Fluoroquinolones impair tendon healing in a rat rotator cuff repair model: a preliminary study

Abstract:
Background: Recent studies suggest that fluoroquinolone antibiotics predispose tendons to tendinopathy and/or rupture. However, no investigations on the reparative capacity of tendons exposed to fluoroquinolones have been conducted. Hypothesis: Fluoroquinolone-treated animals will have inferior biochemical, histological, and biomechanical properties at the healing tendon-bone enthesis compared with controls. Study Design:Controlled labor... Expand abstract
