Helical cutting as a new method for tendon-lengthening in continuity


Farshad, M; Gerber, C; Snedeker, J G; Meyer, D C (2011). Helical cutting as a new method for tendon-lengthening in continuity. Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. American volume, 93(8):733-738.

Abstract

Helical cutting reliably leaves the tendon in continuity, allows more lengthening than that which can be achieved with z-plasty, and can offer improved resistance to tensile loads.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
