What is a "rupture"?

A rupture refers to a sudden break or tear in a body tissue or organ, such as a muscle, tendon, blood vessel, or internal organ. This can happen due to injury, overuse, or medical conditions. Ruptures often cause severe pain, swelling, and loss of function in the affected area. Depending on the seriousness and location, treatment can range from rest and supportive care to surgical repair to restore normal function and prevent complications.
