US-guided high-volume injection for Achilles tendinopathy

the commonest lower limb tendon to rupture, but also it is most frequently impaired as a result of overuse leading to tendinopathy(3). Chronic midportion Achilles tendinopathy is a common overuse injury that is often long-standing. Over the past three decades, the incidence has been rising because of greater participation in sports activities. Runners are most at risk of developing symptoms, with a lifetime risk of 52%(4). However, patients with this condition do not always participate in vigorous

Achilles tendon degeneration on ultrasound in type 2 diabetic patients

Introduction The Achilles tendon (AT) is the largest, toughest, and strongest tendon in the human body, formed when the aponeurosis of the soleus and gastrocnemius muscles combine(1). It extends from the myotendinous junction distally to its insertion site on the upper half of the posterior surface of the calcaneus. It is approximately 15 cm long and 6 mm thick(1). Tendinopathy is one of the musculoskeletal manifestations of diabetes mellitus. Diabetes mellitus (DM) causes pathological changes

The corresponding ultrasound image shows the needle (arrows) inserted obliquely with the in-plane technique and lateral-to-medial direction, with the needle tip placed into the bursa (asterisks) Calcific tendinopathy Rotator cuff calcific tendinopathy (RCCT) is one of the most frequent causes of atraumatic shoulder pain(19) caused by the calcium deposition in the rotator cuff(20,21). RCCT is found in 10 to 42% of chronic painful shoulders(19) and is more

Shoulder ultrasound: current concepts and future perspectives

of this article, but in our practice we usually refer to the ESSR Technical Guidelines(6). Indications LHBT and rotator cuff evaluation All shoulder tendons are examined in short and long axis, sometimes with gentle toggling of the transducer to eliminate the anisotropy artefact that may mimic tendinopathy or a tear. The LHBT is usually scanned from the proximal (superior aspect of the bicipital groove) to the distal (pectoralis major tendon-humerus attachment) aspect, firstly in the

The interrater reliability of ultrasonography for Achilles tendon structure

Introduction Achilles tendinopathy is a condition that is clinically characterized by pain, swelling and impaired function, typically related to sports or exercise overuse(1,2). The average age at the first presentation is 43 years(3). However, in highly active subjects, tendinopathy can occur at a younger age(4). Achilles tendon disorders are common in military personnel. Individuals who are overweight, report moderate alcohol use and those with a prior diagnosis of tendinopathy are at higher
