Complete rupture of the Achilles tendon typically presents in male athletes in their 30s or 40s. The site of rupture may or may not be at the watershed area with poor blood supply. Most of the patients may claim that they felt like they were being kicked or hit in the back of the leg. An audible snap may be noted. Pain may not be a major concern. However, the patient will notice grossly diminished function of the leg.

The patient will be limping but will not be severely disabled as normal movements of the leg are maintained through the use of compensatory muscles. Most of the patients are able to walk but will have difficulty standing on the toes.

The following four clinical tests are most commonly used to examine complete rupture of Achilles tendon:
  1. Upon careful observation of a patient lying face down (prone) with both ankles fully relaxed, the foot on the side of ruptured tendon hangs straight down as there is no muscle-tendon tone; whereas the foot on the healthy side will be slightly plantarflexed.
  2. There may be an obvious, palpable gap in the tendon, approximately 3-6 cm.
  3. There will be a significant reduction of the strength of plantarflexion.
  4. Simmond’s or Thomson’s calf squeeze test will be positive. The foot will not have the plantarflexion movement when pressure is applied on the calf.
