INTRODUCTION The distal triceps tendon rupture is an uncommon injury. The acute treatment is well-defined, but when a delayed diagnosis is made or when a tendon retraction is present the alternatives or reconstruction are limited and sometimes complex. CASE PRESENTATION In this case, we report on a 28-year-old man who presented with a chronic disruption of the distal triceps tendon with a gap of approximately 15 cm. The patient was diagnosed in another center with an inveterate breakage of… CONTINUE READING

The patient was diagnosed in another center with an inveterate breakage of the distal triceps tendon and was initially treated with an Achilles allograft that was complicated by a wound infection and required more than ten surgeries .
The use of an Achilles tendon allograft provides excellent results in complex distal triceps tendon ruptures .
Nearly 22 months after the initial trauma , and 12 months after the first surgery , we performed a reconstruction with an Achilles tendon allograft using the new technique of distal attachment .
