Overview

The AchilloCordPLUS is intended for acute Achilles tendon ruptures during sport, where an extended period of postoperative immobilization is undesirable. It is also suitable for the elderly or patients with a history of prolonged steroid treatment, where wound healing is often a problem after ankle surgery.

How it Works

1 Proximal fixation is provided by threading the AchilloCordPLUS in a figure of eight through the proximal tendon stump

2 The AchilloCordPLUS is tied with a knot at the site of the rupture. The ends of the tendon are sutured together over the knot, so that the knot remains buried in the tissue

3 Distal fixation is provided by threading the AchilloCordPLUS through a small (3.2 mm diameter) bone tunnel in the os calcis, followed by a single pass in the distal tendon stump

4 The technique is performed through six stab incisions and a small posteromedial incision
