Achilles tenorrhaphy in five dogs: a modified surgical technique and evaluation of a cranial half cast

Veterinary and Comparative Orthopaedics and Traumatology 11(4): 205-210

Achilles tenorrhaphy in five dogs: a modified surgical technique and evaluation of a cranial half cast

Achilles mechanism rupture in 4 of 5 dogs was treated with tenorrhaphy using a modified surgical technique designed to optimize accurate apposition of tendon to bone. Two bone tunnels were drilled in the calcaneal tuber from a plantomedial-dorsolateral and plantolateral-dorsomedial direction, respectively. The distal ends of the tendons were sutured to the calcaneal tuber using a Krachow suture pattern. The remaining dog had a mid-tendon Achilles mechanism rupture.
