An experience with functional and physical and physical therapy employed postoperatively in 525 patients with injuries of 752 digital flexor tendons is reported. A primary suture on flexor tendons after the V.I. Rozov technic within the boundaries of the synovial-aponeurotic sheath was put on 252 fingers in 183 patients. Homoplasty of digital flexor tendons was performed in 342 patients (500 fingers), terms of the injury being from 2 months to 15 years.

Twenty-five patients, aged between 15 and 45 years old, who were athletically active, presented with jumper's knee (patellar tendinitis). By use of ultrasonographic examination, new and precise information was obtained that benefited the diagnosis, choice of treatment, and monitoring of the evolution of jumper's knee in our patients. In 18 of the 25 patients, only 1 knee was affected; in 7 of the patients, both knees were affected, thus making a total of 32 painful tendons.

There is a common misconception that symptomatic tendon injuries are inflammatory; because of this, these injuries often are mislabeled as "tendonitis."' Acute inflammatory tendinopathies exist, but most patients seen in primary care will have chronic symptoms suggesting a degenerative condition that should be labeled as "tendinosus" or "tendinopathy." Accurate diagnosis requires physicians to recognize the historical features, anatomy, and useful physical examination maneuvers for these common tendon problems.

The management of hamstring injuries can be described as vexed at best. One reason for this may be because of a lack of high-quality research into the methods of treatment, rehabilitation and prevention. As a result, an evidence-based approach to injury management does not exist. Management is based on clinical experience, anecdotal evidence and the knowledge of the biological basis of tissue repair. Previous hamstring injury is the most recognized risk factor for injury, which indicates that treatment approaches may be suboptimal under certain conditions.
