Biomechanical Analysis of Krackow Suture Fixation Strength of Cadaver Achilles Tendon with Loop Distance Variance of 5 mm, 7.5 mm, and 10 mm

SUMMARY Background. The incidence of Achilles tendon rupture continues to increase significantly from year to year. The Krackow technique for Achilles tendon repair has proven to be stronger than two clinical standards, Kessler modification technique, and Bunnel technique. However, the incidence of re-rupture and complications in the Krackow technique is still high if an earlier mobilization is carried … Continued
