Dr. Günhan KARAKURUM, Dr. Akif GÜLEÇ, Dr. Orhan BÜYÜKBEBECİ, Dr. Erdoğan KARADAĞ.

Abstract
We present a preliminary study describing the flexor tendon anatomy of the ostrich foot with special emphasis on its eligibility for the biomechanical experiments carried out to test new suture designs. Feet obtained from three mature ostriches were dissected and the anatomic features were described. Four tendon specimens each with 25 cm of length and with comparable diameter to the human tendons were obtained from each foot.

Key words: Ostrich Tendons, Biomechanical Tendon Experiments
