Entheses are complex structures which act to reduce stress concentrations between tendon and skeleton tissues. Understanding the development and function of the enthesis organ has implications for surgical repair, particularly in regards to healing and the regulation of tendon to bone engraftment. In this paper we review the development and function of entheses as well as the enthesis organ concept. Next we examine the process of tendon to bone healing and how this can be regulated, before addressing implications for surgical repair and post-operative care.
