Abstract

Achilles tendinopathy (AT) s a degenerated disorder resulting from functional overload. especially during running and jumping, with some inflammatoryfeatures at the insertions, bursae, and paratenon. The Achilles tendon is poorly vascularized, especially in the middle third, and the consequent slow metabolic rate allows it to work at very low oxygen tensions but preventson the other hand a rapid healing. Purpose: To create an animal anodel to study a novel surgical technique employed in AT: transplanting some fibers of the soleus muscle into the tendon in order to improved its vasculation and healing and to study the histological appearance of the soleus graft incorporated in the tendon. Methods: We operated on 10 white New Zealand rabbits leight rabbits underwent the precedure, two rabbits the sham operation with incision of the tendon without graft). Two animals were euthanized at 1wk, 1, 2, and 3 months. Results: Histology showed that after 3 months the (nuscle fibers were still viable within the tendons, interspersed within connective tissue fibers. Tendon and muscle tissues were intimately fused. Conclusions: The peristence of the soleus muscle pedicle graft within the Achilles tendon tissue is an finit of sound blood supply. This surgical model is suitable for application in further studies on tendon healing.
