Metabolism and inflammatory mediators in the peritendinous space measured by microdialysis during intermittent isometric exercise in humans. (1/488)

1. The metabolic processes that occur around the tendon during mechanical loading and exercise are undescribed in man. These processes are important for understanding the development of overuse inflammation and injury. 2. A microdialysis technique was used to determine interstitial concentrations of glycerol, glucose, lactate, prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and thromboxane B2 (TXB2) as well as to calculate tissue substrate balance in the peritendinous region of the human Achilles tendon. Recovery of 48-62 % (range) at rest and 70-77 % during exercise were obtained for glycerol, glucose and PGE2. 3. Six young healthy humans were studied at rest, during 30 min of intermittent static plantar flexion of the ankle at a workload corresponding to individual body weight, and during 60 min of recovery. Microdialysis was performed in both legs with simultaneous determination of blood flow by 133Xe washout in the same area, and blood sampling from the radial artery. 4. With exercise, the net release of lactate as well as of glycerol from the peritendinous space of the Achilles tendon increased 2-fold (P < 0.05). Furthermore a 100 % increase in interstitial concentration of PGE2 and TXB2 was found, but it was only significant for TXB2(P < 0.05). As peritendinous blood flow increased 2- to 3-fold during intermittent static contractions, this indicates also that the output of these substances from the tissue increased during exercise. 5. This study indicates that both lipid and carbohydrate metabolism as well as inflammatory activity is accelerated in the peritendinous region of the human Achilles tendon with dynamic loading.  (+info)

Sonographic incidence of tendon microtears in athletes with chronic Achilles tendinosis. (2/488)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the number and distribution of tendon microtears in asymptomatic controls and athletes with chronic Achilles tendinitis or partial thickness tears using high resolution ultrasound. METHODS: The mean number of microtears in three random tendon cross sections were recorded per tendon third in 19 asymptomatic volunteers, 16 athletes with symptomatic chronic Achilles tendinitis, and eight athletes with partial Achilles tendon rupture. RESULTS: Microtears were most numerous in the middle third section of the Achilles tendon. Some 67% of tendons in the control group had no microtears, and 28% showed a single microtear. Only 18% of the athletes with chronic Achilles tendinitis and none of the athletes with partial tendon rupture were without microtears in the middle third of their Achilles tendon. Of the tendons with chronic tendinitis, 13% had more than three microtears per section which increased to 87% in tendons exhibiting partial rupture. CONCLUSIONS: There appears to be an association between microtear formation and Achilles tendon rupture.  (+info)

Safe relief of rest pain that eases with activity in achillodynia by intrabursal or peritendinous steroid injection: the rupture rate was not increased by these steroid injections. (3/488)

A history of morning and rest pain that eases with activity was found to improve after anti-inflammatory injections around the paratenon or within the Achilles bursae. The reduction in pain morbidity was significant, and the peritendinous steroid injections did not increase the rupture rate.  (+info)

Negative interstitial pressure in the peritendinous region during exercise. (4/488)

In the present study, tissue pressure in the peritendinous area ventral to the human Achilles tendon was determined. The pressure was measured during rest and intermittent isometric calf muscle exercise at three torques (56, 112, and 168 Nm) 20, 40 and 50 mm proximal to the insertion of the tendon in 11 healthy, young individuals. In all experiments a linear significant decrease in pressure was obtained with increasing torque [e.g., at 40 mm: -0.4 +/- 0.3 mmHg (rest) to -135 +/- 12 mmHg (168 Nm)]. No significant differences were obtained among the three areas measured. On the basis of these observations, microdialysis was performed in the peritendinous region with a colloid osmotic active substance (Dextran 70, 0.1 g/ml) added to the perfusate with the aim of counteracting the negative tissue pressure. Dialysate volume was found to be fully restored (100 +/- 4%) during exercise. It is concluded that a marked negative tissue pressure is generated in the peritendinous space around the Achilles tendon during exercise in humans. Negative tissue pressure could lead to fluid shift and could be involved in the increase in blood flow previously noted in the peritendinous tissue during exercise (H. Langberg, J. Bulow, and M. Kjaer. Acta Physiol. Scand. 163: 149-153, 1998; H. Langberg, J. Bulow, and M. Kjaer. Clin. Physiol. 19: 89-93, 1999).  (+info)

Atraumatic bilateral Achilles tendon rupture: an association of systemic steroid treatment. (5/488)

A case of bilateral Achilles tendon rupture associated with steroid use is reported. This case illustrates the importance of taking a thorough drug history in cases of tendon rupture. In lower limb tendon rupture all patients, especially those on steroids, should be warned of the increased risk of contralateral injury.  (+info)

Achilles tendinitis associated with fluoroquinolones. (6/488)

AIMS: To determine whether there is an association between use of fluoroquinolones and tendinitis in a large population under everyday circumstances. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was carried out in a dynamic population. Data came from the IPCI-database which consists of all data on consultations, morbidity, prescriptions and other interventions, as registered by GPs in a source population of approximately 250 000 persons. For this study data were collected from 41 general practices in the period from January 1st, 1995 through December 31st, 1996. All persons treated with either fluoroquinolones, amoxicillin, trimethoprim, cotrimoxazole or nitrofurantoin were followed from the first day of treatment until the outcome of interest, death, transfer to another practice, or end of the study period, whichever came first. The risk window was defined as the legend duration +1 month. Potential cases were defined as a registration of a tendinitis or tendon rupture. Patients with a history of tendinitis or tendon rupture, preceding trauma or inadequate diagnoses were excluded on the basis of a review of the patient profiles and additional clinical data, blinded as to the exposure status. Results were adjusted for age, gender, concurrent corticosteroid exposure and number of GP visits. RESULTS: There were 1841 users of fluoroquinolones and 9406 users of the other antibacterial drugs with an average duration of 9 and 7 days, respectively. Tendinitis or tendon rupture was registered in 97 profiles, but after review only 22 complied with the case definition. The adjusted relative risk of tendinitis to fluoroquinolones was 3. 7 (95%CI: 0.9-15.1) for Achilles tendinitis and 1.3 (95%CI: 0.4-4.7) for other types of tendinitis. Achilles tendinitis to ofloxacin had a relative risk of 10.1 (95%CI: 2.2-46.0) and an excess risk of 15 cases per 100 000 exposure days. CONCLUSIONS: Although the numbers in our study are small, our results suggest that some fluoroquinolones may increase the risk of Achilles tendinitis, and that this risk increase is highest for ofloxacin.  (+info)

