Abstract

The authors analysed 110 cases of spontaneous tendon ruptures for the histological and ultrastructural changes in the tendons and corresponding muscles, which were removed within 48 hours following the rupture. In spontaneous tendon ruptures the inner structure of the tendon (the stereostructure of the fibrous web) is damaged. Spontaneous tendon rupture is an outcome of a long process, poor in clinical symptoms. At the beginning of this process a necrosis of the tendon and inflammation may be found. If a rupture does not come about, granulation and cicatrisation develop and the tendon might rupture at this stage, too. Prior to spontaneous tendon ruptures, muscle atrophy develops due to inactivity, attributable to the fact that the patient attempts to spare the damaged tendon and muscle.
