Percutaneous repair of the Achilles tendon is now well established. Sural nerve injury is one of the commonest complications following this method of repair. We present our current method of percutaneous repair which permits a less invasive approach to the tendon, accurate opposition of the tendon ends, and minimises the chance of sural nerve injury.

Abstract

Percutaneous repair of the Achilles tendon is now well established. Sural nerve injury is one of the commonest complications following this method of repair. We present our current method of percutaneous repair which permits a less invasive approach to the tendon, accurate opposition of the tendon ends, and minimises the chance of sural nerve injury.
