Chronic Achilles tendon rutpure augmented by transposition of the fibularis brevis and fibularis longus muscles


Diserens, Kevin A; Venzin, Claudio (2015). Chronic Achilles tendon rutpure augmented by transposition of the fibularis brevis and fibularis longus muscles. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 157(9):519-524.

Abstract

A 1 year and 8 months old castrated male Pyrenean mountain dog was presented with an Achilles tendon rupture at least 5 weeks old. The defect between the two tendon ends was 2 cm in full extension of the tarsal joint. A new technique was successfully applied; a transposition and tenodesis of the fibularis brevis and fibularis longus muscles, combined with a 3 loop pulley suture and a tensor fascia lata graft. A transarticular external fixator was used for the first 3.5 weeks after surgery and a splint for the two following weeks. A 3 years follow-up shows the dog walking without any lameness.

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.
