Özet

Background/objectives: Structural and functional impairments of the Achilles tendon in diabetic patients has the potential to contribute to ulcer formation through altered foot mechanics. This study aimed to examine the biomechanical and histopathological alterations in Achilles tendon specimens from diabetic vs. non-diabetic individuals.
