Achilles Tendon Repair
Step by step
Achilles tendon exposure
Mark the skin with a linear incision of 4 to 10 cm, just medial to the Achilles tendon.
Palpating the rupture gap
The Achilles tendon may be palpated to detect the level of the rupture, though edema or a hematoma may mask this defect. This way the incision site may be more accurately determined.
