Achilles tendon rupture is one of the most common tendon injury in adult population. Synthetic ligament has been an attractive alternative for reconstruction chronic Achilles tendon tears. Ligament reconstruction with the LARS ligament has been a popular choice owing to its low-complication rates. LARS ligament is a non-absorbable synthetic ligament device. There are no long-term results of LARS ligament reconstruction for Achilles tendon reconstruction in literature. We describe a successful management of foreign body granuloma in a LARS ligament Achilles tendon graft and a technique to reconstruct the tendon following its excision.
