Cause of tear....: This is difficult to answer without knowing the time frame of when the injury occurred and when the various types of treatments were tried as well as the severity and location of the tear. Ill timed p.t. and steroid use can not only be unsuccessful, but, in some specific circumstances, can actually delay the healing. It might be time for another opinion. ...Read more

I was diagnoses with acute complete tear of peroneal retinaculum and subluxation of the perneous longus and brevis tendons what's the treatment?

I was diagnoses with acute complete tear of peroneal retinaculum and subluxation of the perneous longus and brevis tendons what's the treatment?

Surgery: 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

Ankle MRI report - ant tib tendon bowing, tendonitis in ant tib, tenosynovitis in posterior tib, mild tendonitis  in Achilles'. Best treatment?

Cold compresses help: I have found that tendinitis frequently responds to application of cold compresses, particularly gel devices kept in a freezer which when applied to tendinitis will cut the inflammation down and provide comfort without the potential side effects of listed medications (which help as well but can cause considerable side effects). Such gel devices can be found in drug stores (OTC). ...Read more

Common: Peroneal tendon tears are common and often resolve without surgery.

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?

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
