Original Source: Short- and long-term outcomes of primary Achilles tendon repair in cats: 21 Cases.

Objectives: To evaluate the short- and long-term outcomes of surgically repaired Achilles tendons in cats. Methods: Twenty-one cats that underwent surgical repair of Achilles tendon injuries were retrospectively examined. Signalment, type of injury, time from injury to surgery, the surgical repair, complications, and long-term outcomes were recorded. Statistical comparisons were made between traumatic and atraumatic injuries using Student's paired t-tests. Results: Both traumatic and atraumatic causes of di...
