Ruptured peroneal tendon

Aki Fukuda, Akinobu Nishimura, Shigeto Nakazora, Ko Kato, Akihiro Sudo
We describe entrapment of the common peroneal nerve by a suture after surgical repair of the distal biceps femoris tendon. Complete rupture of the distal biceps femoris tendon of a 16-year-old male athlete was surgically repaired. Postoperative common peroneal nerve palsy was evident, but conservative treatment did not cause any neurological improvement. Reexploration revealed that the common peroneal nerve was entrapped by the surgical suture. Complete removal of the suture and external neurolysis significantly improved the palsy...

Peroneal tendon pathology is a commonly reported cause of lateral ankle pain. The causes include cavovarus foot type, overuse, chronic tendinosis, peroneal subluxation or dislocation, acute traumatic split tears, and traumatic rupture. The purpose of the present report is to describe an alternative approach for surgical reconstruction of the peroneal tendons in patients when repair might no longer be effective. The use of a Hunter rod was originally described by Hunter in 1971 for 2-stage reconstruction of tendons in the hand...

A multiple-ligament knee injury that includes posterolateral corner (PLC) disruption often causes palsy of the common peroneal nerve (CPN), which occurs in 44% of cases with PLC injury and biceps femoris tendon rupture or avulsion of the fibular head. Approximately half of these cases do not show functional recovery. This case report aims to present a criteria-based approach to the operation and postoperative management of CPN palsy that resulted from a multiple-ligament knee injury in a 22-year-old man that occurred during judo...

BACKGROUND: Chronic ruptures of the tibialis anterior tendon are often associated with tendon retraction and poor-quality tissue, resulting in large segmental defects that make end-to-end repair impossible. Interpositional allograft reconstruction has previously been described as an operative option in these cases; however, there are no reports of the clinical outcomes of this technique in the literature. METHODS: Eleven patients with chronic tibialis anterior tendon ruptures underwent intercalary allograft recon-struction between 2006 and 2013...

BACKGROUND: Ankle joint injuries are extremely common sports injuries, with the anterior talofibular ligament involved in the majority of ankle sprains. There have been only a few large magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies on associated structural injuries after ankle sprains. PURPOSE: To describe the injury pattern in athletes who were referred to MRI for the assessment of an acute ankle sprain and to assess the risk of associated traumatic tissue damage including lateral and syndesmotic ligament involvement...

Reports have demonstrated that peroneal tendon tears can be successfully treated by direct repair or debridement and tubularization, based on the extent and nature of the pathology. Irreparable peroneal tendon tears or completely unsalvageable tendons after failure of previously attempted repairs are rare, and as a result there is a lack of high-level evidence to guide the management of these complex injuries. When irreparable tears are encountered the salvage options include tenodesis, bridging of the defect using allografts or autografts, and tendon transfers...

OBJECTIVE: Isolated cuboid stress fractures are rare. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the MRI appearance of this condition. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective search for patients with the diagnosis of a cuboid stress fracture was performed for a 19-year period. All patients underwent an initial three-view radiographic foot series for pain. MRI was performed because symptoms persisted beyond 4 weeks. RESULTS: Ten patients, nine of whom were women, were diagnosed with isolated cuboid stress fractures...

BACKGROUND: Although peroneal tendon injuries are a common cause of lateral ankle pain, there is a paucity of literature specifically addressing the treatment of severe concomitant peroneus longus and brevis tears. The purpose of this study was to evaluate patient outcomes following a single-stage flexor tendon transfer for the treatment of severe concomitant tears of both peroneal tendons. METHODS: Eight patients were treated with a single-stage flexor tendon transfer for severe concomitant peroneus longus and brevis tears over a 15-year period...

In Greek mythology, Achilles was a hero of the Trojan War, the central character and greatest warrior of Homer's Iliad. As Achilles died because of a small wound on his heel, the term "Achilles' heel" has come to mean a person's principal weakness. But is the human heel a really vulnerable part of our body? Could a non-poisonous arrow have caused Achilles' death? Should an arrow be necessarily poisonous in order to cause a lethal heel would? The purpose of this effort is to explain, from an anatomic point of view, how Achilles heel wounding could have led to his death...

Peroneal split syndrome refers to longitudinal tearing of the peroneus brevis tendon at the level of the retrofibular groove. It is an increasingly recognized, albeit frequently overlooked, cause of lateral ankle pain. Several surgical options have been documented for managing this entity, however there are no reports emphasizing the role of conservative treatment. A 48-year-old male patient presented to our department with persistent lateral ankle and hindfoot pain over the past 9 months, following an inversion injury to his right ankle...

BACKGROUND: The shortage of autogenous grafts has often times been a problem in knee ligament reconstruction. There are little data concerning the use of the anterior half of the peroneus longus tendon (AHPLT) as an autograft. HYPOTHESIS: The AHPLT is a suitable graft with respect to its strength, safety, and donor site morbidity. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive laboratory study and case series; Level of evidence, 4. METHODS: The safety and efficacy of using the AHPLT as an autograft source were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: This retrospective analysis was prompted by the authors' observation of the relatively high incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in the surgical repair of acute Achilles tendon ruptures. METHOD: 88 patients were treated surgically for an acute Achilles tendon rupture. No prophylactic anticoagulation was given to any patients. The incidence of VTE was then reviewed retrospectively. RESULTS: Five patients developed symptomatic deep vein thrombosis (5,7%) and one a near-fatal pulmonary embolus (1...
