I was diagnoses with acute complete tear of peroneal retinaculum and subluxation of the perneous longus and brevis tendons what's the treatment?
The retinaculum is a band that holds the peroneus muscle tendons down against the outside aspect of the foot. It provides a tunnel through which the tendons maintain their position and fulcrum action.
Surgery is the only way to correct this problem. Since the retinaculum is ligamentous and has no true blood supply it cannot heal itself and thus surgical repair is necessary.
See you foot doctor!! ...Read more

My peroneal brevis tendon is torn. I had an ankle injury and surgery before this tear was found. Is it possible it was already there and overlooked?
Very possible: Not sure what type of ankle injury you had, but if you were in an motor vehicle accident and broke your ankle, there is a high possibility that you damaged your peroneal tendons. A lot of time, x-ray is the only diagnostic tool that is used by doctors. Soft tissue injuries such as tendon tears do not show up in x-rays. So unless they did the MRI along with x-rays then, it was simple missed. ...Read more
