Number of used suture 9.5±3.03 8.1±3.21 0.208
Calf circumference (cm) 1.15±0.75 0.89±0.56 0.293
Single heel rise 34 (100) 9 (90.0) 0.227
Stiffness 5 (14.7) 1 (10.0) >0.999
Return to normal activity 24 (70.6) 7 (70.0) >0.999

Values are presented number (%) or mean±standard deviation.

MRI: magnetic resonance imaging.

*Statistically significant (p<0.05). Stiffness: decrease of passive ankle dorsiflexion range compared to normal side ≥5°.
