Abstract
We report an inusual case of a simultaneous and spontaneous bilateral Achilles tendon ruptures, in a 74 years- old male, without traumatic previous. The patient previously had been diagnosed of a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The ultrasonography not confirms the bilateral Achilles tendon ruptures. We do an opened surgery revision, and confirm the initial suspicion, and a bilateral reconstructed and bilateral immobilized with two groinfoot gypsums, for 4 weeks in the equinus position and then in the neutral position for 2 weeks without weightbearing, with posterior ambulatory rehabilitation. We obtain a completely reparation with normal walk.
