This book on Achilles tendon disorders is the fourth production of the Achilles Tendon Study Group (ATSG) and is the final part of the Current Concepts series on Achilles tendon disorders. In collaboration with world leaders in this field, the ATSG has reviewed the available literature to provide a balanced consensus on the scope of Achilles tendon disorders.
In this ‘golden edition’ the previous three editions are bundled, updated and supplemented with new chapters. Therefore this production provides the reader with a state-of-the-art overview of the current concepts on all Achilles tendon related problems, both acute injuries and chronic disorders, based on the best available evidence and expert opinions.

The focus of this fourth book is mainly on the available treatments and the basis on which they are founded, diagnostics, the outcome measures available to standardize future clinical studies, and future treatment. Surgical techniques are extensively described and a comprehensive overview of the outcomes, based on the best available evidence, is provided. Furthermore, general issues like anatomy, epidemiology, and the aetiology of Achilles tendon disorders are addressed, as well as current insights in the field of biomechanics, sport resumption and Achilles problems in the paediatric population.