Percutaneous repair of the ruptured tendo Achillis. (7/488)

Percutaneous repair of the ruptured tendo Achillis has a low rate of failure and negligible complications with the wound, but the sural nerve may be damaged. We describe a new technique which minimises the risk of injury to this nerve. The repair is carried out using three midline stab incisions over the posterior aspect of the tendon. A No. 1 nylon suture on a 90 mm cutting needle approximates the tendon with two box stitches. The procedure can be carried out under local anaesthesia. We reviewed 27 patients who had a percutaneous repair at a median interval of 35 months after the injury. They returned to work at four weeks and to sport at 16. One developed a minor wound infection and another complex regional pain syndrome type II. There were no injuries to the sural nerve or late reruptures. This technique is simple to undertake and has a low rate of complications.  (+info)

Teasing out the truth about collagen. (8/488)

Of all of the non-mineral constituents of the mammalian body there is more collagen than anything else except water and possibly fat. Nevertheless our understanding of the physiology of collagen is rudimentary. All cells and tissues are supported by a network of collagen fibres, the arrangement of which appears to be specifically site adaptive. We know a lot about the biochemistry of collagen, and its many subtypes: for example, all collagen molecules are made within fibroblasts (or modifications of them such as osteocytes), then the oversized collagen molecule is secreted in a soluble form, with hydrophilic ends which are enzymatically cleaved to leave the insoluble core collagen (tropocollagen) beached in the extracellular space. We know that collagen is made relatively immortal by being cross-linked and rather impervious to proteolysis. However, we do not know much about what governs collagen synthesis or its breakdown in the human body. It is important to know, not simply because like Everest, collagen presents a large unignorable mass. We need to understand collagen metabolism in order to understand how we grow, adapt to the environment, maintain our adult shapes and then wrinkle and crumble as we age. Collagen diseases are relatively common and almost certainly if we knew more about how, for example, the collagen framework of bone is laid down and turned over we would understand much more about osteopenia of old age. The problem in finding out has been that collagen is so difficult to study. It turns over relatively slowly, and that part of it that is cross-linked and forms mature collagen is, it seems, with us for life come hell, high-water or famine. The body reduces to mainly skin and bone-collagen in extremis. Because the system as a whole is so sluggish, it is difficult to see changes in indices of collagen metabolism. However, not all the body collagen seems to be as fixed, and indeed collagen in some tissues must turn over, enabling remodelling and adaptation, rather quickly. Think about the stiffness and discomfort that accompanies un-accustomed exercise, which not only abates with time but ceases to occur once the exercise has become customary. What is happening to collagen protein turnover in these circumstances? One obvious way to study protein turnover, even of collagen, is to follow the incorporation of stable isotope markers such as proline into the tissue (although the breakdown is harder to quantify), but this is technically difficult and requires biopsy of the tissue in question. Another way is to follow the appearance in biological fluids of markers of collagen turnover. Since the propeptides which make collagen soluble are cleaved as collagen is deposited extracellularly, their concentration is an index of the rate of collagen synthesis; similarly when tropocollagen is degraded by extracellular proteases, specific N- and C-terminal fragments are released, the amount of which scales with the rate of collagen breakdown. These bits of collagen find their way into the blood. However, assaying them there introduces non-specificity and dilution, rendering interpretation difficult. The ideal would be to measure them in the extracellular fluid at the site of production. This of course is not easy in vivo. One of the delights of the paper by Langberg and colleagues in this issue of The Journal of Physiology (Langberg et al. 1999) is the sheer cheek with which the authors decided to use the microdialysis technique to do this. Microdialysis is a technique whereby a slowly perfused, thin-walled membranous tube is introduced into the extracellular space and the collected fluid assayed for molecules which have diffused into it. Until now the idea of using microdialysis to measure concentrations of molecules much bigger than 300 Da would be regarded as ludicrous. (ABSTRACT TRUNCATED)  (+info)

