Paper Abstract

In order to study the biological reaction of patellar tendons from which a graft had been harvested, we have developed a ultrasonographic methode that furnishes three transaxial and one longitudinal scan of the operated and the non operated knee for comparison. Width and thickness can be measured in mm for scaling by a metric device in the scanner. A specially created computer-program using a definite digitizing system allows a very accurate calculation of the patellar tendon-volume for conclusions about recovery of the dimensions before graft harvesting.
