How To Manage Peroneal Tendon Subluxation

Start Page: 62

Additional Tips, Pearls And Insights

• Most often, subluxing peroneal repairs are in conjunction with a lateral ankle stabilization (Broström) procedure so a slightly more anterior and longer incision is necessary.

• Researchers recently described a slightly posterior incision for a combined Dwyer calcaneal osteotomy and superior peroneal retinaculum repair.52

• Use a flat tamp as depicted on page 3 to cover a broader surface.

• Absorbable sutures are recommended for repair to avoid suture knot irritation.

• Early postoperative mobilization is a key to avoid tendon scarring and adhesion.
