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.
