Achilles Repair

Surgical Technique



Haglund’s deformity excision and Achilles reconstruction begins with the dissection of the diseased insertional Achilles to reveal the Haglund’s deformity. The deformity is then excised using the Hall® MicroFree™ Cordless Small Bone Power System. Then, the Achilles is fixated to the calcaneus with anchors proximally and distally.  

Flexor Hallucis Longus (FHL) Tendon Transfer is an autologous tendon transfer procedure intended to reinforce a severely diseased or mid-substance ruptured Achilles tendon. The FHL Tendon is released proximal to the calcaneus, sutured to the Achilles, and fixated distally to the superior-posterior calcaneus with an anchor.
