Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


On the basis of 617 investigated human tendons the tendon lypomatosis were analysed. On the tendons of the patients who died by accident, the developmental course of the tendolipomatosis was followed by light and scanning electron microscopy. It was established that the appearance of lipocytes disrupt the continuity of tendon bundles, in this manner diminishing the load-bearing capacity of tendons.
