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 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.
Among Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) the rupture of the Achilles tendon is the most common. Up today, the mechanical and elastic properties of the Achilles tendon are still unknown, and t...
Acute rupture of the Achilles tendon is a very frequent sports injury. Surgical repair is the usual treatment in young subjects, and although the optimal technique is still a matter of deb...
The objective of this study is to examine how elongation of the Achilles tendon develops during the first year after rupture among patients treated both operatively and non-operatively, an...
Although nonsurgical methods and many surgical techniques have been developed for repairing a ruptured Achilles tendon, there is no consensus on its best treatment. In this article, a novel minimally ...
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 pu...
We conducted a retrospective comparison of surgical treatment outcomes for acute Achilles tendon ruptures in nonobese and obese patients.
Healing in continuity with lengthening of the Achilles tendon is a disabling complication after Achilles tendon rupture. This results in weakness of ankle plantarflexion and a non-propulsive gait on t...
Following Achilles tendon rupture, tendon elongation leads to long term deficits in calf function. A surrogate measure of Achilles tendon length, Achilles tendon resting angle (ATRA), has been describ...
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.
A method of hemostasis utilizing various agents such as Gelfoam, silastic, metal, glass, or plastic pellets, autologous clot, fat, and muscle as emboli. It has been used in the treatment of spinal cord and INTRACRANIAL ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATIONS, renal arteriovenous fistulas, gastrointestinal bleeding, epistaxis, hypersplenism, certain highly vascular tumors, traumatic rupture of blood vessels, and control of operative hemorrhage.
A condition characterized by a broad range of progressive disorders ranging from TENOSYNOVITIS to tendon rupture with or without hindfoot collapse to a fixed, rigid, FLATFOOT deformity. Pathologic changes can involve associated tendons, ligaments, joint structures of the ANKLE, hindfoot, and midfoot. Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is the most common cause of acquired flatfoot deformity in adults.
A specialty in which manual or operative procedures are used in the treatment of disease, injuries, or deformities.
