  • one stage treatment of deep infection following repair of Achilles Tendon Rupture with flexor hallucis longus transfer
    Knee Surgery Sports Traumatology Arthroscopy, 2009
    Co-Authors: Jeong Seok Moon

    Abstract:

    We present one-stage treatment of deep infection following repair of Achilles Tendon Rupture using flexor hallucis longus transfer. Flexor hallucis longus was used not only to connect the defect in Achillles Tendon, but also to control the soft tissue infection with its abundant blood supply, simultaneously. The clinical results for the two patients in this report were excellent without major complication.

  • sex differences in outcome after an acute Achilles Tendon Rupture
    Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine, 2014
    Co-Authors: Karin Grävare Silbernagel, Katarin Nilssonhelander, Nicklas Olsson, Annelie Brorsson, Bengt I Eriksson, Jon Karlsson

    Abstract:

    Background:Tendon healing differs between the sexes. Comparisons in outcome between the sexes after an Achilles Tendon Rupture are often not possible because of the small cohort (<20%) of women.Pur...

  • major functional deficits persist 2 years after acute Achilles Tendon Rupture
    Knee Surgery Sports Traumatology Arthroscopy, 2011
    Co-Authors: Nicklas Olsson, Jon Karlsson, Katarin Nilssonhelander, Bengt I Eriksson, Roland Thomee, Eva Faxen, Karin Grävare Silbernagel

    Abstract:

    Purpose
    The purpose of this prospective randomized controlled study was to evaluate the long-term results after an acute Achilles Tendon Rupture in patients treated surgically or non-surgically. The focus was to evaluate whether any improvements occurred between the one and 2-year evaluation.

  • acute Achilles Tendon Rupture a randomized controlled study comparing surgical and nonsurgical treatments using validated outcome measures
    American Journal of Sports Medicine, 2010
    Co-Authors: Katarin Nilssonhelander, Karin Grävare Silbernagel, Nicklas Olsson, Bengt I Eriksson, Roland Thomee, Eva Faxen, Jon Karlsson

    Abstract:

    BackgroundThere is no consensus regarding the optimal treatment for patients with acute Achilles Tendon Rupture. Few randomized controlled studies have compared outcomes after surgical or nonsurgical treatment with both groups receiving early mobilization.PurposeThis study was undertaken to compare outcomes of patients with acute Achilles Tendon Rupture treated with or without surgery using early mobilization and identical rehabilitation protocols.Study DesignRandomized, controlled trial; Level of evidence, 1.MethodsNinety-seven patients (79 men, 18 women; mean age, 41 years) with acute Achilles Tendon Rupture were treated and followed for 1 year. The primary end point was rerupturing. Patients were evaluated using the Achilles Tendon Total Rupture Score (ATRS), functional tests, and clinical examination at 6 and 12 months after injury.ResultsThere were 6 (12%) reRuptures in the nonsurgical group and 2 (4%) in the surgical group (P = .377). The mean 6- and 12-month ATRS were 72 and 88 points in the surgic…

  • minimally invasive versus open repair for acute Achilles Tendon Rupture meta analysis showing reduced complications with similar outcomes after minimally invasive surgery
    Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery American Volume, 2018
    Co-Authors: Alberto Grassi, Annunziato Amendola, Kristian Samuelsson, Eleonor Svantesson, Matteo Romagnoli, Alice Bondi, Massimiliano Mosca, Stefano Zaffagnini

    Abstract:

    Background:There is no consensus on the optimal technique for repairing an acute Achilles Tendon Rupture. The purpose of this meta-analysis was to compare the complications, subjective outcomes, and functional results between minimally invasive surgery and open repair of an Achilles Tendon Rupture.M