An Achilles tendon rupture, also known as an Achilles tendon tear, is the snapping or pulling apart of the Achilles tendon into two pieces. Achilles tendon ruptures can be full ruptures or partial ruptures. A physician may be required to distinguish between acute Achilles tendinosis and a partial Achilles tendon rupture. Tennis Leg is a rupture of the connection between the calf muscle and the Achilles tendon. Achilles tendonitis is an inflammation of the Achilles tendon: it is much less common than, but often confused with, Achilles tendinosis. Achilles tendons can also be lacerated or crushed. Causes The Achilles tendon can grow weak and thin with age and lack of use. Then it becomes prone to injury or rupture. Achilles tendon rupture is more common in those with preexisting tendinitis of the Achilles tendon. Certain illnesses (such as arthritis and diabetes) and medications (such as corticosteroids and some antibiotics, including quinolones such as levofloxacin [Levaquin] and ciprofloxacin ...
The most common Achilles tendon injuries are Achilles tendinosis (also known as Achilles tendinopathy or misspelled Achilles tendonopathy) and Achilles tendon rupture. Achilles tendinosis is a soreness and stiffness that comes on gradually and continues to worsen until treated. It often starts with stiffness and creaking when first getting out of bed in the morning. Lightly pinching the Achilles tendon with the forefinger and thumb will indicate soreness. Achilles tendinosis is a common injury among middle and long distance runners. Achilles tendon rupture is a partial or complete tear of the Achilles tendon. It comes on suddenly, sometimes with a popping sound, and is debilitating. Partial and full Achilles tendon ruptures are most likely to occur in sports requiring sudden eccentric stretching, such as sprinting and racquet sports ...
Treating Achilles Tendon Injuries Of all of the tendons in the human body, the Achilles tendon is the largest. The muscles at the posterior of the lower leg are attached to the calcaneous (heel bone) by the Achilles tendon. Because if its location, the Achilles tendon must withstand a great deal of pressure during strenuous exercise - especially sporting activities that involve a lot of pivoting.. Two types of injury are quite common for the Achilles tendon:. #1 Achilles tendonitis is inflammation caused by overuse.. Second is the tearing of the Achilles tendon.. What is Achilles Tendonitis?. Achilles tendonitis is caused by a sudden increase in the intensity of activity to which the Achilles tendon is subjected. So, for example, if you suddenly change the type of training you are doing or greatly increase the intensity of your existing training, you are likely to experience Achilles tendonitis. This is why you must take great care when adding very strenuous exercise to your routine or when ...
Patients who have an Achilles tendon injury typically feel pain in the calf. The Achilles tendon connects the heel to the calf muscles, and may become damaged or torn while participating in certain sporting activities. It enables the foot to point and flex, which is necessary in order to walk, run, and jump. The Achilles tendon may tear or become ruptured as a result of repetitive stress on the feet and ankles. It can happen gradually from consistent running, or happen suddenly from an increase in exercise intensity. Some of the symptoms that are typically associated with this condition can include swelling surrounding the heel, severe pain in the back of the leg, and difficulty walking. If you feel you have endured an Achilles tendon injury, it is advised that you are under the care of a podiatrist.. Achilles tendon injuries need immediate attention to avoid future complications. If you have any concerns, contact Dr. Jeffrey Wachtel of Wachtel Family Foot Care. Our doctor can provide the care ...
BACKGROUND: Partial Achilles tendon ruptures are not always easy to diagnose. A history including a sudden onset of pain, and/or relative weakness in plantar flexion force, are indicators. The most loaded side of the Achilles tendon is the dorsal side (skin side). OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the ultrasound (US) and Doppler (CD) findings in patients with a suspected partial rupture in the Achilles tendon. Material and METHODS: Seventeen patients (16 men and 1 woman) with a mean age of 36 years (range 23-71) were examined clinically and by US+CD because of midportion Achilles tendon pain. There was an acute onset in 14/17 patients, and all had painful weakness during tendon loading activity. RESULTS: In all patients the US examination showed a partial Achilles tendon rupture, presented as a disrupted dorsal (skin side) tendon line and an irregular tendon structure mainly located in the dorsal and mid-tendon. The size of the rupture varied from 1/3 to 2/3 of the tendon thickness. In the dorsal part of ...
The Achilles tendon is a strong bands of fibrous connective tissue that attaches the calf muscle to the heel bone. When the muscle contracts, the tendon transmits the power of this contraction to the heel bone, producing movement. The Achilles tendon ruptures because the load applied to it is greater than the tendons ability to withstand that load. This usually occurs as a result of a sudden, quick movement where there is a forceful stretch of the tendon or a contraction of the muscles eg: jumping, sprinting, or pushing off to serve in tennis. This occurs most often in sports that require a lot of stopping and starting (acceleration-deceleration sports) such as tennis, basketball, netball and squash. The Achilles tendon is on average 15cm in length. Most ruptures occur 2-6cm above where the tendon inserts into the heel bone. This is the narrowest portion of the Achilles tendon and is also the area with the poorest blood supply. achilles tendon rupture is most common when the muscles and tendon ...
Achilles tendon rupture is one of the most common tendon injuries in the adult population. The incidence of this injury is increasing as aging adults continue their participation in high-demand sports. Although the impact of an Achilles tendon rupture is substantial, often resulting in prolonged disability and rehabilitation. Studies have showed that the operation treatment of acute Achilles tendon ruptures had some advantages. But the rebuild of blood supply was not involved in previous studies. And the epitenon of tendon is the interior layer, closest to the endotenons which contains the vascular supply. Main difference of two suture methods were if the epitenon was repaired and sewed indirectly or unrepaired and sewed directly ...
Abstract: Using Tensiomyography we evaluated a patient that had Achilles tendon rupture surgery. The contralateral normal side measurements were also performed for evaluation and comparison of the site of injury.. The occurrence of Achilles tendon rupture happens in 2% of the population per year. In recent years there has been an increased interest in middle-aged and older patients in physical conditioning and joining in with athletic activities. There are two types of Achilles tendon ruptures. One is from direct trauma and another from indirect causes. Indirect causes are more frequent and result from a combination of mechanical stress and degeneration. Achilles tendon operation results are affected by several factors like age, muscle-tendon flexibility, strength, rupture site, etc. The factors that interest us most are muscle-tendon flexibility and strength of the calf muscle. TMG can evaluate the function of skeletal muscle through contraction time (Tc), maximal displacement (Dm), and other ...
Achilles tendon rupture and achilles tendon injury are treated by Mr. Rajeev Suneja in Manchester and Cheshire. He also performs achilles tendon surgery.
Achilles tendon ruptures commonly occur in athletic individuals in their 30s and 40s while performing activities that require sudden acceleration or changes in direction (ex. basketball, tennis, etc.). Patients usually describe a sharp pain in their heel region almost as if they were struck in the back of the leg. The diagnosis of an acute Achilles tendon rupture is made on clinical examination as x-rays will reveal the ankle bones to be normal. The Achilles is the largest and strongest tendon in the body. It is subject to 2-3 times body weight during normal walking so regaining normal Achilles tendon function is critical. Achilles tendon ruptures can be successfully treated non-operatively, or operatively, but they must be treated. Surgical treatment leads to a faster recovery and a lower rate of re-rupture. However, surgery can be associated with very serious complications such as an infection or wound healing problems. For this reason non-operative treatment may be preferable in many ...
All patients with badminton-related acute Achilles tendon ruptures registered during 1990 to 1994 at the University Hospital of Umeå were retrospectively followed up using a questionnaire. Thirty-one patients (mean age, 36.0 years), 27 men and 4 women, were included. Thirty patients (97%) described themselves as recreational players or beginners. The majority of the injuries (29 of 31, 94%) happened at the middle or end of the planned game. Previous local symptoms had been noticed by five patients (16%). Long-term results showed that patients treated with surgery had a significantly shorter sick leave absence than patients treated without surgery (50 versus 75 days). There was no obvious selection favoring any treatment modality. None of the surgically treated patients had reruptures, but two reruptures occurred in the nonsurgically treated group. There seemed to be fewer remaining symptoms and a higher sports activity level after the injury in the surgically treated group. Our results indicate ...

