I read on https://www.physiocomestoyou.co.uk/blog/all-you-need-to-know-about-tendons/ (mirror):

[Tendons] do not have a large blood supply.

Does any tendon in the human body receive a high amount of blood supply? E.g., one could define high as significantly higher than the median observed blood supplies across tendons. Or is the property of not receiving a large blood supply a constant across tendons in the human body?

    $\begingroup$ The text says 'tendons', it says not 'tendon type', hence the author compares bodily structures. What is your question, really? If there is variability in the blood supply of different types of tendons? $\endgroup$ – AliceD Sep 12 at 7:04
  • $\begingroup$ @AliceD Yes, the question is whether there is some variability in the blood supply of different types of tendons. $\endgroup$ – Franck Dernoncourt Sep 12 at 7:21

    $\begingroup$ Have you done any prior research into this? What would you consider to be a relevant difference? Have you found pointers so far? Where did you look? $\endgroup$ – AliceD Sep 12 at 7:37
  • $\begingroup$ @AliceD I don't have any significance threshold and haven't found anything so far. $\endgroup$ – Franck Dernoncourt Sep 12 at 7:39
