Because of your foot and ankle, how much difficulty do you have with: In two patients the re-rupture was due to a fall in the first six weeks of rehabilitation. After thorough adhesiolysis we managed to perform a reconstruction of the tendon without a lengthening of the tendon in all patients.

Non-operative treatment with early functional rehabilitation is also more advocated nowadays [2]. The heel-rise test is the most commonly used test for leppilahhti calf muscle endurance 28 Fig. Surgical treatment of acute Achilles tendon ruptures significantly reduces the risk of re-rupture compared with non-surgical treatment, but produces significantly higher risks of other complications, including wound infection [1].

Conversely, disease-specific measures are designed to assess function, pain and disability in specific conditions, and have the important advantage of showing greater responsiveness in capturing changes in the targeted disease. Introduction Proper wcore tools are of the utmost importance both in the scientific setting, for the evaluation and comparison of research studies, and in the clinical setting, for guiding therapeutic decisions and assessing the progression of treatments.
