The effect of pulsed electromagnetic fields on flexor tendon healing in chickens


This study was designed as a pilot investigation of the effect of pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) stimulation on early flexor tendon healing in a chicken model using a similar stimulus to that used clinically. The PEMF used caused a decrease in tensile strength and an increase in peritendinous adhesions.
