Achilles tendon is a strong tissue that connects the muscle of the calf with the back of the heel bone. Achilles tendon is essential for walking, jumping, running and extending the leg.
The surgery is performed when Achilles tendon is torn into two pieces. Such tendon tear is common in sports which require constant running, jumping and sudden stops and turns, for instance in basketball, tennis, football or jogging.
Ruptured tendon may be treated without surgery but it was observed that with non-surgical treatment the full muscle and tendon strength cannot be fully restored because Achilles tendon rips in irregular way and the calf muscle pulls the tendon towards itself whereas the end of the torn tendon is drawn back into the leg.
That is to say, tendon stretches out and cannot function well because the strength of the muscle depends on the right tension between the tendon and the muscle. If the tendon gets fully retracted then achilles tendon repair surgery becomes the only efficient solution.
There are two types of surgeries to treat achilles tendon rupture. The first method is open surgery during which a large incision is made in the back of the leg. The second technique is arthroscopic.
Recently open surgery is getting more and more criticism as the risk of the skin infection is rather high compared to the new, arthroscopic method which requires a few minimal incisions instead of one large. Through the incisions surgeon inserts medical instruments and arthroscope which a tiny viewing tool and stitches Achilles tendon together. Such surgery is believed to be more accurate and easier as the possibility of complications is significantly lower.
During the first week patient should not to place any weight on the leg thus no walking is allowed. However, later on walking in removable boots is encouraged instead of wearing a leg cast which weakens the muscle. Physical therapy is extremely important for the full recovery thus patient has to follow rehabilitation programme carefully. Read more about rehabilitation after tendon repair in Lithuania
