Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 48-year-old man who sustained a complete rupture of the left Achilles tendon during military service. It states that he passed through primary suture repair of the tendon, but a new rupture occurred when he returned to work four months after the operation. It discusses the use of a kinetic dynamometer combined with magnetic resonance imaging to evaluate the functional outcome of the reconstructed ankle and morbidity in the donor thigh.
