Steroids Improve Tendon Repair After Surgery – Health Positives of Steroids

Posted By

We always talk about steroid abuse in this blog, how about for a change we talk about the health benefits of using steroids and yes there are many health benefits to anabolic steroids.

A recent study on anabolic steroids done by University of North Carolina has show that steroids may improve tendon repair after surgery by improving protein in each tendon cell or by increasing the ablity of the tendon cells to communicate.

What an amazing discovery? Steroids curing people after surgery? I mean that’s unheard of, but on the contrary it’s true.  Steroids have many health benefits unlike people state.  No matter the recent stunts by CHris benoit and such, these drugs will and have always been somewhat beneficial to health if NOT abused.

Remember, the media tries to feed you lies and hype about steroids, but this is medical science at work showing you the benefits of proper use of this wonderful and potentially life saving drug.

Steroids May Improve Tendon Repair After Surgery

Anabolic steroids are against the rules for professional athletes, but preliminary research suggests that steroids may help repair a shoulder injury that affects many professional and weekend athletes.

In lab experiments using bioengineered tendons, researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill found that tendons treated with an anabolic steroid were stronger than untreated tendons. “In a highly experimental model, anabolic steroids do appear to improve the quality of rotator cuff tendon tissue,” lead author Dr. Spero G. Karas told.

Most likely, steroids help by improving protein production in each tendon cell or by boosting the way tendon cells communicate with each other, Karas said. But don’t expect doctors to start prescribing anabolic steroids to people who have rotator cuff surgery any time soon. Karas cautioned that much more testing needs to be done. “If enough testing can conclude that this treatment is effective, then of course we could attempt it in humans with difficult rotator cuff injuries,” Karas said.

The rotator cuff is made up of the muscles and tendons that hold the upper arm bone to the shoulder. When the rotator cuff is injured, surgery may be performed to repair it. Unfortunately, healing after surgery is often incomplete and many people experience repeat rotator cuff injuries.

Anabolic steroids are known to build muscle mass and boost strength, so Karas and his colleagues set out to see whether steroids might improve rotator cuff healing. The research involved bioengineered tendons developed by co-author Dr. Albert J. Banes. The researchers collected tendon samples from six people who were having rotator cuff surgery. Cells from these tendons were isolated and used to grow the bioengineered tendons.

Some of these tendons were treated with the anabolic steroid nandrolone decanoate, while others were not. Some tendons were also subjected to load testing, in which the tendons were stretched. Tendons that had been treated with steroids and subjected to loading were stronger, denser and more elastic than other tendons, the researchers report in the American Journal of Sports Medicine. The steroid-treated tendons also had a more natural appearance than other tendons.

The research will not have an immediate impact on the treatment of rotator cuff injuries, but the research establishes a way to test the effect of mechanical stress and medications on tendon cells, Karas said. “Any drug can be tested, but we chose an anabolic agent because of its successful background in treating patients with burns and other injuries,” Karas said.

Another potential implication of the research, according to Karas, is that it “may permit us to manufacture a matrix of tissue that can be used to replace deficient human tissues.” Karas noted, “We are only in the embryonic phases of this work. We are a long way off, but the potential is exciting.”

Chris Benoit’s Xanax/Pain killer/Coke/Meth and so on use – not just steroids!

Posted By

So someone please explain to me exactly why there is no discussion about Chris Benoit’s Xanax/Pain killer/Coke/Meth and so on use.  I’m readin other stories where it’s clearly said that yes, he did abuse steroids, but what else did he abuse? coke/meth/pain killers/anti-depressants and so on.

Let me explain something to the common reader, “roid rage” doesn’t make you kill people.  You might yell at someone but what Chris Benoit did was PREmeditated NOT rage.  He killed his wife on fri, killed his son on saturday, and killed himself sunday, MEANING he planned this out…so how exactly is this a “rage” ? it’s something he clearly planned and went thru with.  It’s NOT uncommon to see people losing their tempers especially when they load up on coke/drugs/painkillers and so on.  Don’t blame some testosterone for his crazy behavior.  If that was true then we’d have a 1,000,000 of these per year (estimated steroid users in the USA).  Realistic? no!

Anabolic steroids do NOT kill people, people kill people.  It’s not steroids , it’s the other drugs he was taking – very obvious.  And why blame the drugs at all? why not consider that’s he’s a nut job!

****this is the story
Investigators: Benoit bought steroids `excessively’

The pro wrestler who strangled his wife and son and committed suicide last month bought injectable steroids excessively, according to court papers released yesterday. His doctor was charged with improperly prescribing drugs to other patients.

Dr. Phil Astin prescribed a 10-month supply of anabolic steroids to Chris Benoit every three to four weeks between May 2006 and May 2007, a Drug Enforcement Administration agent said in an affidavit made public yesterday.

During a probe of “RX Weight Loss,” Benoit was identified as an excessive buyer of injectable steroids, the document states. Prosecutors would not say what “RX Weight Loss” is.

The affidavit also said Astin supplied various controlled substances, including injectable anabolic steroids, that were found in Benoit’s home.

Astin has not been charged with supplying steroids to Benoit, though U.S. Attorney David E. Nahmias said more charges are possible.

The anabolic steroids found in Benoit’s home led officials to wonder whether the drugs played a role in the killings that started the weekend of June 22. Some experts believe steroids can cause paranoia, depression and violent outbursts known as “roid rage.” Toxicology tests on Benoit’s body have not been completed.

A federal indictment issued yesterday charges Astin with improperly dispensing painkillers and other drugs to two different patients. Astin pleaded not guilty and was being held in lieu of $125,000 bond.
