Abstract

Backround. Different suture materials are preferable for the repair of Achilles tendon ruptures. The effect of the sutures on the biological level on a repair scenario is still tentative. The purpose of this study is to show the effects of Vicryl (R), Ethibond (R) and PDS (R) II on Achilles tendons at mRNA levels.
