PMID:  6759399     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A subcutaneous suture technique for repair of closed rupture of the Achilles tendon first reported in 1977 is described again. The use of the technique in Aberdeen is compared with cases treated in plaster during the same 2-year-period. Although the total in the series is only 35, the results appear to indicate that the subcutaneous suture technique improves the power of plantar flexion without significant post-operative complications.
