Calcaneal Achilles Avulsion Fracture: Clinical Practice Guideline . Background . Avulsion fractures of the posterior calcaneal tuberosity are rare injuries; with a prevalence of 1-3% of all calcaneal fractures. This type of extra-articular fracture is typically the result of twisting forces in the hindfoot Avulsion of the bony insertion of the Achilles tendon at the calcaneus is infrequent and is diagnosed by radiography. Open reduction and internal fixation is indicated to achieve bone to bone healing and restoration of the function and continuity of the triceps surae mechanism An Achilles sleeve avulsion was recognized preoperatively in 7 of 11 (64%) cases, where lateral ankle radiographs demonstrated a small radiodensity several centimeters proximal to the calcaneal insertion. Intraoperatively, 90.9% of sleeve avulsions had a concomitant Haglund deformity and macroscopic evidence of insertional tendinopathy . 5 Although screwing, tension band wire or Steinmann pin fixation is preferred in the repair of calcaneus avulsion fractures, poor bone quality, the lack of. The Injury I had what is called an Avulsion Fracture of the Achilles tendon. The difference is that while a rupture is a violent partial or complete severing of the Achilles tendon an Avulsion Fracture happens when the tendon dismounts from the bone, often taking pieces of the bone with it
EPIDEMIOLOGY. Achilles tendon rupture accounts for 20% of all large tendon ruptures. 12) The estimated incidence ranges from 11 to 37 per 100,000 population. 13,14,15) Men are 2 to 12 times more prone to Achilles tendon rupture than women. 16) In a 2012 meta-analysis by Soroceanu et al., 10) the mean age at the time of injury among 826 patients with an acute Achilles tendon rupture was 39.8 years Achilles (uh-KILL-eez) tendon rupture is an injury that affects the back of your lower leg. It mainly occurs in people playing recreational sports, but it can happen to anyone. The Achilles tendon is a strong fibrous cord that connects the muscles in the back of your calf to your heel bone , and the Achilles tendon enthesis is in a relatively constant location; therefore, avulsion fractures occur in reproducible locations
As with rupture of the Achilles tendon, the mechanisms of injury are forced plantar flexion or abrupt dorsiflexion. Four types of calcaneal fractures are generally described. 2 Type I fractures are most common and are characterized by small avulsions of the calcaneal tuberosity fragments of the calcaneal tuberosity. The Achilles tendon insertion was examined intraoperatively. A reduction clamp was used to reduce the avulsion fracture fragment of the calcaneal tuberosity. Two Kirschner wires were used for tem-porary ﬁxation. After good reduction was conﬁrmed by ﬂuo-roscopy, the avulsion fracture fragment of the. Achilles tendon rupture affects about 1 in 15,000 people at any one time, increasing to 1 in 8,000 in competitive athletes. It can occur at any age but is most common between the ages of 30 and 50. The Achilles tendon usually rupt ures without warning. As with any muscle or tendon in the body, the Achilles tendon can be torn if there is a hig Achilles Tendon Ruptures are common tendon injuries that occur due to sudden dorsiflexion of a plantarflexed foot, most commonly associated with sporting events. Diagnosis can be made clinically with weakness of plantarflexion with a positive Thompson's test. MRI studies may be indicated for surgical management of chronic injuries Achilles tendon tears are the most common ankle tendon injuries, with microtears to full thickness tendon tears of the Achilles tendon and are most commonly seen secondary to sports-related injury, especially squash and basketball
This video demonstrates a speedbridge repair of a calcaneal avulsion fracture. The bone fragment is excised and the tendon is repair back to the calcaneus (h.. The Achilles tendon is the largest and the most frequently ruptured tendon in the lower extremity. The most frequent site of rupture is approximately 2 to 6 cm proximal to the insertion of the tendon on the calcaneus, whereas more distal ruptures occurring at the calcaneal insertion—also known as Achilles sleeve avulsion—are less common [ 1 ]