Todays question about the Broncos comes from Slater Raub in Louisville, Ohio.. Q: Did the players who trained together during the NFL lockout last year help themselves more than the players who trained on their own?. A: The Broncos were pleased with the condition of nearly all their players when the lockout ended last summer. The players arrived at training camp in good shape. During the lockout, many of them worked together with Loren Landow, the director of performance enhancement at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic.. Achilles tendon injuries caused the most concern in NFL training camps last year. Ten players in the league, including Broncos cornerback SydQuan Thompson, suffered an Achilles tendon injury before Week 1 of the regular season.. Researchers associated with Ohio State looked into the issue and concluded that "these numbers have already exceeded all previously reported Achilles tendon ruptures that normally occur over an entire NFL season." For a period covering 20 NFL seasons ...

Achilles tendinopathy is one of the most common overuse injuries in running, and forefoot pronation, seen in flatfeet participants, has been proposed to cause additional loading across the Achilles tendon. Foot orthoses are one of the common and effective conservative treatment prescribed for Achilles tendinopathy, it works by correcting the biomechanical malalignment and reducing tendon load. Previous studies have shown reduction of Achilles Tendon load (ATL) during running by using customized arch support orthosis (CASO) or an orthotic heel lift (HL). However, there are still little biomechanical evidence and comparative studies to guide orthotic prescriptions for Achilles tendinopathy management. Therefore, this study seeks to investigate the two currently employed orthotic treatment options for Achilles tendinopathy: CASO and HL for the reduction of ATL and Achilles tendon loading rate (ATLR) in recreational runners with flatfeet. Twelve participants were recruited and run along the runway in the
In diagnosing an Achilles tendon rupture, the foot and ankle surgeon will ask questions about how and when the injury occurred and whether the patient has previously injured the tendon or experienced similar symptoms. The surgeon will examine the foot and ankle, feeling for a defect in the tendon that suggests a tear. Range of motion and muscle strength will be evaluated and compared to the uninjured foot and ankle. If the Achilles tendon is ruptured, the patient will have less strength in pushing down (as on a gas pedal) and will have difficulty rising on the toes.. The diagnosis of an Achilles tendon rupture is typically straightforward and can be made through this type of examination. In some cases, however, the surgeon may order an MRI or other advanced imaging tests.. Treatment ...
By Rachael Street, Physiotherapist. Achilles tendon pain is a common complaint I see at the clinic. People often describe "always having had tight calves" and since starting a new activity or type of exercise, have then developed pain in one or both Achilles tendons.. Yes, if the calf muscles are tight, this puts extra load through the Achilles tendon and therefore can cause an irritation of the tendon as it attaches into the heel. But why is the calf so tight?. I like to look at things from both the bottom-up and the top-down. Firstly, if the foot and ankle does not have good biomechanical alignment (eg. feet roll inwards), extra load will be placed upon the calf causing it to get tight and therefore impact the Achilles tendon. Adjustments to footwear or the addition of orthotics may be useful here.. Secondly, if the glutes and core are not working well, in order to control the tracking of the knee with activity, the calf will again overload and cause the Achilles tendon to become ...
Solving Foot Concerns. Overview An Achilles tendon rupture, or tear, is a common condition. This typically occurs in the unconditioned individual who sustains the rupture while playing sports, or perhaps, from tripping. There is a vigorous contraction of the muscle and the tendon tears. Causes The Achilles tendon is most commonly injured by sudden plantarflexion or dorsiflexion of the ankle, or by forced dorsiflexion of the ankle outside its normal range of motion. Other mechanisms by which the Achilles can be torn involve sudden direct trauma to the tendon, or sudden activation of the Achilles after atrophy from prolonged periods of inactivity. Some other common tears can occur from overuse while participating in intense sports. Twisting or jerking motions can also contribute to injury. Fluoroquinolone antibiotics, famously ciprofloxacin, are known to increase the risk of tendon rupture, particularly achilles. Symptoms Symptoms of an Achilles tendon rupture include sensation that someone or something

