Posterior heel pain may occur after an Achilles insertional rupture reattachment procedure and could be attributed to an impingement between the calcaneal tuberosity and Achilles tendon, which could be observed using postoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Moreover, such impingement, which may be associated with postoperative pain symptoms, could be relieved by calcaneoplasty.
