Abstract

A case study is presented after a patient was severely injured as he exited his car and the train struck his car at that moment. Twenty-five years after the injury the patient presents for consultation to reconstruct his Achilles tendon. The reconstruction was done in 1992 and the result was the patient was able to walk, run and play baseball for the first time in 25 years since his injury. In this case the superior halves of the peroneal tendons were used as autografts and re-enforced with synthetic mesh.
