Fig. 2. (A) The ultrasound image showed a gap (white bilateral arrows) caused by loss of continuity of Achilles tendon in the patients with re-rupture of Achilles tendon during hiking, who was a 71-year-old male and had a surgical history for a ruptured Achilles tendon 7 months ago. (B) The gap was narrowed after 2 months by conservative management including heel lifting and activity modification. (C) After three months of conservative treatment, the follow-up ultrasound image showed narrower gap and thicker surrounding tissue (small empty arrows), which replaced substantial continuity and the gait was improved.
