Ultrasound guided electrocoagulation in patients with chronic non-insertional Achilles tendinopathy: a pilot study
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
High resolution colour Doppler ultrasound shows intratendinous Doppler activity in patients with chronic Achilles tendinopathy. Treatment of this neovascularisation with sclerosing therapy seems to relieve the pain. However, the procedure often has to be repeated.
