What is achilles tendon repair?

The Achilles tendon is the strongest and thickest tendon in the body that connects the muscles in the back of the calf to the heel bone. It’s the largest tendon in body and helps people to walk, run, and jump. Tendon rupture is a condition which affects the back of the lower leg. It is due to sudden, strong force. It mainly occurs when patient suddenly moves faster or pivots on foot. It can affect walking ability. It is more common in men and usually occurs at the age between 30-40 years.A ruptured Achilles tendon can cause pain and swelling near heel. Patients may not be able to bend their foot downward.Even in mild cases, it can take weeks to months of rest for the tendon to repair itself. Orthopedics can take care of this rupture with a simple procedure called Achilles tendon repair surgery.

• Patients with ruptured Achilles tendon

The surgeon takes a medical history and asks for ultrasound, X-rays, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Smoking should be stopped few weeks before and after the surgery. Smoking will slow down the healing process. Patients should stop taking Aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines and herbal supplements before the surgery, since these medicines increase the risk of bleeding. They should not eat or drink after midnight the night before the surgery.
