Outcome of Percutaneous Fixation of Acute Achilles Tendon Ruptures.

07:00 EST 1st March 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Outcome of Percutaneous Fixation of Acute Achilles Tendon Ruptures."

Conservative treatment of an acute Achilles rupture remains a viable and acceptable option as does surgical fixation, with open and percutaneous repair consisting the main operative techniques. The purpose of this study was to compare the outcomes and complication rates of open versus percutaneous surgical procedures.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tendon that connects the muscles in the back of the calf to the HEEL BONE.

Inflammation of the synovial lining of a tendon sheath. Causes include trauma, tendon stress, bacterial disease (gonorrhea, tuberculosis), rheumatic disease, and gout. Common sites are the hand, wrist, shoulder capsule, hip capsule, hamstring muscles, and Achilles tendon. The tendon sheaths become inflamed and painful, and accumulate fluid. Joint mobility is usually reduced.