Sleeve avulsion fracture of the Achilles tendon insertion is rare and has an enormous shortening potential. The method of fixation chosen should be able to resist the tremendous pull of the triceps surae in order to minimize the risk of re-rupture. Screw fixation is not effective to resist the pull out tension of the triceps surae Early surgery is also often recommended for an avulsion fracture. Although uncommon, a piece of the calcaneus can be pulled off when the Achilles tendon splits away from the bone (avulsion). For this type of fracture, emergent surgery can decrease the risk of injury to the skin around the Achilles tendon. Surgical procedure
Avulsion is the medical term for 'tearing away' from the point of attachment. A piece of bone attached to the tendon may also be torn away from the main body of bone (avulsion fracture). Injuries to the Achilles' tendon can cause partial or complete ruptures. An injury to a tendon is defined as a strain Achilles tenodesis using suture anchor after bone fragment resection. The Achilles tendon insertion site was exposed (a) and all fracture fragments were excised (b).The drill for the medial anchor was drilled into the fifth metatarsal (c) and the drill for the lateral anchor was tilted towards the first metatarsal (d).The tail of a FiberLink™ suture was passed, for use as a shuttle, through. Early surgery is also often recommended for an avulsion fracture. Although uncommon, a piece of the calcaneus can be pulled off when the Achilles tendon splits away from the bone (avulsion). For this type of fracture, emergent surgery can decrease the risk of injury to the skin around the Achilles tendon The avulsed fragment is displaced cephalad owing to the pull of the Achilles tendon (, 36). Calcaneal insufficiency avulsion fracture can be differentiated from typical stress fractures in that the latter have normal bone density and do not become displaced. Posterior capsular avulsion of the ankle that involves the distal tibia is rare (, 37. In this system, a type I fracture refers to a sleeve type or true avulsion fracture, type II is the beak fracture, type III is an infrabursal avulsion from the middle third of the posterior tuberosity, and finally type IV is a variation of the beak where a small triangular fragment is separated from the upper border of the tuberosity [
Calcaneal Avulsion Fracture With Achilles SpeedBridge™ Repair. Andre J. Pagliaro, MD, (Mercerville, NJ) presents a unique way to treat calcaneal avulsion injuries using the Achilles SpeedBridge™ system in this cadaveric demonstration The signs of an injury to the Achilles' tendon can vary. Many animals will be lame on that limb with a variable amount of swelling around the injury. An animal with a complete rupture of the Achilles' tendon will walk flat-footed or dropped (a plantigrade stance), and the toes can be curled downward (crab claw stance) like the animal is trying to grip the floor (Figure 1) An avulsion fracture occurs when a small chunk of bone attached to a tendon or ligament gets pulled away from the main part of the bone. The hip, elbow and ankle are the most common locations for avulsion fractures in the young athlete. You may need to spend a few weeks on crutches if you have an avulsion fracture around your hip The Achilles tendon connects the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles to the calcaneal tuberosity. The tendon is covered by fascia and skin. The gap between the tendon and bone is filled by areolar and adipose tissue. On lateral view of the ankle, this is called Kager triangle. Obliteration or distortion of Kager triangle indicates pathology a This procedure attaches the Achilles tendon with the avulsion fragment using the Krackow suture, so that a firm fixation can be achieved even if the bony fragment is thin and small. Banerjee et al ( 4 ) described a technique in which the suture was passed through the Achilles tendon using the Krackow technique and through the bone tunnels in.
Avulsion Fracture of the Ankle in Adults and Children. An avulsion fracture occurs when a muscle or tendon is pulled so hard at the spot where it attaches to the bone that it tears a small piece of bone away. Avulsion fractures can occur on any part of the body, but they are most common in the ankles, hips, and elbows Background:Avulsion fracture of the Achilles tendon is a less common but debilitating disorder. There is a paucity of literature on this problem.Purpose:To present a retrospective case series asses.. the calcaneus or ruptures causing an avulsion fracture of the calcaneus, the use of suture anchors is highly considered. Suture anchors are used to repair and reconnect the Achilles directly into the calcaneus bone. Often times this is an intra-op decision. What is the recovery process like for an Achilles tendon repair Purpose: To explore a new transosseous suture technique for the repair of Achilles sleeve avulsion and observe the short-term curative effect. Methods:In total, 11 patients diagnosed with Achilles sleeve avulsion underwent this new surgical technique and were followed for a mean time of 40 months
