While the artificial tendon is absorbed and change into human self-tendon, it can be used as the tendon on the affected region effectively.
A tapered tendon graft anchor employed during a tendon graft reconstruction surgical procedure.
The first steering tendon (54) is attached to the distal-end region (24) and the second steering tendon (56) is attached to the distal-end region at a location proximal the attachment point of the first steering tendon.
Ultimately, the artificial tendon according to this invention may change into human self-tendon completely, therefor it has overcome the drawbacks of the human tendon replacement in the art.
An elongate tendon (19) is disposed longitudinally within the tube and in connection at or towards one end of the tendon with the expander mechanism and in connection at or towards an opposite end of the tendon with an anchor arrangement (13).

Once the tendon is passed through its sheath, the tube is removed by pulling it off the end of the tendon using the threads.
Once deployed, the anchor delivers lateral compression to the tendon, providing direct tendon to bone compression to facilitate healing.
One or more of the tendon repair devices may be used to repair each tendon, optionally with perimeter stitching at the rejoined ends.
The graft can includes any one or more of the set comprising: a transplant tendon, an artificial tendon, a transplant ligament, and an artificial ligament.
A tendon anchoring device may include an implant having a pair of spaced apart legs for straddling a tendon.
The tendon (452) is also coupled to an actuator assembly that provides forces that push and pull (push/pull) the tendon.
A toy construction system comprising a releasably connectable tendon or tether ("tendon") to connect to at least two building blocks.
Said material could be used in the reconstruction of ligaments and tendons (the knee cruciate ligaments, patellar ligament, Achilles tendon, quadriceps tendon, etc.) and the synovial capsule.
The tendon cell is also fabricated from a flexible material.
This tendon guard is preferably sewn to the quarter.
An equine tendon boot system is provided.
