[Optimization of the therapeutic procedure in subcutaneous injuries to the Achilles tendon].

Abstract

Curative tactics in operative treatment of not fresh and longstanding injuries of the Achilles tendon with biocompatible artificial materials are discussed. Expediency of performing surgical interventions under conditions of conductive anesthesia is noted when using a Z-shaped access. An original operative technique is described. In 16 patients with subcutaneous ruptures of the Achilles tendon who were treated by the proposed curative method the supporting ability of the foot was recovered within 2-3 months after operation.
