Wies, MPH, Laura Raymond, MA, Sara Anderson, MPH, Kevin Boyer and Patrick Sluka, MPH J Am Acad Orthop Surg, Vol 18, No 8, August 2010 This clinical practice guideline is based on a series of systematic reviews of published studies in the available literature on the diagnosis and treatment of acute Achilles tendon rupture. None of the 16 recommendations made by the work group was graded as strong; most are graded inconclusive; four are graded weak; two are graded as moderate strength; and two are consensus statements. The two moderate-strength recommendations include the suggestions for early postoperative protective weight bearing and for the use of protective devices that allow for postoperative mobilization.
