Objective: To introduce a modified technique for treating acute closed Achilles tendon rupture and evaluate the preliminary effectiveness. Methods: Between March 2011 and September 2015, 8 cases (8 sides) with acute closed Achilles tendon rupture were repaired with the laminated bevel suturing technique. All of the patients were male with an average age of 39.3 years (range, 22-58 years), injured in nonprofessional sports. The diagnosis was confirmed by typical signs of positive heel-lift test and Thompson test; the complete rupture of Achilles tendon was determined by color Doppler ultrasound or MRI, and the distance between the stump and calcaneus was 2-5 cm (mean, 3...

PURPOSE: Health state utility values are derived from preference-based measurements and are useful in calculating quality-adjusted life years (QALYs), which is a metric commonly used in cost-effectiveness studies. The purpose of this study was to convert the Achilles Tendon Rupture Score (ATRS) to the preference-based European Quality of Life-5 Dimension Questionnaire (EQ-5D) by estimating the relationship between the two scores using mapping. METHODS: Data were collected from a randomised controlled trial, where 100 patients were treated either surgically or non-surgically for Achilles tendon rupture...

BACKGROUND: Although early functional rehabilitation (EFR) has been suggested to yield rapid functional recovery after Achilles tendon rupture (ATR) compared to conventional rehabilitation (CR), most quantitative assessments occur long after rehabilitation has been completed. Few data exist regarding the short-term functional gains during the healing period post-ATR. It remains unclear if EFR allows for an objectively faster return to function. The aim of this study was to examine EFR's effect on gait, plantarflexor strength, and tendon properties in early post-operative follow-ups...

Blood flow restriction (BFR) training is a technique shown to be safe and effective at increasing muscular strength and endurance in healthy fitness populations and is under study for its use in postinjury rehabilitation. BFR stimulates muscular strength and hypertrophy gains at much lower loads than traditional methods, allowing patients to begin the rehabilitation process much sooner. We report on 2 patients who incorporated BFR training into their traditional rehabilitation program after Achilles tendon ruptures...

Proximal hamstring injuries cause buttock pain and may result in significant weakness and sciatic neuralgia. Avulsion ruptures involving 2 or more tendons with >2-cm retraction may benefit from early open surgical repair. More chronic equivalents may benefit from Achilles allograft reconstruction. Chronic proximal hamstring syndrome causing posterior thigh and sit pain may occur from less severe, often repetitive injury to the proximal hamstring origin with secondary sciatic neuralgia from local adhesions or scar entrapment...

Due to the increasing age of our society and a rise in engagement of young people in extreme and/or competitive sports, both tendinopathies and tendon ruptures present a clinical and financial challenge. Tendon has limited natural healing capacity and often responds poorly to treatments, hence it requires prolonged rehabilitation in most cases. Till today, none of the therapeutic options has provided successful long-term solutions, meaning that repaired tendons do not recover their complete strength and functionality...

Background  Muscles and tendons are subjected to a high level of stress in everyday life and sports. This often leads to injuries and is associated with training failure and reduced performance as well as with high costs for treatment and rehabilitation. Fast and successful treatment is therefore very important, both from an athletic and economic point of view. This study aims to demonstrate the relevance of biomechanical procedures for the objective monitoring of rehabilitation. At the same time, the results are to be used to establish progress and evaluation criteria for an efficient and controlled rehabilitation...

Achilles tendinopathy can be a chronic disabling condition affecting both athletic and sedentary patients. Multiple new treatment approaches have developed, including shock wave therapy and various types of injection. One of the novel treatment methods used is the injection of Aethoxysklerol or polidocanol, a sclerosing substance injected under ultrasound guidance targeting areas of neovascularisation. We report the case of a 78-year-old lady who suffered a complete Achilles tendon rupture following injection of Aethoxysklerol...

INTRODUCTION: Numerous publications are dealing with acute Achilles tendon rupture. To our knowledge, no systematic trial has been published analyzing the incidence, risk factors and the potential clinical impact of postoperative tendon calcifications (PTC) after percutaneous Achilles tendon repair. Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyze these relevant aspects. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between March 2003 and November 2010, a total of 126 patients with an acute, complete Achilles tendon rupture were treated with a percutaneous technique according to Ma and Griffith at a single university-based trauma department...

BACKGROUND: The Achilles tendon, the largest and strongest tendon in the human body, is nevertheless one of the tendons which most commonly undergoes a complete subcutaneous tear. Achilles tendon ruptures are especially common in middle aged men who occasionally participate in sport. Even though Achilles tendon ruptures are frequent, up to 25% of acute injuries are misdiagnosed, and present as chronic injuries. METHODS: This is a review article about diagnosis and management of chronic Achilles tendon ruptures...

Solitary ankle fracture or Achilles Tendon (AT) rupture might not be an uncommon injury. However, concomitant ipsilateral ankle fracture with AT rupture is rare. The present report discusses this rare combination. A 30-year-old female had fallen while rock climbing and sustained a closed fracture of the medial malleolus with an ipsilateral complete AT rupture. Most of the reported cases had similar patterns, not only in terms of history, but also in terms of a similar fracture pattern. This rare combination of orthopedic injuries tends to occur when an abrupt excessive force is applied to the forefoot, with subsequent ankle hyperextension or hindfoot inversion...

INTRODUCTION: Achilles tendon rupture affects over 11 000 people yearly in the UK, and the incidence is increasing. Controversy remains with regard to the best rehabilitation strategy for these patients. In operatively treated patients, functional bracing provides better outcomes compared with plaster casts. However, the role of functional bracing in non-operatively managed patients is unclear. This is the protocol for a multicentre randomised trial of plaster cast immobilisation versus functional bracing for patients with a non-operatively managed Achilles tendon rupture...
