Anterior Bursitis Of The Achilles Tendon

(Albert’s disease; retromalleoläre bursitis)

An anterior achilles tendon bursitis is an inflammation of the retromalleolar (retrokalkanealen) Bursa, which is (low) located in front of the anterior approach of the tendon to the calcaneus. The diagnosis is made clinically essentially. The treatment includes local injections.

(See also overview of diseases of the feet and ankles.) An anterior bursitis of the Achilles tendon is an inflammation of retromalleolar (retrokalkanealen) Bursa, the (deep) is located in front of the approach of the tendon at the calcaneus anterior. The diagnosis is made clinically essentially. The treatment includes local injections. Bursitis in the heel Normally there is only one bursa in the heel, between the Achilles tendon and the heel bone. This bursa can become inflamed, swollen and painful, resulting in bursitis of the front hamstring. The bursitis is most commonly caused by trauma (eg. As caused by too rigid or ill-fitting footwear) (z. B. RA, gout) or an inflammatory underlying disease causes. Occasionally, small erosions in the calcaneus may result from massive inflammation. Symptoms and signs In traumatic origin or gout develop very quickly the symptoms and discomfort, more gradually at another systemic disease. It often comes around to pain, swelling and warmth around the heel, as well as difficulty in walking and putting on shoes. The bursa is pressure sensitive. Initially, the swelling in front of the Achilles tendon is located, but then extends medially and laterally. Diagnosis Clinical Diagnosis and radiographs A fracture of the talar tubercle posterolateral usually caused pressure pain before the approach of Achillissehne. A bursitis can be carried directly identifiable to the tendon swelling and warmth and primarily define localized pain from the fracture in the soft tissue. Even the side of the Achilles tendon causes pain ventral side squeezing the thumb and index finger. In addition, radiographs should be made to rule out a fracture and uncover erosive Kalkaneusveränderungen as part of a chronic RA and other rheumatic diseases. Therapy injection of a combination of local anesthetic and corticosteroid in the bursa The injection of a combination of a corticosteroid and topical anesthetic, NSAIDs, as well as hot or cold compresses are therapeutically effective. It must be taken to inject only the bursa sac and not the tendon, as the injection of the tendon to weaken or strain can cause, predisposing for subsequent rupture.
