessment of mallet finger injury. It reviews different types o…
  • Supramolecular-covalent hybrid polymers for light-activated mechanical actuation. [Journal Article]
    Nat Mater. 2020 Jun 22 [Online ahead of print]Li C, Iscen A, … Stupp SI
  • The development of synthetic structures that mimic mechanical actuation in living matter such as autonomous translation and shape changes remains a grand challenge for materials science. In living systems the integration of supramolecular structures and covalent polymers contributes to the responsive behaviour of membranes, muscles and tendons, among others. Here we describe hybrid light-responsi…
