Radiographic, Clinical, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Analysis of Insertional Achilles Tendinopathy

Abstract: The surgical correction of insertional Achilles tendinopathy (IAT) repair typically involves tendon debridement, osteophyte removal, lengthening of the gastroc-soleus complex, and resection of the posterior superior calcaneal eminence. Limited evidence has supported decompression of the superior calcaneal prominence, because this step has had a pronounced association with the surgical treatment of Haglund’s syndrome. To appreciate the posterior calcaneal abnormality, 20 lateral weightbearing radiographs of asymptomatic patients were compared with 20 lateral weightbearing radiographs of patients with symptomatic IAT
