PMID:  3370404     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The preliminary results of a new treatment of ruptured Achilles tendons are presented. The new treatment consists of a new tendon suture and a new post-operative cast in which it is possible to make non-weight bearing movements of the ankle immediately after the operation. This makes it possible to walk the day after the operation, causes very little discomfort during the time in a cast, gives a quick return to normal mobility with normal plantar flexion strength and makes it possible to resume sport at the same level as before the injury.
