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.

Acute Achilles tendon ruptures are injuries with multiple treatment strategies with possibly far reaching consequences. Open repair is associated with a high complication rate, whereas percutaneous te...
Treatment strategies for Achilles tendon rupture vary considerably, and clinical outcome may depend on the magnitude of tendon elongation after surgical repair. The aim of this project was to examine ...

The purpose of this study is to measure the mechanical properties of the tendon after conservative treated Achilles tendon ruptures with or without early controlled loading. This is done i...
The purpose of this study is to directly compare traditional plaster treatment with early weightbearing in a walking boot for the non operative treatment of acute achilles tendon rupture.
This study is intended to determine whether the optimal treatment of acute Achilles tendon ruptures is surgical repair or functional bracing. Our hypotheses are surgical repair will: 1) R...

The objective of this study is to determine if Achilles tendon elongation and gait pattern differ between patients treated using an individualized treatment algorithm and patients treated ...
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.
