We performed two independent, randomised, controlled trials in order to assess the potential benefits of immediate weight-bearing mobilisation after rupture of the tendo Achillis. The first trial, on operatively-treated patients showed an improved functional outcome for patients mobilised fully weight-bearing after surgical repair. Two cases of rerupture in the treatment group suggested that careful patient selection is required as patients need to follow a structured rehabilitation regimen.doi:10.1302/0301-620x.88b1.16549 pmid:16365124 fatcat:uzh2se57rzcohdvowxn3tugbdu
