Tendon Biomechanics
Newer methods of tendon repair have been developed and evaluated in a series of studies in our laboratory. Both the static and dynamic behaviour of a number of these repair techniques have been characterized by determining those capable of withstanding clinical loading. In addition, the ability of the repaired tendon to glide and function within its sheath has been investigated.
Four flexor tendon repairs that have been evaluated biomechanically in our laboratory. A) Tajima repair, core suture only; B) Tajima repair, core plus epitendon suture; C) Savage repair, core suture only; D) Savage repair, core plus epitendon suture.
