Title:
A large single-centre series assessing the Achillon® suture system for repair of acute midsubstance achilles tendon ruptures
Authors:
Clarke, L.; Czipri, Matyas; Talbot, Nick J.; Sharpe, Ian T.; Hughes, Adrian M
Abstract:
Active patients may benefit from surgical repair of the achilles tendon with the aim of preserving functional length and optimising push-off power. A mini-open device assisted technique has the potential to reduce wound complications, but risks nerve injury. We present the largest published series of midsubstance achilles tendon repairs using the Achillon® device.
