In brief: Peroneal tear/ruptur
The peroneal tendons, either the brevis or longus are examined after the incisions are made and after confirmation is made via an mri.
Usually the tendons are partially torn, the frayed pieces are removed and the longitudinal tears are repaired with fine sutures. Wraps can be used to cover the tendon (bovine, porcine or amniotic membranes.
