Biomechanical Analysis of Subjects after Surgical Repair of the Achilles Tendon

  title={Biomechanical Analysis of Subjects after Surgical Repair of the Achilles Tendon},
  author={Marisa Silva},
The study of human movement has been subject of a great interest by the medical and scientific community. It was through this interest that new methods of study/analysis in these two areas arose. Dynamic multibody systems are an example of these methods and have enabled the development of more personalized orthoses and prostheses and pre-study of the impacts of some surgeries (e.g. orthopedic surgery). This work was developed in order to study the gait patterns of subjects after surgical repair… Expand


Percutaneous repair of Achilles tendon ruptures with Tenolig: quantitative analysis of postural control and gait pattern.
Reduction of the triceps elongation and restoration of strength during the propulsion phase should be the key points in postoperative physiotherapy. Expand
[Evaluation of the surgical results of Achilles tendon ruptures by gait analysis and isokinetic muscle strength measurements].
Early surgical treatment of Achilles tendon ruptures followed by a shorter immobilization period is associated with satisfactory results, and in the long-term, with a higher rate of patient satisfaction. Expand
The utility of gait analysis in the rehabilitation of patients after surgical treatment of Achilles tendon rupture
Gait analysis is suited to both the detection of functional deficits following reconstructive surgery on the musculoskeletal system and to devising individual, patient-oriented rehabilitation plans. Expand
Gait abnormalities following rupture of the tendo Achillis: a pedobarographic assessment.
The forefoot pressure deficit in the group with tendon ruptures was smaller when assessed six months after the injury but was still significant, and pedobarographic assessment confirms that there are marked abnormalities within the gait cycle. Expand

Surgical treatment of Achilles tendon rupture is associated with a significantly lower incidence of re-rupture and therefore is the treatment method of choice and should be considered in preference to plaster cast immobilisation where appropriate. Expand
Surgery of the Foot and Ankle
Reading surgery of the foot and ankle is also a way as one of the collective books that gives many advantages. Expand
