Abstract

Peroneal tendon disorders are a common cause of persistent posterolateral ankle pain. The diagnosis of peroneal tendon pathology is frequently overlooked by the referring clinician, who is often unfamiliar with this pathology. In this chapter, we discuss our nonoperative protocol as well as our surgical management of peroneal tendon repair, tenolysis, tenodesis, SPR repair/fibular groove deepening for tendon instability, excision of an os peroneum, and tendon reconstruction with autograft/allograft transfers. Also discussed is our postoperative protocol as well as pearls/pitfalls during surgery
