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.
