The study comprises a number of 25 patients with Achilles tendon total rupture, 22 men and 3 women, aged between 22 and 40. Out of these 15 are sportsmen and 10 practice recreational sports occasionally. All the subjects were allocated either to surgical treatment followed by functional rehabilitation or to non-surgical treatment with eight weeks immobilization, followed by kinetotherapy. The period of follow-up was two years. Evaluation consisted in individual clinical observation, clinical measurements, muscular performance tests and the overall outcome score after the healing of Achilles tendon rupture. Both the patients with surgical treatment as well as those with non-surgical treatment regained a normal functional rehabilitation in an approximately equal interval.
Key words: rupture, Achilles tendon.
