By and large, tendons may be injured in one of three ways: Acute trauma, which is a sudden event that causes serious damage to a previously normal tendon; chronic overuse injury, which amounts to cumulative damage from repetitive, micro-tear-causing stress that compromises the ability of a tendon to withstand tension; and sudden trauma brought on by repetitive overuse, as in an Achilles tendon rupture
, which most often shows evidence of lesser injury prior to the rupture.

The Achilles tendon typically fails by the same mechanism , though there are no reports to date of simultaneous tuberosity avulsion and complete Achilles tendon rupture
. We present a case of a displaced calcaneal tuberosity avulsion with concomitant Achilles tendon rupture
necessitating repair at the time of fracture fixation and discuss a novel hybrid technique of dual fixation that helps to increase the stability of the fracture fixation and alleviate the stresses exerted by the pull of the Achilles tendon.
