Abstract

Despite extensive research, the management of acute ruptures of the Achilles tendon remains an area of controversy, and there is no consensus regarding the optimal treatment. An InternalBrace™ (Arthrex, Inc., Naples, Florida) is a ligament augmentation repair using high strength sutures/tape and knotless bone anchors which encourages healing and allows early mobilization. This article describes, with video illustration, a knotless Achilles tendon repair technique using the InternalBrace™ principle.