When the Achilles tendon which attaches the heel to the calf muscles becomes inflamed this is what is known as Achilles tendinitis. The main symptom to this injury is mild to acute pain located on and around the tendon. This injury is most commonly caused by overuse and strain on the Achilles tendon which can arise from a number of different things such as overtraining, poor biomechanics of the feet or from obesity. This injury is also fairly common amongst athletes and runners due to the increased amount of pressure and strain that running and sporting activities places upon the the Achilles tendon.. If you are suffering from Achilles tendinitis one of the best treatments is to wear orthotic insoles that will help to support your feet and protect the Achilles from further damage. Orthotic insoles are designed to realign your feet and correct biomechanical imbalances such as improper pronation which maybe causing excessive strain on your tendon that maybe contributing to your Achilles ...

Injury to the Achilles tendon causes pain along the back of your leg near the heel. Sometimes healthcare providers misdiagnose Achilles tendon injuries as a sprained ankle. Its important to get the right diagnosis so you can get the right treatment. Several common injuries can make your Achilles tendon painful or prevent it from working well. Your healthcare provider will consider the following when making a diagnosis:. ...
Currently, there is no consensus regarding the optimal management for patients following an Achilles tendon rupture. To allow comparisons between different treatments, a universally accepted outcome measure is required. However, there are currently a range of these reported within the literature.To recommend the most suitable patient-reported outcome measure for the assessment of patients following an Achilles tendon rupture, based on a systematic review of first what is currently used and second evidence of validity.The electronic databases MEDLINE, EMBASE and AMED were searched up to September 2010. Predefined inclusion and exclusion criteria were applied to identify what outcome measures are reported in the literature. Aspects of validity were defined and a checklist used to determine which aspects have been evaluated.Twenty-one outcome measures in 50 research papers were identified. The most commonly used was the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society hind-foot score. Of the 21 outcome measures
Marie Williams, DPM discusses the etiology and mechanism of injury of Achilles tendon ruptures. Dr Williams discusses clinical findings as well as comparing non-surgical and surgical treatment options for Achilles tendon ruptures.
Achilles tendinitis is inflammation of the Achilles tendon, which is the tendon that connects the calf musculature to the heel bone. Inflammation can occur in this tendon after a sudden injury or can occur over time based on the demands placed on the tendon. Risk factors for developing Achilles tendinitis include a tight hamstring or calf muscles (gastrocnemius or soleus) or a tight Achilles tendon, abrupt changes in activity level such as increasing running mileage too quickly or walking further distances than normal, changing running surfaces such as trail running or including hills, or starting new activities that involve sprinting, jumping, or changing directions quickly.. Achilles tendinitis may present with pain, tenderness, and stiffness along the tendon. This can occur directly over your heel bone or higher up towards your calf muscle. You may also notice swelling in the area. The calf may also feel weak. Numbness and tingling are not typically associated with this condition. Often ...
Your Achilles tendon is tough fibrous tissue that connects the heel to the muscles in your calf or back lower part of your leg. The Achilles is the thickest and strongest tendon in the body. When your calf muscles contract and pull on the Achilles tendon you push the foot downward. This motion allows you to stand on your toes, walk, run, and jump. Injuries to this tendon can be the result of overuse, misalignment when walking or running, improper footwear, weak or tight calf muscles and accidents. In severe cases the Achilles tendon can become torn. Learning to recognize the symptoms of a torn Achilles tendon will help you to get treatment as soon as possible to minimize complications.. ...

