Achilles tendon

AT 60

60 fibers - resistance of† 2600 Newton

The AT 60 ligament is used for Achilles tendon repair.† This ligament consists of three parts:

  • the proximal portion is flat, corresponding to the proximal segment of the ruptured tendon,

  • the intermediate portion has open longitudinal fibers corresponding to the ruptured area,

  • the distal portion is cylindrical, with a diameter of 5.5 mm, corresponding to the distal portion of the ruptured ligament.

The flat part is attached in the depth of the proximal tendon by stitches, and the cylindrical part is drilled into the posterior tuberosity of the calcaneum.
