Abstract

A prospective study was carried out in a general hospital, comparing the results in the management of inveterate Achilles tendon ruptures over a period of five years using a new minimally invasive technique.
A total of 74 tendons were repaired, of which 29 underwent minimally invasive surgery, with resection of the fibrous scar previously marked with ultrasound and suture of the tendon gap using the Amlang and Zwip technique. The results obtained were better than those obtained with open techniques in inveterate tears and similar to minimally invasive techniques in acute injuries in terms of postoperative complications, clinical measures, functionality and return to work.
The objective of this technique is to lead to an intrinsic repair of the tendon, resecting the fibrous scar of the defect and performing an end-to-end anastomosis under the concept of exacerbation of the inveterate injury. As advantages, this technique does not sacrifice other tendons, it is simple and inexpensive, and therefore, it can be used in any center.
