Article review title : “Acute Achilles Tendon Rupture”, Investigation performed at the Department of Orthopaedics, Malm¨o University Hospital, Lund University, Malm¨o, Sweden,and the Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University Hospital, Lund, Sweden 2012.
The article, “Acute Achilles Tendon Rupture “, summary of this article is not intended to stand alone. Treatment results should be based on the condition of the sick individual. The treatment and procedures used for the individual depend on the shared communication between the patient, the doctor and other health officers. The record of all 487 patients with acute Achilles ruptured tendons that occurred between 2002 and 2006 and was treated in one of the two Swedish hospitals of the hospital

At one to seven years after the Achilles tendon rupture, the main patient is assessed for complications, Achilles acute ruptured tendons are calculated, increased heel increment rate, and calf circumcision measured.
Based on this article, as a result of surgical and nonsurgical treatment without surgery compared between patients with sex. The minimum age of injury is forty-five years. In the group's surgical treatment at Hospital 1, six of the 201 patients recovered and three had an infection. In the treatment of the nonsurgical group at Hospital 2, the rate breaks were fifteen from 227. When the decision was taken or recorded for treatment surgery at Hospital 1 was compared to the treatment of the nonsurgical group at Hospital 2, there was no significant difference in the score. Women with nonsurgical

Age and sex play an important role in analyzing Achilles tendon rupture studies in surgical and nonsurgical methods. In this analysis, it cannot confirm the advantages of performing Achilles tendon surgery. This study are related to recent studies that show better results in nonsurgical treatments. Continuous separation between the torn tendons ending with the legs in the groove plantar are clues for surgery, can facilitate the selection of patients may get surgical treatment or not. The need for additional studies compares surgical and nonsurgical treatments to women and maybe even fifty years old men are obvious. However, to achieve statistical power, it may need to be carried out as a multicentre study. The effect of certain methods of conversion (brace versus cast) and its effects on ATRS should also be addressed further. In conclusion, a good ATRS score in the nonsurgical condition of the treated group, along with relatively low rebound rates and other complications, makes this treatment a better choice for most patients. However, the tendency to lower rates and performance in terms of heel increments after surgical treatment indicates that surgery may be beneficial for some
