Although, alternative tenorrhaphy techniques have been developed, adhesions that form during the healing process and loss of function induced by this condition are still a significant problem in tendon surgery.
For this purpose, we applied a gel containing hyaluronic acid in one group, and synovial fluid in the other group after tenorrhaphy and then evaluated the tendons for adhesion formation.
(6) suggests that the deficit in calf muscle strength after Achilles tenorrhaphy could be potentially improved by early rehabilitation treatments (5, 6).
Currently, there is a lack of knowledge regarding whether higher repetitions and ability to perform single-leg heel rises at the third month is generated by early treatment, where controlled strength training is given during the first four weeks after Achilles tenorrhaphy. Moreover, it is relevant to know what the ATRS characteristics of patients who recover and do not recover early performance of single-leg heel rises are.
