Therefore, we studied the influence of estradiol on tendon synthesis, structure and biomechanical properties in postmenopausal women.

Synthesis of tendon collagen was determined by stable isotope incorporation (fractional synthesis rate (FSR)) and microdialysis technique (N-terminal propeptide of type I collagen synthesis, PINP)). Tendon area and fibril characteristics were determined by MRI and transmission electron microscopy, whereas tendon biomechanical properties were measured during isometric maximal voluntary contraction by ultrasound recording. Tendon FSR was markedly higher in ERT-users (P<0.001), whereas no group difference was seen in tendon PINP (P=0.32).
