The blood supply of the calcaneal tendon.

Abstract:
The microvascular anatomy of the calcaneal tendon was investigated in cadaver tendons by injection of barium sulphate and indian ink and a quantitative study of intratendinous blood supply was made, using a computer-assisted image analysis system. There was a reduction in both the number and the mean relative area of vessels in the mid-section of the tendon. This area of reduced vascularity may be of significance in the pathogenesis of rupture.