Technique 1: Open Repair of Acute Achilles Tendon Rupture. The patient is placed in a prone position, with axillary rolls under the chest and adequate padding of the upper extremities to avoid any possible neurovascular injury during surgery. General or spinal anesthesia is satisfactory Both fractures were treated surgically with modified tension-band wiring, cerclage wiring, and screws. Six months after the surgery on the left side, the patient had a left Achilles tendon rupture proximal to its insertion into the calcaneus. Conclusion: Calcaneal avulsion fractures are rare but often have complications Fixation of tendo Achilles avulsion fracture. Achilles tendon ruptures occur commonly in the midsubstance of the tendon, usually 2-6 cm proximal to the insertion to the calcaneus. Ruptures near its insertion into the calcaneus are less common and mostly found in hyperpronators with a heel spur (Haglund's deformity) Radiographs should be obtained to exclude avulsion of the posterior tuberosity of the calcaneus , bony deformities, and calcification of the tendon. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be helpful in the uncertain diagnosis of an Achilles tendon rupture and chronic tendinosis
It is important that an avulsion fracture of the calcaneal tuberosity (Figure 2) is not inadvertently diagnosed as an Achilles tendon rupture. These fractures commonly occur in elderly patients with diabetes, patients taking immunosuppressive medication or those with a history of osteopaenia. 12 During examination, if palpation of the Achilles. Agni et al 15 applied the hook plate to the avulsion fracture of the calcaneal tuberosity and found that it can also be firmly fixed. Lui 6 believed that the stop point of the Achilles tendon was located at the posterior tubercle of the calcaneus. In order to restore the normal biomechanical function of the Achilles tendon, surgical treatment. Avulsion fracture achilles tendon. Ankle sprain avulsion fracture. Avulsion fracture 5th metatarsal.

As stated above, the biggest challenge of these fractures is soft tissue problems. 3 9 The tuberosity is pulled cranial by the Achilles tendon, after which the sharp fractured end of the tuberosity can press against the skin (figure 1 A), leading to increased pressure and, eventually, decubitus (figure 2 A) and necrosis of the skin. 3 6 7 10 To. Achilles tendon anatomy. Most frequently ruptures 2-6cm above calcaneus (where blood supply is weakest) Typical patient is 30-50yr old man who participates in strenuous activities on occasional basis. Quinolone -associated rupture occurs in only 12 per 100,000 treatment episodes, and risk may be equivalent to oral steroids or non-quinolone. Because the Achilles tendon has the following criteria including 1) a broad based insertion on the calcaneus, 2) a braided and coiled anatomical pattern with 90° rotated collagen fibers, and 3) a variable and sudden distribution of force on each avulsion, the resulting patterns of avulsion fracture are as diverse as the potential patient. Achilles tendon injury. The Achilles tendon, also called the common calcaneal tendon, is composed of three tendinous structures including the gastrocnemius tendon, the superficial digital flexor tendon, and the common tendon of the biceps femoris, gracilis, and semitendinosus muscles. This tendon is most frequently injured by laceration in both. Therefore, a small longitudinal Achilles incision was made directly posterior over the impinging bone. this fragment in and of itself also was a fracture split in 2, but was stabilized by the Achilles tendon. Due to the further fractures of the calcaneus on the inferior portion, partial bone was removed to debulk the bony attachment of the.

Evaluation of individuals from an bio-mechanical and physiological perspective to optimise performance 5. Heel Lift and Walking Boot. For people who must be on their feet while waiting for an Achilles injury to heal, a walking boot can provide support and a one-inch heel lift or wedge inserted into the boot can help remove further strain on the Achilles tendon.. 6. Physical Therapy. Physical therapy is useful for flexibility and injury prevention, especially by learning proper form for any.
