Abstract: Acute Achilles tendon rupture is a common injury, which leads to significant morbidity in patients. Many patients never recover their full function even after long rehabilitation, whereas others make a good recovery. The factors behind this are unknown. The optimal treatment strategy, whether or not to treat surgically, is still controversial. This thesis consists of six studies with the overall aim of finding predictors of outcome, examining the long-term follow-up of re-ruptures and comparing ... more
