according to M. H. Amlang – H. Zwipp


  • Percutaneous suture of the acute Achilles tendon rupture


  • Minimises the risk of a lesion of the sural nerve
  • No incision in the rupture area, allowing the preservation of the peritendineum
  • Stabile intratendinous anchorage for the suture material

  • Just one small skin incision that is not located in the shoe contact area
