Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An abundance of literature has been published regarding rupture of the tendo Achillis. Certain studies review various options for management, while others focus on the mechanisms and pathogenesis of injury. There are, however, significant differences in the outcomes of these studies. This article reviews the basic anatomy of the tendo Achillis, as well as the various parameters relating to the spontaneous rupture of this tendon. A case study of a recurrent tendo Achillis rupture is also presented, to illustrate principles of management of recurrent ruptures.
