Changes of Material Elastic Properties during Healing of Ruptured Achilles Tendons Measured with Shear Wave Elastography: A Pilot Study

Frankewycz, Borys ; Henssler, Leopold ; Weber, Johannes ; Silva, Natascha Platz Batista da ; Koch, Matthias ; Jung, Ernst Michael ; Docheva, Denitsa ; Alt, Volker ; Pfeifer, Christian G.


Therapy options for ruptured Achilles tendons need to take into account the right balance of timing, amount and intensity of loading to ensure a sufficient biomechanical resilience of the healing tendon on the one hand, and to enable an adequate tensile stimulus on the other hand. However, biomechanical data of human Achilles tendons after rupture during the separate healing stages are unknown. ...
