Spontaneous rupture peroneal tendon

Emilio Wagner, Pablo Wagner, Cristian Ortiz, Ruben Radkievich, Felipe Palma, Rodrigo Guzmán-Venegas
BACKGROUND: No clear guideline or solid evidence exists for peroneal tendon tears to determine when to repair, resect, or perform a tenodesis on the damaged tendon. The objective of this study was to analyze the mechanical behavior of cadaveric peroneal tendons artificially damaged and tested in a cyclic and failure mode. The hypothesis was that no failure would be observed in the cyclic phase. METHODS: Eight cadaveric long leg specimens were tested on a specially designed frame...

The natural history of recurrent uric acid deposition includes joint destruction, as well as tendon weakening and rupture. Simultaneous rupture of the peroneus longus and brevis tendons secondary to tophaceous gout is very rare. In the present report, we describe the case of a 37-year-old man who had a history of recurrent ankle pain and 4 previous episodes of acute gout localized to his ipsilateral first metatarsophalangeal joint. The physical examination revealed the ankle pain to actually be localized to the peroneal tendons immediately distal to the fibular malleolar groove...

Rupture of the peroneal tendons is rare, particularly rupture of peroneus longus. We report a case of a peroneus longus rupture following repeated steroid injection for chronic pain.

OBJECTIVE: To discuss applied anatomy, biomechanics and surgical procedures of long peroneal muscles tendon transposition in repair of occlusive achilles tendon rupture. METHODS: The blood supply and the morphology of long peroneal muscles tendon were observed in the lower extremity of 50 sides adult specimens and the mechanical tests which stretch load on the tendon were carried out. The methods were designed on the basis of the anatomical characteristics and morphology...

The authors report a case of longitudinal tendon tears of the peroneus longus and brevis in the presence of tophaceous gouty infiltration. There are a limited number of reports discussing similar processes affecting various tendons throughout the body. There has been 1 prior case of peroneal tendon involvement affecting only the peroneus brevis. A 35-year-old man presented with a 4-year history of left-sided lateral ankle pain, redness, and swelling. The patient described the "attacks" as occurring off and on, with a recent increase in frequency...

Tears of the peroneus brevis tendon are more frequent than reported in the literature. Because of the vague pain associated with structures of the lateral ankle, peroneal tears are frequently misdiagnosed. Physical signs such as swelling along the course of the peroneal tendon sheath, pain with eversion, and subluxing tendons are diagnostic of peroneal pathologic conditions. The cause of peroneal tears is not completely understood. Possible causes include subluxing peroneal tendons, a sharp posterior ridge of the fibula, overcrowding of the peroneal groove, instability of the superior peroneal retinaculum, lateral ankle instability, contraction of the peroneus longus, hypovascularity of the peroneus brevis tendon, and a shallow peroneal groove of the fibula...

Chronic peroneus brevis tendon tears are frequently overlooked or misdiagnosed. They are a more common problem than previously noted. Twenty patients were reviewed in the largest clinical series of its kind. The most reliable diagnostic sign was persistent swelling along the peroneal tendon sheath. The pathophysiologic mechanism is subclinical, or overt, subluxation of the tendon over the posterolateral edge of the fibula. This produces multiple longitudinal splits. Treatment is primarily surgical and must address both the split tendon and the subluxation that caused it...

The authors overview tibialis posterior dysfunction (TPD) with emphasis on a criteria-oriented surgical protocol for management of the various clinical and pathologic stages of TPD. Subluxation of the peroneal tendons is also detailed with respect to diagnosis and treatment.

Analysis of an on-going prospective study of seventy-seven hinged total knee arthroplasties in sixty-seven patients revealed that most patients had improvement in function, although major complications occurred in eighteen knees (23.4 per cent. These complications included sepsis, loosening, patellar tendon rupture, peroneal palsy, and patellar subluxation. Eight of nine knees with deep sepsis required removal of the prosthesis, and three of sixteen knees with patellar pain required realignment of the quadriceps...

Twelve cases of stenosing tenosynovitis about the ankle (eight posterior tibial and four peroneal), with at least 2 to 4 years of follow-up, have been successfully relieved of their symptoms and returned to increased activity by utilizing a simplified comprehensive surgical technique. Surgery consists of: 1) appropriate treatment to the tendon itself whether intact, partially ruptured, or completely ruptured; 2) deepening of the constricted groove; 3) fashioning of new pulleys from available sheath and retinaculum; and 4) construction of a new sheath from regional deep fascia...

Spontaneous rupture of the tibialis anterior tendon occurred in a 65-year-old man with diabetes mellitus. Treatment with sliding tendon lengthening of the proximal portion of the tibialis anterior tendon was successful. This unusual injury occurs in diabetics older than 45 years of age, following minor trauma. The condition can be misdiagnosed as peroneal nerve deficit. Tibialis anterior tendon deficit should be included in the differential diagnosis of patients with isolated weakness of foot dorsiflexion.

While awareness of synovial rupture of the knee joint confirmed by early arthrography increases, concomitant deep-vein occlusion may be being overlooked. Two cases of this are described, illustrating different mechanisms of venous occlusion by synovial rupture. Early thrombosis occurred in one patient from direct pressure as a result of haematoma following anticoagulant therapy and in another due to presumed external irritation of the vein. Although isolated bursae do not apparently rupture, tendon sheaths occasionally do...