PURPOSE:. An initial step in the understanding of Achilles tendon dynamics is to investigate the effects of passive motion, thereby minimising muscle activation and reducing internal joint forces. Internal tendon dynamics during passive ankle joint motion have direct implications for clinical rehabilitation protocols after Achilles tendon surgery. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that tendon tissue displacement is different in different layers of the Achilles tendon during controlled passive ankle joint movements.. METHODS:. Ultrasound imaging was conducted on the right Achilles tendon of nine healthy recreationally active males. Standardised isokinetic passive dorsi-plantar-flexion movements were performed with a total range of motion of 35°. The tendon was divided into superficial, central and deep layers in the resulting B-mode ultrasound images viewed in the sagittal plane. A block-matching speckle tracking algorithm was applied post-process, with kernels for the measurement ...
We prospectively studied the effect of heavy-load eccentric calf muscle training in 15 recreational athletes (12 men and 3 women; mean age, 44.3 +/- 7.0 years) who had the diagnosis of chronic Achilles tendinosis (degenerative changes) with a long duration of symptoms despite conventional nonsurgical treatment. Calf muscle strength and the amount of pain during activity (recorded on a visual analog scale) were measured before onset of training and after 12 weeks of eccentric training. At week 0, all patients had Achilles tendon pain not allowing running activity, and there was significantly lower eccentric and concentric calf muscle strength on the injured compared with the noninjured side. After the 12-week training period, all 15 patients were back at their preinjury levels with full running activity. There was a significant decrease in pain during activity, and the calf muscle strength on the injured side had increased significantly and did not differ significantly from that of the noninjured ...
The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the human body. It connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. However, this tendon is also the most common site of rupture or tendonitis, an inflammation of the tendon due to overuse. Achilles tendon rupture is a partial or complete tear of the Achilles tendon. It comes on suddenly, sometimes with a popping sound, and can be debilitating. A full rupture is more severe, but less common, than a partial rupture. A full rupture splits the Achilles tendon so that it no longer connects the calf muscle to the heel: the calf muscle can no longer cause the foot to ?push off?, so normal walking is impossible. If it is a full rupture, then lightly pinching the Achilles tendon with the forefinger and thumb will reveal a gap in the Achilles tendon. Partial and full Achilles tendon ruptures are most likely to occur in sports requiring sudden stretching, such as sprinting and racquet sports. Partial Achilles tendon tears are also common among middle and long ...
We studied biopsies from the Achilles tendons of patients undergoing open repair for a subcutaneous rupture of their Achilles tendons (27 men, 11 women; mean age, 45.3 +/- 13.8 years) and specimens of Achilles tendons from persons with no known tendon ailments (43 men, 3 women; mean age, 64.2 +/- 9.7 years). Histologic examination was performed using stained slides that were interpreted using a semiquantitative grading scale assessing fiber structure and arrangement, rounding of the nuclei, regional variations in cellularity, increased vascularity, decreased collagen stainability, hyalinization, and glycosaminoglycan. We gave up to three marks for each of these variables, with 0 being normal and 3 being maximally abnormal. All the histology slides were assessed twice in a blinded manner; the agreement between two readings ranged from 0.56 to 0.87 (kappa statistics). The score of ruptured tendons was significantly greater than the average score of control tendons (20.5 +/- 3.6 versus 6.5 +/- ...
Allan:. You are experiencing a fairly typical injury that I often see in my sports podiatry practice: retrocalcaneal bursitis. This injury seems to occur mostly in runners over the age of 40 and is a result of inflammation of a bursa that exists between the front (i.e. anterior aspect) of the Achilles tendon and the back (i.e. posterior aspect) of the calcaneus, basically sandwiched tightly between the Achilles tendon and the posterior calcaneus. This injury is commonly misdiagnosed as "Achilles tendinitis" when, in fact, it is the bursa itself which is causing the pain and swelling (i.e. edema). It may or may not be associated with a retrocalcaneal spur, which, by the way, you do not have on your x-rays (i.e. standing lateral radiograph of the foot). However, you do have quite a prominent posterior-superior prominence to the calcaneus which may be one of the reasons why you developed retrocalcaneal bursitis, including your transition to shoe with a lower heel (i.e. lower heel-height ...
Typically, Achilles pain results from overuse of the calf muscles (e.g., running, jumping) or abnormal biomechanical stress on the foot and ankle.(1). Overuse can injure the fibrous tissue that connects the heel to the calf muscles. Treating an injured Achilles tendon is crucial to avoid exacerbating the injury further, which may lead to partial or full rupture of the tendon.. Tendinosis, sometimes complicated by partial rupture, appears to be the major lesion in chronic Achilles tendinopathy; the paratenon is rarely involved. Important features are a lack of inflammatory cells and a poor intrinsic ability to heal.. Several million Americans receive treatment for tendinosis each year, with more than 200,000 patients treated each year for Achilles tendonitis and tendinosis alone.(5) Conservative treatment options for Achilles pain include rest, stretching, strengthening, ice and/or physical therapy. In general, non-surgical treatment of Achilles tendonitis and tendinosis is believed to be ...
Background: The optimal rehabilitation protocol after surgical repair of an Achilles tendon rupture has not been well defined. The objective of this randomized study was to compare the effect of early weight-bearing with that of non-weight-bearing on early postoperative recovery following repair of an acutely ruptured Achilles tendon. Methods: Between October 2003 and May 2006, 110 patients with a surgically repaired Achilles tendon rupture were enrolled from one of two major trauma-care tertiary hospitals. All patients were non-weight-bearing for the first two weeks postoperatively. At the two-week postoperative visit, patients were randomized to either weight-bearing or non-weight-bearing for an additional four weeks. Compliance was measured with a pressure sensor in the fixed-hinge ankle-foot orthosis given to each patient. Follow-up assessments were performed at six weeks, three months, and six months postoperatively. The primary outcome was health-related quality of life assessed with use ...
Background: Wound complications following open repair for acute Achilles tendon ruptures (AATR) remain the subject of significant debate. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of covering repaired AATR using well-nourished connective tissues (paratenon and deep fascia) to avoid complications after open repair. Methods: In this case series study, open repair was performed for 32 active young patients with AATR. After the tendon was repaired, the deep fascia and paratenon was used to cover the Achilles tendon. Patients were followed for two years and any wound complication was recorded. During the last visit, the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) ankle-hind foot score was completed for all patients. Calf circumference and ankle range of motion were measured and compared with the contralateral side. Patients were asked about returning to previous sports activities and limitations with footwear. Results: Only, one patient developed deep wound infection (3%). None of the
Your Achilles tendon is a large band of tissue in the back of your ankle. It connects your calf muscles to your heel bone. You use it almost every time you move your leg. But repeated stress can make the tendon more prone to injury. A complete tear through the tendon is known as an Achilles tendon rupture.
The Achilles tendon runs down the back of the lower leg and connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. An Achilles tendon rupture is a complete or partial tear
Stretch your calf muscles before exercising or playing sports. Stretching can help make stress on the Achilles tendon less sudden. This can prevent an Achilles tendon rupture.

