Changes in Core Suture Geometry within Repaired Flexor Tendons: Investigations with a novel radiographic method

Tim Sebastian Peltz
Introduction: Early mobilization of a repaired deep flexor tendon promotes better outcomes than immobilization. Tension on the reconstruction, however, produces gap formation at the repair site, which is detrimental. The changes in the 3-dimensional suture geometry when a tendon repair is strained, [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
