Achilles tendon reconstruction after sural fasciocutaneous flap using Achilles tendon allograft with attached calcaneal bone block



Achilles tendon reconstruction after sural fasciocutaneous flap using Achilles tendon allograft with attached calcaneal bone block



Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery 49(1): 86.E5



Addressing segmental loss of the Achilles tendon with overlying soft tissue loss is a serious challenge. We present a case of Achilles tendon reconstruction in a patient who had significant soft tissue loss as well as segmental loss of the tendon involving the calcaneal insertion. The staged reconstruction was undertaken with a combination of a sural fasciocutaneous flap and an Achilles tendon allograft with an attached calcaneal bone block.