Achilles tendon rupture is caused during instances of intense physical exercise like running or jumping. As the Achilles tendon is prone to injuries in the human body.
Anyone who has read up on their Greek mythology knows that an Achilles Heel isnt necessarily a good spot to rely on. However, most of us rely on our Achilles tendon to a tremendous degree: we use it when jumping, running, walking - pretty much any time we use our foot. Despite its mythological association with weakness, the Achilles tendon (a thick, cord-like bunch of tissue that attaches the calf muscle to the back of the heel bone) is actually the strongest and largest tendon in the body. Unfortunately, its also susceptible to injury, since the muscles that pull on it exert more force than any other in the leg. To make matters worse, blood circulation to the tendon is relatively poor, which means that it generally isnt able to heal quickly when injured.. Injuries tend to happen to the Achilles tendon when we overuse it, resulting in inflammation (aka tendonitis). This can happen most frequently with individuals whose activity suddenly increases or changes, such as those who are active only ...
BACKGROUND: There is no consensus on the best method for management of acute Achilles tendon ruptures. Individual preferences, drawn from experience and study, determine whether treatment is operative or nonoperative. PURPOSE: Our goal was to review the literature to try to determine what management method was the most popular and effective. We wanted to ascertain the best results in terms of complication rates and patient outcomes. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review of retrospectively and prospectively collected data. METHODS: We analyzed 125 articles in peer-reviewed journals for year of publication, patient numbers, sex, management method, follow-up complications, and patient satisfaction. Each article was graded using a validated methods score. Methods, patient satisfaction, and complication rates were correlated with the year each article was published. RESULTS: Skin-healing complications were lowest in conservatively managed patients (3 of 578, 0.5%) and highest in open repair and ...
The Achilles tendon is the most frequently ruptured tendon. Both acute and chronic (neglected) tendon ruptures can dramatically affect a patients quality of life, and require a prolonged period of recovery before return to pre-injury activity levels. This paper describes the use of an adhesive-coated biologic scaffold to augment primary suture repair of transected Achilles tendons. The adhesive portion consisted of a synthetic mimic of mussel adhesive proteins that can adhere to various surfaces in a wet environment, including biologic tissues. When combined with biologic scaffolds such as bovine pericardium or porcine dermal tissues, these adhesive constructs demonstrated lap shear adhesive strengths significantly greater than that of fibrin glue, while reaching up to 60% of the strength of a cyanoacrylate-based adhesive. These adhesive constructs were wrapped around transected cadaveric porcine Achilles tendons repaired with a combination of parallel and three-loop suture patterns. Tensile ...

Assessment of the Thyroid: Achilles Tendon Reflex (Woltmans Sign). Quotes by Ray Peat, PhD:. One of the oldest tests for hypothyroidism was the Achilles tendon reflex test in which the rate of relaxation of the calf muscle corresponds to thyroid functionthe relaxation is slow in hypothyroid people. Water, sodium, and calcium are more slowly expelled by the hypothyroid muscle. Exactly the same slow relaxation occurs in the hypothyroid heart muscle, contributing to heart failure, because the semi-contracted heart cant receive as much blood as the normally relaxed heart. The hypothyroid blood vessels are unable to relax properly, contributing to hypertension. Hypothyroid nerves dont easily return to their energized relaxed state, leading to insomnia, parasthesias, movement disorders, and nerves that are swollen and very susceptible to pressure damage.. The thyroid hormone keeps the cellular energy high, the adrenaline low, and reflexes strong. It undoubtedly has an important effect on both ...
Achilles tendinitis is an overuse injury of the Achilles (uh-KIL-eez) tendon, the band of tissue that connects calf muscles at the back of the lower leg to your heel bone.. Achilles tendinitis most commonly occurs in runners who have suddenly increased the intensity or duration of their runs. Its also common in middle-aged people who play sports, such as tennis or basketball, only on the weekends.. Most cases of Achilles tendinitis can be treated with relatively simple, at-home care under your doctors supervision. Self-care strategies are usually necessary to prevent recurring episodes. More-serious cases of Achilles tendinitis can lead to tendon tears (ruptures) that may require surgical repair.. ...

This study investigated reliability of freehand three-dimensional ultrasound (3DUS) measurement of in vivo human Achilles tendon (AT) moment arm. Sixteen healthy adults were scanned on 2 separate occasions by a single investigator. 3DUS scans were performed over the free AT, medial malleolus, and lateral malleolus with the ankle passively positioned in maximal dorsiflexion, mid dorsiflexion, neutral, mid plantar flexion and maximal plantar flexion. 3D reconstructions of the AT, medial malleolus, and lateral malleolus were created from manual segmentation of the ultrasound images and used to geometrically determine the AT moment arm using both a straight (straight ATMA) and curved (curved ATMA) tendon line-of-action. Both methods were reliable within- and between-session (intra-class correlation coefficients , 0.92; coefficient of variation , 2.5 %) and revealed that AT moment arm increased by ∼ 7 mm from maximal dorsiflexion (∼ 41mm) to maximal plantar flexion (∼ 48 mm). Failing to account ...

WHAT IS ACHILLES TENDON RUPTURE?. Achilles tendon rupture is where the large tendon in the back of the ankle ruptures.. HOW IS ACHILLES TENDON RUPTURE DIAGNOSED?. There is a sudden pain behind the ankle. Physical examination shows a gap in the tendon and squeezing the calf muscle does not result in movement of the foot.. X-rays are usually performed to evaluate for other possible conditions. A MRI scan is needed to evaluate for the severity of the tear within the tendon.. WHAT ARE THE CAUSES?. Rupture most commonly occurs during recreational sports that require bursts of jumping, pivoting, and running. Most often these are tennis, racquetball, basketball, and badminton. The injury can also happen due to sudden trip, stumble or fall from a significant height.. HOW TO PREVENT ACHILLES TENDON RUPTURE?. Stretch the Achilles tendon before exercise, even at the start of the day helps to maintain flexibility in the ankle joint.

