Gerber, C; Meyer, D C; Nuss, K M; Farshad, M (2011). Anabolic steroids reduce muscle damage caused by rotator cuff tendon release in an experimental study in rabbits. Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. American Volume, 93(23):2189-2195.
|Published Version (English)|
To our knowledge, this is the first documentation of partial prevention of important muscle alterations after retraction of the supraspinatus musculotendinous unit caused by tendon disruption. Nandrolone decanoate administration in the phase after tendon release prevented fatty infiltration of the supraspinatus muscle and reduced functional muscle impairment caused by myotendinous retraction in this rabbit rotator cuff model, but two of seven rabbits that received the drug developed infections.
