Dear BIOMCH-L colleagues,

Recently the following clinical problem was presented to me:

Patient: female, 27 years old.
Problem: multiple (8 until now) ruptures of EPB (7 repairs until
now) without significant stressing of the tendon (first rupture
after fall from bike).
Examination: hypermobile joints.

I would greatly appreciate any clues regarding possible causes of
these recurring tendon ruptures.
