Abstract Share this page

Abstract Current surgical treatments for Achilles tendon rupture are thoroughly discussed. New repair techniques, such as the use of soft-tissue anchors, are reviewed, as is the use of synthetic mesh to augment the surgical repair. A classification system devised by the author is presented to make it easier to select the appropriate surgical procedure or combination of procedures in delayed rupture repair. Postoperative physical therapy is paramount in the return to preinjury level of activity for these patients.