Although Achilles tendinitis cannot be completely prevented, the risk of developing it can be lowered. Being aware of the possible causes does help, but the risk can be greatly reduced by taking the following precautions. Getting a variety of exercise - alternating between high-impact exercises (e.g. running) and low-impact exercise (e.g. swimming) can help, as it means there are days when the Achilles tendon is under less tension. Limit certain exercises - doing too much hill running, for example, can put excessive strain on the Achilles tendon. Wearing the correct shoes and replacing them when worn - making sure they support the arch and protect the heel will create less tension in the tendon. Using arch supports inside the shoe, if the shoe is in good condition but doesnt provide the required arch support this is a cheaper (and possibly more effective) alternative to replacing the shoe completely. Stretching, doing this before and after exercising helps to keep the Achilles tendon flexible, ...

Continued long term aggravation can eventually lead to complete failure, with a resulting acute tear of the tendon.. Symptoms of Achilles injury are usually described as diffuse pain in or around the back of the ankle (from the calf to the heel). The pain is aggravated by activity, especially uphill running or stair climbing, and relieved somewhat by wearing higher-heeled shoes. Often, a recent increase in activity levels (such as running longer distances) or a change in footwear is reported by the sufferer.. Surgeons have noted that overused Achilles tendon tissue is dull, slightly brown and soft, in comparison to normal tendon tissue, which is white, glistening and firm. This is due to damage of the tendon collagen, not inflammation. This explains why anti-inflammatory strategies (such as drugs and corticosteroid injections) are not indicated for these conditions, and actually may interfere with tendon repair.. Achilles tendon injury is not due to inflammation, but an underlying degeneration ...
The Achilles tendon is a is cord like fibrous tissue that links the heel bone (calcaneus) to the muscles of the lower leg (the calf muscles/gastroc-soleus muscles). The calf muscles are one of the most powerful muscle group in the body and the Achilles tendon is the thickest and strongest tendon in the body. Contracting the calf muscles…

Chronic Achilles tendonitis exhibits the same form of pain as acute Achilles tendonitis but the location of the pain is usually at the insertion of the Achilles tendon into the heel. Chronic Achilles tendonitis can also cause hypertrophy enlargement) of the posterior heel. Pain may be from the tendon pulling away from the heel, or from the enlargement of the heel rubbing against the shoe. This bony enlargement of the back of the heel goes by many names including retrocalcaneal bursitis, pump bump or Haglunds Deformity. The main difference between Achilles tendonitis and a pump bump can easily be understood by evaluating the pain whilst barefoot (Achilles tendonitis) compared to pain while wearing shoes with an enclosed heel (pump bump ...
The Achilles tendons are thick and powerful bands of fibrous tissue. They connect your calf muscles to your heel bones. The tendons help you walk, run and jump. And that means they are under a lot of stress, making injuries to the Achilles tendons common.
Ultrasound speckle tracking was used to compare tendon deformation patterns between uninjured and surgically repaired Achilles tendons at 14-27-month follow-up. The hypothesis was that the non-homogenous displacement pattern previously described in uninjured tendons, where displacement within deep layers of the tendons exceeds that of superficial layers, is altered following tendon rupture and subsequent surgical repair. In the first part of this study, an in-house-developed block-matching speckle tracking algorithm was evaluated for assessment of displacement on porcine flexor digitorum tendons. Displacement data from speckle tracking were compared to displacement data from manual tracking. In the second part of the study, eleven patients with previous unilateral surgically treated Achilles tendon rupture were investigated using ultrasound speckle tracking. The difference in superficial and deep tendon displacement was assessed. Displacement patterns in the surgically repaired and uninjured ...
Recent experimental and clinical evidence suggests that early loading and mobilisation for Achilles tendon ruptures may improve functional outcomes. This paper presents the results of a pilot study designed to assess the safety of immediate weight-bearing mobilisation. Twenty-eight operatively repaired patients were randomised to either immediate loading in an orthosis or traditional serial plaster casting. An independent observer, blinded to treatment, assessed the results. Improved clinical, anthropometric, and functional outcomes were noted in the immediate loading group. Ultrasound assessment confirmed no deleterious effects upon the tenodesis. There was one re-rupture of the tendon at a minimum follow-up of 1 year.
Achilles tendon tear or rupture occurs at the back of your lower leg. Achilles tendon tear occurs more commonly in those engaged in sporting activities.
The patient is positioned prone after administration of either general or regional anesthesia. A longitudinal incision is made on either the medial or lateral aspect of the tendon. If a lateral incision is chosen care must be taken to identify and protect the sural nerve. Length of the incision averages 3 to 10 cm. Once the paratenon is incised longitudinally, the tendon ends are easily identifies. These are then re-approximated with either a Bunnell or Kessler or Krackow type suture technique with nonabsorbable suture. Next, the epitenon is repaired with a cross stitch technique. The paratenon should be repaired if it will be useful to prevent adhesions. Finally, a meticulous skin closure will limit wound complications. An alternative method is to perform a percutaneous technique, with a small incision (ranging from 2-4 cm). A few salient points include: the incision should be extended as needed, no self-retaining retractors should be used, and meticulous paratenon and wound closure is ...

The incidence of Achilles tendon ruptures has risen with the increase in the level of sports activity of the average individual. An Achilles tendon rupture is generally diagnosed on the basis of clinical findings, sometimes in conjunction with ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging tests. The treatment of Achilles tendon ruptures is broadly divided into surgical treatment and conservative treatment, and the gold standard treatment remains a controversial issue. The surgical treatment of Achilles tendon ruptures has been reported to be associated with a lower re-tear rate and thus has been the conventional choice of treatment, in particular the direct repair for its ability to restore muscle strength. But recently percutaneous repairs and minimally invasive methods have become more widespread. And the previously undervalued functional rehabilitation such as early weight-bearing and postoperative joint exercises has gained greater importance for their capacity to restore tendon function ...
