Endoscopy Assisted Percutaneous Repair for Achilles Tendon Rupture Instead of Open Surgical Treatment

Gokay Gormeli, Yuksel Ersoy


Achilles tendon (AT) is the strongest and most ruptured tendon due to increasing sports activities. Operative treatment techniques for AT ruptures are open, percutaneous or endoscopic assisted percutaneous techniques. Endoscopy-assisted percutaneous suturing of the Achilles tendon is an optimal treatment with cosmetic wound healing and short time recovery which may be the first choice for patients with AT rupture with wound healing problems and for athletic population with better clinical outcomes than other treatment methods.

Key words: Percutaneous, endoscopy, repair, Achilles tendon
