This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the effects (benefits and harms) of different conservative interventions for the primary or postsurgical management of acute Achilles tendon ruptures.

The main focus will be on comparisons of different types and durations of splintage. Findings for primary and postsurgical management will be presented separately.
