The pathobiology and repair of tendon and ligament injury.

Author information

  • 1Department of Anatomy, University of Bristol, United Kingdom.


Injury of the collagenous structures comprising tendons and ligaments, either from acute trauma or from repetitive strain lesions, results in protracted periods of disability. The resolution of such injuries often fails to restore the normal morphologic and functional characteristics of the structure and, therefore, either compromises the future performance of the individual or predisposes to an increased risk of recurrent injury.
