Surgical repair of complete proximal hamstring tendon ruptures

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1725274/

CONCLUSION: Complete rupture of the hamstring origin is a potentially devastating sports injury that has implications affecting the individual's activities of daily living as well as potential as a sportsperson.
