BACKGROUND: Transfer of a flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon can not only reconstruct the Achilles tendon but also provide ischemic tendinous tissues with a rich blood supply to enhance wound healing. This retrospective study aims to investigate clinical outcomes in patients who underwent repair of Kuwada grade IV chronic Achilles tendon rupture with long hallucis longus tendons harvested using a minimally invasive technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 35 patients who were treated for Kuwada grade IV Achilles tendon injuries from July 2006 to June 2011 were included in this retrospective study...

PURPOSE: Medial displacement calcaneal osteotomy with flexor digitorum longus transfer is a common treatment for the management of the adult flatfoot associated with posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. In the literature, there is a paucity of information regarding the ability of patients to return to sport and recreational activities after this surgical procedure. The purpose of this retrospective clinical study was to assess the rate and type of athletic activities that patients participated in before and after medial displacement calcaneal osteotomy with flexor digitorum longus transfer...

: Introduction Achilles tendon and posterior heel wound complications are difficult to treat. These typically require soft tissue coverage via microvascular free tissue transfer at a tertiary referral center. Here, we describe coverage of a series of posterior heel and Achilles wounds via simple, local tissue transfer, called a bipedicle fasciocutaneous flap. This flap can be performed by an orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeon, without resources of tertiary/specialized care or microvascular support...

Severe motorcycle spoke injuries of the heel lead to Achilles tendon defects, calcaneal tubercle exposure or loss, and overlying soft tissue defects, which are challenging to treat. Given the special physiological and developmental characteristics of children, severe spoke injuries of the heel in children are especially troublesome.We report details of 31 cases of severe motorcycle spoke injuries of the heel in children. The reconstruction timing depended on the time since injury, systematic conditions, and concurrent injuries...

We present the case of a 31-year-old man who sustained a hyperplantar flexion injury of his right ankle, and was evaluated using computed tomography and MRI to assess for osseous and ligamentous injury. The MRI and CT studies demonstrated a tibioastragalus anticus of Gruber (TAAG) muscle in the lower limb's anterior compartment. To our knowledge, the imaging of this muscle has not been previously described. The TAAG muscle arises from the lower third of the anterolateral tibia and the interosseous membrane...

UNLABELLED: Background When Achilles tendon ruptures become chronic, a defect often forms at the rupture site. There is scant literature regarding the treatment of chronic Achilles ruptures with defects of 6 cm or larger. We examined outcomes from combining a turndown of the proximal, central Achilles with a flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon transfer to treat this condition. Materials Between September 2002 and December 2013, 32 patients presented with a chronic Achilles rupture and a defect of 6 cm or more...

The presence of accessory tendons in the foot and ankle needs to be recognized, given that depending on their location, they may cause disorders relating either to pain processes or to handling of the surgical findings. We describe the presence of an accessory flexor tendon of the toes, seen in surgical exposure for transferring the long flexor tendon of the hallux to the calcaneus, due to the presence of a disorder of tendinopathy of the insertion of the calcaneal tendon in association with Haglund's syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Peroneal tendon subluxation is an uncommon cause of lateral ankle pain and instability but can be disabling for some young patients. Surgical management may be required to restore function for patients who fail nonoperative management. The purpose of this study was to determine the functional outcomes after surgical management of peroneal tendon subluxation in pediatric and adolescent patients. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients presenting to our institution over a 10-year period yielded 18 cases of recurrent subluxation refractory to nonoperative management in 14 children or young adults (mean age 15...

BACKGROUND: Anterior transfer of posterior tibial tendon (PTT) is the most common technique to correct foot drop in patients with common peroneal nerve palsy. It does not address the loss of toe extension or "toe drop." This may affect the gait pattern, and patients may not tolerate it. Described here is a technique that addresses toe drop associated with common peroneal nerve palsy. METHOD: A new technique of tendon transfer using the PTT, flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon, and flexor digitorum longus (FDL) tendon was performed on 15 patients (13 males and 2 females) with complete common peroneal nerve palsy from 2009 to 2013...

OBJECTIVE: To objectively compare outcomes of nonoperative management and posterior tibial tendon (PTT) transfer for peroneal nerve injury due to multiligament knee injury (MLI). DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study with prospective follow-up. SETTING: Tertiary care institution. PATIENTS: Ten patients with peroneal nerve injury due to MLI (5 managed nonoperatively, 5 with PTT transfer) were evaluated and a control group of 4 patients without peroneal nerve injury...

Compartment syndrome at the lower extremity, if overlooked or treated inadequately in polytraumatized and multiply injured patients, regularly leads to progressive foot deformities and severe loss of function in the affected patients. The sequelae of compartment syndrome directly result from muscle contracture, necrosis and scarring and are further affected over time by gravity and posture (especially the sleeping position with the foot in equinus and inversion). While overlooked compartment syndrome of the lower leg leads to deformities of the whole foot, most frequently equinovarus, compartment syndrome of the foot results in painful toe deformities, mostly hammer or claw toes...

Chronic Achilles tendon rupture posed significant disability to the patients. Flexor hallucis longus (FHL) transfer can be used to restore the plantarflexion power of the ankle. Traditionally, a long medial incision with extensive soft tissue dissection is needed for FHL transfer. With the advance in flexor hallucis tendoscopy, endoscopic FHL tendon transfer can be performed without extensive soft tissue dissection.

BACKGROUND: Tibialis anterior tendon (TAT) rupture is an uncommon injury, however, it can cause substantial deficit. Diagnosis is often delayed due to lack of initial symptoms; yet loss of function over time typically causes the patient to present for treatment. This delay usually ends up with major defects creating a great technical challenge for the operating surgeon. We present a novel technique and operative algorithm for the management of chronic TAT ruptures with a major gap after a delayed diagnosis not otherwise correctable with currently described techniques in the literature...

Peroneal nerve palsy is the most common entrapment neuropathy of the lower extremity. Numerous etiologies have been identified; however, compression remains the most common cause. Although injury to the nerve may occur anywhere along its course from the sciatic origin to the terminal branches in the foot and ankle, the most common site of compressive pathology is at the level of the fibular head. The most common presentation is acute complete or partial foot drop. Associated numbness in the foot or leg may be present, as well...

UNLABELLED: Lesser digital deformities may present a surgical challenge to even the most skilled foot and ankle surgeon. Multiplanar toe deformities, including the crossover toe, are especially difficult to correct with reproducible results. Undercorrection, pain, stiffness, and recurrent deformity are well reported throughout foot and ankle literature. The goal of this article is to describe a method of correcting digital deformity utilizing the extensor digitorum brevis tendon transfer and a biotenodesis screw...

Tendon transfer procedures are used commonly for the correction of soft tissue imbalances and instabilities. The complete transfer and the split transfer of the tibialis anterior tendon are well-accepted methods for the treatment of idiopathic equinovarus deformity in children and adults. Throughout the literature, complete and split transfer have been shown to yield significant improvements in ankle and foot range of motion and muscle function. At present, there is insufficient evidence to recommend one procedure over the other, although the split procedure has been advocated for consistently achieving inversion to eversion muscle balance without overcorrection...
