Korean J Pediatr 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Pediatric Allergy and Respiratory Center, Department of Pediatrics, Soonchunhyang University Seoul Hospital, Soonchunhyang University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia (MPP) has been generally susceptible to macrolides, however emergence of macrolide-resistant Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia (MRMP) has made the treatment of MPP challenging. MRMP rapidly spread after 2000s, especially in the Eastern Asia. MRMPs are more common in children and adolescents than in adults, which is likely related to the frequent use of macrolides for treatments of MP infections in children. Read More

Multi-scale Loading and Damage Mechanisms of Plantaris and Rat Tail Tendons.

J Orthop Res 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Delaware.

Tendinopathy, degeneration of tendon that leads to pain and dysfunction, is common in both sports and occupational settings, but multi-scale mechanisms for tendinopathy are still unknown. We recently showed that micro-scale sliding (shear) is responsible for both load transfer and damage mechanisms in rat tail tendon; however, rat tail tendon is a specialized non-load bearing tendon, and thus the load transfer and damage mechanisms are still unknown for load-bearing tendons. The objective of this study was to investigate the load transfer and damage mechanisms of load-bearing tendons using rat plantaris tendon. Read More

Effect of aging on the tendon structure and tendon-associated gene expression in mouse foot flexor tendon.

Biomed Rep 2019 Apr 13;10(4):238-244. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Department of Medicine for Motor Organs, Juntendo University Graduate School of Medicine, Tokyo 113-8421, Japan.

To evaluate the biological changes in tendons during the aging process, the present study examined the effect of aging on the tendon structure, distribution of collagen types I and III, and expression of tendon-associated genes, using flexor tendons in a mouse model. Histological assessment of the tendon structure and distribution of collagen types I and III were performed, and the expression of tendon-associated genes was evaluated in flexor digitorium longus tendons of young (8 weeks) and aged (78 weeks) female C57BL/6 mice. The results indicated that the Soslowsky score, based on the analysis of cellularity, fibroblastic changes, and collagen fiber orientation and disruption, was significantly increased, or worsened, in the tendons of the aged group compared with those in the young group.

Fasciotomy and Surgical Tenotomy for Chronic Achilles Insertional Tendinopathy .

J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 2019 Jan;109(1):1-8

Background: Achilles insertional tendon pathology is a common condition affecting a broad range of patients. When conservative treatments are unsuccessful, the traditional open resection, debridement, and reattachment of the Achilles tendon is a variably reliable procedure with significant risk of morbidity. Fasciotomy and surgical tenotomy using ultrasound-guided percutaneous microresection is used on various tendons in the body, but the efficacy has not been examined specifically for the Achilles tendon.

Quadriceps tendinopathy: a review, part 2-classification, prognosis, and treatment.

Ann Transl Med 2019 Feb;7(4):72

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Overuse injuries of the extensor mechanism of the knee are common in both athletes and non-athletes and usually occur during activities associated with repetitive loading, stress, and knee extension. Numerous reports have been published describing extensor mechanism injuries in athletes, but there is a paucity of studies that focus on quadriceps tendinopathy in the non-athlete population. In addition, there is no universally accepted classification system for tendon pathology. Read More

Quadriceps tendinopathy: a review-part 1: epidemiology and diagnosis.

Ann Transl Med 2019 Feb;7(4):71

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

Overuse injuries of the extensor mechanism of the knee are common in both athletes and non-athletes and usually occur during activities associated with repetitive loading, stress, and knee extension. Historically, they have been labeled as Jumper's knee due to the high prevalence seen in the athletic community. In many published reports, the name "patellar tendinopathy" is used to describe this disorder of the quadriceps tendon at the patellar insertion, and the names are often used interchangeably.

Astym therapy: a systematic review.

Ann Transl Med 2019 Feb;7(4):70

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, NY, USA.

Soft tissue dysfunction can result from the degeneration of tissues as in the case of degenerative tendinopathy or from the build-up of problematic scar tissue, which can be the result of several aggravating factors, including overuse injuries, acute or chronic trauma, or as a result of surgery. This dysfunction often results in impaired movement, pain, and swelling of the affected area, which can lead to patient dissatisfaction and a lower quality of life. These soft tissue dysfunctions also have a marked economic impact. Read More

The mechanical and biochemical properties of tail tendon in a rat model of obesity: Effect of moderate exercise and prebiotic fibre supplementation.

J Biomech 2019 Mar 30. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

Human Performance Laboratory, University of Calgary, AB, Canada; McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health, University of Calgary, AB, Canada. Electronic address:

The worldwide trajectory of increasing obesity rates is a major health problem precipitating a rise in the prevalence of a variety of co-morbidities and chronic diseases. Tendinopathy, in weight and non-weight bearing tendons, in individuals with overweight or obesity has been linked to metabolic dysfunction resulting from obesity. Exercise and dietary fibre supplementation (DFS) are common countermeasures to combat obesity and therefore it seems reasonable to assume that they might protect tendons from structural and mechanical damage in a diet-induced obesity (DIO) model.

Scand J Med Sci Sports 2019 Apr 3. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Center for Human Movement Sciences, University Medical Center Groningen, University of Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relation between external and internal load and the response of the patellar tendon structure assessed with ultrasound tissue characterization (UTC) in elite male volleyball players during preseason. Eighteen players were followed over 7 weeks, measuring four load parameters during every training and match: volume (minutes played), rating of perceived exertion (RPE) (ranging from 6 to 20), weekly load (RPE*volume), and jump frequency (number of jumps). Patellar tendon structure was measured biweekly using UTC, which quantifies tendon matrix stability resulting in four different echo types (I-IV). Read More

Sequential, but not Concurrent, Incubation of Cathepsin K and L with Type I Collagen Results in Extended Proteolysis.

Sci Rep 2019 Apr 1;9(1):5399. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

W.H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University, 313 Ferst Dr NW, Atlanta, GA, 30332, USA.

Degradation of extracellular matrix (ECM) during tendinopathy is, in part, mediated by the collagenolytic cathepsin K (catK) and cathepsin L (catL), with a temporal component to their activity. The objective of this study was to determine how catK and catL act in concert or in conflict to degrade collagen and tendon ECM during tissue degeneration. To do so, type I collagen gels or ECM extracted from apolipoprotein E deficient mouse Achilles tendons were incubated with catK and catL either concurrently or sequentially, incubating catK first, then catL after a delayed time period.

Comparative assessment of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression secondary to intrabursal injection of different glucocorticoids: a pilot study.

J Endocrinol Invest 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Division of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, IRCCS Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute, Bologna, Italy.

Background: Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPAA) suppression is the most common and dangerous, although often unrecognized and untreated, side effect of glucocorticoid administration. The risk and duration depend both on patient and treatment characteristics. High-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) currently represents the gold standard method to evaluate the metabolism of endogenous and exogenous steroids. Read More
