Tendons are fibrous connective tissues which lead to transmission o f musclecontraction

for ceto the bone fo reffective moving of limbs. The commoncalcanean tendon is for med

by lateral and medial gastrocnmius, soleus and superficial digital flex or tendon. The

commoncalcaneal tendon is at tachedto the tubercalcanei.

Inthisstudy it was aimedtoreveal macro-anatomical, histological structure sand

mechanical properties of common calcanean tendon. Achillestendon of rightandlefthindlimb

of 5 adult New Zealandrabbitused in thisstudy. Results shared which was obtained from

project of morphology and mechanicalproperties of tendo of rabbit.

Data recorded which was obtained with dissection of commoncal canean tendon.

Tissues stained with Crossman's triplestainingtechnic in ordertodetermineoverall

histological structure and obtained resultse valuated semiquantatively. Macroanatomic

and histological data visualized with photographs. Tensile and tearstrength tests appliedto

the tendons in Autograph machine with 2 mm/min speed. Results revealed to form of

several tables and graphics.
