dc.description.abstractProximal patellar tendinopathy occurs as a common overuse injury in sport. It is unclear why the condition mainly affects the posteromedial part of the proximal tendon enthesis. Radiological, histological and magnetic resonance imaging techniques of this study suggest that the mechanical stresses in the affected areas are asymmetrically distributed, creating greater loading on the medial side and leading to variation in the bone structure. These findings are unique in that they may provide an explanation for the location of the symptoms and thus may contribute to future treatment.
