Clinical Trial Summary

This is a prospective cohort study that will follow 60 patients treated with Proximal Medial Gastrocnemius Recession for Chronic Mid-Portion Achilles Tendinopathy for 5 years postoperatively.


Clinical Trial Description

Mid Portion Achilles Tendinopathy is a condition that usually resolves by itself without any kind of intervention. If the condition becomes chronic, eccentric training guided by a physical therapist seems to be the best non-surgical intervention. Surgical treatment has shown varying results and no gold-standard exists. Tightness in the gastrocnemius muscle seems to be a contributing factor for many conditions in the foot and ankle region. Retrospective material suggest that Proximal Medial Gastrocnemius Recession (PMGR) can be an effective treatment for this condition. No prospective material exists. This study aims at including 60 patients with Chronic Mid-Portion Achilles Tendinopathy (CMPAT) that is non-responsive to eccentric training. Patients will be PMGR-surgery and followed for 5 years with PROMS, muscle function test and MRI scans. ;
