Swami gives us some board review of Achilles tendon rupture from Crunch Time EM.
Achilles’ tendons can be treated both op and non-op (so they “all” don’t require surgery-but definitely need ortho follow up to arrive at a treatment course).
Sample literature: https://www.bmj.com/content/364/bmj.k5120
Corrections at ~00.34 Pt has difficulty plantar flexion not dorsiflexion. Just misspoke since gets it right later.
Great catch, Nich. Should definitely be difficulty with plantar flexion. Thanks for keeping us honest!
Thanks for a great format! i really like listening to the daily dose.Like Dennis I just wanted to add that surgery is not necessary in many cases (although a surgical consultation always is).Best JasminPS: Sorry, I sent another comment before which was longer and mixed up and can be deleted
