  1. 1. The plantaris tendon in relation to the Achilles tendon in midportion Achilles tendinopathy studies on morphology, innervation and signalling substances

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Christoph Spang; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Plantaris tendon; Achilles tendon; Achilles tendinopathy; innervation; morphology;

    Abstract : Midportion Achilles tendinopathy (tendinosis) is a troublesome painful condition, often characterised by pain, local swelling, tenderness and functional disability. Despite extensive research, the pathogenesis is poorly understood and treatment remains challenging. Features related to the peritendinous connective tissue can be of importance. READ MORE

  2. 2. Influences of paratendinous innervation and non-neuronal substance P in tendinopathy studies on human tendon tissue and an experimental model of Achilles tendinopathy

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Gustav Andersson; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2010]

    Abstract : Pain of the musculoskeletal system is one of the most common reasons for people seeking medical attention, and is also one of the major factors that prevent patients from working. Chronic tendon pain, tendinopathy, affects millions of workers world-wide, and the Achilles tendon is an important structure often afflicted by this condition. READ MORE

  3. 3. Innervation patterns and locally produced signal substances in the human patellar tendon of importance when understanding the processes of tendinosis
