Transfer of the Flexor Hallucis Longus Tendon for Neglected and Degenerative Tendo Achillis Rupture: A Prospective Clinical Study

SUMMARY Introduction. The Achilles tendon is one of the most frequently ruptured tendons in the human body. Surgical management commonly includes end to end repairs in acute tears, and chronic ruptures require autologous tendon transfer with Flexor hallucis longus or Flexor digitorum longus. Methods. A longitudinal observational study was done on 22 confirmed cases of chronic Achilles tendon rupture. … Continued

Radial versus Combined Shockwave Therapy in the Management of Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy: Similar Functional Outcomes in Running Cohort

SUMMARY Background. Proximal hamstring tendinopathy is a common cause of gluteal pain. Extracorporeal shockwave therapy may be an effective treatment in proximal hamstring tendinopathy. However, published outcomes are primarily limited to evaluating radial shockwave, and the use of combined treatment (focus and radial treatment) and outcomes for management in runners are not well described. The … Continued
