Fig. 4. (A) Magnetic resonance image (MRI) of a 64-year-old male patient who visited clinic due to infected disruption of the surgical wound after the open repair of Achilles tendon rupture, shows continuity loss and infection. The T2-weighted sagittal MRI showed loss of continuity and infectious lesions in Achilles tendons for a 64-year-old male patient who visited our clinic due to claudication and infected surgical wound after the open repair of Achilles tendon rupture. (B) After complete resection of the infected Achilles tendon, he was treated with a 6-week short leg cast and then 6-week short leg brace, and the continuity of fibrous tissue was observed in ultrasound image 5 years after the surgery. His activity was recovered as same with the pre-injury level. Complete resection of infected Achilles tendon was performed and treated in the order of a 6-week short leg cast and then 6-week short leg brace. The ultrasound image at postoperative 5 year showed the continuity of fibrous tissue and the patients was recovered to previous injury activity level. (C) Ultrasound image for contralateral side.