Among the 78 patients in our hospital with calcaneal fractures over the past 10 years, three (3.8 %) had avulsion fractures of the insertion of Achilles tendon. These cases are reported here. Case 1 was a 56-year-old female who been injured by a strong blow to her left heel. A 2.5 cm bone fragment of the calcaneal tuberosity was recognized with. • Must be a complete, mid-substance Achilles tendon rupture & not a tendon avulsion from the calcaneus or gastroc/soleus. • Once non-operative treatment is deemed appropriate: o Immobilization with cast in maximum passive plantar-flexion position and instructed to remain non weight-bearing for 2 weeks Achilles tendon injury. We repair Achilles tendon ruptures without an open surgery. Over the past 20 years, we have optimized a technique allowing us to avoid making an open incision and preserve the growth factors to speed healing and decrease infection. The Achilles is a dense band of tissue that passes behind the ankle joint Achilles tendon rupture is a common injury that occurs at an incidence of 2.66 per 1000 persons years or 18 per 100,000 population (PMID: 23386750). Middle-aged males are the largest group affected by this injury, and most injuries occur during athletic participation, most commonly basketball, soccer, or tennis evaluate tendon defect. identify the level of the rupture of the Achilles tendon; attempt to identify the plantaris tendon; mobilize the proximal Achilles tendon by sweeping a finger circumferentially aroung the tendon border (thus breaking up adhesions); using non-traumatic clamps, match the ends of the ruptured tendon to achieve optimal length
Achilles tendonitis is also referred to as Achilles tendinopathy or Achilles tendinosis. It is an overuse injury causing pain, inflammation or degeneration of the Achilles tendon at the back of the ankle. The Achilles tendon is the large thick band of tissue at the back of the ankle. It connects the calf muscles to the back of the heel Three patients with acute Achilles tendon avulsion, chronic patellar tendon rupture, and chronic avulsion fracture of the triceps tendon (Table 1) underwent tendinoplasty using the novel implant (Novaten ® 8000, Novetech Surgery, Monaco). The decision to perform tendinoplasty was taken in these three cases, as the novel synthetic implant may provide a better option than conventional techniques This is quite rare, occurring in only a small fraction of patients with Achilles injuries. Patients suffering this type of Achilles avulsion injury tend to be older with weaker bone. Imaging Studies. Plain x-rays will be negative in patients who have suffered an Achilles tendon rupture. The rupture will be seen on MRI

A small avulsion fracture of the olecranon (positive Flake sign) is pathognomonic for triceps tendon avulsion; these fractures are appreciated on lateral radiographs in 80% of cases. 3,20 Radiographs can exclude concomitant injuries, such as radial head and distal humerus.
Avulsion fractures of the Achilles tendon insertion - most are simple avulsion fractures. Neuropathic fractures can occur at this site (Brodsky type 3B) Fracture of the tuberosity - usually direct injury ; Fracture of the anterior process - usually caused by an inversion injury and may be missed in what was thought to be an ankle ligmament injury An avulsion fracture is an injury to the bone in a place where a tendon or ligament attaches to the bone. In the anterior iliac spine which is part of the pelvis the common sites of avulsion fractures are at the attachment of Abstract: Avulsion fracture of the Achilles tendon is uncommon. Open reduction and internal fixation is indicated for displaced fracture in order to restore the normal function of the Achilles tendon. We present a patient with avulsion fracture of Achilles tendon that was complicated by the development of secondary Haglund's deformity and. Ifthe Achilles tendon disruption is only discovered later once the fracture is healed, subsequent management would have been difficult with surgical treatment being more morbid . While this is a rare injury, the consequences of a missed chronic Achilles tendon disruption are severe with significant dysfunction
Keywords: avulsion, calcaneal tuberosity, fracture, reef knot Avulsion fracture of the calcaneal tuberosity accounts for 1% to 3% of all calcaneal fractures, and its incidence peaks in women in their 70s, whose calcaneal bone strength and mineral content have decreased.2,14 Although nonoperative treatment has been recommended for fractures with. Acute midsubstance Achilles tendon ruptures, an increasingly common athletic injury in patients 30 years to 50 years old, can result in significant functional limitation and decreased quality of life Calcaneal tuberosity (Achilles tendon avulsion) Intra-articular . 75% of calcaneus fractures; 2 classification systems.

A calcaneal fracture is a break of the calcaneus (heel bone). Symptoms may include pain, bruising, trouble walking, and deformity of the heel. It may be associated with breaks of the hip or back.. It usually occurs when a person lands on their feet following a fall from a height or during a motor vehicle collision. Diagnosis is suspected based on symptoms and confirmed by X-rays or CT scanning the attachment to the triceps has been violated, an Achilles tendon allograft reconstruction is employed (Fig. 11-10). In this setting a chevron cut is made in the tip of the olecranon (Fig. 11-11). The calcaneal attachment of the Achilles tendon is then fashioned with the same angle (Fig. 11-12) Ramanujam, CL, Capobianco, CM & Zgonis, T 2009, ' Ilizarov External Fixation Technique for Repair of a Calcaneal Avulsion Fracture and Achilles Tendon Rupture ', Foot & Ankle Specialist, vol. 2, no. 6, pp. 306-308
However, reports of new developed fresh rupture of the Achilles tendon in other sites are is extremely rare. Our report is about one uncommon case of a traumatic calcaneal tuberosity avulsion fracture following augmented repair, which was performed using the Krackow locking loop technique
