Wounds with exposed bone without periosteum or exposed tendons without paratenon were excluded from the study as they required special surgical procedures for definitive closure and were liable to create the bias.
Se inyecto PRP en la vaina paratenon y el tejido lacerado circundante luego el paratenon se cerro cuidadosamente con una sutura absorbible.
Then, a fascial flap was harvested by preserving the paratenon [Figure 1].
In all experimental groups, there were significant adhesions characterized by loose fibrous filaments between the tendon and the surrounding epitenon and paratenon tissues, which thickened due to highly vascular and oedematous granulation tissue.
Along with its course in the posterior aspect of the leg, the tendon spirals 30-150Adeg until it inserts into the calcaneal tuberosity on an area without a periosteal layer.1 The gliding ability of the AT is aided by a thin sheath of paratenon rather than a true synovial sheath.
In both groups, end-toend modified Krackow suture technique [12] was performed after longitudinal incision of the fascia and paratenon. To maintain the Achilles length in PRP group, only blood clots were removed.
(2) Split thickness skin grafts must not be used in wounds with exposed bone without periosteum, exposed tendon without paratenon, and exposed vessels or nerves.
Pseudotumoral tophaceous involvement of the achilles paratenon. JBR-BTR 2015;98:34-6.
Normal fibroblastic response at the site of repair could be modified by the administration of triamcinolone either intramuscularly or by injecting into the paratenon and loose subcutaneous tissue near the tendon repair site.
The close anatomical relationship of the CF with the Achilles paratenon (AP) has recently been described.
The skin flaps were created and the incision was sharply carried down through the transverse fibres of the paratenon. The paratenon was incised at its midpoint to expose the entire width of the patellar tendon.
