Management of Complications of Achilles Tendon Surgery.
There are multiple techniques to treat tendon defects in the event end-to-end repair cannot be achieved after débridement. In general, the choice of treatment technique is based on size of the resultant gap. Although each treatment technique has literature to support its use, there are no data to support the use of one technique over another. Treatment should be based on the experience and discretion of the treating surgeon. This article proposes an algorithm for wound breakdown, infection, and rerupture after Achilles tendon surgery. This algorithm should be used as a guide.
