- Peritenolysis and Debridement for Main Body (Mid-Portion) Achilles Tendinopathy in Athletic Patients: Results of 107 ProceduresThe Journal of Foot and Ankle SurgeryVol. 56Issue 5
- PreviewAchilles tendinopathy in the main body (mid-portion) of the tendon is a common pathologic finding among active and athletic populations and can be debilitating without proper and adequate treatment. Numerous surgical approaches for this common pathologic finding have been reported, with variable outcomes. We evaluated the surgical outcomes of peritenolysis and debridement of main body Achilles tendinopathy among athletic populations using the return to activity (RTA) and decreased desired activity (DDA) as our primary outcome measures.
