In many cases fractures can be treated with non-operative management such as casting, immobilization and/or bracing. However, depending on the fracture pattern and location surgical management may be necessary to achieve optimal outcomes.
Similarly, depending on the location of tendon rupture it may require surgical repair. In the case of surgical management of tendon ruptures, early intervention is normally recommended due to increased scarring and retraction of the tendon over time. However, even in the case of chronic tendon ruptures, surgical repair is generally still possible.
