In brief: A teat
A tendon rupture is when a tendon tears, usually pulling off the boneyard attachment but sometimes in the middle of the tendon.
This injury occurs when the muscle is contracting and there is a sudden opposite force on the joint.

In brief: Complete disruption
A tendon is a continuation of the muscle and serves to attach the muscle to the bone.
A complete rupture of the tendon completely disrupts the muscle function. Tears can occur at the bony insertion of the tendon, the intrasubstance of the tendon or the myotendonis junction, ie where the tendon converges at the muscle.

In brief: Tendon hand surgery
Lacerated or injured tendons and others blunt injury is often called a rupture if the tendon is not in continuity, one sees the tendon fibrs are discontinuous and frequently neo tendon or psuedo tendon which s just scar forms in the onterval but it is weak and friable vs strong tendon tissue.
