Twenty one patients with neglected rupture of calcaneal tendon resenting at an interval of four to twenty four weeks after injury, were repaired following excision of the intervening fibrous tissue. VY plasty was done in 14 cases, as approximation of the ends could not be achieved. Two Kirschner wires, introduced transversly, one each in proximal and distal part of the ruptured tendon were incorporated in the cast. Results were assessed at a follow up, ranging from one to fifteen years. None of the patients, had re-rupture. Three of our patients developed wound infection while skin necrosis was noticed in three. Most of our patients returned to their activity which they had enjoyed prior to rupture.
