Summary

The investigation was under taken to study the long-term effect of tendon suturing on the capillarization of guinea-pig crural muscle after Achilles tenotomy. The results indicate that the capillary density has been greatly decreased by the tenotomy. The recapillarization and the time of restitution of the crural muscle are influenced by the interval between tenotomy and tendon suture.
