Enthesis organs enthesitis has historically been considered as a disorder of a focal attachment site however, entheses together with adjacent tissues may form mini. · the integration of tendon into bone occurs at a specialized interface known as the enthesis the fibrous tendon to bone enthesis is functional organ. How can the answer be improved.
The enthesis itself, the sesamoid and periosteal fibrocartilage, the bursa, and the fat pad collectively comprise the achilles enthesis organ as originally defined 8 together, they all function in one way or another to reduce stress concentration at the enthesis itself. Lar enthesis organs were seen at 2 sites, the biceps brachii and patellar tendon insertions in all enthesis organs, sesamoid and/or periosteal fibrocartilage was.

An organ is group of tissues that work together to carry out a shared function the function of the enthesis organ is to provide a stable anchorage to the skeleton and to minimise damage at the insertion site which is subject to high levels of physical stress.
