  1. Demographic and clinical characteristics of ATR patients included in study. Data presented as mean ± Standard Deviation. (BMI Body mass index, TTS Time to surgery, ATRS Achilles tendon Total Rupture Scale (0–100, and 0–10 for each subscale, worst = 0), FAOS Foot and Ankle Outcome Score (0–100, worst = 0 for each catagory), HRT Heal Rise Test (0–100, worst = 0 for each catagory); ADL Activities of Daily Living, QOL Quality of Life, LSI Limb Symmetry Index) aPatients with residual symptoms (0–100, worst = 100) were categorized as ≤ 99 in ATRS, ≤ 9 in ATR sub-scales, ≤ 99 in FAOS and ≤ 99% in HRT ratio. n/N = number of patients/total number of study patients.
