Abstract: Acute Achilles tendon rupture is common and has increasing incidence. This is thought to be due to increasing activity and sports participation in middle age. Sustaining an Achilles tendon rupture means a long rehabilitation period and many patients do not achieve full recovery of strength and function. One of the reasons for this reduced function is considered to be due to tendon elongation. The reasons for the lack of recovery has been discussed in earlier studies comparing operative and non-... more
