Superficial digital flexor tendon healing: ultrasonographic evaluation of therapies.

Author information

Department of Clinical Studies, Section of Sports Medicine and Imaging, New Bolton Center, University of Pennsylvania, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, USA.


Until recently, it was difficult to critically evaluate tendon healing in vivo. Superficial digital flexor tendon injuries were considered healed when the injured tendon was cold, non-painful, adequate time had passed for tendon healing to occur, and no recurrence of the injury was detected when the horse returned to athletic work. This article discusses how ultrasonography has revolutionized the diagnosis, treatment, and management of tendon injuries.
