Tendinopathy is a general term indicating any abnormal state of a tendon, including pain, dysfunction, and, but not necessarily, pahology. 1 , 2 Pathological tendons are defined as having abnormal changes on imaging (eg, increased signal intensity on magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] or hypoechoic

Another reason to limit our investigation to the early postoperative period was because it is difficult to have a homogenous cohort of patients who follow the same protocol of

To put this failure in context, my PhD student

For the post hoc assessment, the standardized residual of the break frequencies for the athletes was −2
