Is There a Relation between AOFAS Ankle-Hindfoot Score and SF-36 in Evaluation of Achilles Ruptures Treated by Percutaneous Technique?

Abstract: The percutaneous technique of Achilles tendon repair seems to offer satisfactory clinical and functional results, although these results have been evaluated mainly using objective rating scales. Recently, some “subjective” rating scales have been combined to evaluate the results of various surgical treatments. The purpose of the present study was to compare the results of a percutaneous Achilles tendon repair evaluated objectively using the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) ankle-hindfoot score and subjectively using the Medical Outcomes Study, short-form, 36-item questionnaire (SF-36) questionnaire.
