from Orthopedics Today
Gastrocnemius recession can be helpful in some cases for the treatment of patients with chronic Achilles tendinopathy, according to a presenter. “We believe the outcomes from this study provide some new information regarding ankle muscle power and endurance and may be used to help guide selection of appropriate candidates for this procedure,” Benedict F. DiGiovanni, M.D., said during his presentation at the International Federation of Foot & Ankle Societies Triennial Meeting.
