In collaboration with the Elliott Lab at UD, we aimed to experimentally track the tissue-scale strains of the tendon–bone attachment with and without a localized defect.
Regardless of the attachments’ ability to reduce localized stress, rotator cuff tendon injuries are common and occur predominantly near the tendon–bone attachment. In this work, we mapped the localized strain at the attachment in intact attachments and attachments with defects. Read the PDF here
