Abstract

All rights reserved. Surgical treatment remains the standard of care for active patients with acute midsubstance Achilles tendon ruptures. Minimal invasive surgery, rupture's site hematoma preservation, strong fixation, avoidance of sural nerve entrapment, and early rehabilitation are essential concepts desirable for any Achilles tendon repair. Hereby, we present a technique modification that incorporates all these advantages in one single procedure.
